Adventures

The Voice

Living in Los Angeles has a few perks, and screenings are definitely one of them. Last week we had the opportunity to attend a taping of The Voice, and it definitely left some of us the wishing we had a set of pipes ourselves.

This is Adam Levine’s chair. It may be a blurry photo, but we thought this fact was worth including it.

A Malibu Affair

This past weekend Saturday was spent at a dear friends’ gorgeous wedding at Saddle Rock Ranch in Malibu. A beautiful wedding always lends itself to design inspiration, and after this weekend I can’t wait to add some new designs to our wedding collection!The cake (complete with R2-D2 cake toppers!) & the outdoor seating

The bride and groom & the lovely note for their guests

The grooms cake – a ghostbuster! – and designers Robyn Rhodes & Cody Elderkin

What’s your most memorable part of a wedding – yours or anyone else’s?

Antiquity Trip

This weekend I made it over to one of my favorite museums, the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades. They are currently holding a Pompeii exhibit complete with casts of victims – both human and canine – from the AD 79 eruption of Mount Vesuvius. However, 2,000 year old victim remains aside, the Getty Villa has so much beauty to offer in way of both antiquity and architecture.

Couldn’t help but snatch a shot of some of the jewelry in the gift shop…look familiar?

 

Crystal Creations

With a new line released starting this week, and a future one swiftly in creation, we had a wonderful excuse to get out of the office today. Our little field trip to a crystal distributor here in Los Angeles was filled with some amazing statues, a beautiful teapot, and lots and lots of sparkle.  

Adventure Alert! Melrose Trading Post

While our iPhone’s were unfortunately dead (shame on us), we did have an amazing little adventure at the Melrose Trading Post at Fairfax High School. Perhaps one of the best flea markets in LA county, we can’t sum up the experience quite as well as their website

“Described as a cool, eclectic gem of a place to find treasures and rare goodies, the Melrose Trading Post is a great Sunday destination.  You can expect to find something to make you say “wow” every single time you visit.   Enjoy the food court in the beautifully landscaped upper quad.  Relax to the live jazz band’s melodic vibes.  Treat yourself to a different kind of day.”

$2 and the chance to explore vintage finds upon vintage finds? We can’t imagine a better way to spend a Sunday.
