It was a hot, sticky weekend here in sunny Los Angeles. And that meant plenty of smoothies to be blended and sipped.
This Hottie Pink Ripe Raspberry smoothie made from fresh farmer's market berries was a treat this weekend. Smoothie recipes + my weekend in review!..
What I'm drinking this morning.. Monday morning starts with matcha.
I'm a creature of habit. The only way I want to start my week is with my Secret Ingredient Matcha Smoothie. I'm addicted to it. And many of you have emailed me saying you tried it once and love it too! So I guess I'm not alone.
Craving matcha too?.. click over to my Secret Ingredient Matcha Smoothie for my fave morning smoothie recipe of right now. Frosty green, Zenergizing bliss..
Or go raspberry pink..

How was your weekend? Mine was nice. Hot. But nice. There was plenty of brunching to be done - at Le Pain Quotidien. I love their Banana Maple Syrup + Pecan Oatmeal. Fruit salad. And those fluffy foamed soy lattes + agave syrup on top.
Le Pain Brunching..
Then Sunday was a busy (hot) farmer's market morning. So many peaches + plums + berries to be eaten this week...
I stopped into Kyle Richard's new Beverly Hills boutique Kyle by Arlene Too and actually ran into Kyle herself! Pretty cool. She was sweet. Sorry for the blurry cell pic..
But Nelly's weekend was quite different. Her advice...
(Stay in bed .. because once you are up .. you're up!) So that is exactly what she did...
Once she lifted herself out of bed .. she was into some sunbeam snoozes this weekend..
