I recently dined at one of my favorite new restaurants, Christopher’s Kitchen in Palm Beach Gardens. They serve organic, plant based food that will blow your mind! I follow their restaurant on instagram, and was excited about this dish which can also accompany the perfect fall evening: sautéed shiitake mushrooms served over jasmine rice, grilled artichoke, roasted sweet potato served with truffle ketchup (What even is that? I must know!), grilled asparagus and almond coleslaw!

It’s also worth noting that they make a ridiculously tasty chocolate mousse pie, which is made from cacao, cashews, coconut, dates, vanilla, pecans, and sea salt. I want 500 more, but that might perhaps be a bit gluttonous…

 

Stay Home on Black Friday

I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! Things have been rough for all of us, but this day is a time to reflect on what we DO have- what makes our lives more whole.

I am grateful for my loving, intelligent, creative and talented friends, my supportive family, for living in the beautiful and dynamic city of Los Angeles, California, and my sweet pup Mortimer, most of all.

With all of the hardships and hatred that our world is experiencing right now, I can only hope that each of us does our part to bring joy and compassion to others. I am most thankful for compassion and understanding amongst each other.

As I’m really not a fan of Black Friday and the madness that ensues around it, I’m happy to announce a great online sale with one of my partners, Shopbop. You can stay home and still receive discounts on your favorite inspiring designs.

Shopbop Sale

20151013_friendsfamily_01

Friends and family: Only 24 hours left to take advantage of Shopbop’s awesome sale! I’ve basically turned into an emo teenager, longing and pining for some of these fabulous designs. I’m also definitely having a beige and draping moment- maybe replicating sand dunes metaphorically? I hope Los Angeles gets with it and realizes it’s October so I can bury myself under a cowl-neck sweater and take a bath in lavender tea, perhaps.

I’m posting some of my favorite fall looks available through the site below!

SALE: Prints by Alison Scarpulla

Alison Scarpulla is a 22 year-old film photographer, and she is one of my absolute favorites. With each new image she delivers, Alison transports me to a mystery-haven; like some wildflower dream-world: I relate to her perspective in entirety. “My photography is like a painted interpretation of the unit of myself and my surroundings,” she says. One of her techniques includes editing film negatives with acid and wine, to create a mystical effect. There’s a duality of celestial grace and unsettling decay, which is a theme in most of my favorite artworks. One of my most beloved film genres is that of Italian Giallo (which her still images remind me of) as they both explore the balance of glamour and morbidity. With often blurred and distorted protagonists being the focus of her stories, the identity of the subject is not key, but rather its relationship to circumstantial matter.


“The grave receives you with love. Surrender yourself to the Earth. Return what was loaned to you. Give up your pleasure, your pain, your friends, your lovers, your life, your past, what you desire. You will know nothingness, it is the only reality. Don’t be afraid, it’s so easy to give. You’re not alone, you have a grave. It was your first mother. The grave is the door to your rebirth. Now you will surrender the faithful animal you once called your body. Don’t try to keep it, remember, it was a loan. Surrender your legs, your sex, your hair, your brain, your all. You no longer want to possess, possession is the ultimate pain. The earth covers your body, she came to cover you with love, because she is your true flesh. Now you are an open heart, open to receive your true essence your ultimate perfection. Your new body, which is the universe, the work of god. You will be born again, you will be real. you will be your own father, your own mother, your own child, your own perfection. Open your eyes, you are the earth, you are the green, you are the blue, you are the Aleph, you are the essence. Look at the flower, look at the flower, for the first time look at the flowers.” – The Holy Mountain (and a quote Alison uses to describe her philosophy)
