The here and the now #1

Making a point to invest more time in something that means a lot to me; writing.

Cooking not-so-much this weekend, but always wanting to learn new recipes.

Drinking Coca-Cola, of course- but making an effort to drink more water daily.

Reading “Cut Me Loose” by Leah Vincent, a memoir about growing up in Orthodox Judaism. As long as I can remember, I’ve had an interest in Jewish heritage and culture. I’m only a little ways into it, but it’s been really interesting so far.

Wanting this leather tote bag from Madewell with my initials on it, but I need another purse like I need a sharp stick in the eye.

Looking forward to this summer. I’m hoping to make a few little weekend trips here and there, and for a chance to have some photography adventures.

Playing Game of Thrones from the beginning. Season 1 is nuts and it’s hard to believe that it’s just the beginning. Can’t House Lannister and House Stark just get along?

Wishing my puppy a quick recovery from her spay surgery. She really doesn’t seem pleased about the whole situation- especially the cone she has to wear for the next ten or so days.

Enjoying leftover pizza, just because it’s one of those days. Fish and chips tonight with an old friend are in order.

Waiting for no one. It’s my new mantra. It’s all about keepin’ on keepin’ on these days.

Liking the iOS app Afterlight for editing photos on the go. It’s clever and easy to use, and I especially love the filters and contrast tweaks on it.

Hoping to get several projects done at work next week. Servers and users of said servers wait for no woman (or man).

Marveling at how beautiful San Diego is, even when it’s “gloomy” outside.

Needing a cute present for my mom for Mother’s Day no more. Mission accomplished: I finally found one and ordered it this morning.

Wearing the outfit below, with my shirt that reminds me of a Rorshach test from Allsaints. I’m so stoked that they recently opened up a store in Fashion Valley here in San Diego. I loved visiting their store when I studied abroad in London in college- it’s nice to not have to travel so far for cool clothes!

Excuse the selfie.

Bookmarking Designlovefest. The blogger there has beautiful taste, and shares some great desktop and phone wallpapers for download. I love surfing her site for inspiration.

Giggling at this. One of my coworkers sent this to me and I about died laughing at my desk.

Feeling the lazy Saturday feels. It’s been nice to hang around home and relax after a long week.

Inspiration for this post style from Penny. Check out her blog for a beautiful take on life and style!
