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!

Challenge: The August Break /// Day 1: Breakfast

The August Break: Day1 - Breakfast July was all about keeping busy and adventures, almost to the point of burn out (luckily the woods are calling and soon we'll be taking a much needed T/O with Mother Nature. In order to slow down life just a tad, I signed up for Susannah Conway's The August Break. This month long exercise is filled with 31 days of awesome subjects to shoot, like day one: breakfast. I couldn't resist posting the Fried Chicken and Waffles from Messhall. Located in Los Feliz, this kitchen has a delicious brunch and the cocktails are super fresh and bombastic. Interested in seeing what else I'll be posting? Join in by following us on instagram and be sure to head over Messhall to get your brunch on this weekend. While your at it, don't forget to sign up for The August Break too.
