OJAI PIXIE TIME!

OJAI PIXIES!
OJAI PIXIES!
OJAI PIXIES!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!

GREEN SMOOTHIE ENVY.

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.

INTO THE GLOSS INSPIRED DECORATED MUSH!

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.

THIS SPRING vs. LAST SPRING.

THIS SPRING! I went to Stowe and explored the area around Moss Glen Falls. Very pretty, but still winter. That’s a real frozen waterfall.

FROZEN WATERFALL.

SEVEN DAYS FREE WILL ASTROLOGY.

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?

MY FAVORITE SWEATER FOR THE NEVER-ENDING WINTER.

image

Gap Luxlight sweater in ANY COLOR! Comes in 8 different shades. (I have three: simply blue, camel heather, and charcoal.) Goes with jeans or a pencil shirt. 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!
