Everything You Think You Know About Chick(pea)s Is Wrong.

These cookies are so good, they might cause you to question everything you know about baking, flour, Veganism, and possibly life itself. Even YOU wouldn’t be able to tell these cookies are mostly comprised of garbanzo beans. They would even

In Praise of Sweatpants. With apologies to Cindy Crawford.

I like to spend most of my time at home dressed like a new mom. AKA someone who doesn’t have time to look all that presentable (sorry, Husband). I am not a new mom, or a mom at all (that

Korean Spas: They’re Not Messing Around

I have always wanted to check out a Korean spa, but was hesitant because I feared they wouldn’t be user-friendly, as I hate being bad at things. Turns out my fears were totally justified.  But alas, I was ultimately lured

Turkish Towels For The Win

I have never uttered or written the phrase “For the win” until now: I was saving it for something special. And that something special has presented itself in the form of Traditional Turkish Towels. Turkish Towels are also known as

Rockstar Feta, Sundried Tomato & Rosemary Spread

I don’t use the word “Rockstar” lightly, people. I should be charging thousands of dollars for this recipe but, no, it’s yours for free. It’s so good that when I dropped and shattered a freshly made jar all over my

Favorite ETSY Finds, Part 1

I so enjoy Etsy. You never know what you might find inside this Cyber Den of Uniquity. Like these 2 barstools I purchased last year and re-upholstered in this gorgeous slate grey leather. Wait a minute? (Shameless Bragging Alert) Are those

Look what’s back!

When the folks at Shu Uemura stopped carrying their amazing eyelash curlers in the U.S., I was sad. Very sad. But look what is back with a vengeance….the best eyelash curler ever. And I am not kidding. I curled my

Male model for hire. Hourly is negotiable, form of payment preferred: people food of any kind.
Restaurant design done right... right??? 💯 & 👌 & 😍
I fear that Pico is the only being who truly ‘gets’ my obsession with the Madagascar Elephant Tree.
Hey, Malibu, we should visit more often.
Totally diggin’ (see what I did there?) our new driveway cactus display. Supplies from my beloved @pottedstore & the dtla flower mart. Props to @robmaigret for subjecting himself to many cactus needles. 😬
Ojai-ing with these supastarz.
Handsome Jeff Of Ojai 😻
This is Ojai. #ojai #ojailove #ojaicalifornia #ojaivibes
I might be Game-Of-Thrones-Level obsessed with The Boys. 🔥⭐️👌💯
My airplant is (probably) bigger than your airplant.
I have always been a huge fan of Twiggy. She’s quintessentially mod AF. I’m sure she’d be honored to discover she featured prominently in our guest bathroom. 😬 #twiggy
Syd insisted on being the first to get her hair all over our newest reading nook. I may have taken this vintage chair off our street & had @arboledaandco reupholster it in a soft & gorgeous @sunbrella chenille outdoor fabric. I also may have found this uniquely fab (half) side table at @hotelsurplus outlet - and it may have been originally from the Jeremy Hotel in Weho. The pouf might also be my first @ikea purchase in about 10 years, and only because it came preassembled. Come visit & bring a book! And perhaps a lint roller.
Took a nap outside and woke up to Cloud Man here. Not creepy at all. 😳😳😳
May I be the first to wish you Happy Holidays? 🙄
Sydney will NOT be outdone by her big brother. Plus, she has better legs.
A lot of (rude) people ask if Pico has had a bunch of cosmetic surgery to be this unbelievably handsome. Nope. He’s just #blessed.
Date night at the outstanding Otium. Besides food that is pretty much perfection, they currently have drinks such as The Marvelous Mrs Basil (my fave) and The Little Sebastian - named after, of course, Little Sebastian from Parks & Rec. 👌& 😂 & 💯 #themarvelousmrsmaisel #marvelousmrsmaisel #lilsebastian #treatyoself #parksandrec #LAfoodporn #bestofLA
The shopping in Copenhagen is epic. And everyone wears sneakers all the time & with everything. They’re my spirit animals. 😍
