Friday Phone Dump

“Just stop your crying
Have the time of your life
Breaking through the atmosphere
And things are pretty good from here
Remember everything will be alright
We can meet again somewhere
Somewhere far away from here”

1) I’ve been spending Fridays in coffee shops in order to explore more of our new city (and drink great coffee…obviously).  My favorite so far is B2 in the San Pedro Square market–they make Americanos exactly how I like them (with just enough hot water to give me a drink I can sip on, but not so much that it dilutes the espresso), they have the friendliest baristas in town, and they always have great music playing.  What’s not to love?  In other words, if “reading tea leaves” is a thing, can “reading espresso foam” be a thing too?  Mostly kidding…

2) Weekend vibes.

3) My sweet friend, Rachel, mailed me a surprise gift earlier this week!  How cute is this mug?  I’ve actually had a few friends mail me lovely things since we’ve been here and it is just the best.  My wonderful friend, Kelsey, mailed me a suuuuper beautiful photo from one of her hikes in the Rockies right after we moved in!  I haven’t found the perfect frame for it yet, but when I get it I’ll show ya.  Anyway, I love getting mail–but who doesn’t?!

4) Crepe Myrtles!

5) When we were in England, it seemed like everyone we met used products from Lush.  I had barely heard of them before, but I decided to try out their moisturizing oatmeal mask when I was having dry skin issues across the pond. It was great!  Anyway, I’ve decided to slowly try the rest of their products to see if I find any that are just the best thing ever or something.  This Brazened Honey mask is really nice, but I’m not sure it’s the exact right thing for my skin (pretty sensitive and on the dry-er side…in case you were wondering haha).  I also tried a bath bomb for the first time this week–it was ok.  I guess I’m just not a big bath person?  Anyway, sorry if all of this is TMI, but let me know if you have any favorites from Lush or anywhere else!

6) More pretty plants…always pretty plants :)

7) This is possibly my favorite corner of our apartment building–so dreamy.

This weekend we’re going to the beach!  We haven’t been (unless you count our walk around the coast near the Golden Gate Bridge?  I don’t really count that) since we’ve moved to California, so it’s about time!

I hope your long weekend is fun and relaxing :)

love,

M
