Spring Time Essentials

Hey everyone,

Today is the day. The first day I felt SPRING IN THE AIR! Oh, I'm so so happy! I drove to the bank, and whilst leaving I pretty much just wanted to sit on the bench outside and hang out with the birds. But ya know, studying + exams. Womp. I will settle for my open balcony door. Below are a few great pieces I found online during breaks between note-taking (woohoo, pathology of the vajayjay). Awkwarrrd. Enjoy the collage - I have lots of different price points in there to tickle everyone's fancy.

Enjoy and please go out and savor that weather!!

Sneak Peak On Life Lately

Thought I'd share a few knick-knacks that have been added to the ol' apartment:

This wonderful tea set has gotten more use than I ever thought it would. Also, it makes your drink of choice look fantastic, and you don't need to remove the bottom platform of your Keurig machine to make coffee. Double win!
  You can pick up the set here (it would make a lovely housewarming gift): shopbop

A fun light pink sequin pillow to add to my growing collection of couch cushions. It was a total steal at Home Goods.

Burning my way through a new favorite candle.

This Keurig (single cup version) has been such a godsend. I know I'm not much of a coffee person, but since my parents bought this for me, I've almost turned into one. Besides, coffee has been found to prevent Alzheimer's. Woohoo!

Daisies = YAY!! Spring is coming!

My parents came for a visit this weekend, and we had so much fun cooking and laughing. Here is my dad setting fire to a homemade sausage, and the rest of us waiting to dig into the migas & potatoes. 

My goal this year is to try and take more pictures with my family & friends. Of course, the self-timer turned out this crazy gem. But...I love it!

Hope you're all doing well!

Cheers,

Recipes That Worked: Shrimp Scampi

Hi everyone,

I thought I would pop in to share another recipe The Boy and I tried a couple months back. I found it on The Luxurious Life, and it looked divine (plus, I was craving seafood that weekend). The shrimp are fantastic, there is no denying it; and the green beans were done in a snap. However, if you're not used to rich foods, this may be difficult to eat in its entirety. We both had to take breaks in order to wipe our plates clean, and next time we make the scampi we are substituting a lot more wine for all that butter. I recommend you give this recipe a whirl, and adjust as needed!


Cheers,

Quick Update

Hi everyone!

I thought I'd pop on since I feel like I haven't been here in a while, and so much has happened! First off, this is my first reading week in Chicago. Boo! I usually go home, or go on vacation (remember my Florida trip last year?), but I've been hunkering down to study for this board exam. So far the weather has been poop, but it's nice and cozy inside. Second of all, my parents came down for a visit! Yayayyaaaaa! We had a ton of fun together, and I picked up a few more things for the apartment and my wardrobe. I will share them with you in an upcoming post. And lastly, I'm in an exercise rut. Nothing has held my interest like dancing and competing did. If you have any suggestions, please shoot them my way. :D

Here are a few cute outfits I saw on tumblr. They're fashionably perfect for clinic. 
Here's a full week of food prep for exam periods. Doing this saves so much time when you're cramming information in the noggin', and eating crappy foods is too tempting. I also make sure it's loaded with veggies and some fish to help my brain work better.
This is pretty much what I see 8-16 hours a day. Double-fisting First Aid for Step 1! My laptop can't even fit on the table with all these books, and I'm still missing quite a few. I need a desk the size of a living room! (This is another reason why I study on the floor a lot, that and I get to lay down and avoid neck strain).

That's all that's happening on my end! 
What are you up to this weekend? 

Cheers,
Chantelle
