NYFW

On schedule was hopping on our plane, getting to NY, nestling into one of the best hotel setups ever with WestHouse, grabbing a bite at my favorite burger place, Bareburger and catching up on some Z's for the busy day ahead...

ECCO In The Rockies

ECCO In The Rockies

Canadian winters, especially winters in the Canadian Rockies, call for warmth, comfort and style. ECCO's Ukiuk boots are a classic Scandinavian style snow boot and I'm loving their easy to move, natural design. I'm not usually a fan of furry boots, because they often aren't flattering, but these were crafted with both function and aesthetics in mind...

This past weekend we had the loveliest time celebrating my sister and her boyfriend's birthdays, yes, they both have the same birthday. Our restaurant of choice? Crossroads Kitchen by Chef Tal Ronnen. I think I have to deem this my absolute favorite place to eat. Their food is at another level. My favorite part? Crossroads isn't a place that highlights being plant-based, it highlights good food. It's a place for food fans. The theme is Mediterranean, and you're not going to find the typical tofu steak and tempeh wraps other plant-based restaurants serve. With the perfect combination of flavors, textures, colors, a superb atmosphere and welcoming staff, Crossroads is definitely a place you must experience when in LA.

My favorite dish? The Moussaka. I can't go there and not order it. 

Would I recommend this place to my fellow vegans? Absolutely! 

Would I recommend it to my not so vegan friends? Yes, yes, yes!
