Earrings for Summer

Just added to the Bonnin Designs website, many new earrings with necklaces to match some of them. These are my Tropics inspired pieces. With titles such as "Paradise", "Moonlight", and "Solstice", you know it's time for summer.

ZZZZZZ - Not Sleep, Pizza

Let me tell you about Z Pizza. There are quite a few here in So. Cal, but I was only introduced to one last week. Talk about the YUM factor. Great salads and Pizza combinations. I must say, being a New Yorker, it's rare to get that crust/cheese combination that is just right. This is, and more. Check out their menu at their site.

Foodie, I Am

I figure, since I am a total food/restaurant fanatic, I could use this blog as a platform to recommend restaurants, or not, recommend food, cooking ideas, and wine recommendations.

So here is the first entry:
Went to Joe's Crab Shack in Newport Beach on Sunday for a late lunch/early dinner. I have to say, I wanted to be impressed, but when the salad came with the Italian dressing I asked for and it tasted like bottled Wishbone dressing, that set the mood. The crab was crab. The coconut shrimp was yummy though with a fruity dip for it. Like a plum sauce almost. All in all, I won't go back. Wasn't that impressed that I need to return to wait for 30 min. at 2pm on a Sunday. Hey, crabs take a long time to eat. Hate to see how long a dinner crowd has to wait.

New Gemstones

A quick stop at a local Gem and Bead show and inspiration ensued. Coming soon to a new line for summer called "The Tropics" Green and Blue turquoise, aqua beads like the water made of Peruvian Opal and more turquoise as well as a peach coral. Also Opalite reminding me of the glistening water in the moonlight.
