It’s not hard to imagine that Kelly Lee of Kelly Golightly’s favorite quote is “Happy girls are the prettiest girls”. Her blog exudes bliss and we were lucky enough to discover a few her indulgences.
Music Therapy: I love picking up old records at thrift stores and my best recent find was the Breakfast at Tiffany’s soundtrack, so I play that over and over and over again. I may be a little obsessed. Moon River…
Favorite Read: I’m lucky that I get to write about some of the world’s most beautiful weddings for Inside Weddings magazine, so that’s definitely a favorite for party and decor inspiration — and while I love the design aspects, the couples’ love stories and how they met is actually my favorite part (I’m such a sap). I also love any interior design and decorating magazine I can get my hands on (’til this day, I still miss Domino). And New York magazine is my US Weekly.
Favorite Destination Around Town: Sprinkles Ice Cream and Bouchon Bakery are both in dangerous walking distance from our place, so I’m often getting my sweet tooth fix there. And when I want my clothing and candy fix in one go, I head to A SweeT Boutique, where they serve up both!
We recently bought a weekend house in Palm Springs, so we split our time between LA and Palm Springs. When we’re out in the desert you can find me at Las Casuelas eating Mexican food, shopping at Party Lab for fun party supplies and treasure-hunting at all the great vintage and thrift stores in town.
Curious Epicurean: I love the casual French bistro Mr. Marcel in Beverly Hills for brunch/lunch and Speranza in Silver Lake for the best Italian (so cute for date night — they even pass out blankets to keep things cozy!). Now that we’re homeowners with an actual yard and pool, I must admit al fresco meals by the pool can’t be beat.
Weekend Schedule: My ideal weekend day is sleeping in, having a long leisurely brunch at home, swanning in the pool,exploring the desert (and maybe getting in a photo shoot) and hitting up a vintage furniture store or two.
Aroma Therapy: I don’t typically wear perfume but have been known to dabble a little vanilla extract behind my ears. There’s nothing better than the smell of baking — even if you haven’t spent all day in the kitchen.
Beauty Ritual: Sleep, lots and lots of sleep. And a big sunhat!
