♫ Minden- Real Sugar ♫ 

I finally got to check out  SteelCraft and try out their yummy food last week. SteelCraft is a new communal space that just opened in Long Beach and it pretty much is a food court and dining space. I love the whole aesthetic/design and how it is made up of real shipping containers, it's a must-see!

Since it was a chilly night I went for Tajima ramen and it was delicious, definitely went for the classic ramen on the menu. After ramen we couldn't say no to dessert so we shared a Belgian waffle from Waffle Love, specifically the "Red Wonder" which had a mix of red berries, whip, and some sort of yummy nutella/ speculoos spread on the after one bite I was in love...yes... I know that good! hahah 

If you guys get a chance, you must check out this cool space and make sure you arrive hungry to try all the other eateries!

Hey guys!

Here are the pictures from this past weekend. We went out exploring Newport Beach's new outdoor shopping center called: Lido Marina Village.

This place is just the cutest, it's definitely got that upscale yet laid-back beachy cottage feel. I loved the minimalist decor and overall aesthetic design of this place. I believe it hasn't been around for too long yet which is why there weren't many businesses opened yet. 
However, it's still a great place to go hang out or go on date. There are some cute boutiques, a book store, a few restaurants, and cafes to check out. I can imagine it will be very popular around summer time since it is right on Balboa Peninsula and super close to Balboa Island. Loved, loved it! I'm definitely hoping to be back soon and check out the rest!

Hello lovelies!

I hope you guys enjoyed your weekend, it's been a rainy couple days here in SoCal lately but I'm not complaining we were in dire need of rain especially since the drought. Can't wait for spring's lush greenery!

Here is a random compilation of the these last couple of days, it's still chilly here so that means coffee house after coffee house with friends and good company...we just can't get enough haha, plus you can never go wrong with coffee and good company or in my case sometimes...matcha. 

More pictures coming your way from yesterday's adventure in Newport Beach, stay tuned! :)
