summer reading list: blog post edition.

currently, i’m stuck in bed & very ill. booooo. i mean, it’s summer! nothing is worse than spending a sunny day indoors, sniffling your brains out. alas, i knew it would happen sooner or later, so i’m maximizing my time in bed by collecting an inspiring list of blog posts to read. i truly want to read & absorb as much as i can during my summer break, & i hope you don’t mind me sharing a few of the articles i have been enjoying today::

#3: 10 powerful mantras to stop the drama in your life. (marc & angel, hack life)

unfortunately, i do have a life that is riddled in drama & dramatic individuals. the important thing to note about drama is that it is unnecessary & avoidable. in some instances, i allow myself to become upset when i am mistreated over & again, when i could be more mindful & avoid such pain. in other instances, people mislabel valid distressing situations as drama. my point? drama is hard to navigate. however, i think these tips & 10 mantras in this article are very helpful. we cannot control how others treat us or how others act, but we can control our response. if everyone would take these mantras into account, the world would be a much better place.

#4: fragrance free + a perfume DIY. (free people blog)

now, i love perfume. but this is an interesting read. i’m hoping my parents never get a hold of this article, because they’ll go cold turkey crazy… but i think i can trust you guys with it. this article talks about the chemicals that exist in our fragrances today. of course, some perfumes are worse than others, & i’m not suggesting you to throw away all of your expensive perfumes. however, they do provide a quaint little DIY on how to create your own chemical free fragrance. it’s something to think about, especially if you are trying to detoxify your life. as she mentioned, taking away fragranced cleaning products is another way to minimize the toxins in your home. perhaps some day i will make my own scent!

#5: how to get out of a creative rut. (a pair & a spare)

this post, written especially for bloggers & creatives, spells out some helpful hints on how to get out of that frustrating creative rut we all face now & again. as much as i can be a messy person, cleansing my creative space is always my way of pushing through a creative stand still. she also talks about creating something for yourself, seeking out new venues of inspiration, disconnecting from all the hullabaloo, & getting some beauty sleep. a great read if you can’t seem to push through your own creative rut!
