I don’t have to visit every ice cream shop in LA to know that Manhattan Beach Creamery is my absolute favorite. This colorful corner cafe, is located down the street from my cousin’s old house. When I moved to LA, I remember going to her house for dinner and she asked me if I wanted banana foster for dessert. I am NOT a  banana person AT ALL but I said yes because I wanted to be polite. What I didn’t know was that I was about to indulge in a frozen bit of heaven that day and honestly I’ve been obsessed ever since. The other… View Post

It seems that I’ve been spending a lot of time in Culver City recently. Last week I was there for an amazing brunch at The Culver Hotel and this week I returned for a hike at The Culver City Stairs (aka Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook). When my friend invited me for a hike, she gave me a few options to choose from.

This past weekend was one of the most fun weekends I’ve had in a while. The crazy thing is, nothing wild or spectacular happened. I simply had a couple of girlfriends over for wine and laughs on Friday night and then on Saturday afternoon, my friend Sabine and I went to brunch at The Culver Hotel located in the heart of Downtown Culver City. I absolutely love The Culver Hotel, and its my #1 happy hour spot in LA. Something about the ambience, the romantic outdoor patio, and the delicious food & drinks always makes me want to come back for more. Although I’ve tried… View Post

First of all, thank you to everyone who sent me sweet messages, emails, DMs, and comments to check in on me during my mini hiatus. It was an unannounced break and I really needed to DISCONNECT. Now that I’m in a better space, I’m so excited to get back to my one true love aka blogging! Not gonna lie, after coming off of several weeks of living “off grid” and being unplugged, it was kind of overwhelming to come back to so many notifications. I’m definitely a “must have 10 emails or less in my email inbox” type of person, so now that all of… View Post
