Saturday Morning Coffee Talks//5.7.2016

Good morning everybody, it has been a while since I last did post a coffee talk and I really miss doing them. This last 5 weeks have been quite “interesting” to say the least (check out this journal post for the full update)

Highlight of the past week// I cleaned my room and everything is now nice and organized. I expect that it will go back to normal in bout 3 days (normal being the absolute disaster it originally was in)

In the future// I am very excited for mothers day to see my family and spend time with everyone.

Latest disaster// hmmm…let me think? MY LIFE lol

Latest addiction// spotify! I just recently got the app and yes as cheap as I am paid for the premium package and I am in love!

Things that made me smile// an elderly lady at the grocery store couldn’t reach the top shelf and as I was going to help her a group of teenage boys helped her reach it. I saw them 20 minutes later and they were helping her get her shopping done and loading the groceries into her car. I was about to cry, it was so sweet.

Quote of the week//

Saturday Morning Coffee Talks// 9.12.2015

Hey lovely people! Today SMCT is a collaboration with Jelena from A Thousand Shades of J she is an amazing writer and blogger, and is defiantly worth checking out! So this wee was the first week back to school so I will be mostly talking about how I am officially in grade 10

Highlights of the past week// I got to see all my friends that I haven’t seen in awhile and I am lucky to have 1 class with one of my best friends!

Lowlights// I had a rough draft of an essay due on friday a long with a science test…Welcome to Grade 10 😦

Favourite Meal// This ones new but this week for lunch I had red quinoa salad with pears, mango, cranberries and raspberry vinaigrette….I died and went to heaven. Definitely recommend making it.

Latest Adventure// trying to find my period 1 portable class, I went into about 4 different portables before realizing my class was in the port-a-pack. It’s not the most exciting adventure but I never had a portable class last year so this was uncharted territory

In the future// I will mostly be trying to settle into school some more, nothing exciting but it is fun to catch up with friends

Latest Thought// “Where even is my class?”

My Reader// I have been adoring Jelena’s blog! She talks about her travels and experiences, and my personal favourite, her fashion posts! She links all the items she wears and likes on her blog which makes it super easy to buy and order the ones I love. Her foody posts are great too and always healthy. No matter what you want to read A Thousand Shades of J has it all in one place, it truly is the versatile lifestyle blog. Please check her out, you will not regret it.

This weekend// I am babysitting my little sister and I am stuck doing homework, nothing exciting but it’s gotta be done.

Latest Addiction// Brookeside Chocolate especially the blueberry and açai one, god it’s delicious!

Latest Disaster// My locker this year is destroyed so I can’t put anything at the bottom because it’s on a slant so I moved 7 lockers over, but I apparently am not supposed to do that so looks like I am living on the wild side! I just realized I sounded like an idiot by saying that but whatever

Quote of the week//  

Life isn’t measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breaths away -Unknown

So that was my week and I hope yours went well too, make sure to check out A Thousand Shades of J and I will talk to you all later

Saturday Morning Coffee Talks//8.29.2015

Morning everyone, so it’s that time of the week again where I quickly talk about how my week went and upcoming events. This coffee talk is a bit different because it is a collaboration with an amazing girl Paradoxical Sadness definitely check her out, she is an amazing blogger.

Highlights of the past week//  My really good friend came back from camp after spending the whole summer as a camp councillor, it was awesome catching up with her, we went on an awesome bike ride and got some ice cream, You don’t realize how much you miss someone until they come back.

In the future// This week it’s all about getting ready for back to school. I am looking forward to getting back into a routine but it is still bittersweet.

Latest Adventure// Biking around my city, I have lived here all my life but still don’t know how to get around very well.

Latest thought// “Holy Cow! this year is gonna be a lot harder

Latest Disaster// My phone cracked! I went to go put it down on the table, lost my balanced and slammed it down…this week was not the best for luck but what can you do.

My Reader// I have been loving The Paradoxical Sadness post lately, her blog is like a look into her mind and that is what I love about it. Recently she wrote a post about A list of things to be accomplished and I loved reading about her personal goals, dream and aspirations. Sometimes she writes diary post, other times updates about her life. What ever it is, I always enjoy reading it. If you love bloggers that post often and are filled with ideas and questions, you will love this blog!

This weekend// I have another post in the works and it is something different from what I usually do but I love trying new things.

Saturday Morning Coffee Talks// 8.22.2015

Ciao, this is my new series where I sum up the week and all the highlights, funny moments, and little thoughts. I hope these post will help you get to know me better.

Highlights of the past week// I went shopping with my really good friend and snagged some awesome deals. It was supper nice just to sit down and catch up with each other considering we hadn’t talked in a month. Life get’s so busy.

In the future// I am looking forward to heading to the amusement park with some great people this Tuesday. It is are farewell to summer idea and I am kind of upset that we will be heading back to school soon, I am even more upset to have to put the uniform back on 😦

Latest Addiction// Sticky notes… I have been using them for everything, lists, reminders, tasks. I am in love with the sticky note system and it is not leaving anytime soon.

Latest thought// How ugly I am going to look in the uniform this year….and how my extended family’s trip was to Italy

Latest Craving// Duhh! Caffeine…especially Lindt dark chocolate

What I am Watching// I lately have been glued to the TV. For reality tv shows it is Bachelor In Paradise which has 10 times the drama of the Bachelor/Bachelorette. Lately I have been reliving the old times by watching Degrassi The Next Generation (when Drake was on) and the regular Degrassi that recently ended, I am still heart broken. I am re-watching Awkward before the epic season 5 starts on August 31.

Latest Track// I have been loving Ryan Adams cover of Wonderwall by Oasis. He has been hot in the media for covering Taylor Swifts latest tracks but I have a special place in my heart for any good cover of Wonderwall.

This weekend// I am relaxing in my backyard, trying to enjoy every waking moment summer has to offer. As well as babysitting and researching the criteria that is expected of me this school year.

What’s up// I have been taking a lot of time to work on my blogging and have met some supper cool blogger friends along the way so stay tuned for that. Plus I got a beauty post on the way

Thats my life update, these will becoming every week on Saturdays
