Anti-aging Satin Pillowcases for Hair, Skin & Lashes

Pistachio On-the-Go in LA!


‘I Love LA!’ Randy Newman’s 1983 hit song did a bang up job highlighting the sunshine and fun-loving vibes of So-Cal life, but could you actually handle living there? After sitting in traffic on our way to LAX last weekend, dealing with baggage delays, wannabe socialites in the airport, and crowds everywhere; it makes day to day life in Dallas seem like a piece of cake.

During our quick trip to California, we navigated down Highway 1 on our way back to LAX last weekend and had 30 minutes to spare to grab a quick lunch with friends at a Vegan eatery in Venice Beach. Here’s my LA diary in a new Calvin Klein sheath dress that boldly matched my favorite pistachio handbag…


California Sidenote – ‘How can people handle this traffic everyday?’ we complained stuck in gridlock near LAX at 10 pm. The next morning, we woke up to the fresh ocean breeze and this view on our walk.

Question answered.


The Scene – Venice, CA on Abbot Kinney St.


Vegan Curious? I’m not vegan or vegetarian, but as we met up with friends at this restaurant in Venice Beach called Plant Food + Wine, I was really impressed!


Celebrity Sightings? As we re-feuled our Ford Fusion rental, I kept an eye out for Kylie, Caitlyn, Orlando, or anyone. No luck. We passed by Malibu, Calabasas and Venice Beach, but didn’t see any A or D listers.


Matchy/Matchy LA Style- During out last trip to So-Cal I wore all red in the OC. This trip, I couldn’t resist this pea green pistachio Calvin Klein dress that matched my brightest handbag perfectly.


Real Estate in LA? I loved this wall advertising a boutique real estate company in Venice Beach. If you’re in the market for a 2-bedroom apartment starting around $800K – $2 mil, check out Lighthouse Properties LA.
