What are you up to this weekend? I’ll be spending most of it cooped up in the casa working on a marketing plan & re-writing an essay I bombed (both for college). It’s supposed to be in the low to mid 80′s in SoCal, so I know plenty of friends who’ll be out at the beach playing volley, as well as some friends that are going to Coachella. I can assure you my jealousy will be contained. Meanwhile, here are some posts from around the web . . .

Happiest Friday friends. The weather is supposed to be divine this weekend. Which means I’ll be drinking wine and laying on the beach. What will you be doing?
Chris Oliver, Food Stylist
I had the pleasure of going to Newport Beach this past Sunday to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We rented a boat on Balboa Island and my friend’s mother, Chris Oliver, is a food stylist for Hollywood. She brought an array of absolutely amazing food which included: Chicken, freshhhhhh salmon, a pasta salad with artichoke hearts (yum!) and grilled vegetables (squash, eggplant, asparagus, zuchinni). There was something for everyone and it was all SO delish! We had champagne of course to celebrate the birthday girl and then for dessert we had an arrangment of fruit (pictured above) with cheese. The best part? The whipped cream! She used cool whip, mint & orange zest with a special ingrident. I pretty much wanted to demolish the entire bowl it was that good.
