Portfolio Coffee

Portfolio Coffee

On my quest to try as many coffee places as I can, I recently landed at Portfolio Coffee in Long Beach, California. Portfolio is right off of a main street with only metered parking.  I quickly (and luckily) found a meter spot, dropped in my […]

July Playlist

July Playlist

This July I’ve really just focused on listening to a few songs while driving around.  Not planning it, but I always found myself listening to these particular songs while driving around doing errands or going down PCH.  Here is my July playlist!

July Playlist

As you can see, this month I was listening to music that was more towards the Country genre.  Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Sam Hunt, and the Zac Brown Band are some of my favorites.  I went a little old school listening to 80s glam rock with George Michael (he’s the only Glam Rocker that I listen to. 80s Rock all the way). Still staying with the Brits with an alternative band called The 1975.  Going back to my 1D days with Niall Horan’s new single, Slow Hands.  And last but not least, have some Ed Sheeran music from his newest album Divide.

The best way to listen to these songs (in my opinion) is to roll your windows down and have the volume a little higher than the normal “windows all rolled up” volume.  It’s still respecting those in the cars next to you, but you can really get into the music.  These songs are fun and energizing and I think that’s why I’ve been loving these 11 songs that I’ve listed.

 

Until next time,

 

stay classy

 

Friday Finds

Friday Finds

Here are some of the finds I discovered this week I loved them so much that I thought I’d share with you all!  I really think these items are so cute for Summer.  This heat (at least in Southern California) shows no sign of letting […]

Rosemary and Lemon Roasted Chicken

Rosemary and Lemon Roasted Chicken

Over the past couple of months I have really stepped up my dinner game.  My mom taught me how to cook as a child, but I enjoy baking a little more than cooking.  Once a week I make dinner for my family.  With four people […]

Honor Coffee

Honor Coffee

Last Friday I went to Honor Coffee on Lido Island, Newport Beach, California.

It’s very quaint and beautifully bright white with detailed molding.  There is a rustic wood table community table in the middle of the shop and a few two-seater tables in front of the large window that has a great view of the other unique businesses.  In the back on the shop, there is also a private room but as of yet there are no tables.  This shop has only been open for a few months but I think it’s made a big splash!  The barista that was there at the time was so nice and very patient with my friend and me while we were trying to decide on what to get.  There was also no one in line so we didn’t feel the need to rush.

I Did A Phone Cleanse

I Did A Phone Cleanse

In all honesty, this phone cleanse was a total and complete accident. On Friday my Mom and I decided to go out for coffee.  After I received my coffee, I realized that the lid was a tad too small for my mini sized cup.  I […]

Life’s Better Buzzed

Life’s Better Buzzed

On Monday I drove down to Encinitas, California to try Better Buzzed Coffee.  I’ve heard about this place for over a year, but never had the chance to go.  If you are unfamiliar, Encinitas is in San Diego County, the city to the right of […]

I Was the One Who Walked Away…

I Was the One Who Walked Away…

I was the one who walked away from a friendship.  I didn’t leave to be cruel or mean;  I left because I love myself and this was a toxic friendship.

It’s been a few months, so I have decided to look back on the situation with a different perspective on our friendship to really find out what the flags were, how I missed them, and how I will remember them for future friendships.

Cute and Comfy Shoes

Cute and Comfy Shoes

I have definitely endured the phrase “beauty is pain” and have even said it on many occasions regarding my footwear.  Alas, I have no use to say this phrase any later.  I have found few cute and comfy shoes that I’d like to share with you. […]
