Brunch at Urth Café on Melrose Avenue. I had their salmon brioche with eggs benedict, together with a mango and pineapple smoothie. Absolutely delicious.
Sprinkles in Beverly Hills might offer the best ice cream I’ve ever had. The red velvet cone with red velvet cookie I’ve cream was like a sweet dream.
Favorite spot for some sun in the afternoons - Roof on Wilshire
One place you don’t want to miss in LA is the Flea market on Melrose/Fairfax. I think there’s and five dollar entry fee, but it’s totally worth it. They have a great selection of vintage shorts and jackets in denim and leather. You can also find so many nice jewelry pieces. I bought a little scarf to wear in my hair in blue and while silk.
When in Hollywood you have to see the famous Hollywood sign. Though, you don’t have to go to the view points with all the other people. You can also hike there. I’m not sure if we were allowed to, well I’m pretty sure we weren’t allowed to, but we did anyway. It’s not a very far hike, but pretty steep.
Since I’m back home in Sweden now I’m trying to sort out all the pictures I want to show you. These above are from a sunny day in Santa Monica, Los Angeles. Matilde and I went to LA for the weekend after a few days in San Diego.
We had lunch at True Food Kitchen and went shopping at Santa Monica Boulevard. The vibe in SM is very cosy and chill, though a bit touristic I think.
One place that I would never miss to visit while in San Diego is my favorite pasta restaurant Bencotto located in beautiful Little Italy. As always I ordered the papardelle pasta with bencotto sauce and parmesan.
Corondo island, favorite beach in San Diego.
Hey there! I’m sorry for the bad updating, but geeez I’m having so much fun and there’s so much going on right now that I barley have time do all the stuff I want to do while I’m here. And then the blog is not really my priority now.
How ever, at the moment I’m back in SD, been to LA two times since we spoke last time, but let take the says in order.
Pictures above are from Matildes and my first day in San Diego. We woke up, the sun wasn’t really up, it was gloomy and we decided to go for a hike. We went to Lake Poway and Mt Woodson, which is one of my favorite spots for good hiking trails. We hiked to the Potato Chip Rock and along the road you get to see some incredible views.
If you have any recommendations for good hiking trails near San Diego, please let me know!
Pjuuuuuh…. Went online here and figured I haven’t been updating for quite a while. The days are just passing by so quickly, but I’ve been doing a lot of great stuff. Though, I’m gonna make a separate post for each thing.
But to start off, I left New York after 8 days in the city. It really is a great city but after spending a few days there I actually figured that’s not really what I look for. So New York is not gonna be a option in terms of a future home.
Instead I brought Matilde, who lives there and studies at NYU, to California. She had spring break and we spent a week together in San Diego and Los Angles.
After a weekend full of party and late nights we spent Sunday chilling around in Williamsburg, at the flea market and had pizza and bloody mary drinks at the Shelter.
I’m trying to always get something with me from every art exhibition I see, and this time those postcards followed me home. Thinking go making a collage and frame it.
