An Introvert Adventure In L.A.

1 girl -1 day-1 mission

I have had a an extra credit that was burning a hole in me because it would involve me driving to L.A. to the La Brea Tar Pits. I don't like going there because it takes up to 2 hours to get there sometimes when it should really take 30 mins. Since I put off my project till the last minute I had to go today on Mother's Day ehhh sorry Bar. I got there in an hour since it's Sunday and a bit less traffic than usual. Since I had so much fun I decided to share pictures from today's adventure. I felt a little strange being alone, everyone was with their Mom's, Daughter's and families. So enjoy the pics. and ahh wasn't this Sunday a good one.

1st stop: Los Angeles County Museum Of Art
5905 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles CA 90036

I wasn't able to go inside the exhibits at this Museum but made sure to take interesting pictures of the landscape and architectural features.

2nd stop: La Brea Tarpits
5801 Wilshire BlvdLos Angeles, CA 90036

The La Brea Tarpits is the whole reason why I came down here in the first place. I had an extra credit project for Geology. There is a nice garden and atrium here and many people were picnicking.

An actual site still used

3rd stop: Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills California 90210
Before I head back home I stopped by Beverly Hills for an Hour to relax and take a stroll down Rodeo Dr. I felt a little like Cher on Clueless. I got myself a Coffee and a few dresses at the Gap and did some window shopping at POttery Barn, Crate & Barrel, Luis Vuiton, MISSONI and many more.

4th stop: GAP
Beverly Hills
I really liked this GAP it had a huge selection and lost of sale items. I decided to buy this dress below in Coral & truffle, perfect for all my upcoming Summery events.
