Saturdays

Woke up super early this morning bc of a sick baby :(. On the plus side it means I was able to grab some food this morning before the rest of the neighborhood woke up.  

I’m obsessed with this kale, edamame salad (trader how’s) and a vanilla latte with half the powder (coffee bean).  🙂

Cheers to the freakin’ weekend!! 

Salt Air on Abbott Kinney

Back in June (whoa time flies fast), I had my 31st birthday brunch at Salt Air on Abbott Kinney with my girlfriends.  The day was nice and hot, the food at Salt Air was perfection, and afterwards we got to shop around and take in the lazy saturday afternoon. ❤

if you haven’t been to salt air, PLEASE check this place out.  the service is incredibly friendly, the food is SUPERB, the drink menu is salivating and you always have a great time.  abbott kinney is my favorite place to hang out these days and big brunches like this is exactly why!

favorite items at Salt Air: lobster roll, blueberry pancakes, roasted chicken, and oysters!

Larchmont Bungalow

This is by far one of my fave brunch spots in LA.  The food, coffee and desserts are always solid; free street parking; and there is a ton of stuff to do afterwards on this street; it’s super baby and dog friendly…what more could you ask for?

i love all their breakfast items, their specialty coffees, salads and sandwiches.  i would kiiinda avoid some of the desserts (you can see what you like and don’t like in the case) and the red velvet pancakes.  i dunno…the red velvet is good but not SOOO amazing you have to drive all the way to larchmont for it.  ya know?

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. =)

Link Restaurant

for my friends surprise engagement brunch (after the proposal) we met at Link in Beverly Hills.  this was the perfect location to have an surprise brunch with bottomless cocktails, chill vibes and really friendly staff.  felt like a “bro” staff that was super nice and gave us a ton of space to celebrate the engagement. really sweet of them to do that.

i would be interested in going back and trying their normal lunch/dinner menu.  not totally impressed with their brunch selections but i loved the bottomless mimosas, sangria and mojitos. =)  next time when baby blair is born i will be indulging in MANY more of those brunches. =D

Here are some pics of the surprise engagement below. ❤  such a fun morning to spend with friends, celebrating a momentous occasion for the sweetest and cutest couple ever!
