Greystone Mansion

Greystone Mansion

Eddie and I headed over to Greystone Mansion Easter morning to do a little exploring before getting together with family. It’s a property I’ve never visited before and it was such a beautiful day, I knew it would make for a lovely holiday outing. The estate is owned by the city of Beverly Hills and the grounds are open to the public daily - no fee for parking or admission! It’s such a hidden gem, tucked away in the hills with a breathtaking view of the city. We didn’t explore inside the mansion itself as it’s is only open during special programs and events, but I hope to take a peek inside at some point in the future. The grounds alone are worth a viz though!

Concrete Geometric

Concrete Geometric

As part of my LA Loves series, the goal is to share my fave businesses, places to visit, and fab things to do right here in Los Angeles. I love learning and experiencing new things, and LA is a great place for workshops. I’ve learned how to make candles, clay wall hangings, meditate, and make the perfect cup of pour over coffee! Over the weekend Eddie and I had the pleasure of taking a Concrete Geometric Workshop - we learned techniques for working with concrete and color to create gorge planters. It was such a blast and the Concrete Geometric studio is super gorge. I wanted to share with you some pics from the day, and what I created. Makers gonna make!! Keep scrollin for all the fun :)

Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens

Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens

I'm on a quest to visit all the Los Angeles botanical gardens I can get my mitts on and finally crossed this oasis off my list over the weekend. The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens is a wonderful educational and research institution in San Marino, and the grounds are absolutely stunning. First things first - the Huntington Library is massive! Eddie and I didn't even see half of the stuff we wanted to, like the Japanese, Australian, and Rose gardens. We'll definitely have to go back and explore more on a second trip. The two gardens we explored this time around are the ones I most wanted to see - the Jungle Garden & Desert Garden.

The LA Arboretum

If you're looking to spend a beautiful day outside surrounded by flowers, plants, and PEACOCKS, look no further than the Los Angeles Arboretum & Botanic Garden. Over 127 acres of beauty in the city of Arcadia, the grounds are seriously breathtaking. And the peacocks!! Over 200 of them live here, and they roam happy and free.

29Rooms From Refinery29

29Rooms From Refinery29

There aren't many places that can truly make you feel like a kid again, but 29Rooms is one of them. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak of this magical adult playground last week before they opened to the public - certain installments were actually still being constructed! Many thanks to Google & Refinery29 for letting me witness the magic. It was such a fun-filled afternoon! So many artists, activists, and visionaries contributed to this pop-up interactive experience, and the result is truly a magical, inspiring fun-house that really gets you thinking. I can't commend the creators enough for fusing activism, art, and technology all together! I wanted to share with you some pics of my fave rooms - especially since 29Rooms is only in LA for a couple weeks, and I know that (v unfortunately) a lot of people won't get to experience it for themselves. But if you do get a chance to go and explore, I can't recommend it enough. Go, go, go! All images taken of me were snapped by my friend Onelia :)
