Flying to LA is a different experience all together.
Chilling on board with Miss Mimi? Heidi Klum, Taylor Swift and the Jonas Brothers, of course. The others I didn't recognize, as I proudly DO NOT OWN A TV. I don't need one. I blog when I get bored.. ;)
Everyone you meet is a music producer/ actor/ model/ singer/ songwriter/ manager/ titty wonder.
I was so worried about how little brunette moderately chested Miss Mimi would fit into the Cali Beachblond laidback Lifestyle that I intensely googled LA Fashion Blogs, before the trip.
(Here are two amazing ones: Refinery29 and Song of Style)
To prepare myself.
But 'ts eeeeeasyyyyyyy. Don't sweat the small stuff.
Everyone wears a beanie hat, a used looking T shirt, and black RayBan Wayfarers.
Basically it is the slouchy Parisian Look worn with a grin and lots of blindingly white teeth.
And everyone wants to be your friend.
That starts already on the plane. After a little chat about my 'occupation', the model turned actor in the seat next to me curiously eyes me up and down slowly saying
'A. DAWWWG. BLAWWWG. I guess that's a very European thing to do.. And you seriously don't own a TV?!? You must be THE most unusual person I've ever met. And I've met quite a few.'
Yes bro, I would have guessed. You mix red wine with gin and tonic at 10 am. I haven't seen that one, either... :)
Even the Jet lag is not a problem.
I just get up a little earlier than usual, and go to bed a little earlier than usual, et voilà. Maybe I have been living on LA time all my life.
Flying back home from Lalaland is another special experience, too. Feels like rudely waking up from a beautiful dream you had, on a rainy grey November morning and its Monday and the first class is maths.
I guess my trip to the City of Angels is best summed up as a dream that lasted a few days. And then I woke up.
My rose colored RayBan's I threw into the Pacific Ocean, before I left. I don't need them anymore.

So yes, I was in LA. And no, I didn't get to do any of the things I wanted to do.
So now I'm sorry, I can't write you the article I would have wanted to write.
But I can do the following:
Share with you the LOVELY LIST that I had prepared for my trip and that I didn't get the chance to do, so you can go and have ALL THE FUN...
Now you might wonder , what I did do? Well, I spent a lot of time in airports. and I wrote this article. And I prepared a little goodie for you:
