Crafted LA + Ojai

This weekend has been action-packed full of fun. We started out our weekend by enjoying red wine and the BEST chocolate chip cookie baked in a skillet at my favorite local restaurant, The Old Place on Friday night. Yesterday, we took a trip over to Crafted LA where I met my favorite etsy seller, Karen, of Little Sweet Thing! We hit it off instantly and of course I had to sweep up more goodies for my now ever-growing collection of dessert jewelry. During our visit, I also picked up the sweetest floral crown headband and rose headband from another etsy booth. Overall, it was a great time and I definitely plan on going to more of these! After the event, we drove into Silver Lake for a friend's fiesta themed birthday party (not pictured) complete with a taco bar, serve-yourself magaritas, and a piƱata. Such a great time.

Saturday's activities:

Pretty cool art installation inside the Crafted LA warehouse


It's me and Karen from Sweet Little Thing! I still can't believe we have such similar ice cream cone phone cases! We were meant to meet!


Taking a trip over the Vincent Thomas bridge as we exited San Pedro. I love the color!

Sunday's Activities:

I've been wanting to visit Ojai for a while, so we decided to take the drive today, and as it turns out, we only live an hour away! Of course we had to stop for donuts on the way (my favorite breakfast pastry), and then we were on our merry way.


Wearing my adorable new donut ring, holding my favorite donut, the old fashioned! What's your favorite kind of donut?


Knead Baking Co. is delicious! We ordered their potato flatbread pizza and added a fried egg on top. I was in heaven.


After we walked up and down the main road in Ojai, we decided to stop off at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa to see what it's all about. I visited there with my family when I was little, but I don't remember it very well. Needless to say, I would definitely stay here now, in a heartbeat! Who wants to come?

Love the old retro vibe of this motel.
