let’s be real.

This view? Never gets old. Never, ever, ever.

I’ve been considering getting my nose pierced again. It will never happen. And if it did, it would never look as good as this (supermodel) Pinterest inspiration.

This breakfast tasted way better than it looks.

(Spinach omelet + avocado + mascarpone cheese)

Considering my apartment is void of any and all holiday cheer, I’m extremely jealous of Jessi’s Christmas tree.

I started working out again here and there. But it’s not to be healthy, it’s to avoid gaining the “holiday five.”

Yeah, I said it.

And, if we’re really being real, I must say that it almost feels wrong to even blog after a tragedy like yesterday’s occurred. All I can say is that my heart is broken, and my thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved in the Newtown school massacre.

Give it to me straight – what do you need to be real about right now?

    The nose ring definitely looks good on that model, but I think you’d look great with a nose ring! I’ve toyed with the idea of getting a nose ring.

    You could totally rock a little diamond stud! As for what I need to get real about: My health. While I’m not sick, I’m also not as healthy as I can be. I’m starting vitamins, exercising (*OUCH*) and eating better (making variations of a green monster shake). Here’s to a healthier 2013!!!

    I love reading your blog. I just started a couple of weeks ago and I get excited for my move to NYC in 2014 each time I visit here. The view is AMAZING! I need to be real about one thing…. I was affected by the Newtown tragedy. First, I live in Alaska so I’m 4 hours behind NY and I don’t have a TV. So that morning I took my nephew to school at 9am like any other day. When I got to work, I saw all these posts on FB and I was like “what’s going on.” After a quick search, I saw the horrible news. I began crying as I read, watched, and witnessed everything. I was even more aware that my nephew was at school. But what I want to be real about is mental health is an issue. I whole-heartily feel we need to increase mental health services because of tragedies like these.

      Aisha, I couldn’t agree more. I can’t help but crying every time I see the news coverage…it’s absolutely devastating. Something absolutely needs to be done.

      Good luck with your move to NYC! I can’t help but think you’ll love it here 🙂
