Hello to my working sidebar and hello to you! This week was sups cool because my sorority little aka best sisterfriend/faith filled/go with the flow/trendy boss -bff was visiting me from the motherland. By motherland I am referring to Chicago were this wonderful friendship was born.
She came a hot second after I finished my first of 4 rounds of finals before finishing graduate school and BOY was I happy to not think about school like at all. We basically caught up, explored my LA, and ate some good stuff.
Here are some of my favorites!
I’ve been wanting to try Bulletproof Coffee for a while now to see how it tasted. It was ok- probably wouldn’t have it again.
We headed down to meet my best friend Sarah and her sister Mich at their Newport beach house for the full day and night with Cafe Gratitude in our minds for dinner. We tried a new-to-me drink called “Beets by J”. Can I have a pitcher of this stuff? It was beet juice, tequila, OJ, and some other stuff that tasted magical. Cheers!
Sarah had their famous margarita and she loved her choice too! We then had to order my favorite dish- the Samosas to share. Ugh I will never get tired of these spicy/tender/rich/tangy things. They were gone in 10 seconds flat.
Next up was my other favorite. Its called the “Magical” and is a DELISH burger that came with some perfect sweet potato fried with a tangy ketchup thing. I was sad to see it go.
Sarah hates this pic- sorry but my burger looks so good how could I not?
After a delish meal and great conversation we went home to watch a movie and crash before waking up to some fresh baked cinnamon rolls. The brand that makes them is called Immaculate Baking.
So warm. So gooey. PJs and HGTV too with some beach fog- amen to that.
Dani and I said bye to Sarah and Mich and headed off to Juice Served Here in Newport to try some juices and shots because Dani said “its such a California thing to do” I agreed and have been meaning to stop by!
So heres the thing. We should have gotten a juice with some fruit in it because it was just too green for me. I felt like I was drinking grass and kale at the same time and did not enjoy it after like 4 sips.
We left after Juice Served Here and headed to G-dale to get the brows done. Dani also had to try pressed. So we did that.
We headed home for some Whole Foods pizza and veggies before we went ham on Tacos at our family favorite Mexican place.
Then topped off the night with margs and veggie tacos with guac, black beans, and pico!
3 episodes of Gilmore Girls later we went to bed and had one last stop in the am. Alfred’s coffee! I also got 1 Compartez chocolate bar made with dark chocolate, sea salt, and balsamic vinegar- I had to. I haven’t opened it yet but I’m excited to! I got an iced half caf Americano with some almond milk- my usual order. We walked around Melrose and yes I did take a photo on the pink wall.
