june + july, on instagram

Some of the food I ate recently, getting in touch with my inner foodie! I'm trying to eat a little healthier with more salads. I've also been drinking a lot of tea recently, the one pictured is cold steeped strawberry rhubarb parfait from David's Tea.

Speaking of trying to eat healthier, I can't. Because there's an ice cream cart across the street from where I work, and one of my coworkers, Big Wei (we have two people named Wei - Big Wei is a tall guy and Little Wei is a tiny girl, haha), spoils everyone by treating us once in a while. Big Wei also made us fried ice cream today! :9

I don't get why chocolate covered strawberries are so flippin' expensive when it's very easy to make! Wash and dry your strawberries thoroughly, melt some chocolate (I did it the lazy way in the microwave, 15-30 second intervals and stirring after each time), dip, and refrigerate for 15 or 20 minutes. Easy and (somewhat) healthy dessert!

Air travel can get very tiring, but the view from the airplane is always pretty. I went to visit my boyfriend in Canada sometime in June. Long distance sucks, but it's worth it!

fractal design define r4 with window / lazy galaxy nails

I upgraded my tower case! It's a Fractal Design Define R4, with the side window I always wanted (even though I don't keep my tower at a place where I can look at the inside). It's also super quiet, and I sometimes even forget that I had my computer on if I leave the room for a while. The only issue I have with it is that the back fan rattles just a little bit sometimes, but I think it's fixable if I weren't so lazy with doing so.

Again with the laziness, having a galaxy accent nail because I can't be bothered to do all ten of my fingers. I work as a barista so I have to wash my hands a lot - sadly, nail polish usually lasts 2 or 3 days before it starts to chip or peel.

stormtrooper keychain at the lego store, yeah!

Ending the post with this little guy that I got at the Lego store with Jessie, my coworker. We were the only ones there that didn't have kids, but there's no shame in that!

Until next post,


  1. all the food looks yummy!!! I have a problem with wanting to eat I've cream all the time too lol!

  2. I agree with you about chocolate coated strawberries - definitely something that's easy to make at home for a fraction of the cost. And super delish too! :)

  3. It was! Someone get the ice cream away from us, haha~

  4. Chocolate coated cherries are pretty tasty too!

  5. This galaxy accent nail is sooo pretty! Love it!


  6. hehe, thank you! :)
