Happy Thursday! What a great week it has been! My dear sister flew out to visit for the last week. Since she’s never been to Cali before so we spent nearly every day out and about, site-seeing Los Angeles. For the first few days, I showed her all of my favorite beaches: Santa Monica Pier, […]
Ever since moving to Los Angeles I’ve loved the fact that we live in an area of town where there are so many Asian restaurant options. Vietnamese Pho, Korean BBQ, Japanese, Philippino … so genuine and delicious! It has caused my and hubby’s restaurant-budget to increase a bit – but man, is it worth it! […]
When I was little, my mom used to make the best cookie cakes for me and my siblings’ birthdays. We’d always suggest it over boring cake because…well…cake is boring!

Happy Valentine’s week! My husband and I don’t plan on doing anything, as usual (I’m biased towards telling him I love him every day, versus once a year ;)) but my high school friend from Tennessee is in town! We’ve been hitting a lot of great spots in Los Angeles that Cobalt and I haven’t […]
From blendersmoothies.com Anyone notice the “detox diet trend” lately? The only conclusion I can draw from this popular diet is complete absurdity. If it wasn’t promoted as a weight-loss method, I wouldn’t mind so much simply because the logic behind it kind of, sort of, makes sense. However, the claim that toxins are stored in […]
If you haven’t had the chance, check out the post, Grocery Tips 101: 2 Weeks of Groceries for $20. So because it’s so popular, I thought I’d write a prequel to prepare you for shopping ahead of time. Before Going to the Grocery Store… 1. Clean out your fridge Do you have bits and pieces […]
