from the weekend: miami to la

03.16.14 weekendThis weekend we spent a day in Miami touring the Wynwood art district and cramming in some more beautiful beach time before bidding adieu to Florida to get back to our home state of California. Once back we eased back into normal life with a brunch at Gjelina and a hike around Palos Verdes.

Now back to work! Happy Monday. x

from the weekend: los angeles in two days

griffith observatory, los angeles // @sarahshermansamuelI got to play tourist in my own city this weekend with one of my best gal pals who was visiting from San Francisco. We caught up while buzzing around town to a lot of my favorite spots. Here’s the short list for our whirlwind weekend in LA.

We had an unforgettable dinner at Alma, a peek at the new Ace Hotel downtown, a manicure at the most beautiful nail salon in Beverly Hills, brunch at Gjelina & Salt Air, shopping on Abbot Kinney as well as in Silver Lake, another tasty meal at Sqirl, hiking and taking in the view at Griffith Observatory, tacos and drinks at Alibi room, and a long, and by then, delirious meal at Cafe Gratitude.

from the weekend: holiday recovery

01.05.13-weekendIt was hard saying goodbye to the midwest winter wonderland but I can say I am pretty pleased that we are missing out on the crazy low temps that are hitting there this week. (I mean -50 degree wind chill? no thank you). We spent the weekend slowly de-christmasing our house, brunching at a favorite spot, and hiking and snuggling with our much missed pups.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

from the weekend: empty house

08.25.13-weekendWe’ve moved in to the new place but since there is a lot of work we want to get done before bringing our furniture in, we’ve been living in more of a construction zone than home. Which hasn’t been all bad, an empty house has meant furniture shopping and lots of yummy meals out.

february 2013 in review

february 2013Oh February… short but sweet. I had a few nice long working lunches, great clients and great food makes me a happy girl (top row left at Gjelina and second row right at Eat.Drink.Americano). I also had a birthday and we drove, hiked, swam, and ate our way around New Zealand.

from the weekend: a few favorite spots

01.28.12 weekendRupe was away on a shoot all weekend so I had plenty of good quality girl time which meant frequenting a few of my favorite places. You know you are having fun when meeting for lunch leads to coffee and then to dessert & coffee and then of course you get hungry again so pizza and then why not drinks. A friend and I did that with a restaurant crawl from the cafe at Tom’s flagship store to Gjelina to Tasting Kitchen. That’s my kind of line-up for a Sunday afternoon.
