pearl in the shell

(dress: h&m vest: thrifted, flats: simply vera by vera wang) 

   Sometimes I draw a blank of what to say here. Summer time and the past few weeks have given me a huge amount of free time, which most I have spent packing and, I suppose, relaxing. During the school year, I never actually have this amount of free time, and since I am only in summer classes this has allowed me to do so. I am person who enjoys a full schedule, so I am quite hoping for a new part-time job to fill some time (and my wallet).
   Today I tried my bet at boba pearls and smoothie combinations. I have tried preparing tapioca pearls in the past, and I still can't seem to make them taste as if I am ordering bubble tea out. I used this recipe here for the pearls, and this recipe here for kale chips (which is my favorite for kale). I am awaiting moving to my new apartment, where we have air conditioning while using a hot oven and a working refrigerator, so I can try my hand at popsicles and fruit pies. I mean, those are summery must haves.
