In With The New

I’m finally moved into my new apartment––out with the old and in with the new. It’s been a very busy month for me: personally and with work.

For the most part, I’m settled into my new place. I’m still on the hunt for some cool vintage furniture, some wall dressings, and other cute, random shit I most likely don’t need. I get great light in my new place whereas my old place was kinda dim and muggy. I thought to myself: why not “show off” the new place in a post but still have focus on the outfit? I was actually planning on wearing white trainers, but I decided to switch things up a bit and added a little funk with the metallics.

I’ve been itching for fall to come to Southern California if you couldn’t tell by the knit tops lately, but we’re only teased with overcast skies for a few hours (if we’re lucky). I just want to be able to layer up already! Kbye.

If you’re in Los Angeles, be sure to hit up Guisado’s––some of the best tacos I’ve you’ve had. Guisado’s now has three locations: Boyle Heights being the first, Echo Park second, and Downtown being their most recent location.

I’ve only been to the Echo Park location but always pass their newest location when I’m downtown; it looks pretty cute in there.

The corn tortillas have a homemade feel to them––nothing like a store-bought tortilla. The flavors are not shy but aren’t excessive. I usually order the same three tacos: 1 Bistek En Salsa Rojo, 1 Chicken Mole Poblano, and 1 Hongos Con Cilantro, and a large melon (cantaloupe) drink. I always sit in the outdoor seating area because there’s a fountain, vivid murals, and strung lights that are nice to look at when the sun goes down.

Bring a friend or go alone. These tacos will make you happy (if you’re sad about going alone). Cheers.

LACMA in Red

The wonderful Los Angeles County Museum of Art or LACMA is quite the tourist attraction.  I have a lot of love for the LACMA––the tar pits, the architecture, and nifty art installations.  It’s definitely a place to visit.

Many people use the museum and its surroundings as the background for a lot of their photos, but of course, I’m here to do things a little differently.  If the images don’t look that different to most, “A” for effort? I showed up at the LACMA in red, a favorited fall color.  Red is passionate, powerful, and driven.  I love a good play on words; this is my play on “Lady in Red” like the popular song.

I’m moving this weekend (but still within Los Angeles), so bear with me while I settle in and get things going.  Cheers.
