Pieces of April | Monthly Round-Up

Athleisure is a thing and I am all for it.

Time to start a new show? Tempting. Especially after listening to this. 

I discovered so many good songs this month that I had to create a playlist.

Mother's Day prezzie.

Bringing my pom game.

My very first adult cookbook. I remember seeing it in the bookstore a year ago and thinking how pretty the pages were and now I've finally got myself a copy.

It's sick and twisted and just so happens to be the only show that I'm caught up on.

Sunday Eats #3

A quiet Sunday to myself called for some yummy homemade dishes.

Breakfast - 11:30 AM
Because I never wake up early enough on weekdays to have a proper breakfast, I always look forward to fixing myself a big one on weekend mornings. Breakfast was oatmeal with vanilla almond milk, cocoa powder, topped with blueberries, sliced bananas, kiwis, and peanut butter. I loved the way the creamy peanut butter melted into the warm oats.

Snack - 1:40 PM
Vanilla & cream yogurt from Trader Joe's and homemade chocolate banana muffin. The muffin is oil-free and sugar-free. I used applesauce and honey as substitutes. 

Lunch - 4:15 PM
I had leftover veggie (mixed peppers and zucchini) red thai curry and quinoa from last night. I made a quinoa version of fried rice except it's with veggie curry. I also made baked avocado fries for the first time. 

Dinner - 8:00 PM
I was craving for comfort Chinese food, so I made Mapo tofu and had it with Asian-style noodles. I ate the last of the cucumber slices topped with avocado and salmon left over from last night's dinner. 

Dessert - 8:40 PM
I'm not vegan, but curiosity gets the best of me so I'm always trying dairy-free options. This time, I tried the So Delicious ice cream in Mocha Fudge Almond and topped it with sliced bananas. The ice cream tasted pretty close to the real thing and I wouldn't mind getting it again.

Do you like trying vegan options?

Spring Outfits | VIDEO

Now that spring has officially arrived, spoiling us west coasters with beautiful sunny weather and cool breeze, I can swap the sweaters and fleece leggings for flowy tops and short shorts. Whilst doing some light spring cleaning over the past weekend, I noticed that I've collected quite a decent number of new pieces for the warmer months. After all I did start my spring shopping early in the beginning of February. Here are 7 outfits for which I will be wearing this season.

Things must go out to make room for new things that come in. That's why I'm a strong believer in cleaning out the closet every 2-3 months and either donating or recycling the unwanted garments. Aside from donating the clothes to your local Salvation Army or Goodwill, below are two sites that I've used before that gladly take unwanted clothing:

H&M Conscious
