Really excited to read Whitney's review of Bottega Louie...this has been added to my list of places to visit in L.A. :
"For a 22-year-old, I read more 35-year-old-woman magazines than your average suburban mother. I am constantly pulling tips on how to make my Mornings Less Stressful and how to become The Hostess with the Mostess, but this time of year, these publications really pull out the stops and all I want is to make my own wreath and host a Holiday party that would rival the Downton Abbey Christmas Special. This is the first year in many that I've actually had the time to spend doing all things Christmas leading up to the big day, and that s a wonderful feeling. Of course I chose to move to LA and spend this first year of holiday bliss in a place that doesn't really scream roast-chestnuts-on-a-one-horse-open-sleigh-through-a-marshmallow-world-becuase-santa-claus-is-coming-to-town. To be honest, LA looks more like Tomorrowland than something out of a Dickens novel, so this month, I was on a mission to find a little sparkle and a little holiday cheer."
