hi guys! i’m reporting from LA today…and loving it! the weather is phenomenal and i’m still recovering from an incredible whirlwind tour of the city yesterday thanks to the fantastic bauer sisters- susie and heidi of rock scissor paper. we hit the ground running and they took me to lunch at chateau marmont (where we saw sienna miller and rhys ifans) and i fell in love with the hollywood hills- the homes were so beautiful. and the views! then we took a quick walk in runyan canyon (photo above) and drove through some beautiful neighborhoods on our way to silverlake, where we briefly stopped to say hi to the reform school crew and grab some tea at intelligentsia (yum). afterwards i met up with a college friend and her husband and took the bumper-to-bumper ride to santa monica for a delicious seaside dinner. it was quite a day and rather than try to fight my jet lag i’m going to give myself a break and take the morning off. there’s a city guide coming up next but then i’m going to head off to prepare for the meetup and enjoy the day in LA. see you wednesday with a full day of posting!
and in my traveling daze yesterday i forgot to welcome one of my favorite artists of all time to the d*s guest blog: amy ruppel! amy will be joining us this week from her hometown of portland, oregon to share posts on her favorite artists and portland spots. click here to check out her first two posts!
