well - lets be real here - all the pictures I ever post are from instagram - oops. Do you guys mind? Would you prefer pictures from a digital camera? I just use my iPhone since it is so much easier and convenient PLUS I personally do not mind when other blogs just use instagram pictures! anywhooo - I have been posting so many #instafood pictures that I am starting to feel like a food blogger - sorry I just really like food.
On Monday - I had to put on my best business suit and head to a networking reception for an organization my company just joined - it went pretty well & after I decided to stop by a boutique I had always admired - they had SUCH cute jewelry & I could not pass up this rose gold bracelet with three studs - if you haven't noticed - I have quite the sick obsession with rose gold.

After my reception - I headed to Nordstrom to meet my mom - I had been wanting to return these pair of tory burch flats I had never worn & I ended up picking this bad boy up - it is FLAWLESS. I can't wait to get more!!

After the mall - I picked up some food for me and my mom at Brio - have you guys ever been there? It is a really good Italian restaurant chain (obviously not as good as luciano's) but they have this amazing salad called the Tuscan Harvest Chicken Salad - it has mixed greens, chicken, cranberries, apples, gorgonzola cheese, mushrooms and almonds - dear lord its AMAZEBALLS. & I get it with the red wine vinagrette.
Tuesday after work and some cardio at the gym - I decided to brave Whole Foods - the first one just opened in charlotte about 2 weeks ago and it has been unbearable but the craziness has died down a lot and it is seriously the largest/nicest whole foods I have ever been to! I purchased a lot of goodies - I meant to film a grocery haul but I was so hungry by the time I got home, I didn't even bother lol!
I made this heirloom tomato salad with crumbled goat cheese, some chopped up shallots, olive oil & lots of pepper - oh my god - it was divine.
I have been having a hard time winding down at night and going to bed at an appropriate time - this tea is so wonderful - it is pretty floral but I love it - it is so relaxing!
Yesterday for lunch - my sister suggested the cheesecake factory & I guess I hadn't been there in a long time - they have a full menu that is called the skinnylicious menu - right up my alley!! They offer a variety of appetizers, pizzas, salads, drinks, and entrees all under 600 calories! At 350 calories - these chicken lettuce wraps Mediterranean style were SOOOO good! definitely recommend going to try this menu if you have a cheesecake factory near you!
My hair keeps getting lighter and lighter with every wash - I guess that is what you get for highlighting your hair since you were 17 #fail
So happy today is thursday - going to go to the Greek Festival here in town after work!
