Sharing a few life ramblings from April and May.
Last month, I went up to the the Bay Area to visit my family. The visit was filled with a lot of eating (as always).
I also brought home loquats from my mom’s giant loquat tree.
And I spent time with this little cutie.
My blueberries and roses are blooming!
New addition to the garden this year are strawberries and pineberries. I love how cute the pineberries are.
We had another bird family this year! As you may recall, we had a nest above our front door last year. In January, we noticed some birds hanging around the same spot the nest had been last year. At first, they were just taking shelter during the night but soon we saw them gathering materials for their nest. By March the nest was done and we could see the eggs. In April, two baby birds emerged. It was pretty amusing watching them learn how to fly.
Currently in love with ERBORIAN Glow Crème Illuminating Face Cream. (This is an affiliate link) I apply it right before my makeup and it leaves my face with a very natural looking glow. I’ve tried similar products before, but usually after I apply my makeup, the glow from the lotion goes away. This is the first one I’ve tried where the glow comes through the make-up but it still looks very natural.
Favorite Bites this Month
- Smoked Coconut Passion Fruit Meringue Danish from Herb & Wood
I’m a huge fan of the pastries and desserts served at Herb & Wood and Herb & Eatery from executive pastry chef Adrian Mendoza. His croissants are the crispiest I’ve ever had and my favorite in San Diego. Recently we went to attend Friendly Feast’s Chef-Driven Bake Sale event, where Chef Mendoza created two gorgeous pastries including this smoked danish. It was so unique. The smoked coconut gave the pasty an almost savory twist and the danish itself was flaky and crispy. It needs to be on their regular menu!
- Purple Sweet Potato Bingsoo from Cafe Bora
- Meat from hot pot at Momo Paradise (Los Angeles). Post coming soon!
