Quick Hello!

It has been a while since I’ve posted, but I have so many blog posts that I am currently working on, and cannot commit to just one. I’m working on scheduling a few to post shortly, but wanted to say hello!

Today, WordPress notified me that it’s my one year anniversary for this blog and I cannot believe it has been so long! 2016 seriously flew by, and it feels that 2017 is doing just that.

School and TWO internships have been taking over my life, but I have promised myself to do more this semester for myself: including relaxing, shopping, hanging and going out with friends, spending weekends photographing things, exploring my very own makeup collection in ways I have not before, and enjoying the last few months I have left in college! Wow, that was a mouthful. Also, I have been trying to explore new coffee shops in the city, and I will be sharing those experiences on here besides Instagram, so stay tuned for those as well.

I have been interning at Soom Foods, a start-up based out of Philadelphia, in which it sells premium tahini. Although I’m Jewish, I never actually tried tahini with my falafel before; I thought I wouldn’t like it. However, the CEO had given me a container of their original tahini and their chocolate sesame spread, and I am OBSESSED. It is SO good. I was so reluctant to try it at first because I really thought I was going to hate it, but luckily the complete opposite occurred! And I never knew how many health benefits sesame offers!! It’s also such a versatile product and I am excited to drizzle whole wheat pancakes with their chocolate spread and work tahini into a delicious salad dressing. Definitely consider checking out their product offerings. If you’re afraid to try it like I was, try their chocolate spread first. You can literally eat it by the spoonful. For someone who doesn’t like Nutella, I was surprised that I enjoyed this so much. To get away from that topic for a second, I am working on creating an e-commerce marketing strategy for them. I’ve never actually done something like that before, so it’s so beneficial for me and I am so lucky to have such a wonderful “mentor” and supervisor as we tackle this strategy together.

On a side note, I stopped the ketogenic diet. My stomach and digestive system became so whacky and I had to blame it on all of the dairy I was eating (sorry stomach!). However, I am so happy that I incorporated a healthy lifestyle again. I am now watching my carb intake and dairy intake and I am thrilled with how successful I’ve been with it! I’m going away for spring break, so really relying on that to keep me motivated.

PS: Check out my photography page!

Anyways, I’m about to go see Fifty Shades Darker with two friends, so I’ll catch y’all later!

Peace & love,

Julie
