augies x a la minute.

Hello loves!

By this time you should know that anywhere I go, I try to find a good coffee shop. To me that doesn’t always necessarily mean the very best coffee, but a good combination between #InteriorGoals and delicious caffeinated beverages.

Having lived in Temecula for several years, I can tell you thatย the one thing that was always missing there was a good coffee shop. You know, a place with good latte art and instaworthy photos.. (*cough*ย not Starbucks).

Ever since I found out that Augies and A La Minute were joining up and sharing a space in the historical buildings of Vail Ranch, I could absolutely not wait. But wait I had to, as it seemed to take forever to open up! Every detail from the hand-painted signs outside to the super cute interior is just perfect.

I mean, ice cream and coffee in one place is really a genius idea. I love the fact that they borrow items from each other to add to the menu. To name one, the affogato featuring Augie’s coffee with A La Minute’s ice cream.

This salted caramel ice cream was so creamy and delicious. I have ย yet to try other flavors because I love this one SO DARN MUCH!

Anyways, that being said…you’ll know where to find me next time I’m in town!

Til next time…

pacific city.

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
