Dear coffee shops of Southern California,

THANK YOU for opening so many new doors that are aesthetically at a ten this year, you are making my heart very happy.

Hi friends! I had the chance to finally check out a coffee shop that has been open for a bit but I have been wanting to visit in forever! Located in downtown Whittier, this general store (which sells the cutest things I might add) + coffee combo is seriously the best! They serve Stumptown coffee and have baked goods from Donut Snob and Sugarbloom Bakery. All under one roof?! Yes, almost too good to be true.

So, not only do they have all these items, but they have this amazing thing called a “Snob Latte”… and yes, it’s the perfect combo! A beverage of your choice and the perfect mini donut snob donut on top. I got the iced matcha latte with a matcha donut on top. Because there’s no such thing as TOO much matcha amirite? ­čśë

The coffee shop is totally any plant lover’s dream, as there is an amazing hanging plant wall in the front to greet you, as well as a huge hanging succulent wall inside. My inner plant lady was oh so very happy.

Of course, we had to add some savory to the menu. These pastries were the kimchi spam musubi and the ham and cheese with the cutest little pickle pinned on the top! Look closely and you’ll be able to see it. It was SO good.

Til next time…

new year, new you

Hello loves!

With the first month of the year almost being finished,┬áI am still trying to get used to this whole 2017 thing!┬áSomething┬áthat I don’t usually do is make New Year resolutions. I don’t like to make promises I can’t keep.

One┬áthing that I want to do is improve my physical fitness this year bc let’s be honest… running ain’t my thing. However, I usually like to go on walks to get myself moving.It’s always hard finding shoes that stay comfortable throughout the hours.

Not to fear guys.. I found them! I partnered up with Skechers to discover my absolute favorite from their new sport collection.

I’ll be honest.. these shoes are totally comfortable and perfect for any type of physical activity I may see myself doing in the near future. I may also have to bring them along on my hikes in Oregon coming up soon! And hey.. I totally look athletic.

They also have the cutest casual shoes.. these right here come with a whole lotta sparkly and a tiny platform heel. LOVE!

Til next time..
