If you live in LA you probably have heard of Projection LA...unless you live under a giant, sound proof rock. In a nutshell, there has been a major eyesore in the neighborhood of Silverlake that was turned into an art piece by an artist named Vincent Lamouroux. When I first moved to Silverlake I always stared at the dilapidated motel and thought- ew. The motel has a lot of history that goes along with it- both good and lots of bad. But before they tear it down to make way for luxury apartment buildings, it took one final bow and went out in style. 

This project was a great reminder to me why I love living here. A constant flow of energy and creating is what I need to feed my own creative juices and push my motivation to get off the couch. So cheers to all of life's surprises. Keep people guessing I say!

  9. I never heard of the hotel at all so I differently live underneath a rock in the ocean or something lol. I love Los Angeles because it always goes at a fast pace and there's constant change. That's why I'm moving to Santa Monica in a few weeks. Ahhh so excited too so I get to connect with more bloggers.

    I love the maxi dress! It's so subtle ♡
