5 Things I'm Loving Right Now ♥

Hi friends! I'm going to be real & tell it like it is: I am so freaking tired right now. I'm sipping on a hot cup of Earl Grey tea trying to keep my eyes open. I didn't sleep well last night, so I'm greatly looking forward to the weekend. Weekends have so much potential. Aside from the weekend, here's what I'm loving right now!

horchata coffee

Horchata Iced Coffee

Autumn has been pretty wishy washy in San Diego. One day it's kind of chilly. The next day it's 90°F. Although I haven't been able to wear any layers, I did enjoy a horchata ice coffee. Mexican Horchata is traditionally made with white rice, cinnamon, sugar, & condensed milk. Essentially, it's superb.

breakfast in bed

Breakfast in Bed

I was feeling particularly down, & Fred was kind enough to surprise me with breakfast in bed. At the time it was about noon, so technically you could call it breakfast for lunch in bed. Either way, it was such a sweet surprise & delicious to boot.

Sex & the City

Fred & I are watching Sex & the City. I've seen the series before, but this is Fred's first go. He says he enjoys the writing, the characters, & the acting. It's pretty cool to be able to watch one of your favorite shows & know your boyfriend doesn't hate it.

pine needle candle

Pine Candle

Although this claims to be a Christmas scented candle, I've been using my pine essential oil for months now. Needless to say, I like pine at anytime. This was the only scent I liked out of any of the seasonal candles. Pumpkin candles are not for me.

fresh bread

Fresh Bread

We need fresh bread in our lives. Not the stuff that you buy at the grocery store. I'm talking about the bread you bake yourself (let's be real, that's a best case scenario) or the one you buy on a crisp Saturday morning at the farmers market. More of that bread please.

What are you loving right now? :]


  1. I love Sex & the city - its my go to box set!!
