I made a quick trip to Los Angeles for a few days in November to meet the team at Citizens of Humanity. They had set up a few days of getting to know LA with everything from locally famous food trucks, dinners at Mozza and Mr Chows, and even learning to surf at Malibu with Kalani Robb. By learning to surf I definitely mean failing miserably and never actually standing up once, but having hysterical laughing fits in doing so. My beautiful friends Andy and Rich were there too, in which we got to have some down time together enjoying the sunshine (knowing I was heading back to freezing NYC), playing tourists and an adorable last night together at The Ivy.
