A Day In Greenwich

It was absolutely gorgeous out the other day; the perfect weather to just take a day off and head to the beach! Motivated by my newly purchased workout clothes from Forever 21, I actually got myself to go on a quick run beforehand (and even managed to convince Chris to join me!) I was really pleased with my new gear from Forevr21 and highly recommend you check out their stuff (especially those of you who are broke after purchasing just a few items from lululemon). I had no idea that they did activewear, and after searching everywhere for some cute sports bras and workout tanks, found exactly what I was looking for and more on their site. The fact that each item was $15 or less was definitely a plus as well. What I was most pleased about when my package finally arrived, was the comfort and quality of the clothing for their price. The spandex had a little pocket for a key and the sports bras were very supportive. But enough about my workout clothes!

En route to Greenwich beach, we had to stop at Green & Tonic, a recently opened small Heath food store and cafe. My good friend Desiree had recommended it to me, and I was dying to try one of their juices or smoothies. If you’ve ever been to an Organic Avenue, it reminded me a lot of that. A modern, green atmosphere, with raw vegan treats/snacks and freshly made juices stocking their shelves. The added bonus about this place is that they make smoothies and also allow you to build your own salad. I ordered the Ultimate Warrior (apple cider, pear, banana, chia seeds, kale and camu camu), and it was the perfect treat after my run – some competition for my own morning smoothie recipe! I’ll definitely be making an Ultimate Warrior myself in the future.

After our pit stop, we we finally on the way to the beach! Not s cloud in the sky and hardly another soul on the beach, it was so serene and simply beautiful. I took a wonderful nap under my fedora.

Tired out from the sun and tummies rumbling, it was time for a late lunch. Once again as recommended by Desiree, we went to Meli-melo. Although it sells macarons and true buckwheat crèpes, this is not your typical French crèperie. It’s atmosphere is a little more funky, sunny, and airy than your usual cozy hole in the wall. But more importantly, their menu offers a multitude of creative crèpes, both sweet and savory, as well as salads, paninis, soups, smoothies, juices, gelato flavours, and baked goods – in my opinion, all that is good in life.  Clearly, this place is right up my ally. I ordered the valentine crèpe, definitely one of the more jam packed crèpes on the menu. My plate, of course, was still empty by the end of the meal 🙂
