Hey there, you wonderful people!
It's + 30 degrees here in Rijeka and, if you're asking me, there's nothing romantic about Summer at the moment. It's too hot to think or work properly, taking pictures outdoors is a big ha-ha-ha and the only thing I'm wishing for is to be teleported to Hvar or Brač or Vis (aka the islands) so that I can spend the entire day on the beach, in deep shade. No matter how much love I have for Rijeka, summer in the city simply SUCKS - even if that city is located by the sea. Gimme island life, pleeeease!
So today we're keeping things light here on Smile, Snap, Sparkle which means - let's go through some of my favourite Instagram moments lately and discuss how Summer looks divine on pictures while in reality you're sweating like a pig, holding on to a bottle of water like it's a freaking Holy Grail and trying not to faint while waiting for an ice - cream. But we still love it, right? RIIIGHT?
Yesterday I wrote on Instagram how I've decided to make this week a lazy one because I need a teeny tiny break (not from blogging, but from everything else) after a crazy month or so. It feels kinda weird because my last couple of days have been so insanely unproductive which is something I'm not used to but at the same time I feel pretty great about it.
Sometimes you need to take a step back, hit the pause button and disconnect from everything in order to recharge your batteries and fully relax. My break ends of Sunday but until then the only things on my mind will be books, films, tv shows, cold drinks, pasta, ice-cream, long walks late at night and obviously the beach.
What's your relationship with Summer and heat-waves like? How are you handling it so far?
