La Jolla, CA and I were a match made in heaven for several reasons:
1) The hotel does NOT have shampoo that turns my hair into gummy worms (thanks, Hilton Hawaiian Village...). Instead, the hotel has all Philosophy bath products. Hopefully the cleaning ladies won't see all the bottles that I've stashed away in my suitcase!
3) UTC shopping center. Home of three of my all-time favorite stores: Chuao Chocolates, Splendid, and the Body Shop. Chuao Chocolates has all sorts of delicious and unusual chocolate flavors -- maple bacon anyone? I settled for a hot chai with cream and a mini bar of Salted Chocolate Crunch (dark chocolate with little croissant breadcrumbs in it). Splendid has the softest, simplest, most flattering and comfortable shirts in the world -- there isn't a Splendid store back home so I had to stock up. I know the Body Shop is EVERYWHERE. But today I got 3 body scrubs for free (buy three get three free) and I've never been more excited in my life (I have a different scrub for every day of the week!).
4) This is the final, yet most important reason that La Jolla and I were meant to be. La Jolla is home to my favorite restaurant on Earth: Bernini's Bistro. I dream of their perfectly charcoal grilled chicken on a
My mom ordered the Breakfast Crepes, which were out of this world delicious (I ended up stealing one!). Perfectly sweet crepes stuffed with eggs, bacon, tomatoes, and mushrooms. This is a dish I have to learn how to recreate at home.
I ordered my favorite salmon salad. Their salmon is so succulent it literally melts in your mouth. Plus the lemon dressing is otherworldly.
