Many of you know that I work at a coffee shop, right?
Well, on my day off, I turned traitor and got my caffeine fix at the notorious Starbucks. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a macchiato, no matter where it's made. Albeit, I don't like their hot drinks anymore. For some reason, their espresso shots taste burnt to me. But if you get it iced, it's not so bad. My tastebuds are now adjusted to Moxie Java's espresso apparently! Haha, I've mentioned to my co-workers before, and apparently they get the same burnt taste that I do.
Anyway, for some photos, I decided to use my brand-stamped cup as a prop for some photos. This is what I wore last week for a day of thrifting with Corina. It's not often I wear pink, but while getting dressed, I instinctively started dressing in black and white (my work's dress code). I stopped myself. Halt! What was I doing!? Today was my day off. I had to wear some color. My eyes scanned the drawer, passing over the typical denim shorts I always reach for. Instead, they landed on these watermelon pink pair. The rest of this outfit came together easily, especially since I'd recently picked up this little scarf at the thrift store a couple weeks ago. It really added that special touch this simple outfit needed!
So Corina and I set out in the 97 degree heat and wandered through aisles, found a few pieces of clothing, and then went to Hastings to pick out a few books. Now that there's a little more time in my days, I've been diving back into books and am so happy to return to my bookworm habits. I tore through The Fault In Our Stars recently, and man, did that rend my heart a bit. I was even reading it at work, in between the dead moments when there was nothing to do. It probably didn't help that I read it through 2 AM just to finish it, but I was crying on and off for about the last 50 pages.
All I can say is, I know I'm not alone in this!
