Kimchi in France

If you want to take a quick trip to France, this is the place! Republique is a modern french restaurant that serves amazing brunch and coffee... AND cocktails! It is located in West Hollywood. I treated myself to hot chamoille tea and Kimchi + Fried rice with eggs. If you don't know me enough, I'm a hardcore Kimchi fan. It was an instant decision when I saw it on the menu! It tasted like heaven. The spot is also beautiful. Lots of natural light from above. The skylight in the restaurant is to die for. Instagram-worthy.

I wanted to escape...somewhere cool and hip. I knew Ojai and Solvang were places that I could hop, skip and a jump from Los Angele for a hot minute. My girl ended up driving while I was dealing with the emails nonstop but got to glance at the Mother's Nature, we finally arrived at Bart's bookstore super late but it was worth the drive. It was an open air book place where you could bring your pups and have your coffee, maybe have to our conversations. My girl and I can go on and on for five hours but we knew the Sun would go down so we were able to meet and greet people very quickly. The weather was just perfect. I even found some ASL books!

 I heard about this little cute healthy local vegan, I am a meat lover but promised a friend that I would go vegan for a few days. I was hungry so I ordered a mexican burrito and it was delicious. The little cute cafe is called Hip Vegan, 28 E Ojai Ave, Ojai, CA. Do yourself a favor, just go!
