1. Peonies at Whole Foods in Pasadena. 2. My favorite childhood cereal. 3. Hot tea during lunch at The Terrace. 4. Overdue facial at The Huntington Spa.

Just a few random pics from my week so far.... Really looking forward to the weekend! We have a summer party with friends on Friday and then we are heading down to stay at the St. Regis Monarch Beach as a belated anniversary getaway! Any dinner recommendations for the Dana Point/Laguna Beach area?

Remember, only four more days to enter the Winks by Georgie Beauty giveaway! XOXO

I have many dinner recommendations!

Just north of Laguna on PCH is Crystal Cove. There's a Javier's (http://www.javiers-cantina.com/) and Mastro's (http://www.mastrosrestaurants.com/Locations/CA/61-Newport-Beach-Main/Default.aspx) there. I would recommend either of these to you first, but def. make reservations.

If you want to be in Laguna, Asada is great (http://asadalaguna.com/). And if you want to grab a day cocktail & appetizer, check out Rooftop (http://www.rooftoplagunabeach.com/index.php). Lots of OC Housewives episodes have been filmed there.

Down in Dana Point, check out Chart House (http://www.chart-house.com) or Cannon's (http://www.cannonsrestaurant.com/). Both have beautiful views of the harbor.
