Hopped off a plane at…

Eight days until we board a plane to Los Angeles and I am so excited! Why I love Los Angeles: The people. The hustle. The beach. And… well, the concerts, events and celebrities that live there. I’m a celebrity and pop culture junkie. I like to Keep Up with the Kardashians, Ellen, and I follow close […]
