Pumpkin Frappucino

Happy Monday!

It has finally occurred to me and my wardrobe that we are officially in Fall!

I am so  sorry that I have not been keeping you all up to date with my Outfits of the Day via Instagram.

Besides having spotty WiFi at work (totally fixed now I hope) , I have been seriously spazzing out lately!

My weekends are just so packed I barely have time to actually relax.

One of my closest friends is getting married in two weeks and just had a bridal shower this past, weekend. OMG, don't I feel old! I am now at the appropriate societal age where you're expected to get married or at least have married friends.

Childhood where are you?!

I also went fabric shopping and spent all of yesterday cutting out patterns.

Fash l Art is less than a month away and I still have so much to do!

Speaking of which, I promised I would share the official cast photo with you, so here it is:

 

That's me, bottom left, green dress, sitting down!

(Now before you ask, no I did not make that, and it's actually a lighter green in person. My friendRia Georgina Additionally, my eyebrows aren't that thick at all)

 

I'm learning so much already in this experience and will try my best to document my journey for you all without giving away too much!

So far, it's been pretty stressful (but not in a bad way).

 

So to de-stress, I concocted this delightful little smoothie!

 

Here's how I got to make this.

Every Sunday morning, I make myself a bowl of cereal.

It's a tradition I had with my dad and I still continue it on my own.

I walked into the kitchen and what did I see?

A pot filled with cubed pumpkin, already boiled!

I knew it was meant for Sunday dinner, but I instantly started plotting.

 

I was originally going to make pancakes, but when the laziness kicked in, I decided on a beverage instead. And let me just say, this drink powered me throughout the day!

So much so, I didn't really leave much for my family.

It's just THAT GOOD!!!!!
