Ciao! Eataly comes to L.A

For those of you that haven't heard of a little piece of heaven on earth called "Eataly" in NYC- well I recommend you get to know it so that you can appreciate the good news I'm about to announce. The word on the street is that Eataly is coming to L.A!! Everything is still under negotiation but the location would be somewhere in West Hollywood.

Here is a little inside scoop for those of you that don't have a clue to what Eataly is:
Located in NYC's FlatIron District, Eataly is a 50,000 square foot Italian gourmet market. Each specific item such as pasta, salumi, fresh mozzarella, etc. has its own section within this market. If that isn't enough to knock your socks off- Eataly sells a vast selection of Italian products that no other market has access to. In the midst of all this excitement, I forgot to mention another wonderful thing about Eataly... There are restaurants inside too! They have specific restaurants devoted to pasta, pizza, fish, and even veggies. I wont even get started on the Wine and Dessert section- we would be here all day! It's like being in Italy without having to use up your miles- Perfetto!!

Perfect Pair

For the past 2 weeks (more like forever) the weather in San Francisco has been nothing but wet, cold, and borderline depressing. We have been advised of severe rain storms, tornados and even tsunamis. I guess this calls for one thing: Rainy Day Armor. Here are 2 pairs of cute and stylish sets to help you look great- and stay dry!

A couple months ago I posted a post regarding Famous Hot Chocolates. To my surprise, a friend of mine just gave me one of the famous HugMugs from Max Brenner. I just tested it out and LOVED IT!

Donations Needed!

The American Red Cross is asking for any donations ($) you might be able to give to help the victims of Japan's Earthquake/tsunami that hit earlier today. This terrible event has even brought aftershocks to the Bay Area. Santa Cruz has been hit with swells that has damaged a couple of boat harbors.  The coast guard is on close watch if any tsunami after shocks might hit our coastline.
Here are some amazing yet sad shots from the tsunami's invading parts of Japan after the 8.9 Earthquake. I felt like I was watching one of those Hollywood, "End of the world" movies- Its def breathtaking to see the force and speed of the waves and water. Everything is washed away... My prayer and heart goes out to all the victims!!
