Weekly Love: Week 117

This week I completed my UCLA orientation, and I'm really excited for everything to kick off next week. Aside from that, my week has been pretty chilled, and I've been enjoying the free days to really explore Los Angeles, including Santa Monica Beach which was just incredible. I've also unintentionally been becoming rather acquainted with the various restaurants, cafes, diners and take away places in my neighbourhood - our oven is broken so I have not been able to make myself anything hot to eat (the best so far has been In-N-Out!)

1. Lookout 15 on Santa Monica Beach. | 2. Three punnets of delicious strawberries for $5 at Westwood  Village Farmers Market (every Thursday afternoon on Broxton Avenue) | 3. An extra special Sunday morning breakfast of prosciutto wrapped melon served with iced tangerine juice from Trader Joe's. | 4. If you live somewhere hot you need Victoria's Secret's Makeup Primer & Setting Spray in your life. | 5. American diner food, breakfast for dinner at Denny's in Westwood. | 6. The Converse store on 3rd Street (Santa Monica)'s window.



What have you been enjoying this week, and what do you have planned for the weekend? I'm planning on trying to master the Los Angeles metro and head down to Venice Beach.

  1. First of all, In'n'Out burger. Amazing. Did you know that they have a secret menu that you only get if you know what to ask for? Also, you've got to find the Kogi truck while you're there :)
    Secondly, Emily of Incurably Curious. I'm so glad you featured her. Her blog has been one of my favourites for ages. It always makes me chuckle.
    We stayed in the Waldorf Towers for our honeymoon but our suite was nowhere near that swanky!! It looks amazing!! (The receptionists for the Towers entrance have to listen to the same Frank Sinatra CD non-stop!)

  2. UCLA, my alma mater!!! So jealous you just completed your orientation I'd give practically anything to go back. The school, the location, the traditions...everything about the experience was lovely. A random but delish place in westwood is Gushi. They have really cheap teriyaki bowls that are beyond delish! And the fact that in n out is right next to campus is just fab. There's a trader joe's and target now, which were not there when I went to school and so wish it had been. You're going to have so much fun! Good luck!

  5. Go Bruins! Gushi? Is that on the corner of Weyburn as you walk towards the Fox Theatre? If it is the one I am thinking of the bowls from that place smell really good... And I know - Trader Joe's and Target have already saved my life on a regular basis, but I do love Whole Foods!

  7. Okay, so I'm totally going to send you an email with a bunch of things you have to do/must see :)


    Gushi is on Gayley, a little after in n out and before you hit whole foods. It's so good for a cheap good meai! And Kogi is totally a korean bbq truck they have really good fusion food.
