Beverly Hills, y'all

One of the highlights to my trip out West was a stop in Beverly Hills. As those of you who follow my blog know, I am quite the Bravo junkie. I especially love the Real Housewives series, and the ladies of Beverly Hills has been a fave of mine.

Lisa Vanderpump is my favorite housewife of Beverly Hills, so J & I dashed to her restaurant, Villa Blanca. The restaurant was exactly the style that I pictured. Full of plants, flowers, and antiqued mirrors, Villa Blanca is such a romantic place for lunch or dinner. I asked about the proprietor's whereabouts but was told that she and the cast were filming their next season in Hawaii. I recognized none of the servers from the series. Our waiter is the manager of PUMP, but we did not have time for a visit. 

Lunch was very good. J & I shared the crispy calamari and the artichoke pizza. I sipped a rather tasteless Bloody Mary.

After lunch, we stalked Kyle Richard's shop KYLE by Alene too located right around the corner from Villa Blanca. Sadly Kyle and handsome husband Mauricio were not in the shop.

We then headed down Rodeo Drive. I felt a little like my fave Julia Roberts from Pretty Woman walking up and down the famous street. Expensive shops lined palm laden drive---- Gucci, Hermes, Ralph Lauren, Valentino, Jimmy Choo, Versace.... and many more!
I do not think I've ever seen so many Ferarris and Porsches in my life.

Exciting? Yes! And this is how I finished my trip out West.

Beverly Hills, y'all!


  1. Good morning, Ron! Looks like you finished your trip out West in style! Enjoyed being the "virtual" traveler on your escapades. Have a great day! xoxo

  2. What a great way to finish out a wonderful trip! We've been to California a few times...we love it!!

  3. Have they not heard of Zing Zang! What a wonderful trip!

  4. Your Bloody Mary was tasteless? Every good Louisiana boy travels with a tiny sized Tabasco bottle for just such emergencies! Run back home to the South where we know how to spice things up!

  5. What fun! I wish at least one of the BH housewives had been around!

  6. What a fun day! Too bad Lisa wasn't there....I just adore her and would love to meet her too!!!!

  7. Oh my exciting! I loved seeing the pics of Lisa's restaurant. I've watched the housewives show before and have always thought that place looked so nice. (I bet it was expensive.) I have never been to the west coast so all of your travels have been fun for me to look at.

  8. So glad that you,liked Beverly Hills. It's a fun place to go to and see all those fab stores. I love all of Lisa's restaurants. She is a one smart gal. Now back to reality .... glad that you had a wonderful vacation.
