As I mentioned last week, I recently got to go to LA for a business trip. It was my first trip ever to California, so I was very excited and not sure what to expect. Here are a few snapshots of some sites I got to see, places I went, and a little bit of some of the work I did.

the best shot I could get of the iconic LAX letters outside of the airport // I really enjoyed driving up and down Sunset Boulevard, so much lovely shopping and eating out that I wanted to do // there's basically an American Apparel on every corner (not really, but it seemed like it)

this was a giant chair sculpture outside of the Pacific Design Center // this is the Pacific Design Center, where my company's showroom is located and where I walked to work while I was there // I loved this Missoni Home display I saw in the PCD

these are the display areas that I worked on designing/putting together and was lucky enough to get to actually install them myself!

 I was basically obsessed with this French cafe, Le Pain Quotidien, located on Melrose Place. I had lunch here on the patio and enjoyed the view and the people watching.

 my coworker and her daughter were kind enough to take me on a mini tour of the city. we went around downtown and up to a park to get a better view of the skyline.

we went to Chinatown and had some of the best Chinese food I've ever had at Yang Chow restaurant // we also drove around the Staples Center and Nokia Theater area, and apparently I was about a day late for the Hunger Games premiere, which I was less than thrilled that I missed // we also walked down Hollywood Boulevard and I got a pic with these two *ahem* interesting people.

Even though it was a quick trip, I loved everything about LA (minus the traffic).  I can't wait until the next time I get to go back!

Cheers,
Ellie
