You were born to stand out

It is a tragic thing when we reject our individuality to fit in with the crowd . We are conditioned from the time we are children to believe that we have to be just like everyone else, but no one destined for greatness ever fits in. 
 
Let me say that again, No one destined for GREATNESS ever fits in. I have always been one to color outside of the lines, or zig when everyone else zagged, and not everyone appreciates different, but different is what I bring to the table. Embracing your uniqueness is a liberating thing.

Being true to yourself when everyone wants you to exist in a box is not always easy, but stay true to who you are even if you are misunderstood. Don't be afraid of being different, be afraid of being like everyone else. Leave mediocrity to the masses and embrace  your identity and your call for excellence. After all, Dr. Seuss says: Why fit in when you were born to stand out?

Red Alert!

This is the perfect time of year to paint the town RED. This vibrant color brings the heat to any ensemble and is a great power color. With Valentines Day right around the corner, a little red is a great color to put an exclamation point in your outfit.

This flirty skirt is so flattering and perfect for 
Valentines Day or any day you 
want to wear something that POPs

Heat to toe red is a stunning look

Do you like the color red?

Be Bold, Be Beautiful, Be You!

The Yellow Vase (LV's LA)

I love a great cup of coffee and I love beautiful places. Paint that with a yellow paint brush and ocean breezes and you have "The Yellow Vase." This bright cozy eatery is adorned with bright yellow flowers, yellow walls and decor that feels bright and cheery.
 
 I discovered this South Bay eatery during my nature walks and jogs around the Palos Verdes Peninsula more than a decade ago. There are now a few more locations around the South Bay area.  I like a little ocean with my food and this  beachy gal  always loves a great spot by a scenic body of water. This cute coffee shop eatery is a nice place to sit and enjoy coffee while you hear waves crash and is a great backdrop to have a cappuccino and a treat with friends or a light lunch or dinner. I have been to all of the locations and enjoy each one for different reasons, but they are all in beach communities, so you can't go wrong with any of the locations.

Everything is yellow and bright:-)

The french toast comes warm with a dusting of powdered sugar and a side of maple syrup. The turkey and avocado panini shown at the beginning of the post and many of the other items are tasty, but what keeps me coming back is the delicious coffee and the view of the ocean. I much prefer the drinks over the food. The newest location is not as close to the water, but still has a great vibe and is relaxing and cozy.

This is the perfect spot if you want to be hidden
 away and enjoy some solitude and it is just as great for gathering with a few friends
 
Fresh flowers are always the perfect touch to a 
great dining experience
 

I can never resist a good red velvet cupcake


Delicious vanilla latte
 

 Delicious coffee, teas, cappucino, latte's and the ocean breeze around you. What's not to love?
