Black & White

Sunday, June 22, 2014

So minimalist is the trending fashion right now. I've always been an all black or white kinda girl, it's funny how it's all of a sudden the thing to do. Nevertheless I like it, it makes it much easier to find pieces I love! I gotta say I'm really stoked on my earrings in this post! I've been looking for this style earring for some time and when I saw that BaubleBar carried them, I immediately purchased them! They are so classic and feminine and above all a stud type earring, which is my fav. I heart everything about this look!  XO

This dress is super riskayy.. I love it for the summertime! It's very low cut and really can't be worn with a bra. You have to be really content with your boobs to pull this off. I think mainly women with boob jobs wear these types of dresses, but I'm gonna rock it anyway! Im a big fan of my boobs bahaha and I think more and more woman need to be encouraged to love their natural selves. XO

My birthday just passed and it's official I'm 28. I had the most wonderful bday dinner with my friends at Osteria Mozza. If you haven't been, it's a must! The food was so yummy! I mentioned in earlier posts that I wasn't too excited for my bday; mainly it was the idea of getting older. I'm not 30 yet, but it's scary to think I'm only two years away! I think mainly it's scary cuz you feel like you should have accomplished more than you have. I guess 30 could be the new 20 bahahah 
Anywho, I must say that this birthday was a reminder of just how lucky I am to have such amazing friends and family! With all the chaos in my life lately, I found some happiness in that. I truly am fortunate! XO

Guess what! I finally did it, I got myself a gym membership. I 've probably told myself that I'm signing up for a gym membership everyday for the last year. I took my first Zumba class yesterday and boy am I sore today! Power to the chicks that go to the gym on the reg. Having said that, I feel terrible about presenting to you this most delicious food photo diary. I just can't resist; You must be aware of some of the yummy goodness I've been eating lately.

Blu Jam (Melrose location) : Hands down the BEST french toast I've had in a long time! The eggs Benedict was also so delicious. The food here is a great delight! The only negative is the wait for a table, as they are always so busy!  

The Hart and the Hunter:  Wow, the food is incredible! Featured here is the kale salad and the chicken cracklings sandwich, both were excellent. This place has a super small menu but delivers. I wont be surprised if it becomes one of my regular spots. 

9021 PHO (West Hollywood location) : Usually for pho you can go to any whole in wall and you'll be satisfied with what you get. I recently tried this place out, simply because of its proximity to me and I'm glad I did. I really love the broth they use for their pho. Awesome comfort food for a reasonable price. 

Kettle Glazed : This donut place has some good donuts. The maple bacon one is the best in my opinion. The donut featured is the pistachio cronut they only feature on Tuesdays. I didn't particularly love it so I prob wouldn't return for it. Although they do have regular cronuts as well that are pretty decent. I haven't found a good cronut in LA. If you have any suggestions, let me know I'd love to try em out! XO
