Inspiration: July 8

July

For anyone who feels sad and angry, and doesn’t know what to say in light of the recent shootings in the States, I though that this post and this post were particularly helpful.

Is summer flying by for you? The idea of the Intentional Summer is so inspiring to me, and I love this take on it as well.

Casual gratitude is such a fascinating concept. Do you say sorry when you mean thank you?

If you’re looking for purely visual inspiration, I found this tumblr the other day that I instantly wanted to Pin everything from.

For people who are into sewing, or just want to be impressed, check out this Youtube channel full of thrifted transformations. Very cool.

Important info on shortcuts for any Gmail user! I’m still working on remembering all of these, but they really do make your life easier.

Speaking of email, I just got my invite to Polymail and have been using it for a couple of days now, and so far, I’m loving it.

Such an incredibly beautiful wedding – and that video is off-the-charts amazing.

I finally signed up for Ebates! If you shop through their site, you get cash back on purchases, which is amazing. If you want to get a signup bonus, use this link.

I’ve been really interested in reading about saving money and wealth management lately, and this article was inspiring to read.


It’s been a month since I checked in here! I didn’t intend for that to happen, I just had a couple busy weeks of work and am just now striving to get back to some balance: writing, reading, making, doing nothing. I shared the photo above first on Instagram with this caption:

You know what you need to do.

The last few weeks have been amazing for so many reasons, but they’ve also contained a lot of work and juggling, and I’m starting to feel pretty burned out.

Today I finally took some time to think about it, and the answers were so obvious: create more, consume less. Walk more, sit less. Document more, compulsively check less. Dance more, worry less. Breathe more, sigh less.

Nothing new, nothing groundbreaking, just the same things that I’ve loved for as long as I can remember. Each and every time I stop blogging or taking photos or reading, my quality of life takes a major nosedive. Time to course-correct!

So that’s what I’m trying to do. I’m going away to a friend’s cottage this weekend and intend to totally unplug (no internet up there, so no real choice, but I’ll take it!). I plan to finish reading one of my favourite books, do some yoga, take some pictures, and recharge my soul batteries.

I hope you have a great weekend too. xo.
