With Valentine’s Day just behind us, February is always a great month because love is in the air. While this month’s favorites might have come a little late in terms of a gift guide for that special someone, I wanted to wait because I feel as though these favorites should be things I love or discover in all of February. But if gift guides (most likely interior/home specific) are something you would want to see, please let me know in the comments!
Thing for the Home: You can never go wrong with a good coffee table book, so this month’s favorite is the Living in Japan book by Taschen. I went to Japan October 2017 and absolutely loved it (you can find my travel guide here). In terms of design, it is a very inspiring place and this book will give you a little taste of that. Plus, with springtime just around the corner (aka cherry blossom season in Japan), it could spark some wanderlust and who knows, maybe you’ll just find yourself booking a flight.
Thing to Wear: I’ve been on the go, both work-wise and travel-wise, since the start of the new year, and comfortable kicks are a MUST. I got the Nike M2K Tekno’s in black and white for Christmas and have been wearing them all over. Whether that’s job sites, the airport, or even just everyday errands. They are so comfortable, and definitely have a more high-fashion vibe than your average trainers. I love the thicker sole since it has more of a dad-shoe vibe. It also comes in a large variety of color ways for both men and women.
Instagram: @moncxiii. An interior designer I follow posted that they went to this showroom in the Hamptons, and ever since I have fallen in love. They post amazing interior inspiration as well as photos from their showroom which I am dying to visit!
Hotel / Restaurant / Store: This month, I want to share with you a new restaurant in LA. If you are from Los Angeles, or know of the dining scene there, you know that Jon & Vinny’s is a cult favorite. They opened their first location on Fairfax a few years ago and just recently opened their second in Brentwood. I love their new location for multiple reasons. 1. It is walking distance from my place. 2. The location is a lot bigger (the one on Fairfax is pretty small). and 3. The food is JUST SO DAMN GOOD. Definitely add it to your list and be sure to make reservations far in advance!
Song: Heart Eatin’ Darlin by Gabsxriella. I am obsessed with this song. One of my dear dear friends is the artist and she showed me the song back in October. It was just released on Spotify and Apple Music this Valentine’s Day and I am so beyond proud. If you know me, you know how much I love 80s music and this is exactly that. Give it a listen below.
And that concludes my favorites for February. Hope you enjoyed them as much as I have and I can’t wait till next month. Happy Love Month y’all! xx
