Voltaire Coffee House Date

Voltaire Coffee House Date

Who said shades of green are only appropriate for fall? I live for olive tones and dark greens during winter. But besides that, happy holidays! Christmas is around the corner and I have definitely procrastinated this year. I just purchased all of my Christmas gifts and I think I need a couple more. Let’s hope I don’t forget anyone. What was I going to say? Oh yeah! I finally got to visit a coffee shop that has been on my boyfriend’s bucket list for a while and guess what? They had a Spanish Latte. If you weren’t aware, my boyfriend and I became obsessed over Spanish lattes after our trip to Venice Beach. So when we see Spanish latte on a coffee menu, you bet we are going to order it and compare. Here’s my review, when are we going back to Venice? Honestly, the latte was good, but not great. My sister also tagged along and ordered the chai latte. Let’s just say she went nuts! We are the complete opposite, she loves tea and chi, and well I love coffee. Wait, I haven’t mentioned the name of the coffee shop. Wow, Lupita, well it’s Voltaire Coffee House and it’s located in the heart of San Jose which is basically downtown if you ask me. Will I visit again? Yes! I think I need to give it another chance, to be honest. It has a cool vibe to it and the interior is so cute.

Monday Motivation: It’s Okay To Be Vegetarian

Monday Motivation: It’s Okay To Be Vegetarian

It isn’t hard to transition into vegetarianism, maybe turning straight vegan, but letting go of meat isn’t that difficult. If you are focused and know why you are transitioning you should be fine. Sure the smell of chicken wings or tacos de carnitas (pork tacos) might tingle your taste buds. But there will always be a constant reminder of why you turned vegetarian. Maybe to be healthier or because you’re an animal activist and want to save all the animals in the world, who knows. (more…)

The Vegetarian Wizard

The Vegetarian Wizard

 

I have always been a big Harry Potter fan. Constantly watching all eight movies over and over again as I struggled to remember the magic spells. Waving my chopstick left and right screaming “obliviate”! Sure nothing would happen but it was fun. I only wished that my mom didn’t stop me from reading all the books when I was younger. According to her Mexican resources, they had announced that all Harry Potter books were evil. It was all because the books talked about magic spells and wizards. So I never had the chance to read them until now. (more…)
