Pastries, Roses and Glamour

Hello lovelies! Back to Monday! I had a great time at the Lucky Shops event in Hollywood.  I scored some awesome stuff including a gorgeous House of Harlow necklace that I haven't even taken off! I also did my weekly thrift shopping and found some really old books on roses that have the most amazing pictures in them. What else, Oh how could I forget to tell you! I found a vintage Bally purse in mint condition! Yes Bally!! I squeeled with joy when I found it hiding behind of bunch of purses in the very very back! You never know what you're going to find out there! I hope you all have a great week ;) Keep it glam! xo

The director and I went to this delish little hole in the wall Cuban spot to eat and it was super old school. We loved all the pastries!






Yummy empanadas I devoured these!

I had never drank yerba mate soda before, it was super good!

(I loved the bright yellow walls in the bakery)
