I'm currently reading Jennifer Scott's Lessons from Madame Chic 20 Stylish Secrets I Learned While Living in Parisand can't put it down. I've been trying to incorporate her advice into my life and one of the lessons is art. "Learning to appreciate art can change the way you see the world around you." Visiting the LA museums has ignited the appreciation and when I came home I hosted a pastels class taught by my dear friend Maha. It turned out to be a colorful, productive, and lovely day.
Found this gem by accident and what a gem it was! Not only was the museum free, but the collection was phenomenal-paintings, Roman statues, and a sarcophagus. I especially enjoyed the interactive art room where we could channel our inner artist-painter and actor.
It took another hour of driving in sunny LA before we found thisvegan bakery that had lines out the door. Is it because the owner was on the Martha Stewart show or is it because everyone in LA is health conscious? I made myself enjoy the overpriced, lackluster tasting baked goods because I knew I wasn't coming back.
This restaurant has been featured in several Southern California blogs that I had to check it out! It took hours to find, but worth it. Relaxing atmosphere, gorgeous interior, excellent service and delicious food. Everything is so stylish, even the patrons look good. Then I had to remind myself that I was in Southern CA.
