Café Watch // Ibiza Edition

Leave a Comment

           As I mentioned in my Ibiza photo diary, we spent a lot of our time in Ibiza, well, eating. For whatever reason, there was a surplus of super delicious cafés that were gluten free, organic, raw, etc. In our multiple food tours, we came across a recently opened café, "Don't Panic It's' Organic Ibiza". We soon befriended the super cool owners who explained with very good english that they had only opened 2 weeks ago. Afterward, we began diving into the many things they had to offer. The first time we went, I got a falafel build-your-own salad, which consisted of just about everything you could think of, from chickpeas to quinoa to sweet potato fries. However, the second time around, we pulled out all of the shots and got smoothies, salads/sandwiches, and homemade BANANA BREAD. After spending 9 months in the land of butter, baguettes, butter, and croissants, getting a smoothie and these other delectable delights was like a dream. (Side note: I had a smoothie just about every day over break and it was fantastic) Anyways, I was extremely excited to switch up my normal food routine, as well as to try their fresh banana bread drizzled with honey. 

I just really wanted to share this café with all of you, in case you find yourself planning a trip to Ibiza. Funnily enough, my sister (Hi Noelle) decided to copy my Spain vacation for this summer, but I had to create "Isabelle's Spain Travel Guide" for her so she could get the exact details. Sisters, man. Hopefully this post didn't make you too hungry! Also, still gathering questions for a school year abroad post! Send 'em in via Tumblr or in a comment.  :) xoxo


De Retour // May 2015 Playlist + SYA Q&A?!

Leave a Comment

     Among posting photos from my recent trip to Spain and just general busyness, I easily forgot about one of my favorite posts to make; seasonal playlists. I always find myself looking for new music, and I have downloaded tons of new songs since my last playlist for Winter. For these types of posts, I usually use Groove Shark, but have finally caved in the Spotify movement (my username is 'lostbutnotfound') At the moment, I only have this one playlist up on there, but will probably find a day of boredom this summer that will consist of playlist making.  I'd say this playlist is a combination of a bunch of different, mostly good hearted/passionate songs....I'm clearly great at descriptions, but you get the idea! Go have a listen ---> here. I hope you guys enjoy jamming out to these songs! Lemme know your song faves at the moment in a comment below. :)

P.S. I was thinking of doing a q&a post or video on my experience these past 9 months for my school year abroad in France. I would answer any questions about it that you guys have and elaborate beyond that, and maybe get some of my friends to be in it, haha. We'll see! But I first of all need a decent amount of questions, so you can send me some either in a comment, a Tumblr message, Instagram, by email (, Twitter, etc. Thanks guys!

When I first got back from vacation and began sorting through my pictures, I somehow forgot that I had pictures from Barcelona, because it sort of feels as if we never went to there. Obviously, Barcelona is not a place easily forgotten, but we were there for a mere 2 days before heading to Ibiza. However, from the moment we got off of our early morning flight, we made the most of our 48 hours. In addition to diving into tapas and smoothies galore, we did tons of walking around the vast city. Sure, we didn't do much of the historical "touristy" sightseeing, but we used our time how we wished. When not searching for chips and guacamole, we were either hanging out by the port, storming the large Zara, or watching street performers. Even though we spent the least amount of time in Barcelona, we all agree that our first day there was the best way to kick off the beginning of our independent travel. There's a certain carefree vibe in the warm air of Barcelona that felt 1000 times different than that of France. Plus, the general shopping & food tops Rennes any day, so that's a major plus.
