California Dreamin

My first weekend back home in La La Land could not have been any more welcoming, as it involved food, friends, a cute boyfriend, lots of fun and that warm California sun!

securedownload-6These days, a good Friday night in Los Angeles definitely does not have to involve a red carpet, movie premiere or any event that requires a tie. All you really have to do is chill out, get cozy, and enjoy a quiet night with your homies cooking dinner (a little whiskey and wine should also be invited).

securedownload-1 securedownload-2As far as my Saturday night, it was necessary for me to wear something other than my favorite sweatpants as we hit up one of LA’s newest hot spots, Plan Check ( The Plan Check name stems from their first location, which is adjacent to a building and safety department. The owners wanted to create a buzzy architectural vibe in their concept so they blended vintage office elements with industrial decor to make a pretty badass bar atmosphere. What do you think?

securedownload-4After all that eating, laughing and drinking my friends and I decided to call it a night, get up early the next day and hit up ZUMA BEACH!!

securedownload-12Thank God we took a quick break so I could pose.
