First thing you did this morning? I woke up, drank a glass of water with lemon, and went to my favorite running class at my gym.

Currently browsing (.com)? metmuseum.org/art/collectionsimpleecology.org, countless open tabs of things I want to buy

Favourite form of movement/exercise? Running. It has made me feel quite strong. 

One thing you'd like to incorporate into your day/week that you're currently yet to? Yoga and more baths. Consciously implemented relaxation.

Nighttime rituals? Spending time with my partner after our separate days. We eat dinner together and I do my best to relax although I have a tendency to want to work through the evening. Before bed, I rinse my face with warm water and Earth Tu Face, use the occasional face mask, and put on Noto Moisture Riser Cream (!)

I feel most creatively fulfilled when... Creating imagery without intention or direction.

I'm currently working on... Positivity, pride, redecorating, and quite a few collaboratively expressive projects for Forme & Sens.

This time last year, I wish I knew... What it felt like to be strong

I'm grateful for... Self-awareness and learning, my partner and our home
