The King Ad-Rock...

Can't wait to watch this episode tonight because my boyfriend is a HUGE Beastie Boys fan and I am a fan of desserts, so pretty much a show that has something for both of us!

Stevie Nicks...

I randomly caught the "Hard Rock Calling" concert from Hyde Park in London on tv this morning with an amazing lineup of some of my favorites. Stevie Nicks was seriously awesome, I've always been a fan of her and Fleetwood Mac but her performance during the concert amazed me, she still rocks it and has such a unique voice, if you come across this on tv definitely tune in!

Beachwood BBQ...

Remember when I posted about the BBQ joint I've been meaning to try since July...well this is it, Beachwood BBQ in Long Beach. The owners just opened this location after many years of success in Seal Beach, and they also use this location to brew their own beer.

I'm not a big beer drinker but after looking at the selection on the wall I couldn't help but pick one, and decided on Dogfish Head Punkin ale. I was super psyched to find out they serve half pours (6oz)...SCORE and the beer was really good...DOUBLE SCORE! I was going to go for the pulled chicken but when I saw that the sandwich version was served on a pretzel roll I had to order it, I've never tried one, but thought it sounded amazing. I'm glad that I took a chance as it was the perfect match to the bbq pulled chicken and something crave-worthy in the future. Overall, my boyfriend and I left happy and we will definitely make the trip down again whenever we feel the need for some good BBQ and beer.

A Day of Chambray...

My boyfriend and I finally ventured to Long Beach to try a BBQ joint we've been meaning to try since July. While we were walking back to our car I spotted this seafoam green painted wall of an abandoned building and made him snap a few pics. It's starting to feel a bit more like fall here and I'm loving it.

What I'm Wearing:
Nation Ltd Santa Monica Chambray Shirt, F21 shorts, Vintage Necklace, Hermes and vintage bracelets, Trusty YSL bag

Trophy Wife...

Loving my nails right now, I bought this color awhile ago and have no idea why I've waited this long to use it. I'm all about mixing it up right now and figured these left over Sally Hansen salon effects would do the trick.

Urth Day..

Mondays just got a bit better if you live in LA and love Urth Caffe like I do. I went to the Beverly Drive location today and saw that they are offering 50% off coffee, espresso and tea Mondays from 6-11am, not sure if the others are participating as well but I know I'll be visiting come Monday.

Obsession...Balmain Resort 2012

I can't get over how amazing Natasha Poly and Anja Rubik looked at Gucci's Fashion Night Out in Paris. Anja is hands down my pick for best dressed from FNO with her entire look from Balmain, but the booties....AGH those booties!!! They have now taken over the #1 spot on my wish/want list and I'm thinking I probably don't want to know how much they cost, but I know they need to make their way into my closet regardless and if the dress version of Anja's skirt appeared in there too I wouldn't be mad...

Boot Camp...

I was so excited for my Isabel Marant boots to arrive after what seemed like forever! I've been patiently waiting for the fall boots to come out since the spring version sold out months ago. They are seriously the most comfortable boots I own, is it crazy that I'm already wanting to purchase them in black too?

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner...

Each holiday weekend it seems like everyone flees LA leaving it feeling like a ghost town. For me it's a treat to be able to drive around without traffic and try out new places that usually have a wait. I've been wanting to try BLD for breakfast although the line of people waiting on the weekends usually makes me rethink that choice, but this weekend is a different story with plenty of open tables and no wait. I ended up deciding on a blueberry ricotta pancake and brûléed grapefruit, and I loved the way they serve up the maple syrup in little tin cabins. I'll definitely be returning to breakfast at BLD although I may have to wait for the next holiday weekend to avoid a wait again.
