What I Did

What I did: September 8

Last night I went to bed lusting over the idea of having a fancy bagel with cream cheese from Rockstar Bagels. Sadly that didn’t happen this morning when I woke up. One day though!

Instead, I ended up putting on a face mask and making breakfast at home.


I made myself a banana coffee smoothie with cinnamon and topped it off with some shreaded coconut. The sack of mushrooms I bought in bulk started molding, so I settled for baked sweet potato fries. If you have any tips on how to store mushrooms in a paper bag, let me know! I thought having it sealed on the counter was fine, but apparently not because it created moisture inside and started to mold 😦

Now that it’s September, the weather has cooled a bit, but not cool enough to wear flannel sadly. It’s OK though because I’m definitely feeling the `70s trend that’s been happening this summer.


Today’s outfit:
Tank and bandana from Madewell
Circle skirt from American Apparel
Sandals from Sperry’s

Breakfast (or lunch considering how I usually get out of bed around 12 a.m.) is my favorite meal to cook. I’ve gotten it down to a science, really. About three to four months ago I had the great idea to have make my interpretation of an English breakfast by incorporating baked beans and sautéed mushrooms with whatever else I was craving that week. After having eaten almost the same meal every day, my breakfast go-to includes a combination of:

  • baked beans
  • baked sweet potato fries
  • sauerkraut
  • sautéed mushrooms with garlic
  • bacon
  • green onion and spinach egg omelette (or scramble if the omelette breaks!)
  • English muffins with jam or hummus
  • sunny-side up egg
  • small salad
  • green or fruit smoothie

What’s your go-to breakfast?

Banana bread chocolate chip muffins

So I woke up this morning with the intention of going to the gym, but that never happened haha. I ended up checking Instagram in bed and finally decided on using the two super ripe bananas I had lying around to make the easiest banana bread muffins that I meant to make earlier this week with bananas that have seen better days. (TL;DR: I put them in the fridge, left them there for too long, and they turned into banana mush. Yeah, I know. Sorry, Dad.)
