Ebisu take out

I spent almost $25 on lunch yesterday. Can you believe it? I think I had another case of "don't go to the grocery store when you're hungry." Ebisu supermarket in fountain valley is the go to grocery for Japanese food. I always forget they have a sushi take out until my brother reminded me. I needed to grab a quick lunch while my brother watched the baby nap, so went to ebisu. I grabbed the salmon bento and nigiri & sushi combo for me, plus a poke bowl for my bro. I got a can of guava passionfruit juice to wash it down. When i got home, we feasted like kings. Yum! I loved how the sushi was so fresh And restaurant like. Here's a glimpse of their selection: - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

Banzai Bowl

After my allergist appointment this morning, I went to banzai bowl nearby. I have been obsessed with acai bowls for a couple weeks now, from jamba juice acai topper to keane's acai energy bowl. The shark cove I ordered is the best acai bowl I've ever had. It was topped with goji berries, strawberries, blueberries, bananas, and granola. I love that the smoothie was made with almond milk. Yum! Yelp'ers complain about the wait time but my wait for my to go order wasn't too bad. You should definitely check out this 17th street spot in Newport-Mesa! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

I was reading my Westways magazine and saw two cool family friendly events happening this Sunday. Kite festival in seal beach. I went one time and made my own kite. Very cool! Sandcastle contest in corona del mar. I attended one year and saw elaborate castles. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

Sweet & Saucy Shop

Baby and I were in long beach on Friday and yelp'ed a cupcake place. We went to sweet & saucy. This store was located In a busy strip mall with lots of parking. The banner up front announced they were on an episode of fabulous cakes in august. How cool! This cupcakery was different. Their cupcakes were featured on cake stands versus the normal line em up style you see at other places. They also had small variety but offered cookies, mini cupcakes, and cake pops. I'll have to try cake pops next time. All the signage pointed out they're popular for weddings. How neat! I decided on four flavors to take home: red velvet, candy bar, lemon and Chocolate nutella. So far I like red velvet. It has a hint of chocolate and real cream cheese frosting. The candy bar one has peanut butter frosting drizzled with caramel and a vanilla cake filled with chocolate. It's too snicker's bar for me. I try to keep liking peanut butter but no go. Up next are the chocolate nutella

Cupcake drool bib

I was at Carter's this week buying a present and couldn't resist buying this cute cupcake drool bib. It's made of Terry like towel material and perfect to wipe up my drooling baby when I don't have a burp cloth. Not bad for $2.80! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

I can't live without my...

Smashbox primer. It's an extra step when applying make-up but so worth it. I got tired of my foundation always melting off my face so decided to invest in some primer. Now, when I run around with my baby I look like I made an effort instead of looking like a mess. Haha! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

I can't live without my...

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate . It has natural oils and moisturizes my dry skin. I look somewhat refreshed in the morning in spite of the middle of the night feedings. I find it comparable to Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair.

Big Fat Cupcakes

There's nothing like eating a cupcake at the end of the day. It's just so calming and relaxing. Our CO friend dropped off 3 cupcakes from big fat cupcakes this morning. I didn't know what the flavors were til I tried them just now. From left to right, a vanilla cake with vanilla frosting and mini m&ms, chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting, chocolate cake with chocolate and toffee topping. My favorite has to be the chocolate cake with toffee. The smooth chocolate totally goes with the sweet toffee crunch. Yum! I have such thoughtful friends. Hooray! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
