LA + San Diego Photo Diary


After Las Vegas, I spent another week in Los Angeles to see my favorite band, Years & Years. I feel like I say that on here all the time, but I'm always traveling around to see them because I'm like that. Anyway, I could go on about how LA is my favorite place ever but I'm pretty sure I talk about that all the time as well, so I'll sum it up by saying this trip consisted of the same things that all of my trips there consist of - Urth Caffe, In-N-Out, concerts, and going out. I talked more about LA in this post so check that out if you're interested.

One thing we did that was out of the ordinary was spend a night in San Diego. I've been to San Diego quite a few times, but it's usually just for a few hours at a time. There were two shows in a row we wanted to catch, so we decided to spend the night at the W, which is a lovely place to stay if you ever find yourself in San Diego. I absolutely love staying at hotels, there's something so comforting about it and you can't beat a nice hotel bed. We went to a cute outdoor concert, had some drinks, ate green tea ice cream, and saw that band I always talk about. I'd love to spend even more time in San Diego one day because it's beautiful there and I still feel like I've barely seen any of it.

Some Instagram photos from the trip:

2. Cute lights at the outdoor concert
3. In-N-Out of course
4. Olly from Y&Y and I after the LA show

P.S. I leave for London in two weeks! If you have any suggestions about what I should do there, leave it in the comments!

  9. I had a family member just come back from a San Diego trip and they loved it, it's definitely a place I'd like to hear a little more about. One day I'll have to try In-N-Out too and see what all the hype is about!

  16. I think it's wonderful that you're travelling around to see Y&Y! I'd do that too if my idol is actually touring and I live where tours happen. (Staring daggers at Adele at this point.) Stone looks amazing on you, and gosh, I cannot get enough of green tea ice cream.

    Have a wonderful week, Danielle!

  59. I love how much you travel, it's so dope. Also love how you go see shows back to back, that's ridiculously cool. I'm not a huge San Diego person, I remember when I visited I just thought everyone was way too laid back for me, haha. I guess that's the vibe you get when you're near a beach! Enjoy your London travels!
