Hey everyone!
Its been a couple of weeks since I have posted.  I have been so busy getting used to school. Moving in, starting classes, new friends, and exciting adventures. Here are a few photos I took over the past two weeks. Enjoy!

My New Room

These are a few snapshots from my dorm room. I have been busy moving in and exploring which explains the lack of posts.

I am doing my best to keep it clean and uncluttered, but it is proving a difficult task with so little space. However, I am in love with how my bed turned out. It is exactly how I imagined.

What I Wore // Brunch on Saturday

Delicious food and good company are always a great start to the day. We went to a cafe in Burlingame, but I can't recall the name. I had a stack of chocolate-chip pancakes, a special sweet treat for the weekend.



Knitting // Woodland shawl

You know that one project you started ages ago, but haven't seemed to finish. You work on it little by little when you can spare the time. Well this is that project for me. I started this almost two years ago and have yet to come close to finishing it. I usually end up knitting a few rows while watching TV and then putting it down before picking it up again a few months later

I found the pattern on Ravelry after seeing this version. The pattern is called Woodland shawl. I decided to knit mine in brushed suri by Frog Tree Yarns for a softer texture. Scarves are not my favorite type of project as I tend to get bored halfway through which is probably why it is taking me so long to finish this one. 



Recipe // Refreshing Green Drink

Refreshing Green chlorophyll Drink Recipe

      Chlorophyll is known to have many healthy benefits some of which include, minimizing appetite and cleansing the body.  I find it is both refreshing, detoxing and I feel more awake each time I take a sip. It is a great drink on a hot day or first thing in the morning. I am excited to share this recipe with you and I can't imagine my life without it.  It has by far become one of my favorite drinks. The ingredients are simple and it is easy to make. The chlorophyll can be found at a natural food store such as Whole  Foods and the Stevia extract can be found at almost any local grocery store. 

Here is the recipe:

-1 tall glass of water
-3 drops chlorophyll
-3 drops of stevia extract

Add all drops into water and mix fully.

Look Book Love // Carpenter's Daughter Aprons F/W15

     Carpenter's Daughter makes beautiful heavy-duty, multipurpose aprons. Aprons can come in handy for cooking, art projects and more heavy duty purposes. At the moment, I have a pair of overalls that I wear for projects and painting, but an apron is a lot easier to take on and off.
