Compartes Chocolatier

I always have to try a fancy chocolate brand to see if it is worth its sticker price, but beyond the taste, Compartes has really nailed the presentation. Based in Los Angeles, Compartes is known for its themed packaging and classic LA partnerships (like the Beverly Hills Hotel or Ice Cream Museum chocolate bars). The … More Compartes Chocolatier

Geoffrey’s Malibu

With my current obsession for Highway 1 and Malibu, and too small of a budget to currently afford a home in Malibu, I’m always looking for other ways to spend my days near the Pacific Ocean. Notes On Geoffrey’s Malibu: So on my ocean-side restaurant list was Geoffrey’s Malibu. Located right off Highway 1, Geoffrey’s … More Geoffrey’s Malibu

Dodger Stadium

  Most baseball stadiums are pretty similar and straight forward, so notes on my first experience at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles are brief. I am personally not a huge baseball fan (if I’m spending money on season tickets it would be for basketball over baseball), but I am not one to turn down free … More Dodger Stadium

Sandra, Cate, Mindy, and Sarah do not get bad reviews, they just don’t. Some party poopers have … More Ocean’s 8

Drybar

I was very skeptical of a “drybar” concept, as my first thought was why not just go to a full service hair salon and get your hair done if you need it for a special event. I was also skeptical of the idea of paying to get your hair styled for everyday life. I was … More Drybar

Solo

Notes On The Film Solo: I cannot handle Han Solo’s terrible hair in this film. I think overall the film for me gets a B, but that hair gets a D-. Donald Glover continues to be a national treasure. I was waiting for Lando’s character to show up and was very excited when he finally … More Solo
