We love our spring flats, like wow. The demure are on of my favorites because of the plain color and detail in the lace pattern. They match with just about anything and work in a casual and fancy setting, depending on how you outfit them. 

Remember to save this weekend on flats with code, FLATS at checkout!

Life is busy. Life is fast. Life is just plain crazy. So I say this: get away. No, not run away. Get away just for a little while. Whatever it takes to bring you back to a state of sanity. Because I don't know about you, but sometimes my brain and emotions and even my body can only handle so much. Though working out or even talking on the phone can release stress for me, but sometimes the best way is to just be. To find a quiet place away and just breathe in the fresh air and not think. I know, that's a hard thing to do. To find a quiet place. To find fresh air. And lastly, to not think. But it's possible and often times more necessary for ourselves than we realize. If you can't doing this on a daily basis, try to find some time during your weekend to just be outdoors. It doesn't have to be a beach. It can be a local park or playground. Swing on a swing or sit on a park bench. Don't play with your phone. Don't even bring a book. Just be.  Did you know that when people are on lunch breaks and still browsing their phones or even reading a magazine, that's not a break for them mentally? Their brain is still being stimulated so you don't recharge like you think you really would. So this post is different than most posts I've written, but I think it's a reminder that we all need especially in this fast-paced world that we live in where it's always GO! GO! GO! When sometimes all we need is the permission to STOP.

Thanks for having me, Blowfish Shoes! Much Love, Ilene (aka illy) of Much Love, illy

One of my favorite parts of living in a city is the diversity of cuisine. I love asian, indian, japanese and really, anything ethnic. I love spicy foods, trying new things and places. Since I moved to LA a year and a half ago, I've done plenty of exploring and I've now I have a bunch of favorite places. For all of our LA friends, these are a must try! For anyone else, a perfect reason to come visit! 

Samosa House

 

Cheap, casual and delicious. All of their entrees are vegetarian and mostly vegan. They have two locations, and the one on Washington & Sepulveda near me has an awesome community seating space and a little grocery with fun Indian ingredients and spices. 

 

Tara's Himalayan

 

This place is much like Indian, but better, spicier. I love the vegetable korma and the spinach naan. The yak chili is a must try, but not as easy on the tummy, as you might imagine.

 

Barnyard

 

This place might be my ultimate favorite. Farm to table idea with a lovely staff, perfect portions and a nice vibe. I love to sit at the bar with a nice glass of wine & some grilled bread.


Sage

 

Sage is a vegan delight with delicious craft beers. There's a location in Echo Park, and one that just opened on near Sepulveda and Venice with a fun little beer garden. I heard they recently added buffalo cauliflower to the menu, so I'm anxious to try it.

 

Mohawk Bend

 

The best buffalo cauliflower, ever. And delicious beer. And amazing atmosphere; the space is a renovated theatre. Definitely go here.

 

Nong La

 

If you're a fan of bahn mi, don't ask questions, just go here. YUM!!!

Hi Ladies, 

Let's talk about dealbreakers. You know, those peeves and irks you just can't let go of... We all have them. Some shallow, others not, but all very much important. The goal of finding a mate, is sticking withthem for a long time- so if there's something you can't stand... it's best to avoid it. Keep looking, because your perfect dealbreaker-free man is out there somewhere!

Here are some of my dealbreakers: 

White sock & dress shoes. I had a piano teacher growing up that did this all the time and it drove me crazy even at 8 years young. It's something I just don't think I'll be able to let go of. Dealbreaker!

Cats. I understand there's a lot of cat lovers out there, but I'm not one of them. Too much hair, and the whole poop inside deal makes me incredibly uncomfortable.

Too much hair gel. While this might seem shallow, any guy using loads of gel is caring too vain for me. I like a man who can look just as good with a full beard or a clean shave.

Gym rat. I like my men active, but when I see signs of gym rat, I run. It's all about balance for me and dating a gym rat would really shame me out of too many girl scout cookies- I can't be having that.

Smart cars. I'm sorry, but they're just too small for a real man. 

What are some of your personal dealbreakers? Comment below!

xo, 

Lindsey
