LA Theater District

The architecture in downtown LA is absolutely gorgeous! The Theater District is my favorite area of town because it is filled with tons of gems from the golden age of Hollywood.

These past couple of years, I’ve spent a considerable amount of time discovering some of the beautiful architecture left from that time, imagining what it was probably like in the early to mid 20th century. I can only imagine big Hollywood premiers or elegant soirées and plays being held in some of these stunning theaters.

If you are to venture down to the Theater District, some of my favorite buildings to check out are the Palace Theater, Orpheum Theater, Cameo Theater and Roxie Theater, which are located on Broadway. They are just as pretty inside as they are outside. I think the fact that they are a little run down gives them even more charm. I’m happy to see that a lot of them are still being used today for different reasons.

Do Everything, Regret Nothing

Because life is short, I’m always trying to make the most out of any situation or time I have in a one place or with people that I love. Since we have no idea what tomorrow will bring, I’m all about making the most of the present moment and enjoying every minute of it.

I have been crushing hard on Medium Watches for quite some time now. The reason why I love this Canadian brand so much is not only because they make amazing designs in Canada but also because they also allow you to customize and make your own unique watch.

Their latest design for women called, The Debut is the perfect combination of style and functionality. You can customize your strap and also etch the caseback of the watch with a life motto or an inspiring quote. Getting back to the theme of making the most of your time, I decided to etch the saying “Do Everything, Regret Nothing“.

I picked the classic gold and black combo with the woven mesh stainless steel strap. The watch is my daily go-to because it goes with just about anything. A little detail that I like on the watch is the “16” indicator has been highlighted to mark the year of the watch.

For the past three years, I have decided to stop holding back and say yes to opportunities that come my way, always keeping an open mind and also making the most of any situation that may arise.

This quote has been a huge motivator for me when I have doubted myself or questioned doing certain things. This quote is also my background on Facebook and has been at the forefront of my thoughts on a daily basis.

What motto would you engrave on your watch? #Whatsyourmedium
