Los Angeles | Sunsets and Beach Vibes

THE CITY OF ANGELS

Ahhh Los Angeles, a magical place known for its Mediterranean-like climate, sprawling metropolis and is thus far my favourite city in all of America.

It epitomizes the American Dream, where hopefuls flock to in search of success, prosperity and the promise of a better life. It is a beautiful mess of rolling hills, endless beaches, intricate freeways and eclectic neighbourhoods.

I get starry-eyed over the sunsets, sun-kissed skin, soft sand, salt-water tangled hair, crashing waves and blurry, dance-filled nights that has a hold on my heart.

There is so much more to this daunting and wonderful city: the food, the nightlife, the glitz, the glamour. But the beach, the beach is where love lies.

Here’s a few snaps of what keeps me going back, captured through the lens of my iPhone.

SANATA MONICA. The perfect blend of bohemian and glam. Home of great food, local eats, shopping galore, swanky lounges and boho chic cafés.

THE VENICE BEACH VIBE. BE STILL MY HEART. Don’t let the seedy appearance and unusual characters, particularly along the circus-like Ocean Front Walk, skew your first impression of this place. It is full of character, charm, and offers a beach vibe like no other.
