Summer is right around the corner and I could not be more excited about it! I am so ready for the warm bright days ahead and to celebrate I want to share a few of the things I am looking forward to this new season. Hope you enjoy and I’d love to hear what you’re looking forward to this summer!
1. WEARING DRESSES AGAIN
Warm weather and me go very much hand in hand 🙂 I love wearing lightweight summer dresses and sandals pretty much all season! So comfy, easy and CUTE. I will share some fashion videos and hauls with you soon featuring some really pretty pieces.
2. I AM TURNING 30!
Can you believe it? So surreal to think I’ll be 30 years old next month! I’m so grateful for everything life has blessed me with till this point and I am SO looking forward to this next chapter of my life. I honestly feel the BEST I have ever felt and I truly believe our body, life, career and everything in between is what WE MAKE it. So cool to think I spent almost all of my 20’s sharing my life with you guys and having you be part of it means so much to me.
3. SUMMER TRIPS
Something I love about living in Europe is how easy and convenient it is to travel to different countries in the summer. Summer in pretty much all of Europe is so beautiful! We have a couple of trips planned, one however will actually be to New York. I always love going back to the city I spent most of my early 20’s in. It gives me all the feels, remembering all the experiences I had there and how much I grew as a person. Will always be so grateful for that time in my life! (p.s. It’s also where I started my YouTube channel, back in 2011, so it has an extra special place in my heart for that as well.)
6. FRESH JUICY SWEET FRUIT
This is honestly one of the best things about summer! Gimme all the fruit please 🙂 I love fresh local berries, peaches, watermelon and oddly I’ve been so into pears lately too. They’re just so juicy and sweet now (and actually quite low in the GI scale). My favorite time to eat fruit is for my first meal of the day (on an empty stomach) and as a snack between meals if I’m feeling peckish. I also love some fruit after dinner if I’m in the mood for something sweet. What’s your favorite fruit at the moment? Let me know below.
7. BRIGHT EARLY MORNINGS
Ok I might be torn with the fruit here, I think this is actually my favorite part about summer hehe 🙂 Waking up early has changed my life in so many ways and it’s so much easier (and fun) to do it when there’s actually light outside already. I just love having that time for myself, having my water, prioritizing what I need to do for the day, getting in a great workout and setting good intentions for the day. It makes the world of difference and I would highly recommend setting a morning practice or ritual if you haven’t already.
As some of you may know, I do not live in the same country as my family. Although I do see them throughout the year, summer is a time we always plan something fun and get together either for a little family trip somewhere or I go home to see them. I love my family so much and they’ve been the biggest support system for me, forever grateful for the close relationship we have. I recently went home for my moms birthday and this weekend we are flying to Barcelona to visit my dad for the weekend – cannot wait! 🙂
What are you looking forward to this summer? Let me know below! ♥
Thanks for this beautiful article Annie, and I can't wait for your new website ! 🙂 For the moment, my favorite fruits are strawberries ! I just love to add them in my morning oat meal with a frozen banana, this is so so delicious ! I am so excited for summer too, even if the weather is very cloudy and rainy in France today…;) Have a nice day, and continue to do everything you do, this is so inspiring 🙂
