I think Los Angeles is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, which explains why I hated being stuck at my desk in the office…I always wanted to be out, meeting people and exploring. Now with my freedom and iPhone camera, I’m like a tourist of life.

So here’s my little photo review of last week:
Driving along Wilshire Blvd. through MacArthur Park…

…the next day over to Hollywood and then to West Hollywood, for a meeting with the lovely Willow Bay…

…In Beverly Hills for lunch with Colin Firth. Wait, I just want to say that again: Lunch with Colin Firth!!! yipeee!!..(sorry)…regaining my composure…

…Over to Century City, to the Avenue of the Stars…

…Then back in the San Gabriel Valley (stopping in San Marino for a cupcake…)

…Of course I believe cupcakes are the perfect food…

…One of my former bosses at the paper used to tell me: There’s no news in the newsroom. It’s out there in the city…

Where you can feel the sun on your face…

(PS: I’m doing a profile of Colin for the LA Times. It’s set to run in a couple weeks.)

    Cupcakes and Colin Firth – lucky, lucky girl!

    your old boss might have had something there! i'm with him. i have seen some amazing things just driving around in obscure places

  5. Brandi says:

    Why, hello, you gorgeous cupcakes. I love the presentation. So perfect.

    And Colin Firth is pretty cool too. It's probably a good thing that you didn't take him to the cupcake place. I would probably have a hard time concentrating on conversation with Colin if these beautiful cupcakes were around…

  6. TheBeautyFile says:

    Agreed…although Colin Firth is a tastier dessert than a cupcake….

    If you need a New York celebrity correspondent, I'm your woman!

  7. Tina says:

    oh yes, actually!! you would be the perfect new york celebrity correspondent!!

    Oh, Colin Firth… swoon.

  13. Sundari says:

    Lucky girl. California must be a pretty nice place to live. Not like the desert climate of some parts of Australia (and I'm not only talking about the obvious ones.)

  26. Nicole Marie says:

    i went to LA to visit my sister this weekend. The traffic was insane!! but all the cute little restaurants made up for it

  27. denise, the prime magpie says:

    Agreed on the cupcakes and I'm in LOVE with their individual bell jar/cake platters. Too beautiful. I wish I had a whole collection of them just to use as jewelry holders/displays!

  28. Karin says:

    Those cupcakes are looking really delicious. But still, if I had to choose between those and Colin Firth, well, I know what the choice would be! :-) Sounds like a lovely week. And beautiful pictures you took, ofcourse!
