My First Month in LA: Foodie Edition

I’m homesick y’all, and it just hit me today September 8th. It’s my first month in LA and I’m already homesick. What part of the game is this?

Let me start by thanking God that I was finally able to move into my apartment after waiting a month. Amen! I absolutely love my new apartment. The location is central to everything, I can get to a Target, Walmart, Tj Maxx or an Ikea with in 15-20 mins. Bingo!

Within my first month of living in LA, I was able to stay with a cousin in Laguna and really explore that whole area and all of its wonderful shopping. Outside of shopping I’m also a foodie! Laguna didn’t have the best food but I did come across one restaurant called The Melt. I would call them a “grilled cheese spot” that would be the simplest description of them.

I went twice and had two damn good sandwiches. One was called the “Mac Daddy” it had Mac and Cheese, smoked bacon and crispy onions. My second visit I got the “Steak and Cheese” their version of a Philly cheesesteak. Heaven in mouth!

Once I moved into my place I was able to check out some new and old restaurants in my area. One old restaurant that I have already been to was Salsa and Beer. Probably one of my all time favorite Mexican restaurants so far. Best meal on the menu… The California Burrito. Succulent shrimp, steak and chicken. Definitely enough food to have leftovers for lunch the next day. If you’re ever in town make sure you check them out!

A new restaurant that I checked out was a Vegan restaurant called Doomie’s. They have Big Mac’s and Fried Chicken. I know its hard to believe its ¬†Vegan but it is. Check out their menu and my meal below.

Last but not least, my favorite hot dog spot… Dog Haus! Some of the most tasty Hot Dogs and sausages I’ve ever had in my life. Below is the “Thai Fighter” You just have to check it out for yourself.

Enjoying the moment in Denim.

Denim Wrap Dress

Why is it that year after year we get to June and we reflect on where we are in life and either freak out that the year is almost over and we feel like we haven’t accomplished everything we planned or we look at how far we’ve come and how much we’ve grown. Both are normal reactions but I find myself doing a lot of freaking out sometimes when I should really just be thinking about how much I’ve grown and learned in the last few months. All in all, enjoying the moment in Denim. I’ve learned more about blogging, styling and myself and my ability to overcome things that could’ve taken me out but I persevered. I owe all of that to God and family!¬† Continue reading “Enjoying the moment in Denim.”
