I know Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer, but is it really fall yet? I don’t think so. It’s still +90 degrees out here! That’s still summer in my book. Also, I refuse to let go. Summertime sadness anyone? While everyone else is pulling out their scarves and sipping on pumpkin spice lattes, I’m still chasing after that glorious sunshine.

I’ve been craving anything tropical lately – sunshine, greenery and coconuts (coconut Americanos are officially my new favorite thing)! I’m heading out to LA/Palm Springs this weekend and I’m so excited for some California sun. I’m ditching NYFW this year for some family time and I’m pretty happy with that decision.

Is it weird that I still get homesick?? It’s only been 2 years, but I still miss it every day. Palm trees, the mountains, my parents… not particularly in that order haha! I’ve been in a little bit of a funk lately so I’m hoping California will be just what the doctor ordered. I’ve been feeling unmotivated, lazy and just “blah”. It’s been a few months since I’ve flown back so I think I just miss my closest friends and family.

Beyoncé recently spoke on happiness: “[We] have to take the time to focus on our mental health – take time for self, for the spiritual, without feeling guilty or selfish”. So I’m doing what’s good for my soul and heading home.

Anyone else out there move far from home as an adult? How do you cope? Tell me your secrets haha!

Hope you all had an amazing Labor Day weekend!
