Valentine’s Day ❤️

Hope everyone had a magical Valentine’s Day! After a spontaneous change in plans, my love and I decided to spend the day in Manhattan Beach and enjoy our favorite steak dinner in Woodland Hills. I kept it casual this year in my favorite, leather. Leather at the beach? Yep, that’s me!

MESSHALL| LA

The idea of a “gastropub” was really intriguing, which is one of the reasons I decided to give this place a try! Industrial wooden tables and metal accents surround you while you’re enjoying an incredible meal at one of LA’s best. Messhall Kitchen is right off of Los Feliz and conveniently has valet, since the street parking is usually packed. I went for their weekend brunch, in which they have been voted as one of the best restaurants to brunch in Los Angeles.

I ordered the Messhall Benedict, which was a delightful mix of smoked ham, poached eggs, hollandaise all on a perfectly crisp english muffin. The hollandaise was slightly acidic, with a tiny kick of spice, and overall very creamy, making it the perfect hollandaise. It came with a side of fruit and cost $13 total, which is a decent price for the amount of food you get!

They have a full bar and completely different weekday lunch and dinner menu with plenty of options to try! Definitely a must

Another plus? Rob Scheppy (Celebrity makeup artist and Kardashian guru) was sitting just across the way from us. I love those LA moments when it just hits you that you are living in LA amongst Hollywood’s rich and famous, where dreams come true.

Fig & Olive| West Hollywood

So I’ve wanted to go to Fig & Olive for some time now and finally I did! I went for an early lunch on a weekend. I must say the ambience was so cozy yet chic. There was lots of natural lighting and natural greenery accents throughout the restaurant. There is conveniently valet at the door which is always a plus in WeHo. But lets talk about the food…

So we started off with blood orange mimosas which were pretty impeccable. Can you really go wrong with a mimosa though?

Our waitress brought us out the complimentary bread and olive oils from Italy and Spain. The bread was very light and airy with lots of flavor when dipped into the oils. Overall, a very nice start to the meal.

Then we got the crostini appetizer, which was absolutely delicious. We got the following three:
•Prosciutto, Ricotta, Fig, Olive, Walnut
•Manchego, Fig, Marcona Almond
•Mushroom, Artichoke, Scallion, Parmesan

All were tasty but the prosciutto with ricotta was easily my favorite!

I also got the fig & olive salad. I’ll admit it was just a simple salad that lacked dressing but was nonetheless okay. Next time I will definitely try something other than a salad and indulge in their infamous apple tart.

So would I recommend it? Ofcourse! Fig and Olive is definitely worth a try.

New York!

Okay, so maybe I wasn’t actually in NY but this holographic crop top is just so fab!

image

I’m still all about representing the city I’d die for, LA. But, when it comes to holographic prints,  I just can’t resist! I couldn’t help but customize my look by making the oversized tee into a crop top. I also bought these Topshop boyfriend jeans sans massive rips so I went to business with my scissors to show some more skin!

I see you Malibu

image

I recently spent the day in Malibu and I’ve been dying to go to Cafe Habana. I am so happy I did because their corn was literally delicious! This picture does the yummy little appetizer no justice. Roasted to perfection, smothered in queso fresco and finished with a bit of heat, this was to die for. The tacos were tasty too, but definitely start off with the corn when you go!

image

The views in Malibu are one of a kind and always so dreamy. Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled because you never know who you might spot in Malibu. Spotted: Kim K at Nobu.

Hello Bay Area

I recently went vintage shopping at some of my favorite shops in Downtown San Jose. Black & Brown is a must if you are in the area!

image

I’m obsessed with my Jeffrey Campbell  heeled sandals. JC always has my heart! My floral high-low top is from Wasteland  Haight Ashbury and my high waisted denim shorts are vintage Levi. I’ll be sure to post an up close shot of my vintage Versace bag soon!

image

Philz Coffee is one of Downtown SJ’s most popular coffee shops! Each cup is individually brewed and customized for each customer. Definitely try their most popular drink,  the mint mojito.

Can’t stop wearing my fave Kate Spade sunnies! No shame when it comes to big ol’ bug eyes.

Stay tuned for more posts about my Bay Area adventures. Oh how I love Cali!

Dinner @ Urth Caffe WeHo

image

My most recent outing to Urth Caffe WeHo consisted of a healthy meal and sweet dessert! Urth is one of my favorite places in LA, from the unique menu, perfect coffees, decadent desserts, and the cozy atmosphere.

image

Lattes are always my go to drinks but I also tried an espresso macchiato. Both were great of course! I suppose I was too hungry to snap a pic of the Mediterranean platter and sprout sandwich I ordered. I would definitely recommend the platter for a meal on the lighter side, with great variation,  and a unique taste! The best part of the meal was the NY cheesecake. I’m a tad addicted to cheesecake and I can say that this is hands down one of the most delicious ones I have ever  had.

P.S. The fact that Kylie Jenner is a regular here, well that doesn’t hurt either!
