Bicycles.

I want a bicycle. What are the possibilities of me using one often? Slim. Are there strong possibilities of me getting hit by a car? Yes. And yet, I still want one. People just look so friggin' cool on them:
 




Will I look cool on mine? Probably not...for some reason I have a feeling I will end up in the same situation as this:

Bradbury Building.







 My friend and I recently visited Chado Tea Room in Little Tokyo to take advantage of a TravelZoo deal. The tea for two was delicious, especially the scones, and to able to sit outside on such a nice day perfected the experience. After tea, we were very full and decided to put in a little exercise and explore Downtown. This included passing through Little Tokyo, the Caltrans Building, Walt Disney Concert Hall, the LA Times building, the Bradbury Building, Grand Central Market, riding Angels Flight and enjoying the view on Bunker Hill. I love downtown. The Bradbury Building was featured in 500 Days of Summer and it is such a unique building. There is this warmth that surrounds you upon entering.

Here are some facts about the Bradbury Building. My favorite being that the person put in charge of designing the building, George Wyman, first refused the offer... but after talking to his ghost brother through some sort of ouija like board with the following messsage: "Mark Wyman / take the / Bradbury building / and you will be / successful" with the word "successful" written upside down... Wyman accepted.

New Year, New Goals.

After getting hired and moving to a different city, I realized how much I missed my severely neglected blog. When the New Year started... I asked myself why I wasn't writing in here as much as I use to. Sure, I got a new job, but why did I stop? I'm thinking that I probably lost some passion for what I was writing about.

So I decided that I would try again. This year I made small goals for myself... and this included keeping a drawing journal. I have loved scribbling in notebooks ever since college, but I realized I never kept a notebook that solely held these little drawings of mine. So I would like to share with you my first entry of my drawing journal.   My goal is to draw at least 1 picture a week and I hope to share each and everyone one of my entries with you.

This drawing was inspired by my Chicago trip, where I visited my old college roommates last November. Chicago is such a beautiful city, but it is also extremely cold there!! So glad I was able to experience Chicago with such good friends.

The Absurd and the Peculiar

Came across this baby while internet browsing. This Rick Owens Merino Angora Hat can be yours for just $259.


Trying to think of a place where I can wear this and not be looked at strange... and I can't think of one place.

Favorites of the Moment

You would think that because I have a job I would have money to afford certain things, but the truth is student loans and car payments keep me from going on shopping sprees. So just like when I was a poor college student, the trend of internet browsing continues. Here are my favorites of the moment:


1. Dorothy Perkins Stone Embellished Trim Tee
2. ASOS Full Skirt
3. Chloe Marcie Satchel
4. Gap Suede Loafers
5. Patricia Nash Handbag, Londra Tote
