THE BEST NEW RESTAURANTS IN LA

    Nothing “sparks joy” in my life quite like dining at a – really f*cking awesome and downright delicious – *new* restaurant in LA. And then sharing the bounties of my discoveries with my best friends of course! It’s a full-time job trying to keep up with the dining scene in LA. But know...

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO SANTA YNEZ VALLEY

The Santa Ynez Valley is without a doubt one of my favorite places in all of California. With how often I find myself in “The SYV,” at this point, I fully consider myself an “honorary resident.” Someday in the future, I’d like to think I’ll make it official, but until then, it’ll always be my...

The time had come to finally take Wine Country Caroline out of California to discover some new wine-filled frontiers.

Call me a fan, call me a connoisseur, heck you can even call me a wino – who cares! The girl loves fermented grapes of...

The Best Coffee Shops in LA

I’ll just say it…I freaking love coffee. From iced lattes to classic cappuccinos, I can’t get enough. However, I also love the ambiance and environment that local coffee shops provide. Whether you’re looking to buckle down and do some work or you simply want a quiet and quaint place to sip some great brew and...

THE BEST BRUNCH SPOTS IN LA

I may be biased but no one does brunch quite like Los Angeles. You can have mimosas and pancakes anywhere, but in LA, I swear everything just tastes better. I dont know if it’s the year-round sunshine, the euphoric crowd, the killer cocktails, or the wildly creative brunch dishes… but whatever it is, there’s simply...

THE GETAWAY GUIDE TO: LOS ALAMOS

Whether you’re headed full speed ahead for “Lost Almost”, “Little Los Angeles”, or more accurately, Los Alamos, know that no matter what good things await. Located just 2 hours north of Los Angeles, Los Alamos is a funky little legitimately old western town that has become quite the little destination over the past few years...
