peppermint latte

hi ladies :) off we go on day six of the california reunion tour. we headed back down from the mountains and I made it over to the east bay in time for a little evening coffee with my lovely friend, Court. the best part about the next few days of photos are that everything still has that magical holiday feel, since all the decorations are left up through new years!
hence, the gorgeous light up tree outside of starbucks.
I rocked one of my black and white tie dye dresses with my boyfriend blazer since it wasn't that chilly outside. I was still experimenting with fun new ways to work my hair cut and I was totally adoring this style. it was parted on the side with part of it clipped back. I paired it all with my gray zara purse, and knee high boots and I was ready to go.
ready to go sip coffee that is.
peppermint latte, to be precise.
nothing else quite like it to get you in the holiday spirit.
I actually drink this glorious concoction for as long as I can get away with it. probably much too far into the spring season when my iced chai latte finally start calling my name.
pretty fountain, no? the east bay may be my personal favorite of the bay area. I will argue this fact.
ok, so here is my darling friend Court. isn't she gorgeous? well not only is she super sweet and fun, but she is a fellow theater junkie.
and one that is actually following her dream. Court lives in LA with her boy, and my good friend Ryan. they are, hands down, my favorite hollywood couple. they are both ridiculously talented. Court is an actress (um hi? she was in the movie fame!) and Ryan is a film maker, screen writer, and camera man extraordinare. not too mention they both can carry a sweet tune, and Ryan is quite the musician (he put out a cd, held concerts and sang at our wedding. swoon. he rocks).

anyways, it was super wonderful to catch up with her and have some theater-shop-talk-time. we gabbed about everything she is working on, and her upcoming workshops and auditions. before we knew it, we had been there for 3 hours! we are coffee shop queens. love you girl. :)

as we were leaving and went to snap some shots to commemorate the gab-fest, we ran into Colleen! lucky us! she is a photography student and also uber talented. she shot and edited these black and whites for us. she is a total doll.

happy middle of the week lovlies. I am finally getting around to unpacking from my crazy adventure, only to realize that I have to pack again next week. I feel like I am in a traveling whirl-wind. next up on the agenda is planning my east coast excursion. I am looking at sometime in march or april and stops will include D.C., New York, and Boston. If you are in those areas pleeeaaassee let me know, as I would love to meet up along my trip :).

stay tuned for friday's house post! cheers.
