Voltaire Coffee House

Happy Friday, and welcome back to another one of my Food Series post! Today we are visiting  Voltaire Coffee House, a coffee shop that is located in downtown San Jose. Let me just say that I was immediately impressed with this place. I absolutely adored the aesthetic of this place, wood table plants all over the place. It was such a simple little place and gave off such a calming vibe. Let me show you what all the fuss is about.

Updated | Hair Care Routine

I always get a ton of questions in regards to my hair. Whether it may be about how I style it, my color (it's natural by the way), or what kind of products I use. As time goes by, the products I use tend to change for one reason or another so because of that today I'm going to share yet another updated hair care routine with you guys. In my past hair care posts, I've gone a lot more in-depth with the back story of my hair journey and how I brought it back to its healthy stage, how many times per week I actually wash, and how often I heat style my hair. All of that still remains the same so if you haven't read any of those previous posts I'll just leave the link right here for you to check it out. In this post, I'm going to dive straight into the products I've been using on my hair for the last six months or more. Now there's only one thing left to do and that's to begin this post!

The Painted Lady

Yesterday Rudy and I spent the early part of the day in San Francisco, what else is new? We checked out a coffee shop, enjoyed our lattés and ate some yummy treats. It was a beautiful day, actually, it was a beautiful weekend to be specific. It finally felt like Spring was upon us. After our coffees, we decided to stop at the Alamo Square Park where the infamous Painted Ladies houses are located. While we were here enjoying the day we snapped a few photos with that I wanted to share a quick outfit post for you guys since it has literally been forever since I last posted one. I really want to start sharing a lot more outfit of the day posts with you guys. With warmer days to come, I'm hoping it'll be something I get to share a lot more often.


Loving: all the new coffee shops I've been visiting! If you guys haven't been following me lately, Rudy and I have really been on a roll with visiting tons of different coffee shops around the Bay Area and I am absolutely loving it! I never thought that I would become that person who enjoys venturing off and trying different "café" shops. I used to hate coffee when I was younger and it wasn't until a little over a couple of years ago that I truly found a love for coffee. It's something I look forward every morning to wake up and make my delicious cup of iced coffee. I have a list of different shops we want to go to and little by little we've been crossing them off. It has become a favorite routine of ours to do come the weekends. I even like to call myself a coffee enthusiast haha! I have a couple pending food series post on some coffee shops we recently been to that I have yet to share. I'm hoping to put in some time to work on at least one of them to share sometime this month. The weather in the Bay Area has been filled with rain and it looks like we'll finally have some nice sunny days ahead which is great. Hopefully, this weekend we get to visit another coffee place that I have really been wanting to check out. I have my eye on quite a few of their lattés!

Revisiting Old Favorites

It has been some time since I have shared a monthly favorites related post, well over a year to be exact. Creating a monthly favorites post used to be a post I look forward all month to do. However, some months I did feel some pressure in having to put the content out even though I didn't have much to share or talk about. I gave up on sharing monthly favorites all together and today I thought it would be fun if we revisit some of my old favorites with you guys. I will share whether I'm still loving some of the products I once raved about and I'll even throw in a product or two that I no longer enjoy. I'm thinking of maybe sharing a few posts like this if it ends up being something my readers enjoy. I'm really excited about this so let's begin.

SPRO Coffee Lab

Welcome back to another Food Series post! For a couple of months now I have been on a coffee shop kick trying to find all these new coffee shops for Rudy and myself to visit. Recently Rudy had come across this coffee shop called SPRO Coffee Lab and I was immediately sold by their unique coffee flavors, not to mention their coffee art! We were determined to visit this "coffee lab" on our next venture to San Francisco, and today I'm taking you along with me on our visit!
