MUSINGS #3

it’s back in the 90’s this week in southern california, i enjoyed the fall weather while it lasted and will welcome it back with open arms next week. in honor of the heat, i’m including images of all the coats we can’t wear right now. so many cool oversized jacket looks right now! bri is out of town on her honeymoon road trip which has been fun to follow on instagram. road trips take so much work to plan as there are so many stops so i’m excited to see it all happen first hand. her stop in Antelope Valley looked insane! it has been almost a year since bri and i started cooking school. i was looking through recipes from our classes last night and realized how much i miss the ritual of going every week and spending hours chopping, mixing, tasting  and plating. i’m making clam chowder tonight with the recipe from class. if it turns out well, i’ll share it next week! – joanie

• i finally landed a pair of the glove booties from everlane as an early birthday gift from my mother-in-law. i went with the bone color despite my better judgement that they’ll probably get dirty really quickly. they are super comfortable and flattering and i already want them in black. they fit true to size

• speaking of jackets and coats, uniqlo has some great reasonable priced options. i own this knee length fleece coat which i love.  the shorter version with the belt is also very chic. i have a coat very similar to this one from Vince that i get tons of compliments on, the clean lines and simple closure are ideal and it’s $90. i also really love how many colors this $80 cocoon down jacket comes in, buy it in bright pink and make people on the street happy with your pop of color this winter!

• i’m headed to Rosemary Beach Florida in a couple of weeks for my birthday. i’ve never been so if you have suggestions on what to do, where to eat, drink, i’d love to know so please share!

• i’ve made two different versions of m&m cookies over the last week. my favorite still remains, the monster cookie. recipe below. this recipe (by my mom!) makes 36 cookies, i bake them all and freeze some. have cookies stashed in your freezer is a pro-move. i think monster cookies may be a midwestern thing? because i’ve mentioned it out here in california and no one knows what i’m talking about.

monster cookies
makes: 36 cookies

• 1 stick of butter at room temp
• 1 cup brown sugar, packed
• 1 cup white sugar
• 3 eggs at room temp
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 2 teaspoons baking soda
• 1 cup peanut butter (i used skippy, creamy!)
• 4 1/2 cups quick oats
• 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
• 1/4 pound M&M candies

directions: cream the butter and sugars together until smooth and creamy (about 5 minutes). beat in one egg at a time, stir in vanilla, add baking soda and mix well. stir in peanut butter, oats, chocolate chips and finally M&Ms. i make the whole thing in my kitchen aid and just run it on low for the stirring parts. bake at 350 for 12ish minutes. you want the tops and corners to have a hint of brown.

• have you watched “Working Moms” on netflix? i don’t like many tv shows but i really liked this one.

• did you see our fall reading list post? i love book recommendations so this was fun to put together. i’m almost done with “Maybe You Should Talk to Someone” and i’m really liking it. it’s honest and funny and relatable.

• i also made a post of some j.crew favorites, and learned a hack from my cousin that sometimes you can stack discount codes, so when they are having 40% off site wide you can also add “theskimm” on top for 20% off additionally. i tried it, it works!

• my favorite podcast is ear hustle. it’s created inside the San Quentin prison, the stories are beautiful. i listened to this episode yesterday and was crying on the way home from the dentist. it’s really well done and i think humanizing prisons is really important.

• stocked up on seasonal candles from pf candle co which is one of my favorites. their seasonal scents sell out fast so order early. code “rekindledflame” gets you 20% off too.

IMG_4373-1

as i said before, we stayed in meguro at the claska hotel. this was my favorite suite there…the beautiful retro minimal decor was so lovely. and the whole room was in the same warm tones which i really appreciated. above you will see jen performing sia’s “chandelier” for my snapchat haha. also, that’s the traditional breakfast they offer in the lobby which i liked (but they also have american style food if you wanted to switch it up)

after we got home from kyoto it was nice to come back here, relax and then go out for a nice meal. we had dinner at seriously the best sushi i’ve had in my life. it was just the four of us and the chef made each bite special. natalie even cried when he was cutting the cucumber because it truly was like watching art. it was probably top 3 meals of my life. the sushi was like butter and the care that went into the food was truly moving. you’ve seen this doc, right? similar experience to that.

one of my favorite places visually was yukamo suryo. it’s out of the way some, but it was so gorgeous. we made a reservation early in the week and had breakfast there our last full day. it really gave me the same feelings i had when visiting coqui coqui in tulum (see here) it felt tranquil, well thought out, chic, and fancy but not over the top. i think the meal was about $30 and that paid for about a 1.5 hour intimate breakfast experience of different teas and traditional food and dessert. i loved the details in the space the most. the bathroom sink was even amazing.

ABOUT TOWN | OUTDOOR DINING

outdoor dining | designlovefest

LA has beautiful weather and an amazing food scene so combine those two and you get outdoor dining! here are a few of our favorite places around town to grab a drink or a bite.

El Chavo: recently under new ownership they have happy hour every night from 5- 8pm. order in the bar and grab a seat on their large back patio. a fun place to meet up with friends, or go on a first date when you don’t want a place to be too quiet or too loud.

L&E Oysters: a neighborhood favorite, it’s nice to grab an outdoor seat and watch people pass by. rose and oysters!
