Back to L.A: Birthday Trip

So my birthday was Sunday (August 5th) and it was GREAT!! I went back to LA. If you can remember, last April I made a post about going to Cali –>   I’m Going Back to Cali!

I switched up my itinerary this time and kind of went with the flow of things. I can honestly say this trip was better! So let me tell you how it started:


Flight was at 5:50am Friday morning…BUT IT WAS CANCELED. WTF RIGHT! It literally was canceled 2 hours before take off so I had to change my flight. Luckily I did it  just in time because I was one of the last people to board the plane.

I had a layover in Las Vegas, which was cool because I had never been there  and I was able to play the slot machines in the airport. BUT  my flight there was delayed by almost an hour BUT I still kept a positive attitude because it was my birthday weekend.


I FINALLY  got to LA and met up with my friends and what was the first thing we did? SHOTS!!! (Of Fireball of course) then VENICE BEACH!!

Of course we had to experience the nightlife, sooooo we stepped out and I HAD to show out! 38C5A59A-C2AB-44D1-BFB4-CA941D7A26A2BE523F23-2370-49EC-904C-27691EA7B725


Next day, we decided to go to The actual Fashion Nova store at the Burbank mall. Not impressed at all.  Of course there are a few of the actual stores in LA but the one we went to looked very cheap, needless to say. I did find a cute dress there tho 🤷🏽‍♀️

We walked around  a bit in Hollywood,  saw the Hollywood star of fame. We even seen Trump’s star or lack there of since it’s been destroyed.

We got a good recommendation from our Uber for a place to eat called Beauty & Essex. Talk about GOOD FOOD!!

The plan that night was to go out again but uhhhhhh, we tapped  out and was K-O. Embarrassing right lol?

BUT we made up for it the next day lol.


The day of my BIRTHDAY!!

We started off the day hiking at Griffith Park and it was amazing!! VERY high up but we could see the beautiful city!


Then off to Santa Monica beach, which wasn’t too impressive. Too many people and dirty water 😟👎🏾 But we still enjoyed the sand and light sun.

Last but not least, I had to be a little extra for my birthday for the last night and uhhh…. yeah..


Overall, I loved this trip this time around. All my peoples vibed with each other, and we already talking about a trip next year!

Where have y’all traveled to this year so far?

Comment below and let me know!!

I’m Going Back to Cali!

“Visiting a difference place, even for a limited time, deeply affects yours soul and way of thinking.” –Kyra Kyles; Editor-in-Chief of Ebony Magazine

I recently read a short article in Ebony magazine about traveling as I was on a plane heading back home from Los Angeles. How ironic right. I feel like it was a sign to me, and that was KEEP TRAVELING. Everyone needs a break from the realities of home such as work, school, kids, husband, etc.

It has been my dream since I was young to travel to Los Angeles; mainly because I always liked the entertainment industry and L.A is one of the top places for it, plus fashion and of course…the beaches!

Day 1 in Cali, I did the tourist-y things, like visit the Santa Monica Pier, which was okay, but it felt great being on a beach again since the last time was my cruise.

Next day was the Grammy Museum, which was nice to see the different types of music that had won awards. Then that night we (me, my cousin, aunt and friend) went to VENICE BEACH which was crazy fun!! The sunset was AMAZING and made being on a beach is so relaxing.


Day 3 of Cali was visiting the museums like the Madame Tussands Wax Museum, The Hollywood Museum (no photos allowed) and Warner Brother Studio


Anyone who is a Pretty Little Liars fan….I was in ROSEWOOD. Talk about excited!!! I even saw Allison’s house!


Day 4 was Universal Studios. Majority of the rides were 3D and were based upon movies I had never seen before like: Harry Potter, The Mummy and Jurassic Park–(don’t judge me y’all lol. I don’t know why I never seen them). What I did enjoy was walking through the walking dead attraction. For me it was exciting and funny but not so much for my people that were with me.



Overall, I loved my Cali trip. I feel like I didn’t do as much because it seem like there is so much to see. On the list for my next Cali trip:

  • Clubbing
  • shopping
  • hiking
  • spotting a celebrity


LOL I’m out y’all. I hope you enjoy the pics!!!

And remember: TRAVEL, get outside your comfort zone!!
