Coffee Attic

Happy Wednesday Babes! Today on the blog, I wanted to share a cool new spot for all you coffee lovers. Coffee Attic was kind enough to have me and Matt at their coffee shop located at 7353 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046. Finding parking was easy breezy since they have a parking lot for their customers – can we get an AMEN!! If you live in L.A you know how hard it is to come-by a good parking spot! Their customer service was incredible and loved how friendly and interactive their staff is. They are extremely knowledgeable and give the BEST recommendations. They did not disappoint. There was plenty of sitting space for us to hang out and wait for our food. Something that stood out to me was their workstation. It has a clear glass, which makes it fun for people to stand around and watch their drinks being made. Who knew that making coffee would be considered an art – so entertaining. The food and drinks were just AMAZEBALLS. We were lucky …

Let The Wedding Planning Begin.

Happy Wednesday, It’s been a while since I’ve written something on here! I always forget how much I really enjoy coming on this platform to connect with you guys at a much deeper level. Anyone else feel that way about blogs? As you may know, Matt and I just started planning our wedding. I personally feel like we’re behind on this whole process but I’m glad we’ve taken the time to really sit and think about what we wanted. For starters, Matt and I found our dream venue last Friday! It’s not your traditional venue but we are so happy with it because it has everything we need. It’s a beautiful home located in Thousand Oaks in a very secluded area which is ideal for a wedding. The backyard is spacious and has plenty of room for tables, chairs, a dance floor, DJ, and not to mention space for a bartender and a catering company. Why did you pick a house instead of a banquet hall? When we were shopping around for a venue we …

The Dynamic Trio

You may or may not know, but I’m obsessed with Honey Girl Organics! In fact, Honey Girl is my go-to brand for all things skincare. A few month ago, they sent me their stick trio, and I instantly fell in love. Their stick trio have been a real game-changer for me, and I just love how it makes my skin feel ❤ The set of three are the perfect travel sized pieces for any girl on the go. It’s one of the reasons why I took it on my trip to Thailand. Whether you’re going on a mini road trip or planning a two-week vacation, the trio sticks will keep your skin looking flawless. What exactly are the trio sticks? The stick trio are meant to nourish and protect your skin from everyday harm while giving you the love and care your skin needs. The trio sticks aim to protect, hydrate and provide a good primer for daily use. When do you use your trio sticks? In the morning, I’ll start by applying the H2GO …

My Skincare Routine | Beauty

Looking to kiss your old skin care products goodbye and say hello to radiant looking skin? Then you’ve come to the right place! I started using Honey Girl about three years ago. Funny story, I came across their products because my mom was using their eye cream and facial toner as her skincare routine. I got a little curious and started using it myself. I fell in love instantly. After that, I kept buying other products and fell even more in love with their skin care line. My skin has never looked or felt better. And although I have to thank my momma for my good skin, I knew I had to take good care of it and protect it. Think about it; we put our skin through a lot; from makeup to pollution in the air, our skin needs all the help it can get. Why not do it with safe products that were MADE to feed and preserve your beautiful skin. While cleaning out my makeup and skincare products, I knew I wanted …

How I Got Rhabdomyolysis

On May 29th, my boyfriend, his dad, and a few close friends decided we would do a workout at Crossfit Studio City. The WOD (Work Out of the Day) was dedicated to Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. In remembrance of Lieutenant Murphy, the Crossfit community gets together every Memorial Day and completes one of the toughest workouts, known as, Murph. Murph 1 mile run 100 pulls ups 200 push-ups 300 air squats 1 mile run Post Murph: Tuesday morning, I woke up feeling a little sore but nothing out of the ordinary. I had done Murph three times in my life, so I knew it was common to feel some soreness after an intense workout. It wasn’t until Wednesday and Thursday when I noticed I wasn’t getting better and was beginning to feel sorer as the days progressed. I couldn’t sleep, and I was frustrated that I couldn’t bend my arms or even get myself dressed–Yes, it hurt that much! Matthew and I, even …
