caramel macchiato.  need i say more?  this 10,000 calorie venti is the ultimate indulgence.  i got a free birthday drink from starbucks and decided to order the most decadent drink i could think of (plus a few extra decaf shots to even out the sweetness).

xoxo oh myy, cannot wait until the next birthday! =D

Thirsty Thursday

20150710_132117Jamba Juice was one of my big pregnancy cravings, and now, it’s still derrrricious! =)  for my birthday this year, Jamba gave me a free small drink of my choice!  i chose the tropical colada (aka pina colada) and it really hit the spot.  this summer has been so overcast, humid and hot~~ i really needed a little cool down while walking around century city mall with my little one. <3

if you haven’t tried the new pina colada drinks i definitely recommend em!  feels like all you need is a little rum and the beach. =D

Red, White and Blue

IMG_4353in honor of fourth of july, the blairs are celebrating with red, white and blue yogurt parfaits!  xoxo  LOVE eating these babies for breakfast.

our include: strawberry greek yogurt, blueberries, strawberries, banana slices and honey bunches of oats cereal. =)

(we always use cereal instead of granola~ tastes really good i think!)

Happy Fourth!! xoxo

 

Specialty Coffee on Abbott Kinney

i’m no coffee snob,  but when coffee is made well  you really can’t help but savor each sip and feel all giddy inside.  two of my favorite places to grab specialty slow drip coffee are Blue Bottle and Intelligentcia.  TO DIE FOR drinks.  Iced Coffee, Lattes, you name it… your taste buds will be doing a happy dance. =)

A few weeks back my girlfriends and I went to our favorite place in downtown LA: Hero Shop.  Banh mi sandwiches and coconut bowls by day, chicken and lamb rice bowls by night!  This charming place is our go-to stop when we’re all together. <3

We ordered quite a table full of goodies: pork belly cocunut bowl, bbq pork banh mi, lamb rice bowl and chicken rice bowl.  ALL were to die for of course.  My favorite is always the lamb and rice with extra white sauce. xx

If you’re in the downtown area or looking for some bomb ass food~ check out Hero Shop/Yero Shop!

Salt and Straw on Larchmont

this was my second visit to salt and and straw recently and i liked it just as much as the first.  there are definitely some flavors that were NOT my favorites, but i’m obsessed with anything strawberry right now.  They have a toasted strawberry with roasted white chocolate right now that is TO DIE FOR esp on a waffle cone. <3

other recs: stumptown coffee is freaking amazing and so is their strawberry sorbet.  *droool*

salt and straw is the perfect place to go to this summer when the weather is hot.  larchmont has a ton of delicious brunch spots, cute stores and the best nail salon across the way.  i highly recommend taking a saturday morning and spending it on this block! xo
