St. Patrick’s Day Dessert

What better way to celebrate than eating a delicious AND healthy dessert? Holidays don’t always have to mean junky food overload!   Check out the original recipe from the very awesome Vegan Yack Attack! I had to make some slight modifications for the ingredients I had on hand, but it still turned out delicious. ^^ Ingredients: Mint Pudding – – 1/2 cup coconut milk – 1/4 cup spinach – 1/4 cup mint – 1.5 TBS coconut sugar – salt to taste – 3 TBS chia seeds Chocolate Pudding – – 2/3 cup coconut milk – 2 TBS cacao powder – 1.5 TBS coconut sugar – salt to taste – 3 TBS chia seeds Extra – – vegan chocolate chips – coconut flakes Instructions: For both puddings (separately of course) – 1. Mix all ingredients, except for the chia seeds, in a blender & puree. 2. Place chia seeds in a bowl, then pour the mixture in and whisk until they’re all combined. Refrigerate for 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally so the chia seeds don’t congeal together. 3. …

Michi Love

  It was cold enough this morning for me to cover my legs, so I finally got to wear my MICHI Illusion leggings that I’ve been dying to don. I’m always on the hunt for unique leggings since I can’t stand wearing jeans 90% of the time, and these are – for lack of a better word – awesome. The detailing and sheer panels are exquisite and flirty enough to add sex appeal without being inappropriate. At 6am and running on 4 hours of sleep, I really couldn’t think much so I threw on an oversized shirt, beanie, sneakers and I was good to go!     +++++++ ON ME: – MICHI Illusion Leggings (here and here) – Free People Zahara Button Down – DIY Wool and the Gang Zion Lion Beanie – Isabel Marant Bazil/Bekett Sneakers – Pamela Love Cage Ring – J.Crew Bracelet FOOD: Break of Dawn – Ranchero Omelette – Green Eggs & Ham +++++ SONG OF THE DAY

Flower Boy Next Door K-drama

Friday Five

1. Flower Boy Next Door  I’ve started back on K-dramas again! This time I decided to go with “Flower Boy Next Door.” I was a little hesitant about this one at first, but I absolutely adore it. It’s a quirky and fun way to relax and de-stress after a long day. 2. ManiaMania Icon Ring – Silver & Amazonite New addition to my collection of ridiculously large rings! This is such an inspiration piece. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw  the ManiaMania collection photos last month. The ring runs a little large on me (sadface) so I wear it with one of my Iosselliani rings to keep it from flying off. 3. Synergy Kombucha  This one is definitely an acquired taste. Kombucha is basically fermented tea, but Synergy takes it a step further with their addition of other healthy ingredients and flavors to make it more bearable. My first taste test came on a little strong, but I’ve grown to love it. My favorite is their “Cherry Chia.” 4. Fujifilm …

Break of Dawn Friday

Us SoCal residents have been blessed with beautiful weather today, and it was the perfect time to eat brunch at one of my favorite restaurants – Break of Dawn. Backed by former Executive Sous Chef 0f the Ritz-Carlton, Dee Nguyen, Break of Dawn’s menu features unique fusions of Asian x Western ingredients. It’s always a little scary to try combinations you’ve never seen before, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised and satisfied every time. The chef terms his dishes “creative comfort food”. I couldn’t agree more. Got your mouth watering yet? ;) As if the food wasn’t reason enough to come, the story behind the opening of this restaurant (read here) makes it that much easier to. It is definitely a business I don’t mind supporting.  

Nutella Crepe

La Galette Creperie

Food, oh food, I love you so. La Galette Creperie, you’ve really appealed to the foodie in me. By recommendation of my dear friend Penny, we trekked up and down the uneven streets of San Clemente (in 90 degree weather) to get to this little gem of a restaurant. Why? Well, crepes. Worth it? Without a doubt. Nestled in between a restaurant here and a boutique there, La Galette Creperie sits in the perfect spot – right across the Pacific Ocean. My Sunday was made of a citrusy drink, a savory crepe, my beautiful friend, and the ever sweeping ocean.
