ABOUT TOWN | LA MOVIE THEATERS

best movie dates in LA | designlovefest

los angeles is filled with movie buffs and we boast a long list of historic movie theaters that are perfect for catching a flick. we also have a bunch of cool venues that open up during the summer for outdoor screenings as well (more on that below!). here is a list of some of our favorite theaters in town! note: we haven’t listed any of those theaters where you sit in recliners and have food brought to you because truthfully, i don’t think it’s worth the much higher ticket price.

OUTDOOR MOVIES: ’tis the season for spending copious amounts of time outside in the sun and spending a warm evening watching a movie on a blanket with snacks and a drink is high on our summer to-do list.

Hollywood Forever Cemetery:  this place is a classic for outdoor movies, you can bring in your own food and drinks. buy tickets way in advance, they sell out and i recommend splurging for the VIP parking pass and splitting it between everyone in your car because then you don’t have to stand at the gates and wait, you drive on through and get a good spot for viewing.

 

Eat, See, Hear: They hosting screenings all across the city, it’s a mix of live music, film and food trucks!

NEOPRENE, YAY OR NAY?

20

traditionally the material of wetsuits, neoprene is popping up more and more in the fashion world. it’s a synthetic rubber that comes in a variety of colors and shapes and is being used from everything from accent details to full on gowns. the coolest part, in our opinions, is the static shape that it holds due to its weight and consistency. designers can create volume, clean lines, and exaggerated silhouettes that will stay exactly as they create it to be which makes for a very dramatic statement. have you ever worn neoprene fashion, would you try it? see these and get inspired!

TOKYO TRAVEL / PART 1

TOKYO! what a trip. so much to see. so much to explore. overwhelming, but amazing. exactly why i wanted to go and try to find a bunch of spots to share with you. because you gottttta go. let’s dive in..

tokyo travel guide 1 | designlovefest

we took a 4 hour flight from hong kong to tokyo and arrived into the narita airport. the airport is pretty far from everything (about 1.5 hours) so we decided to take the friendly limo company bus to the sheraton hotel and then a 10 minute cab to our hotel. it was about $26 a person as opposed to an expensive cab ride ($150-200) but it’s up to you, really. i actually liked the bus ride, it was nice, easy to book as you exit customs, and runs every 30 mins or something fast like that.

i’m going to try to break down what we did by neighborhood because there is a LOT to see in tokyo, and everything is pretty spread out. my suggestion is to use google maps on your phone and computer to plan the trip. type in a place you want to go and hit the little “saved” star so you get a bunch of stars on your map and you know how to plan your day. you don’t want to be going all over the city if you can stick in one neighborhood in the daytime and another in the evening.

tip: we rented little wifi devices from tep wireless that gave us a signal throughout the whole trip. verizon didn’t have a good data plan for the places we were visiting. we got two for four people so the signal would be strong. honestly worked perfectly in hong kong, and almost perfectly in tokyo. would also highly suggest a mophie for keeping that phone charged because maps takes up a loooot of battery.

MEGURO

natalie and i got in late and went straight to sleep but then met up with jen and jesse in the morning. it’s always fun to meet up with someone you know, somewhere new. it’s so exciting. the hotel we stayed in was the claska hotel through mr and mrs smith. it was definitely one of the most unique hotel experiences i’ve had. there is only 18 rooms, and we were able to move around and see a bunch of them. some are very modern and minimalist and some are very wacky and themed (stuffed animal theme or ship theme! ha) the place kinda felt like an ace hotel, but in japan. i liked having my morning coffee in the lobby and the store on the 2nd floor is absolutely stunning (a must.) as far as location, i felt it was sort of out of the way from things we wanted to see and more chill and residential, but a great hotel regardless. and we did find a lot of cool stuff in the meguro neighboorhood that were worth checking out. there’s also a lot of vintage shopping here!

AMAZEBOWLS!

amazebowls | designlovefest

we’re always looking to break up our office lunch routine so when the folks over at amazebowls asked if we wanted them to stop by and serve up some acai bowls we quickly said yes! and when they served them to us in coconuts they officially won the the game for most beautiful acai bowls ever.

they set out a bar of beautiful toppings for us to pick from including chai seeds, edible flowers, fresh fruit, homemade granola, hemp seeds and coconut flakes. they also make their own nut butter which was seriously good.

if you’re wanting to serve something in coconuts they gave us the tip to break them in half with a hammer and then they freeze them until their ready to serve! and edible flowers are always a good idea…
