Humans - I could say many things about the Americans, but I love that most people in LA are themselves. It's okey to talk yourself up. It's okay to be too much sometimes. Something Norwegians could learn from. It's easy to fit in, and feel welcome. As a teenager I cared too much about the opinion of others, and finally after being here for a year I've realized as long as I have my family and closes friends other people opinions does not really matter.
Climate - the sun and the temperature has to be mentioned in this post. The weather effects my mood, which means sun everyday is a good day, well, almost!
Beach and the city - best of both worlds, city feeling one day and sand, ocean and bikini the next. Perfect if you like both and don't want to choose.
Inspiration - if you open your eyes you could find inspiration almost everywhere you go. Street art, fashion, fitness, music, photos, art, food, the list goes on. Walking the street could be like a museum. Eating at a restaurant could be a fashion show.
Food - I have tried lots of new food this past year, and discovered a new passion for food I didn't know I had! In LA it's easy to be healthy, and it's easy to be unhealthy, it's all up to you, haha. So much vegan food and healthier options. It's fun to try new food and get inspiration for an healthier everyday life.
