One of my most favorite neighborhoods in LA is Silver Lake. It’s so cute, so lush, so hilly, so colorful, and quite walkable (walkable for LA at least). The New Yorker in had so much fun walking along Sunset Blvd admiring all the unique shops, cafes, coffee shops, bars and restaurants. I really wanted to visit Moby’s new vegan restaurant, Little Pine, but it didn’t fit into my schedule (next time!!).
I could definitely make myself right at home in Silver Lake, it has such a cozy and laid back vibe.
And finally…StairTempo, the neatest steps I’ve ever seen.
I don’t remember precisely where StairTempo is located, but it’s along Sunset and visible from the street♥ #StairTempo
Part of our sister-sister LA trip included a road trip out to cutest desert city ever, Palm Springs!
Palm Springs is exactly as picturesque and retro as I was expecting. The ride out from Santa Monica wasn’t too bad, I had fun being the DJ for the day, playing my version of “desert road trip songs” (RHCP, David Bowie, Eagles, Pink Floyd, GNR, Led Zepellin, etc..) My favorite part of the trip was just driving around the residential streets and taking in all the amazing architecture. I’m not sure if it’s a rule or a competition, but every single home has impeccable artistic gardens and landscaping complete with tons of cute cactuses (cacti?). I’m not an architecture buff per say, but there’s something about a mid-century modern house that gets me every time ♥.
Here are a few photos I took at the Wynwood Art District from my recent visit to Miami. Some highlights of the trip include the artwork, swimming in the ocean, several trips to my favorite bakery and the overall energy of Miami – cue the beats of Truffle Butter.
