These are a few of my favorite things…
Newbark Shoes and Bags
"Chanel Vintage anything and everything."
Broome Street General Store
"My cousin’s shop, Broome Street, has the best coffee, pastries, salads, housewares and clothing in town. Plus, old-timey toys!"
Hollywood Farmers Market
"The best fresh organic produce, flowers, international foods and kids’ face-painters in the world."
"My husband Ali got me hooked on this amazingly durable yet delicate tableware."
"This is my first stop whenever I get back home to L.A. A spa full of women walking around naked, combined with getting pummeled by some pretty energetic masseuses, makes this Koreatown spa an instant shot of sisterhood."
Roasted Seaweed Snacks
"My husband, my older daughter and pretty much everyone else I know carries a dozen packs of these yummy, nutritious snacks around everywhere they go."
"Ali has become quite the old school sommelier, and I guess it’s rubbing off on me, because I’m becoming quite the wine snob. Luckily, there’s a fabulous little wine shop close by."
"Every couple of years I think about getting a snazzy sports car or a jazzy minivan, if such a thing exists. But then I remember how good it feels to me to go to sleep at night knowing I used such a tiny bit of fossil fuels to get where I needed to go."
My Daughters’ Smiles
"Nothing makes me happier or more grateful than a glimpse of my daughters’ smiling faces."
