Hello Kitty Heaven!

25 Oct

Last week my friends and I went to the Hello Kitty Grand Cafe in Irvine, California. It was pretty, pink and perfect. It was nostalgic for me because I was obsessed with Hello Kitty as a kid. The cafe is so cute in the front when you enter. It’s super “Insta worthy” and has plenty of places to take pictures. They sell drinks, merchandise and pastries. But if you want to take it to the next level, you can make a reservation for the Bow room, which is a small room through a locked door in the back of the cafe. It is reservation only and is usually booked far in advance.  You can take a risk and walk in and hope that  someone cancels, the odds are slim so my advice would be to make a reservation online to guarantee a spot. It almost feels like a secret society and once you go in, it’s a magical Hello Kitty pink paradise! The bow room has tea service during the day ($55 per person before tax and tip). Each person is served sweet and savory bites along with a personal teapot filled with the tea of their choice. In the evening the bow room transitions into a speakeasy complete with Hello Kitty cocktails. I still need to go back for the cocktails!

If you love Hello Kitty, you must treat yourself to the Bow room.  You won’t regret it. I lost track of how many times my friends and I said “cute”. Every detail was so cute!

Glamping Getaway!

29 Aug

This weekend My wife and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary at the coolest glamping spot ever. We have glamped before in airstreams etc. but nothing tops this place. It’s located deep into Topanga canyon near Malibu. It is in a secluded, peaceful canyon and it is amazing. The place is owned by a women that lives in a house nearby and she’s super artistic and has created some of the most beautiful “campsites” I’ve ever seen. We stayed in the upper area called ‘Silver sky acres’. That area includes a huge outdoor deck with Barbecue, 3 outdoor comfy couches, a fire pit, a bench with umbrella and the use of 2 trailers. One of the trailers is a kitchen area with table and chairs inside as well as a couch. The other trailer includes the living room with couch and coffee table, a bedroom area and an area with a small table and chairs. Both trailers have no electricity, but there are plugs to charge your phones and wi-fi as well. There is an outdoor bathroom and shower(with warm water) as well. I got flooded with questions about this place, so here is the info. I advise you to BOOK IN ADVANCE. It fills up insanely quick.

Sidenote: I’ve never stayed at an Airbnb before, but my friend Olivia told me about this place and now I’m a fan of Airbnb for sure!!!! I can’t wait to go back to Silver sky acres!

The host also has 2 dogs that live in on the property, so that was nice to have furry friends around:)

Price.

For the area that we stayed in called ‘Silver Sky Acres‘  it was $125 per night plus a $45 cleaning fee. The area below called “The totem terrace”which is much larger and “fancier” was $400 per night. We didn’t rent that area but the host let us hang out down there too:) There is also an area called”she’s a beauty” that is located above where we stayed that is $125 per night.

Skaist Taylor

21 Aug

Skaist Taylor is building a following…….fast!  The “California eccentric” collection brought to us by the LA based designers who gave us Juicy Couture in 1996, is making major fashion waves.  The team has since sold Juicy Couture to Liz Claiborne Corp. and have dived right into the Skaist Taylor line.  Pamela Skaist- Levy and Gela Nash- Taylor launched the boho- chic line during new York Fashion Week this past Spring to rave reviews.  Don’t worry there will be no tracksuits this time around!  Remember wearing those everywhere??????  I admit I must have a dozen tracksuits lying around and still wear them to lounge in the house, I was a bonified “Juicy” girl…. But there comes a time for every fashion “moment” to move on though and this is that time for Pamela & Gela!

Skaist taylor is available now at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Skaist Taylor.
