Renegade Craft Fair

This past weekend I had the chance to go to the Renegade Craft Fair. The location was moved this year to one of my favorite places in the city, Grand Park.

We had a great time looking at all the artisan crafts, learning about their techniques, and getting inspired. There were booths with jewelry, hair accessories, chocolates, jams, furniture, prints, handmade clothing, photography, ceramics, baby toys, blankets, bags, and so much more.

There were so many booths we had to take a break for lunch at Belcampo in Grand Central Market where we refueled with delicious hamburgers.

I walked away with a turkish towel from The Folding Room ($30), gold heart stud earrings ($5), a soy candle made in downtown LA by P.F. Candle Co. ($11), and a coral headband from The Perfect Hair Ties ($16).  I’m really in love with all my purchases, especially this towel. I read about turkish towels on a lot of travel blogs and wanted to get one for our trip to Japan this fall. I love how small it is in my swim bag & how quickly it dries. I hung it up when I came back from the pool and it was dry in under 2 hours!

Even though I spent more than I meant to, it’s nice to support the local artists and many gave us discounts for shopping at the fair. Please check out their stores from the links above & support. Renegade will be back in LA December 14th & 15th.

Porto’s Bakery & Cafe

Recently I visited Porto’s, a famous bakery located in Burbank. They have so many insanely delicious pastries and desserts for very inexpensive prices.

There’s always a line but it moves very quickly. I actually needed that time to stare at all the beautiful desserts and pick what I wanted. It can be overwhelming to pick, especially for a first-timer, so I recommend sticking with their classics: the guava and cheese pastry ($.75), the cheese roll ($.70), and a few potato balls ($.90/ea).

Who’s Cookin’: Porto’s Bakery & Cafe
Where: 315 N Brand Blvd (Burbank)
What I Ate: This time around I got a cheese roll ($.75) and a spinach feta croissant($1.55) which I ate before I could take a picture of it (first world problems).
