Summer is HERE and we couldn't be more excited ☀️ After two years of restrictions and lockdowns, it's time to release all your stresses and live your best life. At Twentyseven, we're all about taking care of yourself from the inside out, starting with the inner work to practicing self care in every shape and form. So we've created the ULTIMATE hot girl summer guide for your glow up - mentally and physically.
Re-Connect With Nature
Whether it's hitting the beach, going for a hike, or going out for a walk it's time to end the cycle of being cooped up in your home (unless you like staying at home!) and reconnect with the outside world. Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers, turn off your tech and breathe in all that fresh summer air.
Twentyseven Tip: Learn about forest bathing! It's been found to lower blood pressure, heart rate, and levels of harmful hormones — like cortisol, which your body produces when it's stressed. This can help put you in a more calm and relaxed state. Read all about it and its benefits in the book "The Healing Magic of Forest Bathing".
We'll say it time n' time again but it bears repeating: stay 👏 hydrated👏
It's the first step to glowing skin, the key to staying healthy, and not passing out from the summer heat. Make sure you're drinking enough water throughout the day. Bring your fave water bottle with you or keep one in your car for your adventures.
Twentyseven Tip: It's important to drink at least 2L of water every day by taking small sips every couple hours.
Try Something New
Want to get out of your comfort zone this summer? If you've been stuck in a rut, try something new. Whether it's a new workout, a new yoga practice, a new book, a new dish or that new hobby you've been dying to get into. The summertime offers an abundance of new experiences plus the longer sunny days give you more energy, so do everything you want to do before the days get shorter.
Twentyseven Tip: Keep track of your accomplishments by taking pictures or writing them down in a journal! This way you can look back on all the memories you've made during the summer.
Plan a Vacay
Let's be real. We all need one! Plan a road trip, book a plane ticket to a tropical island, and visit a place you've never been to before. It's good to have a couple days or weeks dedicated to living in the moment with friends and loved ones.
Twentyseven Tip: Want to escape the city? Book a stay at our Airbnb The Hunt House and explore the beauty of Prince Edward County. Perfect for wine lovers, foodies, and nature enthusiasts!
Grow Your Own Plants
We love our plants here at Twentyseven and plants love sunshine! If you want to save money on produce or simply want to take care of something: try growing your own plants. Not only are they super rewarding when you witness new growth but they add a touch of beauty to your space.
Twentyseven Tip: Use your grocery scraps like potatoes, herbs, greens, etc and propagate them in water for a couple weeks, then transplant them into soil. Ta daa! A fresh garden and free food all summer long.
Invest In Your Summer Glow Up
Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday and give your hair a chop (or a little trim!), update your wardrobe and try new makeup looks if you want to experiment with your aesthetic. We all know that feeling when you get that new hairdo or when you put on makeup after a hot minute, you will automatically feel a difference in your energy - that hot girl energy!
