All by myself in Claremont, CA

It was a Sunday, it was over 100' in the house and just as hot outside and I could not bare it any longer. After numerous attempts to get my mother and sister to join me on a random drive there were no takers. I went alone and that's just fine, I like being alone, is something wrong with me? God I hope not, its just too hard for me to call a handful of people and get the same awnser: no sorry I'm busy. Hey I do the same thing, life is busy who has time to do things on other peoples time...is that too selfish to say? I barely hang out with my boyfriend and I hate talking on the phone. I'm taking some deep-thinking classes and working late ass hours, all I can do is spend time with the one I love, myself.
When I spend time with myself I treat myself very well. I have a nice lunch a coffee maybe a present in the form of window shopping, and if I'm a really good girl I get a new pair of earrings.
On the latest all by myself trip I drove down a few miles...18 miles to Claremont, CA. Does anyone know what Iam talking about? This place is beautiful, full of trees, college hotties, green design shops, great homes, cafes, coffee and Mountains! I spent a few hours walking bout this town as if it was the first time I had seen it. There is something on every corner that gets my attention.
After walking around a few hours my appetite was calling me like a gossiping girl. I realized that I really hadn't had much to eat that day, besides that 500 calorie mini muffin...ugh why. So I walked around aimlessly because I cannot make up my mind when Iam hungry, its kinda weird. After going back and forth on where to eat lunch I listened to my instincts just like my philosophy teacher said and I ended up at Le Pain Quotidien.
So why did I choose to eat here? You must be wondering what my instincts were thinking...well I was pulled into this place because I love quiche, and it was one of the first things on the menu. I ordered the quiche Lorianne with a arugula salad and green iced tea...why am I going into so much detail? Well I want you to order exactly what I did. This was the perfect light enough lunch for a Summer afternoon. That's why.
Now that you heard me go off on the quiche and saw the picture to go along I know that you are sold on it too. Sorry if you are vegan or lactose you are missing out.
The La Pain Quotidein surprised me with a wonderful meal, knowledgeable server , and a cute cafe featuring a full bakery & a communal table.
I had never heard of the La Pain Quotidein before and Iam so glad I stopped by. It must really be good because apparently alot of celebs frequent this place including Katie Holmes who has is loaded.
So glad to have come and gone. Cheers to many more all by myself trips, dates and time with friends in Claremont, CA.

Claremont Village

My mom and I have been going to Claremont forever now, and if you follow this blog than you know it too! It's a cute town that's near the foothills, has colleges, food, beer and cute shops to wonder in. 

We decided to take Loki with us that day, and it was so damn hot...is this the hottest summer in a while? Or do I just forget the prior years...eaither way it was on fire in Claremont that day. 

We stumbled upon a taco shack that was undeniably cute! I'm working on finding the name of it, I can't seem to find it on any listing.
Over by the restroom by the taco shop there was the wood csrbed donkey so we had to take pics with it! Poor Loki was so hot that day! 
Enjoying chipa and salsa at the taco shack.




A few things I do that make me feel like me

I start work in two hours so that means I have just enough time to start writing a blog post. Its been an inspiring week and I feel like there are signs from all over the universe guiding me into the right direction. I have had some meaningful time spent alone as well as with other people. I'm trying to have "more fun" and not worry so much about the little things. A few weeks ago I saw a psychic and she told me a ton of things, it was super strange to feel so vulnerable and unsure if what she was saying was true or not. 

The things she said that made me think... Ill be a mother, not now but in a few years. That I will be a successful Business woman, because I have vision and drive. That I have a dark spirit following me, That I want to be happy but that I only will be if I let whatever happened to me in my past go free.
As you can see it was pretty intense, full of tears and I was scared, but I knew that she was right because for a long time I had been unhappy and it was…

Village at La Floresta Walking Tour

Hi y'all it's been a few weeks since the opening of the new shopping center in Brea "Village at La Floresta" and I've finally had some time to share my experience and photos that I took that day!

As some of you may know, this new shopping center has been in the works for a few years now and is part of a whole new community of new custom homes and even a retirement home as well as a swimming club all under the umbrella of La Floresta, a master planned community.

One of the big draws for this new community is the fact that they had a whole foods as part of their shopping centers new tenants, and us crazy people in North oc have been having to go out to Tustin to get our fix of pre-peeled oranges and lemon infused water, I kid...lol do people really buy that crap anyway? Wenever I go it's usually to buy something fun from the beauty section or the salad bar!!! Yum!!!

When I went out to see the new location a few weeks ago I went in on the opening day! Crazy I t…
