my simple breakfast

quite obviously inspired by simply breakfast. this is my favorite breakfast, although i didn't eat it this morning. it's a semi-toasted bagel with plain cream cheese and smushed avocado. i'm pretty sure i was drinking green tea (the dark kind?) because i usually put milk in my black tea. i finished that book and let me tell you it was a total trip. it was amazing. i'm not usually drawn to coming of age books, but i saw a review of it in one of my magazines (BUST, maybe?) and thought it looked good. i highly recommend it if you're in the mood for a heart-wrenching tale about being thrown into the world that is Teenagehood.

i hope you all have a delightful day!


  1. Your blog is really nice and that breakfast looks very tasty!


  2. My mum and dad used to make baby food for me and my sister when we were..babies obviously. And they would be mainly made of avocado! I loveee avocado. Looks good x

  3. Teenaged land? I hope I never have to go back to those days! hah!

  4. nothing cheers me up more than a hearty breakfast.. it's the start of a good day :)

  5. I Love avocado! I usually have it for breakfast too! I also love your floral dish it's so pretty!! All the elements on this picture are perfect!

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
