explorer of life, explorer of the internet

i have been LOVING the super cold, cloudy weather in los angeles lately. it finally feels like fall and the holiday season! which means i get to wear super warm, cozy clothes and sip gingerbread lattes everyday. mmm!

{addiction in full swing}

i've also been making some great new discoveries, both in real life and in blogland. here are a few of them:

if you live in los angeles and just happened to wonder where to get the best chai latte in the world, then let me tell you, it's at the alcove cafe & bakery! along with the best desserts, a cute outside patio, and a plethora of cool characters.

brandi blogged about the turkey cake last week and i just had to share the cleverness/disgustingness here. it's an entire thanksgiving dinner all rolled into one giant cake. please go read the ingredients, it's sort of mind-blowing in a totally amazing and *gross* sort of way.

if you are living in the states, and celebrating thanksgiving tomorrow, then you might enjoy the cute free printables found on kind over matter. there's all sorts of thanksgiving cards, decorations, and art {including a "keep calm & gobble on" print}!
