welcome

 to the colorful journal of Marissa Berrini, creative director, artist and curator living in Los Angeles. Launched in 2010, Marissa's online journal tells of adventures with her husband Sam, their fur kids, the occasional cocktail creation and lots of conversations with inspiring people. This blog serves to celebrate tiny victories, inspiration for those times you're stuck in a rut and bring together a community that wants more than a perfectly curated feed of eye candy. Sometimes you just got to throw it out there and see where it goes!

Weekend Round Up: July 26-28

Weekend Summer AdventuresJuly has been a whirlwind. Lots of great posts coming up featuring some of the events Sam and I have been up to. Until then, we wanted to share our crazy weekend filled with dog training for our lovable Willie Nelson, making shrubs with Emily Ho from Roots & Marvel at Poketo to whiskey floats in DTLA, followed the next day by fresh ruby red grapefruit champagne punch for Caddyshack presented by Cinespia at Hollywood Forever (recipe to come!). What has your July been like? Trying to cram all those summer events in before hibernation? Fill us in on what you have going on.
