when life gives you lemons.

Hi friends!

Life finally seems to be slowing down (look I’m doing better at blog posting already!) and the sun is finally beginning to relent. Very slightly though, very slightly.

I managed to have some time exploring the area around me and the new insta-worthy spots that I have been wanting to see for quite a while. You already know that I wouldn’t leave you out of the fun.

First stop… Main Squeeze..

I know, I know.. the pictures speak for themselves. This entire shop is every insta-lover’s dream. That lemon wallpaper is PERF.

Honestly, there was such a wide variety of items to try.. but I had to try the green thai tea with green boba. GREEN? Yes, and it tasted like normal boba.

I’ll definitely have to come back and try their lemonade combinations. Apparently that’s what they’re known for. Go figure!

After taking about a bajillion pictures and stories and snaps, I was off to the next stop..

Aussie Bean.. located in the circle at Orange. Now, this isn’t new to the block but this has been on my list for quite some time. One step in and I had questioned why I hadn’t made my way in before. What is life?!

The exposed brick wall and rustic-ness (there I go making up new words again) were my favorite part of the shop.

Although they do also make very refreshing beverages on a hot summer’s day. 🙂

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!
