Hi, sweet petunias! And dudes. I’m sure guys don’t enjoy being called sweet petunias. Moving on.
This fine Tuesday brought to me my summer faves. First off, I rolled out of bed after getting 10 hours of sleep. How can that not be a favorite? Then, I trotted downstairs to my all-time favorite food:
I chilled, caught up on blogs, sipped a cup of black coffee and eventually got ready for the gym. My limit with coffee is sad right now. One cup? I’m ashamed.
The gym was faaaab. Mostly thanks to the happiest day of the month: Magazine Day! You know, that one magical day when two of your favorite magazines arrive:
Please take a moment to appreciate the 10th Anniversary Issue of VegNews and its superb cover:
August Glamour kept me company on the elliptical for an hour-ish. When it’s love, there ain’t no stoppin’.
I followed that up with about a half-hour of abs. My six-pack is under there somewhere.
Reading Glamour ignited the fashionista within, and allowed me to foray into another favorite:
I mixed my favorite Forever21 button-down with a Bisou-Bisou skirt that I’ve had since 10th grade, and tied it all together with one of MattyRich’s old belts and my Target sandals. This is me trying to be fierce:
Fashion with a dog peeing in the background— you can only find it here!
Mixing patterns is something semi-new to me, but with subtle, soft patterns, I think it’s doable:
And if the look is a total flop, there are always shades to hide behind:
Oh, HAYYY, freckles and moles.
Another bossy aspect of summer and free days is being able to take late-afternoon trips to Target. And who’s not a fan of Target, ya know? I needed a bathing suit that will stay put for my upcoming weekend adventures. (Patience, little sistah, on the details.) Of course they had something perfect in store!
Although, Target, could you please get some more flattering lighting in your dressing rooms? I like to pretend cellulite doesn’t exist. K? Great, thanks.
Some light shopping needed some light fuel, as my lunch had already worn off:
The Clif folks came to my hunger’s rescue, as they normally do. They’re so good at it:
Dinner was, you guessed it, another of my favorites. A salad of monster proportions:
Technically, I ate this for dinner Monday night. I felt it Tuesday morning. (YesI’mgross.)
Oh, my friends, can you tell that I finally have my blogging desire back? The zest and spice have returned! I didn’t want to say anything earlier, but I was lacking motivation. I can’t tell you how very thankful I am that my number one favorite thing, my love of blogging and communicating with thousands each day, has returned. Thank YOU for sticking with me!
Ciao for now,
QUESTIONS: What are your favorite things about summer? Favorite foods of summer? AND What’s your summer-wardrobe staple?
