Top 5: Food&Drink Obsession

1. Porto’s Bakery Fruit Tart Cake   Okay. This cake. Will change your life. It’s not the best picture, and I hate putting up pictures that I don’t LOVE on my blog, but this cake was so delicious it was worth it. My friend had it for her birthday a couple months ago and I’m only raving about it now because I found out that a Porto’s (which is where […]

Barcelona Day Three: Parc Guell

Our main event for today was Parc Guell, but our tickets to “the bench” were for much later in the day, so we grabbed a BIG breakfast and headed over to the Picasso museum. Jackie was super excited about taking us to a very popular “brunch” place called Milk. But it probably had a SUPER long wait, and we were starving by the time we got a start to our […]

February Playlist

1. The little known beautiful ballad: When I Fall – Lizz Wright I first heard this song randomly on a spotify playlist that I was listening to as I fell asleep. I was right on the brink of sleeping when I heard the beautiful intro and it woke me up like THAT. Then Lizz Wright’s beautiful jazzy voice came on and I was in love. 2. The YouTube find: Okay, […]

Bye Bye from Jessica

Reality is catching up to me and I just don’t have the time/confidence to produce the quality that this blog deserves anymore. So, I’m taking a step back and Tracie is taking over CTC.

Fall Layers

Although it’s December which is typically considered winter, it’s technically still fall as the winter solstice hasn’t passed JUSTTTT yet. In California, “cold weather” means it’s cold only when the sun isn’t around. So daytime? Hot. Nightime? COLD. So this post features layers: fall layers. I love cold weather. I love plaid. I love coffee. This post has so many of my favorite things rolled in one. Especially for us in […]

The Lattes in Vegas

We celebrated Jess’ 22nd in Vegas and we did it our way. Traveling between the four of us is one of the things we love most! But we aren’t your typical Vegas-goers. Most people might go to a club, gamble, and go crazy on the strip. But, we went for one day of eating and shopping (and alright..maybe a little crazy). Jess enjoying a Ragin’ Bull Fat Tuesday, and a […]
