5:04PM, Melrose Avenue

L.A. is where everything is at. Everything you can imagine. Los Angeles is home to rich, glamorous Hollywood stars and families barely getting by in concentrated poverty neighborhoods. Cornerstore mom and pop venues to Michelin star restaurants. Food from every culture. Music around the world. Art everywhere.

At any time, any place, many hearts who claim the diverse city of Los Angeles as home have such deep stories.

At 5:04PM, a mother of five is getting off her first job to pick up her kids from after school daycare before rushing off to her second job. A Hollywood-bound barista is sneaking in to work after leaving mid-shift for an audition. A boy is at marching band practice, pushing through endurance training to be the best in his drumline. A girl is getting dressed in her sexiest outfit before heading off to meet her friends at the club.

Me? At 5:04PM, I’m heading to Alfred’s coffee place on Melrose Avenue for a treat – a delicious macchiato in a chocolate cone – while I find some time to write this SL entry. Walking there, I’m surrounded in rich culture and art, blessed to be around such creativity and talent. The walls are covered in color and the streets are filled with people from every corner of the world. Welcome to L.A. – the city of dreams. What’s your story?

DayDate – Picnic on the Beach

Hello my pretty peoples.  So I had a nice little surprise when I logged on to SL.  The husband planned out a little picnic to go with the blog idea I wanted to do.  He set it all up and made it all pretty and amazing for me to take a picture.  So the details of what I am using are listed below.  Also I am listing the clothing that he is wearing too!

I am wearing all kinds of great things in today’s post.  Lets start with the outfit, JUST BECAUSE just placed out this amazing cuteness of an outfit, it was perfect for the beach picnic.  With the fatpack you will get a HUD that will allow you to change the colors of the material to make it however you want to look.  I was totally in love with red of the shorts, which for me is different, I am usually the girl that will reach for the blues instantly, but I was really loving this look.  I paired it with her tube top that matches the shorts, you can change the colors and pick the look that would go good for you ♥

I am wearing one of my favorite hairs, which was at a past Hair Fair event, but I am sure you can grab this style at the main store now.  The bucket hat is great for keeping the sun out of your eyes and even has a HUD that allows you to pick from different colors.  There are a couple of Logo’s for you to pick from … but I liked the plain look a little more.  I chose the blue for this look and I really loved it it made my outfit look ♥

Last but one of my favs is the REIGN sandals. IF you hurry over to REIGN you can get these very adorable shoes for 150L in the super huge mega fatpack.  I say this because its three different pairs of shoes in the pack! This is a limited deal so you might want to do this one first.  Now these platform sandals are amazing and this as well comes with a HUD that allows you to pick from some summer patterns.  These are that main store, in the front of the building on the table. ♥
