There are very few candles I love. I’m devoted to a very few. But a friend gave me a Vie Luxe Blanc candle for my birthday, and I cannot get enough of it. I actually went back to the store to buy another (and would have bought more if they’d had them). If you’re looking for a great Valentine’s Day gift for someone who loves candles (maybe even for yourself), I vote for this one.
Speaking of Valentine’s Day, I’m loving the preparations for it. I’ve been helping my daughter make the above Valentines. What is it about hedgehogs that makes them so irresistibly cute? Are hedgehogs even friendly? I don’t know, but I love them very, very much.
I am still thinking of the meal I had at Capo Restaurant in Santa Monica a few weeks ago. It has to be one of my favorite restaurants in the entire world (which is saying a lot). When we walked in, the scent of truffles overtook me and sent me into a state of delirium that I had to fight to hide. The food is so ridiculously amazingly crazily good. If you have a chance, please go there. You will not regret it. And, if you go, please consider ordering the Rigatoni with Truffle Meat Sauce (which is not the pasta pictured above, because I was too busy devouring it to take a picture, but doesn’t this look good too?). It will transport you to a cloud of radness from which you will not depart for a good long while.
Have a wonderful weekend!
