Cute Macarons! | Weekends with Me

heya friends!

I was extremely busy this past weekend because my little sister was visiting the O.C. so we made sure to hit up a lot of yummy restaurants and malls. But since we were running around quite a bit, a sista lost her camera sd card somewhere so I had to resort to my iPhone for photos. They still came out okay so I still wanted to show them!

I was home back in the South Bay for half of the weekend. Home home usually consists of laziness and movie-watching. One of the pros are home-cooked meals; especially breakfast!


We headed down to Irvine the next day and we basically stuffed ourselves with good food for the rest of weekend haha.


If you have never tried Umami Burger, it is a must! It’s like a gourmet burger restaurant that is known for their Truffle Burgers and skinny crispy fries. So delicious!


We got Peach Iced Tea from Milk & Honey located at The Camp (in Costa Mesa) and we browsed through all the hipster, cute shops. Another place to visit if you are ever in the area.


We were lucky and had the chance to pick up some character macarons from Honey and Butter located at The Lab (right next to the Camp). This place is crazy popular because of their selection of adorable and edible sweets. I mean just look at those cuties above. Yes, that is Daenerys Targaryen from the Games of Thrones. They do sell regular macarons but there is usually a long line before the little shop opens. They sell out everyday around noon.

The rest of the weekend consisted of a lot more eating and great conversations; something a photo can’t capture. I seriously hope I locate my sd card soon! I hope you enjoyed this little weekend post. ❤

Bottega Louie & Ktown | Weekends with Me

heya friends!

This past weekend, I was in Los Angeles quite a bit and I have a little round up of pics. Thought I would post it since I discovered new places to eat/visit! Enjoy.


Sean and I went to a concert at the Wiltern on Friday. We ate at Beer Belly: a little restaurant located in Koreatown where they serve craft beer and fried chicken. The great thing about Koreatown is all of the adorable coffee cafe’s sprinkled everywhere. We went to a few but my favorite was The Loft.


We also ventured to the Grand Central Market where we got massive burritos and the Almond and Macademia Latte from G&B Coffee. It’s one of the best latte’s I’ve ever had and awesome from those who are lactose intolerant!


After, we walked to Bottega Louie and snacked on delicious macarons and some more coffee. It was my first time there and I have to say, it is a very lovely place to visit. It is super crowded during the weekend so I suggest coming here on a weekday if possible. The macarons are sooooo mouthwatering/aesthetically pleasing and their coffee is just as yummy. I’ve also heard great reviews on their food; must try again sometime soon!


Hope you enjoyed this little roundup!
