Lunch at the charming new Cafe Lola this afternoon. A beautiful atmosphere (the rose wall is even more stunning in person), and even better food. The toast with prosciutto and burrata was an absolutely delightful pairing of both texture and flavor.
The perfect weather for an iced latte. ☀️
Found while strolling through downtown Santa Barbara. A charming sign for a wonderful shop of curiosities. They had a particularly lovely collection of vintage jewelry. What’s inspiring you today?
Happy May! 🌿 May is one of my favorite months of the year. The weather is (generally) gorgeous, flowers are in full bloom, and evenings have gotten just a little bit lighter. It’s time for picnics in the park, bringing pretty sundresses out of storage, and meandering walks in the garden. What are you looking forward to this month?
Day one of the road trip has consisted of ocean views, great music, lunch with a view, and a charming fairytale hotel. The final stop of the day was a spontaneous treat from Le Macaron because I just can’t resist mint chip (or cute macarons). I’m looking forward to my first full day of adventures tomorrow.
Stopped by the most magical coffee shop this evening! A menu of delightful pastries, coffee roasted in-house, and the most charming atmosphere. I think I’m smitten. ✨ I have a feeling this is going to become my new favorite.
The hotel is booked, so now it’s official! Counting down the 27 days until I’m back in Santa Barbara. 🌴 Here’s to days on the beach, fairytale adventures in Solvang, wandering down State Street, and picnics at the zoo.
Cookies from the Hello Kitty Cafe truck because sometimes you just need some sprinkles in your life.
This primer has been a game changer for my makeup routine. Pore blurring, skin protecting, and texture evening I’ve been finding myself skipping foundation more often than not over the past two weeks. Inspired by the geisha beauty practice of putting wax on the face before applying makeup (watch the video on @tatcha’s channel for a more in-depth look), The Silk Canvas both preps the skin for an even and pigmented application of makeup, as well as creates a barrier for the skin against pollution. I caught it at just the right time and was able to purchase it before it sold out, but it’s definitely worth the wait when it comes back in stock.
