Week through my iPhone

Ever notice how everyone always apologizes for ‘crappy’ iPhone photos? Ummmmm, crappy? Maybe it’s just because I came from an Android with a lame camera, but I love the iPhone 5 camera. Sure, it’s not like a DSLR but it takes gorgeous photos for a smartphone and who wants to drag around a huge camera everywhere? I know I take a lot more photos now that I have a nice phone.

So here’s some highlights of my past week, as seen through my iPhone lens.

My work outfit on Saturday. I love the pink+brown combo.

I’m getting back into taking outfit selfies when I’m wearing something I feel cute in. This was my work outfit on Saturday and I only regretted it when I stopped by the farmer’s market after work and it started pouring. Sheer shirts+rain don’t exactly mix.

I don’t have time for elaborate meals anymore, so my “dinners” are usually thrown together things like snackplates or this sweet potato hash. This tastes incredible, but is really simple. I take a sweet potato, remove the skin, chop it up small in a food processor and blend it with sea salt, garlic powder, nooch and cayenne pepper. Then I throw it in a pan with coconut oil, spinach and hemp ‘tofu’. Then I toss it in a bowl and serve it with raw seeds and local hummus. I don’t even know how it’s so good, but it is.

I haven’t talked about it much yet, but I’ve started running in the past month. I just love living so close to an awesome running trail right by the river. I’ve been doing a walk-run approach because I’m still working up to running consistently, but I love it. My Achilles’ was also injured for about a week but buying actual running shoes has helped. I ran my first unofficial 5K on Monday and I’m so excited for my running future. I can finally run about 10-12 minutes at a time with no walking breaks!

My huge produce haul from Whole Foods.

In the summer I spend SO much on produce. Like, this was literally half of what I spent at Whole Foods this weekend. I’m basically obsessed with watermelon, fresh berries, lettuce and cauliflower at the moment. All devoured straight from the fridge. That yellow ball up front is a new melon I spotted called a Fonzy melon. It’s really soft and sweet, like a subtle cross between honey and vanilla.

I have a thing for jumpsuits now.

I have a thing for jumpsuits now.

I’m getting more adventurous with my fashion choices and I don’t hate it. I never thought I could pull off a jumpsuit, but it helps that I found one that doesn’t drown me and has some cute ruffly details to add some interest. The fact that this was $13 at American Eagle is even better. Now I want #allthejumpsuits.

This deliciousness was consumed within 15 minutes.

I stopped at a cute little juice bar near the outdoor shopping center where I got my jumpsuit. I’ve been dying for some fresh juice/smoothies since it’s been so hot and humid here. I got the “Summer Love”, which has blueberries, grapes, pineapple, peaches, dates, vanilla, chia seeds and coconut water. Basically all of my favorite things. It was kind of a cross between a fresh-pressed juice and a smoothie with a thicker texture and I loved it. I can see myself making more stops here in the future. The fact that it’s less than a 10 minute drive from work sweetens the deal.

What’s been going on in your life lately?

  1. That jumpsuit is so fun! I love experimenting with fashion. I’ve been trying to save money as much as possible so I haven’t been shopping in…months? I’m having withdrawals!

    And that smoothie looks delicious. (:

    • I need some of your discipline when it comes to shopping! I’ve been buying a couple things here or there every month but I’ve been mostly keeping within my budget. My problem is now that I have a job and a regular income, I feel like I need to make up for all the times I had no money!

    • Thank you! I have heard that about the older iPhones — I only just got on the iPhone train a few months ago and love mine so far but I’m sure I’ll want the new iPhone 6 when it comes out!

    • Awww thanks! I’m actually really surprised it works on me — I always thought they were a tall girl ‘thing’. Maybe I need to reconsider some of my other fashion no-nos…

  2. That jumpsuit is adorable! Blah, I wish I could shop. Haha, I think we’ve discussed this already. iPhones don’t take the best pictures (I’m definitely a DSLR girl) but they aren’t awful. I mean, compare them to cameras from like 50 years ago and they’re like amazing.

    • Haha and I really need to STOP shopping! Okay, I pretty much only buy stuff on clearance, but still.

      I would love a DSLR, but they also kinda scare me. I’m usually really careful with my electronics but I know I’d have a klutzy moment and drop it.
