DRESS UP A SWEATER

Sweaters are probably one of my favourite items of clothing to throw on. They are effortless and comfortable as hell! Once in awhile, though, I do get tired of mindlessly putting on a cozy knit and a pair of skinnies or leggings. Can sweaters not ever escape the fate of being equated with lazy day? I think not!

STRIPES & GRIDS

We all run into circumstances where those holy grail ripped jeans and hole-y band tees are just not appropriate. Time after time, the go-to’s are always a black pencil skirt and a pair of black pumps. While our wardrobe choices are often confined by professional settings, we don’t have to strip ourselves of all personality.

VERVE COFFEE ROASTERS

I had just one day left in Los Angeles. Out of all tourist attractions that I had to miss out on, I chose to visit a café.

It was a good decision.

SAN DIEGO

San Diego has my heart. No questions. It is incredibly lively and energetic, yet somehow tranquil at the same time. It gets your blood pumping while shushes your mouth. It makes you want to scream of excitement, but only silently. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

First stop: Balboa park.

LOS ANGELES

Now I’m not a huge amusement park person. I don’t like rides, and I don’t like lines. I even considered passing up both Universal Studios and Disney Land. In the end, I  decided to give Universal Studios a go solely to avoid the awkward post-holiday questions of what I even did in LA.

It was amazing. I only went for the Despicable Me and Shrek rides but both were adorable, although the minions came on top hands down. The tram tour and the shows were equally impressive. What really won my over, I have to say, were the under-appreciated actors. Spongebob, the Gru sisters, Donkey from Shrek, everyone was lively, enthusiastic, and crazy talented.
