Get Ready With Me | Katy Perry Prismatic Tour

Katy Perry's songs are so damn catchy, so when Proactiv invited me to come see her Prismatic Tour in Los Angeles, I jumped at the opportunity! I brought along my best friend Bianca to the show and she was so excited. This girl literally couldn't wait all week long for the show.

I filmed a little get ready with me video before we made our way to staples center then vlogged  a little from the show. If you need a list of products, I'll link them below.

My outfit some of the items were old but the ones currently available are the olive bomber jacket from Forever21, and the necklace I also got from there. My pants are tan leather from Intermix by J Brand, along with Zara booties that are no longer in stores and a Mink Pink cropped white sweater.

Thanks again to Proactiv for inviting me to the show! They gave me a huge and amazing bag of products so I'll try them out for you and let you know what I think.

It was over 100 degrees in Los Angeles this week, but that didn't stop me from wearing pants. My best friend had on these incredible pants during NYFW and I asked where she got them .... FOREVER21 can you believe it?! They look so expensive. I immediately ordered them online and had to wear them as soon as I got them in the mail.

 

Bob and Balayage

Well, I suppose it was time for a change. I chopped my hair. OH. MY. GOD. I mean really, it was a spur of the moment decision. I had loved Christine Centenera's hair for so long but I kind of have a big head and a round face so I was afraid to do it. But the lob or long bob or whatever you want to call my hair cut, was worth the risk.

I made an appointment with Gaetano at Jonathan and George to chop off my hair. When I walked in and told him my vision, he immediately agreed and if he didn't ... he isn't afraid to be completely honest with me. So we decided to cut off my "housewife" hair and go for something a little more modern and effortless.

I combined this hair cut vlog with a long overdo hair color video I filmed at Nine Zero One in West Hollywood with Tauni.

So there you have it, what do you think??

Classic Combos

What is more classic than denim and a white tee? This combo has been a fashion staple for decades and no matter the styles or brands, it just seems to always go together. When I go to grab a white tank or tee, LNA Clothing is the brand I gravitate towards. I started buying their tees in 2009 and have been a fan of the brand ever since. The tees are easy to wear, with a relaxed fit in quality fabrics.

With my LNA Tank, I paired it with a pair of denim from RE/DUN. The concept behind their design is really cool, they are vintage denim that have been taken apart, recut, and resewn with up to date patterns. So you can get the vintage Levi's feel without the mom fit. Pretty cool if you ask me.

I also wore CC Skye bangles, Anine Bing glasses and Alexander Wang heels to complete the look.

 

What To Do in LA: Breakfast

best breakfast in los angeles la lalamer marianna hewitt blog

I get a lot of requests about doing my favorite places in Los Angeles, especially if you recently moved here or are coming for a visit. I'll start this What To Do in LA series with the first meal of the day, breakfast!

Breakfast and brunch, on the weekends, is quite the social thing to do in the city. You can make this into an all day affair so here are my favs

TOAST

Toast is one of the first places I started going to when I moved to LA. It is on 3rd Street and is pretty trendy. On the weekends, expect a long line. The food is fine just like any other breakfast, but there is a good crowd, its is pretty in expensive and there is a lot of outside seating area. One tip would be if ordering fruit with your breakfast, ask for no melon. You can also head here for lunch. Good for a scene, decent food.

QUALITY

This is down the street from Toast and has a great menu. Any of the biscuits at Quality are delicious. I only go here for breakfast, not for lunch or dinner.  I always get the avocado benedict. Good food, family scene, dog friendly, outside seating.

JOAN'S ON THIRD

This is one of my favorite places in Los Angeles hands down. I come here often for late breakfast or for lunch. There are cases you can order from or choose from any items on the menu. The bakery has some yummy treats to choose from to that you can see along with cupcakes and cakes and everything sweet you can think of. If you are going for breakfast,  get the Bonne Femme Omelet. For lunch you can't go wrong with the cheese plate, butter lettuce salad or the short rib sandwich. Good for lunch, dinner, popular scene, lots of outdoor seating. 

LE PAIN QUOTIDIEN

I am not the biggest fan of the food here, I'm going to be honest. But the place is always packed and there are so many locations that if you do come across one it will be a nice lunch. I like either the Melrose or Larchmont location. If i go to Melrose, it is because Urth was too crowded. If I go to Larchmont, it is probably because I just got done with the Sunday Morning Farmer's Market. Ok food, healthy, outdoor seating, good crowd.

GRIDDLE CAFE

What can I say about The Griddle Cafe. Hmm, well it is great if you love giant sized pancakes, smelling like food, and waiting in long lines. It is a nice place to try once, but other than that I wouldn't go back. The kitchen is in the middle of the restaurant so you kind of stink like food when you leave. I do recommend the oreo pancake, one is enough and for sure to share. Try it once, don't go back.

ROSCOE'S HOUSE OF CHICKEN AND WAFFLES

I mean, does Roscoe's even need an explanation? Get chicken, waffles, scrambled eggs, greens, mac and cheese and a Lisa's delight. So. Damn. Good. Go there, it isn't just for tourists.

SOHO HOUSE

I love coming to Soho House for Sunday brunch. You do need to go with someone who has a membership if you don't have one, but it is delicious and beautiful.  Beautiful view, need membership.

NATE 'N AL OF BEVERLY HILLS

If a traditional Beverly Hills Jewish deli is where you want to go eat, head here. It is PACKED on the weekends and it is traditional, but I love to go here.

REPUBLIQUE

This place is delllllicious!!!! You must try the bacon steak, it is a thick piece of bacon that is really sweet and one piece is enough the share. I love the natural light here and the detailed floors. I like to eat here during the week for breakfast because it is quiet. Must try the bacon steak, make sure to get a reservation. 

These were my choices for best breakfast in Los Angeles. I'll keep coming back and updating this post. Check back soon for my favorite lunch places and leave a comment if you want to know anything else about my guide to LA.
