Angela and I decided to check out BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood to see what all the fuss is about and I definitely understand it now! It's a high end contemporary steakhouse but it's far from stuck up. The waiters joke around which is something I value and the vibe is generally relaxed. The sizes of the dishes are quite big, but since everything was so tasty we managed to work us through all three courses, haha. The food and service is so good that a lunch at BOA really is a true pleasure, and you won't be leaving this place hungry or dissatisfied!

Since the weather wasn't beach-friendly today we decided to explore "coolest block of America", Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice. The street is full of creative, individualistic and alternative shops, cafés and restaurants. And of course graffitis, in true Venice spirit. If you love unique clothes, sunglasses and home decor - this is a place for you!

My oldest bff Angela is here in LA visiting to celebrate my birthday and hang! On the first day of her visit I got the best birthday present you can ask for: Malibu Wine Hike. It's organized by Malibu Wines and the hikes are guided, our guide was the son of the owner of the vineyard. He was super nice and knew everything about the private estate. His cute dog Bates tagged along our hike (unfortunately I don't have a picture of him, just videos) and was happily running after us. It was wonderful to spend some time in the nature and just have time off from the busy city life. The best part of it was meeting all the animals, especially Stanley the giraffe. Just look at him! He's such a photogenic, cute and kind animal. I felt so peaceful when I got to meet him, I didn't want to leave! He let me pet him and hug him, so some of the girls that hiked with us called me a "giraffe whisperer", haha. 
After the hike (that took about 2h) we shuttled over to the cozy Malibu Wines Tasting Room where we sipped on five different wines before going back to my apartment.

Took some snaps of The Shelters and Dear Boy when they played at Troubadour a few weeks ago. And let me tell you; if you have a chance to see The Shelters play live - DO IT!

First of all; I LOVE THIS PLACE! It's very laid back, lots of open space and you can feel how it's all about good vibes. The staff is kind, service minded and the whole idea behind Café Gratitude is so positive that it makes me smile just thinking about it.
The menu is amazing, not just because it's delicious - and 100% organic and all vegan - but also because every dish is named after positive affirmations. You start by saying "I am..." and end the sentence by saying one or more of the positive affirmations from the menu. For example, we got to say "I am smokin' and elated." when we ordered chili bowl and enchiladas.
They also have something that is called "question of the day". Our waitress asked us "What can you do to contribute today?" and left us so we could talk about it while we were waiting for our food.
GOOD VIBES!

Both me and Alexandra though that Smoking' (chili bowl) and Irresistible (coconut cream pie) was delicious, and this is huge coming from Alexandra that is a huge meat- and sweets lover, haha. Elated (enchiladas) were tasty as well, but Smoking' stole my heart today.

För någon vecka sedan fotade jag Death From Above och Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Jag hade inte sett någon av de två innan så jag hade inga direkta förväntningar på spelningarna. DFA var coola, band som består bara av en gitarrist och trummis (som även är the lead singer) MEN det är BRMC som var bäst den kvällen. De utstrålade coola vibes och en av sångarna/gitarristerna chillade till och med omkring med en cigg mellan gitarrsträngen, haha.


Snapped some shots of Death From Above and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club a week or two ago. DFA were quite cool, mostly because it's sick how the drummer is actually the lead singer. Like, how do you even do that? When does he breathe?
BUT BRMC was definitely the coolest band that night. The music was great and I loved the songs, but the cool vibe was created by one of the members. Just check out the picture with one of the guitarists/singers chilling around with a cigarette attached to his guitar. How cool?

I've been super busy trying to balance my studies and social life (because I'm one of those people that NEED to hang out with people to maintain some kind of sanity). I will try to write more about things that I've done but until then feel free to follow me on snapchat: gosiag2.

@chessiemabelle tagged me to answer these 11 questions, so let's do it!

1. What do you like the most about Autumn and why?
My favourite part must be the weather! It's not too cold and not too hot, just perfect for my leather jackets, fluffy faux furs and boots. Also I just LOVE Halloween and I find the yellow, red, brown and green colours kind of romantic...

2. Do you have any kind of phobia?
Yes, I'm terrified of blood and I'm scared to death just thinking about some of the incurable diseases.

3. If you could travel to a country for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
Like... move there? Or just be able to travel there whenever I want to?
If it's about moving I don't know. Maybe I would stay in States or maybe I would move to UK. It's a scary though to pick a country "for the rest of my life".
If it's about traveling whenever I want to I think I would pick UK.

4. What's your favourite clothing item?
My jackets and boots!

5. If you get to choose a trip with a famous/non-famous person, who would you choose and why?
No idea... maybe I would just grab a guy with me that I think would be fun to hang out with and make out with from time to time, haha.

6. What's your dream job?

Wow, definitely a creative one, in one way or another.

7. What got you into blogging?
I wanted to express myself... I think when I was younger I wrote the things I didn't always dared to say in front of everyone.

8. Whats your favourite song right now?
Surely one of The Hunna songs, I always listen the most to the bands I've recently seen live, haha.

9. Whats your favourite drink?
Tea (regular and iced), water, Diet Coke and one that gets me tipsy, haha.

10. If you could live like a character from a film or series, who would it be and why?
Cat woman! Or someone from Harry Potter books, haha.

11. What do you really want to experience before you die?
True love, success, see all my favourite bands live, see more of the world, meet even more people that affect me positively and that I affect them in the same way... there's so much I want to do before I die! I'm far long from done here!

Min första spelning efter flytten till LA (jag har bott här två månader redan, hur sjukt är inte det?!) var med Nothing But Thieves. Ett band som jag hade hört väldigt lite av innan, men jävlar vad de tog mig med storm på spelningen!

Det är ett band för Muse lovers sägs det, och jag kan hålla med om det, men även för oss som faktiskt inte är så frälsta av Muse som de flesta verkar vara. För mig är Nothing But Thieves bättre om jag ska vara helt ärlig. En uppgraderad variant av Muse helt enkelt!


Nothing But Thieves was the first band I saw live after my move to LA (I've lived here for two months already!). I was bit skeptical because everyone I knew compared them to Muse and I'm not a big fan of that band. They proved me wrong! I loved their show and the singer has amazing voice! NBT is like an upgraded version of Muse!

Han såg på mig. Blicken var varm och förstående. De kastanjebruna ögonen var fyllda med något jag hade sett innan. Glöd. Nyfikenhet. Kanske även begär, men inte på det vilda sättet. Det gömde sig något mer i hans blick, något jag inte kunde tyda. Han blinkade inte. Hans ögon följde envist mina, släppte inte mig förrän jag tittade bort. Något väcktes i mig. Något som jag länge hade förnekat. Något som jag hade glömt bort. Han märkte det. Jag kollade upp igen. Som i trans stirrade jag rakt in i hans ögon, ändå kunde jag se leendet som sakta växte fram på hans läppar. Han förstod. Jag log tillbaka.
Vi bytte aldrig några ord. Det behövdes inte. Han såg på mig. Han såg mig. Han såg in i mig.

Igår var jag på Gröna Lund och skulle fota Nixxi Sixx's band SIXX:A.M. Inget konstigt, jag brukar ju göra sådant ibland, right? Men när jag kom fram fick jag veta att diket inte skulle vara tillgängligt för oss fotografer, istället skulle vi fota från VIP-balkongen som ligger sjukt långt ifrån scenen. Snacka om att jag fick panik (de flesta av fotografer var besvikna)! Jag, som många andra, hade inte rätt objektiv med mig för sådan typ av plåtning så det blir inga snygga bilder den här gången, synd! Jag förstår att det inte är Gröna Lunds fel, de fick info sent de också... Men det känns ändå tråkigt.
Spelningen var i alla fall bra. Bandet är definitivt tightare än Mötley Crüe var senast jag såg dem och de är roliga att kolla på också. Inte den bästa spelningen jag någonsin sett, men definitivt värt att spana in. Speciellt för vissa liveversioner av deras låtar!


I was was supposed to shoot Nixxi Sixx 's band SIXX:A.M at Gröna Lund yesterday. But when I arrived I was told that instead of taking pictures in front of the stage, like we normally do, we were going to take pictures from the VIP balcony that is super far from the stage. I, like many others, had wrong lens with me for such type of photo-shoot. So there will be no pictures. Such a shame!
The gig was good though. The band is definitely tighter than Mötley Crüe was the last time I saw them and they are fun and energetic.
