If this is all we’ll ever be, I’ll just take defeat — cause I know I’d rather be alone

By on August 30, 2017
Date nights in are always nice, and it’s a good way to mix things up from always going out. Lately, I’ve been a much more indoor person. I’ve been quite tired and when I have free time I want to get some R&R.
Tim and I decided to have a nice dinner in, where we would dress up, and have everything set up like we were eating somewhere with stars. We had a bread plate with grapes and prosciutto (should have had cheese, I know). For our meal, we had some pesto pasta with green beans, tomato, and a fried egg and file mignon.
He was surprised I made all of this or more surprised with how I set it up. Props to me!
But anyways, we ended up drinking wine from Bonny Doon (it’s a winery that’s in Santa Cruz). The decoration at the wine tasting room was really unique! They even had a spaceship (mainly due to one of their wine’s history)!  I remember liking Cig Alt E. when I was there for a tasting, but I don’t like it so much now.

My consistency has been lacking with this blog, but I haven’t given up on it yet! It’s been such a whirlwind this past month, but some updates:

-My apartment is finally completed and everything is furnished and decorated (Thank you so much, Tim!). I’ll do another post with images.
-I have a second project at work! It’s very different, but it’s nice to have two things to work on side-by-side.
-I have lost weight! I’m really glad I started DietBet’s Transformer Challenge. So far, I have lost almost 10 pounds (9ish).
-I have finally started working on grad school applications for master programs.
-The temperature here in Livermore has been so awful. It has been fuming hot, and it’s supposed to be worse over the weekend.
-The current news lately has been making me [insert adj]. In the mix of all that’s going on, I’m hoping Houston will make a rapid recovery (and that the relief bill will pass), but those affected by Hurricane Harvey need our help. NPR has narrowed some ways people can donate to help.  I agree that donating to the Red Cross is great, but your dollar can often go further with smaller organizations!

Summer Travels

By on July 15, 2017

It seems like everyone is traveling this month! I haven’t gone anywhere exciting, but I do have a couple of events to dress up for.

Anyways, one of my close co-workers asked me to do some inspiration for her upcoming trip to Vegas, and I couldn’t say no! This post is dedicated to you, Lauren.

Travel-wear

Long car rides or flights are always a pain, but you can still look cute! The key is comfortability (for me, it’s a bit more loose clothing)! I do know some people who end up wearing sweat pants and when they arrive at their destination they change out to different clothes. In the case you don’t want to do that, I would go with some boyfriend jeans and a nicer top to look put together but you’ll also be comfortable.

It’s bright out

By on May 28, 2017

A couple of weeks ago, I was just writing out it’s been raining off-and-on, and I think the Bay Area is finally starting to warm up to spring! Since it’s spring, the sun is out and somewhat glaring. What does that mean? Sunglasses!

In a previous post, I wrote how I couldn’t forgive myself for losing so many nice pairs of sunglasses. Even though I haven’t been able to let go yet, it doesn’t mean that I don’t need sunglasses! I recently found this brand called Feisedy. The prices are decent, quite affordable, and I couldn’t find any negative review that made me not want to purchase them, so I decided to purchase two pairs.

The first pair I got was the silver/silver pair. This one goes with almost everything, so that’s a plus! The other pair I purchased was in gold/pink pair. I thought it would be good to have two pairs, especially when I’m prone to lose them.

I absolutely love how big these frames are! I’m a fan of bigger frames because I like the whole covering your face with sunglasses. Also, it’s a good sun protector in the California sun!

They also have so many other colors! Check them out! Have you heard of this brand before? If so, how did you like your sunglasses? Show me how you look in them as well! I would love to see!

Adieu,

Elizabeth
