There are so so many things and places so see in LA, I'm already starting to feel a little bit of FOMO. Today we stopped by Wilshire Blvd which is a really nice area here in LA, famous for the skyscrapers located all along the boulevard. Here we visited a stretch between Fairfax and Highland Avenues which is known as Miracle Mile and is a home to many of the largest museums of Los Angeles. I especially loved the Urban Light installation right at the entrance of LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), which consists of 202 restored street lamps from the 1920s and 1930s. I will definitely come back here at the night time! 

Right next to LACMA there's La Brea Tar Pits. Tar pits are composed of heavy oil fractions called asphaltum, which seeped from the earth as oil. From time to time asphalt would from to a thick trap for animals, hereafter fossils have been found of mamooths, dire wolves, bears, sloths and even a human from 10,000 years ago!

Venice beach

HERE'S WHAT I WORE...

Venice -  palm trees, skate boarders, ocean breeze - or should I say a breeze of 420, haha! Since it's legal here you can feel it in the air basically everywhere you go, but especially in Venice! Venice Beach is only a few miles away from Santa Monica Pier but it's a whole lotta different. The atmosphere here is more artsy and laid back, the alley that goes all along the beach is super crowded with interesting people and even more interesting shops where you can get a t-shirt, a slice of pizza, a pair of sunglasses, some medical marijuana and everything in between. It's fun here with loud music everywhere and people dancing with skates but can get too interesting when the sun goes down.

Hollywood Blvd

Hollywood Boulevard. Probably the most crowded place I've ever visited! It's so overflowed with tourists, I'm even surprised I've managed to find a moment to take some pictures before hundreds of people crossed the street. Hollywood wasn't quite as expected, but I guess I never really knew what it's about. We visited the Hollywood & Highland Center where you can get some shopping done (both high street & designer), it's an open, roofless mall and if you go up to the second floor you get a pretty good view of the Hollywood sign. Other famous places on the Boulevard are TCL Chinese theatre, Dolby theatre and Madame Tussauds wax museum which I visited in London, so we didn't go there. And of course, the Walk of Fame! I never thought it would be sooo long! It goes on both sides of the street and it's so long we didn't even get to the end of it. I was actually surprised how many of the celebrities names on the stars I did not know - I've only seen a few familiar names compared to how many there are! All in all Hollywood blvd is definitely a must see in LA but I wouldn't recommend living in this area just because it's "Hollywood" (we almost did) and have visited it twice I don't plan to come back any time soon.

Last minute Valentine's day gifts

Friday, February 13


Valentine's day is just around a corner - do you already have a present for your special one? As for me, I always like to give (and get) perfumes for nearly any occasion. What's a better gift than a special scent in a gorgeous bottle? And what's ever better for Valentine's day than Valentino, huh? That's what my Valentine is getting tomorrow! I absolutely love the rich, spicy, sweet new scent of Valentino Uomo.

Valentino Uomo contains top notes of bergamot and myrtle, middle notes of roasted coffee beans, chocolate and hazelnut, base notes of leather and cedar.

Quite a notes selection, isn't it? Definitely something very unique and special, and I strongly suggest you to check this out for a special man in your life, either for Valentine's day, or any other occasion!

And some more gift ideas for her & him...

Last minute valentines day gifts for her


For her

Pink and red shades all the way! A set of PJ's or lingerie is always a good idea, as well as a nice piece of jewelry. If you know your girls taste good, a bag or a wallet is something she's definitely going to love..!
 


I think you can never go wrong with gifting a nice watch for a guy - but if you are more creative than that, a cute pin, classy candle or a pair of good quality sunglasses will do the trick!
