Channeling Classy

Marion Cotillard is one of my favorite actresses. Not only is she talented but has that classy, chic French style that I adore. Or as the expression goes, that je n’sais pas….No wonder she is on Dior’s ad campaign.

These boots were made for walking…

I think it was when the bottom half of my legs were submerged in a puddle (or quite possibly a small river) walking through campus that I realized one thing and one thing only: I need rain boots. I used to think they were silly and unnecessary for San Diego, but after today I’m definitely going out and buying a pair.

My favorite B’s…

Breakfast, beach, bike rides…all in one sunday morning. Throw in my good friends and I couldn’t ask for more. I highly suggest checking out The Mission- with three locations in Mission Beach, downtown, and North Park- the best breakfast in SD! Delicious!

El Camino

The other night my roommate mentioned happy hour and margaritas…and I immediately thought of some delicious mexican food. Having heard about El Camino, we decided to go check out this restaurant located in South Park of San Diego. We arrived just in time for happy hour and ordered sangaria and margaritas (which were in a glass boots haha). We liked the 60’s art deco style of the place and the trippy virgin mary lights. The food was fresh and I especially liked the three different flavors of salsas that came along with the bowl of chips. A unique, fun place different than most Mexican restaurants in SD. http://www.elcaminosd.com/

Butternut Squash Pasta Shells

Butternut squash is in season and it has such a great taste- not too sweet and when combined with other flavors (like ricotta cheese) can be very savory. For a lazy afternoon (this recipe does take some time) this makes a delicious lunch. The recipe calls to bake the squash for 45 minutes, but my tip is to check on it around 25-30 minutes to make sure nothing is getting burnt. Have some friends over and enjoy!
