Hey lovelies!

     I've been collecting a few images as inspiration for the next couple years (re: life) I have to spend wearing 'professional' clothes. This July I start rotating in hospitals (right after writing the big exam), and I realized I have very few items to wear. Seriously... I'm more of a fashion + casual kinda gal, not a dressy shoes + blazers woman. No choice, now. No choice.
    Annnd, I don't know about you guys, but I'm picky as sh*t when it comes to clothes. I refuse to look boring, but now I also need to walk the fine line of appropriate and too distracting. [Side note: Can you believe this? The only things I have worry about are grades & clothes. I live a good life!]

So tell me, what are your classy go-to pieces?

Recipes That Worked: Moroccan Eggs

Sunday, April 20, 2014
I saw this dish on The Londoner (what's new..) and I decided to try it out last month. I love tomatoes, and eggs, and...who doesn't like chorizo? Seeing Rosie's pictures on her blog just made me salivate over the real thing. Aaaaaand it was pretty simple! You basically simmer this conglomeration of awesomeness on a skillet, and then plop it on the table to dip your bread in. We sliced up a french stick, and toasted it lightly in the oven before eating. This is a great appetizer dish, and you can always adjust the ingredients as you see fit. 
We may or may not have eaten it with some steak wrapped in bacon. I'm just saying. 


The next morning we headed out for a petit walk. Luckily it has gotten a lot warmer since then, and I cannot wait for full-fledged spring. Come onnnnn....

Cheers,
Chantelle


Things I Love Thursday

Thought I'd pop on here to remind myself that there is life outside of books & my apartment.
the fact that evenings are finally light outside * lapis of luxury by essie * consistently getting ENTJ no matter how many times I do the Myers-Briggs test - I feel like it helps refocus me * no longer wearing two pairs of pants * flowers that last two weeks * self heating face masks whaaaaat * deactivating facebook * writing notes in pretty colors* listening to the top ten auditions on X factor (am I that lame? I don't even watch X factor, I just love youtube.) * new ASMR videos * long talks * my little car * discovering a new library * poppin highlighters * being introduced to 'studyspo' on tumblr after one of my academic toolbox links went on fire * red pepper hummus * the sounds of 5am (of course I'm still up) * apartment hunting in chicago * dating someone who can cook! 
[I'm collecting apartment inspo on study breaks, because I'll be getting a bigger space (& roommates)!]

Cheers,
