Brunch, Darling

c(2)I’m on my way up to San Francisco this morning but I wanted to share some shots from Sunday’s events…




b(2)Sunday morning started out with a Spring Fling Blogger’s Brunch hosted by SoCal Blogger Society and LA Brunchers.  This was a fun chance to meet fellow bloggers and enjoy a fabulous meal at Areal in Santa Monica.  I’ve been there once before for dinner with my boyfriend but now I can’t wait to go back again for the brunch….YUM!  I had a spinach and goat cheese omelet and next time I want to try the quinoa and eggs.  There were also mini cinnamon rolls, bacon and date appetizers, breakfast potatoes, free-flowing mimosas, bloody Mary’s and bacon-infused old fashioned’s plus ‘family style’ desserts including chocolate cake, LA-style bread pudding and Carrot Cake.

f(2)After brunch I headed over to Alchemy Works for the Darling Magazine launch party to celebrate their 7th issue – what a scene!  It was packed and so much fun…
