…about brunch. Specifically, brunch beverages. These days my brunch beverage of choice is either hot chocolate or tea because I’ve recently quit coffee. Sob. (You’re like, well this is a boring post Klara). But back when I still lived with my parents, I was way more extravagant. My friends and I came up with the concept of coffee-juice. It’s as basic as it sounds – alongside your smashed avocado, you order a coffee, and you also order a juice. Best of both worlds for those who can’t decide whether they want their brunch beverage to wake them up properly or give them an opportunity to hashtag #drinkclean on Instagram. Coffee-juice was the epitome of brunch-fancy when I went out with my friends. Maybe because nothing screams “I HAVE A FULLY DISPOSABLE INCOME LOLOLOL” like paying $13 for a latte and a fresh-pressed something or other, and alternating your sips from one cup to another. Seriously, we had full-on conversations about how great it was, because #wewere20 and that’s as deep as life got, I guess.
So here’s something I do: whenever I add a new friend on Facebook, I immediately go into my profile and imagine seeing it through their eyes. Every time. Is that weird? Is that something that everyone does? I guess it’s my way of checking out exactly how I’ve been representing myself in recent times? I don’t know.
DO YOU DO IT TOO?
When I comment on a celebrity’s status/photo *cough*HANSON*cough* I also wonder what kind of an idea they’d get of me if they saw my comment, appreciated it, and decided to check my profile. Which obviously never happens. Never, silly Klara. Plus my profile is set to private so even if Taylor Hanson WANTED TO see it, he COULD NOT.
Sucks to be Taylor, I guess.
And just casually, Jackson turned TWO this week. T.W.O. What the what. Dude’s a legit kid now. Not a baby any more. (It’s officially been a year since I made these hilarious cupcake toppers for his first birthday). The other day I put him in shorts for the first time in months and HE HAS LEGS. He has these long, non-chubby legs that have just shot out beneath him. He’s actually still wearing the same shorts he wore this time last year because his waist has not even grown by 1cm, I swear, but last year these shorts were all hanging somewhere between his knees and his ankles, and this year they’re little shorty shorts on him! Absurd.
I’ve become the cliche Mum shaking her head and exclaiming “That’s just NUTS. Where’s my BABY gone!?”
Well, I can tell you where the best links of the week have gone. Right here, my friend!
First, everybody needs this coin in the freezer trick in their life. I’m serious, this is next-level life hacking right here. (You’re like, I already do this Klara. Move on with your life.)
This 6am tomato sauce appeals to me 40% because the sauce looks BEAUTIFUL and 60% because I love the sound of her slow, creative mornings. I feel like this would be me if I didn’t have a two-year-old beating me to the early wake-up every single morning.
Can we all just agree that a salty caramel yogurt shake is exactly what everyone needs now that the weather is warming up!?!
Living vicariously through Helene’s awesome list of 5 things you must do every time you travel.
But like, please tell me if you do the Facebook profile checking thing. Please. And also tell me – have you coffee-juiced? Was I onto something? Should I have patented?
PS Would you even notice if I re-used teacup photos occasionally? Because I’ll be honest: styling, photographing and editing those bad boys is like the worst part of my week. LOL.
