Ooooh, I love an indulgent staycation, and I love La Peer Hotel. Something about just getting away – even for only 24 hours – goes a long way toward recharging my batteries and adding a little bit of glam back into my (double vax) life. I am starting to feel like myself again. The highlights included:
Pooltime: Against the backdrop of a newly-created James Peter Henry mural we lazed by the pool and sipped on cocktails.
Wine Hour: The art-filled courtyard, anchored by James’ residency in The Drawing Room, lends itself to the perfect place to catch up with old friends and make new ones. While we debated whether or not to make a rezzie at Olivetta, we decided to keep it casual and delicious with the GBK taco bar.
The Bed: OK, just take a look at my face in the photo above. ‘Nuff said.
The Vibe: As you may remember from this interview with Nick Rimedio, it has always been his vision to curate a salon-eque vibe of creatives, travelers and tastemakers. If Thursday night’s al fresco crowd was any indication, he appears to have done just that.
NEW ON THE SCENE
Sneak Peek: Pendry West Hollywood. Ooh this hotel is so good. We were treated to an Insider Tour four days before the hotel offiically opened and it is beautiful. From the art, to the Wolfgang Puck restaurants, to The Britely, Bar Pendry and more – this property is definitely a must-see. Stay tuned for our future chat with David, the GM.
Brunch: Summer Social Club. Tom invited us to their brunch that launched last weekend and I have found my favorite Avocado Toast in all of LA. Big statement, I know. Huge. With contactless ordering from Mr. Yum, and my beloved Amelia cocktail – it’s the perfect way to celebrate this beautiful weather with loved ones.
ADD TO YOUR LIST
INTERVIEW: ARTIST JAMES PETER HENRY
It’s fascinating to peek inside the mind of an artist – and watching James at work is a treat. Take a listen as he talks about his process, inspiration and NFT’s. While I still can’t quite wrap my mind around the whole NFT thing – it was exciting watching a very cool project coming together last Monday. Follow his Insta for that drop. In the meantime, meet James now.
Thanks for stopping by, and shoot me a DM if you would like to work with me.
