Our weekend

Our weekend was awesome. I got to go on a thrifting spree, ordered some pretty things that will soon be available on the website and got to hung out with friends in Koreatown in downtown Los Angeles.
Then we went to a Korean cafe for dessert and coffee...

The cafe has three floors and we ended up upstairs in a private room. It was awesome.

                                             I had awesome vintage finds that I will share soon.
How was your memorial day weekend? Please share, I would love to hear it!

My Birthday part 4

As I promised, though super late because I've been sick, here are the photos of what my mister bought me from Bottega Louie.
These boxes are impossible to throw away!
The best macarons I've ever had! They only use natural flavorings from all over the world.

These cupcakes are the prettiest cupcakes I've ever seen in my life. They have super tiny macarons on top and the crystal sugar is just divine. The cupcakes are a bit dry and spongy (I like them moist and heavy) but I really enjoyed them. Some of them has filling inside and the natural flavoring is so much better than the artificial ones. My favorite is the chocolate with caramel filling and the lemon ones with candied lemon peel on top. Those thingies are just amazing!
Hey Angelino! You only gave me 11 macarons instead of 12!!! Next time I'll watch closely while you box them up. Lol.

My Birthday part 3

This is my favorite restaurant, Bottega Louie in downtown L.A.! I've heard that this is the third best restaurant in the entire United States and the number one in the whole of Los Angeles. It's so beautiful inside like your in a restaurant in France. It reminds me of Laduree. Specially the stacks and stacks of pretty pastry boxes and the macaron towers. The only complaint I have of the place is it that it's soooo loud inside  (I blame the super high ceilings but eventually you get used to it and then your ears adjust and then you eventually hear the person you're talking to).
So pretty 'no?

They call this a library of fine chocolates

He's preparing my order
* All photos were taken by me kindly link to my blog if you are going to use any of the images.

I got a box of a dozen macarons but sadly, inside the box there were only 11!!! Ugh. And I also got a dozen of those super pretty cupcakes! Photos coming soon!

My Birthday part 2

My mister hid something in the mail box but I did not check the mail box the whole day. And then he handed me it instead. It was an invitation...
 He waited all day for me to check the mail box but I didn't. He handed me all the mail but I still didn't check them, so he handed me the actual letter.
 It was at my most favorite restaurant. And I was ecstatic.
My food: Steak with truffle sauce and farmer's market veggies
The best Calamari ever and of course portobello fries  

our dessert: Le Grand Macaron (So Laduree!)

Inside the restaurant, on the next post. Oh you'll love it!!!

My Birthday part 1

It's 11:45 pm now, my birthday is almost over. I had a blast. My kids are awesome! They wrote me long letters and they surprised me with flowers, balloons and cute stickers!

I made truffles and egg salad sandwiches and we had picnic at the park. It was so much fun!

I love my shoes!
