santa monica // 24 hrs

about a month ago me and tori did something a little wild. we woke up at 5am and drove to santa monica, california for a less than 24 hr trip.

now why did we do that to ourselves? a job fair. ASU film spark was hosting an event in santa monica for current and alumni students to interact with industry professionals and to hear about the jobs and internships they were offering. to be totally honest if it wasn’t for tori i wouldn’t have even known this existed!

after tori drove us there (like the champ she is) we walked from our motel to third street! I went to uniqlo and got a shirt but didn’t find anything else at any of the stores I normally frequent when i’m in santa monica!

no, this isn’t where we stayed but this hotel was just too cute!

we wandered down to the beach and saw a really cool street show! and of course went on the pier. KAW_7937KAW_7944KAW_7959KAW_7973


while I was taking pictures of tori this guy said “do you wanna take my pictures??” and probably to his surprise I said yes and he posed. turns out he and his wife were from brighton!! it really is a small world after all.

that night we had the meal of our dreams. and really, the highlight of this trip : golden mean café. this my friends, was one of the best gluten free/vegan place I have ever experienced! the menu was amazing so if you have any food sensitivities, check this place out!

that night we did some face masks and woke up to go to our job fair!

we prepped hard for this job fair (business cards, resume re-builds etc.) and I am going to do a full post all about my tips on going to a job fair! as you can tell, we both dressed different from each other but I think we both fit in well.

after the job fair we got lunch at lemonade (one of the most LA places possible, honestly)

then we scooted to erin mckenna bakery where tori insisted we go because it was GF and vegan! and let me tell ya, It was worth It. on our way there we passed two movie sets and ran into matt bomer. the whole street was super cute and super LA. I got ice cream at salt and straw which was awesome!

and after all the we drove home in the WORST traffic I have ever been in, but Tori handled it like an absolute champ!
