Levitated mass at the LACMA Museum

September 25, 2012 § 1 Comment

Michael Heizer’s artwork is a 340-ton boulder that traveled from a quarry in Riverside to the Wilshire Boulevard museum.

I’ve never seen something quite like it…I didn’t feel completely safe standing below it (more of a 1 millisecond dash from one side to the other)…Notheless quite an impressive work to see in front you!

Palihotel Melrose Review – LA

May 2, 2012 § 1 Comment

Now this is a super cool new boutique hotel which opened just two months ago and you can tell as there is still a scent of paint lingering in the air!!
The hotel is in West Hollywood on the corner of Melrose and North Hayworth Avenue in a nice trendsetting neighborhood filled with interesting venues and a short car ride to Rodeo Drive, the
Grove, Beverly Center and Sunset Strip. and  The hotel does have a motel vibe about it, it has only 32 fun and contemporary  rooms.
The Palikitchen, the hotel’s coffee shop only serves breakfast at the moment but is due to serve lunch and dinner by the month of May.
What I liked about this place is it’s decor, there is a particular care for detail… Bookshelves with old books are scattered around the hotel in common areas and in the bedrooms, Old photographs in pretty frames on bookshelves and vintage paintings of pretty ladies and elegant gentlemen. The predominant  color palette is dark greens and mustard combined with greys  and blues. I liked it, you shall too!!


San Ysidro Ranch – Montecito

April 21, 2012 § Leave a comment

I have travelled a lot and in all ways but if you want to consider THE most romantic stay of your lifetime well than do not hesitate and book a cottage with your sweetheart in what Travel&Leisure and Fodor’s Guide consider the #1 top resort in the United States! It’s nestled in Montecito a few minutes away from the coastal town of Santa Barbara,Ca.
From the moment you get there you feel in a long lost era. The rooms are beautifully decorated in a mix of English county style, we felt that ours had a “visiting aunt Mabel” look about it, it was quaint and so romantic with a little outdoor patio in which we had breakfast.
We had two memorable dinners, both ended with a chocolate soufflé the first night, and a citrus soufflé on our second evening there. Yes it’s expensive, yes it’s for a one in a time experience but if you do, you won’t regret it!

Remember this is Milly the mom writing so I guess you do understand that it’s not a hip trendy hotel with a young crowd, the only young people are newlyweds that are obviously honeymooning!!! Enjoy!
