Last weekend I escaped to the city of angels–that wonderfully mesmerizing microcosm and equally atrocious lattice of freeways and crush of people called Los Angeles. Specifically, I was back downtown with my friend Brian, who is always up for adventures. And by adventures I mean stuffing our faces with delicious food from Eggslut and then proceeding to stagger all over the streets in egg coma.
The day started off innocuously enough at Grand Central Market, where I reunited with my forever love, the Avo Burger, and the infamous Slut:
The brioche bun on that burger is really good. I’d happily eat it on its own.
I saw this while walking around post-lunch. I like the reflections of windows onto the left building wall.
It’s been a while since I’ve been to the Last Bookstore, so down Spring Street we went to peruse this lovely trove of books.
On the second floor exists the sci-fi/fantasy genre, international/other language books and media, and a whole corridor of discounted $1 books.
It was a nice day to be out–75F and balmy. I was surprised I was comfortable in just a plain tee! I’m usually bundled and layered to the nth degree.
After browsing the bookstore we headed into the Arts District to take some portraits.

I really like the simplicity of an all-monochrome scheme. Granted if I were standing out in the sun with no breeze all day in dark colors, I might not be such a happy gal. But this was comfortable and simple and I felt confident and soignée as Kali would put it.
Just about a mile away from the Arts District is Little Tokyo. There is a lot of great Japanese food and wares in this area. Unfortunately we didn’t have any more room for snacks that day, but I did spot some lovely blossoms on the trees lining the street.
It’s always fun to get out of the ordinary and see something new. I greatly enjoy these little day trips just so I can reset my creativity and be inspired for the upcoming week. What do you do to recharge yourself mentally?
