H O M E: Living and Dining in LA

HOME (Los Feliz location) is where you wet your whistle and chat, on a warm Los Angeles summer night.

While HOME is a restaurant, I am more likely to return for the ambiance and cocktails, instead of eats.

Attempting to make up for the poor food choice I made earlier in the day, I ordered the Warm Spinach Salad. If HOME’s goal is to serve a dish as the average person would at home for a chill night out by the pool, then call it a success. The presentation is subpar and the salad fell short at titillating my taste buds.

On the other hand, the atmosphere and service are terrific. Did I mention that Happy Hour drinks are five bucks and are not watered down? Worth it!

As for the Chicken Pomodoro Sandwich and soup, my friend date says, “The sandwich was quite savory, the cheese added a great kick to it. Soup was bland, but ok. I’ve had better. Oh! The fried pickles were my fav!”

Check out the pictures below. Feel free to ask questions. xoxo

MegaGrowth & Ebony.com Host Poolside Beauty Chat

Growing up, my definition of beauty was heavily influenced by media standards. I failed to embrace the differences that make us unique. My ignorance helped to create a perception that dictated my behavior and interactions.

Today, I am proud to celebrate images and attributes that I found embarrassing and/or bashed. Embracing my own natural beauty has changed my perspective and is one of the best choices I have ever made.

Honored to be part of this amazing movement, I love opportunities to connect with other amazing women redefining beauty.

On Thursday night, natural hair and beauty bloggers/editors gathered at the upscale Sofitel Los Angeles for a beauty chat hosted by MegaGrowth and Ebony.com. I had a blast chatting about hair care, makeup, fitness and philanthropy with those in attendance.

Guests enjoyed delicious gourmet hors d’ oeuvres, complimentary drinks and received MegaGrowth swags bags. The summer inspired beach totes included three full-sized products that smell yummy. Look out for a review.

Check out MegaGrowth.com for product details.
