Earlier this month part two of our project with UNIQLO was released! As mentioned previously we followed a dozen Angelenos around Los Angeles as they shared with us their favourite L.A spots.

Last night was pretty magical. I spent the evening dining with almost 2500 people in the middle of Will Rogers State Historic Park. Best described as a “happening”, the event, produced by Handmade Events, is designed to bring together thousands of people for a pop up dinner, al fresco, for an enchanting evening.
Tickets were $30, and tables first come first served. You bring your decorations, your “tablescape”, your food, your beer and wine and dine with your friends (and your 2000 new friends). The invite stated you must be dressed in white and the location was not revealed until 3pm on the day of the event (though you knew it was in the Santa Monica area)
I was invited by the Main and Rose PR girls, who were running press for the event. As such our table was hosted, and we were treated to food and drink and an expertly decorated table. The team went for an old Hollywood/Movie theme to honor Will Rogers.
One of the best parts was wandering around checking out how other guests had decorated their tables, one of our favourites was the Alice and Wonderland themed table (complete with costumed guests) but everyone was in the spirit of the event and everyone made an effort.
It was a really special event (one that Ludacris showed up to, check out my instagram!) and I’m definitely on board for next year, in fact I can’t wait.
Learn more about Handmade Events and their Pop-Up Dinners here. The next one is in San Diego in September!

I survived eight days in Las Vegas.
Just. I actually had an amazing time. The Stylesmith team headed out there for the Downtown Project/Stitch Factory speaker series and spent just under a week in Downtown Las Vegas making new friends and experiencing the community they are building down there (more on that later) then, three new tattoos later, we moved to the Strip to manage press and blogger appointments for our clients as well as cover the show for another.
“Tiffany’s” (inside White Cross Drugs, on Oakey at Las Vegas Blvd)
After eight days though, we were more than ready to get back to Los Angeles, but not before stopping at two of my favourite Las Vegas gems. The breakfast at Tiffany’s Café in White Cross Drugs (yes, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”) is nothing fancy. It’s your standard breakfast – but it’s good, and if you know me, you know I love nothing more than an old breakfast joint – especially those with a counter, middle aged waitresses and old men grabbing their coffee and a slice of pie.
I literally seek these places out. Maybe I’ll write a book one day.
Across the street also on Oakey, tucked behind the gas station, is Luv-It Frozen Custard. It is the best thing to do in Vegas, hands down. Hugh Hefner agrees with me as does the woman from Henderson who had driven out to pick up her apparently weekly 16 quarts of the stuff.
It’s been in the same location since 1973 and they make their frozen custard daily. I’m partial to the Scotch Jimmie sundae as evidenced above. But it’s all good. So good.
Catch you later LV.
What I’m Wearing: Shorts: Victoria’s Secret (the best high waist cut off evah), Top: ASOS, Chucks, New Look Backpack via ASOS.
