I have no clue if interior designers would say lava lamps are making a comeback, they probably are not, but I’ve been seeing them quite a lot these days while out shopping. I hope they’re coming back, I’ve always wanted one.
All over my instagram feed, LA residents (who I’m so jealous of) are posting tons of these red flowers in full bloom. I have no idea what they’re called, but they’re all over my photo stream from January when I visited.
To say I love Downtown LA is an understatement. I spent an afternoon exploring this creative, industrial art district neighborhood and left wanting to move here.
Cactuses and art everywhere:
Hola Tristan Eaton:
Intrigued by these posters, I discovered the band Kitten (check them out on Spotify) and wish I’d still been in town for that show:
And saw another Colette Miller Global Wings Project in person:
DTLA holds a piece of my heart ♥
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
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 ♥.
We even found a little photo booth at the Ace Hotel ♥♥♥.
David Bowie passed away this week and this mural went up outside his apartment. I’m glad he was able to release one last album before cancer overcame him.
Onward to #miami now…
I moved to this amazing city 4 years ago. As cliche as it sounds, some days it feels like I’ve lived here my entire life, and some days I feel like I don’t know this city at all.
Ethel Scull 36 Times Andy Warhol, 1963.
I viewed Regarding Warhol at the Met a few years ago and it’s still to this day the best exhibit I’ve ever been to. Living or dead, the one person I would like to have dinner with is, and always has been, Andy Warhol. Sorting through old files on my computer is almost always a good time.
Paris is always a good idea
Photos taken from last December. Paris is such an amazing city, I hope my 2016 travel plans find me back here ♥♥♥
