Weak at the Knees for Crossroads Kitchen

We all know I’m a creature of habit. As a foodie, that gets me into trouble. I love love love trying new restaurants, but I also easily become obsessed with really good restaurants when I find them. Because I’m so content with my fave spots, I don’t always feel the urge to try anywhere new. Just in case it’s not as good, ya know? Anyways, I feel like I’ve been in a bit of a restaurant rut recently. I revisit my go-to’s over and over again, and even though I love them, I needed a change. I have an excessively long restaurant to-do list, and…

Newest Addiction: FroFru at Frozen Fruit Co

Your life is about to change. It all started one night as I loopily walked out of my weekly massage in Santa Monica. Post-massage, I can barely tell what’s going on around me. I’m way too relaxed. As I walked to my car, I saw the vibrant colors and bright lights of an ice cream shop, and some fabulous looking sorbet-ish dessert in the hands of everyone exiting. I had no idea what it was, but I assumed it was just your average ice cream shop because A) any place that is aesthetically pleasing is usually not allergy-friendly and B) if it was…

Yoga-urt: Soft Serve Paradise

Have you ever found a place you love so much that you don’t want to tell anyone else about it? My heart is POUNDING as I write this, because I’m about to reveal my favorite dessert shop on the planet. I want to keep it my little secret so I can have it all to myself, but I know that’s selfish. This place deserves all the love in the world, so I have to share it. I discovered Yoga-urt last April while perusing Instagram, and I was immediately intrigued. Gluten-free, vegan soft serve that actually looked thick and creamy? It…

Food & Friends in San Diego

This is way overdue. Oops. I’m FINALLY getting around to looking at photos from my trip to San Diego last weekend, so it’s time for a recap post! My friends and I really needed to get away for a weekend. It was one of those things where we’ve all been running around like crazy people all summer long and haven’t had a chance to slow down, so we decided we needed one last hurrah before school starts again. San Diego is close, easy, relaxing, and always one of my favorite places to visit, so we figured it would be the perfect quick getaway.…

Sundays, Sunlife Organics, & Malibu Farm

Yesterday was a great Sunday. Last week was rough for me, so I needed to get my mind off things. I needed to relax, do something different, and surround myself with positive energy. I have also been freaking out about the fact that it’s almost September, because that means school is right around the corner. I’m running out of time to work on my massive summertime to-do list, and it’s nowhere near being completed. Struggles. I decided that a day in Malibu with my friends was just what I needed. I’ve actually never been to Malibu before, which most people are shocked to…
