Last Week: LA, Velvet, and Disneyland.

Currently, it’s almost midnight, it’s raining (a rare occasion), I’m listening to the Swingin’ Christmas station on Pandora, and burning the Cider Lane candle from B&BW which smells like caramel apple cider. Today, I had no plans or commitments, and consequently took TWO, yes that’s correct, TWO naps, drank hot chocolate and ate a hot apple crumble pastry. Looking back, today has been fantastic.

However, lately I’ve been a little uninspired about what to post on this blog. Apart from looking back at my time in Paris, there’s nothing too exciting happening in my life at the moment, at least exciting, blog-post-worthy things. The highlight of my day yesterday was coming home to my cozy bed; I recently adorned it with some Christmas lights and a red sparkly garland. I also went to Disneyland with my bff Natalie a couple days ago, which was super fun, but usually my life consists of work and school and being a homebody. Yes, there are fun things to do out here, I live close to LA, but for some reason I never feel inspired enough to venture out of my bubble. Probably because I’ve lived here my whole life.

Anyway, here are some snapshots from the last week or so.

{Spent a few days with my other bff Michelle. It was midnight, we were looking rachet in our oversized pyjamas, when we were suddenly hit with the sudden urge to go out to Hollywood! Totally worth it.}

{We went to a bar called Harvard and Stone, and I highly reccomend it. They played all oldies, the bartenders were truly talented and made delicious, unique drinks, and the crowd was young and slightly hipster, but the extremely friendly type of hipster. Seriously, people were dancing like nerds without a care! Great atmosphere. Did I mention the fireplace?? Yes, there’s a fireplace.}

{the next morning, we had some serious studying to do, so we headed to a cafe that makes the BEST, I repeat BEST, cappuccino foam ever. Something about studying with Michelle brought out my genius, because I had a major breakthrough with my paper topic. HUZZAH! The place is called the Literati Cafe.}

{Delicious breakfast sandwich and eggs Benedict on the patio. Cappuccino of my dreams.}

{I work at a Color-Me-Mine, and every once in a while, we get a talented customer. And then I take pictures of their artwork like a creeper and post it online…}

{Velvet. Plaid. Need I say more? …my room is messy.}

{Dress: forever 21. Necklace: Target. Scarf: also Forever21}

{NECESSARY: Sparkly Minnie ears and a carousel ride. side note: I stole Nat’s Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 107, because it truly is a fantastic shade. Muahaha}

{Disneyland has decorated for Christmas! Seriously makes me so happy. Went on a Monday afternoon and the lines were perfect. Highlight of the day: Natalie realized her life dream of being the Rebel Spy on Star Tours. Success!!}
And because I can’t help myself, I’m going to leave you with a little Christmas spirit.

I'm a Californian in my mid-twenties who studied Art History and lived in France for 3 years. I blog honestly about my travels, share my thoughts on life, and get poetic about art and photography. I also sell prints of my photographs on Etsy.
