10 am Your phone vibrates and you have a text message. See ya at Crema in an hour. Love you guuuurl.11:10 am You order a honey vanilla latte at the cafe and spot your friend by the window. Squealing ensues and gossiping begins, of course. You both decide to split a cupcake because what are besties for? For going all out. Duh.12:30 pm You and your bff hop into your car (or bikes, if that’s your thing). The day has been planned out down to the minute. Next stop? Shwop (Haven't heard? It's new...get details here). Your closet’s been looking a little bland and you want something with sequins to jazz it up.1:45 pm You walk out of Shwop with a couple staple pieces for fall, a gorgeous Kate Spade bag and a backless dress for whenever.... I am totally borrowing that bag for my next date, your bff says.1:50 pm That one cupcake wasn’t enough. Time for a late SE Asian lunch at Vivo.2:00 pm Over a plate of Khao Soi (Northern Thai curry) and Singapore Noodles you chat with the regulars at Vivo. It’s right across from Sassy’s and there’s plenty of talk on the neighborhood happenings.3:05 pm Ok, ok. Enough eating. Now for a real treat.3:25 pm Driving up to NW to stop in at Tao Nails & Spa. Champagne manicure? Yes, please!4:00 pm Feeling rejuvenated, you guys walk down 23rd. You scope out hot guys (lots and lots), scope out makeup at Blush Beauty Bar and gawk at the deals on shoes at Ether.6:00 pm Drinks at Bartini are in order. Overwhelmed by choices you and your bestie agree to try two each. You’ve got your eye on the Spicy Mango and the Snickertini.6:30 pm You’re feeling that first martini meaning it’s time for a heart to heart.9 pm It’s 9 already? You have to get up early tomorrow for a yoga class and definitely don’t want to be hungover. A little tipsy, you decide you better get some more food in you. Cheese fondue for two, please.9:30 pm Your friend offers you the last piece of bread to dip in the remaining cheddar fondue. You aww. Thanks girl. You’ve always got my back.
