Hey guys! How's that cold and rainy weather in Melbourne going? It's kind of awesome and sunny with blue skies and what not here in Los Angeles!
Firstly, thank you to everybody who commented and had suggestions on my post about heading to America. Even if I haven't responded, I've read all of them and I can't wait to check out your suggestions for San Francisco, and will happily compare In-N-Out and Shake Shack for those of you who are curious!
I totally thought I would have had more time to keep the blog updated and maybe pop up little tidbits here and there, but since Brad and I have arrived, it's been go, go, go all day! Our last two days started at around 8am and didn't finish until quite late! Only today we've decided to really just kick back and take the afternoon off, so I've finally had some time to go through my photos.
I'm quite sleep deprived currently (fun, rough and late night last night...) so will hold back on the writing when I have more time to sit and reflect on my thoughts and instead just share a few pictures of our time in LA, we head off to San Francisco tomorrow!
Ready for photo spam?
Our first night, after 6 hours of not eating, we satiated ourselves with $1.25 tacos from Chiqui's taco truck. Oh. My. God. Mind blown. Could not stop smiling.
This Optimus Prime could move and talk. He called me the 'Blue Haired One'. I told him I loved him. He told me he appreciated the sentiment. MY LIFE WAS MADE.
The huge servings started at Universal Studios...
In-N-Out happened. It was delicious. I want more protein style burgers in my life.
Roosevelt Hotel is one of the most beautiful and relaxing spots to stop by for a drink.
Just hanging with a star...
Ginormous breakfasts were consumed at Blu Jam Cafe (after a 30 minute wait!). This is my "I'm really going to eat all this" face!
Popped by the La Brea Tar Pits. Not something you see everyday, kind of cool it's been here since the time of the Ice Age!
I discovered a Georgetown Cupcake boutique had opened in LA. It's important to sample the gluten free peanut butter fudge flavour.
I think my life might be complete. Especially when a gluten free red velvet cupcake is in my life.
Venice beach. Still crazy as ever.
After dinner at Katsuya's (where the mains and entrees were good, but the sushi rolls were a bit lack lustre), we randomly got invited to a club with a friend, where we may have had too many vodkas.
And thus gorged on pupusas and tamales at the Hollywood Farmer's Market the next day (which was today), while we were hungover and sleep deprived. It was glorious.
Sno Cones make me happy. Especially when they are blackberry and lemon on one side, and strawberry and rhubarb on the other. Natural flavours make for total deliciousness.
And so do sweet peaches. I wandered close to this guy's table, he gave me a sample of one of his peaches, I fell in love. I bought a single peach for 90 cents and he proceeded to toss in these two plums as freebies, which are also beautifully sweet and delicious.
Speaking of colour, I've had about 6 people a day tell me they love my hair. It's cute. People in Australia seem to be too shy to say? Maybe I should be blue all the time?
We're having a grand time (albeit a little tiring) and I'm so super keen on heading to San Francisco tomorrow.
Make sure you follow my Instagram account, to get live updates on what I'm doing and eating!
For those wondering, we didn't end up getting a car, and I'm quite happy to say, if you plan out your time here, although it requires a fair bit of walking, you can get around without a car. Just depends on what you want to do!
Proper write-ups of everything will come later! Ciao for now!
