My food cravings are so random sometimes.

A few hours after breakfast (overnight oats + iced coffee) this morning, my taste-buds wanted something cool, sweet, and creamy, but also crunchy and salty. There were lots of competing cravings, but I just went with it. So, for lunch today, I ended up pairing a banana smoothie with kale chips. It was random, yet nutritious and delicious.

The banana smoothie was easily the highlight of the meal. In the mix:

  • 1 container of plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Almond Breeze
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 3-4 ice cubes

On the side, I enjoyed a big batch of kale chips.

So, I have to show you guys my most recent purchase because I’m a bit obsessed with it. I’m also obsessed with Etsy, in general, so I figured I’d share. I know a lot of you love Etsy, too! 😉

After seeing Katie from goodLife {eats} with an adorable strap on her camera at the Thermador Blogger Weekend, I just had to have one, too. I asked her where she got it and she directed me to August Blossoms on Etsy.

August Blossoms had a ton of different styles to chose from, but I ended up getting the exact same strap as Katie. I love the design as well as the lens pocket. I’m always misplacing mine, so this was a key selling point for me.

How adorable is this camera strap?! I’m in love.

  1. That camera strap is SO cute. I will definitely need to invest in one of those once I get a DSLR. Hopefully that will be soon. 🙂

  3. I wish I could find kale more easily here in Austalia! I’ve only found it once in recent months, and it cost $3 for a tiny bunch. 🙁

  4. Smoothie = yummy and kale chips even better! I also adore your camera strap! The lens pocket is super helpful! I always worry I’m going to misplace mine too! Especially when I’m really into something I’m photographing and forget what I’m doing with things that I have. Hahaha! Thanks for this post. I love random eating! 😀

  5. How funny! I recently sewed a very similar camera strap cover for my own Canon XS. The lens cover pocket is brilliant, though. I guess it’s time for an upgrade on my strap cover.
