Several days ago, my sister and I spent the day at Greystone Mansion, one of our favorite spots in the city. It's hidden in the steep inclines of Beverly Hills and is open for anyone to wander. The gardens are vast and we always come across previously undiscovered corners. The thing about this odd place is that so many movies have been filmed there; Eraserhead, There Will Be Blood, and an episode of Knight Rider. I'll let you decide which is most prestigious (hint: it features a talking car).
I loved the strange plants that resembled coral. My dress even matched! Both dress and bag are from Zara, the glasses are self-modified.
We got an impressive view over the West side of Los Angeles, a sprawling flower field, and the vast front lawn which was wonderfully desolate. We're so used to being surrounded by millions of people, that it feels so special to find a quiet space.
Afterwards we went for food near Rodeo Drive (we didn't shop there, as that would be daft). Lately we've been eating at lots of vegan places since I gave up dairy. Because this cafe was in Beverly Hills, they go a step further and make it macrobiotic. It sounds rather fussy, but tasted so delicious! I had a club sandwich and Vanessa ordered a classic burger. Sometimes we're so American.
We ordered dessert too of course! If I could go back I would order 100 of these tarts and save them for each oncoming day. Oh, the life.
