going green

My first day back in California was a great success - healthy breakfast of an acai bowl at Juice It Up (why have I waited this long to have an acai bowl?!), early bird splurge on a mani/pedi (hello red nails!), pit stop at South Coast Plaza, breezy drive to LA with the boy listening to funny songs on the radio, late lunch at Street, wandering around Melrose, random thrist-quench stop at Urth Caffé, browsing the spring shoe sales in Beverly Hills, amazing dinner with the boy at Melisse to start off my weekend birthday celebration. I'm off to bed but there are many great food posts to come!

p.s. thank you to maria for recommending the green tea blended boba drink at Urth - I was all smiles gulping it down!
