Pasta pasta pasta ❤

Good morning!  I’m up early getting some studying done at Lift Coffee Company on their outdoor patio area (a great spot in the mornings when it’s not busy yet).  Going to finish up shortly then go back to the hotel for a little swim and hot tub before today’s show!  Joyride, the main event of Crankworx is this afternoon and the village gets craaaazy busy.  Super cool atmosphere though.  I’ll be watching from one of the sponsor tents a little above all the crowds (like the photo above…perfect view of the course!).  Check out my story on Instagram today for some updates, it’s sure to be rad!  Last night, my mom came up and we went for a delicious dinner at Trattoria di Umberto, the restaurant at my hotel.  It was sooo tasty.  I had the seafood tagliatelle!  Highly recommend it, a very authentically Italian restaurant.  Had suh a cozy night with mom ending with a movie in bed.  I gotta say, the room that Executive Hotels got me was perfect for the weekend.  Great views, lots of space, nicely finished, and super central location.  Such a dope hotel at the base of the village!  Alright, time to grab a coffee for mom and head back to the hotel!  Enjoy today’s show it you’re in Whistler babeskillets, Tita xx

Crankworx fun!

Hello!  Just got home after checking out the end of today’s downhill race.  It’s the weekend which is extra busy during Crankworx, and I spent most of my day a little out of the way.  Went for an early morning walk to one of the lakes, then got some studying done poolside.  Perfect chill day, I needed a little break from the hecticness.  Yesterday evening was super fun though!  Grabbed a Buddha Bowl from The Green Moustache, as well as a turmeric latte (sooo good) for necessary fuel first haha.  Love this spot, organic and healthy!  To start the night, I watched the dual slalom which was super sick.  Watched part of the race from a little up the hill in the Oakley area, a nice vantage point.  Then I migrated to the Sramm zone.  They are of one of the major bike-part companies, and have an awesome viewing area set up which I am lucky enough to watch from.  Beverages and funky pillows, what more do you need.  It’ll be perfect for tomorrow’s main event: Redbull Joyride (where dudes do the craziest stunts on bikes).  Then I went to a cool event at Forlise!  Gotta love a party with a DJ and a foosball table.  Ran into so many familiar faces there, too.  Everyone’s always in town this time of year so you bump into friends all over the place!  Super fun.  Then I got to dance the night away with some of my favorite girls that I haven’t seen in so long.  We went form event to event at different bars…you know you’re having fun when they close the bar and you’re still ready to dance haha.  Haven’t done that in sooo long.  Time to get ready for the evening!  My mom’s coming up so I’m stoked to spend some time with her and have cozier night.  Talk later babeskillets, Tita xx

Bikini by Kendall + Kylie Swim!

Finishing up an afternoon of studying  and gearing up for an eventful rest of the day!  Grabbed a Buddha Bowl from my favorite healthy eats spot in Whistler, The Green Moustache, for some fuel to keep me going through the day.  I had the loveliest morning today…the village is so calm in the mornings, especially during Crankworx when everyone is out late partying haha.  Forlise, a cool creative space that Lululemon has, always has dope things going on and this week they have morning yoga classes (there’s another one tomorrow, 8AM!) in the mix.  Starting your day with some yoga is always a good idea.  Grabbed a latte from Lift afterwards and strolled home to take advantage of the hot tub (early morning=empty!).  Pretty awesome place for your morning coffee I’d say.  Among the list of events tonight is the dual slalom which is easily viewed from the base of the mountain.  Cool event that you can really get into watching, even if you don’t bike at all.   I’ll be spectating for sure.  Forlise is also having a event this evening (beer and booze and cool art!) which is also a fundraiser for forest fires in BC.  There’s a mountain bike movie premier, too (free and outdoor at the Olympic Plaza).  So many things to check out!  Time to change get ready for the evening.  The weather is a little cool…but hopefully the rain will stay away.  Ciao babeskillets, Tita xx

Hello from Whistler!  If felt so nice to wake up in the mountains this morning.  Got up early and already had a productive day, but here’s a recap of yesterday afternoon.  After a nice cruise up the Sea to Sky highway I arrived to a warm welcome at the Mountainside Lodge by Executive Hotels.  I have a sweet view of the pool area and the mountains from my room, and the coziest bed.  Love my home base for the weekend.  Started the adventure with a wine spritzer with a view haha!  There’s always so many events going on during Crankworx here, it’s hard to choose where to go!  Last night I went to a screening of a film by Bureo hosted by Patagonia.  It’s a super cool company run by a group of young engineers who got fed up with all the garbage they saw in the ocean when they surfed and started using recycled fish nets (which are usually disposed off in the water) to make plastic for skateboards!  Such a dope idea.  There going to start making surf fins like this as well.  Definitely check them out!  Alright, time for me to get some studying done…there’s a few events I’m hitting up this evening so I need to get work done now haha.  Talk later babeskillets, Tita xx

Good morning!  It’s Thursday and I’m up early studying.  Here’s a cozy look for a day of working from home (or reading a book in the backyard…the coziest!). Love this strawberry top, a simple t-shirt with a cute touch.  I’ve been wearing it a ton this summer.  Some casual jeans, some chill kicks, and voila!  Matched my water to my look by adding strawberries and lemon in haha.  Love making a big jug of water with mint, fruit, etc. and then sip it throughout the day.  Hydration is muy important!  Of course, the best accessory to finish any look is Moka, so majestic and brown.  Love being home with that little ween!  I’m stoked because after I finish studying this morning I’m packing up and heading to Whistler for a few days with Executive Hotels for Crankworx!  They have a lovely hotel right in the village and it’s the perfect place to stay during a fun festival like Crankworx (a huge mountain bike event that’s been happening for over ten years).  There’s tons of events going on both on the mountain and in the village and I’ll be checking it out all weekend.  Love having my own zone though, as I can get work done during the day/in the mornings as well.  Productivity and fun in the same place, the way I like it.  Follow along on my Instagram story (@titaszlachetka) as I’ll be updating you on what to do and where to go throughout the weekend.  Whistler is always awesome, and I haven’t been up there since the April so I’m hyped to see some friends and my favorite mountains.  Talk later babeskillets, Tita xx

Hello!  It’s been a while since my last post, but this week was a whirlwind of work and study overload.  Completed the latest chapter of my research and will be putting it on the back burner for a little while.  I’m taking another medical board exam in September so August will be fully committed to prepping for that.  Afterwards, I’ll be doing some traveling before diving back into my research in October.  Sometimes you need to take a step back and realize it’s OK to take a little break from something when you have over-stacked your plate.  It helps when the research facility you work for is super supportive and taking a brief study leave is easy, too.  I feel so much better about everything already and not stressed about fitting everything into the day anymore.  Still working hard, but at a healthy pace…burn out is not on my schedule!  Just finishing up a day of studying and it’s time for an overdue outfit post.  Ruffles are one of my favorite details of the summer and stripes are always my jam.  This top is actually off-shoulder but you can wear it one-shoulder as well, which is pretty cute in my opinion!  Some little denim shorts and platform sneakers finish this sweet, summery look.  Casual and perfect for fun summer days.  I doubled up on chokers here and love the combo of a thick velvet band with a delicate gold chain.  I can’t believe it’s the middle of August already!  I’m going to try to be more on top of my blog now, I still have so much to share with you from the summer so far!  Talk tomorrow babeskillets, Tita xx

Outdoor eats ❤

Happy Wednesday night!  We’re about to start a movie (I think they’re still deciding on what downstairs) and I’m all done studying for the day.  Brain is fried and a movie to decompress sounds muy perfecto.  Had some tasty baked egg plant and caprese salad for dinner, love light summer eats like that.  Reminded me of the tasty food we had at Hill’s Resort on Priest Lake.  We boated up and hung out on the patio sipping huckleberry cocktails.  So lovely!  Huckleberries are native to North Idaho and in the summer every restaurant up there has huckleberry flavored drinks.  I tried the huckleberry daiquiri and Essex when for huckleberry and jalapeño margarita (super spicy!).  The food was great, too: definitely try the shrimp tacos and for something lighter the mango-kale-quinoa salad.  Pretty and delicious!  I’ll teleport to sunny Priest lake boat days in my dreams tonight…mmmmm.  Sweet dreams babeskillets, Tita xx
