Foodie Pen Pals- April!

I got so excited about my package this month that I started into the treats before even snapping a picture or two!  This month I was matched with Megha, who did an absolutely wonderful job putting my treats together.  I told her that I liked chocolate and almonds as well as healthier snacks, but that I'm also open to trying new things.  For this month I got:
Baked JalapeƱo Cheese Crunchies- my friends and I devoured this them super fast 
Milk Chocolate covered potato chips- Perfect mix of sweet and salty
A Dark Chocolate Bar- I was trying to save this as a reward for finishing finals... 
Mini Stroopwafels- Basically, they're mini waffle cookies with a thin layer of carmel sandwiched in the middle- So. Good.  
Almondina- Almond biscottis that my co-workers were instantly jealous of

If you're interested in joining in on the food-trading fun, or if you just want to see what it's all about, head over to Lindsay's blog!

So, the good news is that I haven't dropped off the face of the earth.  Basically, I just needed a major blogging break.  Since I started this blog I've stressed about making sure I get decent pictures of outfits, blogging on a consistent schedule, etc etc.  When the anxiety over pictures didn't turn out well or not blogging "often enough" began to set in, it started to take the fun out of fashion.  So, I've spent the past little while taking some time to settle back into my own style and passions.  

I am a full time college student with homework, two jobs, and a crazy schedule- all of which makes blogging somewhat of a pain at many times.  So instead of trying to "Keep up with the Jones" I'm going to blog in a way that fits my lifestyle and schedule.

Basically, I'll be posting a little more often, though not everyday.  Also, even though the focus will probably still be on clothing and style, I'll also be blogging about a few more "lifestyle" related things.  

So, thanks for stickin' with me!  Here's to getting back in the swing of things!!
