Cucina Enoteca | Local Adventures

For this week’s local adventure linkup, we went out to lunch at Cucina Enoteca, a great restaurant at the Irvine Spectrum. It was my first time here and I really enjoyed the food; I am definitely planning on returning again soon. We went for lunch to share a cheese plate and the fig/Gorgonzola/pecan pizza which was just absolutely delicious. Our waitress was really sweet and...

The OC Mix & Surfas | Local Adventures

My mother, much like me, enjoys going to new restaurants and places and further discovering some of the exciting things our local area has to offer. A few weeks ago, she discovered Surfas, a restaurant supply store which serves wine and cheese plates as well as cooking classes. Our trip up to Costa Mesa was a bit last minute, we had other plans but had...

Fireworks in Dana Point Harbor

This year I didn’t want to miss either the 4th of July nor Bastille Day, so I decided to get a jump on our countries’ celebrations. Two years ago, my husband and I had the opportunity to go see fireworks from a boat in Dana Point Harbor and it was the best fireworks experience I have ever had. We watched the sunset from the ocean,...

Weekly Wishes July Goals

This month was incredibly busy, so even though it felt like June snuck by, I have a pretty good feeling I know where the time went. I managed to get quite a bit done this month, but I still feel like I’m just barely keeping my head above the water and I’d like to start to see that change this next month. My July Goals...

Lovely Letters June Linkup

This month I participated in my first ever snail mail linkup hosted by the lovely Esther of Esther & Jacob. The theme for this month’s linkup was “Summer Reading”  which was a challenge because for many, reading can be very particular. But I suppose that might be because I took it quite literally and thought “books” rather than “anything related to reading.” After having received...

One Year, Déjà ? | Eurolinguiste Celebrates 1 Year

Today I’m celebrating one year of Eurolinguiste.com as blog! I first began using Eurolinguiste as a moniker while I was studying for my degree at Queen’s University Belfast because I had decided that my previous username was a bit outdated and I wanted something that fit who I was at that time. It’s been three years (June 12, 2011) since I’ve moved to Southern California...

A Day of My Life in Belfast Ireland

This post is part of Esther and Jacob’s Local Adventurer Link Up. I know it’s bad form, but I wanted to start with a disclaimer – the following post would have been a local adventure for me a few years back, but I’ve since moved from Ireland to California so it is no longer technically a “Local Adventure” even though it once was. I’m still...

A Proud Moment

I earned my Master’s Degree from Queen’s University in Belfast Ireland where I studied music and ethnomusicology. I look back on my time there fondly although I must admit that it was a struggle living alone in another country away from my friends and family (although I made a lot of great friends while I was there). In fact, I often awake after dreaming of...
