oceanside brunching in {del mar}....

Kitchen1540-del-mar

For a lovely brunch or lunch by the ocean, take your dearest to dine at Kitchen 1540 in the L'Auberge Hotel in Del Mar. Like a mini sun-filled vacation, the modern space surely feels like an escape from the everyday hustle and bustle. The almond french toast was a decadent breakfast treat while the beet salad offered a refreshing lunch-perfect palate cleanser.

Final thoughts...4 out of 5 happy ladies for calm ambiance, service, and delicious fare.

happy friday + flowers in your hair...

Anna-Wolf-photographer

Happy Friday folks! I'm sending more springy vibes your way especially to my friends & readers on the East Coast covered in snow. I know it's easy for me to say from Southern California, but spring is on its way, I promise! I love this image by Anna Wolf, so ethereal and so beautiful. Have a great weekend all!

{taste tested}: chocolate covered pomegranate seeds

Trader-joes-chocolate-pomegranate

This Happy Lady is always looking for new ways to snack. While a cupcake-a-day would be lovely treat indeed, it's not always a realistic option to satiate that afternoon sugar fix. Feast your eyes on Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Seeds. Chocolate + antioxidants = the perfect bit of sweet just about any time. The texture is both crunchy {from the seeds} and chewy {from the dried pomegranate flesh} creating a guilt-free fruit and chocolate concoction worth sampling.

Final thoughts...4 out of 5 happy ladies for taste, texture, and for being so darn hard to stop eating.

polish penchant...

Ohjoy-nail-polish

The other day, someone asked me a question on Formspring about nail polish, so I thought it would be fun to see what your favorite colors are. My short nails are almost always covered in a red/coral/peachy shade of sorts. I love Essie's Cute as a Button as well as Revlon's Craving Coral and Tropical Temptation. I am dying to try Happy Birthday {a multi-color glitter} by Deborah Lippmann, a favorite of the Ban.do girls, as well as Wayward {taxi cab yellow} by Illamasqua which looks fab on Mrs. Lilien. What are your standby shades?
