The Perfect Brunch Date in LA

EventsKimberly HeimbachComment

I love when things are planned out and this date experience is everything a girl could hope for. Brunch bites, wine tasting with a sommelier, rooftop deck with a view and custom watercolor portraits (by yours truly) of you and your date!

It has been so fun partnering with DateNightVIP for their brunch date experiences. It’s very bachelor-esque, if you watch the show you know what I mean. This date will leave you with all the feels.

When you arrive, you and your date will pick up a glass of sparkling rosé as you're escorted to our terrace with a beautiful view where I will paint a custom watercolor portrait for you to take home. This can be a fun surprise for your date!


There is a classic games table and DateNight conversation cards to get the most of your experience. While illustrating the guests I overheard how much they were loving the questions on the cards!

Enjoy the view as a Nocking Point sommelier will comes by and pours table-side tastings of their lighter varietals for you as you relax with your date. Bonus, at the end of the date you get to take home some goodies including a bottle of Nocking Point wine!


There is still spots available for the upcoming DatNightVIP “Wine and Watercolor Portraits” brunch. Check out the dates and times here and let me know if I will see you there!

P.S. If you want to hear more about DatNightVIP you can hear it from one of the founders, Ashton Kutcher!

Ladyfolk Studio Watercolor and Wine workshop with Eberjey

I love sharing my inspiration and creativity!

So I was very excited when Eberjey asked me to host a Watercolor and Wine workshop for there “Be Inspired” series in Newport Beach. If you haven’t yet visited Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach, where Eberjey is, then you are missing out! It is such a cute collection of boutiques, cafes and restaurants, all sitting along the beautiful Newport Beach Harbor. Some of my favorites there including Eberjey is the newly opened Malibu Farm, Zinque, the book store and Le Labo.

I love the inspiration behind Eberjey’s “Be Inspired” in-store events…

Eberjey is more than the soft cozies you never want to take off. We’re about embracing passions, exploring limitless creativity & sharing everyday moments with our customers & community. Whether you want to further an existing skill or learn something completely new, join us at one of our retail locations for a special event that promises to be enriching. From intimate shopping nights to workshops, panel discussions & more, we invite you to come BE INSPIRED & enjoy our retail experience!

Ladyfolk Studio Watercolor and Wine workshop with Eberjey Newport Beach

During the evening of my “Be Inspired” workshop we talked about letting go and using intuition to guide us to create something uniquely beautiful with watercolor. I always remind my workshop guests, art is not about creating the exact same thing as someone else. Watercolor painting does really require a sense of surrendering and improvising when things don’t go as planned, especially for beginners. All the ladies really displayed individuality in color preferences and brush techniques that we went over and I think all the watercolor paintings came out so pretty!

Rosé wine was definitely the variety of choice for the end-of-summer night but white and red were also available for tasting along with a perfect selection of snacks. All of this supported the relaxed and inspiring vibe for the evening.

It was a lovely group of women who spent the evening with me at Eberjey relaxing and getting inspired painting palm leafs, sipping wine and shopping in the beautiful store. If you aren’t familiar with the brand Eberjey, let me tell you they are known for there super soft must-have pajamas. They also have a variety of swimwear, loungewear, and the cutest little girl collection.
