2014 MTV Movie Awards

I have to admit, my favorite part about the MTV Movie Awards was the fashion. Lupita stole my heart again and I have to give her my vote for best dressed! She looked stunning in this Chanel dress. Who were your faves?

Doma Kitchen Cafe Redondo Beach


I love the artsy vibe at Doma Kitchen Cafe.

Doma Kitchen is located in the heart of Redondo Beach right on PCH. When I lived there years ago the space used to be a drive thru coffee shop but owners Stan and Angie have completely transformed the place into an eclectic little hideaway serving delicious, healthy food.


The food, atmosphere and hospitality at Doma Kitchen will keep you coming back! We sampled breakfast, lunch and dinner and it was all delicious! I especially loved the kale salad pictured above center. It was voted the best in the South Bay!

The globally inspired menu is prepared with fresh, farmers market ingredients and they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner all day!


Our “Doma Foodie Crew”! Owner Angie is on the far left and Chef Kristina is on the far right.

Doma Kitchen is located at 420 North PCH Redondo Beach, CA 90277.

Not only are the clothes amazing but the hair, beauty and accessory trends are fun to look at too! Available now from Schiffer Fashion Press $45.

Ròk Sushi Kitchen Hermosa Beach

My new friend Missy, me, my old friend Stephanie and Kim Lai from Eatin Asian (totally photo bombing us) at the Ròk Sushi Kitchen media tasting!

Spring is just around the corner and Ròk Sushi invited me to the unveiling of their new seasonal cocktails. Ummm…yes please! Everything was delicious. I didn’t have a favorite because they were all so unique and refreshing. Exactly what I would want to be drinking 1 block from the ocean in the heart of Hermosa Beach. If you are in the area you have to stop in and try a cocktail along with 1 (or 2 or 3 or 4) of their AMAZING hamachi tacos! The shell is a wonton!! I could eat them all day for the rest of my life! If you aren’t in the area they were kind enough to share their spring cocktail recipes so you can recreate them. Cheers!
