Loving Lately // 9.22.16
Happpyyy Thursday my angel faces! Today it’s time for another Loving Lately, because it’s my favorite kinda post, and it’s been a very good week so I have a lot to share. 🙂
Also, my fam is in town this week and next weekend, so I am soaking in all of the good family time & trying to balance with work, yoga training, working on our TBV rebrand (so exciting), all that jazz — but still being PRESENT in every single moment… Because that is the most important.
Especially post-Panchakarma, all I want is to be fully present in everything I do. I have been running all over town like a madwoman, that’s for sure — but that doesn’t mean that I’ve been any less present with everything I’ve committed to. Only more present, because I know everything I am saying YES to is what I reallllyyyy wanna be doing.
So let’s dive into it. 🙂
Loving Lately // 9.22.16
↠ ↠ My Nanny’s 78th Birthday! // Every kid who had a nanny growing up will know why today is so important to me. My nanny was like a second mom to me when I was little, and she still is. She started with my family when I was 3 weeks old and stayed with us until I was 11 — much to my hysteria when she left to take care of her own grandkids (How dare she?! Hehe just kidding Nanny). But even after that she remained a huge part of my life and until this day, she is one of the most important people on my life. She is also one of my absolute favorite humans to spend time with, because she is the greatest storyteller, we laugh like crazy together and I also grew very close to her family over the years so I love getting to see them too. HAPPY birthday Nanny, I am so lucky to have such a special woman in my life. Oh and thank you for being one of my most avid blog readers — how lucky am I to have you? <3 <3
Nanny & me at my book signing in Sactown in December! My number one, always.
↠ ↠ SunCafe Organic // If you follow me on Snap or Insta story, then you know I went to SunCafe in Studio City the other night with Christina to celebrate all the awesome work she has done for me over the last 7 months. We were definitely spoiled by the owner Ron and his amazing staff… After dinner we ordered not 1, not 2 but THREE desserts — and all 3 were devoured by the time we left. I was pretty full from the phenomenal tempeh stir fry that I had (literally the yummiest thing ever), but I could NOT pass up the chocolate cookie dough cheesecake! And Christina ordered the pistachio ice cream sandwich (so innovative), and we got the PB banana cupcake to share.
Yeah, all of it was mouthwatering.
SunCafe is a vegan restaurant in the valley that has been around for 7 years… If I lived closer by to it, I would probably go every night. Who votes that Ron should open one on the westside as soon as possible?! I not so subtly tried to convince him when I saw him the other night. 🙂 The westside needs more organic vegan restaurants with healthy options. Even for us non-vegans… I still LOVE a good plant-based meal. Who’s with me? Check them out here & give them a visit if you’re in LA. Tell them TBB sent you. 🙂 You know #tbbmademedoit !
↠ ↠ White Claw Hard Seltzer // You guys, I am obsessed with this and so thrilled to have discovered it. You KNOW I am not a drinker — like at all. I like to sip on yummy feel-good cocktails occasionally, like vodka soda with lime (literally, only that, lol) but NOTHING that will make me feel hungover the next day or mess with my blood sugar. I’m a wellness junkie, after all. White Claw is a 100% natural, low carb and gluten-free sparkling seltzer water with 5% alcohol and just a litttttle hint of fresh fruit. Basically, it’s all the goodness of a nice refreshing alc beverage without any of the bad stuff. You don’t get wasted from sipping on a couple of these bad boys throughout the night… Just like I like it.
