Updating

rose nails brightlights bestsandwicheverIt’s been a wonderful few days. Gentle rain drops landing on my very much alive rose plant, freshly manicured nails from a rare spa day, glowing skin from a photo that was far too kind due to the sunlight, and an amazing sandwich from Panera. I am now hungry from thinking about the tomato basil bread the veggies rest inside of!

I’m horrible with plants. They tend to die on me quite suddenly. I’ll water them carefully when they first arrive onto my porch, but if I have a couple of busy days I neglect to water them and they sadly fade away. I am determined to keep these beauties alive for springtime is nearly here! I want to cover my porch in plants. I feel they truly help keep positive vibes strong.

Am I the only one who becomes extremely happy when snap chat photos turn amazing because the sunlight erases all of your pores? I love when this happens! Yet I rarely post it because it’s really very deceiving, but still good for your confidence?

Oh, and the sandwich. If you ever find yourself inside a Panera, please indulge in their Mediterranean veggie sandwich. Pure deliciousness.

Today I am off to meet with my college roommate and BFF for lunch and shopping. I am going to try very hard not to spend any money on unnecessary items (thin, see through blouses that I can never find the correct undergarments to pair them with).

Brunch, brunch, brunch

I love brunch! This Sunday my boyfriend and I traveled into the depths of downtown in search of the perfect brunch meal and found an overly crowded restaurant with hardly any seating. Typically, we leave these types of situations before one of us decides we can no longer take the large amount of people surrounding us, but today we didn’t and had a joyful meal which ended with me attempting to photograph the city and spilled coffee all over the concrete. What a wonderful Sunday it was.

Gluten free, Aussie brunch

This morning, James and I ventured to an Aussie bakery and had probably the best brunch we’ve had this year. Their unique french toast slaughtered all other conventional french toasts I’ve ever had, besides homemade french toast of course. I typically loathe egg sandwiches and the mere thought causes me to gag without control, but I tore this one apart once the bacon was removed. The sauces that accompanied the sandwich were roasted bell pepper chutney and cilantro pesto. Ahhh it was so good I wish I could have some right now! *glances at Chinese food sitting nearby and shrugs* Maybe next Sunday.

Calla lilies

Wednesdays, probably my most favorite day of the week because my mom comes over to visit Kidder and I. We spend the morning drinking coffee and eating toast while we watch Kidder in all of his adorable acts. Today we went to Trader Joe’s and I purchased beautiful calla lilies and a personal sized goat cheese pizza, which sadly was not as amazing as it looked. I put all the calla lilies in vases and then googled whether they were poisonous to cats or not, well, turns out they are. So now they all rest beautifully in my bathroom. After my mom leaves I tend to become a bit restless and look for activities to keep me entertained, all while ignoring the fact that I have many tasks, work and school related, that I must complete. So instead of rushing off to join a friend at a restaurant, I shall attempt to get my work.

I don’t know why it’s so difficult for me to enjoy my day off, I believe it’s because I miss James so, and I find myself counting the hours until he returns. Counting hours takes up one’s time enormously.

Food, fitness and health

 


With all my stress piling up, on this day specifically, I began thinking of what I was going to treat myself to for lunch and, of course, decided on sushi. Once I began thinking of eating well and working out for my health and overall well-being, I instantly became calmed. Focusing on making healthy choices, working out and improving my mental being is far more important than any test or homework assignment I come across and thus puts everything into focus.

In a small town outside of my city, my best friend and I came across the most beautiful restaurant inspired by Alice in Wonderland. The coffee there was the best I have ever had in my entire life. Typically, I drown my coffee in creamer, leaving no room for the actual taste of coffee to come in contact with my taste buds, but this coffee merely needed a pinch of sugar and, ah I should’ve asked if I could’ve purchased some for home. The amazing coffee came from Hawaii, making the state even more desirable.
