first things first, i'm still fat. seriously tyra banks style, "dear diary, i'm fat. sparkles!".
that being said, i am starting to realize that while i have these great diet plans i'm REALLY not following them, especially when i drink. [cue taco bell fourth meal on sunday night. really? i'm surprised i'm not losing weight? really?] other problem, of course, is that i don't actually hate the way (i just typed weigh...this is definitely on my mind) i look, i just hate the numbers on the scale - i know, i could stop weighing myself, but that's how i get into these gradual weight gain messes. ANYWAYS, it's June 15th and i live in San Diego. i'm going to have to stop avoiding bikini season sometime, so i think ten pounds by Independence Day is reasonable, non?
okay, all that is out of the way (have i ever posted NOT regarding weight? i don't think so)...
i'm so excited because i've decided to get my own little one bedroom apartment! this means not only will i be spending buckets of money on clothing (because obviously i'll lose those ten pounds now that i've given myself a timeline, right? ha.) i'll be spending money on HOME GOODS!! i can't wait to share!
speaking of which, i've been looking at some art for my little apartment and i'm really fixated on letterpress things off Etsy...check these out:
(1) la vie en rose by sycamorestreetpress
(2) champagne by dearcolleen
(3) sunshine by inkpetals
the problem is, of course, that they're all so distinctly different and with such unique styles, and my color palette is definitely seaglass blues and greens, not pinks and yellows. if anything my kitchen palette has the brightest colors but i just don't think the sunshine and the champagne print belong on the same wall, and with so few walls i'd hate to pick one over the other! obviously this will take serious contemplation and the purchase of multiple other images i like "almost" as much until i finally suck it up, buy both of them and figure out how to make them work.
don't worry girls, i'll get that lilly answer on the sororities (i know delta delta delta is another one, i remember that one because it's my best friend emma's sorority) as soon as we get back from this ammunition offload we're doing (should be this weekend) - can't wait to tell y'all and sneak you some early pics if i get any!
outfits i haven't been able to resist (since you know i haven't been buying dresses..fortunately skirts and tops don't count). i wore the avery skirt smaller, tighter and shorter over a white tank top and chunky wood Michael Kors heels and i wore the roe top over white ankle length capris with spaghetti strap mckims:
and yes, i bought both of them in white do the wave...definitely one of my favorite prints for the summer.
and lastly, i started cleaning out the cupboards in preparation for my big move and remembered i had these cans of soup and snack bars:
review? campbell's select harvest full cans are only 100 calories! i don't know about you but an entire can of soup for 100 calories is such a pleasant surprise. the soups are totally delicious and filling (i've done the southwestern style vegetable and the italian vegetable).
fullbars, on the other hand...
seriously, they taste like cardboard. and i LIKE things that taste like styrofoam (Pirate's Booty, anyone?) but these things genuinely taste like chewy cardboard. the problem? they work. i had one at 1130 because i was starting to get hungry and had a bottle of water (they recommend 8 oz., i went with 24...God bless you, camelbak water bottle) at the same time, and i seriously did not THINK about food until twenty minutes ago (about 230), when i decided to eat my soup.
so unfortunately, given their TERRIBLE grade for mouth feel, i think these may become a new staple.
don't forget to check out the kate spade sample sale, btw! not as good as last time jewelry wise, in my opinion, but there are quite a few bags.
i am booking my brazilian blowout for next week - can't wait to show you before and after pictures!
