Listening to: In keeping with summer, old Miami Horror and Cut Copy have been on repeat as we drive to the clear azure ocean and drive home with sleepy eyes and salt on our skin.
Currently reading: I’ve been reading quite a few books over the past month, some great, some not so great (ahem, Gone Girl). Of the ones that stand out, Past the Shallows, another novel by Australian writer Favel Parrett, was just beautiful. I’m also currently finishing off The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan, which I thought I would enjoy more than I have, but it’s nevertheless an interesting, albeit harrowing read. If you’re a fellow avid reader and are interested in other books I have read, you can find me on Goodreads.
Admiring: This Rawsome Vegan Life. Filled with endless mouthwatering raw treats and delicious wholesome food, Emily’s blog has quickly become one of my favourites.
Eating: Waffles for days! My boyfriend gifted me a waffle iron for Christmas and we’ve been enjoying my Healthy Waffles for breakfast so often I’ve lost count. Fluffy on the inside, crisp on the outside, and topped with fresh summer fruit and maple syrup. Perfect.
Thinking about: New projects and new recipes. I have some amazing recipes coming soon (hint: a delicious salted caramel dessert) that I’m so excited to share with you.
Generally relishing: My brand new Vitamix. Yes, I finally caved. I’ve been coveting one of these for years, so when my blender broke and I was able to exchange and upgrade to a Vitamix, I couldn’t refuse. Since my purchase I’ve become a blending fanatic. Green smoothies (no more pieces of spinach!), sorbet, hummus, homemade nutella, soup, pesto, smoothie bowls – everything. I get excited just writing this. So if you’ve been thinking about buying a Vitamix but don’t know whether it’s worth it, I can tell you with absolute assurance: it is.
Happy Friday, folks!
