Girlfriend Weekend - Los Angeles

It's a long over due post, in fact I have a couple post back logged that I'm ready to share this week. First things first, girlfriend weekend. Our 3rd annual college girlfriends get-together happened last weekend. I had the honor of hosting this year's at our place in LA. It really was too hard to show them all my favorite spots in one weekend, yet we tried to jam as much in as possible. 

Below is a little bit of the ground we covered...



Our first night all together, we headed to Gjelina in Venice for our opening ceremonies to the weekend



Malibu Country Mart - Cafe Habana for Lunch (one of my favorites from living in New York) It's all about the cuban corn!





Waited out the traffic to head downtown to Bottega Louie for a late breakfast. Munching on colorful macarons and sweet beignets


Brentwood Country Mart - Of course had to show them Sugar Paper


The Eveleigh in West Hollywood for dinner, a secret garden in the middle of sunset avenue. Charming outdoor patio with farm fresh food. 



Sprinkles Ice-cream in Beverly Hills
Stacie and Nicole's families came to meet them in California at the end of weekend, to prolong their stay and head to Disneyland, of course. 

Sunday in Manhattan Beach. The girls grabbed dinner at MB Post, while I caught up at home with Joel. Such a trooper, clearing out the house for 7 girls. Leaving one bathroom, he didn't seem to hesitate to crash elsewhere :) 

I love how playing tour guide makes you see your own city with new eyes, and has you appreciating where you live. Sometimes I get into these moods where I really miss New York. Although, I just need a weekend like this one to remember how exceptional my town is, all it has to offer. (Despite the hours of traffic on end) I love that Los Angeles, has a neighborhood for everyone. Different pockets of flavor. Whether you are heading the beach in Malibu, flea market in pasadena, concert downtown, bike ride in venice, dinner in santa monica. It's a city you can get it all, including unreal weather (that we take for granted).  So when you're college bests come to town, its really the icing on the cake.

  6. nothing has ever looked so fun, and as a sidenote, you and your friends cannot possibly be real. NOBODY HAS THAT MANY PRETTY FRIENDS WHO ARE ALL SO CUTE AND STYLISH, looking through the pictures it looked like a magazine shoot! You guys are all insanely well-dressed with all this long pretty hair and. That one picture with 4 of you in various florals and greens at Eveleigh?! Seriously adorable.
