Temperatures are rising here in southern California and it is the perfect time to transition your wardrobe to include rompers. There are many different style of rompers but I am particularly drawn to this Francesca’s Belinda Floral Surplice Romper. It does not cling to the skin but has a nice draping of fabric that almost makes it look like a wrap dress. The pop of color on the florals evoke good summer vibes with the added tie detail. The romper has a back hidden zipper that closes the bottom half, a tie at the waist to add shape to the romper and a tie in the back near the base of the neck to close off a cool open circle. Instead of looking for several items of clothing for a cool summer vibe look just grab your romper and pair it with some tassel earrings and sandals. Right now the romper is on sale for $30!
Vibe Organic Kitchen and Juice is bustling with a busy counter of vibrant friendly millennials making organic juices, bowls and smoothies to perfection with usually a line of people waiting. This is not only a great place for the healthiest and tastiest drinks but a place for delicious plant based food that is gluten, dairy, and soy free.
The food is colorful, well presented and most of all delicious. You don’t have to be vegan to come here. But if you are – this is the place to come to bring your meat eating non vegan friends for great food.
The relaxed atmosphere is minimalistic and clean. A pink neon sign shines – good food good mood which highlights their philosophy of eating.
There are various dine in sitting configurations from two to more. However, this is not the place to linger for long lengths of time with private conversation because of the popularity of the restaurant, the juicers in nearby operation and the line of people. This is a great place for a quick casual bite.
Good Food, Good Mood
Try their tacos in their jicama shells. This outer white shell is not only attractive but crunchy, fresh and light and is a great conduit to hold the contents inside. The tacos are presented in a tray allowing the tacos to be displayed neatly in an upright position. The squash is roasted to perfection and melts in your mouth and is seasoned, flavorful and filling.

Enjoy some food that is clearly labeled for allergens such as gluten free or vegan. Enjoy ordering off the brunch menu served Fridays- Sundays all day.
