The End


That's All Folks. I am officially closing up shop here at After Adornment and moving on to bigger and better things. Unfortunately this blog is no longer moving in the direction I really want it to and so I have decided to jump ship and concentrate on something new.

It's been fun while it lasted and a true test for me to take something and work at making it better. I have learned so much and will take everything with me as I venture forward.

Hopefully soon I'll be back....but in a different way. As always thanks for stopping by, leaving sweet comments, and your continued support.

I'd Stay Here: The Beverly Hills Hotel

Since I have dubbed this California week on the blog I thought we could highlight an amazing California landmark hotel. I mean what is more California than the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel.





Oh boy if these walls could talk. First opening in 1912 this hotel has had it's fare share of fabulous guests. Just the entry alone would make me feel like a movie star. And I love the signature green and white stripe ceiling.

 Entrance

Lobby

And this hotel is all about relaxation. Luxurious spa, see and be seen pool, and leisurely meals.

 Bar 1912

Patio at Bar 1912

 The Fountain Coffee Room

The Cabana Cafe

And that see and be seen pool. Looks like an amazing place to catch some rays and relax. I am sure this is where I would be all day long........between spa appointments.



Or better yet, why don't we just drop a few tens of thousands of dollars and stay in the Presidential Cabana....and have our own private pool.


Okay fine, a bit out of our reach. No worries, the guestrooms are luxurious as well. I love the homey old Hollywood feel. 





This place is definitely on my list of places to stay at some point in my life. I just hope it's sooner rather than later. What about you, would you stay here?

California Style

There is nothing better than a fabulous California residence. Every time I see a good one I get so jealous (I really want to have a NanaWall that opens up to the back yard one day) and tell my husband that we need to move there.

California is one of the places where the weather is great and you can open your home up to the outdoors all year long....and they do! And, if they can't open it up they always bring that light airy atmosphere in with huge windows or create amazing outdoor rooms that extend the space outside. Bringing the outdoors in and a relaxed vibe is always present in a great California home from Crescent City to Lake Tahoe to San Diego....and everything in between. I mean take a look at these amazing spaces!




















See what I mean. Open, airy, and the outdoor element is definitely showcased. Do you love the look of California Style?

And We're Off

Yeah!!! I am officially on vacation people and I can't even tell you how much we need this right now. This is the last time we wait till towards the end of the year to do anything...I can't wait this long to have time off and relax. Whew so glad it's here.


Eat, drink, sleep, take in the sites...that is the plan. The only plan! I am so excited to let loose, leave work behind, and unplug. I do have a few "California Style" posts set up for next week so stick around....we can all be in California even if it's just vicariously (unless you're lucky enough to already be there). I'll also be updating through Instagram and Twitter so follow me at lissapierce and @lissapierce respectively  I'm sure I will be taking tons of photos. That's it.

So have a great week and I'll see you back here in a few. See Ya!
