We took a girls’ trip to the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa…and this happened
On the golf course at Ojai Valley Inn and Spa
My friend Robin’s birthday was a few days ago (how old are we saying you are, Robin? 25? Let’s go with 25), and so a few of my girls and I took a trip to Ojai. Silliness ensued. I’ll do a real post later (actually, I plan on pitching an article somewhere, but either way, you’ll get the full scoop here eventually), but in the meantime, voila…
Recreating the Vanity Fair Hollywood cover
I present to you Dorks Gone Wild:
Makeup? We don't need no stinkin' makeup.
Enjoying a drink on "campus" at Jimmy's at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. Look how well behaved these darlings are.
Three drinks and two hours later? Classiness out the window. Here we are, stalking fellow Ojai Valley Inn-er John Krasinski.
Here's the Spa, across the way from our room. See that top floor? That's where all the celebrities stay and get their secret, private treatments. Rumor is, Katy Perry and John Mayer were there the previous weekend.

...And then looks unimpressed while Robin does wine-yoga in the jacuzzi.
We make celebrity friends! With Anatol Yusef (aka Meyer Lansky) from Boardwalk Empire.
I decided to do a technology cleanse for the weekend: ZERO phone or internet from Friday night through Sunday afternoon. I'm reading Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan on our porch at the Ojai Valley Inn.
No girls' weekend would be complete without a boy to crush on, so we'd like to give an official shout-out to bellhop Corey, our chauffeur and designated flirt for the weekend.
Believe it or not, we did not just laze around like jerks and drink on this trip. We also biked through town!
But, yeah, okay--it was mostly drinking. Here we are doing the wine and beer tastings at Ojai Beverage Company, post-bikes.

Wine tasting? Yes, please.
After a few delicious glasses of pinot at the Ojai Vineyard Wine Tasting Room. Wish you were here!
