Not going to lie, it’s felt pretty good being back in action after taking a full week off. The vacation was totally necessary {stress free for the first time} but it’s left me feeling more refreshed than ever with things – especially essellesse.

I’ve implemented some new habits but really focusing on looking from the outside in vs the inside out and doing things with clarity & intention. To keep the clarity going, we cleaned the house today.

The weather in San Francisco is beautiful today {no June gloom… yet} so we opened the windows, blinds, & let the air in and got down to business while sipping mint watermelon tea and in the reflexology sandals #casual

I made Erik stop halfway to take a picture of my outfit above – I got a little dressed up to be extra productive today {I swear it helps}.

ALSO I need to talk about this tea from Trader Joe’s: mint watermelon black tea

It was on my May TJ’s shopping list & had to get it ASAP. True story but watermelon + mint is one of my fav combos of all time {real good with gin too} and just heavenly in tea.

Trader Joe’s mint watermelon black tea is: black tea, peppermint, spearmint, orange peels, licorice, dried watermelon {also if you like watermelon, you’ll love this beer}

& it tastes like summer!! it’s so good hot and I think will be even better iced.

In fact, we are currently “sun brewing” a pitcher right now: basically this pitcher filled with water with tea bags in the sun right now until sunset.

Something about sun brewing feels like a lazy luxury summer, right? Not to mention, it’s so hands off.

PS – I’ve had this playlist on all day and it’s one of my favs. Perfect for summer and I love to work to it since it’s so undistracting
