Secret Rosé Garden

I recently visited The Secret Rosé Garden, a pop-up cafe at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. I‘m obsessed with rosé and roses so as you can imagine I was ecstatic when I came across this limited-time event on Instagram and I knew I had to visit right away! This elegant installation was created to celebrate the hotels 90th anniversary, and by celebrate I mean they’ve recreated the famous Garden Lounge for our generation to enjoy. If you didn’t know, the Garden Lounge was a fixture of the hotel during the 1960s and 1970s. The Secret Rosé Garden is situated on the rooftop and features stunning viewsRead More →

Favorite TV Shows of All-Time

Even though we live in Los Angeles where the weather is nice most of the year, during the fall we sometimes just want to stay in, prepare a cup of hot cocoa and do some binge watching. We each chose our five favorite TV shows of all-time and weirdly enough, none of us picked the same one. So when you’re searching for something to watch this season, you have 15 options to choose from! I didn’t watch Oz while it was on TV; years later I caught up with it on HBO GO. I’m a huge fan of The Wire, so when I found outRead More →

Exotic Dishes In and Around DTLA

One of my favorite parts about living in Southern California is the abundance of incredible food. From fine dining to taco stands, we have it all. With so many hungry foodies in this city, there is a constant demand for new food concepts, so there’s never a shortage of fresh restaurants to try. When a cluster of hot restaurants open up, my favorite thing to do is what I call a dinner hop; think a food version of bar hopping. Because Los Angeles is so vast, I like to choose one neighborhood and dine at two to three restaurants in the same night, enjoying aRead More →

fall fashion trends

Nothing thrills me more than a change in season because it means going shopping for new clothing and accessories and changing up my wardrobe based on the upcoming trends. As we slowly approach our last days of summer, I have begun compiling a list of fashion pieces I must have this season. This year some fall fashion trends I’m looking forward to purchasing are an oversized puffer jacket, a pair of colorful faux fur heels, a square neckline dress, a pair of snakeskin pants, and some trendy metallic over-the-knee boots. I also can’t wait to add more leopard prints, statement pieces in the color mustard,Read More →

grilled shrimp carbonara

When summer nears its end and the sweltering days give way to cool and breezy evenings, I like to plan meals that I can enjoy outdoors. Usually that means setting my outdoor dining table and firing up my grill to barbecue a light meal of meats and veggies, but lately I’ve been craving carbs. I decided to satisfy my craving with a spin on one of my favorite pasta dishes, Grilled Shrimp Carbonara. Grilled Shrimp Carbonara is a classic pasta dish from Rome consisting of just a few simple ingredients: egg, Pecorino Romano cheese, cured pork, and pasta. I chose to get creative with myRead More →

low-calorie vegetarian and vegan recipes

I was never good at cooking, I would attempt to make a dish from scratch, take one bite and then toss it in the trash. When I first moved to California and I lived alone I became the queen of takeout; after a long day it was much easier to order from one of my favorite restaurants on Postmates or UberEats than to destroy my kitchen cooking something that would end up down the drain. When my boyfriend and I moved in together, I wanted to give cooking another try. I wanted to be able to prepare healthy food options for us to enjoy together.Read More →

los angeles coffee shops

Working from home can be convenient, but have you ever tried working from a coffee shop? I’ve always been the most productive working outside of my home. It may seem like a distraction, but once you’re in the setting, you learn to block out distractions and become efficient versus staying at home and choosing to have Netflix playing in the background. The great thing about coffee shops is that they have comfortable furniture, calming music, opportunities for networking with other creatives, and unlimited amounts of caffeine! I decided to go on a neighbor tour where I tried their food, their Wifi, and of course theirRead More →

Evening Summer Soiree

I recently threw a party to celebrate my 25th birthday. Being a milestone, I wanted to host an extra special event, so I planned an evening summer soirée with my closest friends and family. I curated everything from the food and beverages, to the decor and the floral arrangements, with a few DIY projects in between. It was a magnificent event that took a lot of preparation but was so worth the effort. You will see that throwing a successful party can be made easier with the appropriate planning and a bit of creativity! Planning for the Event I knew it would be sunny andRead More →
