So much love for this city ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
.
I had such a wonderful 4th of July exploring San Francisco. Thereโ€™s a real magic here that canโ€™t be put into words! ๐ŸŒƒ Maybe itโ€™s because itโ€™s surrounded by water, the steep streets, the pastel-coloured rows of houses ๐Ÿ  or the constant sea breeze ๐ŸŒŠ .
This place is something else ๐ŸŒž
Iโ€™m *always* down for pizza. ๐Ÿ•
.
Pizza alone, pizza together, pizza on the go, pizza sitting down. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป Thank you @pizzarocksacramento ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ™ˆ
.
I donโ€™t mean to be a pizza purist, but there are a few important things about a good slice, right? A thin crust with a nice rise, just enough cheesy stringiness and when it comes to toppings, less is more! ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ‘€ These guys are doing it right #keepupwithevers
Alright, yes. Iโ€™ve been eating Mexican twice a day since I arrived here. Gotta love California. ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒฏ
.
The food here is pretty insane. Thereโ€™s so much sourdough around and the health food stores are jam-packed with fresh and vibrant produce ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿฅ•๐ŸŠ Eating around a dietary restriction is genuinely the easiest thing. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
.
When Iโ€™m not eating tacos, Iโ€™ve been enjoying the crunchy peanut butter from @sprouts. According to locals, only 1 in 10 prefer crunchy to smooth. Iโ€™m not sure Iโ€™m okay with that statistic. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ #keepupwithevers
Ok, this is a cool town ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‘€
.
Iโ€™ve been in Sacramento for 4 days and already went to an awesome Ashtanga class, had some really good avocado, died of excitement in @sprouts, and have now landed in coffee heaven at @insightcoffee ๐Ÿงก
.
And before you ask, yes, they had oat milk. Because you all know oat milk has a special place in my heart. ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿคฉ
Happy Saturday! Only 5 days before Iโ€™m off to Sacramento for a whole 3 months. Canโ€™t believe it! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒˆ Iโ€™m super fortunate to have chosen the course I am on, and to have the opportunity to work on a high profile project as part of my dissertation. ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ‘€ That being said, Iโ€™m way more excited about eating all the food and drinking all the coffee in sunny California ๐Ÿงก๐ŸŒŸ
.
Iโ€™m slowly emptying out my cupboards, and bread hasnโ€™t made much of an appearance around here (shocker). I made a savoury porridge ๐Ÿฅฃ with nitrite-free bacon ๐Ÿฅ“ from @marksandspencerfoodpr and a poached egg from the farmers market. ๐Ÿ’• High quality eggs have a much brighter yolk! ๐Ÿณ #keepupwithevers ๐Ÿงก
Can you tell Iโ€™m totally smitten with @sparkyork yet? Iโ€™d spend every single evening there if I were staying in York over the summer! ๐Ÿ•๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒˆ
.
Super soft and delicious steamed buns from @street_cleaver ๐ŸฅŸ. And a beer. A must. ๐Ÿบ Happy Friday! ๐Ÿ’•

Happy Thursday! It was a beautiful day today, sunny, breezy and filled with fun ๐Ÿ”ฅ Iโ€™m squeezing in as many coffees and lunches, partly to avoid having to pack up my life! ๐Ÿ“ฆ I hate packing. Anyone else? ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒŸ
.
On the bright side, Iโ€™ve downsized my wardrobe and donated plenty to charity shops. I may or may not be making space for some new things from California ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿคฉ

Sweet dreams are made of these... ๐Ÿž๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿต Exams are over, my US visa has arrived, my sofaโ€™s been sold and Iโ€™m spending most days catching up with friends over coffee, ignoring the suitcase Iโ€™ve got to pack! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป in other words - life is sweet. .
Breakfast lately has consisted of toast with eggs or @wholeearthfoods PB ๐Ÿฅœ, and the occasional matcha with @oatly milk ๐Ÿฅ›
Would totally rather be eating this beauty than revising. ๐Ÿง  On the plus side, tomorrow is my last exam! Iโ€™ve got my stress levels under control (thanks meditation ๐Ÿงก), the sun has been shining and life is feeling so good! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ‘€
.
I fell totally in love with @coffeecoconuts in Amsterdam ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ All the millennial clichรฉs. Yes, thatโ€™s a turmeric late. ๐Ÿ•ถ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿ•‰
.
Happy Monday! Wishing you all a more exciting day than mine! ๐Ÿ†˜
Stress-busting alert! ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

Who else is feeling super overwhelmed? Between moving, revising for exams and organising my summer placement to the US, Iโ€™ve experienced stress levels that are beyond any Iโ€™ve felt before. Some nights, I lie in bed with my mind racing and my breath short ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ anyone else? .
Focus 12 is a meditation/breathwork technique which helps to focus and calm the mind ๐Ÿง  Just like any meditation! It was introduced to me by my awesome yoga teacher, @marie_saumon, and I have been using it ever since to help me manage highly stressful periods!
.
When it comes to stress, itโ€™s tempting to just think โ€œIโ€™ve just got to get through this thing and Iโ€™ll be alright afterโ€. In reality, our problems never go away. We need to get better at dealing with them! ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
If youโ€™re curious about Focus 12, google it - thereโ€™s a whole video explaining how to do it! ๐Ÿงก
Lunching in the sun - my favourite activity ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿ– Ever since I bought this set of reusable bamboo cutlery, it hasnโ€™t left my bag. Iโ€™m not zero-wasting as well as I could lately, with all the takeaway revision lunches ๐Ÿคช, but having cutlery with you at all times is so helpful! ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿฅ‡
.
This is my favourite @pretamangeruk salad ๐Ÿฅ— ~ prawn and avocado ๐Ÿฅ‘. And also yes. Popcorn is a total must. ๐Ÿฟ
Eating in the sunshine is the best summer activity AM I RIGHT?? ๐Ÿคฉ๐ŸŒž Iโ€™m dreaming of this soft boiled egg breakfast from earlier this week whilst enjoying my tahini noodle salad outside today. ๐Ÿค“ I know itโ€™s exam season and all that but summer is only once a year (and sometimes once every few years if you live somewhere cooler ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง), so make the most of it! Going for a stroll in the sun might be exactly what you need to power through your revision today. Think about it. ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿงก
