Welcome to The Weekly Digest, week one. This idea to begin a weekly digest came as I began the journey into my latest read: The Artist’s Way. This is more of a selfish act than anything else, as I’d like to use this weekly digest to hold myself accountable to following the course within the book.

However, I have long wanted to share a weekly snapshot of the books I’m reading, things I’m pursuing, and lessons learned. This feels like “the good ol’ days” of blogging.

To be quite honest, publishing this type of post actually hurts our SEO…but that’s a story for another time. If you’re interested in learning about blogging and business, please feel free to reach out or join us on an upcoming Boxwood Abroad retreat.

Now to the heart of the matter: This series may simply last the twelve weeks outlined in the Artist’s Way, or it may continue into a beloved weekly entry full of inspiration, helpful links, and a curtain-pulled-back look into my thoughts.

Regardless, I hope you enjoy and please leave a comment or email me with your thoughts, I’d love to connect further and keep the conversation going.

Let’s dive in: this week’s readings, links, thoughts, and inspiration. Bon appétit!

Currently Reading

*One thing you should know about me – I read 5-6 books at a single time. I love reading a chapter, journaling about it, then moving onto the next book or podcast. It’s like a revolving door of authors in my brain at any given time.

As mentioned above, I’ve just began the Artist’s Way a spiritual course for reaching deeper creativity. I highly recommend it – I will share a week by week update as I work through the 12 week course.

Week One: Focuses on committing to writing three pages each morning, scheduling time to play, and pushing through the beginner’s phase.

Of course, I’m on the hunt for a fabulous journal to translate my three pages onto, and I am much looking forward to “play” something I do NOT struggle with ;).

Purchase the book here!

I am also reading the following:

The Pivot Year: By Brianna Wiest, a favorite of mine. This book is a series of daily affirmation type readings which encourage me to think outside of my usual thoughts. I find myself reading a passage, then writing my thoughts down. I think of each day as more of a prompt. I love her work so much – if you’re just learning about her, start with one of her other books.

Mindful Self-Compassion: This is a book recommended to me by friends at Hoffman. I am interested in self-compassion after learning about the many studies done showing its effectiveness in helping people succeed and reach a higher level of effectiveness.

Among others…but I’ll save some for next week.

Beauty Regimen

Nadia, our creative director extraordinaire, is my go-to for all things beauty. She recently shared rosemary oil as her go-to for hair growth, I am sold!

I’m also quite late to the game, but recently discovered Lineige lip mask. I don’t use it just at night, instead – as often as I can.

Currently Listening To

I have been enjoying the audio book “Wish You Were Here” a fiction beach-read that a friend recommended.

Also loving our new playlist from the August Edit, “The In-Between“. A mix of oldie and newbies perfect for playing in the background on a warm late-summer afternoon.

Routine Updates

Over the past few years I have been updating my lazy-girl routine. I am generally a wake up around nine, and we’ll see how the day goes type of girl.

As I’ve become more aware of *time*, I’ve attempted to be more intentional. Don’t let me fool you – I still find myself scrolling aimlessly and wasting way too much time.

However, I have also put into motion a lot of routine updates that I now live by. Sharing to hold myself accountable, and maybe inspire you a little bit.

Currently exercising with Morgan, my wonderful trainer introduced to me by a friend, T/W/Th/F. Afterwards I sip coffee, read, journal, and complete my Hoffman process quad check. I attempt to journal and set my intention for the day.

Inspired By

Above all else, I am an interiors girlie through and through. As I study more and more of design for our clients at Boxwood Avenue Interiors – I am grateful to have found a profession I will never tire of. As you may have seen I am currently smitten with sink skirts, below are some further inspiring images from the week, enjoy!
