{ My must-visit lunch when visiting CA... }

Processed with VSCO with 7 preset

A few weeks ago, I got to visit with some amazing people (both the Caroline Herrera and Disney teams) out in California for work. When we rolled up to the BeverlyHills Hotel I knew I was about to experience some true Hollywood glamour. Because I'm a design geek I spent some time just admiring the outside of the hotel and maybe one of the most on-point logos of all time.

As I walked through the

hotel

and down the corridor - a path coated in

A cool salmon pink, trimmed in green with  brass accents - I knew this place was designed for me. While I can't share much about the

hotel

aside from that walk to the restaurant, I was sure it was designed just for me.

The

Beverly

Hills

Cabana Cafe

 is someplace I was hoping to get some time to visit so when we were invited in by the delightful team there I literally adjusted our entire week schedule in order to find a way to breakfast in this Cali institution.

I brought a friend along and we decided to start out morning off with cocktails. (We got caught up in the ambience. Seemed like the thing.) I had an Instagram-Worthy vodka and watermelon choice, because I can't resist a good ombré. We enjoyed our egg breakfasts in the most glamorous shaded booth. While relaxing on the striped cushions, we took in the pink walls covered with perfectly manicured climbing ivy, and admired the mirrored sconces over each table. To our left- the most charming grouping of tables, which led to the

hotel

's iconic pool. I wanted to cancel the rest of my day, grab my white high waisted bikini and make myself a part of the scene but unfortunately after the most glam brekkie ever we were forced to switch to coffee because we had some work to tend to.

Thank you for having me in team Bev

Hills

. I can't imagine how glam the rest of the place is- but fully intend to check it out when I come back to Cali on the book

Press tour later in the year.
