fritzi’s downtown brunch magic

November 30, 2016

It’s no secret that I love a good brunch. Eggs and bacon and all the things that accompany a good breakkie tend to be my love language. One of my downtown favorites for lunch is a darling little spot called Fritzi, headed up by Chef Neal Fraser. Boasting the best rotisserie chicken and the most incredible condiments around, this spot has become a go-to for me over the past few months. So when I heard they started doing weekend brunch- I got giddy. And boy, it did not disappoint.

cheese styling workshop with rolling greens

November 3, 2016

Give me all of the cheese and wine and I’m a happy girl. Evenings spent lingering over a beautiful cheese board with wine glass in hand, surrounded by good conversation, is a dream night. Throwing together a cheese board with wine pairings will wow your guests and isn’t as difficult as you think. All you need are some tips and tricks, and that’s just what I’m planning on teaching you at next week’s cheese board styling and wine pairing workshop at Rolling Greens Nursery.

Places Series Whiskey Wednesday

women & whiskies at vivane with how you glow

October 27, 2016

This year, I’ve had so much fun hosting a handful of Women & Whiskies events throughout LA. One of my most cherished things in life is bringing the people I love together in one room to celebrate, to connect, and just to be together. The joy of Women & Whiskies is that they are intent on bringing amazing women together, celebrating the power of women, and empowering women to drink something that is historically considered a man’s drink. My darling friends, Jessie and Tara, from How You Glow, partnered with me to create an epic night of cocktails, conversation, and connection on the beautiful patio at Viviane. We gathered some of our favorite LA women and created an evening to remember.

the darling retreat

September 30, 2016

I love retreats- they’re a time to get away from your normal pace of life, recalibrate in a new environment, and take on a different world for just a bit. Darling Magazine has hosted a few creative retreats, and I’ve loved being able to help curate the experience by cooking for the women who attend. It’s amazing how much food has the power to effect the experience of a weekend away. When you’re eating well, nourishing your body with beautiful things, and giving it the nutrients it needs, everything else seems to be so much more in alignment. The last weekend retreat Darling hosted was in Ojai, California, and was centered around photography. It was absolutely restful, stunning, and so much more.

women & whiskies at ocean prime

September 9, 2016

Oysters and whiskey? That is my love language. A few weeks back, I hosted a Women & Whiskies event at Ocean Prime, complete with oysters, tartare tacos, deviled eggs, and of course, cocktails. There is nothing I love more than bringing amazing women together to connect. Women & Whiskies does just that, and gathers women over what is historically seen as a “man’s drink.” This year, I have gotten to partner with them to curate some fantastic whiskey events around LA. When Ocean Prime offered to host a group of us and spoil us with their delicious bites, I knew it was the perfect combo.

A while ago, I hosted a floral styling and cocktail mixing workshop at Rolling Greens, one of my all-time favorite nurseries in Los Angeles. It was such a beautiful Sunday afternoon of people gathering to spend intentional time with one another while creating the dreamiest spring arrangements (and crafting some delicious cocktails of course).

viviane pool parties and my favorite french toast

May 10, 2016

You guys. I could not be more excited about the onset of summer. It means warmer and longer days, lounging by the pool, BBQ backyard nights with friends, and endless sunsets with purple skies. I love summer. One of my newly found and favorite spots in LA is gearing up for summer well. Viviane, located inside of the Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills, and it’s the ideal spot for this summer’s Sundays. With an entire day dedicated to poolside brunching, champagne cocktails, and literally the best french toast I’ve ever eaten, Viviane is the perfect spot to spend your Sunday in LA.
