My favorite thing to do on Pinterest is browse photos of gorgeous homes. I'm generally a sucker for saturated hues and plenty of bright, natural light. I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to have multiple kitchens and living rooms so that I can live out all my interior decor dreams, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

The Better Chilled Chia Oatmeal with Mango

Chilled Chia Oatmeal With Mango 
Now that the weather is finally warming up, I no longer feel the desire to start my mornings with a hot breakfast. A small bowl of oatmeal and a yogurt is generally my meal of choice in the mornings, especially when I'm running off to an early class (8:40 enviro sci—ew). But spring has sprung here in the city, and my breakfast preference has now shifted to a chilled oatmeal that is even simpler than a warm one.
Step 1 and 2 Step 3 and 4 Step 5 and 6 Step 7 and 8 all done
I prepare a few of these in advance every week because they are great for grab and go situations, and it helps me avoid skipping the most important meal of the day. After all, there is a reason every mom is a drill sergeant about  not skipping breakfast. Learning how toxic waste travels through soil is rough enough. Doing it on an empty stomach? Not gonna happen.

Styled With Lauren: A Better Fashion Post Inspired by Audrey

Styled With Lauren 
GUESS WHO'S BACK! It's Lauren, it's Lauren! Today's post is about her modern Audrey inspired look. Though it may be springtime, black is acceptable year round here. It is the unofficial color of The City: black coffee, black clothes, black puddles when rain mixes with the grime of the street. New Yorkers like black because it looks chic and has the added benefit of hiding all the dirt that you accumulate while traversing through town (if you've been in a subway station, you know what I mean).
