A few weeks prior a dream of mine came true…I attended New York Fashion Week (#NYFW) for the first time. Ever since I started my blog last November (the 1 year anniversary is coming up..whoot whoot), I made it a goal of mine to attend the iconic week of fashion. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that day would happen so soon…pinch me!
If you have been following me on social media for the past week, then you would have noticed that I have been galavanting in NYC. I am officially back in Canada and will be back to my normal posting schedule as of today! I am sorry for the lack of posts on www.blarejune.com the past week, I am usually quite consistent but the opportunity to attend New York Fashion Week was somewhat last minute and to say my schedule was jam packed while in the Big Apple would be an understatement. Please forgive me!
Every summer I try to stay local and explore some of the beautiful landmarks our home province has to offer. Recently, in partnership with TELUS, I listed my Top 5 Weekend Getaway Locations Across Nova Scotia. This past weekend, I decided to pack my car and head to one of Nova Scotia’s most cherished gems. Although all of the destinations are equally as enticing, Ingonish was the option that consistently came out on top while planning. During this last-mintue getaway, I was thankfully able to squeeze in all of my favorite summer rituals…..and all within a single weekend. I spent a day at the beach, I went for an evening sail and I ate a large amount of ice cream that could last me a lifetime. This summer has been a busy one as I have worked the majority of the time. Thankfully, after my weekend in Ingonish and being able squeeze in every classic summer activity, I now feel fulfilled until next summer.
Every summer I try to stay local and explore some of the beautiful landmarks our home province has to offer. Whether it is the city of Halifax or surrounding areas, there is so much to see and do locally. For me, traveling is one of my favourite things to do but the thought of a poor mobile connection while away makes me nervous. Although I like to getaway every once and a while for some rest and relaxation, I like to do some work and at the very least stay in touch with friends and family while traveling.
Life is busy, hectic and sometimes goes by so quickly that we forget to take time for ourselves. With such a fast paced lifestyle, not only may we not take time to rest but can also strain our bodies, particularly our muscles, as a result of the consistent hustle and bustle. In the past few years, I have incorporated massages into my monthly self-care regime. Often, I do not get the chance to take the time to relax until I am out of town, but I have discovered quickly that this may actually be ideal.
