LA, SD, Little Italy

in other words, all over the place. :)

Hi friends! Happy Monday! How’s the day going so far? I’m back home after an amazing trip to IDEA in LA. I’ll be back with a recap from the conference later today, but for now, I thought it would be fun to share some outside adventures and pics from the rest of the weekend.

(Ashley, Giselle, Heather and Bobbi!)

While I was in LA, I stayed at The Standard downtown, and the lovely Jess was my roomie. It was about a mile away from the conference, and was a cool, funky spot with modern aesthetic and retro details.

Some room pics:

The beds were low (and super comfy), and the shower was in the middle of the room.

Bobbi and I ventured up to the rooftop bar, and it had breathtaking views of downtown,

and a pool.

The first night, I thought about going for a swim (= sitting on the step and reading a book) to unwind. I’m glad I checked out the spot first! I would have felt a little weird in my coverup and swimsuit surrounded by clubbers haha.
