5 Best Brunches in Downtown Los Angeles | Part 2

Aloha Cafe Little Tokyo Review
(Aloha Cafe)

It's about time I share 5 more amazing brunches in downtown Los Angeles, am I right? The first post I wrote (5 Amazing Brunches in Downtown Los Angeles) did so well (thank you!) that I knew I had to start trying new places and documenting all the worthy ones. And now, here we are!

I'm introducing Aloha Cafe, Zinc Cafe & Market, Jist Cafe, Nickel Diner and Nick's Cafe in this post, all located in downtown Los Angeles!

Tiffany Cafe Review | Tokyo, Japan

Tiffany's Cafe Tokyo Japan Review

My first piece of jewelry I was gifted was from Tiffany's and growing up, any celebratory occasion always seemed to be tied to their beautiful jewelry, so Tiffany's has always been close to my heart. When I found out they had a cafe in Tokyo, I knew I had to go the moment I had a chance!

I didn't do much research prior to going, other than figuring out where it was located in Tokyo. Thankfully the Tiffany Cafe is located in Meiji Jingu or better known as the Harajuku area, which is conveniently only one train stop away from my home station. In hindsight, I perhaps should have researched a bit more in advance since the cafe turned out to be so small that they require reservations to sit and have coffee!

Life is Beautiful Music Festival with Toyota

This post is in partnership with Toyota USA. Thank you for your continued support for Life in Wanderlust!

I've been a proud #ToyotaPartner for a couple of years now but have been a Toyota fan since I was a little girl growing up in Tokyo. My parents drove a Camry for years and it's always been a brand that I just knew to trust. Anyway, when Toyota reached out to partner with them in celebrating art and music at Life is Beautiful with their brand new 2020 Corolla, you know I couldn't say no!

10 MORE Eateries in Maui That Will Blow Your Mind

Tinroof Maui Review

It's been 3 years since I was last in Maui so I was insanely happy to be back there. Last time I went, I published 10 Eateries in Maui That Will Blow Your Mind and wow, to this day, it's the most read post I've ever written here on Life in Wanderlust, followed closely by a fellow Maui post, 10 Things To Know Before The Road To Hana. I've also received so many emails and photos from readers that let me know they read my post and visited those spots, which of course made me so happy!

So naturally, I had to share more places (TEN this time) from my trip to Maui. I was there for a week so I had plenty of time to try new places and below are my favorites from this time around.

Let's do this. If you're looking for the best places to eat in Maui, keep reading!

The Best Luau in Maui | Feast At Lele

Feast at Lele Review Maui Hawaii

Have you done the typical luau in Maui or other locations in Hawaii and looking for something similar yet different? Or, are you looking for a luau that's more adult-oriented and a little more intimate? Look no further than the Feast at Lele in Maui.

I've done a couple of the typical luaus in Hawaii, one in Honolulu on-site at a large hotel and another one in Maui, an independently run luau. When I was in Maui last, I really didn't have any plans on going to another luau, mostly because they're all kind of the same after you go to a couple.

Then we found the Feast at Lele in Maui!

Checking In: Seven Stars Resort in Turks & Caicos Islands

Seven Stars Resort Turks and Caicos

This post is in partnership with as I was a judge for their 2019 Noble Beach Prize. As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for your continued support for Life in Wanderlust!

Turks & Caicos was on my top 3 bucket list locations and honestly, I didn't think I would make it there for a while; kind of a dream, if you will. So when the opportunity came along thanks to CheapCaribbean, I quite literally jumped with joy (and maybe squealed a bit, too).

I was invited as a guest to the Seven Stars Resort in Turks & Caicos. This property was the winner for the "Golden Pineapple" of the CheapCaribbean's 2019 Noble Beach Prize! You can check out the winners for the 2019 Noble Beach Prize here and more beach-tastic posts on their blog here. I was fortunate to be one of the judges for this contest for the 2nd year in a row! Last year, I visited the Zoetry Paraiso de la Riviera Maya in Mexico.
