Heat Wave!

We’re in the middle of a heat wave here in L.A., and I’m certain it will last well past the time that I can stand it. I’m already trying to figure out where we can escape in October when I’m dying for fall weather. This weekend we’ve just stayed close to home to try and get back on Pacific time.

Here are some things I’ve been up to and some interesting links around the web.

We went to see Ingrid Goes West on Friday night and ohhh man…it is super smart, funny and maybe a little too close to home.

I binged The Girlfriend Experience on our flight back from London, and while it’s super racy and definitely rated a hard R, I became infatuated with Riley Keough, who I didn’t even realize is Lisa Marie Pressley’s daughter. I also happened to see her at breakfast yesterday, which I took as a sign we should be bffs. She has a new film out now called Logan Lucky that takes place around the Charlotte Motor Speedway, so that’s probably a little more your speed (pun intended).

I went to the Sugar Paper warehouse sale on Saturday that started at 9 a.m. and there were already more than 100 people waiting to get in. Glad I didn’t wait, because now you can shop the same sale online.

Speaking of stationery, I never really paid attention to Smythson’s stationary until a few years ago when I discovered their London collection. Though I had already maxed out on travel souvenirs this trip, you can order online. These are on my Christmas list!

I try to cook as much as possible during the week and reserve the weekends for trying new restaurants, but we have been eating out so much lately that we decided to stay home on a Saturday night and make the bruschetta from Julie & Julie. It’s definitely as good as it looks in the movie!

I always love reading the Bon Appetit that names the 10 Best New Restaurants in America. Though I was bummed none are in L.A., the new list is out here.

Speaking of restaurants, Eater LA did a feature recently on the most anticipated new fall restaurants in L.A. WOW! I’ve had my eye set on the Nomad hotel opening downtown (it’s my favorite New York hotel), but I had no idea we were getting a Momofuku called North Spring and a restaurant from April Bloomfield called The Hearth & Hound. It’s going to be a delicious fall!

    I still have a lot of the bespoke stationary I ordered from Smythson in the early 90s, since I paid a bloody fortune for it (even back then it was hundreds of dollars) and was anxious to make it last as long as humanly possible. Unfortunately it has my mom’s old address on it, which is where I lived at the time. I still use it sometimes because I still love it just as much. Before I stopped buying leather, I’d always get a souvenir at Smythson each time I was in London, their pink London A to Z with gilt-edged pages being my special favorite (those guides were indispensable before the GPS era). I still have their address book in my purse at all times, and their pink passport cover that I use when traveling. And just last week I ordered some thank-you cards from them!

  2. It was in the 60’s this morning in NC. , but I’m sure will have some more hot weather here. Summer’s not over yet.
