Blog Break (Be Back soon)

Hey Loves! There comes a time when other things take priority over social media. I am feeling the need to take a blog vacation and do a much needed digital detox. I will be back to posting soon, but for the moment, I need to shift my focus in a a major way.  Talk to you soon:-)

Painting the town Red

Hey Loves! It's  been quite a week. The passing of  our musical icon Prince came as  quite a shock to me.  I have always been a life long fan and had quite the collection of  Prince music. I have been enjoying my own private concert in the car on my daily commute and reminiscing about how much fun I had at those Prince concerts.

If you have ever seen Prince perform live in concert, you know what a great performer he was. I had some of his Miles Davis collaborations way before anyone even knew they recorded together and thanks to entertainment industry connections, I was enjoying these back when I was an undergrad in college and it looks like now a lot of those hidden gems are being released online.

On another note, Mothers day is right around the corner and I am looking forward to mothers day because it is always nice to be celebrated and I always look forward to spending it with my son and my mom. I have an awesome surprise for her this year.

I love this time of year with the great weather and sunshine, but it has been a little windy lately, which gave me a great excuse to wear this super cute red trench coat that a close friend of mine gave me. I wore it out and had a great time painting the town red:-)

Red Trench: London Fog, White T-Shirt: H&M, Jeans: Old Navy
 Leopard Pumps: BCBG Paris, Clutch: Target

Sometimes you can find great stuff at Target. I have had this cute little clutch for quite some time, but it found its way into my basket when I was shopping for household supplies. Do you ever go to Target for household stuff and come out with a fashion item? LOL

Red is such a vibrant and stunning color, it is like cayenne pepper to an outfit
 I seriously have a thing for trench coats and dusters and have quite the collection and am thrilled to now have this beautiful red coat

Taking a moment to relax is crucial when you are always busy

 I always enjoy those moments I can kick my feet up

 There is something sassy about red

Have an amazing day!

Poppy + Rose (LV's LA)

In Los Angeles we have elevated brunch to an art form. There is no shortage of great places to enjoy brunch in the City of Angels. Poppy+Rose is hidden in the flower district in downtown Los Angeles and can best be described as Southern comfort food with a California vibe. This is a cute cozy spot to fuel up before you go shopping downtown and has lots of great breakfast and lunch options.

Between the light fluffy pancakes, flaky buttery biscuits and breakfast scrambles, it is hard to make a choice, but you can put your money on the chicken and waffles. In their interpretation of this southern dish, crispy buttermilk fried chicken is served on top of a brown butter Belgian waffle with a dollop of whipped honey butter and maple syrup served on the side.
 
 The atmosphere is bright cheery and pleasant
 
Perfect spot to load up on a delicious flaky biscuit


Sometimes its ok to enjoy a few biscuits:-)
 
 If you are dining alone, simply order and sit at the counter
 
 There are plenty of healthy options such as the lox bagel sandwich with arugula onion and tomato
 
There are also plenty of fresh juices to enjoy
 
The market salad with mixed greens, seasonal fruit, pecans, Parmesan and Persian cucumbers is delicious and healthy if you want something lighter than some of the more indulgent offerings they offer
 
 
 
The fresh flowers on each table is a great touch

If you are not counting calories, definitely try the chicken and waffles at Poppy+Rose

Full and happy:-)

Delicious leftovers to enjoy later
The restaurant is open 6:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Saturday and 8:00 am to 3:00 pm on Sunday. Allow plenty of time because reservations are not taken and service can be slow at times
