This witty card and many more can be found at

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I am heading back to my east coast roots, DC. I am curious to see if the energy of the city has a different (and better) sense now that now CHANGE around the corner....

If you are hungry after all those shoe bargains at Marc Jacobs. Head over to FROMA for something to delish eat or drink. And stay away from the amazing dessert of sliced pear, candied pecans, caramel and formage blanc. Damn you GH for ordering that again!

(This post should probably be after the mj post and not before but oh well...)

MJ - 70%

If you happen to live in LA, I would highly recommend you visit the Marc Jacobs shop on Melrose or in Melrose Heights. However you want to look at it. ALL the shoes and boots are 70% off; lots of styles and sizes.

HSBC Bank in Australia made their receipts fun and interactive,also gaining buzz, by printing diagrams on the back of each that instructed how to transform into origami.
Each design touted a relevant service: an origami house design promoted home loans, a pig for savings accounts, a handbag for credit card services, and a mouse for online banking. Not only an innovative concept, but they also speak to the trend of consumers looking to make the most of paper goods that would otherwise end up in the trash.

Cage Free Rescue

When, I travel my dog goes to sleep away camp at Cage Free K-9. He loves it, comes back exhausted and sleeps for a good day or so straight! They also have dog rescue and today this email came in. With these terrible photos! Who could ever pour battery acid on a dog.

We'd like to introduce you to Newton. He is an adorable one and a half year old neutered male Terrier mix. He's a spunky, friendly little fellow who only asks for kindness and love to make the rest of his life truly happy and fulfilled! Someone with very cruel intentions purposefully poured battery acid on Newton's back, causing a severe chemical burn injury to a large portion of his skin. After undergoing extensive medical treatment, Newton's wounds are healing nicely. He is now on the mend, both physically and emotionally.

Returning from Malibu

When I woke up the sky was overcast and grey from smoke and there was ash on my car. So, I took the dog and headed up to into the hills/canyons of Malibu yesterday. Hoping the air quality would be better. It was!
Driving back on the PCH, I came across these two new BWM Diesel SUV's out for testing. The pics sux because I it was on the fly. I want a job where I get to drive test Beamers on the PCH for the weekend. Unfortunately, I never connected with them at a light to ask for application. Bummer....

This is a shot of the police helicopter circling the party I attended Saturday. That is, until the police broke it up. With 3 fires in the greater LA area doesn't anybody think this chopper's time could have been better spent elsewhere???

Oro Blanco Grapefruit

I try and make a point of hitting the Venice Farmers Market every Friday. There really is no excuse, its spitting distance and the quality and PRICES can't be beat. YES, even cheaper than Trader Joe's where I shop regularly. And no annoying plastic boxes holding your produce.

I love when I am introduced to a new fruit or that would be the oro blanco grapefruit. This baby is delicious and this coming from someone who doesn't typically like grapefruit. The taste is a complete departure from a typical GF, the Oro Blanco sweet and light.
I think the name translated might even be White Gold...;o)

Highly recommended!

TGIF. Have a good weekend

More chocolate

Chocolate makes me feel good and now more than ever! Whenever I buy and promptly EAT the Theo /Jane Goodall Bar a portion of the money goes to cocoa farmers, promote conservation in the tropical rainforest and directly contribute to the Jane Goodall Institute’s efforts to save chimpanzees, develop community centered conservation efforts and direct youth education programs around the world.

Yum yum!

Beyond Yoga

I was planning to blog about my great coat from Jodi Guber of Beyond Yoga. I picked this jacket up years ago and it hasn't let me down. Its soft sweatshirt material, 3/4 length with a built in scarf. Perfect for Westside chilly nights like last night. BUT I can't find a photo...Jodi has a great collection, in addition to the jacket I have some pants and tops. To see it all click here

No website as of yet and I haven't personally visited the store in NYC but the photos are gorg. My friend had some at his pad and generously gave it to me last weekend on my visit. The skin cream is like the best citrus mousse you've ever used. Check it for
