Made in LA
Sunny days, top down, iced coffee and watermelon water...ah, the signs of summer. One of the reasons I love Los Angeles is because you get a mix of everything and more. I just returned from a quick few days in LA, and my girl Amanda and I had a fantastic time driving around in our Zipcar all weekend. I flew in early on Friday to get my meetings out of the way before she flew in at night, and I stopped by the Adrianna Papell showroom, met up with an awesome lady in PR, and stopped by The Bar Method for a workout and Pressed Juicery for some yummy juice.
On Saturday, I got up early for Pure Barre (I'm obviously obsessed with barre) and then we went to brunch at The Ivy, which is one of my favorite stops in LA. Yes, it's totally overrated, but, it's a classic staple, and my friend is pretty obsessed with the hotspot.
I managed to have time to stop by Organic Shimmer, located on Melrose Ave. in the heart of Beverly Hills. If you're thinking "dang, she looks tan" it's because, for one of the rare times in my life, I actually am. I'm not a fan of truly anything artificial, whether you're talking about botox or fake nails, but I'm down to get an organic spray tan every once in a while. If I was actually made in LA, I'd probably be naturally tan anyway, right!?
My new project, MINT, Media Impact and Navigation for Teens, is launching September 1st, and I couldn't be more thrilled to finally have the opportunity to incorporate the discussion of social media and mental health in school systems. I'm just finishing up decorating my apartment in Boston (stay tuned for the home story!) and even though I'm rarely home, I couldn't imagine my life any differently.
Follow your dreams, and everything works out in the end.
