A quick breakfast before yoga this morning – Ojai Pixies and a Balance Bar. It’s Ojai Pixie time at City Market, a short but sweet citrus spree for me. I eat like 8 of these a day for as long as I can! Teeny tiny but super juicy and sweet. If you see them at your store, TRY THEM!
I was down at Mindi & Tom’s this weekend and they recently bought a new toy: a Blendtec blender. Our morning green smoothies included about ten ingredients that my blender could never pulverize. OMG. Blender envy.
I forgot how much I love the music in Donnie Darko….

Breakfast today was some Into The Gloss-inspired decorated mush: chia seeds, oats, and goji berries soaked overnight in almond milk with a dash of cinnamon, honey, and vanilla extract. Topped with ground flax, more cinnamon, peanut butter, and banana.
I’ve been on an eggs kick for breakfast, but this is a refreshing change. It’s also SUPER quick because it soaks overnight.
Every Wednesday afternoon, we get the new Seven Days delivered to our building; and every week, I immediately read my horoscope. I’m not a huuuuuge believer in Astrology (although I think every Leo I’ve met has the sunniest personality, I shouldn’t date Virgo’s, and I’m very much like a Libra description: INDECISIVE…ha!!), but I do love me some Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology. It’s the best. Last week, Rob told me to eat a peach and this week’s message is don’t rely on meaningless bullsh*t. I love Rob’s cryptic/weird/yet fun weekly messages. Do you read your horoscope?

Light weight but not so sheer that I need to wear a cami underneath. Machine washable. Aaaaand it’s only $39.95, plus Gap is always having some additional sale. Even if you’re not living in a place with an eternal winter, you’ll love this sweater. You’re welcome!
