English Muse: Week in Review

I think Los Angeles is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, which explains why I hated being stuck at my desk in the office...I always wanted to be out, meeting people and exploring. Now with my freedom and iPhone camera, I'm like a tourist of life.

So here's my little photo review of last week:
Driving along Wilshire Blvd. through MacArthur Park...



...the next day over to Hollywood and then to West Hollywood, for a meeting with the lovely Willow Bay...



...In Beverly Hills for lunch with Colin Firth. Wait, I just want to say that again: Lunch with Colin Firth!!! yipeee!!..(sorry)...regaining my composure...



...Over to Century City, to the Avenue of the Stars...



...Then back in the San Gabriel Valley (stopping in San Marino for a cupcake...)



...Of course I believe cupcakes are the perfect food...



...One of my former bosses at the paper used to tell me: There's no news in the newsroom. It's out there in the city...


Where you can feel the sun on your face...

(PS: I'm doing a profile of Colin for the LA Times. It's set to run in a couple weeks.)

Why, hello, you gorgeous cupcakes. I love the presentation. So perfect.

And Colin Firth is pretty cool too. It's probably a good thing that you didn't take him to the cupcake place. I would probably have a hard time concentrating on conversation with Colin if these beautiful cupcakes were around...

Agreed...although Colin Firth is a tastier dessert than a cupcake....

Lucky girl. California must be a pretty nice place to live. Not like the desert climate of some parts of Australia (and I'm not only talking about the obvious ones.)

I live in the Los Angeles area too and aside from the usual tourist spots - there are so many more awesome and obscure places to see. Lovely photos - esp. the cupcakes..:) And lunch with Colin Firth isn't too bad either! Have a great day!

Agreed on the cupcakes and I'm in LOVE with their individual bell jar/cake platters. Too beautiful. I wish I had a whole collection of them just to use as jewelry holders/displays!

Those cupcakes are looking really delicious. But still, if I had to choose between those and Colin Firth, well, I know what the choice would be! :-) Sounds like a lovely week. And beautiful pictures you took, ofcourse!
