Los Angeles: Photo Diary

@christianconfidential  It’s been a week since I’ve been back from LA and oh man do I miss it! I don’t think that you guys get how big of a deal this trip really was for me. I’ve been wanting to visit this magical land for years and out of fear I’ve always found a reason to not make it. I was scared that I was going to fall in love with its charm and have to try and figure out a way to stay there! Well, I did indeed love it and I would definitely not mind calling LA home in the future but I’m not as depressed as I thought I would be now that I’m back in Toronto.

The thing that I love about LA is that it made me feel like I was not alone. Growing up in a more conservative area where my dreams weren’t the same as everyone else’s, I always felt like I didn’t belong, like I was really different. That environment made me continuously question if my dreams were crazy and unrealistic. In LA, everybody is a creative, so if I’m crazy then everybody else here is crazy too!

@christianconfidential@christianconfidentialI spent about a week in West Hollywood and really got a chance to take in my surroundings. I was very lucky to have a few friends that are living out there (Melinda, Mishael, Keshia & Lesli) at the moment to show me around and help me discover the real LA. From Runyon Canyon hikes, to the best workout classes in the city, to late night eats, movie premieres and time on set of The Young and the Restless – every day was filled with new adventures!

When I think about the people that are in my life and the experiences that I have under my belt, I truly realize how blessed I am. Life isn’t always easy and it’s really not supposed to be but trips like this past one, makes it all worth while. This experience really taught me to appreciate the things that I have in my life and to never stop believing in my dreams!

As always, I snapped a few photos along the way for you guys – so check them out below!

Until next time,

Christian

Miami | Travel With ChristianMiami | Travel With ChristianThere’s nothing that I love more than travelling, except maybe travelling with close friends! This year has definitely been one for the books. It’s the year that I’ve taken the most risks, rediscovered myself as a single person, and felt the most pressure to make things happen for me professionally! That being said, at the end of last month it was time to put away my laptop and unwind for a few days. My friends, Shayna and Vanessa who have both been working uber hard thought that it would be dope to go on a mini getaway and celebrate life, explore another city and catch some sun. Miami | Travel With ChristianChosen Destination: Miami Stay: Thompson Miami Beach  Our Go-to’s: Soho House, Lincoln Road, Bodega South Beach  Breakfast: La Provence Dinner: Cecconi’s Miami Nightlife: LIV on Sunday (obviously)!

The thing that I love about Miami is that it’s like those ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ books that you used to read when you were a kid. You can do ‘the most’ or as ‘little’ as you’d like and still have a great time. We opted for something in between the two extremes and legit, never had a dull moment! If you’re looking for a quick getaway, I’d move Miami up to the top of your list.
