Foodie Friday

Yummy & Simple Taco Chili  

Sometimes work can literally suck the life out of me, and having to make dinner at the end of my shift is the last thing on my mind. So, when I see a simple meal full of flavor, I jump right on the opportunity to make it. This taco chili was a recipe I picked up at Publix and all it took was all you see above and 1lb of ground beef or turkey and a packet of taco seasoning of your choice. 

  1. Preheat large. nonstick saute pan on medium-high for 2-3 min and throw the meat to brown until you see no more red. 
  2. Once browned, pour out the fat
  3. You can either put the meat into a slow cooker with the remainder of the ingredients for (3-4 hrs) or let simmer in a deep pot for an hour. I chose the deep pot, which I also brown the meat in, so I don't have to clean more than one pot. Lazy? I think working smarter. 
You can add whatever toppings: Sour cream, cheese, cilantro etc.



The 1st of November

It was just yesterday I was writing my post saying it was 2015, and now were in November. 

Today, my mini vacation ends and so does my lazy streak! Now to start this "fall back" mindset right with the following fall staples.

 I finally got a pumpkin to carve, which will be thanksgiving themed since halloween is over. 

I haven't been forgetting to get my PSL, so I'm looking good there. 

And today I made chili, how much "fall happy" can I be. 

Below, I share my fashionable Halloween as Chanel Oberline from Scream Queens

The fact that it's 2015 is mind boggling. As I get older the years are just flying by. Im sure we all feel like that, but Alex and I have lived in our apartment for a year and it feels as if we just moved in and now we are moving again! I'm such a believer on new everything that moving into another new place seems like a reoccurring event. Even though Im thinking that our new place is going to be a keeper for years to come. As with any new year we create our new years resolutions and mine are as follows:
I hope to become more of a productive morning person and not waste the days on sleep. I for sure want to learn Italian or French and visit Paris. I also want to join a club or do some kind of active activity like dance. AND lastly, I want to use my money towards travel than on material things. (which i find is going to be the hardest to keep)

Words to live by: Don't waste your youth on mundane activities, live life to the fullest and try new things! 

P.S I've had this sequin dress in my closet for over 5 years, and I have never worn it. There could be many reasons why I didn't, but on this new years it seemed so fitting to wear. 




When I think of a day spent in Wynwood, I think of a day wandering the streets of New York.  There's always something new to try and see. With Basel, you see new art appearing right before your eyes. There were artist everywhere creating art on any canvas they can find. With the last photo, I can't wait to go back and see the end result. 


Flashback Friday

It's always appropriate to post a flashback Friday when you have no new photos to post. I've been sitting on these photos for a while now and I always loved the shots of me in my favorite jeans and perfect striped shirt, which is my all time favorite thrifted find. It's outfits like this that remind me its all about good basics.

It's also appropriate when I want to talk about how much I miss my long hair. It's when you go through past photos that makes you miss the things you once had. Even though I don't have any regrets on cutting it, I just miss having the ability to do pretty braids and perfect buns.

Happy Friday!
