A very beautiful film...found via Tomboy Style
Its been a couple of weeks since I have posted. I have been so busy getting used to school. Moving in, starting classes, new friends, and exciting adventures. Here are a few photos I took over the past two weeks. Enjoy!
These are a few snapshots from my dorm room. I have been busy moving in and exploring which explains the lack of posts.
I am doing my best to keep it clean and uncluttered, but it is proving a difficult task with so little space. However, I am in love with how my bed turned out. It is exactly how I imagined.

Delicious food and good company are always a great start to the day. We went to a cafe in Burlingame, but I can't recall the name. I had a stack of chocolate-chip pancakes, a special sweet treat for the weekend.
You know that one project you started ages ago, but haven't seemed to finish. You work on it little by little when you can spare the time. Well this is that project for me. I started this almost two years ago and have yet to come close to finishing it. I usually end up knitting a few rows while watching TV and then putting it down before picking it up again a few months later
I found the pattern on Ravelry after seeing this version. The pattern is called Woodland shawl. I decided to knit mine in brushed suri by Frog Tree Yarns for a softer texture. Scarves are not my favorite type of project as I tend to get bored halfway through which is probably why it is taking me so long to finish this one.
Chlorophyll is known to have many healthy benefits some of which include, minimizing appetite and cleansing the body. I find it is both refreshing, detoxing and I feel more awake each time I take a sip. It is a great drink on a hot day or first thing in the morning. I am excited to share this recipe with you and I can't imagine my life without it. It has by far become one of my favorite drinks. The ingredients are simple and it is easy to make. The chlorophyll can be found at a natural food store such as Whole Foods and the Stevia extract can be found at almost any local grocery store.
Here is the recipe:
-1 tall glass of water
-3 drops chlorophyll
-3 drops of stevia extract
Add all drops into water and mix fully.
Carpenter's Daughter makes beautiful heavy-duty, multipurpose aprons. Aprons can come in handy for cooking, art projects and more heavy duty purposes. At the moment, I have a pair of overalls that I wear for projects and painting, but an apron is a lot easier to take on and off.

In June, it was announced that Starbucks had decided to close all of it's La Boulange locations. I was shocked and then upset. I felt like I had just discovered something amazing and now it would be gone forever (A bit dramatic I know). They aren't gone yet, but their impending closure has upset many people including me.
I first visited La Boulange in San Francisco early last year. I loved the atmosphere from the start. Although it was a chain, it still felt like a neighborhood cafe. The bakery display filled with delicious looking pastries, families enjoying brunch, friends meeting up, and people furiously typing away at their computers. Steaming London fog lattes, lemon turnovers, and Provencal BLTs. All some of my favorites from their menu. Starbucks will continue to sell a few of the same pastries at many of its locations, but it won't be the same. The atmosphere won't be there.
