Santa Monica Pier & Gen Korean BBQ | A Week in California

An evening stroll on the Santa Monica Pier… Following our day trip to the Getty Museum (which you can read about here,) we decided to head on down to Santa Monica! The main purpose of our trip was to stop by Third Street Promenade to do a spot of shopping (hello Madewell, Cotton On, and most importantly… Uniqlo!). I follow a ton of LA vloggers on Youtube, so it was really funny for me when I stepped into the little shopping plaza at the end of the street and felt like I had been there before!

On the second day of our trip, we headed to The Getty Museum. I remember seeing photos of the museum’s fantastic architectural design on tumblr and longed to visit… now I can finally cross it off my bucket list! The gallery itself houses many iconic works…

Bulgogi House, Honeymee, Round 1 | Sachie’s California Food Tour

Hello lovelies! Here is my last post from my California food tour series this year. We visited these two restaurants on our last day in LA. Our last day was a lazy one. We didn’t really have any plans – Megan was working an afternoon shift so it was up to Tako to keep Jord and I entertained. We ended up spending an hour wandering around a Daiso, lol. After Megan finished her shift, we went back to her place. Actually a bit of a funny story – Jord and I had arranged to meet Dyrus for Korean BBQ, but…
