Hey everyone, and happy Friday! I don't really have anything planned for this weekend except soccer practice, but hopefully it will be fun. This past week was my first week on summer vacation. I've been pretty busy; I went swimming, saw Now You See Me 2 (it was really good), went to a grad party, and went to Santa Monica!
How beautiful is the Santa Monica pier? I've lived in California my whole life and had never been, so we decided to give it a go! We had beautiful weather and going on a week-day was great because it seemed to be less crowded.
We did some shopping on 3rd Street Promenade, and I ventured into Club Monaco for the first time. It is absolutely adorable! I loved how bright it was and how they added pops of pink and blue. I didn't purchase anything, but I will definitely be back!
We stopped by the Santa Monica Farmer's Market and walked around. They had the prettiest flowers, and were only $5! Unfortunately, we took the train to Santa Monica, so it wasn't very practical to take them home. At least I got some pictures :)
For lunch we went to the cutest restaurant on 2nd Street. It just opened, and is seriously the best-designed restaurant I've seen. It's called Flower Child, and specializes in healthy vegetarian and vegan options, but you can add different "proteins" to your meals. The restaurant has a very happy, friendly atmosphere, and their food is super yummy! I can't wait to go back!
Have a great weekend!
