The DO’s & DONT’S of Californication..

..according to Eats From The Oil Patch.

Ground Rules:

1. Calories don’t count on vacation.

2. I workout to go on vacation, I don’t go on vacation to workout.

3. It’s completely acceptable to have a drink before 12 pm on vacation.

DO NOT.. ever say no to free wine. Thank-you west jet for starting our trip off right.

DO NOT.. take directions from someone whose english is questionable. If you do, you might find yourself ending up in a questionable part of town.

DO.. rent the cutest one bedroom shoe box to share with your bff. Hotels are over rated and over priced.

DO.. pig out on the whole foods salad bar for your first meal, even if it does cost $20. And the proceed to wander around this amazing place for an hour. Side note: we don’t have a whole foods where I live. Sad times.

DO.. make the trip to Santee Alley {Fashion District}. Try and use the washrooms before hand, it costs 50 cent to use the washrooms in the alley and they are worse than any bathroom I entered in Mexico.

DO.. over indulge in $6 bottles of wine before dinner. Then proceed to drink more wine at dinner.

DO.. buy the dress you pinned on pinterest!!!! How often is it that you actually buy/make/do the things you pin on pinterest?

DO NOT.. say no to another round during happy hour and DO laugh at the fact you spent more on food than booze. $3 sangrias, don’t judge me.

DO.. check out The Bungalow in Santa Monica. This is by far the coolest bar I have ever been in.

DO NOT.. choose a salad for your hangover meal. C’mon.. where’s the carbs, and CHEESE.

DO NOT, no matter how hung over you are, skip dinner on the last night of vacation.

DO go celebrity hunting in Hollywood.

DO eat at a restaurant simply because you seen it on The Real Housewives.

IMG_6977

DO contemplate your choice of country to live in based on California alcohol prices.. {side note: a 2’6 sells for $22 in Canada)

This last one is an absolute must.

DO ENJOY YOURSELF. Have a freaking blast. You’re on vacation, all your problems can wait till Monday.
