Ex Anniversaries and Steak Salad Nicoise

Last week would have been my twelfth wedding anniversary and I never really know what to do with that day any more. I look forward to the next great relationship so that I don’t feel the need to mark it any longer, but for now, we persist. The last few years I’ve spent it as…

RIP Jeanne Moreau

“Nostalgia is when you want things to stay the same. I know so many people staying in the same place. And I think, my God, look at them! They’re dead before they die. That’s a terrible risk. Living is risking.”  

Funk Food: Dan Dan Zucchini Noodles

My life is beginning to feel like a constant ebb and flow of travel and eating whatever I want and coming home and counting calories. It’s a little annoying as it seems like the last couple years if I just look at food the wrong way, the weight sticks around FOREVER. Anyone else feeling the…

Stuff I Ate at Hotel San Cristobal

The Hotel San Cristobal was not only gorgeous, the sunsets spectacular, but the food was overwhelmingly wonderful. So much so that there was a chef party under the moonlight I so desperately wanted to crash. And everyone knows the ruin across the street full of chefs can’t be wrong. First order of business upon arriving…

Hanging Out at Hotel San Cristobal

I spent my three gorgeous days at the Hotel San Cristobal strolling the beach, floating around reading in a pink inner tube, and sitting poolside Shazaming the hell out of a constant bad ass 1970’s surfer vibe playlist. It was true love. Like any tiny design hotel, I didn’t want to leave, so I took…

Hotel San Cristobal

In my never ending quest of taking romantic vacations by myself, you know I just had to parlay a long weekend in Todos Santos on the front end of a San Diego work trip. I had been reading about the Bunkhouse Group’s newest hotel, Hotel San Cristobal, in Todos Santos for months and became OBSESSED….

Li’l (Fort) Wayne

Last week I embarked on a tour de Mid-West, visiting family in Fort Wayne, aka Li’l Wayne, aka Fort Wheezy, aka Fort Wheezy F. Baby, followed by a weekend in Columbus for the wedding of one of my nearest and dearest. Not having been back to either spot in nearly two years, I’d forgotten how…

Bobo vs Hipsters

Bobo or Hipster? Which are you? You can guess what I am…. Take the quiz and let me know what types of brilliant folks are reading my blog. 🙂 Also, is this not the most charming newsletter in the history of newsletters?! If you aren’t already signed up to become more Parisian, particularly with a…

Nutella Bark

What’s the world’s most perfect food? Nutella, of course! That’s why when I needed a truly quick (like 20 minutes) quick treat to bake for a recent birthday, I turned to this super simple recipe. It’s the quality ingredients that make it, so it can be a tad pricey to throw together, but perfect when…

Other Grand Snacks in Grand Cayman

It wasn’t all tasting menus and drinks on the beach. I managed to eat a bevy of other thangs as well, because, well…what else was I to do? Because I’m just a dainty lady, these 15 things were my top favorites: Burrata at Ave. Holy crap, this was hands down the best burrata of my…

Chef’s Counter at Avecita

After a delicious dinner the first night at Ave in the gorgeous Kimpton Seafire, I basically felt like family. Everyone at this restaurant was beyond wonderful and honestly every night I dined there (all but once) really solidified a memorable vacation experience. I don’t know if I was the first single lady to ever grace…

Le Bon Marche, Tres Rive Gauche

If you’re like me and aren’t able to make a jaunt to Paris this summer, at least you can shop like you did! Today, Parisian staple, Le Bon Marche launched their online site, 24 Sevres. The website is just as gorgeous as you’d imagine, although it lacks the badass food hall. Oh well, some things…
