With the heat wave that has been hovering over San Diego the last few days, we hope everyone has found a way to keep escape the heat. This weather is an excellent excuse to escape to the beach and swim in the cool water. The picture below is from a trip we took to Sydney, Australia, our sister city who also has one season. Summer. Endless Summer. Here are a few things I've been loving this last week...Discovering: I just recently heard about Smart Girls by Amy Poehler, Meredith Walker, and Amy Miles. This blog is meant to be an inspiring place for women of all ages to learn about their true selves. In their bio the women state that they hope the blog opens up resources and experiences for girls, teens, and adults to learn about . They even have camps and workshops for teens to teach them about their opportunities in life. They encourage women to explore and discover new ideas, learn about new topics, and most importantly...to discover themselves.
Reminiscing: A resource party with my friend Taylor McWethy. Taylor is a marketing and advertising specialist. I feel so immensely lucky to have such wonderful friends to collaborate with. We got the inspiration for this from Mighty Girl.
Reading: Year of No Sugar by Eve Schaub. Sugar is my weakness, which is why I decided to read this book. The author explains the hidden effects of consuming as much sugar as Americans do and why it should be cut out of our diets. She also exposes foods which I would never have guessed contain sugar hidden within. This book definitely puts healthy eating into perspective.
Dreaming: of waterslides.
