Snow at The Grove in Los Angeles

snow at the grove

Have you seen the snow at The Grove?! Since moving to Los Angeles from NYC, there are some obvious differences between the cities: the main difference being the weather.  My current Instagram feed is filled with adorable pictures of people playing in the snow filled streets of NYC.  (They're throwing snowballs and buying Christmas trees with a fresh snowfall on them.)  During the holidays, I reminisce about all the fun wintry and holiday activities in NYC: like visiting 30 Rock, seeing The Rockettes or grabbing hot chocolate and shopping in Soho.  This is the time of year that I miss the cold weather and truly miss living in NYC. Los Angeles certainly has winter activities to partake in but there isn't snow -- real snow that is but there is fake snow!  The snow…

Biscuits and Gravy Recipe

biscuits and gravy recipe

As I mentioned in "Holiday Gift Ideas" post last week -- I had a little holiday gathering last Sunday and made a delicious holiday meal of biscuits and gravy.  This dish happens to be a memorable childhood recipe I used to make with a friend of mine and it has always stuck with me (probably because it's super easy to make and when it comes to cooking I like fast and tasty!).    Since it's such a cozy and simple meal to have over the holidays I thought I'd share the delicious biscuits and gravy recipe with you as you may want to have this as part of your holiday festivities. Biscuits and Gravy Recipe Ingredients: Biscuits I use the premade Pillsbury Doughboy flaky ones.  Because as mentioned, I like to keep things fast and…

Holiday Gift Ideas

holiday gift ideas

How is everyone spending these holidays weeks? Still in need of some holiday gift ideas (and if you're still looking for something to wear this holiday season check out this post!)? Well before we dive into all the great presents and gifts there are out there I’m recapping my Sunday! Sunday was my boyfriend’s birthday and I surprised him by getting our Christmas tree (his tradition is to get it on his bday every year) and having a little tree decorating breakfast with his brother and seven year old nephew, which was a really fun way to spend the morning. Sidebar: let me just say: if you go to a Christmas tree lot and there is a man standing there grabbing his private areas several times and making untoward gestures while you’re trying to…

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).…

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...
