But First, Coffee... LOS ANGELES EDITION


Anyone who knows me, KNOWS I can't live without my cafecito.  You probably do not want to talk to me before I have my morning coffee and I definitely have certain times of the day where I have my routine espresso.  I am aware I drink way too much coffee, but it is something I truly enjoy and can't imagine my days without it lol.  Many people think it is the caffeine that I need, which in reality my body has probably become accustom to, but I genuinely enjoy the taste of great coffee.  If I have to go to Starbucks, I don't mind it, but legit coffee drinkers will tell you, Starbucks is definitely not their favorite!  We like the real deal, hole in the walls and finding gem spots.  I have been to coffee shops all over the world.  I live in Los Angeles, so I definitely have my usual spots I go to on a daily basis and my spots I enjoy when I can.  I listed my fav LA gems below and my orders at each.  Enjoy!

VERVE (Melrose & 3rd Street)
          My favorite coffee eva!  I love bringing my laptop here to do work outside at the Melrose location.  It's the cutest coffee shop with outdoor seating.  Since we have always have great weather in LA, I love working outside than in my office!

My Order:  Hot or Iced Soy Latte with cinnamon powder stirred in.
                   *They have vegan pastries from Erin McKenna's bakery which I love since I am dairy free!  Try the vegan donuts or breads (so yummy!)



AHARON COFFEE (Beverly Hills)
          They are so kind here and will literally make you anything you want!  They also have really yummy and cool drinks they are known for here!

My Order: Iced Oat Milk Latte with a cinnamon boost and 1 oz sugar free vanilla & add an extra shot. 


SHAKY ALIBI (Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles)
          They are known for their homemade waffles.  They are SO GOOD! They are my splurge/ cheat day item every now and then.  Their coffee is also next level.  

My Order: Iced Oat Milk Latte



NESPRESSO  (Beverly Hills)
           I have a Nespresso machine at my place that I use to make my morning coffee everyday.  I love their Roma, Dulsao and Vanilla pods, as well as their Vertuo double espresso pods!  I come in to this location for afternoon coffee with my mom and sister a lot! 

My Order:  Hot Rice Milk Latte with lots of cinnamon stirred in!



LA COLUMBE  (Beverly Hills)
          I grab my morning coffee at work here pretty much everyday because it is around the corner. I love that they have hemp milk here, which is my favorite milk alternative!

My Order: Hemp Milk Latte or Cold Brew with a splash of hemp milk.






ALFRED COFFEE  (Beverly Hills)
          I get coffee here a lot too when I'm working nearby.  They are known for their iced vanilla lattes, so you have to try them!

My Order: Iced Vanilla Latte with oat milk and only 1 pump of vanilla. 






THE GARDEN BAR @ THE MONTAGE HOTEL  (Beverly Hills)
          I love this lounge and enjoying an afternoon coffee here!  They have small bites and desserts that are so yummy too! If I am trying to stay healthy, I order their fruit plate.  If I have a sweet tooth, I definitely get their cookies or grilled peaches with cream (so good!)  

My Order: Soy Latte with cinnamon steamed in the milk

PLAYA DEL CARMEN

We went to Mexico! My girls, my sis and I wanted to take a little bday trip after celebrating my bday in Los Angeles to Mexico.  We decided to go to Playa Del Carmen because we all have never been.  Even though we were missing the fourth member of our crew last minute (but for a good reason), we went and had a blast!  I am not a big drinker, but when I do drink, I drink tequila!  The beaches and sunsets were so beautiful!  We stayed at the Thompson Hotel, which I loved!  It was super cute and literally in the middle of everything, so we walked everywhere, which was very convenient.  There was also a Catch on the rooftop (which we love).  We pretty much live at that restaurant and eat their branzino 3x a week in Los Angeles, so it was fun to visit in Playa Del Carmen as well.  We mainly drank, ate, danced and drank again lol, so I decided to do a mini snap vlog, because that was pretty much all to see besides the beaches.  I REALLY wanted to visit the ruins and swim in the cenotes, but we were so tired towards the end of trip, we couldn't make it and just chilled at our pool instead.  Even though I'm still recovering (I'm getting old), it was such a nice little getaway with my girls! Love you chicas!

NYC FITS

Just got back to LA from an amazing trip to New York! I feel so blessed to be able to conduct my business and work in cities I love! I love New York this time of year too because it is so festive and you just feel the Holiday spirit everywhere.  Even though it is literally an ice cube there (I almost froze) it is definitely worth battling the cold for the Christmas vibes.  My NYC vlog is in the works, so stay tuned to see where we ate, explored, ate again (lol) and shopped!  Until then, I posted all the outfits I wore during my trip with links below.  Hope you like them and hope everyone had a happy holiday!

Swing Yo Necklace Rounddd

I love playing around with jewelry, just as much as I do with clothes.  I wore this backless dress and decided to jazz it up a bit by taking a cross pendant and wearing it backwards.  I love this trend especially with backless sweaters, dresses, tops etc.  You can also pile on more than one for a chunky layered look!  The one I am wearing is from Soraya By Rozi, but I have also listed some other cute ones below, along with outfit details!

Blush & Khaki

Hi dolls! So I am in the process of editing my blog, as I want it to truly reflect my style and personality much more.  I am also going to be sharing my outfits regularly, so you can shop them all directly here!  I wanted to share with you an outfit I wore the other day.  I mixed together two of my favorite colors, blush and khaki!  I love how they compliment one another.  Anyone who knows me knows that I am always changing up my style.  I think you should have fun with fashion and not take it so seriously.  As the seasons change, I also love mixing new silhouettes.  We've been having strange weather in LA, one day freezing and one day boiling!  This outfit was perfect because I had the bomber when it got chilly at night.  I have linked my entire outfit below.  Let me know what you think babes & thank you for visiting my blog!

Miami Vibes

Hi dolls! I just came back from a much needed getaway in Miami!  The weather was amazing (missed the storm), which means I got to be poolside and beachside everyday.  It was so nice to escape for a bit and do nothing while getting tan.  Below are some bikinis I wore and the links to buy them.  What are your favorite bikinis you will be wearing this summer?
