This post was sponsored by Benihana. All opinions expressed are my own. If there’s one place I absolutely love going  for dinner, it’s Benihana. Not only because the food is delicious, but also because it’s always been such a fun family experience. I would actually eat there every single day if I could just for […]

So when they invited us to their Camp Sunset party in Malibu, to launch their book, we were ecstatic! I wanted to share the photos my friend Sarah […]

My fave […]

I’ve watched Willy Wonka more times than I would like to tell you and my childhood dream was to be a chocolatier… not surprising, right? In my early twenties, I actually thought about going to school to learn everything chocolate, then flying to South America to source out my own beans and starting my business…. […]

We have been long time fans of Jeni’s over here at Sugar and Charm, stopping in for scoops in Charleston (see that in our video!) and most recently Chicago. So when we heard Jeni was opening up shop in Los Feliz, we might have busted out our happy dance of pure joy! Jeni’s is the real deal. […]

A few weeks ago, Zan and I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon (alone, which rarely happens) in Santa Monica. We decided to take advantage of our beautiful city and go somewhere we normally don’t, the Santa Monica Pier! We ate at the newly renovated and revamped seafood restaurant The Albright, formerly SM Pier […]

I’m very excited to share ‘Lette Macarons on Sugar and Charm today! I was thrilled when they invited us to check out their gorgeous boutique in the Larchmont Village area of LA. The all-white interior is beautiful and I adore how the cookies add pops of color throughout the shop! I was honestly very curious if […]

Zan and I spent the day exploring colorful Venice, California. Itʼs an artsy town with an abundance of chic cafes, diverse shops and quirky architecture. From the historic manmade Canals to the lively circus-like boardwalk, there is no shortage of interesting things to see in Venice. Comfy and chic in my Boden “Boho” boots, I was […]

Yup, that’s right… we went to a drive-in and it was awesome! Okay, the sound was a little staticky and it was in the middle of an industrial parking lot, but hey I’m down if this is all we have left of the drive-in era. I actually grew up going to a drive-in theater because […]

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and Easter! On Saturday Zan and I headed to the Renaissance Fair to check out the shows, food and “renaissance people” walking around. It was actually pretty amusing and intriguing to see people dressed in costume, spinning yarn and hammering metal. They take it very seriously too… talking […]
