The Ultimate LA Girls Weekend

Ultimate Girls Weekend - Header

I feel like these days we are always so busy… running around, working on our goals, living life to the fullest, but sometimes it is great to take a step back and have a nice girls weekend!

When my best friend Becca (have you seen her home tour!?!) texted me that she had a free weekend to come to LA, the ultimate LA girls weekend was in the books.
In my opinion, girls weekends should revolve around catching up and cultivating your friendships and food… food and wine are key ingredients.

Becca had a late flight into LA and I knew we would have so much to catch up on so we went back to my apartment for wine, cheese, and chips & salsa. Actually now that I think about it, chips and salsa has had a large part in our friendship.

On Saturday, Becca needed to hit up her beloved 901 Salon and I got a run in before we met back up for tea at Alfred Tea Room to begin our adventures for the day. Alfred’s Tea Room is located on Melrose Place and is so #instagramworthy and I love anything pink!

After some boba tea and some photos we decided we needed real food. We had lunch on the rooftop of EP/LP then hit the Culver City Hotel for happy hour. There is nothing better for a LA girls weekend than dining al fresco! For dinner we walked to Cannibal LA, a new hot spot in Culver City and then took the train back to my house to end the evening watching Ali Wong and laughing together.


Sunday we met up for brunch with our friend Julia at Sunny Spot. Sunny Spot is perfect for an amazing brunch and I love that their bottomless brunch includes mimosas, bloody mary’s and a rum punch… so you can change it up a bit. The rest of the day was spent hanging at my house binge watching You’re the Worst and making homemade pizza before Becca had to return to San Francisco. All in all I think we had a great girls weekend!

What do you think makes a great girls weekend? Let me know in the comments!

BRUNCH // Malibu Cafe

Hey there Brunchers! Well this blog is called Bad Wolf Brunch – so it is high time I start talking about it. Basically I love brunch and in Los Angeles we have plenty of opportunity to never repeat a place. However on President’s Day I went to Malibu Cafe with Becca from Leather.Lace&Cupcakes and this will become a repeat location!
True Life: My Best Friends are fashion bloggers…
So back to brunch – Becca and I wanted to get together because I apparently do not live in LA during the month of February (I am off to Florida in 2 days) and we needed a little girl time.
I am all about little city escapes and the Malibu hills make you feel a world away from Los Angeles.
We had to drive about 45 minutes but it gave us plenty of time to catch up.

We started the “The Board” – Becca and I have a thing for charcuterie boards – and a yummy strawberry basil cocktail… So yummy. We had a lovely lunch of salads and fried chicken and ended with roasting s’mores… literally could not be more perfect.
After we finished our meal we went exploring and even took a row boat out for a bit.
I mean really – how cute and perfect is this place.
Just trying to get some sun here people!

Ok… ok… I will be adding more brunching fun to the blog I promise! If you are good I might share some Disney World Brunch gloriousness!!! Ta Ta for now!
