Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

I tried this out for the first time on Tuesday, the first day of October, it seemed pretty fitting and it has definitely been full on fall weather this past week.
I can't stress the ratio of easy to delicious this recipe is. For how yummy it is, it should take more than 5 minutes to put together. Here we go!

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 cup water
1 chopped apple (keep the skin on)
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
and of course as much or as little brown sugar as your heart desires

Bring the cup of water to a boil and add all the ingredients (not the brown sugar) and reduce heat to low-med (I put mine right in between low and medium) and stir for 2-3 minutes. Then it's done! I found the recipe from this site and they also add a bit of milk, which I didn't do but would probably make it creamier and just add to it's yum factor. Plus, it also clocks in around 287 calories (without milk, but including 2.5 teaspoons of sugar) and keeps me full for a few hours and I think it yields about 10 grams of fiber which is pretty awesome for your first meal of the day.

Basically it's apple pie for breakfast. You're welcome. The blog I found it from also has a banana coconut oatmeal that I'm planning on trying sometime (prob not till I get sick of this).

Also, just an aside I found some amazing nail polish today. It's crazy expensive. At least, for me it is. I mean yeah I have paid $14 for nail polish, but $20???? Geez, I feel like I should have bought some jimmy choo sandals to show case my nails to go along with it. In any case I had a terrible morning, so what did I do? I bought whatever the hell I wanted. Not really, cause then I probably would have bought some jimmy choo's. But I decided crazy expensive nail polish would make me feel better. No worries, it totes does. I'm definitely a sucker for retail therapy, I'm not as bad I used to be but it's a thing. Anyway, here's a picture of the nail polish. I have heard great things about nars polish so hopefully it holds up. The real test is tomorrow when I have to open and unpack boxes at work.
It's actually a lot lighter than the picture shows. I really like gray polishes, I own probably three different shades.

Also, can I just say that my new phone's camera is freakin' amazeballs. The detail it picks up is such an improvement from my iphone 4s. I really love it.
