Typespotting: A Street Art Proposal

Typespotting: A Street Art Proposal

The two main men in my life were fawning over that awesome Bar 107 photo booth proposal from last year, not so much because it was at one of their favorite downtown bars, but more so because it ended up on two of their favorite websites. This one is just as awesome in my opinion....
Back in the day: Banksy's Barely Legal, 2006

Back in the day: Banksy’s Barely Legal, 2006

I was just watching a recent MTV interview with Robert Pattinson (shut up) when he mentioned that his beloved co-star, Tai in “Water for Elephants“, was the same elephant at Banksy’s Barely Legal show in Los Angeles a few years back. I was one of many who waited in line for hours, in east L.A.,...
Heart: Carmen Chan

Heart: Carmen Chan

My goal for 2011 was to find inspiration daily: for myself, for my work, for everything else I do. I think I’ve been doing a good job of that so far. (See variations of such attempts on Tumblr, Pinterest, and the new blog.) Another goal I had was to still post about things that I’ve...
To Seattle. With love.

To Seattle. With love.

As you read this, I am finally making my way up the West Coast to Seattle, the only other city I’ve wanted to live in other than Los Angeles. I’ve kept this plan under wraps for months now, even though it’s been twice as long that I’ve felt the need for a change. It’s time....
L.A. Loves: Bottega Louie

L.A. Loves: Bottega Louie

If you’ve been following me for awhile on Twitter, you probably wondered why Bottega Louie never made it to my restaurant list, since I was there on a near weekly basis. That’s because I decided to dedicate a whole post to my favorite restaurant just down the street. Bottega Louie sounds like such a bourgeois...

L.A. Loves: Downtown Desserts

Here’s a list made for my favorite meal – desserts! When I’d think of an idea for a list, I’d always wonder if I could possibly think of close to ten items for it, but I surprise myself and always do. Here are eight spots for your sweet tooth. Paulette Macarons • 333 S Alameda...
L.A. Loves: Downtown Restaurants

L.A. Loves: Downtown Restaurants

This list of restaurants were places that I wanted to eat at time and time again. Whether it was so celebrate a special occasion or to take a break from the studio, these were the chosen few I’d go to. Mendocino Farms • 444 S. Flower Street • http://mendocinofarms.com My favorite sandwiches here have been the...
Downtown Discovery: For the Kids

Downtown Discovery: For the Kids

BF’s nieces and nephews have been in my life since the oldest one was but a tiny 4 year old who is now learning how to drive. I don’t have nieces and nephews of my own, so I love them as if they were. Over the weekend we honored our three-year-old tradition of taking them out...
All is bright

All is bright

Anticipation. A new year brings a new city, new career, new inspiration, a new life. Festively decked out in sparkles and shine for the holidays, but also in hope of a brighter future. May we all find brighter days in 2011.
Tell me where the light is

Tell me where the light is

For Christmas, BF gifted me with some new wardrobe pieces that will be perfect for the colder climate we’ll soon be living in. Some were on the wishlist, some were items I’d never even think to buy myself, but all were perfect additions to my closet. I think I’m going to let him pick out...
Little Joy

Little Joy

Christmas 2010: The Christmas that the Well discovered what a ‘present’ is – something to unwrap for the toys and treats waiting inside. He then made it his mission to help me open the ones under the tree, and seek out others in hidden places. Hope you find joy of all shapes and sizes this...
L.A. Loves: Downtown Shops

L.A. Loves: Downtown Shops

Putting together this list made me realize I don’t do much downtown shopping for clothes. So instead here is a general list of stores with one extra, because you can never have enough places to shop at. And I just finished shopping for Christmas gifts at some of these stores today, so hope this helps...
