So many great places to eat brunch in San Diego! I had a chance to spend time with Chef Nick Green, who's creating exciting dishes at #Adelaide at L'Auberge Del Mar, and try Top Chef's Claudette Zepeda's toast at #VAGA in Alila Marea Resort in Encinitas.
So much fun to consume gelato and talk to the San Diegan owners, 4 friends who've known each other for a decade.
Korean spa, Glen Ivy mud baths, Thai massage, and Ayurvedic third-eye treatment
I got to highlight a few of my favorite holiday traditions: beach bonfires, Hotel Del Coronado, and Fairmont Grand Del Mar.
I wrote about Asian alternatives to Christmas Eve and local afternoon teas.
