Brunch at The Four Seasons




We were so lucky to get to experience a brunch at The Four Seasons
in Westlake Village. It was amazing sitting on the patio, enjoying the
company of friends, the food and the spectacular garden.




I really enjoyed the serenity of the garden. No wonder it
is a spa/wellness hotel.



My first Mimosa before heading into the buffet. Can you
think of a better way to spend a sunday?


The brunch is marvelous with a great selection. Be sure to get there
hungry, so you have room for all the fantastic food like panckakes,
mini toast, salads, sushi (yum), lobster, desserts and so much more..



I decided to sample all the different food with just a small piece
of each. That was a great idea, and I was very happy with my
4 small servings. At our table, my husband won hands down
with 6 trips to the buffet.




Of course we had to have another round of that amazing champagne.



Having fun.



My new beloved Pucci shoes. These were a steal at Wasteland
the other day.

I'm so glad you got a chance to try out brunch at the Four Seasons. My boyfriend and I went to the one in Santa Barbara a while ago and it was the best buffet I've ever had!

Such lovely photos Silje - looks like you had an amazing time! You look positively gorgeous in that dress and I love your purse! I bought a really nice purple Chanel-esque purse a few days ago but it would be so great to own the real thing.

divine lady and food! oh I love seeing you in that dress with those pastel yellow shoes. Very summery. I bet you're all rugged up in Oslo now! :)

I'm impressed with the new header images, Silje. I'm so proud!

Now your questions about 'chopping head'. Picasa is a little too stupid when it comes to bordering. It just mechanically puts the border around it and you do not have any control over it. The best way is to put plenty of space when taking photos. 3rd rule comes to into play. I don't know if you have heard of it. For example, in Garance Dore's pictures you can see about 1/3 of vertical space is taken by surroundings (2/3 being the subject). Does it make sense? That's how her pictures always look very interesting and balanced. That way you'd never have that head chopping problem.

Another thing you can do is adding some additional space around your existing pictures in other editing program. It's simple enough but if you haven't used anything in the past it might be a bit of challenge. Why don't you send me your images. It will only take me a couple of seconds to fix. :) Ciao
