This past weekend in Santa Monica was the perfect balance between work and play. I spent Saturday at the Independent Spirit Awards for work and then spent the rest of my time eating my way through the city (it appears from photos above!)
I had amazing Huevos Rancheros at the Loews where I stayed, tasted the most amazing dessert at Gjelina (a salted caramel pot de creme!), had margaritas watching the sunset, brunched at Shutters on the Beach, downed a coffee from my favorite, Peet’s and treated myself to pastries and macarons at Bottega Louie and enjoyed all of these things with great family & friends who live in the area. As I sat watching the sunset last night from the beach by myself, I realized I am definitely most at home in California (as much as I love New York).
Hope you all enjoyed the weekend! And for all who commented or tweeted at me from this, I so, so appreciate you.
