Better late than never. Here are some INSTAGRAM snaps from the City of Angels

 Cotton candy larger than my head
 Gorgeous shot of Venice Beach. It's a different story on the other side of that sign. 
UMAMI of the best burgers I've ever had, and I am a burger aficionado. The Santa Monica location is located right next to FRED SEGAL, so you can shop while you wait for a table. 
 Rodeo Drive is so pretty in the evening, and the shops aren't half bad either. 
Candid camera in a skirt c/o SWAY BOUTIQUE
 To get as close to the Hollywood sign as you can possible get, use the address 3000 Canyon Lake Drive 90068. It's well worth the trek up there. 
 Red velvet ice cream, red velvet waffle cream cone, red velvet cupcake crumbles at SPRINKLES ICE CREAM.Cupcakes located right next door (Beverly Hills location). #nom

I picked up this dress for $29 on the clearance rack at Urban Outfitters. I was unsure abt the print, but it was drawing me in at the same I bought it. When I got home and tried it on, I fell in love with the print AND the drop waist! I think this might be my new fav silhouette.

so hollywood

I don't know what to talk about...the BANANA REPUBLIC X MILLY COLLECTION (all on sale now) or my trip to LA. I love them both so much, but I guess I should let the outfit speak for itself. The shorts are awesome right?

As for the trip, obviously I spent some time playing tourist! This particular day we were supposed to go riding bikes by the beach but it was chilly down by the water. So what's the next best thing to riding bikes?Shopping!!! We headed to West Hollywood/Robertson Boulevard, where we spotted Marlo Hampton shopping in Chanel with a sugar daddy nice older gentleman.

After some retail therapy and "star" gazing, I had the bright idea to get as close to the Hollywood sign as possible. So we hopped in our snazzy white mustang and drove up, up, up and did just that! The photo op was totally worth all the popping that my ears did.

blogger break

Headed out of town for the 4th but not before I check out Mrs. Carter tomorrow night! I’ll be back to blogging before you know it, but in the meantime be sure to follow me and my escapades on INSTAGRAM

ETA: I really don’t have words to adequately describe how much of an amazing performer Beyonce is. This was my 3rd time seeing her, and she gets better and better and is more than worth every bit of the $XXX I paid to see her. She performed for 2 hours straight, had so many costume changes I lost count, flew across the crowd (see below), danced her a$$ off and did it all while sounding even more flawless than she does on CD. No joke. No exaggeration….
