This Week: The Chop, Acai Smoothie Bowls & Jackets From Your Dad's Wardrobe

It is now pretty much the end of my two week Uni break until the second half of the semester begins. For a week of this I've been sick, strapped to my bed and not even been able to do my readings. So tonsillitis wasn't fun, but at least it gave me time to catch up on my YouTube Subscription List and American Horror Story. While I've been at home for most of the holidays, bored and collecting a mountain of tissues, I'm actually kind of excited to go back to Uni and get out in the world.

My first step to doing this was going to The Little Bird Unbakery in Ponsonby. Oh my goodness. I'm in love with the place. The decor was gorgeous from the moment I stepped in, with it's greenery and brick walls, and the food was a winner as well. I had the Acai Bowl which was just really nice and I felt energised and satisfyingly full. It had banana, berry smoothie, their special granola and some kind of coconut yoghurt-like concoction. They claim to be organic, raw and vegan. I've never actually eaten anywhere that's remotely like it, so it was cool to see how the vegans do it. Seeing the vegan substitutes for things like cheese and salmon was intriguing.

That morning it was rather rainy so like you do, I delved into my Dad's wardrobe so see if they'd be any kind of jacket to hoard off the rain. I was pleasantly surprised after finding a navy/black jacket with a brown collar which was pretty warm and shower-proof. It has the perfect amount of oversizedness (yes, that's not a word). It's kind of like buying something from an opshop - here I have a rather nice jacket that I can see myself wearing with everything that I just had to do a little searching for.

I also got a haircut! I'm so pleased with it and I probably should have done it sooner. I got what could be described as a lob with a few shorter bits in the front. Short hair is awesome. I hope you guys have a fab week ahead, hopefully Uni shouldn't be too horrific for me. x
