If you follow me on Instagram (@courtneyyquinn), you may have noticed that I have been posting at the restaurant 26 Beach lately. It is a restaurant in Venice that I am obsessed with. My first time going there was only about a month ago, but I’ve been there so many times since!
I heard about this place through friends at school. Everyone loves it and always talks about it! Although I’ve been to Sunny Spot for Sunday brunch across the street (highly recommend), I just never made my way over to 26 Beach.
Over the weekend I went again with my two roommates. Their menu offers up to TWENTY different kinds of french toast! How awesome is that! I ordered the S’mores, while my two friends got the Lemon Curd and the Very Berry.
With french toast choices ranging from the “Tiramisu” to “Caramel Macchiato,” this place is an amazing spot for brunch. Oh, did I mention how cute it is inside too? Everything is pink and fashion themed!
If you have any other Brunch recommendations in the Los Angeles area, comment below! I’m always looking to discover new places ❤
So I wasn’t planning on making a post about this, but with news of Tom Petty passing away, I thought I would make an appreciation post.
Last week I attended a Tom Petty concert at the Hollywood Bowl. He told the audience that it was his last show of a long tour, and there was no better place to end it than in beautiful Los Angeles. Continue reading “Attending Tom Petty’s Last Concert… EVER?!”
Guys. This weekend something amazing happened. Something that hasn’t happened since I left Chicago… Continue reading “Where I Found a Piece of Chicago in LA”
Back to school means getting back on that homework grind. I can never just sit in the library at school because when I look out the window over the bluff, all I want to do is go explore LA! So, I compromise by finding cute and trendy coffee shops around the city to get that sh*t done. And thankfully, one just opened up down the street from my campus! It’s called Blue Bottle — it’s one of my favorite coffee shops on Abbot Kinney and now it’s even closer! Continue reading “On the Hunt for Coffee”
Good morninggggg world.
Over this past weekend, I did a hike in Malibu that I’ve never done before! And here I thought I had done them all… Nope! I thought I would share this hike so you can do it too! Continue reading “Malibu Hike”
Today I had the day off from work and all that, so I convinced my brother and mom to go on one of my favorite LA based hikes with me. This one overlooks Santa Monica Bay and is off of Los Liones Drive in the Pacific Palisades. Continue reading “My Sunday Off | Hike & Brunch”
I hope you had a great weekend 🙂 My weekend was pretty exciting because it was my first time working at a press event. I have been to these kinds of events before, but always as a guest and never as someone running it.
A little back story: over the summer I am working at a celebrity and event PR firm in Beverly Hills. On Thursday, I got to take some of our clients down the red carpet at an event in support of breast cancer called “Babes for Boobs.” It was hosted by two of the stars of the reality show “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,’ and Sharon Osbourne presented her daughter, Kelly Osbourne, with an award.
