Food Porn and Shoe Shots

I hate goodbyes. I mean, I guess I don’t know anyone who particularly likes them, but I realized how strongly I dislike them this week as I left my winter internship and job. I had such an amazing experience and enjoyed my time off from school. My only complaint: it flew by way too fast! I cannot believe in a matter of days I’m starting the spring semester of my senior year. The good news: I don’t have to say goodbye to Manhattan anytime soon. I’ll be there twice a week until May, interning at another magazine! Yay! I can’t wait to get started.

Anyway, here’s a look at my week through Instagram. Random but pretty. One of the most important lessons I learned about living in New York is the importance of comfortable chic. Slouchy sweater, skinny jeans and oxford slip-ons make for a cute, but practical-for-walking work outfit!

Daily lunch: spinach salad with avocado, grilled chicken, veggies and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. 

Tuesday morning I had the privilege of attending an Activia event on FITNESS’ behalf to learn about the importance of probiotics in your diet. The three course breakfast was divine and absolutely gorgeous, thanks to pastry chef and Bravo’s Top Chef Just Dessert judge, Johnny Iuzzini.

Check out the almond encrusted french toast. Simply out of this world! The crunchy coating had a gooey inside and a cut out middle filled with yogurt, berries and fresh herbs. Can it get much better than that?

Panna Cotta at 10 a.m.? Why not? You only live once.

I’m on a pretzel/chocolate kick, especially when it comes to gifts. Post to come on the Valentine’s Day-themed treats I made for everyone at my internship! Aren’t they pretty? 

Last but certainly not least, my newest purchase: Michael Kors booties. I’m obsessed. Warm, comfortable and oh so cute! Sorry for slacking on recipe posts. I haven’t been too creative in the kitchen lately… 

Sprinkled with Love,
Lauren

  1. Those treats are delicious. Just seeing a picture makes me want more 🙂

  2. Lauren I HAVE to know where you bought those oxfords! I have been searching high and low for the perfect pair and those are it – I love them! 🙂 (And I’m REALLY excited to see the recipe for the Valentine’s Chocolate Pretzels!)

    • Thank youuuU!!!! I’ve been loving them 🙂 The oxfords are, believe it or not, from Kohls LC (Lauren Conrad). Orignially $56 but I got them for $14 right after Christmas! SUCH a steal and I will honestly get my money’s worth of them…and then some! Putting together the Valentine’s Chocolate Pretzel post right now! Thanks for the comment 🙂

  3. All the food there looks fancier than anything I’ve ever had. I’m not much of a foodie it seems. :/
