Window shopping in Beverly Hills is an experience all on it’s own.  In fact, its so great it makes not buying anything not so bad….

Before getting started – we stopped by The Beverly Hills Hotel so I could get a quick peek at the lobby design.  (Pssst – while we were there I saw Ryan Reynolds!)

Then – off to Rodeo Drive…


Louis Vuitton


Stuart Weitzman

I really can’t remember this one but loved the two story front window and models up in the air.

Or this one but aren’t the mannequins great?



Harry Winston

My preferred method of travel (and lust list auto) was on every street corner!

Last but not least!!

Truth be told…this place was not in Beverly Hills.  It was on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood but look!  This place seriously cracked me up:  The Dry Bar!  Its a styling salon specializing in blow outs!  The decor was too clever!  Check out the blowdryer chandelier.

So like I said…the window shopping IS so great that it makes not buying anything not so bad!

Happy shopping!

Need a little lovin’?

I have just the place for you:  Bubba’s Love Shak in Murrell’s Inlet, South Carolina.

This lucky find is perfect for all ages with a fun, colorful “shak” that makes you feel right at home.

Oh and yes, that’s mini-me in the pink t-shirt waiting for crayons from the hostess.

Last but not least is one of the funniest restaurant t-shirts E.V.E.R.!

Bubba has a great story to tell and if you are lucky enough ~ you might just happen to run into him while you are there.  We did and he was an absolute gem with our kids.  If your Karma doesn’t kick in when you go; you can still read all about him in the menu or  click here to read the story now.

One of my favorite things about Bubba is his motto:  Patience is a virtue and the color of one’s skin does not matter, it’s what’s in the heart that counts. Amen!  Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we all felt that way?

See you at the “Shak”…

Last night we had the pleasure to attend Charlotte Home + Garden magazines launch party to celebrate their clean, streamlined new look.  It could not have been a more beautiful evening or location: right in the middle of the Van Landingham Estate ~ which is located in one of Charlotte’s most beautiful neighborhoods.

The lovely side yard was well prepared for guests.

Want to see more?  We thought you might so we ran back to the car to get our camera (ok, iphone) so we could give you a peek into our evening:

The brick pathways eventually lead to this garden house.

The yard was full of blooming flowers, water features and sweet pathways leading all over the property.

A table full of hot-off-the-press magazine's shows off their fresh, clean new look. Lucky us, we got to take a few copies home!

The flowers on each table complimented what was freshly blooming in the yard.


Special thanks to our friend and Editor Blake Miller for including us on such a special evening!  CH+G is already listed as one of our Friday Favorites:  check out our post from October 10, 2010 here.
