I have always wanted to stay at the gorgeous L’Auberge in Napa. I mean take a look and you will see what i mean. I can picture it now, wearing some fabulous jean trousers, a flowy top, looking out over my balcony at this stunning view, sipping some of the most amazing cabernet in the land! Yes and yes!

I have to admit when I travel the highlight of my trip is typically what I eat, the hidden restaurants I find, and immersing myself in the food of the locale. So when I discovered a few hidden gems in my own backyard you have to excuse my elation. I mean finding a killer organic juice bar and a super cool breakfast spot all within one weekend, well it almost felt as if I was on vacation!! Below are a few of these hidden gems in the Laguna area. If you go to Break of Dawn, be sure to order the “bacon” and eggs. The bacon is really pork belly and the eggs are tempura poached eggs! How do they do that!? See photo below to see what I mean. For lunch or a fabulous dinner Driftwood kitchen is my favorite spot. It’s just above the more popular The Deck, so it has the same great killer ocean views, but with less people, and a more sophisticated menu. Be sure to order the oysters and the lobster cabonara. Lastly is Thrive Juice Lab, a real deal organic, GMO free juice bar. They have fabulous smoothies and a fun kids smoothie list. The Stimulator, which is basically a coffee smoothie is fantastic. And the acai bowls are great too!

Today’s wish I was post is really the full package. Imagine a gorgeous resort located in St Kitts on an organic farm where you can enjoy farm to table to your hearts content! Belmont Farm is that place. I imagine myself sipping cold pressed juice cocktails in the most perfect coverup from Shopbop and fab crochet bikini from Calypso St Barth. Sigh….
This was one of those made up recipes that turned out so super good, and the entire family enjoyed them. Win! We are still eating our meals 75% of the time as “build your own” style since this seems to be the best way to get Piper to eat AND enjoy her dinner. The sweetness of the maple syrup glaze balanced out with the garlic and the saltiness of the proscuitto is a great combination! Truth be told I overcooked the eggs by just a minute so they weren’t really runny. But if you have that runny yolk, it really makes for a silky smooth sauce.
Just in case you all needed a reminder, it’s Mother’s day this weekend! Here are a few gift ideas I had for you. From practical to spoiling here are some special gifts for that special woman in your life. Starting with Emily Ley’s Home Base Binder, this is the ultimate practical but still super cool gift.

This is a collab worth checking out. First of all if you are not familiar with the amazing heirloom quality ring boxes from Mrs. Box, well you should be. They are absolutely stunning and are not only for engagement rings (although perfect for that of course) but also take any ring gift to the next level. The amazing Anne Robin, created a custom monogram set to help personalize your Mrs. Box and let’s just say we are smitten. Choose from 26 limited edition custom colors of velvet, and voila, an heirloom to hold your heirloom.
I keep sitting down to write this and it’s simply impossible to find the right words. We have lost such a magical, beautiful, inspiring person. I felt it only appropriate to share images of one of my favorite shoots Tori did. Unicorns, sparkles and glitter. This is how I will remember her. She touched so many lives, my heart breaks for those she leaves behind including her two beautiful children and loving husband. To read her story and give to her family go here. #fortori #helpingthehendrixs
