take the time to relax


Sweater and shorts, H&M | Silk Blouse, Club Monaco
Boots, Aldo | Watch, Michael Kors | Socks, Unknown

I've realized recently that I don't relax enough. Anyone else have that problem? With school, work, interning, family, friends, my boyfriend, my blog... it's amazing that I have time to breathe! What I do love about my commute to work is that I get a whole hour to read the paper or a magazine on the skytrain. I think saying in touch with current events and what's happening in the world is really important - as is taking the time to just sit and not worry about anything for a little while. My patio is one of my favourite spaces in my parent's house to just sit and enjoy life - so take a little time for yourself today on this beautiful Tuesday in Vancouver!

  5. Definitely with how crazy busy our lives are, it's so so important to take the time to relax and de-stress. Your parent's patio looks like a lovely place to do that :)

  10. I was watching BT this morning and they were saying that Vancouver has the 6th longest commuting time in North America... longer than Seattle or LA. Gag.

    Just a little useless tidbit for you there.

    I love, love, love your sweater.

    The H&M party in your last post looks like it was fun! I'm stoked to start reading some of the other blogs of the girls that were there.

  12. So true, it's hard to remember to take some me time! I relish the time that I have to myself where I can just read a book, or cook, without having to be "doing something."

    That's right, sometimes we do lots of things and forget to relax for a while.
