One of my favorite restaurants in Nor Cal is Tomatina. Besides their delicious garlic roll appetizer, they have a phenomenon on their menu called a Piadine. It's basically a "Warm flatbread topped with a cool salad" and is one of the most fabulous things of all time. So you can imagine how happy I was today when I came across the Trader Joe's version on their shelf. For under $5 and in 5 minutes you can have your very own cheesy flatbread with a lemony arugula salad on top. It satisfies even my biggest Piadine cravings while I'm still right here in the city of angels. Delish!
The best way to ring in the new year is to wear a fabulous ensemble on New Year's Eve and celebrate with your best friends. So when I stumbled across shoes designed by my favorite Project Runway winner Christian Siriano, I just had to have them to complete my last outfit of 2010 which will of course, become the first of 2011. When you need a special shoe at the last minute, don't front, check out Payless! They have been hiring high end designers for a while now so that you can access some of your favorite fashions at a price point that anyone can handle. Starting this year with great shoes means 2011 is going to be FIERCE!
