The Getty Villa

On Saturday my friends Kathrin and Tiffany made their way up to Los Angeles for a girls' day/night. We headed to The Getty Villa in Malibu to get our culture on. Although we were super late and only had a little over an hour to explore the amazing artifacts, sculptures, and gardens, we did a pretty good job of squeezing it all in. The place is beautiful and overlooks the ocean. I can't wait to go back!


After experiencing all that class, we grabbed dinner at Duke's Malibu and took in the gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean, then balanced out the day by getting trashed...or at least I did. Tiffany best described the night by naming the shot we were taking as "summer shitshow". Indeed it was. I had my first hangover as a result, no bueno. I jinxed myself though because I was bragging that I'd never had one before. Regardless, it was a great time!

Tiffany, Kathrin, me

Your pictures from The Getty are GORGEOUS. Girl, stop fueling my need to get myself to Cali! Seriously - each and every one of those pictures is absolutely stunning.
And yay for summer shitshows (but boo hangovers - def no bueno!). It still sounds amazing - and girls nights are such a necessary part of life! :)
