Natalie lives a vintage, mid-century lifestyle and if I would only work harder, I would do my hair and dress like it too. One day…
With that said, I decided to show you a bit of my new neighborhood. I live at the edge of 3 cities – cross a street and you’re somewhere else. That’s the suburbs for ya!
Anaheim is the home of Disneyland, just a few blocks away, but downtown Anaheim is being revived in a big way. The Packing District opened up earlier this summer – it’s an old orange packing house made into a fancy food court a la The Ferry Building.
Just one road down and across the street is Center Street Promenade.
I’m obsessed with Ink & Bean for their simple menu and decor.
I sat outdoors to read Sexy by Nature. There’s also a free library in an Airstream trailer!
Next door is a fancy but pricey cheese shop.
There’s a trio of men’s shops on the other side of Ink & Bean, including Barbeer – get your hair cut and a drink.
But I mostly lounging around waiting for Home Eco:Nomics to open. The store is small but mighty.
I ended up buying jewelry. Earrings and now rings?! The ring says, “I promise to look on the bright side” from Whitney Howard Designs.
Finally, I stopped by Healthy Junk, a vegan restaurant in their “Good Food” food court, for watermelon juice.
What a great way to start the day!
I even visited my family, cleaned my car, and am about to shower for the evening!
