Every Thursday

Things have been pretty busy lately but I wanted to make sure that I posted a few photos for this week! Last night my cousin and I drove over to Handel's for their $1.25/scoop deal. We pretty much go every Thursday just for their banana cream pie ice cream haha. Check out more of my photos from Handel's here and here!

In other news, I have one more week until I fly out to Georgia to visit one of my best friends! I'm really starting to miss long-term travel but these little trips here and there have been holding me over. Plus I'm already making plans for 2016! Seattle and Nashville have officially been added to the list (I've never been to either of those cities!). Let the countdown to Georgia begin! :)

Suite 106 Cupcakery

My friend and I decided to treat ourselves to some yummy desserts at Suite 106 Cupcakery earlier this afternoon. What better way to end the weekend than with dessert? Plus I just had to pick up one of their giant chocolate chip cookies after seeing this post on Instagram. Wise decisions were made today haha.

In other news, I have three more weeks until my trip out to Georgia! I'm just counting down the days until then! It feels like it's been far too long since I was last on a plane haha.

626 Night Market

I had so much fun at the 626 Night Market on Friday night!! Don't even get me started on all of the delicious food! My friend and I purchased filet mignon fries for dinner and we were both pretty much in heaven from that point on. And if you follow me on Instagram, then you probably saw the Nutella macaron ice cream sandwich of happiness that I bought for dessert from the Dolcissimo Bakeshop stand. 

Besides all of the amazing food, there was also plenty of shopping and entertainment to check out. I got to watch DANakaDAN perform a few songs live and I have to say, I think I'm a new fan! I'd heard of him before but I was never really familiar with his music. Here are a few of the songs that he played if you're interested in taking a listen: Til' // Stuntman // Is There Anybody Out There?

Tonight is the last night that you can attend the 626 Night Market for the month of August, but it'll be back next month during the Labor Day weekend. I highly recommend that you check it out if you get the chance!

Brunch at N7

A couple of weekends ago my cousins and I drove over to N7 Creamery for brunch. If you've been around me lately then you've probably heard me rave about their weekend brunch menu (I talk about it ALL the time!). Anyways, one of my cousins ordered these amazing crepe muffins that I've never seen before! They were filled with eggs and bacon and looked delicious! I don't have a good picture of the dish because let's face it, by the time our food came I had different priorities (foooood). But that's okay, because I have no doubt that I'll be back at N7 Creamery in the very near future haha.

Check out photos from my very first trip to N7 Creamery here!

LA Flower Market

I've wanted to visit the LA Flower Market for the longest time, but I always find a reason not to go (too far away, too early, etc). Well I finally made it there last Saturday and I'm so happy that I went! I ended up buying some amazing roses for only $3!! And this is totally random, but I've always wanted to have a reason to carry around a giant bouquet of flowers wrapped in newspaper. So you can imagine my excitement when I was finally able to do that! I should also mention that when you walk around DTLA with a bouquet of flowers, strangers will randomly come up to you and say, "Are those for me!? I've always wanted flowers hahaha!" True story, guys. PS Expect a new Flower Studies post in the near future!

Verve Coffee Roasters

Did anybody else in Los Angeles get blindsided by the crazy rainstorm on Saturday!? I woke up early that morning to catch the train into the city and didn't even think to check the weather forecast! It's a good thing that I was only a block away from Verve Coffee Roasters when the downpour started. The amazing plant walls at their DTLA location have been all over Instagram and I've been dying to see them for myself! I have to say, drinking a delicious cup of hot chocolate while watching the rain fall was not a bad way to start the day.
