7 Reasons Why Brunch is a MUST at Outpost {The Goodland in Goleta}

As soon as we drove up to The Goodland Hotel located in beautiful Goleta, just miles north of downtown Santa Barbara, we were instantly obsessed. And I mean, instantly. Everything from the font used on their signage, the dreamy airstream trailers and green grass lawn out front, the eclectic decor and vibrant colors all throughout, the laid-back Southern California facade that transports you to a swank yet breezy Palm Springs hotel in the 70’s — yeah, I’d say The Goodland had me at hello.

Ocean Views + BYOBooze {Malibu Seafood}

::: originally published August 28, 2015 :::

Okay, so, it was one of those Fridays when you just need a serious end-of-week decompression, so Brett and I set out for some ocean views and seafood.  As I was sitting in Friday PCH traffic ::blegh:: I started searching for a new spot with coastal views and a reasonable price range (sorry not sorry, Nobu).

Suddenly, I remembered Malibu Seafood — don’t ask me how, but I think it was a Divine intervention. I saw that it was BYOB (score!) so I pulled off at the Malibu Canyon Ralph’s, grabbed a sixer of Blue Moon Summer …

The Only Time You’ll *Really* Crave a Salad {Greens Up!}

True story: when I first heard that Greens Up! was coming to my area, I screamed… at. work. (not my finest moment)

IMG_1213IMG_1213

When Brett + I lived in Santa Monica, our apartment was spitting distance from this place on Montana Ave — and we took advantage of its close proximity weekly.  This fast-casual joint that serves salad only is anything but boring.

The Jarvis salad {romaine, roasted turkey, croutons, tomato, smoked bacon, Swiss cheese, bleu cheese, and a roasted garlic dressing} is …

Best Kept Secret: The Old Place & Cornell Winery {Agoura Hills}

The Old Place is a tiny cabin tucked away in the canyon, which gives it that extra special, quiet mountain charm. You would never guess you were 20 miles from LA! Located off of Kanan and Mulholland, The Old Place is nestled in between Troutdale and Cornell Winery (which I’d say is pretty convenient). As soon as you pull up to it, you’d think you were in the old wild west — or at least how I imagine the old wild west 😉 Some guests even rode up on horses!

A Favorite Caffeine Fix: BeanoVino {Newbury Park}

There’s really nothing better than a cute little coffee shop that serves delicious lattes, invites you to sit in a comfy over-sized chair, and use their free wifi… until you discover they also serve wine.  So now you’re only dilemma is what to order. Coffee. No, wine. No… coffee {I mean, it’s only 11 AM so I guess it’s coffee ;)}.

Those are just a few of the reasons why we love BeanoVino in the Dos Vientos Ranch community of Newbury Park, located in their Village Center.

It may be a little out of the way, but it really is the perfect place to …
