Sunday–Garden Fresh

We usually have a back-to-back workout schedule over the weekend –long distance hiking and running. So it is pretty tiring at the end of the day. And recover is the key for us to get back to the weekly track. We usually do carbs loading over the weekends and find it is really help accelerate the recovery. One of our favorite things to do after the hiking and running is to just chill out in our backyard by the fireside and enjoy some garden fresh–some we got from the farmer’s market and some we picked up from our backyard. We feel those rich autumn colors really put us in a festive mood.

Benjamin Moore Announced It’s Color of The Year 2021

Today, Benjamin Moore announced it’s color of the year 2021– Aegean Teal 2136-40, a captivating blue-green through a Facebook live video.

The color “Aegean Teal” is a blend of blue and green, with grey undertones. In Benjamin Moore’s color catalogue, it is described as an “intriguing midtone that creates natural harmony.” 

Aegean Teal reflects organic shades the team found at farmer’s markets and the belief that “the kitchen serves as a place of nourishment” and a center of community.

New Year’s Day Traveling

We have a tradition for every New Year’s Day.  Yes, we will go to beach to enjoy some sunshine , to be close to the ocean to feel its abundance and greatness. Ocean has a magic power that always calm us and show us there are actually tremendous opportunities and hopes out there in the world. And the most important thing ocean teaches us  is to be kind, generous and tolenrant from those who are different from you.

Yes, we are in famous Japanese Nobu restaurant in Malibu.

Malibu is a city west of Los Angeles, California. It’s known for its celebrity homes and beaches, including wide and sandy Zuma Beach. To the east is Malibu Lagoon State Beach, known as Surfrider Beach for its waves. Nearby is the Spanish Revival–style Adamson House decorated with historical California hand-made tiles. Malibu is such a lovely beach town in SoCal with pretty relaxing vibes. Our trip this time  is to visit Nobu, relax at its breath-taking beach-view porch, take a walk on the pier and just stroll around the town.

Nobu, Malibu is Iron Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Japanese delicacies, plus California fare, in a modern, beachfront space. “Originally opening in the Malibu Country Mart in 1999 as the fourth Nobu location in the United States, Nobu Malibu moved to it’s current location in 2012. The views of the ocean from nearly every seat in the restaurant, as well as Malibu-specific specialty dishes in addition to all of the Nobu classics, make this a destination dining experience not to be missed.” We have been too Nobu restaurant and hotel in Las Vegas. I will say Nobu Malibu has more relaxing beach get-away vibes while the Las Vegas one gears  more toward high-caliber clubbing experiences.  Each restaurant has their specialities. But one dish we like from both locations is Black Cod Miso.  You’ve got to order it if you have a chance to visit.

Inside of  crowded Nobu Restaurant, Malibu on the New Year’s Day of 2020

Known for its five-star cuisine and decadent Japanese-inspired interiors, you’re likely to spot a Kardashian at this California go-to. The LA-based sushi bar is such a celebrity staple, it’s even name-dropped in three Drake songs and a Kanye track. That said, the opening of their luxury hotel Nobu Ryokan Malibu is bound to attract a star-studded guest list. We didn’t get a chance to visit the hotel this time since it is guests-only(maybe next time). But I found an article from Elle Decor talking about this newly opened 5-star hotel.

beachfront-room-1494524903.jpgOverlooking Carbon Beach along the Pacific Coast Highway, the lodge draws from the area’s laidback California style while boasting Nobu’s signature Japanese design.The building’s original structure was a 1950’s beach motel, which architects Studio PCH and Montalba Architects have dramatically transformed. Each guest room has its own unique interior design, all incorporating teak, bronze, and limestone to maintain a calming neutral color palette throughout.

3 Colors that are Trendy Now

It’s almost the end of August.  I feel I just cannot wait to see all of  the new color palettes in fall. Here are 3 colors that I start to see them everywhere and they may dominate the this coming fall season.

  1. Chili Pepper Red— a little bit red on accessories like purses, boots, socks, …etc pairing with warm neutrals  is fresh, exciting yet classic and ladylike.4f1fc827becf8fc62570522a43f1ef900cec1b2d68bce193054bc7b155734d0d

2.Cinnemon:

Cinnamon is a warm, medium shade of brown.

Cinnamon is darker than shades like tan and beige but lighter than chocolate or true brown. Its warm undertones mean the hue can sometimes look red or orange-tinged. Cinnamon color looks fashionable, youthful and sophisticated when pared with checkered patterns and animal prints.

3.Vanilla Custard

If you’re looking for subtler colors to try this season, then sumptuous cream and beige tones are your perfect choice. The expensive-looking neutral shades are gorgeous when layered in different fabrics.
