Hello! Happy Wednesday! I hope your day has been ~the cutest~.

School is wrapping up and summer is basically here, which means there’s about to be a huge influx of beach photos and fruity drink closeups and scenic views of Europe. Yay! I am always a fan of a shameless beach selfie. Work that swimsuit.

The gloomy, cooped-up vibe of winter is long gone, but sometimes this time of year can be the hardest in terms of FOMO.

If you’re in your apartment while everyone else is at the beach, that feels even lonelier!

Never feel like you have to play up your situation to keep up with what you’re seeing on Instagram! No matter what location is tagged, or how fire the photos are on your feed, they are always just a tiny piece of another normal, messy, totally human life.

Sometimes, the best beach is getting ice cream by yourself at the store around the corner! Also, you don’t have to deal with sand if you’re watching TV in bed with your cats, which is a huge plus.

Wherever you are this summer, have fun, apply sunscreen, and don’t sweat it too much 🙂
