November feels like it just started, and then suddenly ended, leaving Christmas right around the corner. What happened?? While November was not a smooth-sailing month, it was still a calm one at the same time. Does that make sense? I enjoyed watching the leaves turn red, and suddenly we’re already halfway to exams at Uni. But enough with my ramblings, click through to read about the things I loved/experienced in November, and what I’m looking forward to in the upcoming months.
Despite Joshua Tree being a mere 2 1/2 (or, let’s face it, with the usual traffic, 3-4) hour drive away from Los Angeles, when you step out of your car upon arrival, you’ll feel like you’ve entered another world. Gone are the buildings and asphalt of the city; the small towns surrounding the park and the open desert look like a different America. And here is why you should take that drive, and leave Los Angeles behind for the weekend.
The time that I spent in Los Angeles last spring was the longest chunk I had had there since moving to Europe in 2014. However, I felt like I spent my time in an entirely new city, as my job at BOLD Los Angeles had me commuting to Downtown on the daily, and the wonderful colleagues I had there (aka my main social interactions) were also all based in other parts of the city. The result? This Valley girl finally left her little cave, and was delighted by what she discovered in the process.
And today I want to present you guys with my findings, in the form of a neat little guide! Whether you are from the Valley, or anywhere else in the world, these little Los Angeles treasures are well worth stopping by if you ever find yourself in town. P.S.: you can find my guide to a perfect afternoon in Downtown LA here!
April passed by in a complete and utter blur. I started the month working in Los Angeles, and ended it in Munich, back into my routine of Uni, work, and friends. I can’t believe it has already been a full month since I’ve been back! April was busy and happy–I have been/am overjoyed to be back in my favorite city, living the life I have built up for myself over the past two years. If you want to hear about what my April favorites were, from weekends in the desert to wonderful surprises in the mail, click through to read more.
Hello everybody! Recently (to be more precise, almost a full month ago), I returned back to Germany, after having done a 7 week internship in Los Angeles. February-April I had the pleasure of interning at BOLD LA, a communications and marketing agency in Downtown Los Angeles. I learned so much during my time with the company, and also had the chance to rediscover my hometown, this time from the other side of the hill!
Growing up, I spent 95% of my time in the Valley. It was where I lived, it was where I went to school, it was where I knew my way around. However, this time around it was so much fun to discover another side of town. And now, as the start of an influx of blogposts to come about LA, I wanted to share my version of a perfect afternoon in Downtown Los Angeles with you guys. If you ever have an afternoon to enjoy in the heart of the city, be sure not to miss out on these things. Enjoy!
P.S. – Everything is in walking distance of each other! 😉
The first month of 2017 is officially done, and I’m looking forward to moving onward. While I did have a great month (lots of blog growth, a super fun weekend trip) January honestly just kind of dragged on. It’s been super cold in Munich and I’ve been less than unmotivated to study for exams. I’m excited for February, exams are wrapping up and I’m heading to Los Angeles to start an exciting two month internship at a thriving German/American PR Agency. But first, let’s take a look back at January, I have lots to share!
