Month in Review: September 2013
September has always felt like a new beginning for me. I grew up with two teachers for parents and nothing has changed since I now am a teacher myself! Forget January; bring me bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils because September is really the start of the new year. True to that spirit, Never Fully Dressed has been brimming with ways to lead a full (and fulfilling) life.
Outfits for a Full Life
Movies for a Full Life
Getting people to watch classic films is not always easy, sadly. Here are three films your man will love though! Get adventure on the high seas with Mutiny on the Bounty (with a side of dashing Clark Gable!). Remind him that gritty Midnight Cowboy was released with an X-rating and enjoy the ultimate Sci-Fi flick with 2001: A Space Odyssey!
Mail for a Full Life
We looked at different Subscription Boxes for Men to try out, as well as an in-depth review of Popbasic's latest box! On a more serious note, we also looked at how to write Get Well cards and how to put those skills to use by writing Get Well Cards to seriously ill children.
Plans for a Full Life
This feeling of a New Start has definitely been reflected in some of the posts around here! I shared a list of things you could do in September, as well as a list of 101 goals to do in 1001 days. This month Q+A posts also shared ways to get a Full Life, answering the questions "What Five Books Should Every Woman Own?" and "What is Your Favorite Lifehack?" This past week, I've also gotten into the school spirit by attending Alt for Everyone. Can't wait to share more about it with you! I also got to share how to get some style inspiration from films when posting about Annie Hall on October Rebel's blog. Don't worry though, we did get some time to relax; our picnic in the mountains earlier this month s proof of that! Even better- from our dogs point of view anyway- has been more frequent trips to the dog park now that the weather has cooled off.
