I ventured out to San Juan Capistrano this past weekend for brunch (separate post on brunch to come). This missionary town is full of character and remnants of the old California. It’s quite a drive south but definitely worth a half-day trip. For all the shabby/rustic chic lovers out there, this place is picture perfect. … Continue reading

farm shop @ brentwood country mart

I had brunch with some of my favorite people at Farm Shop last weekend. It’s located in the cutest little plaza called Brentwood Country Mart. I’m totally drinking the shabby / rustic chic Kool-aid and love everything about this place. Can’t wait to come back and try some of the other food options! I scored … Continue reading

Happy Monday all! Quick outfit post from this past weekend. Enjoy! As you all can probably tell, I’m obsessed with black leather shorts and wear them with just about anything. I’m also loving the simple tee look. They make easy but oh so chic looks. Pair the outfit with a statement necklace and some cute … Continue reading

at the BAZAAR

The Bazaar at the SLS Hotel is one of my favorite restaurants in LA. I consider it one of the ‘must eat’ restaurants in LA. My current top three are: 1) The Bazaar, 2) Nobu in Malibu and 3) TBD (not the same of a restaurant, lol). Chateau Marmont is great for celebrity sightings but … Continue reading

TGIF all! Santa Monica is suffering a serious case of June Gloom just about now. I already miss the sunny blue Malibu skies from last weekend! As part of my good friend Amy’s visit to LA, I took her to Nobu in Malibu. I had dinner here a few months ago and was in food heaven. … Continue reading

Happy Tuesday all! Quick outfit post from this past weekend…enjoy! I used to be a big Gilt fan and would literally count down for their big sales. However, more often than not, I did not like my purchases and with Gilt’s less than optimal return policy (not to mention they charge for shipping!), I ended … Continue reading

TGIF everyone!!! Back to back post this week…another lazy/casual look from last weekend. Enjoy! Feeling rather patriotic for brunch…wearing maroon, white and blue! Picked up these Dior sunnies from LAX duty free from a few months ago. I was tempted to pick up a Valentino pair at the Taipei airport but stopped myself. Now I … Continue reading

Hi everyone! Apologies for the long hiatus (again). I literally suffered 2 weeks of jet lag after my work trip to China. Now that I’m finally back on a normal sleeping schedule and feeling more human, here’s another outfit post from last weekend. As I was still pretty jet lagged and feeling all things lazy, … Continue reading

“coffee break”

“coffee break”

I work right across the street from an outdoor shopping area by the beach. The close proximity to prime retail real estate often results in impromptu “coffee breaks” that leads to running into either JCREW, Club Monaco, or Zara for a quick retail fix. Last Wednesday, I walked out to “refill my Starbucks coffee” and … Continue reading

Cobalt blue is currently my favorite color. I’m actually on the search for the perfect pair of cobalt blue suede pumps. If anyone has any recommendations, please comment!! I got this lovely cobalt dress from theoutnet.com not too long ago. I fell in love with the vibrant color and form fitting material. I was hesitant … Continue reading
