I don’t want to say I’m back, but I am feeling inspired. With the kid at sleep away camp (and having a blast) I find myself with more free time than usual. This week I took full advantage of the fact that I didn’t have to be home by a specific time or pay a sitter. We tried two new restaurants (well new to us) and I went not once but twice to a relatively new gym in Santa Monica, Gloveworx.
This is my first blog post in far too long. I’ve been scared to start up again for fear of letting myself down again. That said I have so much to say and share. For starters let me share this post I wrote on what blogging has taught me about content marketing. You can read the post here:
Cheers to this. The most delicious,low-calorie, premium, ready-to-pour vodka based beverage.
I don’t care if you aren’t vegan. Go to Sage, a plant based bistro in Culver City. Since going there to celebrate my birthday a week ago I can’t stop thinking about my next visit. Everything I tried was beyond delicious. It’s one of those places where I found myself wanting everything on the menu. Now, if only they would open in Pacific Palisades or Santa Monica.

Thanks to my dear friend for introducing me to 1509 pure fragrance oil.
Regretting those expensive shoes you bought last year but only wore once? Wishing you had the money for the Valentino flats you are desperately wanting. Check out Shop Hers.
Shop Hers is a luxury marketplace exclusively dedicated to pre-owned designer fashion. It is well curated and easy to use and navigate.
I had the pleasure of meeting CEO Jacyln and VIP Shopper Ilana this week at the Girls Lounge. Let’s just say I think I met my Style Soul Mates.
You want to be friends with their girls, shop their closet, and shop their friends’ closets. If you covet nice things or have nice things to sell and you are not on Shop Hers check it out. You can thank me later.
No, I’m not going to make you laugh but I can tell you where to go if you want a good laugh: UCB Theater.
Many a Saturday nights we head to Hollywood to catch the 7pm Sentimental Lady: Guilty Pleasures Show at UCB Theater. Tickets are $5 a piece and you have to reserve them in advance (it always sells out). I’ve seen a number of shows at UCB Theater but Sentimental Lady is far and away my favorite.
The show is divided into two parts. During the first part the team asks someone in the audience to share a guilty pleasure, questions them about the pleasure, and then performs a series of scenes all tied to what the audience member has shared. I am so impressed with how the team members can remember all of the little details and bring them out with perfect timing.
The second half is based on an audience response to the question, name something you used to be into that you are not into any more. The second half is great but the first half is always my favorite. I love the interaction between the team and the audience member sharing his/her guilty pleasure. Again, this is Improv so no material exists before the show starts. Read: the people performing are smart and incredibly quick.
While UCB isn’t a fitness class or the latest food (like most of my posts) I will tell you that you might have sore abs from laughing so hard. And speaking of food you should eat the amazing crispy brussels sprout leaves at La Poubellle after.
I have so many things to write about but my blog has taken a back seat. That being said, I’ve been thinking a lot about what to write lately and how to write it to reach my audience.
Here is a post I wrote for work. When it comes to my favorite business topics it would definitely be content marketing. In my spare time I’d love to bring some of these formats to life on my own blog. But for now enjoy another side to me.
Has anyone seen Flash Tattoos? It is no surprise that my very talented & beautiful friend Ellen Dante of Deity Jewels came over last night sporting them on her wrists along with some of her amazing jewelry.
I found some Flash Tattoos online today that are calling my name. Oh and Ellen’s jewelry is always calling my name. This wrap bracelet is at the top of my list.
