The festivities of the 4th are over so now it’s back to real life. Who am I kidding, summer isn’t real life, at least if you’re still a student! I still have about a month left at my internship but the majority of my weeks are spent doing whatever I want. I’m definitely appreciating that I can still do that–in a couple years, that won’t be an option!
Favorite App: LabelBox
I’ve been noticing cute little labels popping up on a lot of people’s Instagram photos so I had to do a little sleuthing to figure out how they were doing this. Turns out, it’s a simple and free app called LabelBox. It’s available for iPhones/iPods and Androids and it’s so easy to use. Basically all my Instagram photos will be labeled now. #Sorryimnotsorry
Favorite Obsession: Waffles
I almost can’t remember the last time I didn’t have a waffle for breakfast! And don’t be fooled, these homemade waffles are 100 times healthier and tastier than those pathetic frozen Eggo waffles. I’ve been loving on the protein waffles mostly but when I just want a simple, fruit-packed waffle like the one above, I just use some oat flour, which gives it a perfectly fluffy texture while also packing it with fiber. And toppings are necessary, of course. I topped my 4th of July waffle with fresh raspberries and protein frosting made with Vega vanilla almondilla protein powder and water. Mmmmmmm!
Favorite New Find (that I haven’t found yet): So Delicious Greek-style almond milk yogurt
The Amande almond milk yogurts are decent, but a little too jiggly and low in protein for my liking. When I popped on over to the So Delicious website and saw this gem, I knew I had to have it ASAP! The only thing I somewhat miss from my non-vegan days is Greek yogurt, and now I can get my fix in nondairy form, with more fiber and calcium than the dairy version! I just need to find it in stores first…
Favorite 4th of July Activity: Water balloon wars
What do you do on the 4th when it’s hotter than an oven outside and inside, the parade your family was planning on going to was cancelled and there are no fireworks shows within 100 miles? Have a water balloon war, of course! Filling up countless water balloons was worth the fun we had and it was actually great getting water in your face when you didn’t catch a balloon. Not that that happened to me though 😉
What’s something fun you did on the 4th (whether you’re from the U.S. or not!)? What’s your favorite app?

ok I need that label box, checking it out now! thanks for that.
I think you’ll love it, it’s so fun to use!
I keep seeing the cute labels on everyone’s instagram pictures as well! I need to download that app asap.
I’ve been searching everywhere for the So Delicious almond milk yogurt! I have yet to find it in any stores near me. It looks and sounds sooo amazing though- and has more protein than their coconut milk yogurts (which I love too!)
And I played with water balloons on the 4th too! I felt like a little kid again. I loved it. (:
Glad you had fun too! I want to do water balloons again this weekend 😀
I want to have a water balloon war! I am so doing that this week since it’s finally sunny here. I love waffles, and they have to be homemade. I hate the frozen kind. I wish I had a waffle maker. I’ll have to remedy that soon.
I can’t remember where I got my waffle maker from, but I know Target has a bunch and they even have a waffle stick maker!
Going to Target today. 🙂
Aaaah,I need to get that app! Thank you for mentioning it,I never knew it was THAT easy to get labels,haha 😀
Water balloon wars sound so fun,too – I’m glad you’re having a good time at home,really. You deserve it!
It is sooooo easy, and so addicting! I think I’m gonna be using it on almost all my photos now 😉
Thanks for the heads up on the app Ashley! I am soo out of the loop with cool stuff like this… I always need to talk to you about anything fashion related, that is for sure girl! Water balloon fights?! Heck yes to that! I am going to do that with the kids I babysit for next week! Ahh how fun, can’t wait 🙂 I am also so glad to hear home has been treating you well… you deserve it to say the very least dear! Enjoy your weekend 🙂
Ahhhh thanks girlie! Water balloon fights are the best, hope you have a great time when you do it!
Favorite app would definitely be instagram! I used to love water balloon fights!! I haven’t had one in forever. I think that needs to change! Glad you had a great 4th 🙂
I love Instagram too, the filters and everything are just so cool!
You are quite the fashionista!! Love your outfit in the first picture 🙂
Awww thanks! That’s one of my favorite outfits ever!
Enjoy your laid back summer! Since my internship is in NYC and I don’t get to live at home, I have to have a job in addition to it – so I worked all 4th (and I work all weekends). I’m kind of ready for the internship to be over so that I can catch my breath!
I am definitely enjoying it while I can! It’s exciting that you have an internship in NYC but I can see where it would get overwhelming having little free time!
Well first, I’m glad I found your blog. You had me when you said “Summer isn’t real life”. No, no it’s not and I love it. I manage a pool so that is what I was doing on the fourth…I did do a road race that was pretty fun. Hope you had a fabulous weekend girlie and can’t wait to read more!
I’m so glad you found me and thanks for reading! Haha, and that’s exactly why I love summer too, because it’s so much not like real life.
