One word to describe me: (Fashionably)
Rewind back a month and you'll come across my shameful procrastinator-self roaming around my house at 2pm feeling a wave of sheer boredom drown out any association with the foreign word "fun". As per tradition with every summer, it started off seemingly lackluster because of my much-too enthusiastic summer bucket list that led to my downfall of Netflix marathons. There might as well be an Intervention episode dedicated purely on how I addictively wrap-up an infinite number of seasons.
So now that summer is heart-wrenchingly tumbling to a close, I'm pretty much desperately wringing out all the energy I have left over in overeagerly sharpie-ing out my tattered bucket list. Curious to know the exclusive, hand-picked activities?
1. OC Fair
2. Bottega Louie's
3. Cabo San Lucas
4. Catalina Island
5. Santa Monica Pier
My latest adventure? The OC Fair.
After flight-like hours of emblematic LA traffic that led to cuss-inducing, lane-cutting drivers, I finally arrived in fair haven. An overload of senses is definitely a side effect of roaming around the radiantly lit booths emblazoned in color-saturated plush prizes. Call me Agnes from Despicable Me because after eyeing that derpy-looking unicorn, the gamer in me was activated. Luckily, I surprisingly nabbed my long-awaited prize but only after several attempts and a random surprise win that composed of everything I didn't want: a Salad-Finger-esque zombie (*cringe). Note to readers: Make sure to try the gigantic doughnut! Don't get me wrong, eating at a fair is a full-commitment--the Disneyland-akin prices, the unescapable BBQ smoke lingering rides away, the heart-attack inducing fried foods. But if you're going to rebelliously point a middle finger to your salad-eating "Beach bod" diet, the doughnut is definitely the way to go.
Continuing on this sugary note, my venture to Bottega Louie's was undeniably sweet. Call me the Queen B a.k.a. Blair Waldorf for this post, because a lush bubble bath while stuffing my face with macaroons from the East-Coast equivalent, Laduree, with bouquets of peonies sounds like a slice of royal paradise (disclaimer: these nonstop references to Gossip Girl are starting to become habitual). For all you visual learners out there, check out my instagram (@cremedelachic) to see my bittersweet love affair with macaroons.
