That Perfect Kind of Day

with a cutesy-packaged chocolate bar & venti dirty soy chai by my side - ready for some hard work! //
Brina's lunch at La Madeleine (which I so sneakily stole multiple bites from) //
my lunch from La Madeleine - Chicken Friand + mushroom sauce, bread and jam, coffee //
Starbucks two times in one day - passion tea lemonade [matches my keyboard cover!] - practically sinful.

Hello everyone!
I had one of those perfectly mellow, laid back, yet productive days.
Made a Target run with my mama - that place. That place. It's my nirvana.
Then, settled down at a Starbucks with Brina to write, write, and write some more.
Took a lunch break at La Madeleine - Chicken Friand, I have no words.
Browsed through James Avery very quickly, which inspired a Michael's stop because I was oh-so-inspired to make my own jewelry. But then I realized that I am not one for jewelry-making (fascinating story I just told right there, I know it!), so I went back to my own happy place: explored Barnes & Noble for a bit - flipped through the gorgeous Cupcakes & Cashmere book, and then settled down again.
Wrote, wrote, wrote again.
For a whole day.
I'm in love with the bookstore/cafe atmosphere. I get so inspired, so productive. It must have something to do with being surrounded by millions of inspired words. Cranked out so many pages and ideas. I felt like JK Rowling, on a train - just so many ideas! 
Fell in love with writing again. That hasn't happened in much too long. 
Note to self: back at school, get your butt in the library or the bookstore more often. You will get so much more stuff done.

Over and out. Hope your day was just as lovely!

  8. CAROLINE it's Joan! I love this and you're so cute and stuff! I'm currently at Starbucks sippin' on a passion fruit lemonade and reading and writing so I felt it was only appropriate to holla at another coffee shop lover. And recommendation: grande unsweetened passion fruit lemonade with a pump of raspberry and a splash of orange mango. You feel ridiculous while ordering it but it's worth it.
