San Diego, California (Day Trip)

I had a Portland trip planned this weekend but our flights were canceled because of the weather conditions out there. I was extremely excited about the Portland trip and had our itinerary planned and everything but the weather was out of my hands so we headed out to San Diego as a last minute getaway. Thanks to my trip cancellation I discovered a few beautiful spots in San Diego and just had to share with you all! Links to the items pictured in this post are down below!

Harbor- My new favorite spot for breakfast/brunch in San Diego. It’s not only incredibly photogenic but it also has some pretty bomb food! I felt like I was having a moment from Ratatouille haha!  I had chilaquiles but I don’t even like other chilaquiles that aren’t made by my momma but these were basically identical in taste! dsc_1103dsc_1110dsc_1113

Little Italy- After breakfast we were right smack in the middle of little Italy and obviously we had to take a little walk of exploration. We ran into Piazza Basilone a tribute to Basilone a Marine that fought for his country with so much courage, strength, and honor. They had the most beautiful world fountain made of mosaic tiles!dsc_1119dsc_1130dsc_1131dsc_1142dsc_1158dsc_1159dsc_1160dsc_1161

Cafe Gratitude- This spot is beautiful definitely took home some inspiration for my future home! I loved the ambiance, the greenery, everything about it was perfection. We only had a small snack but it’s bookmarked in my yelp app!

Balboa Park- Seriously one of my favorite parks. It gives me major nostalgia from being in Madrid and taking little walks around the city after meetings and eating at amazing little restaurants. This park offers around 13 museums and has a few different street performers as well, I could spend the whole day here! dsc_1223dsc_1225dsc_1237dsc_1241dsc_1246dsc_1264dsc_1284dsc_1291dsc_1303

Rooftop – It was starting to sprinkle but I just had to head out to a pretty little rooftop lounge before we left for the day!

Galentine’s Day Weekend Ideas

I’m here today sharing some cute ideas for you and all your girlfriends as well as a cute little red dress. Every year I want to have a Galentine’s get together but every year I simply fail. Mainly because of one main reason…my best friends live far away… this is sort of recent within the last few years but I have some more fabulous girls I know are totally Galentine’s day worthy!

Okay, so let’s get into it!

My first idea is a Galentine’s day Brunch, lunch or din din! I’ve done this with one of my best friends…I slept over at her house for three days on our last day we woke up nice and late, made some eggs, pancakes and poured some orange juice and champagne to have our morning brunch mimosa! She has an adorable hacienda type house so we sat outside, played some music and just enjoyed each other’s company and laughs!

Another cute idea is having a Galentine’s day picnic! Either at a cute park or your backyard…and if it is in your backyard I think serving some wine, cheese, crackers, grapes, strawberries, and other yummy little bites on the grass sitting atop some giant pillows would be so fun! Our family also has a movie projector so we could all watch our favorite chick flicks on the screen outside.

Then there’s always going out of course, for brunch, lunch, or dinner! Dressing up and having a good time at your favorite restaurants. This tends to be my very last choice only because it’s always so packed everywhere.

Lastly, a trip!!!!! A little getaway to somewhere fun or in my case… a visit to one of my best friends home..maybe vancouver for the weekend or good ol’ Arizona! Or book a hotel somewhere in between!

I hope I gave you some ideas and I hope you have a great Valentine’s/Galentine’s/Brolentine’s weekend!! I’ll be wearing this little red dress this weekend…if the sun decides to shine.

XOXO, Elle.
