Around the corner...


 Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a wonderful Easter. I cannot believe it has been two weeks since I have done a blog post, but sometimes life happens. It has been a very busy time for me. Last week my son was on spring break and that time was devoted to having fun with him and we did so many fun activities including horseback riding and  our tradition of making resurrection rolls for Easter and since I was in a baking mood, my son challenged me to make cinnamelts better than the ones he loves to get from McDonalds. 

Excuse me? I think he forgot that mom always slays in the kitchen. I don't need to tell you who won that bet, and just to show you how good they were, their will be a blog post with the recipe later this week.

Now that spring break is over, I am back to life as usual, which includes some exciting projects:-) And I am just loving all the wonderful surprises life has been sending my way. I have a feeling that there is even more around the corner. I can't wait!

Today I am wearing a very casual look with a cobalt blue silk top, jeans and leopard pumps. You do know about my obsession with animal print, right? 

Spring weather just makes me want to be outdoors all the time. There is nothing like a drive up pacific coast highway on a beautiful spring day. What do you love the most about spring?

Herringbone (LV's LA)

Herringbone is my kind of restaurant, swanky, beautiful and delicious food. This new seafood  restaurant  in West Hollywood  gives new meaning to the term: "Surf and Turf." This space used to be occupied by Asia de Cuba, which was one of my favorite places to dine, but this gorgeous seafood and inspired comfort food restaurant has definitely made the space their own. On each of my visits here I have enjoyed the food and the service.



Herringbone has completely transformed the space into an opulent beach house setting with  aesthetically pleasing earth tone and white interiors with pops of vibrant blue and luxurious gold. The beautiful decor includes such unique touches as chandeliers with hanging fish ropes, fish bone artwork and sleek marble. I like to come during lunch or at dusk to enjoy the amazing outdoor patio that overlooks Los Angeles.


The outdoor patio is the best spot to enjoy the California sunshine. Cozy couches, tree arches, a luxurious bar and fire pits make the space even more gorgeous. Some of my favorite dishes are the Carne Asada Fries, Lobster roll and fish tacos. The setting during the day is quiet and relaxing. Come after the sun goes down and you will be among the cooler than thou dressed in black crowd:-) After dark this is definitely a Los Angeles scene, but if you can manage to snag a seat outdoors next to a firepit, you can relax and sip and smile with your favorite libation:-)

 The gorgeous bar area


Isn't this outdoor patio gorgeous?



These terra cotta pots are beautiful to look at. So  many beautiful design elements in this restaurant. Great for a relaxing lunch and perfect for date night


This spot has amazing decor inside and out
The fish tacos are excellent


My cousin enjoyed her fish and chips. And I can definitely say that they are pretty tasty. 


The carne asada fries are a must try when you come here. Delicious!

 Did I mention how insanely delicious the lobster roll is?


My Arnold Palmer was way too tart so our delightful server whipped up this Shirley Temple and it was perfect:-)


After debating on the rocky road dessert or a platter of the chefs creations of the day, we chose to try a plate of surprise goodies


We made the perfect choice, on this plate were macaroons, white chocolate cranberry cookies, chocolate chunk cookies, homemade oreos and chocolate salted caramel bites. Everything was delectable


Can you see how much we hated everything?


It is gorgeous during the day, but when the sun goes down...


This is definitely a splurge worthy spot, but prepare your wallet

Experience

Someone once told me that experience is what you get when you don't get what you want. I recently reflected on that statement and came across this quote. No relationship is ever a waste of time. There is always a lesson if you are willing to learn.

Knowing what you don't want brings you closer to what will bring you happiness and joy.
