J&T Wedding

My purpose on this trip was to attend my cousin’s wedding.  I love weddings.  It feels so good to listen to two people pledging their love for each other.  Just like labours, every wedding is different.  The wedding was held at the Colony House in Anaheim.  It’s a beautiful venue with high ceilings, brick walls, a fireplace, and an exquisite succulent wall.

They are so cute together!  Joyce is very petite like maybe 5 feet which makes her even more adorable.

The Broad

I absolutely love museums.  Actually, I love arts in general.  When my sister asked if I was interested in visiting a contemporary museum in LA, I jumped at it.  I know that I will be visiting more historical museums in Europe so this is a good time to visit a modern one.

The Broad was pretty amazing.  Short and sweet I would say.  It only has two floors of modern art including conceptual art which was good enough for us.  Although admission is free, you should reserve tickets in advance to avoid any disappointment.

The Broad (rhymes with road) is right in downtown, LA.

Jeff Koons – Bouquet of Tulips

Get used to these three faces – you will see a lot of them in my Europe posts =)

Barbara Kruger – Untitled (“Your body is a battleground”), 1989

Robert Therrien – Under the Table

We had so much fun posing with these humongous chairs and table.

Fall 2017 Giveaway!

Can’t believe it’s fall soon!  I’m totally a summer girl, but I can’t help loving all things fall such as the beautiful leaves, crisp air, and pumpkin spice lattes.

Michael Kors is one of my favourite brands for handbags.  I have a few handbags from them, and I even carried one on my recent Europe trip, although it broke down on me.  One of the buckles came off, so it’s being repaired now.  I also love their wallets and I have chosen two beautiful wallets for you to win!  This contest is open to CANADA AND USA residents only.  All you have to do is follow the rafflecopter, but here’s the catch.

Please only CHOOSE ONE WALLET that you like.  This is to ensure that I don’t have the same participants entering (which is only fair and give more opportunities to others).  I will be validating these entries, so be honest.  Those who entered on both giveaways will automatically be disqualified.

*Remember following me on Instagram is mandatory.

Las Vegas 2017

We stayed in LA for two days and then headed to Las Vegas to catch the Mariah Carey’s concert (which was phenomenal btw).  We stayed at the Palazzo.  Originally, we only booked a regular room, but my husband couldn’t pass up on a great deal and upgraded to a suite.  I noticed that you get a better deal in person than booking online.

Los Angeles 2017

We flew to LA right after San Fran.  I love it because I don’t have to sit in a car for 6 hours aka I’m not a road trip person.  Not because I hate driving, I just can’t stand boredom.  I also have the world’s tiniest bladder so I avoid drinking water and I hate looking for washrooms.  Well, you know what I mean, right?

I have been to LA many times because my mom’s family lives there.  I love visiting my grandmother and all my cousins, but it’s definitely not a place I want to stay for a long time.  Before showing pics of all the incredible food I consumed, I want to share three things I’ve never experienced in LA.
