weekender

Let your passion guide you on an epic vacation
Presented by Hilton
In our family, making the most of summer means frequent weekend trips. It also means cramming as much leisure time into 48 hours as possible. For my husband and I, Key West is always an obvious choice, as it's a short plane ride from Boston and it never lacks for things to do.
If you want to be on the cutting edge of fashion for fall, don't look to shop windows, look to the future! As I often tell my clients, if you see it in stores, it's already out, which is why I keep an eye on global trend forecasts.
Whether you've got an extra vacation day to spare or not, summer is ALWAYS a good excuse for a long weekend trip. Life moves
Let's be honest, traveling without the right accessories can be dreadful. Always searching for your passport, not prepared for the airline losing your luggage, being afraid the zipper on your suitcase might burst, the list goes on and on.
Today's weekender is for the rest of you who, for whatever reason, decided to opt out of the whole Coachella experience. Luckily, there's no reason to despair at being left behind, as we luckily live in Los Angeles, not Topeka, and there's never a dull moment here.
While it was nice to have a day off from work mid-week, we feel teased and are now just counting the minutes until the weekend. Here are a few things to look forward to when the clock strikes however-early-you-can-pull-your-parachute-today.
When the weekend begins, we completely understand the urge to drop everything, smash your computer screen and run like a wild banshee into the bliss of Saturday and Sunday. And do we even have to tell you that Friday is National Doughnut Day?
Exhausted from dealing with the psychopath who calls himself your boss? Head to Culver City and grab a snack from Fraiche's secret menu. Then, catch an 8 p.m. screening of the classic (we're not kidding) film Center Stage.
Naturally, the most important item on everyone's weekend agenda is the Pop-Up Party we're throwing at Apt2B on Melrose this Saturday afternoon. Don't be "L.A." and flake. But onto other, less important things happening this weekend...
