LA LIFE

My Greatest Love Affair

Today is a monumental day. For it marks 5 months from the most devastating breakup of my life.

No, not from a dude! {…They’re all canceled.}

From my one true love… Los Angeles.

The heavily polluted smog = my Love Potion Number 9. I miss being woken up at 6 AM to the glorious sound of jack-hammering construction {or my next door neighbor jack-hammering his boyfriend}. I miss the tinge of fear that traveled down my spine each time I realized I hadn’t locked my car door & a schitzo 6’5 male wearing a fuchsia wig,

Life in LA: What I Learned & Why I Left

 

Wow this is bittersweet. And surreal. And every other emotion all wrapped up and crammed into my aching heart. It’s Memorial Day, and this is the last morning that I will spend in my perfect little West Hollywood apartment. As I try to find the words to say, all my amazing memories of the last 9 months are replaying in my mind. It… Was… Incredible. Moving to LA is something that I dreamed of doing my entire life, and although I’m ready to go home now, this past year was so necessary. Everything has changed. I have evolved in so many unexpected ways,

BUMBLE + 2018 DATING TIPS!

A Modern Day Love Story: We both swiped right & lived happily ever after… {Until he liked too many slutty photos on Instagram} The End!

Okay, so it’s 2018 & all of us singles are buzzin’… and not just off tequila sodas. In my humble opinion, Bumble is where all of the hot eligible bachelors are, and where you will find the most high quality prospects in this day and age. The caveat? You HAVE to play the game, and you have to play it well. Think about it, we can all agree that dudes these days already have the attention span of a Golden Retriever puppy,

24 HOURS IN MY WILD LA LIFE

10 AM: Taking my first sip of the most delightful sugar-free vanilla coconut milk latte and breathing in the fresh sea air with my toes in the sand in Newport Beach. Despite singlehandedly drinking an entire bottle of Pinot G last night, I’m feeling surprisingly good, inspired, and ready to conquer the day! As my friend and I walked down to where the waves kiss the sand in hopes of getting the perfect coffee + ocean boomerang, something caught our eye over to the right. Two giant men in cargo shorts and white tee shirts were full-on wrestling in the water.

LALALAND

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a dream in my 🖤. To move to LA. And as we all know, you can never quite explain matters of the heart. No one but YOU quite understands that still small voice that says “What if you try?” You can ignore it, you can attempt to convince yourself that your dream is silly, that it’s too late, that the comfortable life you’ve built for yourself is enough… but as the story goes, that question of “What if?” will never go away. 6 short months ago, I packed my Mini Coop to the brim &

Did I Have a Thing With Arie?!?!

I’m Erika & I am a Bachelor SuperFan. Allow me to clarify- I am a fan of the SHOW, not the FabFitFun hawking social media monsters that 75% of the contestants become after the show. I love the raw, vulnerable, seventeenth glass of wine induced “ugly-crying” versions of these people who are fresh out of their humble hometowns & still totally untainted by Hollywood. Think about it: 25 girls are completely removed from society with absolutely nothing to do but drink heavily and obsess over the same guy. No phones, no internet, no TV, no music, no books… just a suitcase full of bikinis &
