Aqua Lady

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. Me and my son had a fun filled weekend full of activities and I have been truly enjoying summer. We had plans to hit the beach and the weather did not agree with that, so we had to improvise and do some other things instead. I have some great recipes to share, so stay tuned for those. You probably know from my last few posts, how busy I have been. I forgot to post these photos in my aqua dress. I wore this out recently and just love this color. I love the way it looks to wear varying shades of the same color.  Aqua is one of those colors that is soft and pastel, yet vibrant at the same time. Do you agree?

Dress: Go Jane, handbag: c/o Mimi Boutique, Necklace: c/o Mimi Boutique, Sandals: Specialty Boutique

I love this necklace from Mimi Boutique. The color is so perfect for summer and can be paired with so many other colors.

Isn't this bag gorgeous?

So how do you like this monochromatic look?

Have an amazing day!

Culina (LV's LA)

There are some places that just make you want to be outdoors . Culina is one of those places.  Located in the heart of Beverly Hills and a part of the gorgeous Four Seasons Hotel, is an enchanting Italian restaurant. Culina is gorgeous inside and out, but the tranquil patio beckons you to indulge in an Al fresco dining experience. The lush outdoor patio is a garden oasis with fresh trees,tropical anthuriums and the scent of fresh flowers. This is what dining in Southern California is all about. Blue skies, lush landscaping and delicious food.

So many choices
 The party got started with this tasty Pina Colada mocktail

I have enjoyed lunch here, but coming here early evening was a different experience. The candles cast a soft glow over the patio and the vibe is laid back and relaxing.

It is easy to get swept away by the scenery

Especially with beautiful touches like this bubble chandelier

absolutely lovely to look at, but the food, yes, the food, is worth taking note of.
 The menu offers a nice balance of Italian favorites and some modern twists on favorites. We started with the delicious Tricolore salad, which is a blend of wild arugula, treviso, frisee, grapes,  white balsamic vinaigrette and parmagiano reggiano

 Another salad we tried had Proscuitto, frisee, radicchio, canteloupe, pine nuts,gorgonzola and wild arugula brought together with a lemony dressing
The freshly baked  Foccacia is always perfect and absolutely addicting

Cheers to the good life!

These beautiful Anthuriums remind me of Maui

And the star of the night was the Lasagna Bolognese. This dish had the perfect blend of turkey, ricotta cheese, spinach and tomatoes

 Such a gorgeous space to relax and enjoy a nice dinner

Doesn't this look scrumptious?
And this cheesy goodness is what lies beneath the surface

 The fire pit and candle light on the tables make the ambiance inviting and romantic. Perfect for snuggling next to that special someone while a trail of stars watch from above 

The Chocolate Tortino dessert is a rich molten chocolate cake with salted caramel gelato.

This amazing looking dessert is the Afogato, which is vanilla bean gelato, expresso, cotton candy and pinoli cookies
The expresso is poured over the cotton candy and vanilla bean gelato. If you love coffee flavored desserts, this is perfect!

 Such great service here and a great indoor and outdoor space. This place is one of my best kept secrets...but not anymore:-)

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a great July 4th! I had a great 4th of July and my birthday was the best birthday ever! This year I was showered with love from so many different people. It is truly a great feeling to be celebrated. Since I got so many emails requesting a full post on the dress I wore to dinner at Acabar, here it is!

Most of you know how much I love animal print, so this was the perfect dress to wear to dinner with my friends:-)
 I love wearing double cuffs

I love the train on this dress

This is my dolled up for dinner look.

This bronze clutch was a DIY, me and my friend who is an amazing seamstress and great at making all kinds of amazing things put this clutch together a couple of years ago. I love how it turned out

This photo was taken in the gorgeous lounge at Acabar, if you want to read more about the restaurant and see some great photos of Acabar, read my restaurant review here

There is just something about a beautiful dress...
