SLS Beverly Hills

I just spent a couple of weeks hanging out in the Pacific North West with my bestie from London. We started the trip with a few days in Los Angeles – needed the Vitamin D after being sun deprived over the winter.

We stayed at one of my favorite hotels in Beverly Hills – the SLS.  As always, the VIP Services Team – Amanda Nassirzadeh and Max Allard made sure our stay was without a hitch.  From the gigantic suite to the pool side cabana (and not to miss the amazing greek yogurt parfaits at breakfast), our stay at the SLS was the perfect start to my bestie’s vacation.

Definitely save a day to hang out by the pool.  A must try – the fresh watermelon juice with mint.  Super refreshing for a hot LA day.

Thinking of somewhere to lay your head in style in Los Angeles – highly recommend the SLS.  Information about the hotel is available here.  Remember the post on Elevator Fun?  Well, if you decide to pay the SLS Beverly Hills a visit, you may just recognize the decor!

Here are some pictures from the SLS.

Messenger Bags

Having lived in London and New York, where public transport and walking are part of the daily grind, messenger bags quickly became my everyday accessory. It’s not always easy to find a great leather messenger bag that is slick, modern and durable, yet affordable.  I think I may have an option – the Barneys New York E/W messenger bag crafted in scratch-resistant Saffiano leather for men and women.  Choose between different sizes and range of colors. The unisex Barneys New York Messenger Bag is available at Barneys Warehouse. Prices start at from $149.

You will definitely see Spruce and Sage sporting these unisex Messenger bags – perfect for the office and travels.  The compartments make it easy to organize all the items – from your laptop to your wallet. 





Mini, micro, maxi….so many new sizes t keep up with! I opted for this colorful mini Fendi peekaboo, which can double up as a crossbody. Choose your favorite style here – pick from a series of sizes and a multitude of colors! The Peekaboo is sure to add a spring in your step.        

Seattle Great Wheel

I was a little sceptical about getting on the Seattle Great Wheel (it was no London Eye), but I am so glad I got to experience it on this beautiful day. There’s more to Seattle than “Fifty Shades of Gray.”

If your travels take you to Seattle, I highly recommend the Seattle Great Wheel. You might even be lucky enough to spot some Whales. Information is available here.
