federal donuts

a new donut place just opened up in philadelphia. these donuts are special since most of them are filled with a creamy center. the rasberry filled donut topped with chocolate icing was my favorite:)

see l.a.

some of the places we visited in l.a. were beautiful, some of them inspiring, and some of them famous!

we hiked griffith park to get as close to the hollywood sign as possible.

everywhere you go you will find a beautiful mural decorating the buildings.

we stopped by pink's hotdogs on la brea.

the tall palm trees seemed like they could go on for ever.

venice beach was fun for watching people, buying sunglasses, and hanging out while taking it all in.

we visited the lacma for its lights. next time i want to go back at night.

the griffith observatory was perfect for overlooking the sparkling city. the best time to go is sunset.

lastly, olvera street has the best mexican finds. i was so inspired i took many photos of their wares.

eat l.a.

here are some of my favorite places to eat in l.a.

mel's diner for milkshakes...

m cafe for vegan...

any of the farmer's markets for dragon fruit...

casbah cafe for some of the best figs i ever tasted...

and of course pinkberry...

one of the best places we ate in l.a. was jone's bar in west hollywood. it's a local place with a great menu and yummy food. the vibe is quaint and the decor is cozy. it's hidden and not over crowded with tourists. try it!
