Discovery of the Week: Urban Home

Hi again!

I’m back with another discovery this week!

I would like to share with you all my introduction to a new (at least new to me) store: Urban Home.

It’s a furniture and home goods store that I visited last week (when I was also visiting Paris Baguette, which I still have yet to try) at the Santa Anita Mall. My mom had mentioned it a few times but having no clue what it was, I never really understood what she was saying. That has all changed.

Let me tell you. This store is amazing!

They have really cute stuff (furniture, decor, etc.) and it’s all fairly reasonably priced.

It’s like IKEA but cheaper and higher quality. The only sad part is that I don’t have my own home (or the money) to furnish with all these lovely products they have for sale. That is actually probably a good thing now that I think about it because otherwise I would have spent all my money. I seriously considered buying that clock above even though I have no where to put it. That’s how awesome this store is.


Discovery of the Week: Paris Baguette

Hello again!

I know I missed posting last week but sometimes life gets in the way of the best laid plans. Still, I’m back this week with a new discovery.

I was at the Santa Anita Mall this weekend and while walking along, window shopping, what should I see? A new bakery that has “Paris” in the title. Now, any of you who know me, know that I love French food and adore Paris themed things. I just had to have a peak at what this store had to offer.

Paris Baguette is the name of the bakery (not really creative but at least it’s to the point). They have a wide array of pastries to choose from, including: cakes, cookies, bread, sandwiches, etc. They are a division of a larger Korea-based company which is interesting because there seems to be some Asian-influenced pastries in their line-up as well. They have green tea flavored shaved ice, as well as rice cakes, and mochi desserts. I’m mostly excited about the croissants and macaroons though.

I did not have the chance to actually try anything yet but I will definitely be making a stop here on my next trip to Santa Anita. I have very high hopes. Thanks for coming by!
