Friday Favorites

I’ve really been slacking on the blog posts, but it’s been pretty busy lately. It seems like summer is officially gone and fall is now here considering it’s been raining for the past two days straight. I do love it though. It gives me the perfect excuse to stay under my covers and watch a TV show or a movie.

I’m feeling a little under the weather though and drinking loads of hot water and vitamin C tablets in a effort to ward off a cold. It would be a very inopportune time to fall sick.

Here are my highlights of the week:

A paneer wrap and potato salad make the perfect lunch.

A cool coffee shop that had lit up trees in the middle of it.

A mocha, my knee high boots, and bright nails can make even the dreary of days better.

Have a great weekend!

This week has flown by pretty fast. While I’m excited that most of my shows are back on the air, it makes me wonder where exactly summer went. Even more, I can’t believe we’re already halfway through September!

Here are some picture highlights of the week:

I saw this while I was driving through town and had to take a picture.

Enjoying a white chocolate mocha and a warm chocolate chip cookie at Tart by Tart bakery in San Francisco.

A look at one of the sari blouses I’m wearing during my brother’s wedding events.

The menu for a dessert truck at a local food truck gathering. I took home red velvet, salted caramel, and chocolate coconut cupcakes.

I hope you have a great weekend!

Why do weeks before a long and fun weekend always seem to drag? Whatever the reason, this has been a good week: I’ve posted in my blog every day! It feels great to be writing again, especially about things that interest me as well as having my own little space to be creative in any way I wish.

Labor Day always signals the end of summer for me, despite being done with school. I’m headed out of town tomorrow and I’m excited for one last summer hurrah.

And now to borrow from one of my favorite bloggers, Cupcakes and Cashmere on this Friday, I will be sharing pictures about things that have made me happy this week.

Have a wonderful long weekend!

My first Essie nail polishes: on the left is Turquoise and Caicos and the right is Cute as a Button.

Sweet potato fries baking in the oven. Recipe to follow next week.

My Pikake Lei candle makes my room smell wonderful and transports me back to Hawaii.

My trinity bracelets that I picked up in New York earlier this year. They taught me that  a little contrast is always good.

There is no better afternoon pick-me-up than a cup of ginger chai and banana nut bread.
