Too Fresh to Forget :: A Farm-to-Table Experience with Ocean Views

I recently went to Malibu Farm again {thanks to this gorgeous summer-like weather we are having right now!} and fell in love again– and so did Reese!  I mean the food, the ocean views, the adorable decor, and now they have expanded and added a full restaurant and bar as well as as Espresso Bar at the beginning of the pier.

We took one for the team and tried out pretty much everything on their seasonal menu. …

Clean Eating Is The New Spring Cleanse {local eats}

Spring cleanses don’t have to be torture. With the ever-growing abundance of healthy, clean eating options – the 805 has got you covered.

Finch & Fork + Rooftop Wine Tasting at The Canary Hotel {Santa Barbara}

My mom and I spent the day in Santa Barbara together and were looking for a good breakfast spot. Usually, we stop at Esau’s for authentic huevos rancheros and breakfast burritos, but this time we were looking for something new and came across Finch & Fork at The Canary Hotel.
