Every time I find a wonderful place I think Ooh I should blog about that. Then I never do blog about it because I get busy with a rant from my son or an old lady talking about a purple penis.
In no particular order here are a few places and things I’ve been meaning to share with you and none of them are sponsored. It’s just stuff I love.
Your Little Film: If you’re in the LA area and need an event filmed Logan and his team did a magnificent job for Jane’s school play. In addition to event filming he can also take all your baby videos (in any format) and turn it into a little film you’ll actually watch and enjoy.
Rubio Optical or AB See Optical: If your child needs glasses and you live close to the Beverly Center to to AB See Optical. If you’re in the valley Rubio Optical is your best bet. Alexander wore glasses from infancy to age 9 and we went to at dozen places for glasses. ABSee and Rubio are the best with no one coming in as a close third.
The C Salon: I had my second haircut there and I no longer hate going to the salon. Why did I punish myself in Beverly Hills for all those years (and all those dollars)?
Heritage Bookshop: I found the most perfect gift for my Dad’s 70th here. It was a first edition of David Copperfield. It’s a beautiful store and everyone was incredibly nice even though I clearly wasn’t one of their big spenders (OMG they have $60,000 books). They helped me find a fabulous book in my budget and I know it was a hit with Dad.
Bacara Resort: I swear I’m going to do a full write up and review before the week ends. But trust me. Just go there.
Paige Denim: They’re in the department stores so even though the jeans aren’t cheap they do go on sale pretty quickly. If you can swing a trip to the store on Robertson you’ll be delighted because everyone working there is really nice and competent and they’ll help you find pants that flatter your figure.
Babolat tennis shoes: The propulse is an excellent shoe for a narrow foot. My son and I both wear them and I’m about to grab my third pair. I think the velcro is what makes them so wonderful for my foot.
Nude Heels: I might have gone overboard but this summer I’m wearing my AGLs when I don’t have a pedicure and my Stella McCartneys when I do.
Sarah Maizes has a new book out for your little one. It’s On My Way to the Bath. Watch this and I dare you to stop smiling.
Seconded on the Bacara Resort. Went there with my fam on a business trip for my dad when I was in high school and it was like “oh, THIS is how the other half really lives!” So lovely.
Thank you for giving me a reason to buy more shoes.
Barcara is amazing. Went there for an anniversary with my husband a few years back. Loved it.
