Today I needed some fresh inspiration. I wanted to get out of the city. With its 50 different types of wood and Art Deco style, for Long Beachians, the Queen Mary is the perfect place to feel like you left and gone somewhere without actually going anywhere! It is just around the corner, across the water. It was especially exquisite this time of year with its gigantic Christmas tree in the main shopping hall.
This week I would like to formally introduce Pamela Trujillo. Not only does she model for White Purls, she is an expert Mixologist and well known among Long Beach's cocktail scene. Her bartending style marries new concepts with old techniques while staying true to her El Salvadorian roots.
