Sipp Curated Goods…

My love for coffee culture hasn’t wavered & I been quietly working on a pet project, Sipp Curated Goods. A place where I could selfishly curate my favorite coffee related gifts, goodies, & art.

In the last few years, coffee culture has grown into a full force of talented people & community driven by the same love of one drink. Its crazy. 

I never thought about how much that ritual gets my day going. My day doesn’t start without it. Then one day it hit me, “I really love this hobby”. My day job consists of making things beautiful & searching for cool, beautiful pieces. So this was just a natural progression. A small place of my own where I could be creative & share the humor & creativity that this small drink brings out in folks. Here we go, ready or not…

dodger stadium & montejo…

it’s summer & i’ve been spending a lot of time at dodger stadium. i’ve finally have come to appreciate the little things about this glorious park. the lights, the game, & yes all the delicious food! montejo beer along with latina bloggers connect, were gracious enough to invite us to an incredible dinner by the dodger dugout. chef edie ruiz (corazon y miel) arranged the most beautiful tailgate-inspired spread. the night was so much fun & i’m so happy to have been apart of this amazing group of people.

coffee chats…

just had a recent coffee date with fellow instagram/twitter friend (and now real friend!) chermelle aka the coffeetographer from smdlr.com. it’s a nice thing to connect with people via social media. many of your followers share the same interests and likes, so it’s nice to venture past our phones & meet in real life. we chatted about where we grew up, passions, & why we love being in the presence of coffee shops. 

nestled behind a flower lined bush, we met at bar nine collective in culver city. with just days being open, this beautiful coffee shop has managed to pick up quite the following amongst the growing la coffee community.

vacation daydreams…

it feels like my early vacation to a little border town from puerto vallarta was so long ago. non-touristy, boca de tomatlan was the perfect place to lay low, relax & enjoy late nights laughing with friends. the days were filled with epic views of the coastal terrains & no shortage of homemade prepared meals. it’s safe to say it was paradise, even if for a few sweet days…
