Now What?

I'm kind of super obsessed with this follow up to Sheryl Sandbergs Lean In talk.
I won't say too much about it, because it is most definitely worth the watch!

5 Minute Breakfast

Though I have a lot less responsibilities these days, I still feel like I'm always on the go. To be honest, some days I'm willing to take shortcuts during my morning routine in order to make some more time for sleep! If I can get something done in under 5 minutes these days, it's a victory. 

Enter breakfast. My admittedly most missed meal (hello alliteration) of the day. Some mornings I really just need to get out of the door, and if that means no breakfast then I'm stuck with a grumbly stomach until lunch. I'm really trying to change this bad habit and so far this breakfast burrito recipe is a huge help. 

Cereal Bowl Egg & Cheese Breakfast Burrito


Recipe: Line 2-cup microwave-safe cereal bowl with microwave-safe paper towel. Press tortilla into bowl. Break egg into center of tortilla. Beat egg gently with a fork until blended, being careful not to tear tortilla. 
Microwave on high for 30 seconds; stir. Microwave until egg is almost set, 15 to 30 seconds longer. Remove tortilla with paper towel liner from bowl to flat surface. Top the egg with cheese and salsa. Fold bottom of tortilla over egg, then fold in sides.

First off how delicious does that sound? And it really only takes 5 minutes! 

Grumbly stomachs no more!

Wanderlust

Hello! It's been super quiet around here!
First off let me say that though I missed blogging, I also really enjoyed taking a bit of a break. I was definitely feeling a bit of burnout and the break was really refreshing. I did fall behind on blog work - but don't fret I will be catching up! 

While I was away, I spent a lot of time on Pinterest and now I have a serious case of wanderlust. 
I really want to travel to Europe and take in all of the beautiful sights. Imagine how wonderful a few weeks in a foreign country, completely disconnected would be? I need to take a trip - and soon!

The 1975

So yesterday I tweeted a link to a song by The 1975 that I totally love. I'll admit that I only learned about this band because of a cover I heard of their popular song Chocolate. Through that song, I started to listen to a few others and became obsessed with the band! I think their songs are absolutely perfect for working to. So upbeat and fun!

Below are a few of my favourite songs by The 1975 that I hope you will enjoy!

My Favourite Pinterest Accounts!

I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest
Love because it is obviously an amazing way to gather and share ideas, quotes, recipes, etc. 
Hate because I waste spend so much time scrolling through Pins!

There are a handful of accounts I follow that I find myself pinning from often. 
I guess you can call them my favourite Pinterest accounts! 


I used to read Domino magazine religiously when it was in print. 
I was really upset when they stopped print on the magazine, but elated to find that the Pinterest account was still around! 


Every Pin is just so colourful and fun. 
I just can't resist!


I love Matchbook Magazine. 
I'm always tempted to go out and shop after perusing their Pinterest boards!


In another life, I would totally be a party planner. 
Revelry House is great because they have amazing party ideas and tips! 


Surely you saw this coming. 
I really just love everything about this brand! 

xoxo

PS: Are you following me on Pinterest?

Golden Globes Look Book

I love awards season solely because I can live vicariously through everyone who attends. I mean, who would not want to wear a fabulous designer gown and have their hair and makeup beautifully done by professionals? 

I definitely wouldn't say no to that! 

There were so many gorgeous looks at the Golden Globes last night and I had such a hard time choosing my favourite looks!
