What I'll Miss Most About Living in Los Angeles

In my last post, I announced that I’ll be leaving Los Angeles and moving to New York City. I talked about how Billy and I came to that decision and shared some of my favorite memories (and what I’ll miss most) about L.A. Attempting to condense over nine years of living in this beautiful city into one article is impossible and I hate knowing that I’m leaving out so much. As I scrolled through my photos, I created a folder and then narrowed down my favorite pictures so I can share them with you guys. Whenever possible, I’ve linked the event or place so youRead More →

Why I’m Leaving Los Angeles After Almost 10 Years

After living in Los Angeles for almost 10 years, Billy and I said goodbye to the city we instantly fell in love with. This past July, as we flew back to New England to spend the summer with my family, we knew there was a chance we wouldn’t be returning to L.A. (at least not for a while). The decision to leave wasn’t one that either of us took lightly. We went back and forth, discussing the pros and cons of leaving Los Angeles and moving to New York City. How we came to our decision to move to New York City It all beganRead More →

I’ve visited a number of pop-ups and museums in L.A., but I rate this as one of the best immersive art experiences in Hollywood. It’s divided into two fantasy realms—the 3D Illusions area and the Upside Down House. Both are designed to spark creativity, make you laugh, and give you an escape from everyday reality. Here are our highlights (and favorite optical illusion photographs) from our visit. This illusion reminded meRead More →

Bell Bottoms and Snakeskin (Plus a Fun Way to Spend a Sunday Afternoon in L.A.)

The bohemian era of the 1960s is one of my favorite decades and for the longest time I’ve wanted a pair of perfectly fitting dark wash bell bottoms. This past April I got invited to an Alice and Olivia cocktail party and I splurged on a pair to wear to the get-together. When I tried them on the cut was perfect (too perfect to not purchase), but the length was super-long. Instead of putting them back, I took them to my tailor and had them hemmed for an extra $20 dollars and it was well worth the investment. The day of the party, I wasn’tRead More →
