This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and PEOPLE StyleWatch® and InStyle®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #Summer4Me http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
Do you ever take a little “me time?” Now that summer is here, all of our schedules are changing. Kids are not in school, work hours may be different, and summer vacations are on the agenda. Though, in between scheduling all those activities, it is nice to have a little escape. Whether it’s on the beach, by the pool, or even just to rest during an afternoon thunderstorm (Florida is notorious for those!), it is nice to relax with a magazine. Two of my favorites, PEOPLE StyleWatch® and InStyle®, inspire me to live a little more colorfully and to upgrade my wardrobe with fun summer essentials.
From sunglasses to smoothie recipes, I love relaxing outdoors with a new magazine. My favorite place to score reading material is Target. I picked up the latest issues of PEOPLE StyleWatch® and InStyle® and saved 20% off! Have you heard of the Target Cartwheel App? I use it at least once a week.
I have a few albums of magazine inspiration, and I love that these latest issues featured a ton of information for me to save. And, bonus, Mindy Kaling is kind of my favorite so I’m glad to see her on the cover of InStyle®! She is one woman who truly deserves it.
I also like to unwind when I take some “me time” with my planner and a good pen. I actually just scored a beautiful floral agenda for the new academic year.
It reminds me to be productive and to focus on my goals for my family and my business. I also love filling the pages with inspiration that I found in a magazine! I use planners as my daily journal in a way. I fill the pages with notes and ideas.
The best partner to a good magazine is a cold smoothie. You’re going to want to try this strawberry peach smoothie as soon as you can! It’s the perfect frozen concoction for summer. Pair it with a good read and some sunshine and enjoy!
- 1/2 cup of grapefruit juice
- peaches, strawberries, blueberries (look for a summer fruit blend in the freezer section to make this smoothie in a hurry)
- Blend all ingredients together. If you use frozen fruit, you don't need to add extra ice.
How do you take time for yourself?
