Melrose Avenue is my favorite place in LA

With a lot of fashion boutiques, fine dining restaurants, and nice cafes and bars, Melrose is just beautiful. I always check out stores like Maxfield, The Real Real, and Christian Louboutin. Sometimes I buy nothing but just appreciate beautiful decorations and designs there.

Peony! Why are you so beautiful

I bought them from Trader Joe's on Saturday. They were just small buds and looked ordinary. After just two days, all of them blossomed. They brighten my room and my day! So pretty and magical.

Is Broadway Palace a Good Place to Live

The answer is yes! I lived in Broadway Palace for around one year when I was doing my Master's degree at USC. Its location is very good. A lot of supermarkets like Whole Foods are within walking distance. There are also a lot of fashion brands and lovely restaurants and bars close by. About the apartment, two gyms and two swimming pools, a smaller lounge on the first floor and a massive lounge on the top where you can see the beautiful buildings in LA downtown. If you ask me anything that I dislike, I will say, choose an apartment with good lightings. I lived on the second floor, so I didn't get good natural light.

Love Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens

The Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens, known as The Huntington are one of my favourite places to visit in Los Angeles. The gardens are now open (galleries remain closed). I went there a few weeks ago. Even though I just got to see the gardens, it was a great experience. The botanical landscaped gardens, especially the "Japanese Garden", the "Desert Garden", and the "Chinese Garden" (Liu Fang Yuan) are the best. I have to say the gardens are very close to gardens I saw in those countries in person. When the Sun was about to set, I came across the beautiful grass and got those great pictures. If you plan to visit, remember to buy tickets first. All visitors, including members, must reserve tickets online in advance.

Flowers Make Life Better

I learned a bit of the art of flower arrangement when I was young. Ever since then, buying different types of flowers and creating my own style now and then became my hobby. When my mood is down or when the weather is bad, it can really brighten my life. I recommend you give it a try. If you are not good with matching colours, using fewer colours and choosing colours with similar tones is always the easiest way to start with. When you get better, you can learn how to use bolder combinations, like matching green with yellow and white or matching pink with margiela and light purple.
