Vlog 3: The Broad

The Broad is definitely the most anticipated museum that I’ve been wanting to visit ever since I moved to LA. It’s a contemporary art museum in downtown LA on Grand Avenue and I’ve got a great collection ranging from postwar to the contemporary to a variety of exhibitions that are actively being introduced.

Through this vlog, I take you with me as I explore The Broad for the first time!

Enjoy.

P.S. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get tickets for the Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors exhibition, but I hope that one day (before January 1, 2018) that I can go and experience nearly two decades of Yayoi Kusama’s work. I’m definitely looking forward to experiencing her most iconic kaleidoscopic environments.

VLOG 2: The Grove

Moving away from home for the first time, might’ve been the hardest thing for me to do. But having to leave a ton of my clothes, makeup, skin care products, shoes and bags was just as hard (very dramatic, I know)!

Why? Because I’ve always been the type of girl who would express herself through her clothes and makeup, just like Carrie Bradshaw. Now with that said, that meant that I would’ve been given the chance to change my wardrobe and buy new things once I’ve settled down in LA.

Now that I’ve finally settled down and saved up a handful of paychecks, I came across a beautifully designed retail and entertainment complex, called The Grove.

The Grove is an outdoor retail and entertainment destination in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles. It has an 14-theater Cineplex with an old-fashioned grand marquee and vertical signage, a whole range of yummy restaurants to eat at, a huge three-story Barnes & Nobles and a variety of major retailers such as Nordstrom, Nike, Sephora, Gap and more!

It has been architecturally designed to have the feel of a “small-town past” or “an old downtown that has come back to life.” The architecture of The Grove has been designed to be nostalgic and similar to the styles in LA during the 30’s and 40’s. The main features of The Grove include a crowned roadbed, a lake, a bridge, a double-decker trolley that traverses through The Grove, dancing fountain and a ton of green space (a small field by the lake). My favourite part, the building that is designed to resemble a London train station!

This is not your ordinary two-story indoor mall, but a place where you can really see yourself meeting up with friends to shop, dine and enjoy spending time together – which is why I love these place so much!

I hope you enjoy this short video of some of the things I love about The Grove.

VLOG 1: home

It’s been over a month since I moved to Los Angeles and I am so happy where life has been taking me.

This video depicts a few of my favourite views from my new home and other sorts of things that make me happy, such as flowers, leaves, trees, palm trees and the sunlight.

Enjoy!
