Out & About, Instagram Style: July!

It's been a while since I posted a little Instagram roundup and I thought I'd make it a monthly thing around here! In the past month alone I've been to Chicago, Dallas, and San Francisco, and I've Instagrammed my heart out on the way. Hands down, this is my favorite app!

Lately I've stepped up the visits to Home Goods in search of... um, goods for the home :) I've scored some amazing furniture (I promise to show you soon!) but the real find may have been this sassy little sign:

At my cousin's engagement party last week, the caterer brought out a whole tray of these little baby rainbow sprinkle bundt cakes! I've never seen them before - have you?

Speaking of wedding related parties, here is a cute picture of Allison, Alexandra, Nicole and me from Alex's bridal shower! I wore my mint green Baublebar necklace, ate French fries, and played wedding games - a truly blissful morning.

While cleaning out a drawer yesterday I found these two little magnets that I remember buying in high school. Sooooooo basically nothing has changed in ten years.

Here's the easiest and most delicious dessert to eat when it's hot outside: roasted figs. Amazing with vanilla ice cream but I never make it that far - I eat them straight from the oven! I roast mine with a little truffle oil in a glass dish at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes and cover them in black Hawaiian salt as soon as they come out of the oven. DELISH.

A few weeks ago Ram and I spent a glorious day laying by the pool in my backyard for like five hours straight. I happily read issues of US Magazine, Lucky, and Allure while sitting on the edge of the pool dangling my feet in the fountain. No better way to spend a summer afternoon - and I got tan to boot!

I can't go a week without going to my favorite sushi restaurant, Kushiyu, and the first thing I always ask for is an order of these spicy tuna biscuits. Grilled rice, spicy tuna, creamy avocado, green onions, and a little smelt eggs... my mouth is watering while I type, I swear.

And finally, a true gem. I kinda want to have this printed on a shirt. Or a poster. Or maybe on little cards that I carry around and hand out to strangers:
