Best Valentine’s Gift for Him | Carnivore Club Meat Bouquet

Finding a Valentine’s day gift for your boyfriend or husband can be tricky, but I found that nothing says ‘I love you’ like a bouquet of meat.  This is the ultimate valentines gift for your sweetheart because why should you be the only one receiving flowers?  I’ve always felt short handed being the only one in the relationship getting flowers for Valentine’s Day but with Carnivore Club’s Meat Bouquet, I can share my love too. A bouquet includes: 20 long stem jerky sticks. – 5 Elk Sticks – 5 Buffalo Sticks – 5 Mild Venison Sticks – 5 Hot Venison…

Habana – Brunch Buffet

LOCATED IN THE IRVINE SPECTRUM, CAlFORNIA EXECUTIVE CHEF ALEX MORENO Takes place only on Sunday’s at 10AM-3PM I find it hard to find a great brunch buffet in Orange County California. I’ve been to many and always left let-down. But to great news, Habana has just opened it’s newest location at The Irvine Spectrum. A luxurious brunch buffet with menu inspired by Cuban-fare. The restaurant itself was bright and airy with a sweet romantic ambiance. As you sit down, you pass by the amazing brunch bar where they serve endless delectables all for grabs with their brunch buffet. Grid Photos courtesy of…

Mr. Holmes Bakehouse Grand Opening in Larchmont Village

Mr. Holmes Bakehouse is a one of a kind bakery with a sweet selection of baked goods. While they have a couple locations open around in California, they finally opened up a new one in Larchmont Village! (248 N Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90004) Had a great time trying out pastries such as Green Tea Matcha Croissants, Strawberry Jelly Jam Croissants, Savory Danish’s with Bacon, and so much more. What I liked most about their pastries was that they wasn’t too sweet even though they had a lot of other sweet ingredients (such as the matcha, jam, chocolate, etc.) that were integrated. The pastries were light and crispy and most importantly I could tell they were extremely fresh. Next time you’re in town, I recommend that you stop by Mr. Holmes for a box!

Zero Degrees Co – The Travel Bottle Series

Have you heard of this new boba craze? It’s called Zero Degrees (@zerodegreesco) and they have two locations: Westminster and in the City of Industry. The beauty in their Boba Tea is that you can order them in cute containers like the *NEW* Travel Bottle Series (@thetravelbottle),  Half and Half split cups (Yes, this means you can have two different boba drinks in one.), and even drink friendly Mason Jars. This weekend they released the new Travel Bottle : a glass bottle with a beautiful location printed onto them. The travel bottle is to promote us all to travel more…

My Experience at the Museum of Ice Cream

Do you dream of ice cream? Well, if you do, you’re in luck because the Museum of Ice Cream is in town. More specifically, in Los Angeles, CA.  I’m sure you’ve seen these ice cream photos all over your social media feed by now, but here was my personal take on the Museum of Ice Cream. Located in Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles (2018 E 7th Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90021) You’ll notice, in the dark and dull district there is a new bright shining pink building. You just can’t miss it. They provided a paid valet parking lot right…

YSABEL West Hollywood, CA

YSABEL (West Hollywood, CA) 945 N Fairfax Ave West Hollywood, CA 90046 (323) 366-2940 Ysabel is a lively cocktail bar with a mixology focus that serves out of a back and front bar, plus an outdoor patio. It’s a little hard to find the restaurant at first because there is no giant sign with the name on it. It is a plain white building. Valet parking is $7. We had reservations at 8PM (I recommend making a reservation, we went on a Thursday night and it was really packed.) The venue itself is dark, and dimly lit with string lights…

Nacho Heaven at The Cove Bar in Disney California Adventures

The Cove Bar – Disney California Adventure Park 1313 S. Disneyland Dr., Anaheim, CA 92802 Phone: (714) 781-3463 (Neverland Tea, California Fun-Wheel, Raspberry Pina Colada) Okay, so… To be honest… Running around Disney California Adventures with thousands of little mis-behaving children, crazy parents, and long waits in line for the rides can drive a 25 year old like me insane. So I like to hit the cove bar to get a few (beautiful but surprisingly extremely strong cocktails) to make my day at Disney a lot easier to handle. There is usually already a line just to eat/drink at the Cove…
