In Collaboration with One Colorado
Last weekend I did an Instagram takeover with one of my go-to shopping spots in Pasadena – One Colorado, and along the way I discovered fun new places and visited some of my old tried-and-true staples. At the top of my list? Il Fornaio! This Italian Eatery is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner, brunch with girlfriends or even just an afternoon coffee pick-me-up. Their coffee is always perfectly brewed and their dinners transport you to Italy, so there’s no question why I love it so much! My next spot was Sugarfina. Something about this little candy boutique always manages to lure me in and has me leaving with a handful of sweets. Their shop is perfectly decorated with pretty pastels and they are outfitted with every candy under the sun so you’re guaranteed to leave with something you’ll love. Sugarfina is great for gifts, pretty Instagram pictures (sorry, I’m such a blogger!) or to pick up something sweet to snack on. Of course, since this was a weekend takeover it included date night! Boyfriend and I always love to have dinner at Sushi Roku. Whether we watch the chefs prepare the rolls while sitting at the sushi bar, or have a cozy table for two, it’s always one of our favorite places to go on Friday and Saturday nights. Lastly, you guys know that I always love fresh flowers and pretty flower shops, so when I discovered Gilly Flower shop it was love at first sight! They have a gorgeous assortment of bouquets and individual stems so you can create your own arrangement, or pick up one of their expertly crafted ones. TWIGZZ at One Colorado is also a new favorite of mine and is the perfect place to stop for fresh succulents. 

I hope you enjoyed hearing about some of my favorite places in Pasadena! This wonderful city is full of history and charm so I could go on forever, but these are just a few of my faves. I’d love to hear some of your favorite spots in Pasadena! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
