Me and Ava at Industry Public House
Reading: I saw someone post this article to Facebook, and fell for the click bait title. But seriously, it's a must read. The little words of wisdom are so true and inspiring. I love little things that make you appreciate life and put things into perspective. My favorites are #4, 6, 8, and 19.
Eating: I'm still on my no-carb kick but have been a little less strict and indulging here and there with things like sushi. I've hit the month mark and I feel SO much better. Not only am I thinner but more awake and alert. I am going to continue as long as possible because I really don't see it as a burden to my lifestyle at all! I will have a chicken recipe up next week that has been my favorite yet!
Wearing: I finally settled on a pair of neutral shoes for the warmer weather (see my shoe roundup here). I went with these and these. I think they'll be perfect for some upcoming warm weather trips I have on deck! I've also been enjoying not having to wear tights with skirts and dresses because the temperatures have been so warm lately!
Pittsburgh-ing: I went to Chaz and Odette with some friends on Friday night. It's in a cozy building right on Baum Blvd. in Shadyside and was featured in Zagat. The atmosphere is pretty and inviting, but that's where my compliments end. I hate to be negative, but we were entirely underwhelmed! The place was pretty empty yet the service was slow. They only had a handful of wines to choose from, so we opted for cocktails. It took so long to get our cocktails (both times we ordered them) and the bar was located just behind our table! The food was good, but nothing to write home about. I can't say I'll be back anytime soon.
Listening: This mashup of Adele's Hello and Mozart's Lacrimosa might be one of the best things EVER. It's a must listen and a must watch, too! The cinematography and production are almost as beautiful as the song itself! Also, my February Spotify playlist is live. You can view it here if you don't have Spotify! And lastly, is anyone else obsessed with Zayn's song, Pillow Talk? I'm embarrassed to admit that I really like it. I was never a huge Zayn fan (#TeamHarry4Ever) but he's growing on me! The video is weird, though, but Gigi is gorgeous nonetheless!!
Hermes perfume bottle? It's refillable. It's probably about the most inexpensive thing from Hermes, ever (under $100).
Quote-ing: I've been pinning a lot of quotes lately, you can find them all, here. 'Maybe it won't work out. But maybe seeing if it does will be the best adventure ever.'
