Hello loves!

Ever since I found out last week that Mr. Holmes Bakehouse was coming to the Tustin District, my inner foodie heart was oh-so-happy. Couldn’t. stop. thinking. about. their. pastries.

I was elated to attend their media event this past Thursday. Located in the Union Market, I finally have a draw to go there. I mean.. would you look at that sign? Say yes to carbs.

The packaging was too gorgeous with their classic “I got baked in LA” gold font written on the side of the boxes. Will we get our own Orange County packaging eventually? Only time will tell…

My favorites were.. the chocolate chunk cookie (because..duh), the matcha mustache cream donut (a grand opening special in collaboration with Milk Box Bar), their new salted caramel apple cake-like creation, and the ferrero rocher croissant (omgah whut?!).

So thank you, Mr. Holmes for moving in quick. I appreciate it.

I was also able to finish it all off with Milk Box Bar’s matcha.. which is apparently the “Whole Foods of the boba world.” All natural teas and boba that is not as unhealthy? I’ll take it. Seeing as I have boba cravings about every other day or so.. I try to limit it to 2x a month. Now I won’t feel quite so bad.

And with that.. I leave you with the motto: Do it for the ‘gram.

2017

Happy New Years loves!

December (my favorite month of the year) passed by quicker than a blink of the eye. Here I am back and ready in action to conquer 2017. I just know that this year will be a good one!  And I promise that I’m back and ready to blog post more than ever.

If you have kept up with my instagram at all you may have seen a few Disney posts. Even though December is “so yesterday” I definitely wanted to share my Disney Birthday experience last month. I got my pass for the very first time a few months ago, and I have definitely been making the most of it ever since. Every extra second that I have has been spent there (it’s definitely the best stress reliever after work with a quick trip..and no #notsponsored :P). They did such a good job at making me feel special on my entry way to the late 20’s.

If you go on your birthday, make sure to get the birthday Disney pin, which you can get at basically every store there. Every single person working there will pretty much be offering you birthday wishes all day long. Exhibit A: “Can I cross the street?” “Yes of course you… HAPPY BIRTHDAY.”

For someone who doesn’t like attention much *cough me* it’s actually pretty hilarious.

Also..the food is oh so amaaaaazing… I definitely have ate my fair share there. My favorite thing I’ve tasted were their seasonal peppermint beignets. SO SO GOOD! Pictured above are one of the about…5 I had that day. Diet fo whuttt?!

Here is the cheesiest goodness to be found in all of the magical land..the Croque Monsieur is more than enough to feed two people. It’s cut into four slices and I’m pretty sure that powdered sugar is the best thing to be sprinkled on top of a sandwich, ever. Who woulda thought?!

Of course it wouldn’t be complete without twirling around in Bug’s Land with characters on stilts! *Birthday Wishes!*

I hope you all had a wonderful New Years and here’s to looking forward to 2017!
