sex and the city 2

June 23, 2010


When Elizabeth was in town the other week we got together with our other bestie Hanna to see Sex and the City 2. Before the show we got some drinks and a quick bite to eat at The Farm of Beverly Hills. It was a sunny LA afternoon so we sat outside. I love when the weather is like this!

Cornbread Muffins


Warm Pear and Brie Sandwich on Toasted Raisin Walnut Bread with Sweet Potato Fries

We weren't expecting the movie to be amazing {or better than the series}, but I think it could have been a little better. Did any of you see it? What did you think?

  1. Mara,

    Sweet potato fries are my favorite! What did you think of the movie? I have yet to see it.

  4. That food looks so good! I'm really thinking of not seeing the movie after so many bad reviews.

  5. You know I haven't seen it. I have not watched the series. The whole series is just a turn off for me I guess. Sorry it was a bit of a disappointment! It looks like a fun hang out with the girls though!

  6. it's nice to watch sex and the city with your girlfriends..personally, i don't really like sex and the city two. the story could have been better. some of the clothes they wore was really hideous looking. but that's just my opinion. i feel the 1st one was way better.

  7. I didn't see it but that food looks amazing! Wow- who knew sweet potato fries could look so yummy.

  8. My mother-in-law took me out for dinner and SATC 2 with her friends Tuesday night. Because so many people told me that the movie wasn't that great, my expectation was really low. Therefore, I didn't think it was all that bad! Yes, it could have been a little better, but I laughed a lot. Still those two movies can't beat the TV series..

  9. I haven't seen it yet :( But maybe someday! You girls look fab!

  10. Thanks a lot Mara--now I'm starving! Haha, I haven't seen it but I heard it was worse even than the first. Sorry to hear it!

  11. Oh my gosh, food porn in the extreme! I'm hungry now. Lovely dresses too.

  12. Love these pictures. It's always good to have a girls' night/day out and then hit the movies.
    I saw the movie. It was alright. I actually thought it was a little better than the first, then again I've read so many bad reviews my expectations were low. However both movies can never ever top the series! :)

    Have a great day Mara.

  16. The food looks amazing!

    I definitely thought it would be better. I was just saying that I think if they kept Aidan a surprise, it would have been HUGE. Like you would have just heard a GASP around the world, but they ruined that since you were able to predict what was going to happen.

    I laughed at some parts, I've loved Samantha and always will but I found most of it to be way too predictable.

  17. Oh man! That sandwich looks soooooooo good! Oh and I love that shade of nail polish you are sporting.

  18. You girls look so pretty and I agree...It could be better but I loved the outfits:) The girls always will be girls for me:) Have a wonderful day and see you soon:)

  19. Mara, I haven't seen it, but I haven't heard great things about it. I think I'll just stick with the TV show :)

    ps. Thanks so much for your kind words about my shop! It really means a lot to me :) ♥♥

  20. You ladies are so chic! So I actually hated the movie and found it to be quite racist. I loved the show and thought the first movie was okay, a nice finish to the whole story. This movie felt like too much and it actually made me despise all the characters except Miranda - she was decent in the film. And that is my review!

  21. Your food looks amazing!!! I haven't seen it yet but from what I've heard and reading this, I'm not expecting much.

  22. You guys are SO cute. I just keep the movies separate from the series. I just think, "this is a new movie that happens to have these characters that resemble the SATC girls," but for me it all stops when Carrie comes back from Paris and we find out Mr. Big is John Preston!

  23. Haven't seen it yet but I still want to! That sandwich looks yummy!

  27. Oooh, I love the Farm. Looks like you girls had a lot of fun! I felt the same way about the movie. I had low expectations and I did enjoy it, but definitely thought it could have been better.

  31. You guys are so cute! I actually liked this movie better than the first one, but neither come close to comparing with the series.

  36. yeaa the first movie was better than #2 for sure!
    although that's not true for all sequels bc toy story 3 was amaaaazing!

  37. sweet tater fries are amazing. like little donuts...

    ReplyDelete
  38. Looks like so much fun! I love The Farm and The Grove- it's a win win there! xoxo

  39. Ah, that food looks amazing; and the three of you look GORG!

    I haven't seen the movie yet; but hearing that it takes place away from the City completely upsets me. How can you be "Sex and the City" without the City?! :(

  40. I really enjoyed the first one, but the second one was just lacking. Between the inappropriate middle eastern stereotypes and the lack-lustre plot, I was less than impressed. I did enjoy the fashion and her new amazing apartment!! And of course, it was fun to go giggle with a girlfriend, so I guess it wasn't all bad :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. i agree - it could have been a bit better but i loved it still.

    ReplyDelete
  42. this weather!!!! it is the best!!! i just love the 70-80 degree weather and do NOT want it to get hotter!

    and that food looks amazing!

    i think i'll wait to see that movie on dvd. none of the reviews have made me want to spring for a movie ticket.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I liked it but I didn't think it was as good as the first.

    ReplyDelete
  44. You go to some great restaurants! Looks like a fun girl date!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I thought it was absolutely awful! I wasn't expecting a whole lot - and I understand SATC for SATC's sake, but even still....

    Hope you're having a good summer!

  46. You know how to LIVE LIFE!!! I love it!!! XO

  47. I love the new seating across from the theater at that place! Perfect place to people watch : )

  49. what a fun place to grab a bite! you look gorge and the food is making me hungry!

    ReplyDelete
  50. is it embarrassing that i really loved the movie? i think it was just, i'd do anything for those characters -- as neurotic as they are. you look beautiful, as usual. glad you enjoyed the day, movie bust or not! xo, h

  51. Super fun and oh so classy...I love it, Mara!

    I hope you are doing well and enjoying your summer!

  52. I didn't go in with expectations, so I appreciated it for the fun scenery, good looking men, and fun clothing! The Lawrence of Arabia joke had me choking I was laughing so hard!

    Also, love The Grove for a good drink and movie outing!

  53. It was about my expectations - the outfits were certainly fun! I did like that they tried to touch on somewhat serious issues, though briefly (I have a friend whose a new mom and so like Charlotte!)

  56. I'll admit it, I have sill yet to see SATC 2! I'm a little embarrased. Although, the previews do make me want to run away glamorously to the desert. xx

  65. I had the same reaction to the movie as you, only angrier. I had low expectations--I certainly wasn't expecting a cinematic masterpiece or anything. But I was at least expecting it to not be so offensive and ethnocentric! totally disappointing :(

    I love all your dog pictures, btw!!

  66. I wasn't a fan of SatC2. I was kinda 'meh' in my opinion.

    That sandwich looks amazing!
