Wearing:// Top: ASTR (old), Pants: Aritzia, Bag: Gucci

      Naturally,  I found myself jet-setting my first weekend back at school for summer classes and working. On Thursday of last week, I was relaxing before class and planning for a weekend of work and pretty much doing nothing. But at 12pm when I received a text from my friend Morgan's mom (yes, her mom) to come to Seattle for the weekend, my lackluster plans quickly changed. I proceeded to book my last minute flight and get to packing for the jam-packed weekend ahead of me. The second I arrived in Seattle, Morgan and I were zipping across the city, through downtown and suburbia. I think I consumed enough that weekend to survive on for a month-- my favorite food stop was by far the icecream/cookie duo at Hello Robbin. When we weren't eating deliciousness, we were sight seeing as much as we possibly could in our 48 hours together. We hit all of the must see spots, from Pike Place to Kerry Park to the famous but disgusting gum wall. I had such a blast seeing Seattle with my very own Seattlite best friend and can't wait to go back. The combination of the mountains, the water, and the city was unlike anything else. 

     Now, I find myself back in La La Land slaving over a paper and prepping for a debate (yes, I'm being dramatic). To describe my boredom on this Memorial Day, I almost wish I had had class instead of having the day off. When you have to hail an Uber to seek out caffeine, you know you're in a tough situation. After this week, it'll be mostly smooth sailing until the end of the first session of summer classes. I have training up north in a couple of weeks for my job, and hopefully I'll be able to share that experience with you all! Until then, it's a whole lot of reading and soaking up the California sunshine. xoxo Isabelle 


The Voice, 19th Birthday, The Museum of Ice Cream, & The Weeknd

      Hi everyone! The past few weeks (or month, really) of school have been quite the whirlwind. Aside from finishing up classes and tackling the most stressful finals week, I did quite a bit of adventuring in order to destress a bit. In classic LA fashion, my friends Delaney, Laura, and I snagged tickets to see The Voice live! We were in the pit area of the filming and talked to Alicia Keys and saw all of the judges-- it was safe to say I was starstruck. The entire semester, I only missed one class and it was for this once in a lifetime opportunity to live out my The Voice super fan dream. The following week, my friends and I attended the grand-opening of The Museum of Ice-Cream where we indulged in black cookie dough "ice-cream", swam in a pool of sprinkles, and swung on a banana swing. I left more than full but was naturally able to consume some more ice-cream from Salt & Straw within an hour. #nice The next weekend, I celebrated my 19th birthday a little early (aka before the finals madness) with a brunch with my closest friends at USC. We went to Ivory on Sunset, which was situated on a beautiful rooftop with a pool, aesthetically pleasing decor, and some yummy food to match. The next on my list of things to catch you all up on is The Weeknd concert! My friend Dani and I saw The Weeknd live at The Forum in Inglewood-- our seats were pretty good alone, but The Weeknd was primarily on the walkway so our seats were essentially front row. It's safe to say that I can't listen to The Weeknd anymore because nothing beats seeing him live and up close. 

     I think I covered just about everything new and exciting that I've done recently. Otherwise, I've been holed up in the library approaching delirium while studying for finals. To my dismay, I start summer classes next week and will be working all summer out in LA. Here's to a summer of learning about foreign policy, dance as an art form, and hitting the grind! xx Isabelle
