The LA Diaries- Embracing The Tourist In You

The Los Angeles Diaries- Embracing The Tourist In You
I always hear such negative connotations associated with being a tourist. 'Oh the place has been ruined by the tourists' or even, 'they're not cool enough to seek out the rare gems this city has to offer. Think outside of the box!'. Well why would you when you're in a place like LA? You want to see what restaurant it was where Brad Pitt dressed up as a chicken mascot before making it big. Or what bank Charlize Theron got in to a heated exchange in and was spotted by a talent agent. Ahh, humble beginnings. But the point is when you're in a place such as Los Angeles, it seems ludicrous that you wouldn't want to indulge in the cult beginnings and present day revival that the city is so famed for.

Yes, I'm A Yo-Yo Dieter. And Yes, This Is My Fate

food blogger yo-yo dieter
I was about eight years old when I first noticed by 'chubby' stomach. We were going to a wedding and my mum- in all of her desperate attempts to make us stand out at the upcoming family vs family bitchfest- seemed frazzled that nothing was fitting me. It was then when I attended my weekend gymnastics class that I finally understood why other girls would gather in groups to laugh and point at me. It also dawned at me as to why I wasn't as fast as them, as flexible, as agile and as elegant in my routines as them. I was too big- 'One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.- Virginia Woolf
