When I first moved to Los Angeles a year ago, I blindly moved into a two-bedroom home in Silver Lake.

When I signed the lease, I had no idea where Silver Lake was, what the area was known for, but intuition threw me there- and I fell in love. Silver Lake is a one of the hippest areas in Los Angeles, filled with hipster coffee shops, killer vintage boutiques, houses on hills with million-dollar views of the city, vegan restaurants, and some of the best dressed residents ever, all of whom look like rockstars. It’s an oasis for young adults. I re-visit probably every other day, simply because it is energetically such an incredible place to be and get inspired- and I’ve partnered with Lucky Brand to give you guys the inside scoop on Silver Lake.
I threw on my new Lucky Brand overalls, a white blouse + and my favorite black hat and grabbed my girl Kristina for a long walk along the Sunset Junction.

Must visit Restaurant in Silver Lake: Sage for amazing vegan food, Sqirl for breakfast, Guisados for Mexican, Moon Juice for blue juice and stellar tonics.
Must visit shops: Furst Time Around for re-done vintage pieces & generally all stores on Sunset are incredible.
Must visit sight-seeing: The Bates Motel (palm trees painted white), Echo Park for a picnic or paddle boating, Café Stella for dinner and people watching, Silver Lake stairs.

Thank you to Lucky Brand for partnering with me on this post.

Perhaps this is one of the most exciting posts I will ever write.

Why? Because, my friends, one of my dreams has come true.

I have vision glasses now- that I actually need.
I’ve been obsessed with fake glasses since something like 2006, because my friends and I genuinely believed it was a cool accessory in grade school. Plus, you already know I’m in love with sunglasses and how they can make an outfit complete, because they are in essence an accessory to the face. When I travelled to South Korea last year, I bought a couple fake glasses, and ever since, have been bombarded with questions from you guys about where I got them.

Well fast forward to 2016, I’ve actually been having issues with my eyesight recently. Everything, especially from a distance, is uncomfortably blurry. Mind you, it’s not the point that it interferes with my everyday life, but it is a discomfort (that until I got my vision checked, I didn’t realize it’s significance).

I decided to get the new Clarifye eye exam at LensCrafters in Beverly Hills a couple of weeks ago. I experienced a incredibly cool, non-invasive technologically advanced exam. Dr. Meredith Barber told me I was actually far sighted, which would explain all my migraines and constant straining to see clearer.

Now, I never take these glasses off (they’re the Ray-Ban aviators with -0.5 optical lenses they custom made for me in store, within a matter of hours). It blows my mind how absolutely crisp everything is! You don’t really understand what you’re not seeing- until you put on glasses and suddenly you realize how horrible your vision can be without them.

So if you were one of those who asked me where I got my glasses, I highly recommend you check out LensCrafters and get a Clarifeye exam. Go to www.LensCrafters.com/Clarifye to find the nearest Clarifye.
