Palos Verdes is another underrated neighborhood where I keep coming back. Unlike Malibu, the oceanside here is untouched and less commercial.
If you ever go to Terranea Resort. I highly recommend brunching at the restaurant named Mar’sel, which is right by the ocean! The food is surprisingly good. See this photo for yourself, definitely one of the best brunches I ever had.
Remember to stop by Wayfarers Chapel (photo 8 to 14), well known as “the glass church”, located on cliffs above the Pacific Ocean, hidden in towering redwood trees. There was a wedding going on so I didn’t take pictures of the interior. But it really is more about the surroundings you see and feel when you are in it. Their list for wedding reservations is as long as the coastline.
Onto the outfit, it’s pretty whatever, I just put this sweater on top of a PJ kind of romper. Honestly, the sweater is so poorly made that I had to tuck the hem into a belt underneath it. But my camera did like its color.
Chances are you’ve seen Greystone Mansion, too many times, in movies. It has appeared in X-men, Spiderman, Air Force One, just to name a few. What you probably not know is that this place is actually free for everyone to see. You can’t get into the building but you are free to go around it and play in the garden. There wasn’t even a security or any kind of staff when I went there on a random day. So my friend Bella and I felt pretty free to move things around (trash cans, for instance) in order to take better photos. The upside of ridiculous traffic and the lack of public transportation in LA is that a beautiful place like this that is supposed to be tourisy never gets crowded. I call them famous secret spots. My photos are not doing justice to this ever elegant home in Hollywood, it was one of those very very rare cloudy day in California.
Those who follow my Instagram probably know I’ve been in Beijing for post-production of a show I started working on since June last year. I am finally done! With the help of a couple friends, I got to explore the city for a few days and lucky enough to have found a couple amazing, incredible, breathtaking secret spots that I swear even locals don’t know about, got a lot of msg from local friends asking where I went. With that said, stay tuned and you’ll find out!
