A Few Favs | I love LA

I’ve spent the past few hours, scouring social media and attempting to create buzz for my boyfriend’s band Moons of Mars, WHO by the way have an incoming headlong show, TUESDAY at the The Echo in Echo Park. (How awesome, right?) 

I love exploring the internet. Click through link after click through link, it’ easy to get lost in the inter web. 

I thought I’d share some of my favorite discoveries with you today: 

1) The first is a photographer, Whitney Darling. She tells beautiful stories on her blog through photographs and words. I discovered her because I looked up the geotag on Instagram for the Silverlake Farmers Market and I spotted her high resolution photo of a cute engagement shoot! I ventured to the Farmer’s Market this morning, so I was looking through Instagram to see if there were photos I could share with you all. Her branding is also spot on to boot! Check her out! I might shoot her an email when I need engagement photos. ;)

Here’s the photo I spotted on Instagram, love the plaid! Love this couples story and I don’t even know them!

2) I learned on RackedLA that the new Ace Hotel is opening up in DowntownLA on Monday! So exciting! Gosh it’s going to be so cool! 

The Ace Hotel as well as the recent opening of Acne and Urban Outfitters on Broadway signals the revitalization DowntownLA. Not to mention the hotel is opening in the United Artists Theater, so much LA History there! The theater has it’s first musical act performing on Valentine’s Day! Ticket are sold out sadly, but I hope I can see someone (maybe my boyfriend’s band) perform there some day!

Here’s a pic they had with the article taken by Matt Ducker on Instagram, yet again.

Look the Ace Hotel is saying Hi! Hi, Ace! I love this city!

As I’m writing this from my couch some crazy beautiful natural light began to flood into my little studio.

And that’s all from Saturday on my couch!


Got to work with these beauties today. The soil smelled glorious and the cactus prongs really hurt!!

On New Year Resolutions:
This is the time of year where nearly everyone is making resolutions to change their lives for the better. Whether it be incorporating healthy habits into their lifestyle or quitting bad ones, people are resolving to make a change. But I tend to think New Years resolutions are silly. They’re nothing more than flimsy promises to yourself that are just waiting to be broken. It’s inevitable that we’ll mess up because we’re human and  easily make mistakes, we give in to temptations and old habits. I know I need to make changes in my life but I also know I cannot rely on myself to do it. Instead my New Year resolution is to trust more and more in my God, who through Jesus resolved to go to the cross. His power alone can change hearts and lives. My resolution is to love Him more and more and to allow his love to transform me. 

The photo above was taken at the Downtown LA Flea market. DTLA is quite a magical place and it’s skyline is also quite magnificent.
