Raw Style: Blueberry Hemp Milk



The other day I came home to a package with 4 beautiful milk bottles in it and a lovely note from the kind person who sent them to me (because they appreciated my Raw Almond Milk post). Sadly, I couldn't read the signature and the label I had set on the counter to send a thankyouthankyouthankyou note to was thrown out by accident by my boyfriend. Silly boyfriend. I am touched and grateful for the generosity of this kind person and since I have no way to reach them, I must post my new favorite beverage using one of these lovely bottles. Please contact me if you see this post!

I had been feeling sluggish and “brittle” sometimes during my workouts this spring, so in June I ordered Brendan Brazier’s Vegan Nutrition Guide. I have to say that for me, this book has made an incredible difference. I have been boxing training all summer and the strength and stamina I have has greatly improved. I am now a Hemp fanatic. I have been using plain hemp milk all summer on my homemade cereals and yesterday I had a lovely box of blueberries in the fridge from the Pilsen Community Market so I thought, “Hey, I bet this is yummy with hemp milk.” I had the berries, the seeds and the beautiful bottle to store it in. Voilà! A new post for you and a proper thank you to my new friend who helped me showcase my new creation.

It is Beautiful Here: Video II

My love has been writing so many incredible songs lately. Powerful, lovely music is swirling around constantly. I just had to make him a treat today. So now I officially have a second video to add to my “it is beautiful here™” series.

Home: Summer

I redesigned my office in July. Of course, I had to color coordinate my books on my new fancy bookshelf.



Creating a comfy space to live is important to me.



I love my home.

The Polaroid Project: Old Skool

It’s fun what you find when you purge your closets.



Pieces of a Senior project that helped me get a great job in Chicago.



Thank you Polaroid.
