I’ve been enjoying a lot of things lately, one of them being sparkling flavored water. It’s been surprisingly easy to give up carbonated drinks, but occasionally do I want something cold, refreshing and bubbly. The great thing about sparkling water is it has zero sodium as opposed to club soda.Â A couple weeks ago I made my own ginger syrup for home made ginger ale (recipe at joythebaker.com). The recipe called for sparkling water or club soda so this one from La Croix happened to be on sale. The one pictured below is berry flavored, but they have all kinds of flavors. It took some time for my taste buds to grow accustomed to it, because it kept expecting the bubbly refreshness to be accompanied by a lot of sugary sweetness. Now I don’t cringe anymore.
I’m also been loving cardigans and cotton dresses. The outfit below has been my favorite so far. It’s a green cotton dress from Old Navy. I would link to it but I don’t see it in their online store anymore (it may have sold out fast because it’s so adorable). You can’t really tell from the photo but there’s eyelet detailing at the hemline of the skirt–very lovely and feminine.
Oh, and food trucks. I’ve been obsessed with food trucks lately. Not really great since I’m trying to lose weight, but the good thing about them is they’re a moving target so they’re not always easily accessible (I may be obsessed with them, but I won’t chase them all over town). If they’re in the neighborhood, however, I will more than likely stop by. Like this one time when I saw the Ssahm BBQ truck, a Korean taco truck, parked in a Walgreens on my way home from work one evening. On the left are 2 pork tacos in corn tortillas and on the right a regular order of their kimchee fries. Deeeeelicious! Especially those Kimchee fries. Definitely not something I would eat every day, but it was a nice treat for a Friday evening!
