Spent a wonderful weekend in LA & checked a few things off of my SoCal bucket list! I may be a Bay Area girl through and through, but no one can argue SoCal weather superiority.
From the Bay to LA; highlights post 6-hour drive:
Skipped through the LA Flower Market,
They have glorious sunflower bouquets for $2.50!! (Of course I bought one.) I’ve been to the SF Flower Market as well and I must say that while the LA one is cheaper, the SF one is definitely better*.
*More choices, more flowers, more vendors.
browsed the sweet macarons of Bottega Louie,
When my friends had gone to Paris, I desperately wanted macarons from Laduree – entirely because the box is the loveliest thing ever. Unfortunately, they didn’t get one, BUT LO AND BEHOLD I found the next best thing at Bottega Louie.
Gold painted earl grey macaron: check ~
got our culture on at the Getty center.
Coolest thing! I had a huge deja vu moment and realized I had been to the Getty when I was in seventh grade! I was touring with the Great Wall Youth Orchestra (fun fact!) and we performed in LA. Can’t mistake that garden and those walls.
high-fived Mickey at Disneyland & California Adventure.
& went HAM on the Tower of Terror – success!
Bye LA, smog you later~
