Weekend Wrap Up: Malibu, Despicable Me & Twinkle Lights


This weekend I vowed to do only what I wanted. I was going to be selfish, and I was going to enjoy it very much. The past few weekends I’ve been running around here, there, everywhere you could possibly think of. So this weekend, all I wanted to do was stay in LA, go to the beach and be outside. So I did.

Saturday I did the Malibu waterfall hike with a friend. Let me tell you, it kind of turned into a rock climbing excursion (at least in my eyes) because we had to SCALE ROCKS. Who knew that even existed in Malibu? But I made it out alive. Oh and the waterfall? Not much of a waterfall, at least at this time of year. It kind of looked like someone poured a water bottle out and let it trickle down the cliff. Cool stuff let me tell you. After hiking we went to brunch at Kristy’s and then laid out at Zuma for almost 3 hours. It was lovely.

Sunday, my roommate and I walked over to City Walk and watched Despicable Me 2. I’m not usually a huge animated movie fan but for some reason I think those minions are the cutest thing to ever be brought to life. Kudos to their designer because I just can’t get enough of them. I got to eat Red Vines and giggle along with the rest of the 5 year olds in the theater for a solid two hours. Also, this happened. The only thing I’m sorry about is that I couldn’t take my life size cutout of Harry Styles home with me.


I spent the rest of the day running errands and listening to vinyl. Then I suddenly had the urge to make a change in the apartment. My roommate and I had previously talked about putting twinkle lights up and with my sudden revelation last week about creating a more creative space I thought, why not? So I did. This is how they turned out. I’m kind of in love with it. Because sometimes to make sense of anything at all, you have to hang twinkle lights.
