Holiday Festivities from sunny Los Angeles ~

Tis the season for parties, and winter festivities. Living in LA makes for slightly inventive celebrations to the holiday season. Since we only experience one season all year round, the concept of snow is not exactly understood. Although we have ready-made ice skating rinks in various locations, there’s no place for sledding, building snowmen or snowshoeing through the forest. Luckily I have time at home to make up for all of these activities. Nonetheless we’ve started to create our own rituals for this time of year.

For me personally there have been many girls’ outings! This is one of my favorite things, considering I’m single and all about the female ventures; nights full of shopping, dinners and chats about future adventures and plans. I’ll dress up and head out to any number of the following:

Blushington to start off the glam

The Grove or the Americana for shopping

A friend’s place for that cozy homelike feel

Studio City outings, namely: The Black Market on Ventura Blvd. for simple FUN

BIG Thanks to cool guy Gerald, funny gal Lauren, sweet stuff Kellen and my girl Ashley for making the last couple of weeks SO inviting and exciting. Cheers to you all and everyone who was involved in the celebrations.

As far as my family goes…. read on! Yay for snow!
