I know I’m a little late on my update of LA but since I’ve been back I’ve been swamped with work and last minute summer activities. Not to mention my laptop crashed on me the day I got back so I’m stuck with using my historic Macbook air which I usually use just for note taking. The importing and uploading of photos REALLY made me appreciate and miss my Macbook Pro :'(
Okay onto a happier topic… LA! LA was an amazing trip and was definitely something I needed before summer ended and school began. Here’s one of the days I spent there.
Started the day off right with brunch at the Commissary in the Line Hotel in Koreatown. It was absolutely magical. I’ve seen photos on IG of it before but it was even more amazing and aesthetically pleasing in person. Overall I have to say the Line Hotel was absolutely beautiful. Very modern and simplistic. Definitely would consider staying there when visiting LA again.
Of course I had to stick with my go-to, an eggs benny. This one replaced the usual ham with prosciutto and oh dear lawd… it was amazing. Pretty much licked my plate after.
Found this cool little balcony on the same floor as the Commissary that just had some benches, plants, and a fire pit. Definitely a very cool vibe and can imagine some great summer chills there.
This is the view right out of the hotel lobby! I swear every single corner of LA is picture perfect. I can definitely see how LA bloggers have it so much better now ):
The rest of the day we just spent exploring different shopping areas such as Rodeo Drive (which was absolutely HEAVENLY) and the Fairfax and Melrose area. The urban culture in LA was just absolutely mind blowing. There were so many really cool stores and boutiques that you wouldn’t find anywhere else. Not to mention all the walls and murals that I thought I’d only ever see on blogger feeds! Definitely wished I had prepared more spending money but I’m glad I reserved most of my money for food and activities rather than shopping. I think for my first real trip to LA I’m happy that I did all that I did and saw all that I saw. We mostly spent our time exploring the areas that we were interested in and eating the food that we were recommended either by friends or found on social media.
Next time I go I am definitely spending more time at the beaches (will be blogging about my Venice Beach/Santa Monica Pier day soon!) and bringing way more spending money! :b
Oh yeah and a travel tip: BRING A BACKPACK! My Alexander Wang mini Marti backpack was my go-to for this trip for SURE. I found that having my handsfree was so helpful. Not to mention a lot more comfortable on my shoulders than just a cross-body bag.
I have more LA content coming soon!
