So... I know it's been a while, but sadly I'll be back spamming your feeds with food pics and making you all hungry again ❤️.
The hiatus was well worth it because now I've got a sexy new camera to make these sexies look even better ;). Nothing better than #foodporn , especially when it looks -this- good.
Now... Onto the actual food. Who here loves cake? I sure do. It's been too long since I've had a guilty indulgence like this one, but rum cake is definitely the way to go to send off the summer weather (hopefully we still get quite a bit more ☀️ though because let's face it--we need all we can get here in the #pnw ). If you love a moist cake that'll make your family and friends drool, this is the dessert route to take! Pairs perfectly with a coffee or some strong tea 😚.
P.S. Scroll for the slice's solo pic!
Je ne sais pas vous mais ici on s est bien régalé pendant les vacances.... les bonnes habitudes sont d'autant meilleures à reprendre! Smoothie Mango Lassi pour le petit-dej ce matin, au top! 1 mangue, 1 peu de yahourt ou lait végétal, de vanille dans un blender et c'est tout! // I don't know about you but we kinda indulge here during our summer vacations! And it's all good, it's part of the fun of travelling, making good habits, like incorporating as much fruits and veggies into our meals, even easier to come back to as we step into back to school mode. Mango smoothie for breakfast this morning just hit the spot (blend a ripe mango with non-dairy milk or yogurt, some vanilla et voila!) #makeyourownfood#backtoschool#goodhabits#summerindulgence#mango#smoothie#lassi#vegan
Who is ready for "Back To You"????😏 I've spent this entire summer feeling like I have been on top of the world!! We have been so busy doing doing so many great things and taking the kids on adventures! 🎂Birthday adventures
🏊♀️So much lake time
💑Mommy and daddy adventures
🗽NYC exploring with some 🚆 🎠🦓🐆
The list goes on and on... Luckily my workout program this summer has been sooo easy to adapt to my changing weekly summer schedule. It's only 4 days a week, so I have been able to mold it around whatever we have been doing each week. Being 30 minutes a day and having the ability to do it wherever I have been has allowed me to stay on course!✊
I can say my nutrition has been pretty good...but I have indulged a few too many times on 🍟🍔🎂🍻🌭🍦🍩🥂
It's time to start getting back on track getting "Back To Me"!!! My next challenge group is beginning Monday, August 27th with a prep week and starting off hardcore and ready to bust some goals, September 3rd!! .

Today's little pleasures...
A lovely meal from M&S, eaten in my garden as the evening began to cool down, watching the clouds start to glow as the sun descends.
Feeling the breeze on my neck after a haircut and being told by the hairdresser that my self-coloured hair (from a spray in lightener that I used last summer) looks like an expensive balayage colour (whatever that means!!).
Treating myself to a couple of lovely sweet, summery solid perfumes from @lush
When contemplating the next summer residence built solely for the purpose of entertaining my few selected guests and friends, not too big and not too small, with just enough garden and in perfect taste, Chiswick House comes to mind as the best option. Designed by and for Lord Burlington in 1729, this magnificent Palladian house was later ceded to the Cavendish family and the 4th Duke who then passed it on to his young son William, 5th Duke of Devonshire, married to the famous and notorious Georgina Spencer. Cavendish family knew how to have fun and made some substantial additions to the grounds, not least the orangerie with its world famous collection of camellias, still in existence to this day. Once Nicolas I, Tsar of Russia came for breakfast and they had to chase giraffes around the grounds as they were very dissatisfied with their placement at the table. Anyway, cut a long story short, the guest list reads like the creme de la creme of the bold and the beautiful and way better than what we get nowadays. Handel visited few times as did Charles Dickens I think, as well as Voltaire, Rousseau, Banjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Garibaldi, two Tsars of Russia and a whole array of major and minor aristocrats and politicians. #art#artist#architecture#london#cavendish#entertainment#history#historyofart#historyofeurope#chiswickhouse#lordburlington#westernart#westerncivilization#walk#summerindulgence#famoushouses#greatpeople#greatcitiesoftheworld#handel#dickens#devonshire#beauty#tomaszlis
