This weekend Tiny G and I hit Abbot Kinney to meet Tiny G’s doppelgänger HRM and his mom, Andrea, for brunch at Gjelina. First off, the staff there is the bomb. Couldn’t be friendlier, and Tiny G definitely had eyes for ladies at the front of the house. I had eyes for the chickpea stew with Israeli couscous, spiced yogurt and harissa:

And then we walked down to see my friend Andy, who is the “A” in the A+R Store, which was hopping! I am slightly obsessed with this porcelain Wellington boot vase I saw there from Czech designer Maxim Velčovský. Do I need one??? I think maybe yes…

On Sunday night we had the best dinner with friends. Amy’s shrimp dish was incredible as was Adam’s homemade ice cream made with vanilla beans that Kathleen had brought back from Moorea, as were William’s wine selections (more on all of that later this week), but there was another shrimp who was the toast of the night, and that was Tiny G. He was rocking some chocolate brown angora slippers that his aunt Stefanie sent him from New York. Ironically enough they’re made right here in L.A. by a company called Yo My Booties in Venice. They’re available in a delicious range of colors—and look, there’s a food theme with the colors: cotton candy, blueberry, lime, pumpkin, cream, chocolate! I wish they came in adult sizes because not only are they incredibly soft but chic beyond belief. So is their, ahem, $50 price tag. (Stefanie!!!!)
