industry & internet friends. I love how all of my friends from LA all hang out with the same cliques / crowd when they come to the bay, & when all of my friends & I are in LA, we hang out with the same cliques / crowd over there, too. That's the industry bringing all of creative people with similar style & interests together, lol.
My stay was dope. I'm the biggest slut for Harry Potter. I've read all of the books, & it's one of those things where you can't play a fair game of trivia with me in because I know all of the answers to all things related to it. The owls finally sent me my letter, so I went to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. I haven't been to Universal Studios in a while, & I don't really like amusement parks anymore because I hate waiting in two-hour lines for a two minute ride, especially when it's hot, everyone's in my way, etc. I grew up way too spoiled & privileged to know shit about patience, & I need everything when I want it & when I ask for it. I still had to re-live my childhood though. I bought six wands, & I spent $100 worth of candy at Honey Dukes because I bought a shit-load of Chocolate Frogs because I was tryna get the rare Dumbledore card, lol. My favorite candy was the Chocolate Fudge Flies, & I went to the Butter Beer stand so many times that the people running it started to recognize me, lol. I had so much fun casting spells, too.
I got my donuts from both Lard Lad Donuts in Simpson's Land & Voodoo Donuts outside of the park in City Walk, & when I went to Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, I almost forgot how old I am because I wanted everything, lol. I was also buzzin', cuzzin'. We bought so many cans of Modelos from the little kiosks all around the amusement park, & we were just drinking them one after the other while waiting in line for rides.
I got my hair done while I was in LA, & I got purple roots, & my friends & I ate at Barton G, one of my favorite places to eat at when I'm in LA. I got my tall ass Marie Antoinette dessert platter, lobster poptarts, nitro cock-tails served on Audrey Hepburn coasters, whom I love very much, by the way. In fact, I'm seeing "Roman Holiday" on Broadway this summer. <3
I partied & clubbed at 1 OAK, Hyde, The Line Hotel, Sky Bar, etc., kicked it at the Venice skate park, did photo shoots for some of my friends in LA, went to the Museum of Death, ate at Urth Cafe, Laduree, Bottega Louie, Shake Shack, Egg Slut, etc., went shopping, went to the Melrose Trading Post, the Kate Sommerville skin-care clinic, & my friends & I bought food, climbed a billboard, & ate there at sunset. I also ate one of those lollipops with the scorpion in the middle, & here's the verdict if you've never tried one, but want to at some point in your life for whatever reason or just to say that you did, lol: as you can guess, the lollipop itself's really sweet, but once you get to the scorpion, it's hella salty.
I guess the only down-side to my trip to LA is that their dirty & polluted ass air was bad for my skin. My face was in dire need of a face / sheet mask, like, almost every night. Other than that, I had hella fun, & I can't wait to go back again soon, especially in the summer, just in time to watch movies at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
It's always good linking up with my friends from LA, & it was hella fun, but don't get me wrong. Even when I'm not on vacation, my homies & I make our own fun. I'm back home in the bay now, & the weather's been hella bipolar, so my outfits have been bipolar, too, so here I am wearing a knit white long sleeve with ripped detailing, some ripped high-waisted shorts, & my Bred 1's.
