I Am Sharing

Night with my girls in Venice!!!

I freaking love Cafe Gratitude. It’s SO good after all these years of being a hot restaurant! & Very consistently good, in fact, which is a feat in this town!!!

In my opinion, extremely flavorful and tasty dishes, and you still feel amazing after eating! That’s what I’m talking about. Yummmm!

I’m obsessed with Nachos across the board, so for vegan nachos, theirs are exceptional! And can you even imagine how good Pad Thai is with kelp noodles and nut sauce? just about heaven to me.

The key lime pie was good, pretty close to the real thing, but I’ll try something different next time just cuz I think their gluten free cinnamon rolls are more my thing!

& FYI The smoothies and juices are something I usually indulge in. But I skipped this time, because I was so full from the Nachos!!!

Thanks Gratitude, I am Grateful for You!

Proof of Concept

I Usually only grab pastries at Proof. And am WAY happy to. . .

I could wax poetic on the bounty of what it means to eat flaky layered buttered flour crisps in the form of chocolate croissant goodness!

But, today I grabbed some of their more lunchy items, like the Ham n Gruyere Baguette with Cornichons and the Peaches and Cream Cake. Was not let down in the slightest. Get there over and over. The delights don’t cease.


We dove headfirst into the pepperoni. Y U M

Then swam through the divine cheese gully’s in the cacio e pepe, and when we thought we couldn’t eat anymore, , , the neighboring table was presented with their Olive Oil Cocoa Cake,,, and we just kept wading deeper.

The pepperoni was my favorite. I saw lots of tables getting the Margherita. I’ll probably get that when I go back.

And dang the chocolate cake.

Pizzana is part owned by the Sprinkles cupcake founder, so it’s par for the course that she knows a thing or two about cake. . . Turns out she’s pretty good with her pizza sensibility too!

We normally order in, and get their sandwiches and pastas too, but venturing out was totally worth it. The intimate vibe is so fun and so weho. Enjoy! Write a comment if you go and love! Xx

Holy Lava Flow

Okay, so serious friggin delicious alert!!!!

Head to Aliya Lavaland for the most surprising little dessert!

First, have you ever had those sweet egg dimsums? If those are your vibe you’ll like this. Or if you like custard or Cadbury eggs, then this could be your jam!

I was totally taken aback, because the store signs called them moon cakes, and I’ve had my fair share of boxed moon cakes with aduki, that are not super good. . .

But these … next level yum in my opinion!

This is the flaky moon cake exterior, super fresh in this instance, with a semi sweet lava flow eggy custard interior. And boyyy was it money!

I def suggest a little trip to San Gabriel to try out!

And nothing to fear, Beard Papa and Sunright Tea are next door, so you can def find something you like all in all.

I will def be back to Aliya Lavaland for a Lava Mooncake. So my speed!!

Life Changing Yogurt

I got this recipe from @pinkponyresale !!! She’s the health nut bomb dot com I go to for all sorts of tips! And I’m sharing with you too now!

This yogurt, it’s literally been life changing for me.

I LOVE yogurt, but have been struggling to remain dairy free! [Just for my constitution:), everyone is different and can tolerate different things!] & Even with all the alternatives on the market, yogurt has always been my weakness. But now that I make this almost everyday, no more craving yogurt! Or any dairy for that matter. I couldn’t be more thrilled.

The closest thing on the market is the GTs Cocoyo at whole foods. But this is SO much better. Truly.

These are the exact products I’ve been using for the most delightful yogurt on the planet!

(Hope it doesn’t cause a run on 365 brand. LOLoLol. Happy to share regardless!! My goal is to spread well-being, aka love and light!)

When shopping for a probiotic I figured I could use a good boost, so on a whim I tried the mood ones, and boy are they happy probiotics! You can def try other ones, but I’ll probably stick to these!

And interestingly, I popped one sans yogurt, and it was alright, but for some reason when it’s feeding on coconut it’s so happy! I def see a difference between just taking probiotics vs cultivating them and taking them. So there’s a little curious info to contemplate when you try this recipe.

Also, the toppings above are Hemp Hearts, Shredded Coconut, and Frozen Raspberries, all from Trader Joe’s! Serious YUMMMMMM

Enjoy xx

Bu Bliss

Sojourned out to malibu with my favorite songwriting couple, to visit some fabulous film making friends.

We devoured impossible burgers by the beach and caught up in this new new post covid world.

After dining, a few of us ventured down to the beach for the immaculate sunset and it delivered everything one might want delivered in a sunset. Truly.

We feasted our eyes on the glowing ember of the day and relinquished all control of the elements, especially as our friend’s daughter’s lonely shoe washed away in the rogue current…

Cheers to abandoning tired and worn out things on the beach!!

And Amen, farewell tired and worn out versions of ourselves too! Bye!

Good night moon, bless our best lives softly, like lullabies sung by a mockingbird in the dusky saltwater evening.
