The weekend before Labor Day my lovely friends came to visit me in sunny California. We had a relaxing weekend at Chateau Marmont, hanging by the pool and just catching up. We all met in Charleston, SC where I started this business and they all inspired me in the process. Chassity was how I learned about what a blog is! I’m so lucky to have such good girlfriends who will make the far trip to see me in my new element…LA! Miss them already..love you girls!
We all have our own businesses and to be able to talk with another in a similar boat is soo nice:
Sally King Benedict is an amazing artist – see for yourself on her website
Jane Pope Cooper designs beautiful delicate jewelry – you can shop it here
Chassity Evans writes the incredible lifestyle blog Look Linger Love …she makes me want to shop so watch out!
Even though I didn’t travel far, being away with my friends for a relaxing girls’ weekend was just the thing I needed before summer ends and reality sets in again. We ate dinner at my favorite spots; the farm shoppe and locanda portefino….and new for me The Chateau restaurant (yum). The Farm Shop is at the Brentwood country mart (my fav shopping destinations as well) and it’s sooo sooo good! I think the girls enjoyed it as much as I did. Then Locanda Portefino is my all time favorite Italian restaurant that has been describes as best in the US by Italians:) ( I have been going for 10 years!) Ummm makes my mouth water just talking about it. Anyways, if you are in LA I highly recommend those two…highly!
We shopped a little too..Sally scored a vintage Celine at the Decades ! Sooo good!
What did you do to celebrate the last days of summer?
