LA for the day

la2 new

 

This past weekend we ventured down to Los Angeles for the day.  It was a last minute, lets jump in the car and go, type of thing.  Eleanor and I went with our good friend, while daddy worked.  There was an amazing event going on in Topanga Canyon, that I really wanted to go to, but, unfortunately we didn’t get to make it there. Although, we did make it to a few of my favorite places.  I’m such a creature of habit. I always go to my “favorites” when we go to LA.

We stopped at the general store, because need I say more. Then we made our way to lunch at the super healthy and yummy, Café Gratitude.  I like going to the one in Venice, because when I’m done, I walk across the street to Moon Juice.  Moon Juice, has every cosmic provision, juice, and any other holistic remedy you’re looking for.  I love everything about the company.  So, of course I picked up a bag of goodies to take home.  I even turned my girlfriend on to EVERYTHING they have to offer.  Now, the place that we stopped at last wasn’t exactly healthy, but I couldn’t resist.  I’ve pretty much been off of sugar since December, but I couldn’t help myself from stopping at Sprinkles. Truth be told, I ate two, and they’re NOT small. You only live once!

Basically, we ate our way through LA.  Such a fun day! I always feel like last minute ideas, are the best ideas.  Hope everyone has a great week!

Olvera Street

The other day my mom and I visited Olvera street.  Olvera street is in the oldest part of downtown Los Angeles.  They have lots of authentic Mexican food, festivities, and clothing.  We did a little shopping and enjoyed some yummy enchiladas and tamales.  I haven’t been there since I was a little girl, so it was fun to go back and visit.  I love LA for all of its little nooks and crannies, they are like little hidden gems.  If you get a chance to go, you should, it’s a piece of California history that is pretty amazing.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
