Remember when my Monday morning roundups were full of cool things I did over the weekend? LOL. My life seems to have dropped off a bit since then but I will try to make this week’s first post as exciting as possible.
Aside from a fairly productive Sunday, my weekend achievements amounted to watching the whole first season of Scream Queens (13 episodes) in 24 hours due to being fairly ill. I did manage to sneak in a girl’s night with one of my besties on Thursday before the bug of death hit me. We checked out Figo at John and Adelaide where we feasted on house made ricotta with fig and prosciutto, arancini, a mushroom pizza, and of course, a glass of the house rosé! We followed up the meal by hitting up Sweet Jesus for an ice cream cone. Jess got the Bangin’ Brownie while I opted for the Lemon Coconut Cream Pie (10/10 would recommend).
I’ve basically been occupying all of my free time planning for my upcoming Eurotrip (only 8 more days!) and daydreaming about all the places I’d like to see in the world. I’ve spent countless hours scouring the Internet and my travel book collection planning more trips I hope to take in the very near future. If you are just discovering your travel bug or if you just can’t stop thinking about places to visit I’d highly recommend the Travel Guide for the Young, Sexy and Broke and the Ultimate Travelist. This are my two favourite books to explore and dogear when it comes to what I should see, eat and do around the world.
I’m quickly coming to terms with the fact that summer is over and fall is slowly arriving. It’s been killing me to wait to break out my fall clothes because our Canadian weather switches between cool and hot as the day goes on. Looking back on this summer, I would say it was pretty fantastic – lots of great adventures and even better sunsets. Now bring on the pumpkin spice!
Now that I’ve filled you in on my life – here are a few things from around the web to check out this morning.
