LA Fashion Week

Lately I’ve been partaking in some very “LA” things – backstage beauty events, a panel with the cast of my favorite show Scandal, and now LA Fashion Week. Shout out to my amazing friends who think of me when these opportunities arise! I went to the shows on Thursday evening and saw designers Dena Burton, George Styler, and Marcelo Quadros. All three shows had really distinctive styles but I enjoyed them all thoroughly. I’m completely clueless about changing the settings…

Restart

A few days ago my boyfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary by treating ourselves to a whole day of deliciousness and a stroll on Rodeo Drive, not too unlike any other day in our relationship really. A year is a magical length of time to me. Facebook likes to remind us of our memories from one or more years ago this day, but I’ve been subconsciously doing it for a long time. Whenever I get some free time…

Coco Loves LA

As one of my first experiences of Los Angeles glamour, my friend and I went to Chanel’s I love Coco Backstage Beauty Lounge at Bar Marmont in Hollywood. It was a free event, but was apparently attended by stars like Ashley Benson just a day before to make buzz in the press. I had been excited for the event days leading up to it, mostly because it sounded like it was made for blogging. Of course, something unexpected always happens.…

Settling In

It’s really not where you are, but how you are that decides if you can get a peace of mind. Though my move to LA has been pretty stress free, I still have moments of complete weakness when I think to myself about how much I hate this place. But maybe I just haven’t given it a fair chance. Living in a city is certainly not the same as visiting it for short day trips. Third Street Promenade and the…

Boxwood at the London

Finding authentic British afternoon tea in LA is not an easy feat. Despite studying abroad in London for a semester, my boyfriend managed to have never experienced afternoon tea. So, I made it my mission to show him what he’s been missing out on, and what better occasion for a special treat than Valentine’s Day? After relentless research, I picked Boxwood Cafe at the London in West Hollywood. Okay yeah, the name of the hotel made me a little biased…

UCSD and Me

I don’t know if the cliche that “college is the best time of your life” is true, since I’ve only been out of college for less than a year. Whenever I get the chance to walk on UCSD campus now, however, I miss my college life immensely. My appreciation for my university, and just education in general, has definitely been increasing continuously through the years. I went to a high school where students were so overachieving that UCSD only seemed…

Point Loma

There’s nothing better than hanging out with your bestie for a couple of days without any interruptions, especially in San Diego. Today we went on an adventure in Point Loma to see the lighthouse. It’s a place that I’ve never been or even passed by because it’s so out of the way, which is great because I felt like we were on vacation for a few hours. We even went on a leisurely 2 mile hike with barely any company.…
