WEEKEND RECAP


I often take LA for granted and decided to play tourist in my own city. D and I revisited some places that I haven't been to since childhood, tried & true favorites, and new findings (with the help of Yelp): Woodspoon, the Griffith Observatory, Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook (provides an amazing 360 view of LA), Coolhaus and Zankou.

  5. your pictures are always so amazing. it looks like a really fun weekend. i wish the weather was nice enough right not to play explorer in chicago, but unfortunately it`s cold enough to keep me indoors! you`re also so lucky to live in a place where you can do outdoorsy things, it must make weekends more fun and interesting!

  8. Wow, what amazing shots of the city. I love LA so much, spent my last vacation there! And I feel the same way about NYC as you do about LA, regarding the 'tourist stuff' ;) I also love your outfit from your last post - great combination! Thanks for your lovely comment. Follow me if you want, maybe you get inspired ;) xo from NYC
