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 #4 // Stop & Smell the Flowers

Sunday Thoughts #4 // Stop & Smell the Flowers

It’s time for another Sunday thoughts, yay! I’m currently sitting on my couch with the balcony door cracked open. The breeze is a little chilly but summer is unmistakably coming, as golden sun rays are still shining in at 7pm. I had a great day today hanging out with my mom around Beverly Hills, after dragging myself to a Pilates class in the morning. It’s just one of those days where I feel genuinely content and at ease. These days don’t happen as often as they should even though I honestly don’t have a lot of legitimate complaints. I’m always…

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…

Three Sundays

Three Sundays

December does not bring snow here in California but it doesn’t diminish the holiday spirits. I’ve been a little behind on my blog this month because I’ve been spending extra time with friends whenever I could. I love that even though everyone’s busy, the holiday season brightens everyone’s moods and making plans becomes easier than ever. On each of the three Sundays of this month so far, I spent all day with friends exploring both SD and LA. I took my Olympus Pen around to for interesting snaps and spontaneous photo shoots. Each day didn’t quite have enough content for…

Sunday Thoughts #2

Thinking, Fast and Slow // If all your photos and videos will be destroyed after a vacation and you will forget all your memories from it, would you still go? This is one of the questions that was posed to me in Daniel Kahneman’s book on how we think – Thinking, Fast and Slow. It’s been about two years since I bought this book but I finally finished it. I highly recommend it as it gives a lot of insight to our minds; and if you wish to learn to think more rationally and statistically, then this book is not only eye-opening…
