July/August Favorites

This pic has a cluster of favs. The first is my blush pink jumpsuit from Zara! Look at that thing. I feel so fab in it that I had to grab my toe. I’m also proud that I can finally do that yoga pose. I also can do crow now. It’s been 4 months of yoga so far and I still love it. Can’t wait to do pretzels in the sky. 

Second, is the table!!! I struggled to get that thing home! But it was so worth it. I ordered it online from Urban Outfitters and had to get it delivered to work, got an uber, and swayed it to my apt. NY struggles! I love building things so it was rewarding in the end.

Third, is the Colorplan book on the middle shelf. Their papers and presentation is fab as always. Print will never be dead to me as much as people say.

Fourth, is my wallet from The Horse. I wanted a square zipper wallet in that red-brown leather so it now matches my key and card holder. I have a watch of theirs and love the quality of their products!

Fifth, is the black and white polka dot sunglass case. You have no idea how long it has taken me to find something decent to store my sunglasses that always break somehow. Thanks to Madewell, I found it! Bless them and SoHo for having easy access to shops!

Last but not least is that cactus card from the lovely Steph. She sent me the cutest package ever. Love you friend! And go check her blog out, she just had a beautiful baby girl named Mila! I can’t wait to meet her ❤

My buds have grown so much! My first plant was actually a Calathea and I killed the poor thing. It’s a beautiful and delicate plant that needed indirect lighting and I gave it too much shade. I decided to stick to succulents for now as I have the perfect windowsill for it. The far left is an Aloe Vera, good to have in case you burn yourself! Which is why the tips are cut off 😉 The middle plant is a Kalanchoe. It was about three inches high when I bought it. I didn’t think it would grow that tall! It goes way beyond what you think. It throws out these long whiskers so it can grab moisture. The avocado pot plant is a Mother of Thousands. Yeah it’s pretty alien as its babies grows from the edges of its leaves. Love that thing. It amazes me every time.

Having happy plants make me happy! I found this couple that hunts greenhouses and they said it beautifully. “We can’t imagine our home without houseplants; they make us happy, surprise us with new leaves and fill the corners (or in our case the whole house) with energy and life.”

There’s something that attracts me to enter & Other Stories. But the times I’ve went, it was hard to find anything that resonated with me. I gave it another chance and I found this ring. My sis said it’s very Fifth Element. Best compliment I could receive.

This pic may seem random but I have to talk about it. I tried that B.E.C sandwich at the Egg Shop and I still can’t stop thinking about it. Absolutely amazing. I’ve never eaten a bacon that completely melts in your mouth. And there’s this sauce on top of the bottom bun. I don’t even know what it is but hello you are welcome.

 

 

Songs that gave me goosebumps. Roosevelt swooped me away in August and Jamie Woon swooned me in July. 

Goodbye Summer, hello Fall! Some personal projects are coming to an end soon!
