MDIP – Fun While It Lasts

This post has bits of Food Friday, Style, and Review all mixed together, so might as well put it all in a MDIP. My next eight weekends all have something going on; I thought it best to enjoy my free time while I can, by means of a shopping/chill day with friends.

The F line was off schedule yet again, but we made it to Bay Street in the end. A scrumptious lunch at CPK – I ordered the Hawaiian BBQ Chicken – really hit the spot. I've decided that pizza is my favorite, hands down. No trip to Bay Street is complete without a visit to Lush. I bought the Rub Rub Rub Body Scrub to help exfoliate when I feel icky, and it smells incredible – jasmine, mimosa and orange – all my favorites. I also picked up the Cup O' Coffee face mask, again, for exfoliating and awakening. I've tried BB Seaweed multiple times, but I can never remember my opinion of it, so I picked up a sample of it yet again. Not pictured are two soap samples, Karma and Honey I Washed the Kids, that I grabbed for my friend who was sick. Clearly, I'm crazy about Lush, but I can't help but love how my backpack smells after buying all the things.

I wasn't planning on buying clothes, but I ended up getting a cardigan from Old Navy. It's pretty much a blanket with sleeves, so heavy and plush, but it drapes very nicely, as you can't see from the photo because I am not a model (it looks better in person I swear). I believe it was on sale, as there was no tag, but the sales associate estimated it was $50, and I ended up paying half that amount. I also saw a cute sweatshirt from Forever 21 that says "Wifi & Caffeine," which I loved so much as wifi and caffeine are my life, and the & (ampersand) is my favorite glyph, but the sweatshirt was top shelf, so I didn't even bother to look at the price.

After shopping, we all hung out in the dorm, listening to music, drinking coffee, and watching Agents of Shield. It was nice to be able to relax and have fun ("derp around" as my friend calls it) without being serious about school, even if only for a few hours. To top it off, the dining hall was actually good for dinner (BBQ brisket, steak fries, and salad). Tomorrow, it's back with the nose to the grindstone, with internship orientations and extracurricular interviews, and then quite some time before I have a free weekend again (not until April I believe). It's good that everything's settling in and making sense; I look forward to seeing how this semester plays out. ◊
