breakfast lunch & dinner

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

You may recall way back when I introduced you to a few fab L.A. restaurants. 
BLD tops the list! Maybe due to the fact that I got to experience it with my friends,
but regardless, I loved every minute of it!

(this was clearly before starting my healthy lifestyle change, which I'll share with you soon! when I go back a salad will be in my future ;))

When I got home Quinn thought it only necessary to practice her flying in the 
middle of the (dead end) street. I obliged.

 It sure was cute, even if it only lasted a few minutes...

Happy almost weekend! Well two days, but a girl can dream...

I love me a good inspiration board! With Spring creeping its flowery head 
around the corner, I'm ready to revamp my style (whether it be repurposing the clothes 
I have in my closet, some new cheap finds, or  a few pricier staples)
and I've been grabbing inspiration left and right. Pinterest, of course, is my #1,
but I find myself lusting over so many fashion blog! Cara LorenPink Peonies
Damsel in Dior, Gal Meets Glam, & Late Afternoon just to name a few  some.
They are all so different but each girl hits it out of the park with their own individual
flare. (It doesn't hurt that their photos are flawless and they're gorgeous, right? 
What are some of your favorite fashion blogs??

I've been procrastinating my butt off so much lately that this blog is seriously lacking. I'm lacking. Lacking inspiration, the will to write, and the time to put into awesome posts that I think you all would enjoy.

But, because this blog is a design blog of sorts, I'd love to start sharing my work here with you.
Sound like a plan? Sometimes it might a be little inspiration or an assignment that took me hours and
hours to perfect. 

Today, it's the latter. Maybe it was her awesomely fabulous Superbowl performance, her documentary that had me in tears (don't laugh), or just that her music makes me think I can belt out notes noone should be able to sing. Whatever the reason...I love Beyonce, as I'm sure most of you do too.

I had an assignment where I was supposed to recreate a preexisting album cover 6 different times. 6 vastly different album covers all about being "Dangerously in Love".


I'm super happy with how they turned out! Which one do you like best?
Happy Monday! xoxo

1. bld (Breakfast Lunch Dinner): I just went for the first time last week and loved everything about it! I'm a big breakfast fan, as I'm sure lots of you are, so I was ecstatic to find that they serve it until 3pm! They also have great sandwiches, salads, and an array of cocktails. Yumm-y.
2. Urth Cafe: This is one of my favorite restaurants of all time (behind anywhere sushi). The environment is so laid back and their menu does not disappoint. Egg sandwiches, chicken pot pie, and not to mention their DELICIOUS fresh pastries and desserts. Their personal cheesecakes (yes you read that right) always eye me right when I walk in the door. Sometimes a girl just can't say no, right? They also have the cutest coffee with designs right there on the foam. An all around fabulous fun place.
3. MILK: With a name like this you better believe it's tasty. I'll be frank with you...I've never really tried their "real" food, just their desserts. All I can say is w.o.w. Classic Birthday Cakes and Carrot Cake with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting? Is this real life? If you ever get a chance to visit L.A. (and don't care about that diet) go go go!
4. Umami Burger: (Let's forget the fact that I ate across the room from Kate Bosworth and they serve milk desserts ^^^) I'm not a big meat lover, let alone burgers, but I am obsessed with Umami. With names like the Ahi Tuna Burger and Manly Burger, and equally creative ingredients, this restaurant always hits it out of the park. I've never been when there wasn't a wait, which must mean something!

I'm back in full swings ladies and gentlemen. You knew I couldn't stay away? Me too :) I'll be posting more regularly. I'm going to try out this thing called "planning ahead".  Wish me luck :)

(just a little peek! believe it or not my camera didn't get a lot of action)

I am back from San Francisco! I can't quite out into words the joy and exhaustion I am experiencing after spending the weekend celebrating and seeing my friends. This is the first time I have done something like this since being 21, and I am so happy I decided to! I feel like I just got home from an adventure. I loved it! Shopping, feasting, clubbing, dancing...the whole 9 yards. I don't get out much these days, what with school taking up most of my time, but being able to work this little get away into my schedule has me feeling somewhat recharged and ready to conquer the world! Funny how a little break can have you feeling your best, huh? I guess that means I should travel all the time now. Sorry mom (and school work) ;)

Happy start of the week loves! xoxo T
