My Weekend Adventure in HOLLYWOOD

I LOVE LA! Actually, I love visiting Southern California to see my good friends, enjoy the unbeatable warm weather, and the endless shopping. Plus, there is so much going on in sunny So-Cal like Coachella this weekend, although I didn’t go. Maybe next year. Sooooo, Friday after work I packed up and drove the five hours from San Francisco to LA down Interstate 5. (If you want to make the drive faster, I suggest investing in a radar detector).
Near Universal Studios in LA

There’s nothing like a little Hollywood Hollyweird hit-and-run accident to start off the weekend. icon sad

My friend and I were stopped at red light on Sunset Blvd. around 10:30 pm when all of a sudden, there was a loud BAM!!!!

Ugh, who hit my car? After my neck finished slamming back into my headrest, I turned around to see a Britney Spears circa ’07 look-alike, only more bloated and disheveled, behind the wheel of a silver Lexus with a blank drunken looking stare on her face.

The scene of the accident

I flung my door open and rushed to check the damage on my car’s bumper and exchange insurance info. She motioned as though she was going to pull over and that’s when I saw a crazy look in her eye. She swerved around my car, took a right at the first corner and floored it!

“WHO did this girl think she was, Lindsay Lohan!?” 

Get back in my CAR!” I screamed to my friend. 

“Did you get her license plate number?” I asked over and over as I frantically started my car.

“Yea, I think I got it,” he said ,but he wasn’t sure.

I took a right at the same corner just in time to see her brake lights making a left on a side street a few blocks down. To make a long, tense story short, by the time we hit Sunset and Vine, I was right behind her and my friend was dialing 911 with the Lexus license plate number. Then I pulled up along side her car to make sure I had a good look at her future felon face as we snapped a blurry pic with my cell phone.

The dispatcher told me to stop and file a police report as she sped off when the light turned green. The two LAPD officers who showed up to take the report seemed less than competent to be dealing with minor traffic collisions, but hopefully she’ll get charged with a hit and run. What a night!

If only these two guys were around to help me that night.

Ok, so moving on….The weather was much warmer than I anticipated so I had to go buy some summer clothes on a major budget to get me through the weekend.
There are SO many stores in LA with affordable clothes.
Here are some of the LA fashion bargains I found: (Under $20) 

IMG 6104
Black Cotton Maxi Dress -$16.99 (Fashion Q)

IMG 20110418 132947
Fedora with floral strap- $13.99 (Fashion Q)

IMG 6119
I may not wear feather hair extensions, but feather earings can be fun. icon smile
 (Under $5 at Forever 21, Denim shirt is also F21)

IMG 6159

Floral top-$11.99 (It was too hot outside to wear with my high waisted flare jeans)
(Sandals-SODA, top-Fashion Q)


AND here’s a few tips for a happy California road trip:

 Stay fueled: There are IN-N-OUT’s everywhere

Yum! My favorite fast food ever! 
Did you know they have chili peppers on their “secret menu?”

 Nothing spices up a road trip like daring your passengers 
to eat a SUPER hot chili pepper icon smile

3 road trip essentials -Sunflower seeds, mags and Red Bull

 Don’t forget your patience because driving through central California gets BORING

UPDATE: My favorite Summer hairstyle is the fishtail braid (not pictured in this post because I couldn’t figure out how to do it). Here is a great tutorial below icon smile



Here’s to a SUMMER of FUN road trips!

    You look beautiful in these outfits! I’m from Southern California, and your tips are pretty right on :) The only thing I would add, is if you go as far down as San Diego, be sure to partake in the hole-in-the-wall Mexican food. The best! :) Oh and so right about LA – some strange people! :)
