It is time for the new Inspiration Board. Seeing that the month of June is sneaking up on us next week, this is perfect timing to make a new to do list, get motivated, and try out new trends or activities. This month, I am putting a lot of focus on self improvement as I am looking into taking photography classes, learning to rollerblade, and finding a healthy balance between work and school. For now, let’s dive into some June inspiration.
#1. Off the shoulder: I have been spotting this look while looking to expand my summer wardrobe. This is a very elegant look with a little bit of flirtation and skin. I have yet to find the one I like but Zara and H&M are a great start.
#2. Active wear: since Toronto is treating us with sunny days, I have made a promise to myself to make time for long, meditative walks in the park as well as biking. This is a therapeutic activity that lets you clear the mind from all the commotion. I am also planning a trip to Scarborough Bluffs to make room for hiking. Finding the right active wear is key which is why I stocked up on a pair of shorts and shirts.
#3. Seeds: although I enjoy blaming my sweet-tooth, I have made an effort to convert to healthier snacks that have the sweetness element and a health benefit. My recent favourite is using flax, chia, and pumpkin seeds to top of simple meals.
#4. Water: you cannot underestimate the benefits of drinking lots of water. Hydration cleanses the inside and outside. I have realized that I do not drink nearly enough water each day which is why I tend to get tired easily. Now that I have made a conscious effort to drink water regularly, I am doing a lot better. I challenge you to do the same 🙂
#5. Face masks: YES! I live for The Face Shop facial masks. Believe me, these $1-4 masks are a nice way to pamper yourself. Rochelle has written a post earlier about facial masks in general and although they may be short term skin fixes, they are refreshing nevertheless. I am looking to try the ones they sell for the under eye area and the lips and feet.
Now its your turn? Let me know:
What are you looking to try this month? I am looking forward to being inspired by you!
