I feel like the first week or so of a new year can really set the tone for the year ahead (unless you have a crappy week, in which case pay no attention to me). So I was wondering…what should I do to kick off my 2016?
Go out for brunch.
I’m officially declaring myself a member of the Melbourne cafe culture because going out for brunch is honestly one of my favourite things to do. In the hopes of continuing that trend, I’ve been out for brunch almost every day on this first week of January and that’s not excessive in the slightest to me, it’s more like a dream come true. There’s just something about someone else cooking and cleaning for me that can’t be topped, not to mention the food I make at home isn’t presented nearly as nicely!
Feast your eyes upon these, can we all just take a moment to admire this stack of buttermilk hotcakes? I would eat them through the screen if I could, I mean look at them! This particular stack of heaven on a plate hotcakes were from a local cafe that’s a firm favourite of mine, they’re topped with homemade raspberry jam and lemon curd and they tasted as good as they look. Reigning in 2016 with hotcakes is pretty much my idea of perfection- can you tell I’m a foodie?
On this particular day it was fairly overcast (apparently Melbourne hasn’t quite gotten the memo that it’s summer) so I went for my trusty dark wash denim shorts paired with this Urban Outfitters top that’s patterned but simple. I actually wore this top on my 21st birthday in Hawaii and ever since then I feel like I get good vibes whenever I wear it, good Hawaiian birthday vibes. I paired it all with black boots to combat the lack of sun and called it a day.
So far I’ve been loving 2016 and you know it may just be the delayed sugar high from the hotcakes talking, but I feel like this is going to be a great year. Who’s with me?
