I recently enjoyed The Curious Palate, a casual but delicious restaurant tucked away near the recently opened ArcLight Cinema on the 3rd level of Santa Monica Place. Excellent food, lovingly prepared, and not usually crowded, with a friendly staff who obviously really cares about presenting delicious, fresh tasting food.

I recently tried Birchbox and found it was very pleasant, for $10 a month they ship you a cool collection of five makeup, hair products, or other beauty supply samples each month. It's fun to look forward to, and you can cancel at any time; and also order more of something you like on their large, well-organized site. Visit Birchbox.com for more information or to try it out.
