July was probably my favourite month of 2016 because I had such an awesome time. We got to go camping, to the cottage, back to Ottawa, we found our apartment in Ottawa, and I discovered some fun new things.
I started using my journal way more frequently, as a quasi-bullet journal. Technically those are also your agenda, but I want to keep my beautiful new Moleskine (yes, back in a Moleskine, my Ban.Do was wayyy too huge to take in my bag for grad school) as an agenda. In a few weeks I’ll probably post specifics about my bullet journaling, but for now, I use my journal as a habit tracker (that colourful page shown there with the graph-certain tasks I want to be encouraged to do), my editorial calendar for blogging and Instagram, monthly goals, money tracker, my daily gratitude notes (which is technically just a regular journal entry), and fun things like Passion Themed Life’s doodle challenge. I coordinate between my journal and agenda with a new colour for each day to track completed tasks.
Sally Hansen “No Hard Feelings” is my newest favourite nail polish colour. I found it at Dollarama, so obviously got it for super cheap. Yes.
Obviously one of my July favourites has to be the time Nic and I spent at the cottage. I hadn’t been since the September long weekend, so that was pretty hard on me. We had a wonderful time, and I can’t wait until August when we’re going back again!
I love Stiegl radlers- they’re so refreshing in the summer.
There’s a super cool documentary on Netflix-“Fittest on Earth,” which is about the 2015 Reebok Crossfit Games. Nic and I loved watching the movie, and then got obsessed with watching all the lead-up to the 2016 games, and then streamed the games last weekend on YouTube. I’ve never been interested in doing a crossfit workout, but the Games are insane. Those athletes are so talented! Check out their youtube channel and cheer along the athletes!
Obviously I’m obsessed with my thrifted Tevas. Or, rather, someone lost them at camp 4 years ago and never claimed them, so I took them. I do have to reapply glue between the layers to keep them functional, but I feel so old-school hippie with them on.
Nic and I leased our apartment in Ottawa! I’m pretty stoked! It’s a two bedroom, so we’ll have space to host people, have an office, and a fitness room. Can’t wait to share our new place with you!
We also had a great weekend camping at Silent Lake Provincial Park with my family.
