on vacation

totoro and sweet butter toast

tea station

While my posts were already sporadic to begin with, I'm afraid this little trip home is making me more lazy than usual. I'll try my best to get people to take my pictures for outfit shots but 75% of the time I'm going to be in my pajamas watching kdramas and anime. Or at tea shops drinking jasmine milk tea with my new Totoro keychain.

Blog friends, if you are in the LA area, let me know! The more things to do, the better.



Hahaha kdramas are my guilty pleasure. Have you seen You're Beautiful? I finished it a couple of weeks ago lol. Enjoy your stay at home

Which kdramas?

I live in LA and I feel like there is nothing to do except eat or shop. I have spent so much money on food lately.

TOTORO!! I love him!
I've lived in Los Angeles my whole life, yet I sadly don't have any suggestions. Or wait! If you're into museums head to the LACMA. Oh! And the Getty! Those are givens though and are probably also suggested by every corny guide books. Sorry I couldn't be more help!

I've been dying to see the Irving Penn exhibit at the Getty. Hopefully the rain clears up by the weekend, it's only there until 1/10!

By the way, adore your blog. Been following since you were featured on Refinery 29! Makes me miss the bay area. Keep it up. :)

Ah Totoroooo, so cute, gotta get a huge keychainy thing :D Garg same with me when home, it's tv and the closest 'outside' I'm going is to the garden to pretend I'm scraping the snow....

Go to the Getty in Malibu- many people don't know but it was built first. It is built to look like a Roman builing and it is filled with Roman and Greek antiquities. Amoeba is another must...Do I have to mention Sprinkles?!

Kat said...

I went to the Irving Penn exhibit at the Getty in the valley and it wasn't anything special, I enjoyed the architecture and designs of the Getty much more than the exhibits. I live in Malibu ^^ So if your out here I suggest you go to Cross Creek and go to the little boutiques (Madison Planet Blue, Chrome Hearts, Free City). And if you wanna grab somthing to eat I suggest you go to Johns Garden (healthy cuisine), Lilys (hole in the wall great mexican food up near Pt.Dume), Malibu Seafood on PCH, or the higher end restraunts like Nobu, Bui Sushi, The Sunset, or Terra. If you want any suggestions around LA just shoot me an email.

OMG I have that same exact plush toy! It was given to me as an anonymous gift on my locker at school for Christmas a few years ago.

Joanne Oberman said...

I'm not quite sure what Totoro is since the only anime I've ever watched was Pokemon and Sailor Moon, but nonetheless it is very cute.

Rita Teo said...
