Lovely Lily

it’s been a rough few weeks around my house.

as some readers of my blog may know, my dad has been valiantly battling bladder cancer for the last year and things have simply gone down hill lately.

so I apologize for the lack of blogging, however family comes first.

in the mean time, we do receive flowers frequently and I had to share this beautiful lily that opened up. (excuse the photo quality, it’s from my phone.)

A Little Taste of Nature

It’s been a busy January so I haven’t been able to put pen to paper (fingers to computer?) for my blog as often as I might have liked. Fortunately, I have been able to soak up some of California’s wonderful weather and take a few hikes outside with Buddy.

I thought I’d share some of my favorite Instagram photos from my time in the golden hills of California.

Obsession of the Week | Contigo Travel Mug

Hi all!

Apologies for being so slow on getting my posts up.  I’ve spent the last few weeks/weekends packing, moving, unpacking and of course, working.  Fortunately, during that time I’ve been keeping track of stuff to blog about, so have no fear posts are coming soon!

Currently, my obsession of the week year is my new Contigo brand travel mug.

 

This bottle is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I have been using it for both coffee and water throughout my day and it is fantastic.  The description on the website doesn’t lie — it really does keep hot stuff hot for 6 hours and keeps cold stuff cold for 20 hours.  This morning I woke up (at 8:20am) to ice-cold water that still contained actual ice cubes.  Keep in mind that I put ice cubes in it at 7pm last night — that’s insane! The best part: ABSOLUTELY NO CONDENSATION — one of my biggest pet peeves about most water bottles.

Anyway, I know it’s only a travel mug (for coffee, water, whatever), but it is totally worth every cent of the $25.  There is only one downside and that is the fact that only the lid is dishwasher safe (the bottle itself must be hand-washed), but if you are only using it for water, you can get away with not washing it everyday.

I would highly suggest this bottle or pretty much any other Contigo item because they make really high-quality items that will be a vital part of your everyday life!

Senioritis

Apologies blogging world, I have had a bad case of senioritis.

My life has been all kinds of crazy these last few weeks and unfortunately my blog has suffered.

Graduation is 8 days away and there will definitely have to be some big changes to my blog with this new transition in my life because my tagline of “college student. coffee addict. hopeless romantic. girly girl. blogger.” won’t be accurate, as I will no longer be a college student. SO CRAZY!!

Anyway, stay tuned for the future of my blog and please keep the comments and resharing up, it means a lot to me!

Despite my hectic life, I have gotten in a few moments of relaxation in, so here’s a picture that will hopefully bring some sunshine and positive thoughts to your world

Spring Cleaning

today is quite an icky day. clouds. a few sprinkles here and there. and overall just a stay inside kinda day.

according to the calendar it is technically spring. so i decided to take my free saturday to do some “not-such-a-spring day, spring cleaning.” this is from instagram. clearly all the stuff piled on my bed is a sign that i have a lot left to do… so i better get back to it instead of being distracted by the interweb. :)

hope it’s warm and sunny wherever you’re spending spring and you’re out having fun… or cleaning. whatever makes you happy!
