Gotta start my week off right by grabbing a lavender latte before work from Milk & Honey in Costa Mesa. They have the best coffee concoctions and most delish red velvet macaroons!



I’m craaaaving Vietnamese, and lucky for me East Borough has the tastiest spring rolls in all of Southern Cali. If I’m extra hungry, I’ll splurge on a chicken bahn mi. Their baguettes are to die for!



Hump day calls for happy hour. I stumbled upon Zinqué the other week and immediately fell in love with the entire Lido Marina Village. You can enjoy a nice wine and small bites right on the marina. I can’t wait until Nobu opens up next door!


If I told you there was a speakeasy at the Irvine Marriott, would you believe me? The YNK (You Never Know) theme changes every three months (I was there for the Asian theme), and their craft cocktails are unlike anything I’ve ever had. You HAVE to try the Old Fashioned.



Time to reward myself for making it through another week! Nick’s in Laguna Beach is a total hot spot, but always worth the wait. I start my night off with a Black and Blue Mojito and Asparagus Fries, followed by their mouth watering cioppino. You can never go wrong here!



My happy place is a glass of rosé during a sunset, and the absolute BEST place to experience this heaven is at The Deck in Laguna Beach. The Deck has got fantastic cocktails, an epic cheese board, and vibes for daaaaaays.



If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m a huge fan of some good old fashioned day drinking. Sunday Funday would be incomplete without a trip to the Bungalow in Huntington Beach. The Bungalow in Santa Monica is my favorite bar of all time, so I was ecstatic to find out they were opening an OC location!
