Hello friends! Hope you are all doing well, and as your weekends are about to begin - that there are many brunches in your future. I just wanted to thank you all for following along with my burgeoning blog. It's going to take a little bit of time for me to hit my stride (and y'know come up with a posting schedule), but thanks for bearing with me while I figure things out around here.
To keep you up to date with all things YYZ -> BOS, here's your weekly CURRENTLY update.
I'm probably super late on this train, but avocado toasts are THE BEST. I can't get enough of them. I had a super late lunch after yoga class today, and these little toasties curbed my cravings (and filled my belly). Super easy and delicious (+ nutritious)! This version has mashed avocado (with a splash of lime juice + chili flakes + tbs of olive oil), non-fat cottage cheese, sliced tomatoes, and is topped with a little salt + pepper + chilli flakes.
I've been cooking a lot lately in an effort to order less take out. Last week Pedro and I challenged ourselves to make all of our meals at home, and I would like to announce that we have been very successful in our endeavours! We only went to Chipotle once after we saw a movie last weekend! We've even made all of my americanos at home. Go team!
So many happy mail days this week! Well... two of them anyways! Yesterday, these fab Jeffrey Campbell Hanger booties arrived, and they are AMAZING. I don't want to take them off! Hence, why they are being worn with my also new forrest green yoga pants in the above photo. So not cool... I promise that they are being worn with real outfits too! But I'm breaking them in, ok?
Yoga! And a lot of it! Well I've been practicing everyday anyways. I'm challenging myself to practice everyday this month. I usually aim to practice at home 5x a week (sometimes it's 3-4), so it's not a huge stretch. But this week, I made an effort to leave the apartment and go to the studio. I've also started my first Instagram yoga challenge (I'm trying to keep busy), which started on October 1st. It's the #letsgetflexy challenge with @kinoyoga + @beachyogagirl. It has only been a few days, but I'm enjoying myself so far. Plus, it's fun to connect with people with similar interests and a common goal. Along with this blog, the challenge is forcing me to take photographs daily, which is awesome. My dusty SLR is finally being put to some use, and that makes me really happy.
I know that the whole of the internet has mentioned it by now, but Gilmore Girls is on Netflix! Do you know how exciting this is? Ok, so maybe it's not that exciting, but it does make me feel awfully nostalgic for my younger years (in a good way). I am admittedly already on the second season, which (along with Season 3) is my favourite.
This still is from my favorite episode. Ok, you caught me, it's obvious that I just have a crush on Jess. The show is a little different watching it through this time around. Maybe it's because I can't really relate to Rory (she's too young in the early seasons) or Lorelai (she's definitely a little older) at this point in my life? BUT, I do enjoy their fast-talking, clever, pop-culture quips as much as ever!
Pedro and I are going on a date tonight. Tapas, sangria, and a movie! I'm pretty excited. Definitely going to rock my new boots ;)
Until next time,
