"Daaaaaad, make her stop!" NEVER.
Today we found ourselves a new friend. Welcome to the LA, Alfred! I love you already little two-color-eyed-pup!
The rain is finally here! Well, actually, it doesn’t seem like it stayed very long, but for the time being I loved hearing the bus tires drive over the wet asphalt. We were able to catch the farmers market before it started raining so we grabbed fresh strawberries. We paired it up with 85 degrees pastries, yes that black bread is indeed a pastry, and yes, it is phenomenal. Filled our new cups from Michaels with our usual! Who knew mason jars can have handles?! Uh, genius! No, our initials aren’t really pressed on there, that would be post-editing-make-my-own-brushes-in-illustrator-in-5-seconds-work. Kinda works though…right? Mine has a straw because…sigh…braces. Ha! Exciting things are happening! Can’t wait to share with you all. Chat soon!
I’m an early bird. I think it has a lot to do with my college years back in FIDM when I would have to wake up at 4:30am to make sure that I made it on time for my 8:30am class. Yes, I woke up that early because I used to live in Ontario (not Canada, but with the traffic I sat in? It might as well have been.) 1 hour on good days, 3 hours if the traffic Gods really hated me…oh, and that is just ONE way. How did I do it? I do not know, it might have been the power and spirit of an 18 year old.
Nowadays, I find myself moaning and groaning having to get up at 8am. I used to give myself plenty of time to get ready, but now? Ha! I wake up at 8am and out the door by 8:30! Truly a 22 year old can do much better…
I’m training myself to be an early bird once again and the only way I truly find myself doing that is rewarding myself with coffee, fresh fruit & a good book. If any of these aren’t within reach, well then, I’m going to make it an adventure to do so.
Todays morning essentials were (pseudo-fresh) coffee from a K-Cup machine. I suppose I shouldn’t bash too much on the machine, I have to admit that the Donut Shop Coffee Cups are pretty on par. Paired with my coffee is fresh fruit from our local market, Two Bits. And of course, Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto, one of the many books that I juggle through.
I enjoy mornings like these because it’s important to have “me” time. And whether that means an hour or just 15 minutes, it’s good to have that time to yourself before venturing onto your daily adventures. It keeps motivated and inspired.
This is my “me” time.
And yes, my grown up spork is incredibly essential. Thank you, World Market.

It’s really busy at work. To the point where I’m losing track of time, but that’s good. I’ve been kicking ass with my projects :)
Doing a few side projects here and there to keep my already busy self even more busy.
Prepping my portfolio/resume both digital and hard copy - this is probably the one task that I should be focusing on but currently lagging in. I’m taking this weekend in to work! It’s going to be freaking awesome.
Moving out. The idea is just scary. My rents are overlapping. Deposits will need to be furnished. Blah.
That’s really it, just super tired. Been working a lot.
Oh and I haven’t gone to the gym at all in the last two weeks and I’ve been eating like a fatty. Way to go Krislam, way to waste 2.5 months of work. Just kidding, I’ll be back on it shortly :) Just need to settle in to my new home!
Okay, that is all. Bye.
I am all about this song.
If you got beauty beauty, just raise ‘em up. Cause every inch of you is perfect. From the bottom to the top.
So bad. So, freaking, bad.
Hello Wednesday! I’m sleepy! I overslept today, kinda.
Inspire Me 02 | This past weekend my family and I visited a family friend and had dinner at their place. Their cute home housed a beautiful small garden filled with fruits and vegetables. It was definitely feeding my inner-green-thumb-enthusiast. Being around these beauts made me feel at home even though I was so far away. I love the organic shapes that fruits & veggies have to offer and their endless array of green shades! I hope one day to start a garden of my own. My first attempt will be mint! Wish me luck!
Sleepy braceface smile :)
Hashtag, Mondays. Got lots to do this week!
THE day! Moving day!
Actually, it’s more like, we’re moving the huge heavy narnia closet to Ontario! And by we, I mean, Cody & John… LOL.
August 4 most my stuff will already be moved into Jay’s place, so I guess it’s THE CLOSET day. LOL.
How incredibly scary.
Sunday spent well with @xayejayjay. It’s been so long since we’ve had a shopping day together. And for once, we didn’t go to iHop. #coffee #mocha #crepedeparis #QT #bestfriend #loveyoujaybird #treatyoself
From our impromptu adventure to Snow Monster last night! Shared a S’more Macaroon Horchata Ice Cream Sandwich along with a giant mason jar of Thai Tea Boba! Yum! Played Jenga & Speed where I kicked the boyfriends butt, repeatedly.
