Hey. August is upon us and I’m about to share my plans and favourites of August style.
First of all fruit bowls are here to stay. I’ve talked about them so much already but in this horribly hot august days I can’t force myself to actually cook food and sweat even more so fruit bowls are simple, easy, quick, healthy and refreshing help.
Plus aesthetics of servings are just dreamy.
I am currently reading this incredibly fascinating book my friend Domc already made a review article about on renegade7x called War’s Unwomanly Face – Svetlana Alexievich. This review is one of my favourite she ever wrote and I was strongly encouraged by it to read it for myself and I’m so thrilled I did. Check out the review and book for yourself.
Czech Republic, Slovak republic and pretty much whole of Europe have been struggling with enormous and unbearable heat for the past couple of weeks. My dorm room is so hot my candy melted, plants died and I’m sweating 24/7. My small help in this gross weather and my favourite purchase not only for august but probably of all the time is this :
my new fan:
I can barely function in this heat and all I dream of is a nice cold pool and occasionally I make these dreams come true.
I feel like typical mom saying this but gosh how very important is hydration and sunscreen. Recently I’ve discovered this cute beauty and healthy website called iHerb. I’ve ordered a bunch of products I’m gonna talk about soon. iHerb has a bunch of different categories and products for great prices and my favourite thing besides the variety is the incredibly fast shipping time – 2 days and my package was home. That never happens to me as I’m living in middle Europe. Another plus – they offer Czech currency as well so I didn’t have to recalculate from dollars to Czech coins and to euros.
iHerb provides so many great sunscreens that are must a have this august and even an after sun care for those who believe they are tougher than literal sun.
Check out iHerb – highly recommending.
My hydration morning routine starts with me drinking this vitamin slimming bomb water.
What I do is I boil 0,250l of hot water (yes even in hot august day) and add one spoon of raw honey, juice of half freshly squeezed lemon ( I recommend microwave your half lemon for few seconds – this way you’ll get much more juice) mix it up and add another 0,250l of cold water. I drink this lukewarm water on empty stomach every morning as it’s actually better for your body to drink lukewarm liquids as your body does not need that many additional energy to actually warm the liquids for their further processing.
After this I simply continue with my breakfast as usual I’ll get come croissant and coffee with soy milk.
I never used to be a big fan of breakfast but since I’m on antidepressants and I get to take the pills in the morning I need to have big breakfast before so the pills are not as heavy for my organism – this goes for most of the pills besides the ones you need to take on an empty stomach.
My health comes first and I’m actually keen on breakfast food now.
My current Netflix obsession is show called That 70’s show. Reminds me of F.r.i.e.n.d.s. and boy did I used to watch them a lot. Usually, I have my Netflix on as a background noise for when I’m just working on my Tumblr blog, this website or just scrolling my Instagram feed. I firstly wanted That 70’s show to be just a background noise but I got really into it so now I need to have 2 tabs open and the same time – one for Netflix and one for work.
Love the retro style and sarcastic humour, Hyde is definitely my favourite character I can relate to him so much and their circle cracks me up.
It’s so hard for me to start a new tv show but once I do I let it consume me completely.
But I’m ok with it.
No holidays for me this summer as I’m working my ass off in KFC, writing my heart out on here and there is this new secret project I’ve been working on for the last couple of months I’m super excited about and can’t wait for it to be ready to share with the world.
All of this is taking all my time and I’m so exhausted but in the greatest way possible.
I’m always busy, always thinking, always working and the satisfaction of it is reaffirming me day by day that I made the right decision of dropping out of university. University made me busy and exhausted as well but also miserable. Now I’m just so excited about every day and everything I do.
August I’m excited for you.
Thank you for your attention
