Nobu Malibu

nobu malibu

Nobu Malibu: a Los Angeles hotspot that is known for its frequent visits from the Kardashians, delectable sushi and picturesque views.  Over Labor Day, I visited Los Angeles and on my wish list was to eat and drink at Nobu, which is just what I did.  The fish and rice melt in your mouth and the drinks are perfectly made (and cool you off on a hot day!).  However, Nobu Malibu's ace in the hole is its beachside location because it is an absolute dream.  If you're ever in the area -- I highly recommend getting a reservation for yourself. The perfect unagi and octopus nigiri and a spicy albacore tuna roll. Snapper nigiri and short rip tacos. Yellowtail topped with jalapeño sashimi overlooking the Pacific Ocean (on an unseasonably hot day in LA).…

Blind Taste Test with PopSugar Food and Snyder’s of Hanover

PopSugar Food

Ever heard of a "chickle?"  Or say "coconut ash ice cream?"  Well, I was caught by surprise too when I did a blind taste test with Snyder's of Hanover and PopSugar Food.  As an avid food blogger, and a fan of the latest foodie phenomenons, I was extremely entertained when I did a blind tasted test of some of the latest foods out there.  Take a look at the funny video below, which includes others influencers, as we get to blind taste all those crazy food truck foods and the new "wholey" cheese from Snyder's of Hanover! https://youtu.be/96XMHvt3W_0 Shooting this little video was so fun and a huge thanks to PopSugar Food and Snyder's of Hanover putting it all together.  Take a look at some of the BTS (behind the scenes) action...  

Places to Eat in NYC: Bagatelle

Looking for places to eat in NYC?  Bagatelle is a fabulous option with gourmet food and a chic location and atmosphere. Truffle pizza -- absolutely perfect appetizer for a few people! Delectable beef brisket. Tuna tartare on a crispy potato. Pan seared scallops. Bagatelle's ice cream Sunday is bigger than my face, as you can see (clearly I'm not excited at all). I recently enjoyed a lovely night and a delicious meal courtesy of Bagatelle in the meatpacking district. Bagatelle truly delivered in ever way from the food to the ambiance.  It's a spacious restaurant in NYC's trendy Meatpacking district, think where Samantha lived in Sex and the City and where Ramona Singer and Bethenny  Frankel opted to brunch last season on the Real Housewives of New York City.  Bagatelle is where you go…

The Girl in the Coffee Shop…Happy National Coffee Day!

National Coffee Day

Happy National Coffee Day! It seems we have a national day for just about everything now: burgers, mac 'n cheese, siblings, donuts (one of the better ones!), ice cream, cookies, and the list goes on and on.  I am convinced these "national days" were invented purely as Instagram holidays but I must say: National Coffee Day really does deserve its own day (my love for coffee can be found in this post).  I think most people will admit that coffee is an integral part of their morning.  Am I right? So in honor of National Coffee Day I have a list of some places offering specials! {Photos by Steph Jensen} Best National Coffee Day Deals Birch: For all you NYC people, Birch is offering free drip coffees from 7am to 10am.

Wanna Brunch with J. Lo?

Brunch Guide NYC

You may be thinking: what do brunch and J. Lo have in common?  Right.  Well, normally I wouldn't know, but it just so happens that I was out brunching myself last weekend (as I do) at Laconda Verde and spotted (with my quick celebrity eye: seriously I have a gift for spotting celebrities) Ryan Seacrest at a two top.  Initially, I was pretty excited just to see Ryan Seacrest and then as I looked more closely I noticed that he was sitting across from a top knot wearing brunette woman.  Now there is only one diva who slays a top-knot bun like no other: yes, it was indeed J. Lo.  She was dressed exactly as you would think: bodycon dress, hair slicked into a top knot bun and looking flawless.  I was giddy.  Ryan…
