This year’s birthday has been one of my favorites yet. I speak as if it’s ongoing, because in my family we celebrate the birthday month. In place of one big blowout bash, we’ll usually do small get togethers with friends and family throughout the month.
To kick-off my 29 days of celebrating 29 years, Andrew and I took a trip down to LA. Surprisingly, LA is new territory for us. I usually only go for work and Andrew had never been. We stayed at the Beverly Hilton and focused most of our visit on the surrounding area, with a few pit stops in Santa Monica and Downtown LA. The Grammys were taking place that weekend, and our hotel was actually hosting Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party. The energy was high and it was kind of fun to spot celebrities around as this is a rarity in San Francisco.
We’re basically becoming pros at packing as much as possible into a weekend getaway (see DC Trip), and LA was no exception. A few of our favorites places on our visit were: Runyon Canyon, Mr. Chow’s, Wally’s in Beverly Hills, Craig’s for the cocktails, and shopping in West Hollywood. We’re already looking forward to our next visit!
These pants are my new obsession! As a short-ish chic, I usually shy away from anything long and wide-legged. But I got a little brave, decided to try on these pants at Nordstrom, and instantly fell in love. With the right platform shoe (becoming hugely popular this season btw), these pants fit perfect. And nothing says Birthday/Valentine’s weekend in LA, like a sweet little off the shoulder blush top.
