Welcome to the LA files

Los Angeles. 
Fast cars, palm trees, Sunset Blvd, fish tacos, smoke, IMAGE. 
It’s a city that stretches from breezy coast, up secluded hills, and down colossal valleys. A city as diverse geographically as it is in population. With the allure of Hollywood life, consistent creative stimulation, and perfect weather every month except for June people from all across the globe migrate to this city for a taste of this exclusive concoction. 

Los Angeles is a beautiful controversy, it is fast paced yet also extremely laid back. Live music, expensive cars, colorful graffiti, sandy toes, neon lights, celebrity faces, and mini skirts fill the streets, and creativity oozes out into the air. 

I was born in this city but left at a young age, LA has always been a part of who I am. But now that I am back, living in this chaotic city I can now a part of LA. Now that I am finally 21, a whole new door has opened up and there is even more for me to discover.

Jack Kerouac once said “LA is the loneliest and most brutal of American cities; LA is a jungle” and I completely agree. With a city that stretches out into 72 suburbs, and where everyone uses a car instead of walking down the street it is easy to feel alone and disconnected. So join me and take a peek into the LA file, and feel connected in this overwhelming place.

Welcome to a carnival city. Enjoy the ride. 

A bientôt!

bisou bisou, Catherine
