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
Shannon from Life. Style has amazing taste-here are her picks for her 8 days of Hanukkah at every price point.
Hanukkah has arrived earlier than usual this year and that means gifts come early too! Here are eight items from my Hanukkah wish list; four luxe gifts and four items under $100. I would love any of these items to wear at holiday soirees throughout December. Happy holidays and I am looking forward to breaking latkes with Michal at her Hanukkah party this weekend!

I’ve started doing my research for my Holiday trip to Hong Kong and Beijing. I came across a store in Hong Kong’s NOHO district by the name of Earth-a collection of amazing pottery and ceramics-much done by ceramicist Solmuk Pantiboon. How beautiful is this bowl-the texture, color, and delicacy blow me away. Stay tuned as I uncover more fabulous finds.
These past few days, I’ve been needing to remind myself to stay cool and calm (even though I want to do the exact opposite AND YELL AT SOME PEOPLE!!!!!) Here are some favorite finds that are helping me out…and I must remind myself that deep breaths and less attitude will serve me well.
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
