Hi lovlies

This wasn’t my first time at Rivabella Restaurant and I loved it since the very first time I came here. The location in West Hollywood is super amazing (right above Sunset Strip and minutes away from Bootsy Bellows Nightclub where you can go rub shoulders with Ed Westwick real quick after dinner).

What really makes this place so unique is the interior decoration. It’s an Italian restaurant with a Tuscan flair, beautiful trees and lots of green surroundings inside. You’ll feel like sitting in an conservatory at your house in Italy. This must be how George Clooney feels. I get it now, George.

The Antipasti were amazing and really did it more for me than the Entrees. I love it here best over lunch when you can see all the details of the Restaurant. I wanna be honest, I love coming to Rivabella not so much for the food but for the atmosphere because it gives you such a calm and peaceful feeling. I’d call it “Girl meets Provence”, if that makes any sense!

Have a beautiful day! xx

Hi loves

I’ve seen so many celebs walk into this place so I wanted to see for myself how good it really is and if it’s worth the hype. So let me tell you all, the hype is real! It’s a rather small Cafe and not too crowded plus you’ll get a table right away. It’s such a lovely and charming place to just sit and have breakfast or coffee or to go to town on whatever you want (the menu has quite the impressive selection!). We loved it a lot so we kept coming back.

The food is GREAT and the prices are very appropriate. I really recommend it guys. Oh and does anyone remember Jasper from “The Holiday”? Yeah no that’s what I thought, but we saw him here so that makes this place kinda officially cool because the movie is awesome!

Have a beautiful day. X

Hello loves

One of the first days out in Los Angeles and I already got a sunburn! What should I say, I got it from my mama, I shall not be mad. At least I got some color.

Pre-Dinner hangout on our beautiful terrace in ‘da Hills wearing a white ZARA crop top with a blue ZARA skirt which reminded me of last seasons burberry skirts, a whole lot cheaper of course. The shoes are strappy silver watersnake Christian Louboutin’s.

Hair blowout by DryBar in West Hollywood. I LOVE them. They’re located on Sunset Blvd. and have a flat fee of $40 for any blowout style, yay! I’m very lazy with my hair (especially when on vacation) so this is the perfect place.

My very long but beautiful nails done by “esNAIL” on Melrose (I love them, too!). But I quickly realised I can’t function with this nail length anymore. I guess “I’m too old for this shit.”

Have the most beautiful day. xX

It’s pure elegance, beauty and a dream come true for those among us who always wanted to open their own store. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen made all those dreams come true with the opening of their very first flagship store for “The Row” in Los Angeles.

Located at 8440 Melrose Place (one of L.A.’s chicest shopping streets) you can find their luxury brand retail store for the brand they created 8 years ago.

It’s a dreamy 3 800-square-foot building with glassed-in forecourt pool and it literally calls you to step in! I will definitely make it my goal to visit the store this summer! It is absolutely magnificent. xX

MINIMALE ANIMALE

Hi beach babes

Let’s get back to fashion for a second. I’ve discovered this brand months ago but still haven’t gotten a chance to write about it. But since this will be my new summer do I need to show it to you because it’s great! MINIMALE ANIMALE is a bikini brand by the amazingly talented Cassandra Kellogg and whereelse would she be from but CALIFORNIA! This girl is a vision. She really makes me excited to go work out for summer because those bikinis require one hell of a beach bod. Her Bikinis and Monikinis are definitely a show-off.

You can get her pieces on http://www.minimale-animale.com/shop or
http://www.revolveclothing.com

And hurry up, some of them are on SALE!

HALLOWEEN – Eat, drink and be scary..

Ahh where do I start when it comes to talking about Halloween? It’s going to be a long post. Halloween, it’s the best holiday of the year, competing reeeally closely with Christmas. I don’t have many favorite places in the world but this right here is one. Me in the middle of many many beautiful orange pumpkins at Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood, LA. I can’t wait to live in the USA since we people here in Switzerland don’t even really celebrate Halloween. I mean REALLY celebrate and appreciate it, how mankind should.

What’s cooler then Universal Studios’s Halloween Horror Nights? Or LA’s Haunted Hayride? The answer is nothing, guys, nothing is cooler.

And there’s this one thing I love more then fashion, probably more then anything in the world. It’s FOOD. Festive and traditional as I am, I want to share some Halloween recipes with you guys, or actually just the pictures of them and you can find everything on this lovely website http://www.foodnetwork.com/halloween/package/index.html 🙂

Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend

Today I really need to talk about a huge obsession, fascination and admiration of mine. It’s Jewelry. And to be specific, it’s Jacquie Aiche‘s Jewelry. This woman is just incredible. Based in Los Angeles, CA, Jacquie brought a whole new idea of jewelry into this world and we all need to thank her. The rings, the body chains, the necklaces, or simply everything she designs is from another planet. I’m so in LOVE!

Jacquie was raised in a family with two cultural influences. Her father is Egyptian and her mother is American Indian, and you can tell the influence by her designs. Ancient designs such as goddesses and amulets and with natural minerals and gemstones, turquoise and fossils. Simply beautiful.

Her Los Angeles Showroom is by appointment only but luckily, you can shop everything online on http://www.jacquieaiche.com.

Now watch and marvel:
