best friend adventures in good 'ol californ-i-ay

i spent friday and saturday with my best friend, clarrisa. we've known each other since before we were 2 years old, grew up a couple streets away from one another, and were practically inseparable until my family moved 3 years ago. we don't get to hang out that often, so this was much needed.

the purpose of this "bff day"--as we like to call them--was to hit up sprinkles, the famous cupcake place in beverly hills.

...and honestly, (maybe it was all the hype? perhaps our expectations were too high? maybe we were just sad that we had to wait in a really long line that went past the entrance?) the cupcakes weren't as good as we thought they'd be. i got red velvet and vanilla with chocolate frosting sprinkles. they were okay, but i wish they had put more frosting on top.

i much prefer nadia cakes in palmdale. their cupcakes are prettier, moister, taste better, and less expensive too! plus, they have a wider variety of flavors which change every day. oh well. at least we got to experience this trendy l.a. place, you know?

after we got cupcakes, we walked around rodeo drive and all the fancy shops. it wasn't busy at all, which was good because it's usually filled with tourists.

after we got tired wandering around the streets, we couldn't remember how to get back to where we had parked, near sprinkles. we were walking around for about a half hour, lost, but clarrisa's gps on her phone helped us, haha.

we also went to the americana in glendale which is always fun (and always crowded!) to eat dinner at the cheesecake factory. yum! no pictures of the food, just the drinks (i had a peach bellini and she had some strawberries & cream thing that tasted really weird). we were way too hungry to remember to snap pictures of our actual food when it came.
