Whenever we are blessed with such a picture-perfect weekend (which is pretty often here in Southern Cali) I get extremely snap-happy. The weekend was spent doing a little bit of everything but mainly – there was lots of indulging in good food.
I started the weekend off right by getting a much-needed haircut and color spruce up. You know how you’re supposed to get trims every 4-6 weeks or so? Yeah, I haven’t gotten a trim since last year so this was a big deal. A visit to the new Helmut Lang boutique on Melrose is always a good idea. Even though the trip across town is a pain, especially dealing with weekend traffic, the eye candy hanging off the racks is not to be missed. Sunday called for lots of good food and walking around the neighborhood. GJelina in Venice serves up a truly spectacular brunch – the parmesan and herb fingerling potatoes with truffle oil are nothing short of heavenly. And yes, those buckwheat pancakes are just as delicious as they look. A trip to Venice is not complete without an Intelligentsia coffee and a quick stop at Firefly where I scored some of that Washi Tape I keep hearing about. The rest of the day was spent on a leisurely walk with the dogs and preparing for the upcoming week. What did everyone else do over the weekend? Anything fun?
