los angeles, I'm yours.

Happy February! Where exactly did January go? I'm not sure, but it's gone; and I couldn't be more excited for February. First up? The BF and I are taking a long weekend and jetting down to his hometown of Los Angeles for some much overdue vaca time in the California sunshine. We're staying at a beachfront, boutqiue hotel in Venice Beach, meeting up with some old friends over cocktails, and buzzing around the city snapping up pictures and eating brunch to our heart's content. (Oh, and maybe we're excited to possibly pull the trigger on this couch from CB2. We might have dedicated our trip to San Fran last spring to sitting in it, but hey - if it gets us out of town...I'm all for it. It's so perfect.)

Talk about perfect timing, but have you seen JCrew's latest photoshoot for their spring collection? The effortless models use Tinsletown's iconic landmarks for the backdrop of their shoot complete with fun Hollywood facts. Love!

I hope we can stage our own photoshoot around town that look half as adorable as these photos do. I'll post a recap of our adventures when we get back!

Also, has anyone seen Sofia Coppola's latest film "Somewhere?" I've been dying to see it. Los Angeles films are always eerie, and films that look into the lonely lives of celebrities always fascinate me. (But how can they be so lonely?! Their lives look so fabulous on the cover of magazines and as clips on Entertainment Tonight...right?)

Quick synopsis: Johnny (Stephen Dorff) is living at the legendary Chateau Marmont hotel in Hollywood. Then, his 11-year-old daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) from his failed marriage arrives unexpectedly at the Chateau. Their encounters encourage Johnny to face up to where he is in life and confront the question that we all must: which path in life will you take?

Bonus: it's filmed entirely on location.
