The Norton Simon Museum

Yesterday my friend and I spent our afternoon at the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena. I've only been there once before, and the space felt much bigger to me than last time. The museum has around 1,000 pieces of art from various time periods on display. There's even a beautiful outdoor sculpture garden complete with a garden cafe. It's really a great place to visit if you're ever in the area!

The Packing District

It's been over a year since I last visited the Anaheim Packing House. My main mission was to try The Kroft's country fried chicken poutine (fries, country gravy, fried chicken, bacon, green onions). As you can tell from the photo above, it was delicious!! I'll have to head back there soon to sample the rest of their menu (hello, prime ribeye dip sandwich lol).

PS You can check out photos from my first visit to the Anaheim Packing House here :)

It's recently come to my attention that I know quite a few people who've never been to a Daiso store before. For those of you that don't know, Daiso is a Japanese convenience store where almost everything costs $1.50 (unless otherwise priced). Their items are SO CUTE! Plus they carry all sorts of products: stationary, makeup, snacks, household goods, etc. My basket is usually pretty full by the time I finish weaving in and out of all the aisles. But you can't really go wrong budget-wise when everything's $1.50!
PS Happy New Year!

I'm a Renegade

Last weekend I took the train out to Los Angeles to check out the Renegade Craft Fair! I've been dying to go ever since I missed out on their summer dates back in July. There were so many amazing vendors in attendance! I was particularly excited to see Oh, Hello Friend's booth (I've missed shopping at their Fullerton store!). But my newest obsession has to be Concrete Geometric and their complete collection of concrete plant vessels (I bought a mini one!). Someday I hope to have an entire patio filled with their products.

And have I mentioned the food trucks? I purchased a plate of braised pulled pork over chimichurri fries from Piaggio on Wheels (see my photo below), and I'm still dreaming about it a week later! I also found Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams and am now a new fan of their darkest chocolate flavor. We all know I wouldn't miss out on dessert haha. Anyways, check out more photos below!
