we spent most of sandra's birthday in Santa Monica, it was very serene and lovely there compared to Hollywood. The shopping center was ideal, they had a Mango and a bigger H&M and Urban Outfitters. it was great!
we spent the evening in Hollywood - we ate some delicious sushi and then hit up a local bar. i was dead tired by the end of the night but it was worth it. good times. happy birthday mi nina!
