Brunch ideas

Hello My friends! It always feels so long when I write. Only a week but feels like more. We survived spring break over here. I know some kids are still out. My kids are back at school. Of course the week goes so fast. I was busy, David my oldest had practice still so our days were still school like. And Breaker just likes to be home, Lol. I’m cool with that. Unless you are out of town, it’s so busy everywhere. The cool thing is we only have about a month in a half left of school and summer break starts. We have a few trips planned. Nothing big this year, We are hoping for next year to visit the hubbies motherland, Yucatan. We really want to do a family trip and to visit Tulum. So putting it out there in the universe that this family trip will happen next year!

So Today’s Post is Brunch ideas. I put together a Brunch for Easter. It was a smaller group, so I was doing all the cooking. I wanted it to be easy, pretty and delicious. I didn’t want to be stuck in the kitchen or cooking that morning. I love to enjoy my own parties. I found most of my ideas from Pinterest. Pinterest has been my jam for 8 years. I actually found a lot of bloggers I follow now from pinterest. So it’s my OG source. You can follow me also on Pinterest. I try to pin fun stuff all week.

I went with an easy decor I love simplicity I mean hello, Style Sencillo (simple). I went to the LA flower mart and I already had in mind what flowers I wanted. Made the trip easier, The hubs was happy about that.I whipped up some easy arrangements! Watching my mom for years making arrangements kinda helped out, It’s not hard and actually very fun. I bought white linen last year before christmas from LA, It’s honestly a good investment to buy your own linen rather than renting. I bought some linen square pieces from Joannes fabric and tie dyed them to get a boho look. I used a tan color tie dye. For my first time alone I think they came out pretty good. I actually want to get some linen napkins and do them a nice grey color tie dye.

For food, Ok this is the fun part. I wanted to find easy recipes that I can prep the night before, I found all of them on pinterest which makes this easy, I’ll link the recipes. Not pictured, First was an Egg casserole, Came out delicious.Also not pictured, Second was a french toast casserole, also great. I made some mini egg, bacon and cheese croissant sandwiches and some mini cuban sandwiches. All were great and prepped the night before. I just placed all in the oven when guest arrived.  I also got some fresh bagels and cut them in half so it wasn’t so overwhelming. I put together some yogurt parfaits, with granola and coconut on the side. The mini bowls for parfaits are from party city. I placed some strawberries and orange slices for a touch of fruit. Big sis bought some mini glaze donuts from krispy kreme, that was a hit! Super easy and don’t forget the mimosa bar! Happy brunching.

Till next post.

Sunday brunch vibes

Hello Hermosas! Another week done! I hope all my LA ladies are keeping cool. It’s so HOT, I can’t function. So I hope this post makes sense, LOL! Any plans this weekend? Well if yes, I got you covered for a possible weekend outfit! One of my favorite things to eat is Breakfast! So one of my favorite things to do is Brunch. My guy loves lunch so Brunch is our happy medium! My other favorite is FASHION! So lets talk about this cute outfit I put together with Brunch on my mind!

I found this peach ruffle bottom dress online from Forever 21. The day I happened to look they were having a sale called black friday in July! I got this dress for $9. I’m always a little skeptical on ordering dresses online. Reason since we’re all friends I can tell you. I have abig bust and small bottom. A trick is I try to stay away from more fitted dresses when ordering online and dresses without zippers. Just a little helpful hint if you have my issue. This dress has a zipper but I can tell by the picture it was a more loose fit. So it was perfect. I matched it up with an oversized denim jacket to give it more of a fun casual look. Of course it’s so hot here in LA you can ditch the jacket! The denim jacket I found at H&M. I love the denim jackets from there. Always good quality and reasonable. The shoes I talked about on my previous post!

A little story on the Jade bracelets I have on. Since I can remember I’ve always wanted some. We took a trip to San Francisco in April of course we walked through china town. I told my big guy that I always wanted some Jade Bracelets so we went in a little jewelry store and I got them! One thing I love about my Guy is if I tell him a story about my past whether it be something I wanted or wanted to do as a kid or young adult. He tries to make it happen. It’s one of the many things I love about him. Ladies I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Till next post!
