Old School Fun

Because I consider myself a connoisseur coaster rider from a very young age, I normally would be bored to tears at Kennywood, an old school amusement park with the highlight of one "big" coaster barely pushing 40 mph.  However going with someone who get's excited by the sea dragon and nervous to go on the baby coaster, makes old school amusement parks as exciting as the first time you went!
Indeed, I had a scaredy cat on my hands.
uhhh ohhhhh..... going up....
There's no better way to reward the little boy for surviving the big coasters, than with a pound of fro-yo covered in sprinkles and Oreo cookies!

TJ'S Review

I love Trader Joes, but with so many different delicious products it's so hard to know what's good and what's not.  So I am always checking out: to fill me in.  He posted about how incredible their chocolate croissants were, and as a chocolate lover, any excuse I can get to eat chocolate for breakfast and I'm in. So off to Trader Joe's I went.
Not to put this lightly, but these are incredible.  If you like the smell of freshly baked soft buttery croissants and decadent dark melted chocolate oozing in the inside, then you will LOVE these.  Trust me, I was abroad for four months and had some really great croissants in my day, and these are nothing short of scrumptious. 
Four come in a pack and it's so easy, all you have to do is leave one of these out over night and let the dough rise, wake up, pop it in the oven for twenty minutes and get your taste buds ready for the easiest tastiest breakfast ever.
If you are still reading this... I highly suggest you stop, leave and go to TJ's asap.

Cut it Out

 Have you ever tried something on, loved it, but realize that your 8p.m. bed time, kind of makes it impossible to wear anywhere?  
That was me, with this maxi cut out dress. 
But as you can tell, the dress got the best of me, jumped in my shopping bag, and forced me to buy it.  
 Luckily though, there was something going on before my grandma nightly habits, that let me get crazy and wear this sexy thing (keep in mind, I normally wear the opposite of anything sexy, so showing tummy is bit wild for me).
Okay okay Euniece, cut it out and stop playing with flowers and 
let's go to the Death Cab concert!

I think I've waited for this concert since middle school and it was so worth it - Below are some of my favorite clips from last night, just click on the link!!

Sweet Summer Water

Things I should do more often:
Wake up when my alarm goes off and not hit snooze for an hour
Read for pleasure 
Write handwritten letters to people
Shop..oh wait...
& Take advantage of fresh summer ingredients 
I can't start all good things at once, so i'll start from the bottom and work my way up.  
Living in Pittsburgh, I am so lucky to have farmers markets at my fingertips day in and day out.  So instead of buying processed juices and bottled waters, I decided to make my own summer water... and let me tell you, it was the best decision I have made yet.  

Summer Water
1 Small Lime 
 1 Large Lemon
 Mint Leaves
 1/2 Large Cucumber
1 Thirsty Mouth
So easy, so refreshing, soooo totally drinking this every day.

Date Night Outfit Problems

What do you do when it's too hot outside to wear jeans but always too cold in restaurants for cute strappy little dresses? You wear a cut out skirt with a casual striped tee, then you're good to go, promise, it's as easy as one, two, three because....

1. You won't look like a crazy person when
 you're outside and everyone is in summer clothes
2. You won't feel like an Eskimo in the restaurant while eating fried alligator. 
(And yes, I did eat fried alligator last night. I know, I'm such a lady). 
3. Date night outfit problem solved!  Thank you to whoever invited this genius skirt.

Having a Great Day

You know that feeling that you get, when you have to throw away your favorite pair of shoes due to wearing them every single day, therefore making them unacceptable to wear in public? Well, before I left Spain, I threw away my favorite pair of flats, very tragic life I live.  
 However, this morning I ran past a sign saying 'Have a Great Day' and indeed I did.  Because when I went to the mall, not only did I stumble upon my favorite flats again, but they were on sale! Happiest girl in the world today.  
I then skipped over to Forever21 which gets me, every. single. time. Seriously, I need to learn to stay away.  Polka dots, chunky necklaces, high low skirts and retro sunglasses.  I want it all.  But unfortunately my bank account won't allow for that. 

What can I say, I'm a sucker for cheap trend.
