MNGO CAFE

Uncategorized

I finally did something notable this weekend that I can share with you guys! Honestly how real time bloggers find the time and energy to do stuff consistently even though they sometimes have days worth of content is mind boggling to me.

I can’t even find the energy to do my makeup most days! This weekend was my uncles birthday and we were going to go out and celebrate. So I dressed up all cute, makeup all done up (even my hair was freshly washed and styled!) only to have plans cancelled!

Now I wasn’t going to waste a cute outfit and makeup by washing it off and getting back into my jammies! I was committed to doing something!

Ok I’ll get to the point now. No need to annoy you guys with my ranting. We went out to do some errands and decided to have lunch at Dumpling Inn / Shanghai Saloon. This spot is OG and it’s so good. I’ve been going there since before it became this happening spot. It used to be a tiny restaurant with only four or five tables! I didn’t take any pictures so sorry about that but take my word for it this place is amazing!

For dessert we went to MNGO Cafe! It is so cute on the inside, and they even have an adorable mange tree in the middle with seating which makes for a perfect instagram shot!

But what about the dessert! Did it meet my expectations! Well I had no idea what to expect because I have never had a Kakirogi before but you better believe it was incredible!

If you’re going to order one it is definitely something to split! Especially after just having eaten. It was a huge dessert!

Bottom layer of mango jelly topped with mango shaved ice, mango chunks. Cream to top it off and mango custard and mango syrup to add on as well! It was a glorious explosion of mango! Definitely worth every single sugary bite!

The Closet Makeover

This has been a long time coming but I am finally pulling the trigger on this. We’re renting our apartment so I can’t go overboard….but it’s finally going to happen. This whole makeover probably won’t cost me a fortune either because I’ll be going to Ikea and buying some things from amazon.

Now, my mom was an interior designer so a lot of my design eye I learned from her. And I like to be a little more meticulous about how I’m going to organize things! Nobody likes buying furniture only to find out that it won’t fit in the space!

So first things first. I take some measurements and write them down. Graph paper will be ideal for drawing out your space but I didn’t have any around the house so I just used printer paper. You already have your measurements so putting them to scale won’t be difficult because you can just use 10” as your scale.

Now that we have drawn out our space look up different furniture that you would feel can work in your space! I had originally thought that putting this Ikea bookcase standing was going to be the way to go, but the truth of the matter was that I just had too many items to hang and not a lot was going to be folded in the shelves.

This ended up working much better not only for the space I had but as it turns out all of my foldables are in the same color palette so it looked like I designed it purposely. I used to have a dresser inside the space but the drawers were simply too packed was breaking down and it just didn’t work in the space. The drawers were always hitting the sliding door.

I haven’t bought the LED lights for the closet yet but I am definitely going to pull the trigger on them because I can never see what I have in my closet! And like it elevates the space!

After taking everything out to put the new furniture inside the closet I started noticing so many things that I’ve only ever worn once or twice that I am never going to wear ever again! So I decided that I’m going to go ahead sell them….at reasonable prices of course. Most of the items are medium range designers like Parker, McQ, Clover Canyon etc. I most likely won’t mark anything over $50 but stay tuned for the shop page on my site pretty soon!
