L.A. (March 18-21)

I decided that I would take a quick trip to LA.  I managed to write my very first Huff Post piece that was finally accepted on the plane entitled, “How to Survive a Mid-Flight Meltdown“. For three nights I stayed at The Standard Hollywood which had a great pool. I believe I am SO spoiled now, but the sheets and towels were rough like sandpaper 🙁

I finally went to LACMA and had an impromptu trip to the Le Brea Tarpits.

I managed to meet with some great people and had some great food at Pearl’s Roof Top, Catch and Gracias Madre. Of course, no trip to LA would be complete without at least one celeb sighting of Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian and a late night trip to In-N-Out.  The Bouchon in Beverley Hills is massive and I got to reconnect with a friend from NY over some truffle popcorn and white wine. Not a bad way to end the trip.

Thanks for the Vitamin D!
