LA baby!

The Best Spots To Visit In Los Angeles

Now that things are slowly starting to open up in California, I know more people will be planning trips to visit the best city in the Golden State! So here are some notes from someone who has lived in LA her whole life. Do the touristy stuff if you must, but take it from me and add these spots to your trip!

Redondo Beach

Everyone hypes of Malibu, or Laguna or even Manhattan beach, but this is my personal favorite spot. It's famous for surfing, but if you're like me, and don't surf, this is the perfect local spot with a bajillion cute stores and restaurants just off the beach!

Nick Metropolis Collectible

This place takes thrifting to a whole new level. Instead of clothes, they've got furniture, artwork, and other odds and ends that you'll absolutely love!

The Getty Museum

I know not everyone likes museums, but I do, so listen up! This place, on top of having famous artwork from artists Van Gogh and Rembrandt, it is famous for its stunning architecture and beautiful garden! If for nothing else, go for the pics!


Most people visit this place, but never go inside! You know, the place with all the lampposts where everyone goes to take their pictures? Yep! That's the one. Do it! Go inside, see all of the exhibits, and consider yourself an art genius because you can brag to all your friends you saw the rain room or learned a lot about modern art.

Studio tours

This is the one touristy thing that I will encourage. Just be careful to pick the right tour, and do the studio's official tour, and not someone's random Hollywood tour that will totally rip you off! I'd recommend checking out Paramount, Universal, Sony, or Warner Brothers!

Pink's Hot Dogs

I don't care if you say you hate hot dogs, because I do too. But for real, these hot dogs are unlike any others you will have in your life. So go get one and be transformed.

The Original Farmer's Market

This farmer's market has everything, and I literally mean everything. Any kind of food you could possibly be craving, they've got it. It's at The Grove mall, so if you wanna increase your chances of meeting a celebrity while you're in LA, definitely pay this spot a visit!

Thrift stores

Thrifting in LA hits different. Just think, designer brands in Goodwill for just a couple bucks? Say less! My favorite spots are Buffalo Exchange, Jet Rag, Squaresville, and Out of the Closet, but never shy away from staple places like Goodwill or Salvation Army!

The invention of photography

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

It's Important To Remind Yourself To Be Open-Minded And Embrace All Life Has To Offer

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
