Attending the SEO seminar yesterday night just opened up the gates to my curiosity...so much more to learn! Continue reading

Year ago, when Kitchen 24 first opened on Cahuenga Blvd, many a stomping ground for late-night revelers, I vowed to go just to be able to get breakfast food w/ a Bellini or Bloody Mary after hours (It's open 24 hours). Then, of course, life threw its diversions at me... Continue reading

Whew, glad we all weathered (no pun intended) yesterday's rain! Rainy days make me want to replay "Quelqu'un m'a dit" by Carla Bruni. On another note, now that the SAG awards & Golden Globes are over...come to Salon Republic for your pre-Valentine's day or pre-Oscars primping! Naja Rickette, celebrity manicurist... Continue reading

intrigued by this article. A pageant mom gives her 8 year old daughter Botox to "help" her: http://www.stylelist.com/2011/05/16/britney-campbell-8-year-old-botox-video/?icid=main%7Chp-desktop%7Cdl1%7Csec1_lnk3%7C213366#commentformtoggle Continue reading

Chaya in Venice is my constant love. Before my first visit, I was skeptical of the concept of French-Japanese fusion cuisine. But the experience was transcendental. I became a devoted convert. The seafood was not only fresh, but the chefs knew exactly what do with it. I have been to... Continue reading

As adults, we shoulder grievances everyday, often without being to able to vent or complain to anyone. Who do we hold responsible for traffic, that nasty, lying parking attendant, construction on streets that make us late to work, re-occuring illness, being cut off by another car, an ungrateful so-called friend,...

I took a sushi workshop at Nobu in West Hollywood last Saturday afternoon from 1-4pm. A recent avid convert of sushi (it's an acquired taste), I eagerly anticipated that fated afternoon. I've been to both the Malibu & West Hollywood locations. Before I begin, however, I'd like to share something... Continue reading

Also loving the latest episode of Community! My favorite moment? When Jeff dramatically tells his fellow classmates that if they die (in paintball), they'll always have Denny's. Leonard responds by asking which one : ) I never quite understood the allure of Denny's as a college student. I remember thinking... Continue reading

Loving the latest episode of The Office. My ROFL moment: when Andy is talking to Erin & Gabe tries to prevent the friendship from developing further. Gabe tells Erin that Andy said he wasn't interested in Erin. Andy answers something along the lines of: "Do I like Erin? No....or maybe...yes,... Continue reading

It's been awhile since I've been to a classical concert (although I was classically trained in piano & violin). The "Brahms Unbound" series featuring composer Steven Mackey's violin concerto "A Beautiful Passing" tempts me this weekend. In Mackey's words "The governing metaphor..has to do with the violin gaining control of... Continue reading

This is an interesting article about the USDA's definition of a "food desert". I have to agree that Santa Barbara is in that category. I lived there for a few years & the lengths I had to go to just to get to a grocery store was insane. And even... Continue reading

Los Angeles abounds with many talented actors & actresses (recognized or not). What of the ones that have not yet been recognized? Well, it's only a matter of time. While this sentiment had always been percolating in the back of my mind, it was not until recently that it hit... Continue reading

Photo Courtesy of Jessie Murray Walking into Barbrix is like walking into a rustic inn or wine bar in the countryside. Perhaps the backdrop of the hills of Silverlake adds to this feeling of transportment. The humble restaurant is small, cozy, and intimate, but not to be underestimated. The wine... Continue reading

In this city of Angels (and non-Angels), there is a myriad of dining options. Amidst a constant bombardment of kitschy decor, huge billboards, and a constant onslaught of advertisements, it is difficult to cull the wheat from the chaff. In other words, a desensitization to the gaudy flashiness makes it... Continue reading
