It’s almost Thanksgiving!!! I typically do Black Friday and Small Business Saturday posts, but I thought this year I’d share some Thanksgiving inspo and recipe ideas. I really enjoy cooking and baking and luckily my whole family is pretty darn good at both too so we’re spoiled. Here’s some recipes I’ve made in the past and recommend and a vlog of last years celebration along with the song from SNL my sister and brother-in-law love to torture me with by singing it to me on repeat.
If you’re following me on Instagram then you know I just got back from a very magical trip to Banff, Canada. I feel like I literally experienced all 4 seasons there even though it was the end of June. I thought it might be handy to give a list of what to wear in Banff.Continue reading “What to Pack for a Trip to Banff”
The best most delicious must try food, snacks, wines, dips, cheeses, frozen foods, and desserts from the one and only Trader Joe’s.
I have been obsessed with Trader Joe’s before I ever set foot in the popular grocery store. One of the big reasons I was excited to move to California? Trader Joe’s.
On my Instagram (@blushinginhollywood) I’ve been posting Trader Joe’s Tuesday where I recommend different products or quick recipes. I figured I’d put together a master list of all of my all time favorite products. Whether you’re visiting Trader Joe’s for the first time or just want to know what’s good at Trader Joe’s you can use this post as a reference!

When my sister told me she wanted a tropical bridal shower I hit Pinterest and began furiously researching ideas and recipes! It was a brunch bridal shower that began at 11am on New Years Eve in Jupiter, Florida our hometown. Thank you so much to my step-mom Mary and to my sister Hannah for helping me with all of this as well as taking these amazing photos for this post! Check out more of her amazing photography on Instagram @hannah_claire_photography.Continue reading “Tropical Bridal Shower Ideas”
3/2/19 I am updating this post, but it’s incredible how most of the originals are still my all-time favorites and go-to’s when I have guests in town or give recommendations!
I’ve added mostly photos, but a few great newer places to check out – Rubies + Diamonds, Tocaya Organica, The Highlight Room, TAO, Blackwood Coffee Bar, Lono, Division 3, Afters Ice Cream, and Pace Joint. There’s also a few OG’s I can’t believe I didn’t include the first time – Mashti Malone’s Ice Cream which has been a Hollywood Staple for about 40 years! And Tiago which was my go-to breakfast place when I lived in Hollywood. I’ve also included a few gyms to burn off the calories after you eat and drink at these incredible places.
Recently I had my 5 year anniversary of moving to Hollywood so what better time to write up a guide or list of recommendations for anyone who wants to explore my neighborhood? Sorry for the lack of photos, most of these places are dark and sexy so even if I posted photos from there you wouldn’t be able to see anything!
