OOTD: Romantic Outing & Garden Adventure

Romantic Outing: Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade

From one of my previous posts I talked about my experience at Santa Monica more specifically the Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade. It has become one of my favorite places to shop at.

I went there another time and decided to record an outfit of the day since I haven't done one in such along time. I like filming outfit of the days like this because it is more interesting. I do not like filming a video about me telling a viewer what I am wearing because you can obviously see it. I like to make outfit of the days more active and relaxing. I will be trying to do this now on.

Sweater Dress - Zara (Kid Section)
Beige Coat - Gmarket
Beige Wedges - Gmarket
Black Quilted Bag - Gmarket
Cross Necklace - Forever 21
Cross Double Ring - Brandy Melville

Garden Adventure: Getty Center

I will start out with photos I took at the Getty Center. The place is so lovely and it is on top of a hill(?). You can see downtown LA (as well as the smog >.<). If you can visit here do so! You just pay for parking and that is it. You take a tram up the hill to the museum. It is such an awesome experience.

Now it is time for the outfit I wore that day.
This is one of my favorite dresses and I got it from H&M, not gmarket (how surprising right?). This dress is definitely great for fall, winter, and spring.

Beige Dress - H&M
Pink Blazer - Gmarket
Sheer Black Tights - Ebay
Beige Wedges - Gmarket
Pink Quilted Bag - Gmarket
Daisy Ring - Forever 21

If you notice, I am trying to update my blog as much as I can before I go back to school. I will try to record some videos prior, that I can upload when I am busy with school work.

Please let me know if you have any requests for me to do, that I can pin point what to do.

Love, Wenjin

Little Tokyo and The Grove

Side note: Sorry this blog post contains mainly photos.
Good after noon! Like I have promised, another blog post about my past few weeks. I had the great opportunity to meet a number of different amazing people. A few youtubers and my personal friends decided to all do a little meet up at Little Tokyo, LA. I must say that this experience was amazing and I wish we could get together more often.

After Little Tokyo, Lynn, Connie, and I decided to go to the Grove. The Grove is an outdoor mall and Connie told me she never went there before. I decided we must take her there before the day is over.

Here is my "Come With Me Vlog" from the experience! ^___^
We are a tad bit goofy right? :]

One thing I am quite thankful besides my lovely subscribers/readers are the friends I have made through youtube. I remember people thought it was quite weird for someone to make friends via. online. However, it is highly possible. We all share a common interest(s), goal(s), and overall attitude about certain things. It is nice to have people to talk to about what you do on youtube and get advice from others who are experiencing what you are doing.

Santa Monica and Cafe Storygarden

No Comments »

Happy New Year everyone! I hoped everyone's holiday was amazing and relaxing. For those who didn't know, I was on a little vacation in LA for 2 weeks. If you are subscribed to my youtube channel you may have notice the recent videos were all recorded in the LA area.

I have a lot to blog about, but I am afraid I cannot fit all I did in one blog post. As a result, I will be doing multiple blog posts with photos as well as details about my trip!

The first thing I will be talking about is my little visit to Santa Monica. My friend and I decided to first meet up at Urth Caffe to grab a bite to each before we head down to the 3rd Street Promenade.

Urth Caffe is a place that serves organic coffee, tea, boba, sandwiches, soups and much more! As I arrived to the location the first thing I notice was the exterior of this place. It looked lovely, but my eyes quickly focused on how packed it was. I am sorry I didn't take any photos of the location, but if you yelp it you will definite see pictures.

I ordered a chicken sandwich (but was given a veggie sandwich, that proves to me I need to learn to speak up!) and a green tea latte. Even though I am not a fan of an all vegetable sandwich, it was delicious. As for the green tea latte it just tasted so clean and not too sweet. I will definitely go there again one day! My friend said to try out their boba next time, it is apparently to die for! There are a few locations all around the LA area, so check out yelp to see if one is near you. :]

After lunch, we decided our next stop was the Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade. For those who do not know what it is, it is basically a huge strip of stores and restaurants. It has become one of my favorite places to shop at whenever I am in LA. The atmosphere is lively and just exciting.

I actually recorded a vlog of my visit to the 3rd street Promenade! If you haven't seen it please do check it out.

Now afterwards, I bid farewell to my friend (she will also be in another blog post) and decided to head to k-town with my boyfriend to grab Kyochon (a korean fast food fried chicken joint) and as well as relax at a cafe called Cafe Storygarden.

I ordered an iced green tea latte and a yogurt strawberry cake. The green tea wasn't very sweet it was a bit bland for my taste. However, the yogurt strawberry cake was absolutely delicious.

The interior of the cafe was extremely cute. All the chairs were mixed matched and the color of the interior was mainly white and beige. It had my name all over it.

Wow, that was a blog post! I am writing this at 12:30AM and I have to wake up earlier tomorrow for my internship. I know for a fact I will not be able to sleep until much later!

Well, this is all for now. I do hope you enjoy reading this post. I will try to update as soon as I can!

Have a wonderful weekend!
