I hope you all had a great weekend! Also, I officially survived my first week of summer break. I apologize for being absent last week but I needed to take some time to adjust to the kids being home and my husband had a business trip last week so there was just too much going on. We had big plans for Father’s Day weekend however, none of it ended up happening. Somehow we ended up grabbing brunch at a street cafe called Dinette in Echo Park while deciding what to do for the day. The food at was unreal, see below. Even the girls liked it and they’re pretty picky. After brunch we somehow found our way out to Santa Monica.
On this day 15 years ago, I graduated high school. It’s so crazy to think about! That being said, a lot has changed since then. One thing has remained the same though and that is my love for Abercrombie & Fitch. It was the cool place to shop in high school but my parents thought it was too expensive so I had to save my own money to buy anything there. To this day, it is still one of my favorite places to shop.
Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions about tips for growing your Instagram account. I wouldn’t call myself an expert on this topic by any means. However, I can share with you a few tips that have helped me along the way. When I first started my blog and Instagram it was more fitness and lifestyle focused but a lot has changed since then (obviously).
It has been quite a while since I’ve shared a recipe around here. This Quinoa Power Bowl recipe is just too good not to pass along. I’m all for quick and easy meals and this one doesn’t disappoint. This dish also requires minimal ingredients and skill to prepare. Quinoa is a higher protein rice alternative and it’s also gluten free. I am not gluten intolerant but my husband does have a mild sensitivity to it. We try to mix in some gluten free and vegetarian options into our diet to combat any issues.
I hope everyone had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend. I definitely did! The weather was absolutely perfect this weekend so on Saturday we headed out to the beach. We also did some shopping and barbecuing of course! Click here to shop some of the awesome sales from this weekend, this one is still going until 6/3. As I’m sure you all know, we love going to Santa Barbara, but we decided to go somewhere different this weekend. Carpinteria is half way in between Ventura and Santa Barbara and is the cutest little beach city.
