From to-do lists, to doodles, or jotting down ideas, I’m not sure a creative person can have too many notebooks.
Notebook #1 is a leather-bound notebook with lots of inserts and customization (seriously debating this one). #2 is extra fat and opens 360 degrees. #3 is a Moleskine + Evernote collaboration. Notebook #4 is also from Moleskine and designed for watercolour. #5 is a block style layout similar to a magazine spread, and lastly #6 is a beautiful pressed cotton-covered notebook.

It’s been a few weeks since my trip out west, and I’m still day dreaming about sunny beach days and amazing meals. The trip consisted of a week in Vegas for work followed by two days in San Diego and four days in LA. I was lucky enough to have great friends in both places to put me up and show me around town.
The Vegas leg of the trip was spent mostly inside a convention center , and the Bellagio was by far the highlight.
That Thursday morning I took a 7am flight out-of-town and headed to San Diego. We started with brunch at Snooze, followed by a morning hike at Torrey Pines with beautiful views ,
had amazing tacos at Oscars, and did a little sightseeing around San Diego.
Friday was spent on a cliff side beach with pups running around having the time of their lives ( and me starting to miss my fur ball).The ocean there had a much stronger pull than what I’m used to on the east coast, and I was also nerding out on the seaweed.
Saturday morning we made the short drive to LA and started the day off with drinks and ping-pong at The Standard. That night we went to The Line Hotel to browse the Poketo store, have drinks at The Commissary and dinner at Roy Choi’s POT. Three spots I would definitely recommend hitting up if you are in LA.
Sunday we spent the day at Venice Beach and enjoyed a beautiful lunch at Gjelina . Their pizza’s were unique and ridiculously good. They now haunt me and make me sad when I realize just how far away they are from my belly…
Monday we did some shopping in Silverlake followed by a lunch (that I can’t stop thinking about) at Sqirl.
That pretty pink blob is brioche topped with ricotta and housemade jam. get outta here.
Dinner at Bestia with a group of friends
Eggslut at Grand Central Market followed by a trip to LACMA… and more shopping.
Last but not least, my little LA snuggle buddy – Ozzy
I hit up so many good spots, and still have more places I wanted to go. Here is the run down of where we went to help plan your next pig-out/shopping spree in LA.

August and September were packed with trade shows and traveling so it’s been a while since I’ve updated the blog. I did manage to snap a few photos for a little home tour and interview with Josephine from the blog Courage & Dash. You can read my rambling and see more photos of our place over on her blog!
I have home improvements on the brain and I want to update a few lighting fixtures around the house. These solid brass lights from Cedar & Moss are at the top of the list. Our bedroom has been pretty neglected, but recently we’ve made progress by painting, adding new furniture and hanging a few things on the wall. I’m thinking a Cedar & Moss light for above the bedside table or dresser needs to happen. Too many lovely lights to choose from.
Lately we’ve had beautiful sunny breezy days, and the leaves on the trees are casting great shadows. I snapped a few photos and a video on my afternoon walk (computer eye strain break), and I’m hoping to reference them for some new paintings.
