LA Vacation!

As I mentioned before, I love looking at other people's vacation photos during most of the summer. I loved that I could live vicariously through others as they took vacations out of the county or out of state or just in the next town over. Now though, I'm excited because I have my own vacation to share.

This vacation took place between the 30th and 31st of July. That's why you didn't get a post Saturday or a MILAM. ... If anyone remembers.

I took a ton of pictures. Here goes.
This is just the first part of the first day, Chinatown in LA.





Here are some scenes of LA. So many more people than I'm used to!




On the right, a lovely gate. And on the left, a couple walking underneath red lanterns. I think this image is kind of romantic.



On the left is a billboard type thing painted on the wall advertising the area. On the right is an actual educational board attached to a post.



A cute little fountain. 


Mugdha from A Vigilance Muse  and I in front of the gate from a few images before. 




Some places have brides and grooms as cake toppers. Other places have these little dolls. 




Mugdha's yummy red velvet cake from a local bakery.




My lychee ice cream and coconut mochi. Lychee ice cream has such an interesting taste!


My friend's red velvet cupcake. 


We explored Chinatown for a few hours before hitting the beach that afternoon!

  1. What a fun post, I know what you mean, I always have fun looking at people's vacation posts. I've never been to China town in LA. It looks like you had a great time and that red velvet cake looks sooo good. Yum! :)

  3. Are these all of your photos? They're really nice, do you post-edit them, or straight from the camera? I like the colours.

  23. I used to live in LA and sometimes get homesick for the place, but every time I visit I can't wait to get back home. It's one of those things that's better as a memory/more fun to visit than to live in. I love the outfit you wore, especially with that beautiful necklace.. you look so chic!

    Becky - I feel like I missed out by not having any!
