ask me anything
Will you still love me, tomorrow?

Bottega Louie Booster

Do you have a happy place? Y’know like whenever you feel sad, and you enter your favourite space and instantly you feel a little better? Well, it was the afternoon after Jack Layton’s state funeral. Puffy eyed and and in need of a pick-me-up, I headed for brunch at my happy place in LA, Bottega Louie.

Even though it’s in downtown Los Angeles and not Manhattan, it’s exactly the kind of place I had imagined Carrie Bradshaw and the girls would brunch at when I was an early teen.

Everything is so whimsically beautiful! Le sigh*

Ms. Etienne made it to America!

Orange eyeliner, as much orange in my outfit as possible in memory of JACK!!

Pineapple mimosa.

Pink salt! How darling.

Smoked salmon eggs benedict, of course.

Tony is smiling even bigger than when we had brunch at Home. See what I mean about my happy place?

Will post our desserts tomorrow. Come back, or subscribe to my feed!

StyleCaster supper at LAVO Las Vegas

Day trip to Vegas! Went back since everyone was in town for Project and Magic. Got up bright and early with the sun. Then we figured out the blackout curtains. Bliss!

Got triple booked for dinner trying to fit in plans to see all of my friends from the East coast.
Vanity shots while waiting for an executive decision, haven’t worn a full face of make up in a long time. Gotta fit in in Sin City.

Went with the StyleCaster crew who invited me along to their dinner at LAVO. Here are the courses they picked for our tasting.

Heirloom Tomato Bufula Mozzarella

Tuna Tartare

StyleCaster’s sublime Associate Editor, Susie G. CEO, Ari Goldberg, beside her.

Chicken Marsala

Rigatoni Sausage Bolognese

Rachel, StyleCaster’s Social Media Manager here with their President, David Goldberg. Our perfect little dinner party of five.

Steak. Their chimichurri was sooooo delicious. Put that on everything.

Miss you so hard, Susie!!

Silver Lake Sprinkle

After brunch, Tony said “Wanna go to a meadow party?” and I was like “Yea!”
So we bought a bottle of $15 wine even though the liquor store clerk really wanted us to buy the $150 bottle.
Stopped to take a few snaps of my princess petticoat.

Life is just better when you try to dress like a toddlers and tiaras toddler.

First time at Silver Lake meadow. Plenty of pretty hipsters on their pinic blankets with their precious babies (OMG babies).

Always carry a wine opener – advice an alcoholic would give.

Thank you fancy lens for giving me legs.

Thank you Marc Jacobs for the extra few inches, too.

Finally got to meet Sophia. Her and her boyfriend are the cutest and they live so close why aren’t we all best friends yet hi call me I will be pestering you on facebook hey whatcha doing for dinner wanna eat how about a drink hi hello do you know any babes?

SPRINKLES ON TOAST. SPRINKLES on errthang it’s Summer who cares?

The group kept growing and growing which meant more treats and more good cheer. Why don’t we do this everyday?

Then Tony bought me a flower from a girl selling them from the middle of the road, she was doing it to stay with her man. Her man carrying a cardboard sign. Anything helps. So I helped by putting it in my hair and gave my last princess’ decree of the day which was get Chinese food at Sam Woo.

Chicken, roast pork, roast duck, and garlic sautéed snow pea leaves.

Woot!

Princess perch

Brunch with Tony!

He took me to Home in Los Feliz. I’d only gone to the Silver Lake location before.

They sat us in the nook on the second floor overlooking the rest of the patio. I renamed it the princess perch. Because I’m a princess.

I ordered the chilaquiles. I’m always super embarrassed to say it out loud but I think I have it down now.

Tony’s crab cake benedict.

Roe, roe, roe your bowl

Little Tokyo adventures! Honestly guys, the only thing I do in LA is work and eat (and feel sorry for myself for only working and eating and then eat some more because I feel so sorry for myself).

You can start considering this site a food blog. And sometimes there will be pretty girls who eat food.

Sayuri Sake. I asked for the sweetest sake they had and of course they gimme the princess bottle. Pastel pink booze! ~*KAWAII*~

You can’t have Japanese food without a camera shy half-Japanese girl.
Maria Aoki and I devoured those marinated peanuts. Refusal-to-eat-from-the-taco-truck-induced hunger pangs.

Salmon and salmon roe bowl. Mmmm I love ikura!!

Velocirapture

Here we are, waiting for the rapture. What started as a sunny Saturday in Manhattan, started getting all kinds of scary. Luckily, we heathens managed to avoid all the rain and wrathiness with our perfect timing.

Tony Leung swagger

Teeny-tiny salt and pepper shakers

Waiting for our brunch to be served at Paprika in East Village.

Eggs Benny for me, of course.

Rocky got the only frothy mimosa. Foammmmmmmm.

Parallel to the dance parade on St. Mark’s. Hella Bolivian dancers.

Do you know how to poach an egg?
You break it.
Expel into a vat of boiling water. Right in the eye of its cyclonic swirl.
Watch the yolk envelop within a weaker skin.
