1. I somehow survived a year at Starbucks without any major spills on myself, until now. I spilled a venti Pike Place all over the register counter, and two hours later spilled a venti toffee nut latte ALL DOWN MY FRONT. My shoes will forever smell like sugar.
2. Sometimes my coffee comes with a side of cat.
3. I really want to grill some veggies, but I don’t own a grill. This is a problem.
4. This made me laugh sosososo hard…
This girl has a wicked awesome memory, and remembered THIS POST (I had to go to Google and type in “blissfulbritt fiddle head ferns” because I couldn’t find the post! THANK YOU GOOGLE!) The things I am remembered for…like eating ferns.
5. I’m obsessed with golden figs right now. I want all the figs, ALL THE TIME.
6. My runs have been fantastic lately? I had a too legit to quit 5 mile run a few days after my last race, it was wonderful. Two days later I had a legit 7 mile run. I’ll take it.
7. I enjoy being “alone.” I’ve officially been single for one year, and while the last year had ups and downs and all arounds, I am alive and WELL! A peaceful mindset is life changing.
8. I was cutting strawberries and kiwi for a fruit mix, and it was so relaxing that I didn’t realize I was chopping for nearly 45 minutes. Being one with my food.
9. The other day I ate an entire can of beans. Refer to #7, it’s a good thing I sleep alone…
10. I chopped all my hair off! Top photo is after I got it cut, aka it’s only straight because someone straightened it for me. I am much too lazy to straighten it myself, so bottom photo is what it looks like usually. Only special occasions will see straight hair.
It’s growing on me, pun intended.

Amy @ A Desert Girl
I confess that I am eating pasta for breakfast as I type this comment. It’s delish.
Ouch on the coffee spills but that is awesome that you made it a year with no major spills! I love the hair – straight and curly – it really suits you!
I had a rice/quinoa blend with veggies for breakfast. With salsa and cayenne. HA.
Nicole Marie Story
OMG. The hair is PERFECTION. I lovvvvve it.
I love your haircut!!! You look so good with short hair… If only I could muster up ANY courage to do the same… Never. Lol. Please come and be single with me so we can eat bean-laden dishes and go around making the town smell to high heavens. HA! ❤
Best idea ever, I would loveeee nothing more than to be single bean lovers together. BAAAHAHA.
love this post! the hair is adorable, the fruit looks amazing, and you’re just mega cute. i also have been a barista and managed to keep the spilling to a minimum, thankfully…and i also love being single and enjoying my life at my own pace. 🙂 confession: sometimes the only thing getting me to finish a morning run when i’m exhausted is the iced coffee waiting at the end of my route at my fave natural deli. will run for (good) caffeine.
YES! Nothing is more motivating to me than coffee and treats at the end of the tunnel!! BEST reward for a good run.
You are just the most adorable (and only) Vegan Brittany I know!! 🙂
I LOVE your haircut! 🙂 I also love all of the confessions. Thanks for sharing. have an awesome week. My confession – I want to do the same cut, but I’m too chicken!
AHH Sometimes you just gotta BITE THE BULLET! I told myself, “go shorter than you’re used to..if all else fails IT WILL grow back!!” It’s just hair!! 🙂
Your haircut is AWESOME. So you, too! I like my hair long so I can throw it in a messy bun (legit messy, not me making an effort to look that way) and forget about it. YES for epic runs right now! I love when you get in the stride and least expect it. It makes them even more enjoyable. And being single. Yep, I hear you on that one. I wasn’t in a serious relationship like you, but I’m going on about a year since I closed the doors on an important person in my life. Life goes on, and life is pretty great by yourself too. I like being independent though, so that definitely has something to do with it 🙂 Lots of happiness in this post! Minus the spilling coffee thing… I’m impressed you made it that long.
I do love the messy bun, it makes life easy. Amen to closing doors and starting new!! Life is too short to hold onto the past (something I have to remind myself of often!!) Sad when people leave our lives, but I like to think that someone epic as FAACCKK is on my horizon. 😉 Also, drama free life is LEGIT! HAH.
Food, Booze, & Baggage
LOVE your haircut!! It is cute curly! I hate days where you just feel like you are all fumbles…it is that kind of day that just makes you want to go home and start all over 🙂 That is pretty impressive a whole year without a spill!
Ahhh, love, love, love the hair!!! Also, meal prep/cutting fruit and veg is super therapeutic to me, totally can zone out!
di @ life of di.
Love love love your haircut! It looks so great 🙂 I’ve really wanted to go back to a shorter style but now that I’m prego and growing by the day – I figure my face shape will change too which means NO SHORT HAIR for me! Maybe next year if I can get back to my pre-baby weight!
You are going to make such an adorable pregnant gal. I cannot wait for photos!
Yay for running, juicy fruit & inner peace! So happy for you that you’re healing and being okay single. You’re a strong lady to be at that place already! It takes courage to let go of the sadness after a relationship, so hearing that you’re enjoying being alone is really inspiring. Yay for you!
YOU LOOK SO LIVE GIRL!!
You in Real Time, baby! Gosh… I love it.
Glad it is growing on you because what really matters is what you think. But for the record… It’s SO right.
And look at you, getting zen with the fruit salad. You will always have a place to Zen in my kitchen! I would love that. I’m…not so zen at cooking.
Love that you are able to be alone and not lonely, by the way. (0:
Your haircut is SO cute!!!
I adore your new haircut- so sassy and fun!
I also love that you enjoy being alone. I think more women need to embrace that!
And YAY for the great runs!!
Hmm- my confession- I haven’t had my hair done since October!! And I really like the name fiddle heads!
you’re such an inspiration – simple posts are so joyful that i just wanna dash into the computer and eat figs with you ❤
D’aaaww thank you friend, as are YOU!
Aww!! Both hairstyles are cute imo 🙂
I confess my woman crush on your adorable hair-do lady! You look fab! And preach to the single ladies club. I’ve also been single for a year and guess what? My heart is still beating and I didn’t fall off the face of the earth on Valentine’s day. Whew. I actually enjoy just “being”- no man, no worries, and focusing on bettering myself.
AHH, I love this comment so much. 🙂 AMEN to no worries, NO DRAMA, and focusing on ourselves. We deserve nothing less!!
I’m sorry about your two venti spills! Smelling like sugar isn’t too bad though, right?! There could be worse smells for sure haha.
Yay for too legit to quit runs and your new hair!
Ahhhhh you look SO CUTE!!!! LOVE the hair 🙂
Thank you friend! It’s always lovely to see a comment from you! ❤
Love the hair, Gurl! There’s a running joke in my office surrounding the fact that I spill coffee or tea on myself every morning. Cause I do.
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
Your hair! Omg I looooove itttttt! I got my hair cut last week, and I’m always always tempted to chop it short, but then I chicken out in the end 😦 Only a trim for me, but I seriously want short hair so hath at is can be lazy and have less to wash and fuss with 😆
A whole year without a spill? Way to go girl! I’m so HAPPY to hear that you are doing just fabulous after being single for a year. I’ve been single for far too long, BUT I am okay with that actually. I feel like the second half to 2014 will be the best. I have a good feeling….LOVE YOUR HAIR! 😀
I love all of your confessions! Your hair looks so dang cute. I also want to eat all of that fruit. YUM! Good job on your “legit” runs too!
Khushboo Thadani (@KhushbooThadani)
Your hair looks fabulous- I’m loving it…perfect for summer too! I need to sort my hair out so that it’s easier to manage in the heat! Let’s just say that I face a constant battle between my desire to work out and keep my hair looking good! Also I’m kinda loving your number 7- you are an inspiration, lady!
girlll you are looking fiineee w/ your nail hair cut. I see a man in your future very soon…. well as long as you don’t spill anymore coffee & stain your shirts 😀
Love the hair and SHOES!! Haha, I don’t know if they are supposed for walking but if I ever start up running…
I LOVE walking in my Vibrams, I hike in them too!
I love the hair. You absolutely pull it off, and I also love the happy kick ass runs. I see you’re getting your groove back, while being totally single. A-to the-Men. I think everybody should go through a period where they are alone; it’s painful and can certainly be lonely at times, but it’s also really great for the soul. It teaches you to be totally comfortable with yourself.
I confess dreading going back to work today after the last week off. I would much rather stay here and frolic with the Hubby.
kathy@vodka and soda
WE MISSED YOU AT BBM2014!! we had a blast, there was video, laughs, lots of drinks. i’m sure you’ll be reading recaps soon.
and you are too freaking adorable! i love both hair styles 🙂
I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE RECAPS! You bitches all looked fantastic together.
Life After Swimming
LOVE the hair!!!! So stinking cute. I am patiently waiting for the wedding to be over so I can chop mine!
Sarah @ Feeeding the Brain and Body
Your hair looks fantastic, perfect for the spring! I rarely straighten my hair too, I think it has been almost a year since I have straightened it.
haha about the beans! I have been going through them and lentils lately so quickly. They seem to like to go through me quickly too if you catch my drift. Haha get it … “drift”…
Hahahaa @ the shoes :))
p.s. your hair looks fabulous!
Holly @ My Plant-Based Family
I love your hair!!!
Davida @The Healthy Maven
Ya look GORG ya fern! Confession…I may or may not have had a glass of wine with my lunch…
OMG your hair!! That is GORGEOUS!! Seriously if I wasn’t hitched I would hack all of mine, but the old ball and chain insists I keep it long. Whatever dude. I told him I will keep it long as long as he doesn’t shave. When he does he tends to look 14, and I just feel like a creepy old woman rocking the cradle…
Bahaha, I legit laughed out loud at this.
Rach @ This Italian Family
Your short hair is so cute!! You wear it well (pun intended). 🙂
Also, your fruit salad mix looks amazing. I was at Whole Foods today looking at all the fruit and thinking that buying a bunch and mixing it would be delicious. But I already have a watermelon waiting to be chopped up at home. Maybe that will be next week’s project! 🙂
An Unrefined Vegan
Love your confessions, love the new haircut – sooooo cute. Vibram lawsuit?? What’s that about (okay, I’ll just Google it, but you know)? I’ve got me a pair and I love ’em.
I’m sure you’ve Googled it by now, it just seems ridiculous to me. My thoughts? As long as I am being smart with my running and paying attention to my body I see nothing wrong with these shoes!! In fact my runs are BETTER in these. Hogwash I say!
The Vegan 8
I am in love with your haircut….gorgeous girl!!! Haven’t heard about the Vibram lawsuit….sounds interesting! Kiwis and strawberries have made it’s way into several recipes coming up on the blog….they are just the perfect pair! Congrats on your legit runs too, girl! Whoop!
GiGi Eats Celebrities
I confess that if I could eat sugar, I would eat your feet, when they were in your shoes that smell like sugar.
This sounds both tantalizing and disturbing..all at the same time. I’d expect nothing less from you.
You are so adorable. I remember spilling entire black coffees all over my pants during insane rush hours. One time I had like a 2nd degree burn on my arm. It was awesome.
karla @ finding my fit
That haircut is so darn adorable on you-you rock it!
I was enjoying being single but sometimes you can’t help when the right person walks into your life 🙂
Love love love your hair! Congrats on a year at Starbucks 🙂
Luv What You Do
Your hair looks adorable! I love it!
When I didn’t have a grill, I used to buy the grilled veggies from Whole Foods or roast them in the oven. I did buy one of this griddlers which was nice for meat but the veggies just weren’t the same!
Melissa @ Al Forno Mementos
You are adorable! haha Buy a grill pan!! Kinda the same thing. 😉 And number 7 … agreed. We are alive and well. 😛 Love your hair as always! 🙂
Ok so a FEW things. haha #3 made ME laugh so hard. I actually picked some and ate them! They are everywhere on my hikes. Secondly I LOVEEEEE the new blog. It looks bad ass (although it took me more than a moment to figure out how to comment). and Third, your hair looks amazing! I miss my short hair but you may have inspired me!
