Another month has gone, so fast. The more I do, the more it seems I have to do and the quicker the time goes by. But that didn’t take any fun of living the start of the summer, with some beach days, river days, climbing days and many movies. I can’t even remember all of the good stuff.
Though, I’ll make you a quick list of links to check. (psst, don’t worry, you don’t have to check all of them now, we’ll be waiting for you).
1. A newsletter : Lecture in progress
I have subscribed to many newsletter this month. And they look quite promising. Lecture in progress surprised with their emails, so I want to recommend it to you. If you’re after some good advice from creatives, interviews and have interest in the creative industry you’ve found an ally in them.
2. A song :
I love every single song by Lana del Rey. Just recently listened to it.
3. Additions to my following list on instagram
Loving is sharing! And today I want to share a few inspiring designers! Their images are so wonderful, modern and striking! They just make me want to design more.
A color palette I couldn’t love more. Check her incredible patterns.
This one will take you into rainbow daydreaming.
Don’t ignore the signs. This is one to follow.
There’s something about her patterns that calls me.
4. A book :
She means business. You know I’ve read quite a few books about the creative life, entrepreneurship and success. I’m still doing. Maybe a new post of Books for Girlbosses will come soon. Anyway, my point is, this is a good book on the topic. At least, one that resonated a lot with me. It packs practical tips and strategies with felt advice alongside visualization talk and the like. And her personal journey and those of her closest ones. But not only that, she also has a lot of resources for you to build your success journey. I’m totally diving into those, so be sure I’ll be shining in no time 😉
BTW, I got myself the audiobook, so it’s Carrie Green herself talking, so cool and nice to listen to while painting.
5. A place :
Siurana. We started June at full power. We got on the car for two days and didn’t stop for a minute (okay, maybe some, I just like to make things big!). We went for lots of exploring and climbing. Here some shots. Get inspired and go find your next adventure!
6. Do your to-do stuff while playing
Have you ever heard of gamification? In few words, it’s transforming some activities into a game. The example I want to share with you today is Habitica. It’s a game developed to help you get better habits and do your to-do list with a more engaging twist. My sister (Mariposas de papel) introduced me to this, and even I’m so behind her in the game, I’m still going there day after day.
What’s in it for you? If you ever played online games like Gaia online, wanted to have the nicest avatar or just liked pixel art you can be sure you’ll like it. Though, the funniest part is doing it with friends. You can even get into battles that you’ll only able to win doing a hell out of things from you list.
(Need a tip? Have lots of dailies and do as many as you can to keep healthy).
7. Surfing freely (online) : a safer anonymous Browser, Tor
Do you ever feel that google, or the internet knows you too well? Would you like to be able to browse the internet without it knowing all about you? Maybe just because you should be able to. Because you don’t have to be giving your info all the time.
I’ve started using it. No regrets. More freedom. Always strive for freedom.
