Holiday weekends are everything right?! I had such a variety of little adventures. I saw 50 Shades of Grey (by myself) along with every other girl in the world and found it to be just as awkward as the first twilight movie, but at some level still entertaining. I popped by the PaperCrown and Rifle Paper Co. pop up shop at the grove, and when I say popped in I mean I waited for 90 minutes to get in. I bought the floral top I'm wearing in the picture above along with a pair of matching shorts, and the most precious white dress that I can't wait to shoot for the blog! It was obviously also wonderful to be in the same room as LC... don't tell me you you weren't a fan of hers from day one of Laguna Beach (Let the rain fall down and wash my feet....that song plays in my head everytime I think about that show). I saw American Sniper (I actually never go to the theaters, so two movies in 1 weekend is insane ) and sat next to the most adorable old man who ended up wanting to chit chat with me after the movie and told me some very entertaining stories. He used to be a manager for a lot of major rock and roll stars. He just had such a sweet spirit that really touched my heart at the moment. I hope he has a great week. 

The most exciting thing I did was head to Malibu Cafe with one of my besties Mallory from BadWolf Brunch. I stumbled upon it on Google, and it looked too cute online not to try! This must be the best kept secret in Malibu, I have never heard anyone mention it before but it is hands down my favorite place in Los Angeles. I felt like I was on a magical vacation and I just wanted to skip around and throw flowers everywhere. We brunched, we walked around the grounds, snapped a few photos, and rowed a boat in the cute little lake. Clearly a successful Monday. 

But really I highly highly recommend taking a day trip over to the cafe. I'm pretty sure this would also be a magical wedding spot. I can never pass up a good cheese board when im with Mal, I also got their signature cocktail #1 it had gin, strawberries, lime, and light and dark balsamic vingerette I think, got a yummy salad, and the highlight of the meal was roasting s'mores!! They were soooo yummy in my tummy. I'm trying to get sweets out of my system, because Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and I am giving up desserts (ahhh wish me luck!!!). 

Do you have a best kept secret in your town or city?! I'd love to hear about it. Hope you beauties had as nice of a weekend as I did.

P.S. I couldn't find my PaperCrown top online anywhere but I put together a selection of floral tops that I currently am loving.
