simply breakfast, wanderlust, pistachios and rainbows

i have a little too much going on right now to be worrying about 30 for 30.. i still will be trying to stay within the limits during everyday life but i'm just feeling to blah and bland to do it on the blog. to take blog photos i need to perfect my makeup, perfect my face, perfect the outfit, it's a little bit of work. i'm a perfectionist when it comes to how you all see me. that might be considered fake, but i present myself on here as more of how i want to be. but me and blog Kat are similar in my eyes.
 i took down my button, and in case kendi sees this feel free to take my name off the list. i went into this with gusto and high expectations but my first few days of february have been a little hectic and chaotic.
i'm really preoccupied with some internal and personal issues right now, and i just don't think i can handle it or be able to post them in a regular fashion. as you can see, i already missed my follow friday yesterday.

i'm feeling so thematic in life right now -- from the themed outfits to just modes and moods. right now, although it's not relevant to the issues mentioned above, i'm pretty obsessed with food. this season has me enjoying rustic and minimalistic things, and right now i'm obsessed with the beauty of foods. is this so odd? today's (yesterday's...) three to follow blogs are centered in some way around food.

i was inspired by them to try some things for breakfast, which for me, is always dull and monotonous, but yummy, but not beautiful or delicious. my new favorite staple i've adapted from simply breakfast is peanut butter on waffles. i'm not sure if it's necessarily healthy, but damn is it good.

there's not much wiggle room for vegans in the world of gourmets, but isn't it just lovely to look at?

She is not just a wonderful cook and she doesn't solely post foodstuffs, but she has her fair share of recipes and foodie shots. She's a lovely eclectic mix of many things -- and he recipes are to die for. Including pancake balls and lavender banana bread muffins.

Maya's was one of the first blogs i followed and read. She doesn't post too regularly, every few weeks or so, but it's always a picture of her breakfast. Maya is a recovering anorexic, too, so it's nice to see how much she has progressed..

Am i the only one who actually likes looking at other people's food? It's just nice.. refreshing even. i live on microwave meals. I really must start cooking more. Can't wait till i'm on my own and am forced to cook - at least then i'll have the motivation!

  8. I've been a vegetarian since I was barely 13, and I keep wanting to try veganism. The pb waffles idea sounds so delicious. I have a weakness for peanut butter.
