Hello friends!
This week I came up with not one, not two, but ten awesome ideas to make your summer 2016 an amazing one!

So, whether you're bored stiff without a clue what to do, or you have some free time and want to do something fun and different, this list will have a bunch of fantastic things for you to do!

1   C R E A T E  A  M O O D B O A R D

Need some inspiration in your life? ...Yes! Then this project is for you!
I love creating moodboards/inspiration collages, They are so much fun and you can make them so many different ways!
Like, on an editing app using pinterest and photos you find online
by cutting out pages from magazines and arranging them on a board or wall
printing photographs you love and adding other things like stickers, glitter, and other cute things
or by simply making a pinterest board of photos that get you motivated!

Moodboards are also very versatile! You can make them huge and you can also make them tiny!
I stumbled upon this beautiful diy for this adorable inspiration collage/to do list

Lately I have been obsessed with the amazing Rosanna Pansino's baking channelher videos are so cute and the sweets she makes always look mouth watering!
This summer I thought it would be the coolest thing to find a recipe (online or in a cook book) and try to recreate it!
You have fun making it and plus you have a yummy treat to eat and share after words!

Invite some friends over...or invite your cat over if you are like me!
And establish the best, most artsiest party ever.
Find diys on yotube and make them, make some yummy treats, set up fun decorations, and plan awesome things to do!
Your party doesn't have to be huge with tons of people coming over, It can literally be just you in an awesome fort with fairy lights, a yummy snack, and a good book to read!

These past few days I have been loving to sit down with some art supplies, paper, music and paint!
It is super therapeutic and such a pleasant thing to do!
It is also super cool to see how your painting skills progress the more you paint!
Even if you think "oh, I am not good at painting!"
You'll be amazed at how your paintings and style grows through the doing!

5   S T A R T  A  Y O U T U B E  C H A N N E L

This summer start a YouTube channel or a blog! It is super fun to do and has endless things to do with it, so you will never be bored!
grab a camera be it a fancy camera or simply your phone, film/photograph yourself doing something you love and share it with the world!
Maybe you love fashion and putting together beautiful outfits and lookbooks?
or you are passionate about spreading self love and motivating people!
you can share your art, photography, tips and tricks, wisdom, and pretty much anything else online!

Also! If you have a blog, YouTube channel, Instagram account or anything else that you would like to shoutout! Comment down below with a link! I would love to see all of your creative awesomeness!

This summer I have been focusing a lot on going through my things and simplifying everything!
Get rid of all the extra clutter and anything that does not bring you joy or you don't use.
When your space is clean and you don't have many extra things that distract you, you feel so much more focused and have a much clearer vision of what you need and what you have no use for!

7   M A K E  A  S U M M E R  P L A Y L I S T

Get some songs that you love and find new songs to obsess over and create a summer playlist!
I love making different playlists for different times like the morning, working out, and being productive!

8   D O  A N  A W E S O M E  W O R K O U T

Lately I have been doing the workout videos from the wonderful Cassey Ho's channel
She is so motivating and positive and her videos are such fun to do!
Working out is tons of fun to do, makes you feel awesome afterword, and gets you strong and healthy!
This summer, create a Pinterest board of workout photos like healthy foods and cute exercise clothes,  look at your board to get motivated and excited to workout!
Just remember, working out is simply for fun and something to do to get you stronger, Never feel pressured to do it, and never, ever workout just to look good.
Do it for yourself, because you love it, because YOU want to feel strong and healthy, because YOU deserve it!

This summer try at least one new thing that puts you out of your comfort zone
and even scares you a little bit!
dye or cut your hair differently, completely rearrange your room, try talking and being more social, start a youtube channel, wear something that is a little unusual that you love but never had the guts to actual go for, or go to some kind of social interaction like a camp!
This summer I went to an acting camp for the second time, For some reason I felt very nervous and less outgoing then usual, But by the end of it I was totally glad that I pushed through and did it, Because it turned out to be super fun and I really enjoyed it!
"feel the fear and do it anyway" is a quote that I love and goes with this subject!

And the last idea is to snuggle up inside and read a good book!
Books are pretty much perfection! They take you to a whole different world and you forget about everything else, It is almost like you are watching a movie but even better!
This summer I finished the Percy Jackson series, Of which I have been reading for...about two years.
Anyway, They were great books and I especially loved the characters Nico and Leo.
I also started The Hunger Games! I have already read the first book and "oh. my. goodness"
They are amazing books! The writing style is flawless and the characters are perfection!
Reading is such a fun pastime and the perfect thing to do when you are bored!
