15 Ways to Become Your Best Self

Happy Wellness Wednesday everyone!  It’s been a while since we’ve last chatted, I hope you’re life has been nothing but beautiful and inspirational!  

Sometimes taking a step back and focusing on the little things in life is one of the best steps we can take in order to better ourselves, and to refresh our mind, body, and soul!  We’ve all been there, where we feel a little off balance and like something isn’t quite right.  Taking a break in order to receive clarity can be one of the best things for you, especially when it comes to being your best self.  I wanted to share 15 ways to truly become your best self, and each of these are things that I aspire to do every single day!  Every day is a beautiful, fresh start, and the perfect time to make your life, and yourself, the best it can possibly be!

Hello everyone, happy Friday!  I hope you had an absolutely beautiful week, and are feeling inspired and excited for the weekend!

It’s not often that I write a recap post, but I wanted to chat with you all a little bit today and share what’s been going on!  I started a new job as well as a summer class, and I finally felt like I was getting back into a routine when it hit me… the dreaded creative slump that we all encounter every once in a while.  You know the feeling!  After some sweaty workout sessions, a meditative slow flow, and a much needed digital detox, I finally found my way out and decided to create a new little addition to Simply Tess!

So here it is… I created a YouTube channel!!

Find Your Perfect Planner 2017: Lilly Pulitzer Agenda

Happy Friday everyone!!  I am SO excited, because my Find Your Perfect Planner series is back for 2017!!  This was one of my favorite series that I started last year, so I am thrilled to be sharing my favorite planners with you once again!  

I didn’t think I could love the Lilly Pulitzer agendas more, but I am obsessed with the new version!  I chose the large agenda in the Indigo Gypsea print, and this agenda runs from August, 2017 to December, 2018!  They took out a lot of features from last year, and like the overall design much better!  Plus, it doesn’t help that the inside print happens to match my S’well bottle! 😉
