Last year we headed to L.A. to hike Runyon, play at The Abbey, and cocktail at the famed Tropicana bar at the The Roosevelt for Valentine’s Day weekend. This V-Day weekend we wanted to see Santa Barbara, a place everyone said we’d love and boy were they right.
If you haven’t been, Santa Barbara is like one big commercial for life itself. We walked around wondering why everyone in the whole world didn’t live there. State street is the main drag that spans up from the wharf into town a few miles and is lined with various boutiques, restaurants, and everything in between (like a Scientology center – welcome to California!) Though we didn’t hit up any wineries (we’ve done the Napa thing a few times when we lived up in NoCal), we stayed busy walking, eating, and tourist-ing. Here are a few highlights.
You know how they say people start to look like their dogs after a while? I think Mike and I are doing that. We’re wearing the *same* shirt and I don’t mean that it looks like the other shirt, I mean that I saw it in the men’s section and loved it so much that I sold Mike on getting one then I grabbed one too. We’re also wearing Ray Bans. We thought nothing of it until I was downloading the pics and thought, ‘wow, how creepy,’ just 2 A-Holes checking out the Mission.
I hit up Sephora in SB and found a few things I can’t wait to show you next time, I know that an L.A trip to Friends is still needed so I can get the really hard to find professional stuff like Visiora and Stilazzi brushes. That’s where the real fun begins.
