5 Things I'm Loving Right Now ♥

What a week, you guys! I'm currently in Palm Springs enjoying the start of a fabulous weekend. We plan to indulge in some delicious food, test out unique drinks, relax in a mineral spa, & simply witness a new place. In other news, I was stung by a bee last weekend & I'm still healing. My arm has been slightly red & itchy the last couple days, but it's going away. Eeek. I hope you have a happy weekend. Here's what I'm loving right now! 


North Park

North Park is a trendy little neighborhood in San Diego. Seriously, there's something cool everywhere you turn. We tried vegan ceviche & gourmet donuts. We saw some neat shops with cool knick knacks. This was a funky corner inside of a brewery. Rad!


Peach Papaya Iced Tea

I'm normally a fan of hot tea (Earl Grey), but this refreshing papaya peach iced tea hit the spot on a sizzling summer day. Sometimes you need to cool off with a rejuvenating drink. It wasn't sweet so you could really taste the fruitiness.


San Diego Beer & Music Festival

Fred & I attended the San Diego Beer & Music Festival a couple of weekends ago. It was full of a variety of tasty beers from various breweries all over the U.S. Somewhere were new to me & some were tried & true classics.


Summer Layers

Breezy dresses are an absolute necessity during the summertime. See my last OOTD here.


Fancy Oatmeal

No need to make your oatmeal all plain Jane. Inspired by those super fancy smoothie bowls, I created my oatmeal version with blueberries, blackberries chia seeds, flaxseed, & a drizzle of maple syrup to add some sweetness.

How's your week? :]

  7. That oatmeal looks so yummy! And the peach papaya sounds incredible (and not just because I'm in love with peaches!). I need to find myself a nice, fresh iced tea before the summer is over :) This week I'm loving three fantastic days away from work, and fudgesicles ;)
