got all done up to sit in the car while my s/o hit the market. •
this virus has really stirred up my life, as it has for every one else. my partner is especially cautious to keep me safe & healthy, and insists on doing any errands we need. now, i am NOT the kind of person who likes to be waited on. i actually like running my errands. it’s how i engage with my community and ensures i uphold my low waste values, along with a conscious mind of what ingredients are included in the products i use. •
i am very grateful to be so deeply loved and for all of the extensive methods my loved ones have been taking to keep me safe. being at high risk with a respiratory disease has been super scary. it made the first week and a half of quarantine especially difficult, but i’m holding up much better... and trying my best at maintaining my patience. •

There is so much happening in the world right now, and I have so much appreciation and gratitude for the little piece of the Earth I get to call home and the view that I get to enjoy and cherish each day. I am so blessed to be safe and well at this moment, and although I live alone, I feel so surrounded by love in our community as we get through this together in such innovative ways. #lovelongbeach #naplesstrong #saferathome #nofilterneeded
It's brunch time Long Beach!
One wild deal I stumbled upon is the perfect cure for those quarantine blues (especially after hearing they closed the parks and beaches).
Padre is giving customers who spend $40 on pick-up/delivery a carafe of OJ and a bottle of bubbly! 🍾🍊
This offer is currently available Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-3pm and for those are 21+. Let's toast to the weekend Long Beach. 🥂
today was the first day, in almost two weeks, that i felt good, and happy, and extra dancey. the quarantine had been tedious, but it has given me time to sort out what my priorities truly are.
swapping to a low waste lifestyle has given me so much drive to actively reduce my carbon footprint. i always considered myself an environmentalist, but i wasn't doing my part. and as i make all the little changes, hurdling the ideas of what convenience and value mean, it's fired up a passion in me to share my journey.
so here i am, an asthmatic, anxious, twenty-five year old mess, amid #Covid19, deciding this is one of the things i can do to help myself and others. you can call me Char. you'll see a lot into my ridiculous, clumsy life. thanks for being here. hope you enjoy. 💖♻️🌻

Stopped by La Chancla tonight to pick up my phone order and must I say, WOW. 🌮⠀
Their $19.99 special was just too good to pass up and the $5 additional charge for carne asada was worth it by all means. The meal comes with your choice of one meat (or you can split into two),handmade tortillas, beans, rice, and salsa. I will say my favorite part of the meal was the half order of chicken tinga. Authentic and flavorful! I can't wait to dine at their cute spot once everything is back to normal. ⠀
This Mexican food is worth keeping in Long Beach so definitely phone in your order the next time you're craving tacos.⠀
America's restaurants are in crisis.
Today, March 24th, I'll be participating in #TheGreatAmericanTakeout to support the restaurant industry by ordering takeout or delivery from one of the many amazing dining spots in Long Beach. What's your favorite restaurant or spot to pick up a coffee in Long Beach Today is the day to order your favorite thing to show your love and support. ❤️
Let's help spread the word to everyone we know!
As long as there's still pasta in the world, all is right. 🍝 🙌🏽 If you're still figuring out what to have for dinner tonight, how about getting your hands on this bowl of fresh bolognese pasta from Michael's Downtown.
You can also take advantage of their current daily special: Buy any pizza and get a Margherita pizza for 1/2 the price! 🍕
Their full menu is available every day from 11:30am - 8pm for takeout and delivery. Happy eating Long Long Beach!
What is going around the world and our community is truly heartbreaking to see.
One thing I do know is that the Long Beach community is strong and we will get through this TOGETHER. What so many businesses and individuals are experiencing is life changing. I'm so happy to see people going out supporting them by ordering their food and goods during this global pandemic (rather than chain restaurants and grocery stores).
What I want to do with my account during this time is repost content from local restaurants that are open for delivery, takeout, or have converted into a local market. Long Beach you are my home and I know we're going to get through this. ❤️ #longbeachstrong #shoplongbeach
Despite everything that is happening, the sun is still shining today, and the ice plants are blooming right outside my place on the water. I'm blessed I can stay put and still be in such a beautiful place. Let's drive our actions out of love and compassion for one another instead of fear. #lovelongbeach #naplesisland #saferathome
