After a fruitless search for matcha cafes to grab a quick sip before dinner, my cousin, brother, and I stumbled upon Hanamizuki Cafe. The venue itself is beautifully decorated; distressed furniture, menus on chalkboards, murals and wall art interspersed with greenery and succulents all made for a wonderful atmosphere. The restaurant is on the smaller side with regard to seating, with tables that sit only 2-4 at a time. However, there are high-top chairs with bar seating on the side of the cafe.
Happy National Women Physician Day! Today marks the birthday of Elizabeth Blackwell, the United States’ first woman physician. In 1849, Blackwell was accepted into medical school as a joke. While we have made great strides since then, the fight for equality still goes on. Read further to learn more about an amazing physician-to-be, my friend Tammarah.
I hope you had a wonderful and restful break filled and lots of quality time with your friends and family. I hope you also had some equally as important “me time,” a large component of which involves actually taking care of yourself. For medical students especially, self-care often falls to the bottom of our priority lists. However, it’s imperative that you make sure you’re carving out at least a few minutes a day for yourself.
One thing that I am trying to get serious about is a better morning routine. My friends know that I am pretty lazy and have a hard time getting out of bed. The inevitable rush leads to quick shower, some hair product to tame the mane, and maybe some lotion if I’m lucky. With January in full-blown winter mode + a v timely Christmas gift from Anthony, I consider myself a lucky guy!
Ever since joining Equinox and becoming that guy, Ant’s been obsessed with Kiehl’s. I saw it all over IG but wasn’t sure what the hype was about. I am now a fan. This post is NOT sponsored, I just want to show you some cool stuff!
The “Jeremyville – Healthy Skin for Him” Collection, which is pretty affordable for $26 at Nordstrom, comes in a cool box designed by Brooklyn-based artist, Jeremyville.
A dilemma that I’m sure has plagued many a college student: It’s the last week of break and you barely have anything in the fridge. You also don’t want to buy any groceries because you’ll be home soon and it won’t be worth it. What is a poor soul like you going to do? What you’re going to do is put down the menu of that pizza place and keep driving past Chipotle because today you’re going to learnhow to adult.
The reason that I wanted to start a style blog in the first place was my love for thrifting. It became a hobby of mine when I started college and has been close to my heart ever since. This post has been a long time coming! Most of my friends know that I have a tendency to find ridiculously awesome pieces while thrifting, some of which I’ve already shared on my Instagram, while others have yet to make an appearance. Although I hand out ideas here and there, I have yet to compile my secrets for finding a great deal. Thanks to all of your pestering, I’m about to spill some piping hot tea, the first in a series of guides if you’re lucky.
Had brunch at The Dandelion Pub yesterday and it was fantastic! A member of the Stephen Starr restaurants (which includes on of my favorites, Talula’s Garden) is a British pub nestled in the heart of Philadelphia.
I’m writing to you from my new apartment! Minus living essentials like floor lamps, a dining set, and anything to sit on or store clothes in, I guess you can say that I’m full-fledged adult now. I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog with a personal post, but I especially wanted to reach out to my fellow medical students with this one.
I think I’m still having a hard time adjusting to M2 year. I’m still grappling with the notion that others look up to me as a role model and ask me for advice when I’m just trying to do the right thing for me. It’s scary, it’s intimidating, but it’s inevitable. The “sophomore” year of any point in your education is tough. You’re no longer the baby, but you’re also asked to grow up quickly.
Hey everyone, I have some really exciting news! I’m partnering with JORD Watches for their fall campaign!
I started my Instagram and this blog a few years ago simply as a creative outlet to counter the rigor and demands of medical school. Never did I think that I’d have the opportunity to be working with a company in this capacity!
Even though this post is sponsored by JORD Wood Watches, I only want to work with brands whose products I admire and respect. I’ve seen JORD’s timepieces here and there and secretly had my eye on one for a while… and now I can say I’m a proud owner of a piece from the Frankie series! It’s perfect for the fall and every OOTD you can think of.
If you’d like to get your hands on one, I’m also including a giveaway link (click here to enter)! Winners get $75 off their watch, and everyone gets $20 off just for signing up! The contest will close November 27th at 11:59pm. Both the $75 and the $20 codes will expire on January 1st, 2017.
Being a huge advocate of the #TreatYoSelf movement, I would highly encourage you to look at their collection, especially since the holidays are rolling around. Who knows, I might even treat myself to another one once I finish Step 1 😉 Positive reinforcement.
