I have a confession to make: I am not a big fan of shopping in general, but I love collecting (and wearing) vintage clothing. Where I find the usual mall experience draining, I find the search for vintage clothing invigorating, a thrilling adventure of never knowing what I’m going to find when, where and for how much.
So, I could tell you all about how the roots of burlesque derive from literary, dramatic or musical work that caricatures its serious counterparts.

When in Los Angeles, there’s nothing quite like soaking up the sun. And while there are any number of beaches to visit where one can do just that, there’s nothing quite like the seclusion and decadence of chilling at a rooftop pool as you absorb your vitamin D. Some of the best rooftop pools in L.A. […]
For over 90 years, Pomona, California has been the home of the LA County Fair. Running from September 4-27, the LA County Fair is one of the oldest and largest of its kind in the US, attracting over 1 million people annually.

Iconic buildings play important roles in some of Hollywood’s most memorable movies. Imagine King Kong without the Empire State Building, Rocky without the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s steps, or The Shining without the Timberline Lodge. While slightly less dramatic, these three California hotels are great places to stay and just so happen to bring some […]
Sure, L.A. may not get as much attention as a culinary hub as cities such as New York City, Chicago or San Francisco — but that’s what makes it such a killer, under-the-radar spot for culinary junkies. So if you’re considering taking a trip based around food destinations — or you simply need some good eats […]
