LA Restaurant Week

unnamed

Restaurant Week is one of my favorite events of the year. Almost every major city will do a version of Restaurant Week. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Restaurant Week, it’s basically a bunch of restaurants, I’m talking 100+ restaurants, that will create prix fixe menus at a special price. A two-course lunch option normally ranges from $15-$25, and a 3-course dinner will range from $30-$60. Some restaurant weeks even donate a certain percentage of the proceeds to a charity. For me, restaurant week is a great way to discover new restaurants and be able to try a variety of dishes at a great price. While I was in LA this past weekend, restaurant week had just started, so Dylan and I decided to go on a food adventure and filled our weekend eating delicious meals.  Continue Reading

Trapped in DTLA: A Travel Diary

Whenever I pack for my weekend trips to LA, I am always torn between packing clothes that I just bought, but haven’t figured how to style and my closet staples – items that I know will go with everything and are extremely versatile. Since it was supposed to be cloudy and raining all weekend, packing was quite easy because the possibility of rain really limited what I could bring.

A Night In Aptos

A few weeks ago, my high school friend, Jenny, invited me to spend the weekend with her and her college friends in Aptos. Before this trip, I didn’t even know Aptos existed, but in case you were wondering, it’s located further south of Santa Cruz and it borders Seascape (a city I did know existed). Although I didn’t get to spend the entire weekend by the beach, I did get to spend Saturday night there.

Now I’m not going to lie, I’m not much of a beach person. After making several trips to LA, I can tell you that I am very uncomfortable about being in the ocean and that sand gets everywhere and it is a bitch to clean. The one upside to the beach, however, is that you can make bonfires and in turn, make s’mores. Nothing beats the late night munchies than some melted marshmallows and chocolate smushed between two graham crackers.

While my s’mores-making technique has been questioned and criticized by many, I still think I make pretty damn good s’mores. For my outfit on Sunday, I went for a casual/resort vibe so kept it simple with a shift dress and a jean jacket.

Stay Chic!

Travel Diary: Palm Springs

At the end of March, I travelled to Palm Springs for a weekend to attend the Indian Wells tennis tournament with my friend and his parents. Since we only spent one day at the actual tournament, there was lots of time to explore Palm Springs.

Besides going to Indian Wells, we went on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and on the way out of Palm Springs, we made a pit stop at the Cabazon Dinosaur Sculptures.

Below are some of the photos and stills from the trip.
