Happy Monday loves! I hope you had a great weekend 🙂

“There is no sincerer love than the love of food” -George Bernard Shaw

With that being said, I found a new coffee shop in La Mirada, California called “Cream & Sugar Cafe” and OMG it is adorable! Located in a small strip mall, the front doesn’t give it justice. From the outside, it doesn’t look like much.

The Decor:

The color of the walls are medium gray and there’s lots of artwork on the wall. A drawing of the world map, a big wooden headboard that has HELLO in silver letter and sometimes it lights up! One of my favorite little detail about this place is that on every table there is 1 mason jar that contains sugar and another mason jar that has mini coffee creamers. The menu is actually a chalkboard that has all of the options available.

The Food/Drinks:

The first time I came here I had got the Iced Mint Coffee. *Yes I know: iced coffee with mint?!* It’s not as sweet as you would expect, but in my opinion, sometimes too much sweet takes away from the coffee taste. This iced coffee had more of a light hint of mint. *A little about me: I love mostly everything mint!* What I also love about this place and their coffee, is that when you order for here, you get your coffee in a mason jar. They were so sweet that they gave me a sample of the iced mint coffee before I ordered to see if I would like it. The sample was in another mini mason jar!

The second time I purchased something here was the Watermelon Mojito. My favorite alcoholic beverage is a mojito so you can imagine of course I had to get the non-alcoholic version of this. I love the different layers shown in this pic! You’ve got the lemonade flavor on the bottom while the watermelon is on the top and that cute little mint sprig as the topping. It’s such a refreshing drink especially in the summer!

The last thing I ordered recently was the Roast Beef with Horseradish sandwich. It has roast beef, red onions, tomatoes, lettuce, cheese and a horseradish dressing on a baguette. I’m honestly not a big fan of horseradish but for some reason it fit perfectly in the sandwich.

Brea Lush Haul and Review

Happy Thursday loves!

I finally went to visit a Lush for the first time in my life and finally purchased something I had my eye on forever. There’s only 2 Lush locations in my area. Anaheim and Brea, California both located in Orange County. As soon as you walk in, you can smell all their natural scents, like  the ocean and it smells clean and fresh. Karen the young lady that was helping me was awesome! She was very patient and didn’t rush me to buy anything. I went to look for the Dark Angels mask but alas, they were sold out, even online! She then showed me other types of cleansers and masks that are a little similar to Dark Angel.

She showed me Ocean Salt, Mask of Magnaminty, and the Coalface. Ocean Salt is a face and body scrub that smells like you’re at the ocean. It’s main ingredient is seaweed. (hence the ocean scent!)

I ended up buying the Coalface and a small sample of the Mask of Magnaminty. I really do like the mask! First of all, it’s a clay mask which helps with oily skin and second of all the scent! The name itself is very clever, they somehow added “minty” in the name. I have a thing with anything mint, if there’s mint, I’m buying it. :p

Coalface is like Dark Angels in a way but in a soap base. It’s a cleansing charcoal bar that you can use daily for normal to oily skin. It’s main ingredient, no surprise here, its powdered charcoal.

I definitely can’t wait to go to Lush again and try out more skincare products, I might even get those bathbombs everyone raves about!

Whats your favorite Lush product? Any recommendations?
