If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I just spent a week in Asia, specifically Beijing and Hong Kong. I’ve put together some highlight photos as well as my recommendations in case you make it to that part of the world. Enjoy
Top 5 Sights to See in Beijing
Great Wall-I suggest driving the extra half hour to the Mutianyu Section for no other reason than you take a chair lift up and toboaggan down (SO.MUCH. FUN.-see outtakes!)
Tiananmen Square-Not a whole lot to see, but a historical site, nonetheless. It was built to hold a million people and it feels it-so vast and wide. It was fun to see the Chinese Soldiers march and change guard.
Forbidden City-We got there late and it was freezing, but… read more
On days like today (record LA heat!), I feel luckier than ever to live in Los Angeles and spend most of my time in Venice. Abbot Kinney is the main hub of Venice and there are some true knock out stores-here are some that get my All-Star Vote!
I’m not much of a bike rider , yet if i’m going to do something , I like to do it in style, thus a Linus Bike. Mine should be arriving in a few weeks along with a great little wire basket for trips to the Farmer’s Market.
Kendall Conrad has been designing handbags for the past few years and she recently opened a store on AK. Her shapes and colors are classic. And they are reasonably priced. I love the Snakeskin Cosmetic… read more
Summer has come and gone. The long weekend was relaxing and rejuvenating. I ended up in a few different sections of LA all weekend from The Taste of Beverly Hills to the Lumberyard in Malibu to Venice (my home away from home) and Brentwood (my home) Here are some favorite stores that I visited.
A quick post today. Work has been nutty, I leave for vacation soon (see below), and these are the things I’m looking forward to.
A family vacation to Maui-leaving tomorrow. I’m ready for a little sun and relaxation.
Just what is missing from the Brentwood Country Mart-an upscale market/larder. Farmshop , Jeffrey Cerciello’s latest venture will fill the void. It should be great-he is the chef behind Bouchon and Ad Hoc.
Camel is dominating the Fall runways, and I’m looking forward to punctuate it all with shots of Hunter green.
I love this tote from J. Crew.
The Renzo Piano designed Resnick Pavilion at LACMA opens in… read more
This week has been busy-lots to do at work, busy with friends, and trying (really trying) to blog more often-next week already seems like it will be crazier! But I’ve managed to pull together some favorites, so I hope you enjoy.
Habitually Chic did a great post on style icon, Aerin Lauder after she was profiled in T Magazine. I adore her bar set up. I love the dark, masculine colors and her amazing selection of art-definitely one to add to the inspiration file!
If you follow me on Twitter, you know I recently purchased this dress from Maje a cool small French label with great prices. -available at Net-A-Porter. I find it to be the best multi-tasker day to night dress. It… read more
