Let’s get festive!

I love love love the holidays.  From the décor to the carols to the butter cookies with egg nog.  Count me in!  Not to forget the great festive looks you get to create as well during the holiday season.  Fuzzy sweaters are always a good idea for a nice, festive look.  Pictured here, I have a silver $5 H&M gem I purchased during the Black Friday promos.  I mean fuzziness screams “it’s the holidays” and I liked the fact it was a bit over-sized so I could pair it with a fitted jean.   I also recently ventured off in search for new denim.  I felt as if I needed a fresh start and lucked up at Zara’s.

To my surprise I could fit some of their tapered skinny jeans.  The light denim paired well with the silver so I decided to rock these versus a darker denim.  I originally pictured me wearing this sweater with black but I’m glad I opted for a lighter denim.  Okay, my next obsession is the rose gold Steve Madden pumps I’m wearing here.  I fell in love with these when I first saw them at Nordstrom’s and decided then I had to own them.  I went online to check out reviews regarding comfort and size comparisons and here we have it.  My new prized possession.  Silver and gold always compliments each other nicely when I think of interior design or fashion so I thought why not rose gold too.  The picture-perfect Christmas tree on Rodeo Drive made for the best festive backdrop, don’t you think?  Happy Holidays and enjoy time with your family and friends.  Check out more from my festive look.

Meet me at Mel’s

Mel’s Diner is considered a huge staple here in Los Angeles so it was only right that I made a visit to indulge in some of the diner’s favorite go to entrees.  The décor gives you an Old Hollywood vibe while staying consistent with the ambiance of a true diner.  Busy waiters going through the aisles, a semi open kitchen to see the food being made fresh to order and the infamous jukebox in the corner awaiting a customer to drop in a quarter and select an old tune to take you back to a nostalgic time.

I decided to try the French toast and my husband went with the old-fashioned buttermilk pancakes.  You cannot go wrong with either choice.  Both entrees were great and just what we had wanted in terms of getting that real breakfast fix.  So far, I’ve seen 2 Mel’s locations; one a block from Hollywood and another in the Sherman Oaks area but I believe there’s a total of 4. The next time you visit California, I would be sure to make a stop here.  It’s open 24 hours and has a welcoming menu of pretty much any craving you may have.  Take a look at some of the snapshots I was able to get from Mel’s.
