So fresh and so clean

Image
I have been wanting a new exfoliating scrub after a facialist telling me I need to exfoliate more. No wonder I get dry skin. My girlfriend told me about Fresh sugar face polish and got it for me as a belated birthday gift.

I tried it the other night and love how natural it was. The scrub didn't irritate my sensitive skin and made it feel silky smooth afterward. I definitely recommend this polish.

H&M purse

I got this small H&M purse for such a steal. It's perfect for fitting my wallet, cell phone and keys. At Easter, I did squeeze in baby socks and snacks though. Cute find, huh? I even got my niece one.

Naya Shoes

Shoe Blog wrote about Naya Shoes the other day. I have been browsing their site and love their environmentally-conscious shoes. They're way cute and good for the Earth. Double score! The Zig Zag and Perfecta are way cute for Spring.

Bumble and Bumble

I have heard so many good things about bb line and was excited to get some products at Sephora.

For my trip to Colorado, I decided on travel versions of the gentle shampoo and creme de coco conditioner. The Sephora salesperson suggested these two for my thick dry hair. I tried it out yesterday and love it. I may graduate To larger sizes when we go home.

Nektar Juice Bar

Image
I tried the new Nektar Juice Bar in Corona Del Mar and Costa Mesa recently.

The Popeye's Acai drink was refreshing. You couldn't even taste the spinach mixed with acai. I loved it and definitely recommend it.

Inka Cantina

Image
I saw a new Peruvian restaurant near my local TJ Maxx and had to try. Inka Cantina is located in Fountain Valley.

Last Thursday, I had a family dinner with bebe and my parents. The food was great and we'll definitely return. Prices were good at about $10 a plate. The service was spot on especially for a new restaurant. I love the saltado and how fries are sauteed with meat.




Steak saltado



Chicken

My dad got the picante beef. It reminded me of a Filipino dish but with more spice.





Their crepes were interesting. I have a sweet tooth but found it a little too sweet. Crepes were filled with banana and drizzled with caramel, chocolate, and walnuts. Their inca ice cream had a unique flavor too.

Bebe headbands

Image
Bebe and I went to the Huntington Beach pier to check out the artist faire.

We stumbled on a booth selling headbands and jean skirts for children. Sandy had the cutest headbands for baby girl. I got 3 in different colors. Hopefully she won't pull it off.

Heard about Rock Me clothing on Stroller Traffic. This line of baby boy and girl clothing is snap and zipper free. As a mom, I love that! Try buttoning a onesie with a squirmy bebe gal.

I tried this new enhanced water at the Pamper Me Fabulous event two weekends ago.

How does it work? You twist the colored cap and vitamins sparkle out. You shake it to get the flavor. This one is pink grapefruit. Pretty cool huh?

Family Finds

My girlfriend told me about another deal site called Family Finds. Hurry, go sign up! I just signed up and saw a great deal for Johnny Rockets. $15 for $30 worth of food. Whoo hoo! Here's the deal.

Sweets

Inspired by Yelp's newsletter on sweets, I thought I would share my favorite sweet spots.

Best cupcake:
I'd have to say Frosted in Long Beach. Their lemon, chocolate nitrous, and caramel toffee chocolate cupcakes are delicious. I've never had a bad cupcake there.

Best crepes:
Crepe maker at Irvine Spectrum is my go to spot for crepes. They always load my red and black with tons of nutella and fresh strawberries. It's fresh and fast. The location is perfect because you can grab one as you head to the parking lot.

Best Croissant:
My favorite French bakery cafe, Vie de France, has the best croissant selection. My mom's favorite is the cream cheese while I get either the chocolate or apple croissant. The croissants are always fresh, flaky and flavorful.

R2D2 light toy

Image
I got this awesome Star Wars R2D2 light toy for baby girl at Downtown Disney on Friday. It spins lights and makes cool R2D2 sounds. I think she likes it, though I think I got it more because he's my favorite character from Star Wars.

Fisher Price Corn Popper

Image
I saw this toy at a baby store the other day and it brought some great memories. I remember my little brother pushing this toy as a toddler - a more masculine looking one of course. He had so much fun playing with this noisy toy. It made me think of my baby girl and what kind of toys I would like her to play with.
