The perfect Sunday consisted of a decadent brunch and all things vintage shopping. To fuel up for the day with the ladies, we took quick detour to Sqirl, located in Silverlake, CA. This place is fan-tas-tic! No wonder there’s always a line out the door for this vegan-friendly restaurant. They cook up a mean Pesto Rice Bowl (pictured) as well as rich pastries, lattes and a variety of toasts, avocado toast included. The bowl was devoured before I had a moment to breathe and needless to say, I’ll be back (too) soon.
Finding local hot spots is even easier then ever before! Townske reached out to me to be a part of their amazing launch as a featured publisher & I couldn’t be more thrilled. Essentially, Townske is a new social media publishing platform and a community of like-minded travelers who appreciate quality experiences.

You can search by keywords, places and more and you’re presented with beautiful imagery and a specific point of view from your fellow “like-minded” travelers. Additionally, Townske has integrated the ability sync Instagram images to the your guide which makes it extremely user friendly!

Health has a new shape and it’s round in form. With juice fads and crazy diets, it’s impossible to know what’s truly healthy or what is substantially necessary for your diet. What I do know however is how fulfilling it is to create something with little time and ease and in a way that doesn’t break the bank. Stay tuned for more posts about my favorite bowls; something sweet and savory for everyone.
Today’s bowl: Veggie Quinoa Breakfast Bowl
yield: 1 serving
1/2 cup of quinoa, rinsed
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of water
broccoli, cut into florets
cheddar cheese, grated
salt & pepper, to taste
Heat a little bit of olive oil in a pan over medium high. Add broccoli and mushrooms, and stir-fry until cooked (around 5 minutes). Remove from heat and set aside.
Combine milk, water, and quinoa in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring regularly*, until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
Add vegetables, cheese, and salt & pepper to the pot of quinoa and stir to combine. Cover and set aside.
Fry a sunny side–up egg.
Transfer the quinoa to a bowl, then top with the egg.
This month marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month and what better to support a brand who recognizes this cause as well as so many others such as AIDS/HIV, Alzheimers, Diabetes & Melanoma to name a few!
Angela & Roi Lee began this philanthropic brand in hopes to combine the beauty of minimalism as well as defining their brand with the aspect of raising money for charity.
The brand Angela & Roi have beautifully curated handbags and backpacks of a vast variety of shapes and sizes made with vegan leather and all things durable for a competitive price. Shop by color/ cause and the brand will donate a portion of the money to increase awareness.
Peep a few of my favorite bags here and visit Angela & Roi‘s website to be a part of the cause!
