If you’re ever in the LA area and want an automatic “look like you know what you’re doing photo shoot” head over to the Bates Motel on Sunset Boulevard. The natural lighting there is absolutely amazing, you could use your camera phone and kill it, and girls your highlight and Contor in this light is fire! For any of you that don’t personally know me, I love photographers, and their different creative eyes! I had always wanted to shoot at the Bates Motel, so when @studiomicastro hit me up and wanted to shoot, I was like “I know a spot!” I wore my favorite little lace top that my granny got me from Rue21 (yes I know I just wore it in a post, and I give no fucks, it’s adorable) black leather pants by blanknyc (so hot, huge mistake), laced with my favorite Reeboks.
The little “perfect out of a storybook” town called La Jolla is one of my favorites in Cali. The town itself is so beautiful and quaint that you’ll feel right at home, and if the curse of “addictive boutique shopping” plagues you, this town has your remedy! I was only a few miles away from there so I absolutely had no reason not to put on a little sporty spice inspired outfit and head out.
I love me some nature, so l set Waze to La Jolla Cove and set out for a little shopping and to sea lion watching. The view at the cove is absolutely breathtaking. There are people kayaking, snorkeling, and there’s even a cave. Once you get over to the sea lions you can literally walk around them, they’re just chill’n. They’re so loud, and the smell of them makes you want to put on a face mask because you can feel your nose hairs singeing, but you don’t care because they’re really beautiful creatures of nature and it’s tranquil to watch them so up close. There’s no guided tour, it’s just you and them. You can even go snorkeling down below in the cove with the sea lions, and they interact with you quite a bit. So If you find yourself on your way to San Diego or passing La Jolla for some reason, STOP! The town is angelic and the interaction with nature is everything! Continue reading “Love me some La Jolla”
