[EAT] SWEET ROSE CREAMERY // LA

{Photographs by Sally J Shim}

Three posts about ice cream in one week? Sure why not it's summer after all! Last month after our delicious meal at FARMSHOP in LA the boys and I headed over to Sweet Rose Creamery [which is also located in the Brentwood Country Mart]. It is a sweet little shop that prides itself in making small batches of homemade ice cream. The boys had the Fresh Mint with Home Made Chocolate Chip and Salted Caramel cones. The flavors are intense and you can really taste all of the natural ingredients. Next time we're going to try the ice cream pies!

[ENTERTAINING] SOPHIE CONRAN 

{Living in Store}

These entertaining buckets by Sophie Conran are so clever. The Drink Bucket is a homemade lemonade and cordial kit and contains a recipe book, muslin square for straining, funnel, glass bottles, drinking straws and ice bucket. The Eat Bucket contains a portable BBQ, charcoal, matches, tongs and recipe booklet. Both buckets would come in handy if you like to entertain or they would also make fantastic hostess gifts.

[DESIGN] CLARE VIVIER

{Clare Vivier}

Clare Vivier is a line of classic and beautifully constructed handbags. Their entire collection is manufactured in Los Angeles and I've heard their handbags just get better over time. I've been dreaming about owning a La Tropézienne tote for several years and I am in love with the new navy version. I also love the foldover clutches, the neon zippers are the perfect touch.

P.S. Vanessa just told me that Pretty Mommy is having a sale and they carry Clare Vivier!

[EAT] JENI'S ICE CREAM

{Jeni's Ice Cream}

The ice cream theme continues. I love these spoonfuls of Jeni's ice cream which come in the prettiest colors. Their macaron ice cream sandwiches also look amazing.

[EAT] RUBY JEWEL

{Photographs by Sally J Shim}

Ruby Jewel is a local ice cream company here in Portland. Although they sell their yummy ice cream in markets across the country the boys and I like to visit their sweet scoop shop on N. Mississippi. Ruby Jewel uses local and handmade ingredients and sauces. They offer cones [I think the kid scoops are the perfect size], floats, sundaes and ice cream sandwiches.  J favors the caramel with salted dark chocolate while j loves the strawberry. It is the perfect spot to meet up with friends on a hot summer day.
