Maybe the insanity of getting tickets sparked our competitive spirit or maybe we just REALLY love ice-cream, but we have to admit the second we saw pictures of the pink walls, gummy bears & sprinkle-filled pool we added going to the Museum of Ice Cream to our summer to-do list- & bought tickets what felt like years ago.

We’re already huge fans of activated charcoal- ever tried it in ice cream?

It’s okay if your pictures aren’t 100% awesome- have fun instead!

Lots & lots of sprinkles all around the Arts District.

Almost full on Salt & Straw ice cream, mochi, gummy bears, activated charcoal cones, & ice-cream sandwiches, we decided to balance it out with some simple street tacos.

Headed to the Westlake /MacArthur Park neighborhood to mix it up.

 We love MacArthur Park – to us, it’s one of the most beautiful city parks & it always reminds us of our travels in Latin America.

It’s chaotic, filled to the brim with people & a gorgeous outline to our Los Angeles summer sunsets.

Did you know that Levitt Pavilion hosts free summer concerts in the park?

Having not been to one in awhile, we found ourselves listening to live music, making a recycled art mask & learning more about First 5 L.A.– a community driven non-profit focused on supporting families with young kids.

Now that all of the street vendors are back, we checked out the tables & ground coverings near the Metro stop- fascinated by what they were selling, shoes, toys, random stuff really & a lot of weight loss pills.

Our four hour adventure was almost over, so we checked in with our seven year to get her perspective on the day.

“The sprinkle pool was awesome” (& yep we still had sprinkles in our toes to prove it) & why don’t we (meaning Los Angeles) build houses for all of the homeless people? That’s what I’m going to do as President”.

Good question & Amen, sista!


we remind Angelenos of what “living locally” has to offer. finds local companies making high quality, eco-friendly goods right here in Southern California.

Los Angeles has so much going on & is alive with eclectic neighborhoods, places to see & things to do – so while we’re at it – we keep you in the know about cool things going on in your own ‘hood & the cool people making it all happen.

feel like wandering with us?

cool… ’cause that’s what we do here.
