Perhaps you've noticed this, perhaps you haven't, but I haven't been posting too frequently this month. My hope was to maintain the level of activity of last month, but alas, October is coming to a close and I have fallen short.
This did not occur for laziness or procrastination (despite having implied that in this post). As we all know, the academic year rolled around not too long ago, which has affected many of us bloggers and our schedules. School can be a lot of work; especially if you're a) pursuing a career in the medical field, b) considering it, or c) just trying to do the absolute best you can in any field of study. It can be very time consuming... and stressful.
On top of my studies, I've been on a health kick/intense pre-ski season workout regime. (More posts about that to come!) Unfortunately because of primarily these two reasons, blogging has gotten the short end of the stick. Now I really have to treat it as a hobby, or a "when I can scrounge up time" type of thing. *boo :(*
For a while, blogging was my preferred way to de-stress, so I'd make time for it. However, now that I've been exercising more, which requires me to be outside a lot, I've been favoring that as my way to relax. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy every minute of blogging, but there's just something about nature and being disconnected from technology and social media that's sooo refreshing. Experiencing it first hand by spending free time outside, I can say that nature is honestly the best therapy.
"The mountains are calling and I must go."
My best friend has been feeling the same way as myself in the fact that we really needed a chance to take a step back from work and re-energize in order to keep moving forward. Spontaneously on a Friday afternoon, we decided that would be as good of time as any to pack up and go somewhat off the grid for the weekend. We went on a really long drive to get to her winter home and just chilled. We hiked, explored, unwound, and just enjoyed nature at its finest.
Typically my posts are fashion and beauty related; however, this one is completely lifestyle. No outfits. No makeup. Just pictures of Mother Nature. She's the focal point of this post. Plus, I only sported athletic gear and a bare face that weekend, so that's not necessarily a "must see" haha
Have a lovely day and relax!!
