dress season.

Hello friends!

With spring quickly creeping up on us, we are finally experiencing all the blooms and…allergies! ๐Ÿ™‚ Summer is almost around the corner, but with this season brings so many occasions (whether it be a wedding, prom, formal, etc.. the list goes on and on) to put on that fancy schmancy dress and feel like a Disney princess (Did I mention that Belle was always my favorite? I have yet to see the new movie though).

I don’t know about you, but Iย always seem to procrastinate ’til the last minute and go crazy trying to find a dress the week before a big occasion.

I was sent a few dresses fromย Ever Prettyย to try and omg (it is acceptable to talk in acronyms on a blog?).. I fell madly in love!

The prices are all very affordable (all under $100), and they fit so nicely! It’s safe to say..details are definitely on point with these.

Yes, I felt like Cinderella in this dress. It must have been that perfect-pastel-royal shade of blue.

I also felt like I embodied “Spring” in the two pieces. The ironic thing? This is the first year in like 5 years that I do not have a wedding to go to! Someone find me an event to wear these to..and quick!

If you’re looking for me, I’ll be over here playing dress-up by my lonesome… I mean how could you resist?

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…
