If you are looking for a super fun place for brunch to celebrate a birthday, have a bachelorette brunch and eat some really great food, look no further than Bagatelle.
Bagatelle delivers the ultimate French-inspired dining experience in a captivating, high-energy atmosphere. This brings a new “joie de vivre” to LA, mirroring that which can be found in the South of France and their worldwide locations. The restaurant features a wide selection of champagne, that is perfect for pairing with Chef Robert Liberato’s new savory brunch menu which offers decadent options like the Smoked Salmon Flat Bread (dill fromage blanc, red onion, capers and smoked salmon), Bagatelle Waffle with caramelized bananas and cognac maple glaze, Truffle Scrambled Eggs (soft scrambled organic eggs, crème fraiche, black truffle and brioche toast) and the Truffle-Fried Chicken with jalapeno cheddar biscuits, truffle honey, shallot jam, to name a very few.
If you still have room make sure to taste one of the restaurant’s signature dishes — Tartare de Thon (Yellow fin tuna tartare, avocado, cilantro, citrus soy vinaigrette, taro chips), Gnocchi Truffes à la Parisienne de Nicolas (Homemade gnocchi, black truffle pesto filling, truffle sauce) and Poulet Organic Roti et Truffe Pour Deux (Truffle natural whole roasted chicken, roasted yucon gold potatoes, shallots, button mushrooms – for two).
If you’re lucky like we were, the table next to you will offer you a shot to help with their celebration! Weekly happenings at Bagatelle Los Angeles include their Friday and Saturday night dinner parties as well as their world famous Brunch that all feature a blend of DJ’s, percussionists and performers that bring the French Riviera vibe to West Hollywood. — Michael
MOVA Globes ($125.00 – $550.00)
Are you looking for the perfect gift for Father’s Day or even a graduation gift? This is probably one of the most exquisite items that I have ever seen. The award-winning MOVA Globe is the most unique, handcrafted desk globe on the market.
Using only the finest materials with high quality imagery and patented eco-friendly technology, these globes are even 90% handmade. With solar cells inside that are hidden from view, MOVA Globes also rotate continuously all on their own and come in a variety of prints including vintage and modern world maps, space, fine art, and sports.
Each globe comes packaged with a three-pronged acrylic base. The all-around craftsmanship is extraordinary. These are just really beautiful pieces of artwork and will class up and desk, shelf or table that they are placed upon. — Lea
Beaches by Gray Malin ($125.00)
Filled with beautiful aerial shots of beaches around the world, the photography book by Gray Malin will give you a serious case of FOMO. I love having this on my coffee table at home. It’s just so bright and fun — perfect for summer! — Gabi
If you want to add some fun to your wrist, then one of these watches from Watchitude is what you need ASAP! Watchitude lets kids of all ages slap on some serious attitude with their colorful and themed slap watches.
Watchitude styles are laser printed on high-quality durable materials and the styles available are endless — with everything from sports to sprinkles, there is a watch to fit anyone’s style. Our favorite styles are the pizza and bacon watches although wearing them may induce hunger. — Robert
I found the men’s swim trunk of the summer! The 6″ Catalonia from Parke & Ronen is a tailored inspired swim trunk in a fun cherry micro gingham pattern. If you want to look chic by the pool, then you’re going to want to buy this swim trunk.
This trunk is really versatile — you can swim and lounge by the pool or wear it as an everyday short. The Catalonia features tailored detailing including front zipper with hook and eye closure, adjustable waist, side pockets with accent binding, back pocket with button closure, low-rise and full mesh lining.
If you’re familiar at all with Parke & Ronen, then you know that the quality is stupendous and this is a swim trunk that is not going out of style any time soon. — Michael
Like Taylor Swift and Gwen Stefani, I love a good red lip. Peek Cosmetics Lip Blaster in Mystery is super pigmented and vibrant, making it the perfect go-to red for any occasion. Unlike a lot of the liquid lipsticks out there, the formula is creamy and non-drying so the color won’t settle in the cracks of your lip. Swoon! — Gabi
Beauty Bear Pillow from Nurse Jamie ($69.00)
Ever since I heard that Khloé Kardashian sleeps on silk pillowcases to prevent wrinkles, I’ve been intrigued by the whole idea of having special pillows for your face. After all, they don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing! Shaped like a bear to cradle your neck and face, this pillow from Nurse Jamie is said to fight wrinkles as you snooze. I like how compact it is so you can even travel with it. — Gabi
