If you’re reading this then you’ve been blessed with another Monday morning, and while you may be slowly getting into your groove for the day, I’m back to give you a few things to add to your week to kick it up a notch. As the summer winds down we have even less time to fit in all of the good times, so let’s just get right down to it.

Here are five things to try this week to make it just a little bit more fun.

Affirm yourself: Have you been in a funk lately? A change of attitude is probably in order. Instead of breaking yourself down and nit picking every single fault, consider filling those negative spaces with positive affirmations. They may seem silly at first, but soon you’ll notice that you’ll spend less time picking yourself apart and more time amazed at just what you can do.

Be a foodie: Whether you hit up that hot new restaurant in your neighborhood or experiment with a new recipe, this week have fun with your food. Try new things and sample foods you’ve never eaten before.

Shake it up: Don’t spend $4 a pop at Jamba Juice or Starbucks! Get creative and make your own smoothies, shakes, and ice coffee. Hit the ‘net for some tasty recipes that will help you beat the heat and save a little money, too.

Be romantic: Add a touch of romance to your week. Read some love poems, indulge in a great box of Swiss chocolate, or do something special for your boo. If your relationship has fallen a little flat lately, spice it up with some out-of-the-box romantic tricks. And if you’re single, treat yourself to something special—a piece of lingerie, a massage, or a hot bubble bath.

Go dancing: The summer is almost done, so hook up with your girls and shake what your mama gave you!

That’s it for now, Clutchettes. What’s on your to-do list for the week?

    I need to do the first thing on the list because I have been doubting myself in a few areas in my life. I know it is related to my period. For some reason, I suffer from temporary low-self esteem every month during my period.

    I think I might try a new recipe for myself. Maybe a healthy, natural dish. It might make me feel better.

    I never buy smoothies. I make my own smoothies–in fact I made one this morning and yesterday–and I also have a juicer (that I barely use). A small handful of ice (like 2-3 small cubes), 1 banana, 1 cup almond milk, 1-2 tbsp honey, and a tablespoon of peanut butter is a nice treat.

    I am married, but I feel like being romantic with myself. I feel like treating my own self to a warm bath, glass of wine, and some chocolate. I’m sure that attitude is also due to my period. I tend to want to indulge my own desires around that time.

    I’m not into dancing around other people, though. Even when I go to parties, I have to have 3-4 drinks before I can dance comfortably. If I was less shy about it, then I would feel differently.
