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.

Hello friends,

Move over..there’s a new spot in town! I have heard so much about Pacific City ever since it opened, and I finally had the chance to visit and check it out for myself.



So so many cute places and good ideas all compacted into one location. I mean… how perfect is this champagne bar and flower shop!?! Too perfect.


Not going to lie… Philz Coffee opening there is really what nudged me to finally visit. I had heard so much about Philz and their amazing mint mojito coffees as it started up in the San Francisco area.


However, I never once tried it while living in the city as there were SO many good coffee shops to try out. I finally got to try their iced mint mojito coffee and it was minty heaven in a cup! Go try it.. you won’t regret it.

The perfect combination of eateries and hip shops, there was such cute and picture perfect spots! Pair that with a view of the beautiful beach and live music, yes…. it was perfect indeed.


Til next time…

Xoxo,

Lena
