Straight from Australia, the babe-a-licious Bei Badgirl came to L.A. for a two-part visit back in May and June!
L.A. was her pit stop before heading out to a show in London. So we Cali girls gathered up our forces and made the most out of our International Girl Gang play dates.
It’s the gathering of the blondes!
We were all pretty tired because we had such a long wait to get seated. Nothing bad on B.A.D sushi’s part, there were a lot of people out that night.
It was really awesome to catch up with Bei. I haven’t seen her since the Sanrio 50th Anniversary parties. Being one of my favourite Aussies (and you know I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Aussie girls!) Bei always brings the party.
Seaweed Salad and the Playboy roll! These are two of my favorite things to gobble up at B.A.D Sushi.
We ate, drank, and socialized… and then went back to Jessica’s place for a bit of catch up on ‘GIRLS’!
Even Bella was interested!
The next day Bei and Izzy declared it Barbie Monday! I decided to be Vintage Barbie and doll up a bit.
I was meeting Bei and Izzy at Cafe 50′s, but while I was walking over Bei met Adam Sandler!! Isn’t that incredible? I go there all the time but I’ve never met anybody haha.
We had made plans to meet up with Gala later in the evening too, but since we finished with our late lunch a bit early… we went off to the Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade to do some shopping and hit up Happy Hour.
Bei, with her natural beach-babe good looks was a shoo-in for Beach Bunny Barbie. Izzy went for a more Metal Barbie look.
Funny enough, since my hair color had mostly washed out we looked like blonde-tourage.
After a few drinks and putting about, we were off to the beautiful Viceroy hotel to meet Gala!
This is the infamous green bathroom in the lobby of the Viceroy. It is quite stunning in person.
Bei and Gala were catching up, don’t they look so cute chatting?
After a few drinks and catching up, we had to run.
So we all went back to the washroom, since some of the other girls wanted to see how gorgeous it was. If any of you ever go to the Viceroy, seriously, this bathroom is worth checking out.
You would think after our food and drinks adventure, that we would have been full. But we weren’t.
We all had a solid craving for ramen, so we went back to Sawtelle and hit up Chabuya for some late night cheap ramen.
Then Bei was in town again for about a week or so in June, after returning from London. Before she said her official good byes, we caught up over some Meixcan food in Venice with Jessica and Rachel.
Remember this look? I was going for galactic waves. I bought myself a 3-barrel curling iron from goodwill and was testing it out.
Off we went to Lula Cocina Mexicano in Venice to have a nice Sunday brunch.
I got a very delicious pomegranate margarita along with some tamales. The colorful atmosphere of the restaurant really sell you on the ‘beach’ lifestyle.
After brunch we all said our goodbyes!
I really hope that I’ll get a chance to visit Australia one day and see Bei in her her natural state <3 Just gotta make that paper and save up!
Well I hope you guys enjoy my catch up posts. I apologize for the lag in blogging and updates, I am working on revamping the site and getting everything in order. I haven’t forgotten about everyone, thanks for reading!
