Happy Monday, everyone! If you have noticed, I took a little break last week to get through the overload that is my schoolwork. Dear junior year, freaking chill! But I am back. I have definitely lost track of all the NYFW updates I was planning on giving you this past week. However, I have gone the Plan B route–tomorrow I will be posting a summary of what big trends were seen on the S/S 2015 runways!

Not only has schoolwork taking up a LARGE portion of my time, but we have also been planning a birthday party for two of my roommates that went off without a hitch this past weekend. Ready for the theme? A throwback to the sleepovers of our youth. We decorated with streamers, balloons, banners and even made goodie bags for our guests (complete with gel pens, glow in the dark rings, Ring Pops and Fruit Roll-Ups.) One of my big contributions to this shindig was the nostalgic (read: FREAKING AMAZING) playlist made up of nine hours worth of songs from the ’90s and early 2000s. There was plenty of Spice Girls and Daughtry for everybody.

On Sunday morning we ventured down to South Side and took brunch at Waffles Incaffeinated. OH. MY. GOD. It was probably the most filling and delicious brunch I have ever had. To start, the coffee was great and I should know; I’m kind of a morning coffee connoisseur. Ordering the food was probably the most difficult. There were so many waffles and omelets to choose from.  I ended up with the Funky Monkey waffle loaded with chocolate, peanut butter and bananas. I also made sure to order a side of the home fries per the suggestion of one of my friends. Dear Lord it was incredible! There was plenty of sharing going around at our table. If you are ever in the Pittsburgh area please do yourself the favor of dining at Waffles. The wait can be long though so try to call ahead!
