As the summer has begun to wind down over the past two weeks, I’m trying (and failing) to make more of an effort to get to the pool and beach which I’m going to try again this weekend. I think there’s just not a lot of pressure to do so mentally because it’s going to stay hot here well into autumn, so there isn’t any real rush. Honestly, I prefer the pool/beach in spring and autumn to the summer because the summer months can get so hot that even the pool/beach are too warm. But I do hope to go swimming at some point this weekend!
Last weekend, I spent some with a cup of tea and the September issue of British Vogue, edited by Meghan Markle/the Duchess of Sussex, which was incredibly impressive. I had such high hopes going into it and my expectations were completely exceeded. There were so many interesting interviews and creatively done fashion pieces! I must admit that it’s been a very long time since I actually read every single section in a magazine, but that was the case here. I’m still managing to find a physical copy online, but you can get the digital version on British Vogue’s app and looks beautiful on the screen.
Something else I’ve been doing lately is beginning preparations for my next big trip! The plan is to go to Paris next autumn for a really cozy, relaxed visit to the city. I’m having so much fun in the planning process already, picking out a hotel and making a list of all the food I want to eat. This time around, I’m promising myself that I’ll actually make it out to Versailles for a day while I’m there.
This weekend, I’m working on some GRE prep, taking practice tests and studying to brush up on my math skills. Tonight, I’m eating ice cream and watching both Kill Bill movies with my dad and then, tomorrow having a fun day with my best friendand waiting patiently for the second episode of season two of Succession, which is very hard to do because I can never stop thinking about that show when it’s in season. What are your weekend plans? Let me know here or on Instagram :)
