First of all I just want to apologize for not posting recently; I was in the process of finding in apartment in LA and moving and it has not been easy to say the least! But anyways, this past week was very exciting for me because my best friends were in town from New York and I enjoyed their company tremendously, as I always do. My favorite thing in life is being around great friends, enjoying good food, and living the pura vida. Every time my lovely soul sista Valentina comes in town we have certain traditions we love to maintain. Going out on the boat to Emerald Bay, swimming in the deep blue, spending a day at the beach accompanied by Bear Flag fish tacos, taking a trip out to Catalina and stopping to have a buffalo burger, and going out at night, this time around to the ever rad BoatHouse Collective to listen to some groovy tunes. On one of their last night nights here we took a little duffy boat out (electric cruiser), ordered from one of our favorite spots (Ho Sum Bistro), brought some beer and wine and did a bay cruise around the Newport Harbor. Duffies are so awesome to be with friends because they are basically meant for hanging out with great company, enjoying a glass of wine, and listening to music (in our case blasting the music and dancing like fools). As always I had a magical time with them and will visit them next in New York! LOVE YA CHICOS <3 What does la pura vida mean to you?
