Cinderella Cakes

Image
If you look up Cinderella Cakes, you'll find Yelpers give mixed reviews. Some say the best cupcakes around to calling it dry and pricy. I had to form an opinion myself so went to their Anaheim location and got a luscious lemon flavor. I did find the $4.50 price tag a little steep but I guess it is because it is bigger than most cupcakes. I tried it and it was good but not sure about going out of my way to get a cupcake there.

Hatam Restaurant

Image
My mom took me to a restaurant she used to go to with her professor in Anaheim. Hatam served delicious Persian food. The lunch was affordable too.

My mom got chicken shish kabob while I got Beresk polo - rice with chicken and barbarries. My baby enjoyed the hummus and pita bread the most and got a food coma afterwards. Haha

Bubba Sweets

I finally tried this cupcakery in Huntington Beach. I have been wanting to use my free cupcake card that I got at The little Gym.

Pictured are the lemon and sea salt caramel. Both are delicious. My little one liked the lemon one. I think I'll definitely return.

Harajuku for Target

Image
I spotted this cute kimono style romper at Target. Too bad they didn't have any 24 mos sizes or my little one would have got a new outfit. How adorable Is that mermaid!

Seafood Cove

Image
I had a pregnancy craving the other night and forced my mom and babes to din at my favorite Chinese restaurant - Seafood Cove. I had been wanting Hong Kong style chow mein with the crispy noodles and gravy forever. Yum yum! We also ordered Salt and pepper shrimp. I wasn't sure if it was proper for me to be eating the shrimp head so had to decapitate the poor shrimps. What a delicious meal!

Seafood Cove is on Westminster and Newland in Westminster. Check it out!

Baby Lips

Image
I've seen magazine ads for Baby Lips and how it can repair your lips in four weeks. Count me in!

How come everytime I look for it that it's sold out? Ughh!

Nordstroms Rack beauty buys

Image
I have mentioned before Nordstrom Rack has great deals on beauty products. I went this weekend to buy birthday presents. I was able to snag a few things for myself, like Stila eye pencils and Smashbox lip laquer. Can't wait to open these up and use 'em.

Basq NYC Illipe body butter

Image
I bought this new body butter since I need to take care of my skin and hopefully not get stretch marks due to pregnancy. This body butter has a subtle floral scent and is really thick. It is ultra moisturizing and I haven't had itchy belly yet wearing it.

Highly recommend this!

Riding boots

I am digging Kourtney Kardashian's Chanel riding boots, but of course can't afford the high price tag. If you Google chanel riding boots kourtney, you'll see lots of results. Check out this link for more info.

Laura Mercier Lip Silk

Image
Ohmigoodness, I can't believe I almost forgot about this lip treatment. This was my go-to product in the 90's. It always prepped my lips for lip liner and lipstick back in the day. My lips have been chapped this winter so this is the perfect treatment. Yay!

I can't live without

...my Fresh Sugar Honey Lip Treatment. Anything from the Fresh line seems to be awesome. This Honey color gives me a little nude lip that I love so I don't look so hum drum.

Sprinkles

Image
Last Thursday, my mom and I got our favorite treat in Newport Beach. One dark chocolate for her and lemon for me. I was stoked to get a free one by saying their twitter word - pick me up. I chose banana dark chocolate. Mmm!

A new flavor started yesterday. Blake Lively from Gossip Girl has a s'more flavor for charity. Can't wait to try!

Donate make up

I saw this great post Bella Sugar. It named organizations to donate make up. Now, who doesn't have samples and unused make up lying around?

Coyote Grill

Image
Today, we had lunch in South Laguna. I had wanted Thai but the restaurant was too busy. Luckily, I spotted Coyote Grill. Yum, I haven't had Mexican food forever!

My mom and I split the steak fajitas







Baby got chicken tacos but I gave her rice and chicken.



Overall, the food was good and filling but the view was amazing. You can't beat an ocean view in a nice sunny day. The patio did get a little warm but thank goodness they had ceiling fans.

Urban Decay Revolution

I think the most stylish Kardashian is Kourtney and love how she is a mom and can rock red lips. I got Urban Decay's Revolution lipstick for Christmas and did the classic red lip on New Years Eve.

Instagram

My brother told me about instagram last month. It's a mix of twitter and photo sharing. I love that I can upload a photo and edit it with a pre-made filter. Then you share it with your followers and twitter. It's a quick and easy way to post new pictures of my baby or whatever I think is cool. It's cool you can like a photo and leave comments too. Even Mr. President has joined instagram via Mashable.

Montanya Spa

Image
On Monday, I got some much needed pampering and went to Montanya Spa in Santa Ana. This hidden spa is right near Bowers Museum. The outdoor garden is so tranquil and serene. The interior is decorated with green and dark wood. My maternity massage with Cara was heavenly. I loved that i got The meditation room and locker room to myself. I definitely will be returning.

Nuance Leave In conditioner

Image
I've been having dry ends since coming back from the Philippines and couldn't take it anymore. I got this Nuance leave in conditioner from Salma Hayek's CVS brand. It's been great on my hair this whole week I have been using it.

Highly recommend it!
