and its one more night in hollywood.

happy thursday blogger land! I am doing a happy, silly dance on the inside while celebrating reaching 100 followers this week. I know it seems like a small number in comparison to some of my other semi-celeb blogger buddies, but for a little blog that just started out as something fun for me to do to pass the time and meet some super nifty people, I am pretty pumped at how it has grown. I am contemplating what to do to mark the occasion and I think another give away is in order. there is a special something that I have in mind, but you will have to wait until next week when I am back in san francisco. I can say that you are going to want to check back. :)
on to round two of the road trip photos.
after spending the day shopping and basking in the california sun, we hurried back to the hotel to get ready for the film premiere. the feature that we were there to see was called "elle", and it was the first time it was ever going to be seen by an audience!
we were the first ones in line and we had the perfect view for when all of the actors were arriving. they kept pulling up next to us in their "blacked out" escalades and town cars. we saw most of the major stars and even were able to talk to a few of the people in the movie as well as the directors and producers. it was interesting to see all of the people who made the movie come back together.
since the film festival was in newport beach, it had more of a laid back and beachy vibe to it. we wanted to look super chic but not too dressed up. I think we pulled it off nicely.
I wore a one of my little black dresses with a dark zebra print tunic over, paired with my black leggings and tan wedge sandals. I threw on some accessories and kept my hair casual.

once the film was over, the cast hoped in front of the audience for the Q&A. it was such a small theater that they were maybe 10 feet away from us. cool! after the excitement of the movie we decided that the best place for us to hit on a saturday night would be hollywood. obviously.
we drove for a while all the way down sunset blvd. past chateau marmont, past hollywood blvd and the roosevelt hotel, and past many other famous haunts. when we saw ketchup we decided to pull over and see if we could get in. sadly, we didn't think to make a reservation and the place was packed. we walked up to the bar and looked around for a bit, but ended up having dinner at a funky, outside restaurant below ketchup.

I hope you enjoyed the overload of photos. some of them are courtesy of miss lauren, the photographer extraordinaire. looking back at these is making me miss our trip! there is no better place to be than hollywood on a saturday night. there are so many interesting people out and about and you just feel ridiculously glamorous.

wishing you all a healthy and productive thursday as we inch closer to that weekend. has anyone else tried going the vegan route yet? watching what you are eating? hope I'm not alone out here!

peace and love. :)

  1. Oh, these pictures make me so nostalgic! I spent one truly amazing summer in LA when I was in college. Few things will ever compare. If I hadn't met John and decide to get married right away, I would have totally moved there. Only if I were single, though ;)
