For reals. My goodness. Brussel sprouts, burgers, pizza, kale salad, s’mores and more. Are you joking? Great vegan food in a beautiful old theater. The bathrooms are rad too, by the way. So if you’re in the neighborhood (or not! We drove there at dinner time and it took about 90 minutes!) go eat some vegan goodness at Mohawk Bend on Sunset in Echo Park, Los Angeles!

Yup, I wore this again.

And I was back here by the pool and on the beach again. Wearing map leggings, again. Some things are just too perfectly comfortable and fab to not wear again as soon as they’re out of the wash.

Of course, I chase it with a giant raw cacao shake. XOXO

My mother in law is so very generous and has bought me some beautiful things from Hidden Treasures in Topanga Canyon, California. She brought me the dress below when she visited on Easter weekend. I costumed it up quite a bit on the first wear but I think I'll do something cleaner and more simple next time I wear it. It was really cold outside!

I love love love Cafe Gratitude.  They are a chain of vegan and mostly raw restaurants in northern California. I'm happy to say on my recent trip to the bay area that I stopped in for a meal at all but one of their establishments! And here is their menu in case you're not familiar with their brand of original-amazing-servings-of-love: http://cafegratitude.com/menu. Please click through to start salivating.

So recently I was in New York and spent time searching around Brooklyn for veggie places to eat. I was happy to find a place called Healthy Nibbles. When I walked in I grabbed their take away menu to peruse. And what did I find? See for yourself: http://www.healthynibbles.com/drinks.html . Now, this is only going to make sense if you have familiarized yourself with Cafe Gratitude's menu. Please tell me they know and love each other. Because even the fonts are similar. It's all love peeps, but this Healthy Nibbles place did not sit well with this faithful Gratitude-Girl.
