Before we get too far into June, I thought I would try to plan out the month a little better than I normally do. If only the weather would cooperate (it’s been in the 50’s and raining on Long Island for the last two days), I would be sharing with you some of my new outfits that will be on repeat this summer. But for now, I’ll have to let the suspense build and keep hoping that Mother Nature will remember that it is June and I shouldn’t have to put the heat on in the car on my way to work.
Try: Ever since I started taking kickboxing classes, I have been on the hunt for new activities. Lately I have been lax with my yoga practice, and after seeing the Long Island Pulse magazine highlight a few studios in the area, I thought I would give anti-gravity (or aeriel) yoga a try. It looks like it will be a fun workout that doesn’t put a lot of stress on the joints and will allow me to try my favorite yoga poses suspended mid-air. Hey, you never know when Cirque du Soleil will be hiring!
Read: My reading time is limited to Twitter, the New York Times (online), and career-related sites like Career Contessa. But every year I look for that perfect beach book that will accompany me as I embrace my time in the sun. This year, I’ve been seeing one book make the rounds on Instagram and blogs; to say it’s left me intrigued is an understatement. I’m always looking to acquire more knowledge to build my brand and better manage my social media feed. Leave Your Mark, by Aliza Licht, is my ”must read” for this summer.
See: I’m not much of a movie-goer, but Spy starring Melissa McCarthy looks too good to miss in the theater (it opens this Friday!). I saw her last movie The Heat with a friend and we were laughing (along with the rest of the audience) the entire time. I’m sure the same will be said about this film, too!
Go: If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that I was an equestrian for most of my life. Just because I lack the time to ride regularly these days doesn’t mean I enjoy watching the sport any less. That also includes attending a polo match. Every Sunday beginning in June and ending in October grab your cocktail dress and fancy hat for Polo at the Park in Bethpage, New York. I haven’t made it to a game in this location yet, but I have watched a few polo matches in the past and always enjoyed the fast-paced nature of them.
Do: Should the weather decide to stop raining and warm up, you can be sure that I will be out stand-up paddle boarding this summer. This is something I tried last year and loved. I found it so relaxing to wake up early on a Saturday before it got too hot out and spend an hour paddling around a new waterway on Long Island. It’s also a great workout!
Keep up with me on Instagram and look for my reviews to hit the blog soon!
This is a great post, such a good idea too!

Thanks, Jenessa. I’m glad you liked the post. I’m thinking about making it a monthly series. What do you think?
