Hello to the last couple weeks of summer! Though summer was great, I am pretty excited for fall to come. I love the breezy weather it brings and all the fall/winter clothes I finally get to bring out to wear. Over the summer, I relocated to sunny California and the new area I am currently living in is more on the dry side. I’ve definitely felt my skin change quite a bit, so I’ve had to change up some of my skincare routine to better hydrate it. I’ve also challenged myself to drink more water which has helped make a huge difference. I especially love making my own spa water by adding some limes and cucumbers to it. It tastes so much better! Another thing I love is making my own plant-based smoothies to stay hydrated, nourished and energized.
