Last Recap Before My Big Trip!

“To travel is to take a journey into yourself.” ~ Danny Kaye

I thought I would do a quick update, before my wanderlusting begins!

Unfortunately I have still been recovering from the mother of all creeping crud stomach bugs. Nourishment has been minimal and while I am keeping a sense of humor about it (Great pre-Cali diet) it has been frustrating and stressing me out.

Sickness aside, there have been many bright sides, the biggest is the weather! It has been gorgeous! I am obsessed! While I might feel cruddy, this weather has been great for my mood. I just wish it would stay like this year round.


While food has been problematic, it didn’t stop me from enjoying the perk of being customer of the week at my local Starbucks. Seriously! They are the absolute sweetest there. They always make me laugh and are some of the cheeriest, happiest people I know. I love getting my lattes from them!


I have mentioned my love of snail mail here, well my bestie knows me so well and sent me a card she made herself. She also knows the way to my heart as only a bestie can and got me a Starbucks gift card (between free drinks, gift cards from my mom, my bestie and bae, I am set for life!) It seriously made my day amongst all the creeping crud.


I also have been in desperate need of sneakers and finally ordered myself some amazing Asics (couldn’t help myself with the alliteration) from…..drum roll please…… Amazon!



Yup you read that right! They were super cheap too. I couldn;t wait for San Fran to try these puppies on I had to test them out and man are they snazzy!


I also will be leaving a review BUT…I got my hair done at the Aveda Institute. Bloggers I am   blonde again! Seriously, my roots could be seen from outer space. I could not have that on vacay! Thus I got my butt down to SoHo (Soooo Carrie Bradshaw) and the stylists at the institute fixed me up, doing a spectacular job. Yay!


The last two days I was able to take some nourishment, which is a good thing since my friend and I stumbled on to a hidden gem that is right by my apartment! Called Bonjour Crepes and Wine (And definitely getting a review in the near future!) it is so yummy, but extremely dangerous! I wasn’t able to sample the wine (boo) but the crepes and coffee were ridiculously yummy. I am still dreaming about them. They are also about the only thing I can stomach, which isn’t a hardship.

Also a huge THANK YOU to Nida from Shopaholic Blogs for my second nomination of the Blogger Recognition Award. Since I was already nominated for this, I won’t bore you all again. I will link to it here if you have a desire to read about my writing/blogging journey.

It seems like just yesterday, I was booking my tickets to Cali and now here it is! I am beyond excited. I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

What are your plans this weekend?

  1. I also have a bestie that sends me handmade-handwritten snail mail, and sends me Starbucks gift cards! When we lived in the same town, we’d always meet at Starbucks for a chai latte. She moved away a couple years ago. When I received a gift card in the mail from her a few months ago, I thought it would be for about $5, you know, enough for a Grande Chai. Turned out is was for $40! I literally laughed out loud and did a happy dance in front of the barista when they read me the balance. And, I teared up a little, because my bestie loves me, and I miss her…anyway, just thought I’d share. Have a great day!

    1. I love it! Snail mail really is the best! I love that! It is funny because, I always joke about being a coffee junkie, but my two best friends LOVE chai 🙂
      I love that story! What a sweetheart your bestie is! It is so wonderful to have people like that in your life! I hope you guys are able to have a reunion soon! Have a great weekend sweets! <3

  2. Loving those sneakers, I’m obsessed with the aqua blue tone such a good choice! You are such a blonde bombshell, but I totally feel you nothing is better than a hair appointment!!! My roots are also getting kind of out of control, thank god I have an appointment tomorrow though!! I literally am so jelly that you’re heading to San Fran and cannot wait to watch all your insta stories and like all your insta posts!!! YAY have so much fun. Stay safe <3

    xo, JJ

My roots could be seen from outer space currently, but I also have an appt. next Tuesday at an Aveda salon- THANK GOODNESS! Lastly, that Crepes and Wine place looks like a dream come true!!!!!
