there is so much to see and do in los angeles. i’ve lived here for 8 years and i still have places on my list that i need to visit. i took my team to the piñata district last friday. it’s pretty much as crazy as it sounds. rows of shops filled with piñatas hanging from the ceiling, aisles filled with colorful candy and loud party music.
there are a lot of not so great options, but you can definitely pick through the selection to find the gems. we got two fruits for $10 and $13.
i hear they also do custom piñatas as well!
i also really loved the colorful sticks that they had to break open the piñatas with. we left with the watermelon and pineapple, but there are TONS of options for a kid’s birthday party…and a few alcohol themed pinatas for adults too…
los angeles, you are wild and i love you! go to the piñata district here!

i got back from my trip last week and have been gathering the photos to share because i TRULY loved the south of france and highly recommend you go there! i went with 6 other friends and 4 little kiddos. we used raileurope to take the train from paris to avignon (takes about 3 hours) and then rented a car and drove an hour to gordes. i had never been to the south of france, so it was a wonderful new experience.

I’m in a pool mood mode right now so it seems these pics are a perfect fit. I love the mix of pool blue and yellow combined with natural greens and a touch of vibrant hues. Hope we all find some time for pool lounging soon! -stephanie

while in paris out with some friends, i met katie, a photographer from australia who lives in paris. we really hit it off and she was kind enough to take me around to see a few spots i’d never seen a couple of days later…
we met and had mint tea and pastries at the café de la mosquée de paris, which is a beautiful north african cafe. mosaic tiles, birds fluttering around in the trees…a cute little spot for sure.
we walked through the jardin des plantes to see the roses and then ended up on the most colorful street i’ve seen in paris. each house with it’s own unique pastel color & doorstep decor. it was a happy day.
wishing you a happy weekend! i have my social media workshop tomorrow and then a backyard BBQ with friends. i’ve been on a sort-of-detox since my trip (no alcohol, gluten, sugar or dairy) which is pretty difficult but i’m feeling a lot better. jetlag, dehydration, and two weeks of indulgence can really catch up with ya. maybe i’ll splurge and have a margarita at the BBQ, we’ll see. have a good one! -bri
