Hello to all you Los Angelenos,

Little Tokyo, the last place you'd consider finding an exotic German sausage grill...

So, it was a random Wednesday night....but, I decided to spice it up a little...
What did I do, you ask? Its Wednesday, could something cool possibly be going down?
Yes, my friends. Fun things do exist in Los Angeles on a Wednesday night.
I thank my sister for dragging me with her to watch Tamar Kaprelian, Brendan James, and Boyce Avenue live at the Roxy. I listened to some very cool music and had a great time. If you ever find yourself bored in Los Angeles, make sure to check out the small concert scene we have (think the Roxy, Whiskey a Go Go, The Mint, The Viper Room...) here in Los Angeles. You'd really be surprised!
For one, these concerts are extremely intimate, so you don't have to squint or take binoculars to see the performer on stage. You'd actually see them singing (not lip-syncing :]) on stage with their heart and soul. As an audience member, you will view an extremely inspiring panorama. Plus, each ticket will cost you no more than $20....$60-$100 less than those "mainstream" Staples Center concerts we attend. Take my word for it folks....you'd have nothing short of a great time!
Also, I gotta give some love to the most amazing singer/songwriter I've ever seen perform live, Tamar Kaprelian. She's a gem! I got to listen to her sing and was fortunate enough to meet her after her show. I loved her cover of "A Whole New World," and you guys would love "New Day" or "Sinner or A Saint." She's got my seal of approval, check her out Los Angelenos! For more about Tamar, please visit http://www.tamarkaprelianmusic.com
Have you ever seen a cool underground band that we should check out? Let me know!! Until next time folks...ROCK ON ;)

Since I've dedicated this blog to everything and anything Los Angeles, I thought hey, why not tell my loyal readers about an up and coming designer (and Trojan alumna, Fight On!) based out of LA, KEEMIA.

Where have I been?
- Watch my sappy TV shows (Gossip Girl, 90210)...A persons drama is another persons pleasure, even if it's not reality!
- Go shopping. Who said retail therapy wasn't the best thing ever!
- Visiting local beaches. THANK YOU PACIFIC OCEAN! The smell, the sound, the environment, the people...need I say more?
- Listen to a good song. A song that keeps me time and puts a smile on my face, Temper Trap's "Sweet Disposition." Just plug those white earphones, close your eyes, and watch the clouds. Yah, that might sound fruity to some of you, but, if you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, heed my word and try it out.
- And finally, take time out of your day and spend it with the ones you love. My boyfriend is my rock and savior. He really keeps me in check and prevents me from going mad. Talk to someone that actually listens, encourages, and motivates you to do better. It's quite therapeutic. (Thanks Alessandro :D).

What's your first thought of having lunch in Downtown Los Angeles?
Well, mine involves eating those greasy, bacon wrapped street corner hot dogs with an unhealthy side of fries. It seems like those carts are stalking you around every street corner in L.A. I never thought anything classy, elegant, or modern could exist in this city (excuse me for my cynicism all you die hard Los Angelinos), until I took a walk.
Satuday afternoon, a couple of my sorority sisters and I decided to celebrate one of our sister's birthdays in Downtown at a famous eatery, Bottega Louie. Since it's Valentine's/President's Day weekend, we were greeted by a massive line of people. It seemed intimidating, especially because we didn't want to wait an hour to be seated, causing us to flee immediately.
After wandering around for about an hour and a half, taking peeks inside cafes and restaurants and roaming the streets of L.A. mindlessly, we decided to take the "road well traveled." It was decided; we were to walk towards the Standard Hotel. I had never been there before, but, I was familiar with the Standard's reputation for a modern atmosphere and architecture. As we walked from Main St. to Flower, Downtown, for once in my life, seemed to be such a cool, hip, and happening place to be. I saw the unique things, people, stores, and culture this city had to offer. As much as we bickered and moaned about walking a couple of blocks instead of driving (typical Los Angelino behavior), discovering this city by foot deferred this day from being an experience, but created a full-fledged adventure for all of us.

It's not New York City, Paris, or Tokyo, but, Los Angeles is chalk-full of life, culture, and surprises. Each street corner offers something new, something unexpected, or something you might love or hate. I was born and raised in this city, and, unfortunately, I don't know it as well as I should!
With that said, it's my goal to tell you, my readers, things about Los Angeles that I discover, experience, and eventually embrace. Hopefully, you'll come to love Los Angeles as much as I will by reading this blog. Feel free to recommend, write, interact, discuss, and advise me of things you admire about this city. I'll be sure to put them on my list of things to see/do.
With that said, I invite you take a peek into my life as a student and aspiring publicist living in the beautiful city of Los Angeles, CA.
