July 2014 Natural Beauty and Lifestyle Favorites!

Yesss summer is passing! I’m very weird – I do not like July and August very much. My acupuncturist has told me she thinks this is because I have a very strong metal element in my constitution which aligns with the energy of fall/early winter, and that the energy is summer is very “adolescent,” much like our culture – hence the nearly unanimous celebration of the summer months. For me, it can’t go by fast enough! Get me to September. But, I’ll still try and enjoy every day, the little meditator I am 🙂
