Things I Love Thursday

This week I have been majorly obsessed with a love affair that blossomed when we were stationed in Hawaii.

Açaí Bowls.

Yep. I am pretty much obsessed.

I had a ritual back in Hawaii. And it involved a lot of time spent at the Coffee Gallery in HaleIwa writing papers and chowing down on either their Vegetarian Pineapple Chili or their yummy Açaí Bowls! 

If you haven’t had one, it is pretty much a delicious berry concoction filed with fruit, granola, nuts, you name it!

When we moved to Virginia I was bummed.

Not just because we left Hawaii but because we left all of the unique flavors Hawaii had to offer.

My homemade açaí bowl is not nearly as delicious as the ones from my new favorite spots!

I was so happy when I stumbled on an awesome place in Hilltop that offered my yummy berry love!

Fruitive is a health conscious restaurant that features some of the best fucking juices you will ever taste.

And they are a certified green restaurant!

Yesterday I was in need of my bowl fix so I made sure to check out a new spot along with some of my favorite ladies;  Miss Y, my client turned bestie and Carly, one of the best makeup artists Hampton Roads has to offer!

We made it over to the Oceanfront and hit up Zeke’s Beans & Bowls. And let me tell you, it was heaven in my mouth!

Not only do they have açaí bowls. They also have Poke!

Let me tell you, I was in nostalgia land!

Their poke and açaí bowls were just like I remembered from my time in Hawaii!

I am a huge supporter of local businesses and I would love it if you would show your support as well!!!

Please stop by these two locally owned restaurants for some yummy eats and awesome atmosphere.

There’s this bizarre notion that I’ve seen fairly often among my clients and it’s this: “LeZandra takes great photos, but I don’t think it will work for ME.” Boudoir is for everyone. Every type, every body, every style, every personality. A huge part of what I do is getting to know YOU and creating your […]

Newport News Virginia Boudoir

When I say that almost every single client is worried that this process intimidates EVERY. SINGLE. CLIENT. I’m not kidding. The hardest part of being a boudoir photographer is seeing how prevalent low self-esteem is – regardless of size. The best part of being a boudoir photographer is being able to squash those insecurities and […]

Norfolk Virginia Boudoir Photography Studio

Societal pressures to meet a certain “ideal” are bad enough, but when you add criticism from your partner? It takes on a whole other level of intensity. Miss M spent far too much time hearing she wasn’t good enough and finally made the decision to walk away. As a result of all that mental fuckery, […]
