It’s time for a celebration this week! Independence Day is this Wednesday – in the middle of a workweek. I think it’s kind of nice to have a mid-week break from a regular work week…two days to hit it hard, a break and then two more days to get things done. But what do you think? Would you rather have a long weekend to celebrate the holiday or do you also like the idea of a mid-week break?
4th of July Activities
Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays…mainly because it’s in the Summer – my favorite season. I think you all know by now that I’m a big beach and pool person. If I could go everyday, all day I would! So you can bet that’s where I’ll be on Wednesday!
I like to do a lot on Independence Day to really celebrate being independent. Some of the additional activities I like to include:
- kayaking/paddle boarding
- grilling out with neighbors and friends
- dressing up in my favorite red, white and blue clothes/bathing suits
- watching fireworks from the roof
What do you have planned to celebrate Independence Day?
My favorite season is DEFINITELY summer! That’s right…I love summer in Florida. For me, every weekend is about hitting the pool or beach, riding with the top down and sipping on summer-inspired cocktails at restaurants along the beach and intracoastal.
This summer, I’ve vowed to do more than my usual routine (even though it doesn’t get old for me). I want to take more advantage of Florida in the Summer. In case you need a little inspiration for your summer (at least when it’s not pouring outside), take a look at my summer bucket list below.
- Visit a natural spring in Florida
- Pedal power my Summer by booking a Cycle Party tour with friends and family
- Ride my bicycle more around town
- Make my way to Miami more and visit unique locations like Concrete Beach Brewery
- Write more (see…I started already!)
- Go hair-free with Body Details to make Summer fun even easier
What do you want to accomplish this summer?
I’ve gotta be honest…I’m not much for resolutions. I am big on goals though. But what’s the difference? To me, resolutions never stick. When it comes to a new year, everyone starts talking about resolutions, fresh starts and drastic changes to their lives. While I believe this is a great way to think for a new year (especially when it comes to bettering your health, finances, life, etc.), the word “resolution” still has such a negative connotation for me.
Since “resolution” is most notably linked to the term “New Year’s Resolution” I automatically think that it’s something that will never be completed – since almost all of mine go unfinished. It may be just semantics, but I’m a much bigger fan of the word “goal”. I can set my own goals at any time of the year without the pressure of all that New Year excitement. I can amend my goals as I go to further the success already obtained from the original goal!
Here’s the bottom line. A resolution is what you set to “fix” something. A goal is what you set to fulfill your dreams and ambitions. So this year, I will be setting no resolutions…only goals.
Wishing you all a wonderful and safe New Year!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well…it is for most. For others, it’s a busy time of holiday shopping and list making to ensure no one gets left behind when it comes to receiving presents.
I myself start my list-making well before Thanksgiving and get a rush every time I check something off of my shopping list. Every year it’s different….and different for everyone. My list includes parents, nephews and a niece, friends, my awesome service peeps (nails, lashes, etc.) and the list goes on. For others, their lists are even longer.
Hopefully you’ve already made your list of holiday gift recipients, but just in case you haven’t take a look at the list below to get to “making a list and checking it twice!”
- Service people
Enjoy your holiday shopping and wrapping! And definitely try not to let it get too overwhelming for you.
Since when did October get to be such a busy month? December is one thing…the squeezed-in meetings before the holiday coupled with the multitude of holiday parties and extra volunteering during the giving season. But October? When did this happen?
I guess between Halloween fun and the start of “season” in South Florida, it was inevitable. Work events are plentiful, which means the PR and social media marketing for clients is in full force! There’s nothing quite as satisfying as being busy with client work and seeing those press inquiries coming in one-after-one.
I don’t know about you, but it feels like the busy season has begun earlier than in years past, which means keeping a meticulously organized calendar!
Have you been busier this month than in years past?
Why should other occupations get all the love? If you work in PR and Social Media you’re already a brilliant and creative soul. Show off your skills this Halloween with some office appropriate fun PR and social media themed costumes for 2017.
