Madrid Day One (Spain Day Four)

This day was probably the most uneventful of our trip. We spent a large part of our morning/afternoon going to the train station, taking the train from Barcelona to Madrid and then settling into our hotel room. Making it to our hotel was quite the adventure and long story short, we spent a night in a small town outside of Madrid called Pinto. Pinto was a quiet, totally normal little […]

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 […]

Barcelona Day Two

Day Two: After 20 hours of travel time, and a very FULL first day in Barcelona, we knocked out for the night. Minus Jackie. She went out and partied the night away until 4 am, crazy girl. We were exhausted and all got a late jump on the morning–Tiff and I woke up at 11 am. To start the day, Jackie made plans for her mother (and us) to meet […]

An Intro to Spain, Barcelona Day One

Soooo, I recently spent a week in Spain. NBD. Actually, it was a HUGE deal. This was my first time in Europe and I had no idea what to expect. All I had to go off of were the beautiful movie scenes and pictures in history books so I probably had a very romanticized version of what Spain was going to look like. Well, Spain did not disappoint. I took more than […]

Rose Park Roasters in a Breezy Blouse

I have been feeling incredibly uninspired lately. I have no clue why, so I’ve been lagging on the posts and letting a lot of drafts just sit there. So this is a late outfit post, but better late than never!! As promised, I went back to Rose Park Roasters. Their decor is so adorable! It’s all wood with pops of this nice teal/skyblue. I ordered Rose Park Roasters’ single origins […]

March Playlist

1. Throwback Song: Brown Eyed Girl-Van Morrison I was listening to KROQ when this song came on, and it’s just one of those classics that take you to a certain place and makes you subtly smile when you listen to it. It’s a nostalgic, sometimes sad song, but I’ve always loved it because it’s also a song about singing (: 2. The Top 40 Fave: Sugar-Maroon 5 This song came […]

Skylight Gardens Brunch

I met up with some of my favorite girls last Saturday at this lovely place called Skylight Gardens in Westwood. I’ve been here a handful of times, and literally every experience has been amazing. The servers are always awesome, the food tastes great, it’s never TOO crowded, and when you have bottomless mimosas, I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be a great time. Skylights Gardens is a very appropriate name for this […]

Earth Tones at Portfolio Coffeehouse

Long Beach has such awesome coffeehouses and little restaurants all within a reasonable distance. Rose and I had originally planned on going to Lord Windsor Roasters on 3rd street, and although they are still open during construction, it doesn’t make it an ideal place to chill and have a coffee with your friend. So we drove a little further on 3rd street and ran into Rose Park Roasters, which looked SUPER […]

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, […]

The Attic on Broadway

The Attic is this wonderful little place on Broadway St. in Long Beach. If you’re not looking out for it, you may miss it because it looks kind of like a little house. They’re really famous for their bloody marys and if you look at their bloody mary menu, it’s quite extensive. They have all sorts of different add-ons and garnishes; almost every table around us was sipping on one […]
