City Romance

It should come as no surprise that the Griffith Observatory has been voted one of the ten most romantic places in Los Angeles. There’s something so classically romantic about ending a date up on the southern slope of Mount Hollywood. Perhaps its the breathtaking views both day and night, or that it brings to mind Rebel Without A Cause starring…

A Few of My {Not So} Guilty Pleasures

  guilty pleasure (noun): something pleasurable that induces a usually minor feeling of guilt; something that you shouldn’t like, but like anyway. I’ve never understood why we should be “guilty” about our pleasures. How did those two words even get linked together in the first place? I don’t know about you, but I’ll never apologize for listening…

Who’s Getting My Vote

The presidential debate is especially divided this election year. I’ve managed to stay quiet on social media about who I’m voting for, but I thought with tonight’s debate I’d finally share who’s getting my vote… Just kidding, although I think wine is one thing we can all agree on! Jokes aside, I do encourage everyone to vote…

Horror Movies + Wine

I’m always down to watch a horror movie, Halloween season or not. I seriously love getting scared! I was that kid at sleepovers who made everyone play hide-and-seek in the dark and always brought my dad on overnight school field trips because I knew he’d have the best scary stories to tell. I’ve watched a lot of…

Grape harvest is well underway at Cox Vineyards and in order to stay on schedule, picking has occurred every day this week. Mid-week, I checked in with my realtor-sister Whitney (you can find her real estate website here), who helps my dad and his team with harvest each year, to get the Cox Vineyards updates, as…

Kicking off Fall in Peep-Toes

In the past two weeks, it’s drizzled twice in L.A. While this excites the Northern California-raised me, the rain felt sticky and humid like a tropical vacation. I’m slowly implementing fall attire into my wardrobe in the hopes that the nights will get significantly chillier; however, it may be a while before the L.A. weather catches on.…

My L.A. Food Guide

In the almost five years that I’ve lived in L.A., I’ve eaten at some pretty amazing places – many of which also have great ambience and stellar wine lists. They’re not all in the heart of L.A., but spread out across the greater Los Angeles area. Check out some of my current favorites (not ranked in…

Flea Market Finds

On the second Sunday of every month, the Pasadena Rose Bowl transforms into one of the largest, most eclectic flea markets around. I don’t ever really go in search of a particular piece, but sometimes I walk away with a few unexpected treasures. If anything, I love getting decor inspiration for my apartment! Here are some…

How I’m Faking Fall in L.A.

It shouldn’t be too surprising when I say that the seasons are pretty non-existent in Los Angeles. Sure, the wind picks up and we get a few rainy days as Fall approaches, but it tends to stay a pretty mild temperature year-round. Because the seasonal changes are less apparent here than in my Northern California…

The Underrated NoHo Bar Crawl

My neighborhood is one of the most underrated, hidden charms of L.A. If you’re familiar with L.A. culture, you probably know at least one or two anti-Valley snobs who swear they’d never go north of Mulholland. If you live in L.A., perhaps you’re even one of those people! I’m here to make the case for the…
