Merci | Paris

A trip to Paris is not complete until you have visited the Merci store. Filled with beautiful clothes, home goods, and a cafe, located in the Marais District.  Visit their site here.


Hotel Bourg Tibourg | Paris

While in Paris, we stayed at the Hotel Bourg Tibourg.  This hotel was so intimate and charming with only 2 rooms per floor.  And step out the door and you are in the middle of the Marais district with its great restaurants, boutiques, and galleries at your feet.  Love this neighborhood.  You can check their website here.


L'Ami Jean | Paris

I had heard so much about the Paris restaurant L'Ami Jean and oh what a night!  The food was amazing, from the famous Parmesan soup, to the Risotto, and for my main, the grilled Skate. And Stephane himself?  What a great talent.  Thanks for making our night so fun.


Pueblo | Costa Mesa at SOCO

   Last week I shot the Spanish tapas restaurant Pueblo.  And what a little gem of a restaurant this is, located at SOCO, the South Coast Collection of design showrooms and restaurants.  I love the ambiance of this space.  And the food, well, what can I say.  Everything that Chef Michael Campbell prepared was so fresh and tasty.  I felt like I was back in Barcelona.  The dishes in the images above are the Piquillo Relleno, Croquetas de Paella, and the Salmon Ahumado.  I'd suggest a trip over there right away!


elizabeth & prince | old town la quinta

I shot the very chic elizabeth & prince store in Old Town La Quinta.  This resort lifestyle boutique is the creation of Analisa and Shawn Holoubek.  Analisa and Shawn named their store after the New York City neighborhood they once made their home.  This gem of a store should be on everyones must do list when visiting the desert.  It's already on mine.   Check out their website here.
