A friend sent me here when i was looking for incense - they had a great selection - lots of candles too, this is a really interesting place on Ventura Boulevard - they even have a palm reader on staff.
Marco is amazing - he's a great desinger and you can buy his cute little dresses and skirts right off the rack in his store or get something custom made - he has a real eye for fashion and what looks good on a woman's body. The store is located in the thick of some hollywood clubs and he often keeps the store open late so you can shop while waiting in line to get in...
PROS: one of a kind pieces - designer originals
This little shop is so cute - they have great items for you and your baby - they carry petunia picklebottom - great diaper bags and they were one of the only places in the valley where i found the medela pump system - the staff is so nice and friendly - this is a great place to pick up a cute baby gift.
I work in Glendale and my favorite heels for work were not only looking a bit tattered but I found that the heel cap was missing on one - so i took them in to Zinkies - just hoping for a fix good enough to get me through the season - not only are they fixed - but they look brand new - the fixed the heels and soles and shined them - i spent 15$ and now my $120 shoes are like new again - thank you Zinkies
PROS: glendale and pasadena locations
Flowerwild has the best selection of flowers i've ever seen - very different from what you get at a bigger florist - they do really unique arrangements - just lovely stuff - i go here when i want a beautiful arrangement for a girlfriend. They are lovely and at great prices too.
this little flowershop is so lovely - so peaceful when you enter and what a lovely selection of flowers - i love supporting a local shop - especially when they give great service and provide such a beautiful selection of flowers.
So for a place to workout on my lunch break - this place is just fine - they have treadmills and that's pretty much all i need - the staff is not nice - and thier selection of reading materials - magazines - are totally outdated - i picked up one last week from May of 2003 - ouch - the scale has been broken for almost a month and no one seems to care to fix it though i myself have mentioned it repeatedly - they are definitley interested in signing you up - but it pretty much stops there... if it wasn't a block from my office, i wouldn't go...
CONS: poor attitude of staff
This little gem is a great place for lunch or just dessert. They have quite a selection of pastries should you just want one with a cup of coffee or a few to go. Very beautifully crafted tiny pastries - very french - very tasty. You can lunch inside or out - out is lovely - you almost feel as though your at a parisian cafe - except that Riverside is a busy LA street - so almost...
PROS: great pastries
Don't want an ordinary cake for your next birthday - cupcakes aren't just for kids - at Yummy cupcakes they make cocktail versions of the pint size cakes - love the mojito! And last party was a Texas Holdem Theme so they put little hearts and diamonds and clubs and spades on each one - so cute and so tasty - very reasonable prices for such a quality product.
Located on Laurel Canyon in the valley - this is a great Gelson's - lots of parking - i particularly like their floral department - i've had to have an arrangement done last minute - first thing in the morning - when no one else is open for business yet - and they did an amazing job - also really love thier curry chicken salad in the deli - and thier boxed lunches for take out - great for picnicing or going to the hollywood bowl...
PROS: plenty of parking - great curry chicken salad
