Every year my friends and I take one weekend off from our busy schedules to dine, laugh, pamper, and relax with one another. We ALWAYS choose California as our destination! Something about life there is so thrilling, yet so relaxing. It also doesn’t hurt that the shopping is PRIME….
I wish I could say we do different things each year, but we don’t. Over the past few years, we’ve found our favorite restaurants, hotels, beaches and entertainment. We make sure to spend time in Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Malibu. I have a lot of friends in Hollywood, and it is nice to see them face to face for a change as well!
We are obsessed with the Beverly Hills Hotel. Not just because it is a trendy/famous hotel, but because they take such good care of us all weekend long. The La Prairie Spa there is a dream. I always make sure to book at least one appointment during my trip, if not two! The facials are my absolute favorite. I feel extra rejuvenated afterword and the glow is better than any serum you can buy!
We love to dine at Nobu, Spago, and Mastro’s Steakhouse. If you have even a day to spend in Beverly Hills, you MUST try at least one of these out. If you’re a sushi gal, Nobu is a no-brainer. It is hands down the best sushi I’ve ever had. I also adore Mastro’s because they have everything and anything. One of my friends is a vegan, and even she loves it there!
We always wish we had spent more days on the beach while being here, but there’s just so much to do that we are lucky to squeeze in a day. We used to just lounge by the pool if we wanted to catch some sun, but we’ve been starting to spend more time at the Santa Monica Pier.
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Chat soon.
