5 Things I'm Loving Right Now ♥

Happy aloha Friday! I hope you had a productive & joyful week. What a remarkable day. From where I stand, the sky is a blanket of blue. There's not a cloud in sight, completely spotless. The palm fronds delicately sway back & forth with the moderate breeze. It's a harmonious balance of warm sunshine & refreshing air. Aside from this magnificent weather, here's what I'm loving right now.

morning hike

Morning Hikes 

I don't hike very often so it was a pleasant but exhausting experience when I did it earlier this week. I was out of breath, my heart was racing, & I was sweating profusely. It looked a mess, but the view was worth it!

double earrings

Double Earrings

Give your average earrings a bit of oomph by putting two earrings in the same piercing. It looks pretty cool. I saw my friend rocking the double earring & had to take a photo to share. I need to experiment with this.

banana egg pancakes

Banana Egg Pancakes 

I've been doing my best to eat mostly to eat more consciously & I was looking for a simple breakfast that wouldn't be too heavy. These banana egg pancakes only have two ingredients. They taste ridiculously good; they're almost like crêpes.

pokemon go

Pokémon Go 

I have no shame in admitting that I have absolutely succumbed to the Pokémon Go trend. Boyfriend & I downloaded it last weekend & have been playing it every day since. I used to watch Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Cardcaptor Sakura, & all those card collecting shows, so this games reminds me of my youth.

la croix

La Croix

Yes. I have officially fallen victim to this delightful carbonated water beverage. I stocked up on three different flavors (grapefruit, apricot, & mango) & love them. It feels like an indulgence even though it's not. Yum.

What are you loving right now? :]

  4. Banana egg pancakes sound interesting! I want to try them. Morning hikes sound lovely too. I live in Florida though and there's no where to hike so I usually stick to morning gym sessions!

  5. I tried these pancakes last week and I think mine were a bit too eggy, but I loved how simple they were to make and how much of a treat they felt like at the weekend!

  6. I was so excited for the fact that we have the same outfit in Pokémon Go, hahaha. I love it as well, I feel it's actually the best thing that has happened to the world in some time.

    That double earring look is interesting. I love banana egg pancakes. I discovered them a few years ago when we went to a Paleo diet. Hope you have a great week!

  28. I understand that. Maybe add more banana? The eggy-ness reminds me of a crepe, so I love it. :]

  29. Basically just three million Rattatas and Pidgeys. My mom didn't know any other pokémon than Pikachu, she downloaded just for the hype and she caught a Tentacool, a Horsea, a Bulbasaur, a Vulpix and a Jigglypuff on her way to work, I'm so jealous! Have you caught anything cool?
