L.A. Gem: The Little Door



L.A. has some of the best restaurants and some have been around quite a long time and become L.A. Gems.  Well, the husband and I finally made it to The Little Door for our 8th Anniversary.  Yep, 8 years and we are still having fun enjoying and exploring L.A.  The Little Door definitely did not disappoint.  Truly a gem! Amazing food and a cozy ambiance.  Not only do you feel like you are in some Mid-Summer Nights Dream hidden garden, but the staff goes above and beyond to make you feel at home.  Since it was our anniversary, they made us feel extra special.  Compliments of the chef, they gave us a glass of champagne to start.  We ordered Moroccan Carrot soup, Burrata with Prosciutto and Peaches, Roast chicken with a Quinoa cake, and the Lamb with kale and lentils and potato puree.   For dessert, we had Chocolate Molten cake and Chocolate Pot de Creme.   It was divine!  So much flavor and we ate every bite.  If you are ever in L.A., splurge a bit and check out this little gem.

Some photos from the evening…

Corinne Bailey Rae is back and at her best! She’s been to the moon, had a little green aphrodisiac, and pushing on for the dawn. The Heart Speaks in Whispers is her latest effort, a collaborative effort with she and her husband-he’s a producer. It’s an album (can I still say that) filled with loads of strings, rich vibes, and lots of love; it’s oozing with love and lots of heart felt soul! See for yourself. . . She talks about her journey to find love again after enduring a tragic loss. It’s a refreshing piece of excellence!! Oh, and I’ll have that gold jumpsuit, thank you!

Meet Sophie!




Isn’t she just delightful, simple, and chic?  I know some folks are not a fan of the conservative block heel aka The Lady shoe or The Garden heel, but if paired with the right outfit…it’s golden! Trust me!  For Spring/Summer, this sandal by Maryam Nassir Zadeh is everything!  It can take you from work to cocktails and beyond.  A sure bet for a garden wedding!  A bit pricey, but I’m sure a sale is in it’s future.  I’ve got my eye out and if not, I might just treat myself.  I deserve it!  My anniversary and birthday are in the near future, and I would look lovely in these.  Meanwhile, if you don’t want to splurge, go budget-friendly.

Here are some of my favorites on a budget…

mod cloth, river island, steve madden, h&m, top shop, accessorize

Oh, and check out another cute lady sandal for the Summer…Lovely, isn’t it?  I’m all about the comfy chic lady sandal for the upcoming season.

Are you feeling The Sophie?
