Last weekend I made a quicky to LA to celebrate one of my favorite friend's birthday. She booked the MR.C hotel which is from the famed Cipriani brothers, all suites with views of Beverly Hills. I had a couple of plastic surgery consults after arriving then a delicious lunch at Fred's at Barneys. Wow, what a view if you haven't experienced dining there! That night was dinner at the new hot spot Norah then on to a young hip rooftop bar E.P.&L.P.. The next day we lunched at Chateau Marmont and then some more shopping down Rodeo Drive before heading to dinner at Ysabel in West Hollywood with a night cap back at our hotel! Last day I met the girls for breakfast then parted ways; I then met other friends at The Ivy for the best enchiladas and then headed back home. What a whirlwind trip, but I'm headed back for more fun in two weeks - can't wait. In the meantime, I'll keep California dreaming!
