Harvard on a Sunday

My boyfriend and I spent our Sunday in Harvard Square. We rolled out of bed and were greeted by a beautiful crispy morning. I was finally able to pull out my tall boots and was able to throw on that extra layer. We had breakfast at Tory Row. I've been slowly easing myself back into eating solid foods so I got this amazing veggie frittata and some home fries. 

Following breakfast we meandered through Harvard's campus, pretending we were every bit as smart as those guys. We finally made it to one of my favorite spots in Cambridge, the Museum of Natural History. While I could do without the creepy bug exhibit, the mineral and glass flower exhibits never get boring. In fact when Andrew told me he wanted to go I said "They have an awesome rock collection!" He thought I was being sarcastic, but I was completely serious. 

Here's to good food, good company, and an awesome rock collection! Oh and to more Sundays like this one.

I got my wisdom teeth taken out on Monday so I've been trying my best to take it easy. I stayed in bed for the most the day on Monday and Tuesday, but then I made the mistake of going a little too hard at work on Wednesday. Eating little but mashed potatoes and a smoothies was not enough to prepare my body for a long day at work.

I'm the type of person who just has to keep moving no matter what the obstacles. I very rarely allow myself the time to recharge. This past week has really shown me the importance of giving myself that time to recuperate. I need to remind myself to take care of myself, especially when my body isn't at its best. 

This smoothie has been my salvation:

Two scoops of Whey powder, frozen mango, kale, coconut milk, and chia seeds.

Fall is coming

(Sweater, slip & boots all by Free People)

 It's always hard for me to bid adieu to tan skin and days of freedom when September rolls around, but it's comforting knowing that summer will be back before we know it. I've gotta say I am beyond ready for sweater weather.  While, of course it's still about 1000 degrees outside I find myself ready to wrap myself in a cozy pullover and sip on some chai tea. I consider myself a summertime person. of you who know me personally will know that I am quite a fan of layering for fall and winter. A my cold weather uniform consists of exactly this, a sweater, a slip dress, tall socks, and my favorite boots.

Here's to sweater weather coming soon!

Cape Cod

The last time I was on the Cape was when I was about 15, so going back at 22 was pretty refreshing. We were staying in Truro, which I found to be much less touristy than places like Hyannis or Provincetown. It was quiet and relaxing and exactly what I needed after a long summer of doing nothing but work. I just wish I could have had more time!

Zella Day at the Sinclair

A few weeks ago, me and a friend of mine from work, Janel went to see Zella Day. Working at Free People, this girl's music is everywhere, from the Free People Blog to the playlist we play at the store and with good reason. She currently only has one album out, Kicker, so it was awesome to know all the songs she performed! 

It was my first time seeing a show at the Sinclair in Cambridge and I must say that there is nothing like a small venue to really get a unique concert experience. I've always been one for a personal touch, whether it's something handmade with love and even just a little extra kindness. Being at a small venue, watching an artist I love with a cold Blue Moon in my hand is my idea of a good show. 

Awesome show, Zella! Cannot wait to see what you will do next! If y'all have not watched her video for Hypnotic DO IT!
