With every day sunnier than the next, it’s hard not to love summer in southern California! This week’s post is dedicated to the beauty that surrounds us in the summer – and how sometimes we need a reminder to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine and nature surrounding us.
Every morning in the summer, I like to make a rejuvenation water that is tasty, fresh, and energizing – a perfect start to a summer day! Some of the ingredients, like mint, come straight from my own garden. It’s simple to make and not time consuming – just add some mint, ginger, lemon, turmeric, and a little ice to make it cold and refreshing.
Another great thing about the season is that it’s full of color – from clothing to flowers, there is coloring bursting everywhere! My favorite colors I tend to use in my style more during the summer months are neutral, light colors in easy-flowing cotton fabrics. A bold splash of color is essentially, of course, either as an accessory or a statement piece.
My favorite summer activities include swimming, relaxing poolside with friends and family, and warm destination vacations like Fiji. I especially love being in my backyard this time of year, where I have a mixture of nature all around me–tall mature tress with swings, rose gardens, and a colorful bougainvillea backdrop combined with a cascading waterfall for the pool.
Together, it creates a visually tranquil, natural setting to just sit, breath, and relax after a long day’s work.
