LA Diaries #1

LA Diaries #1

I have never loved living in LA like I do right now. I moved into my own apartment about four months ago and it has become my very own little corner in the city. I don’t know how many years I will be living in this great city of dreams and reality, so I’m making the best of it. I’ve been going through some changes lately, but through my efforts, the positive has way outweighed the negative. I’m doing everything with more purpose and drive. This includes things I already loved, and perhaps more importantly, things that I always wanted…

Sunday at Hammer Musuem

Sunday at Hammer Musuem

After being in LA for 2.5 years, visiting the Broad (part I and part II), LACMA, Getty Center at least twice each, I finally made it to one of the closest museums to me – Hammer Museum at UCLA. It was originally started by Armand Hammer (Armie Hammer’s great grandfather!) to house his personal art collection. Now, other than being home to some of the coolest contemporary art in the city, Hammer Museum also hosts talks, concerts, screenings… etc. There is also a quaint courtyard in the middle with bamboos and plenty of people doing work or having deep conversations.…

Every Little Thing’s Gonna be Alright

Every Little Thing’s Gonna be Alright

I’ve been putting off this post entirely too long now because it’s not a fun topic to write, or even think about. I’m currently sitting with a coffee in the cafe of the Taipei hotel we’re calling home for six nights. My boyfriend and I have been best friends for almost four years, partners for more than three, roommates for almost two. We can’t count on two hands the number of countries we have traveled to together (thanks to those Caribbean countries we visited on a cruise :p), and now we’re on one last big trip before the start of…

Two LA Urban Oases

Two LA Urban Oases

LA is not a particularly peaceful town, not really at all. Even after two years in LA, I’m constantly on the hunt for new spots that feel like an escape from the city. It’s no easy feat a lot of the times but whether peaceful or not, the places to discover in LA are eclectic and countless. Yesterday I visited two different places I’d never been before, both attempt to be urban oases in the chaotic city but are opposites in almost every way. The first spot was Peace Awareness Labyrinth and Gardens. I had never heard of it before.…

Sunday Thoughts #3 // LA Arboretum

Sunday Thoughts #3 // LA Arboretum

It’s not quite Sunday but it’s been a little quieter here on my blog than I’d like, so I’m sharing some thoughts/updates! The photos are from our recent visit to Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Garden, located in Arcadia. It’s known for its free roaming peacocks. I had visited previously in high school, but that was before I lived in the middle of the chaos that is LA city, so I didn’t appreciate how peaceful and well-maintained the arboretum is. If you live in LA I’d highly recommend a visit! But anyway, here’s some randomness:¬† Movies //¬†Every January and…
