I don't know about you guys but "life without art is just eh".

I easily get lost into abstract paintings there's just something about these paintings: the swirl, splatters, and mix of colors, along with the mystery behind the artwork. I've always been a fan of art but lately I've been so much into abstract watercolor, oil, or acrylic paintings, they just always capture my attention because I love being in my own artsy state of mind. Lately, I just can't get enough of soft pastels especially the combination of dusty pink, sky blue, and hints of gold. Art inspires me in so many ways and I'm hoping to get back to painting again!

Abbot Kinney Adventures


♫ Lavender Diamond- I Don't Recall ♫ 








Shuhari's fresh matcha...so yummy!





I'm all about adventures and Abbot Kinney is one of my fave places to hang out in when I'm in Venice Beach. I just love checking out all the unique shops, cafes, and restaurants! I love how artsy Venice Beach is and this boulevard of shops and restaurants is full of so many artsy and hidden gems.  
After walking around Abbot Kinney I spotted a new matcha place and me being a huge matcha fan had to check out Shuhari. They're known for their delicious all natural authentic Japanese matcha and how could I say no to matcha? haha :) it was definitely worth the stop.
Do you guys have any favorite spots in Abbot Kinney?

Can't wait for more random adventures this year!  So stay tuned for more pictures. 

Hope you all are enjoying your long weekend :)

Hey guys!
I hope you guys' year started off on the right foot :)

I started off exploring around Venice Beach and of course I had to stop by the Mosaic Tile house ! This place was on my bucket list since last year but I finally got around to visiting.
I was so excited since you guys already know I'm a huge art junkie and random hidden art gems are just my fave. 

Cheri and Gonzalo are the owners and artists who have transformed their home into a mosaic/tile work of art! I swear these pictures don't do it justice, you just have to see every itty bitty detail in person. I was so amazed by all their creativity and hard work put into this house! It was great because we also got to meet the couple and they gave us a tour of their home which as you can see is also covered with tiles on the inside from top to bottom and we also got to check out their art studios! 
Their home is the only one that stands out on the block so you can't miss it haha... I love how they transformed their home into a work of art simply because they just felt like it.

I felt so inspired after leaving their home and it made me want to start painting, sketching, and making my collage art again..it's been a while and I miss being in my own art state of mind so that's something I'm going to try to do more this year. 
I love starting the year with a fresh dose of inspiration and this mosaic house did the trick! :) 

Thanks to Cheri and Gonzalo for the tour. Check out their site here and make an appointment if you want to stop by...highly recommend checking it out!
