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!

A day in venice

venice 009

I was down in LA for business last week, so I decided to venture over to Venice, for a little window shopping.  Venice is a very unique and artistic city, with so many bright colors everywhere.  I love it!  It’s such a happy place, with happy people, and very cool architecture.

I was able to spend the day in Venice, with a good friend who lives in the area.  She shared her knowledge of all the gorgeous trees in Venice.   They are plum trees, completely red, actually, more maroon, full of bushy leaves and small Persian plums.  She was picking them like crazy, and I was eating them like crazy.  I also checked out Aviator Nation, this place is unreal.  I wanted one of everything.  Paige Mycoskie, is the brains behind this store.  She has one of the coolest places on Abbot Kinney Blvd.  Paige has purchased her own factory, which produces all of her stores clothing.  Made in the USA!!! Just what I like.  We wrapped our day up with a quick trip by the marina in Marina Del Rey.  It was the perfect ending to a fun day!

Thanks, Venice.  I’ll be back soon.
