This weekend, in a few words.

Monday, November 9, 2009

This weekend was filled with many mini unexpected and lovely adventures; late night sushi at my absolute favorite spots downtown, R23, a surprise coffee date with Ms. B, a bike ride adventure with my one and only bike gang member around the sivlerlake reservoir (and with a stop at lamill for lavender infused lemonades, bien sur!!), cooking class at Hipcooks where I learned how to make the perfect raspberry lemon drop cocktail, a bottomless mimosa brunch at Los feliz' new hang-out Rockwell and an unexpected adventure to Venice in search of some vintage books! And mayyybe some pizza. Oh, and lots and lots of reading. Here are some Polaroids I snapped during these glorious yet few hours. I can't believe it's Monday already and I'm dreaming about what next weekend will bring. A happy Monday, to you all!

Ms. Lulu in her shades and leather jacket PRE reservoir bike ride! (you can't see the sole feather dangling from only one ear which was truly my favorite part of her outfit!)
