My favorite outfit forever is probably sneakers and a dress. I just don't like wearing pants and even less I like wearing heals. So this is the most comfy outfit combo of all times. I swear.
It kind of feels surreal to be in LA because it feels like a completely different city than when I was here working with music a year ago. Everything feels different this time! Also, last time I was here I lived in a very calm area where you had to have a car to get anywhere (literally anywhere, even the grocery store) and I stayed in a villa. This time we're staying at a hotel in the absolute center of downtown, so here it's just a minus to have a car. And you can see everything from Hollywood to downtown through our windows.
If you're on a family vacation and want to relax, go to the beach etc, I definitely recommend staying somewhere in the more calm areas (Santa Monica, Venice, Long Beach etc) but if you want to have action 24/7 and everything you need just around the corner I recommend downtown. The big minus about being located in the middle of downtown is that it's impossible to get anywhere. It takes forever. Yesterday I think we sat in an uber for about 4 hours and to walk that distance would have taken an hour. The traffic is constantly insane downtown, no matter in what direction you're heading. Last time I was in LA I thought the traffic was bad but now when I've seen what downtown traffic looks like it's on a whole other level.
Also a thing I've been thinking about a lot is these uber drivers. Now when I go everywhere with my husband it's fine but I don't think I'd ever put a foot in an uber if I was alone. Yesterday one uber driver told us a bunch of his drug stories and strippers that used to get naked in his car. Then he started pointing out every single strip club he could spot and joked in a nasty way the whole ride. I pretty much sat there thinking about wether I would tell him what a creep he was or just shut my ears. And trust me, the traffic jams had never felt as slow as that time.
Now I'm craving pizza so I think it's time for lunch. :) Big love!
