LA Life // Hello Kitty Cafe in Glendale

A fun fact about me - the first apartment I had all on my own after graduating college featured several Hello Kitty items. In fact, my whole kitchen was Hello Kitty themed (thanks to Target) with a microwave, coffee pot, hand mixer, crock pot and toaster.

Sadly, after about a year the microwave caught fire. Let me tell you, flames out of Hello Kitty's eyes is a scary, scary sight! And unfortunately, the rest of the appliances didn't make it with me on our cross country drive. As much as Ryan tolerated the Hello Kitty toast, I'm pretty sure he was happy about this - hah!

So, when I saw the Hello Kitty Cafe mobile truck was going to be in Glendale this weekend, I knew it would be the Hello Kitty fix I needed. It was parked at the Glendale Galleria on Saturday from around 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. but I didn't get there until 4:30ish.

Luckily when I got there, the line wasn't as long as I had previously seen on Twitter, but I still had to wait about 15-20 minutes. I ordered the Hello Kitty cookies and macarons as well as a coffee mug. The also had doughnuts and petit four cakes, but I didn't want to splurge too much.

The cookies were basic sugar cookies that were a little hard for my taste, but the macaroons were actually really good! It was actually my first time in Glendale as well and I enjoyed walking around the Galleria (and picking up a jacket at Forever 21)!

While this truck only had desserts, they also opened a Hello Kitty Cafe "pop-up shop" with more menu items in Irvine this weekend as well. I'm not sure how long it'll be there, but I may need to make a trip as well...

Style // 4th of July in Cutoff & Crop Tops

Hope you all had a good long weekend with lots of fun & sun!

I know I sure did! The first two days of the weekend I just took it easy, watched some Netflix and hung around. But on Monday, Ryan and I the day off together (which is rare these days) and decided to take full advantage of it.

We started with friends & family at Dockweiler State Beach with an ocean-side cookout, some swimming in the Pacific, and a whole lot of sun! 

I tried to be patriotic, but I don't own a lot of red. So instead I threw on a cute crop top, some denim cutoffs from Old Navy (currently on sale), and painted my toenails red (close enough)! Also, I'm loving this new scalloped swimsuit I also picked up during their 40% off sale a few weeks ago.


After a few hours at the beach, we met up with some other friends and climbed to the top of Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook a.k.a. the Culver City Stairs, to watch the Culver City fireworks show. 

The cool thing about being up at the top though is we could actually see firework shows going off all around the city! It was pretty amazing!



At the end of the night, we came home and watched the season finale of The Mindy Project - that ending! I'm not sure how I feel about the finale, but I do know I had a good 4th of July!

Music // Summer re(MIX) 2016


Hey guys! Happy Friday & long weekend & 4th of July!

Hope you're all having a good summer so far. I wanted to share a Summer Party Playlist I've put together recently. Some are popular songs right now, some are summer classics, and some are cool remixes.

I'll be updating throughout the summer so if you have any good recommendations, let me know in the comments!
