My Guide to L.A. – See

Sep 1st, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

Today marks the end of my Guide to L.A. posts.  I hope you had as much fun reading the series as I did putting it together.  As I mentioned in yesterday’s article, to make things easier on myself I broke up my Things to Do recommendations into two categories, “Play” and “See,” though some of the places featured on each list could easily be found on the other.  Read on for my top picks of things to see while in town.

1. Hollywood Sign (Intersection of […]

My Guide to L.A. – Play

Aug 31st, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

I originally had more than twenty places featured on this list, but, to make it easier on myself, I decided to break up my Things To Do category into “Play” and “See.”  Today, I’ll be covering Play, aka Los Angeles activities and attractions that I recommend.  Enjoy!

1. Disneyland (1313 Disneyland Drive, Anaheim) – OK, OK, so this one is not technically located in L.A., but because it is one of my favorite places in the entire world, let alone Southern California, I couldn’t not include […]

My Guide to L.A. – Shopping

Aug 28th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

If there is one thing I love almost as much as stalking, it’s shopping – and shopping in Los Angeles is in a class all its own.  When I first moved to SoCal in 2000, I found myself in retail heaven.  The city boasts a myriad of cute shopping districts, fabulous marketplaces, and one-of-a-kind stores.  Read on for a list of my picks of unique, only-in-L.A. shops and shopping centers where I prefer to lighten my wallet.

1. Lula Mae (100 North Fair Oaks Avenue, Pasadena) […]

My Guide to L.A. – Coffee

Aug 19th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

I love coffee pretty much more than life itself, but very rarely do I visit independent coffee houses.  I am all about my Starbucks.  I know, I know, true java aficionados are probably shaking their heads right now.  But I like consistency – I like knowing that I can go into any Starbucks in any city, state or country and get the same drink.  And it has been my experience that the vast majority of independent coffee houses are sub par.  That being said, there […]

My Guide to L.A. – Restaurants

Aug 18th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

I need to preface this post by stating that I am not in any way, shape or form a foodie.  I enjoy good, fresh fare, but my meal preferences consist mainly of old fashioned comfort foods (you’ll notice many mentions of different fried chicken entrées in the list below).  If a restaurant has bone marrow on the menu, I’m out.  But give me chicken strips and ranch dressing every day of the week and twice on Sundays and I am a happy girl.  This list […]

My Guide to L.A. – Hotels

Aug 17th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

I am constantly told that I would make a great concierge for the city of Los Angeles.  I have explored L.A. so much over the years that I know it like the back of my hand and have accumulated a large inventory of favorite places.  I recently decided to corral that inventory into a guide to L.A. to share with my fellow stalkers.  This guide will not be geared toward filming locations (though there will be some crossover with My Must-Stalk List), but will instead […]

Henry Kyle’s Former House

Oct 22nd, 2013 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes, Haunted Hollywood

Many, many months back, my mom texted me to ask if I had ever stalked the Bel-Air mansion where Texas tycoon Henry Harrison Kyle was murdered on July 22nd, 1983.  Because the property had also once been the residence of filmdom’s first “It Girl,” Clara Bow, my mom thought it would fit in perfectly with my Haunted Hollywood posts.  That was the first that I had ever heard of the place and, of course, started chomping at the bit to stalk it, so I dragged the Grim Cheaper […]
