My Weekend In LA ( & The Cutest Brunch Cafe By The Beach)
I hope you all had a happy holiday! I spent my weekend ( & then some) in Los Angeles. While I anticipated taking a plethora of photos, I spent more time bonding with my best friend and family than actually documenting every second. I will say, I did take a moment to go to brunch to a new spot called Little Ruby’s near 3rd Street in Santa Monica.
Unlike most trips, this one was centered around taking a moment and actually enjoying myself. So many times I travel and I think ( I NEED to create all the content and take all the photos.) This time was so different. Friday night I got in super late and my friend Madison and I went to the Bungalow for a few drinks. Saturday we got up and headed to the promenade and stumbled upon this cute cafe, Little Ruby’s.
To be honest everything on the menu looked AMAZING. I went for the avocado toast with one egg and she had the breakfast bowl. The presentation was beautiful, service was great and it was right by the beach.
Options for drinks were juices, coffee or a cocktail. I stuck to water as I felt dehydrated after a night out. I wore the cutest little sweater I got from H&M paired with a skater skirt and my favorite OTK boots. I mean so perfect for LA. I’ve actually worn this exact outfit in the past but with a different sweater. What can I say I’m a creature of habit. Scroll down to see the goodies. You’ll want to check this out if you’re in town.
Breakfast Bowl: poached egg, pesto brown rice, greens, zucchini, avocado
Avocado Toast: on eight grain or ciabatta toast and one egg
You can shop this entire outfit on my LIKETKIT by going here.
After brunch we shopped around, got some gifts for my friends family and then headed back for a nice nap. I was so tired from the week I just wanted to chill. We decided to stay in, watch a movie and drink wine. I CANNOT tell you how much I missed doing things like that. Those are the little things I miss about living in LA. My close friends. The rest of my time I spent with family. I stayed at my sisters and we celebrated Christmas together. It really was much needed. After moving away from family it’s been hard connecting with them from so far away. It made me realize I want to create a stronger bond with not only my sister, but also my nieces.
As much as I love blogging, I’d love for 2018 to be more about me and the people in my life that I love. So much of this year has been dominated by challenges and my injury that it was sort of the cloud on 2017. The next year brings opportunity, it brings courage and lots of love.
I look forward to seeing what the year brings as I travel with the man who makes me feel lucky to have moved to Oregon all in the name of love. I rarely talk about him on here, but everyday he makes me feel grateful for having him in my life. So if you’re reading this, I’m grateful for you. I’m grateful for Oregon and the life we live and I’m looking forward to the next year.
Hope your holiday was filled with lots of laugh, hugs an kisses.
All my love
