    As I am now living in Downtown Los Angeles I have embraced the culture of Happy Hours. Both for food and drinks.

A modern small Italian restaurant in the middle of the South Park are of Downtown Los Angeles. We arrived around 6pm on a Friday night and the restaurant was surprisingly not busy at all.

    A Little Bit of Love From Paris with Ladurée

    In case you already didn’t know. Ladurée opened their first West Coast location here in LA in December last year. Located at The Grove this two story bakery and restaurant stands out with it’s pastel green exteriors. Right in front of the fountain with added outdoor seating with a Parisian feel. Luxury, glamour and excitement is what I feel as I enter through the doors. Only to be greeted of a sea of macaroons and other delicious pastries. Seems as I wasn’t the only one on a Thursday to go there only for the Macaroons. Which Ladurée are famous for. The window displays were a work of art. Even walls behind the counter. Which I would imagine…

    Travel comfortably in style

    Summer is approaching and we all know what that means. Travel time! For me living in California it is so easy to grab a few friends, take the car and go somewhere – anywhere. Road trips are the best. For one day, or for five days. It doesn’t matter. They are simply the best. Now that I have a new car I am sure that a few road trips here and there will be on the agenda and I would like to share my essential style tips, with some help from TopShop, while on the go. Always be comfortable. This I say always. If you don’t feel comfortable in what…

    Culver City Farmers Market

    On Tuesdays there’s is a farmers market set up on Main street in Culver City. I always love to go here even if it’s really small because you can get super fresh produce that is organic. Some places are more expensive but thinking that it is all local and organic grown makes it worth it. I usually don’t buy too much, some fresh fruits and veggies to get through the week. One of the stands has this huge strawberry box for only $5 that I always get, because the smaller one is $4 and that one only has about a 3rd of strawberries. The flowers are super cheap, for $5…
