One of my absolute favorite things about Marina del Rey is the bike path thats right behind our apartment. It’s a 22 mile bike path all along the Los Angeles coastline, running all the way from Pacific Palisades down to Torrance, just past Redondo Beach.   We take a bike ride almost every single weekend usually to Santa Monica Pier (north) or Manhattan Beach (south) and we always make a pit stop for some lunch and wine. Totally one of my favorite things to do on the weekend and either north or south, its such a gorgeous ride along the beach! On this particular day we didn’t ride on the bike path, but rather walked up it a little bit and headed into the marina for dinner.

I’ve also been having a lot of fun lately with hats since my colorist told me that the sun will make my newly blonde locks turn brassy. This hat is from Cuyana, one of my absolute favorite brands — I love their “fewer, better” motto and minimalist mentality. I own a few of their products and I’m super lucky that one of their 2 stores (nationwide!) is 5 minutes away from me in Venice!

Its officially been almost three weeks since we moved to California and I must say they have flown by. Since we landed we’ve been non stop busy and I’m really hoping that things settle down soon. An idea of what we’ve been up to:

  • Visited with old friends
  • Made some new friends
  • Ate at In-n-Out burger
  • Went to a surprise party
  • Ate macarons at Bouchon Bakery
  • Toured a million apartments
  • Did laundry 50 times (we only have 1 suitcase of clothes!)
  • Went to an “unlimited mimosa” brunch
  • Decided on an apartment in Marina Del Rey
  • Ate at Blue Plate Taco… twice
  • Went hiking in the Pacific Palisades
  • Fired/Hired yet another car shipping company
  • Took a quick work trip to St. Louis
  • Highlighted my hair super blonde

I feel so disoriented and out of place, but we’re moving into our new apartment on Monday and I hope things start to settle down and feel normal soon.  I just got a box of clothes in the mail (thanks Kathy!!) and I can’t wait to finally wear something other than the same 2-3 things everyday.  And my car should be arriving soon! The new shipping company we found ships via boat through the Panama Canal — so I am just hoping that by end of week next week it shows up and it didn’t get lost in the Bermuda Triangle!! So here’s to a successful move-in week at our new apartment in Marina Del Rey!
