Cream & Sugar

Here are two talented friends of mine!  Always feeling enriched and loved after our hangouts.  Happy birthday to CK!  We celebrated at Cream & Sugar, a local cafe (turns out I went to college with the owner!) and it’s a great place to study, chat, drink good coffee, or eat something delicious.

The cupcakes (matcha green tea with frosting + matcha macaron) pictured below were made @byjennasea and I am normally not a sweets/dessert eating type, but her desserts are truly amazing.  She also does desserts for weddings/special events so if you ever need these services, she’s wonderful!  Also, CK is the most special agent of PR and anything PR-related, incase you need a great spin.

This post was not sponsored by them, lol.  They don’t even know I write here.

Arizona 2014

We went to visit a dear friend in Arizona, where she is currently serving in the U.S. Air Force as an Optometrist.  So proud of her!

My entire summer consisted of watching a lot of tv (not complaining about this one), taking summer classes, volunteering, and also read Gone Girl, so this was a nice getaway before the madness of school begins.

For lunch, we tried a Angel’s Trumpet Ale House (pictured below) in downtown Phoenix, and  Olive & Ivy for Jewearly’s birthday dinner in Scottsdale, AZ.  Definitely going back to that place!  It had a nice outdoor patio, marketplace, and a delicious menu (dangit, no pictures).  Spontaneously, we also got to attend the Cardinals vs. Texans’ preseason game at the University of Phoenix Stadium!  My first football game ever and tickets were really affordable ($4.50 on stubhub)!  I definitely enjoyed it, and wish I can attend another one (not for the Cardinals) in the future.
