A reason to have that unbirthday party you've always wanted.
The Arts District has a friendly neighbor who invites all of LA over for a convivial cup of tea. And instead of doilies and fine China, you'll be welcomed by a tea garden entry and then sip from modern, double-walled glass cups inside a lofty space bedecked with wood, stone, and contemporary art.

A published chapter from my working memoir, 104 Raves. Chapter titled, Supergirl. Page 61! Clayton was wearing a big goofy smile when he plopped into my white '76 VW Beetle. “Hi doll face,” he said, leaning in for a kiss. He tasted more like cigarettes than weed this afternoon. “Hi! So, are you going to tell me where we're going? And what my second birthday present is?” “We're going to my friend Dave's place. He wants to be a ...

Introduction
Growing up in Oakland, CA, my first icon was Punky Brewster; I adored her spunky spirit and funky style. I went to college at The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and then lived 'work hard, play hard' working in advertising. After heading back to the Bay Area, I found myself a professional blogger as Editor of PopSugar Fashion. Now, I am a freelance lifestyle writer living in Venice, CA.
