Oasis in the City

           Everyone needs a little getaway every now and then and this weekend I got mine! My girlfriends from Little Black Shell & Pink Creative Studio and I decided to treat ourselves to a fun and relaxing weekend together. We started by having delicious brunch and after a few cocktails we came across a place called Peace Awareness Labyrinth and Gardens so we decided to check it out. And Im so glad we did because this place is so beautiful! Its surrounded by zen gardens where you can meditate and enjoy nature without having to drive too far. In my opinion the best kept secret in town! I felt like I was in a mini vacation plus the people in charge where so nice and welcoming. I left feeling like I’d just been in a spa and this is why I love blogging because there is always some new place to explore. I love traveling and I do it as often as I can BUT the thing is you don’t have to go far or spend a lot of money to have fun when there are so many things to do around here! So the whole purpose of my blog is just that, to explore and share these places with you and hopefully inspire you to get out there and do the same.

It was a wonderful weekend and the best part is that I got to spend it with the girls;) There’s nothing like having a day where you get to be silly and just have a good time, its exactly what I needed. Afterwards I did a little research and I found out that effective July 2015 Eventbrite tickets will be required to enter the grounds so pay a visit before if you can;) I recommend having brunch at The Commisary in the Line Hotel and afterwards head over here since its so close by, that way you can make a day of it! I’ll be posting about that other place some other time but for now I hope you enjoyed this post.

Thanks for reading,

Love, Erika

  1. These pictures are gorgeous! I’ve always wanted to go to the Peace Awareness Labyrinth and Gardens but it’s a bit too far for me (over an hour and a half). The Lake Shrine Temple on Sunset Blvd. is similar to this and amazing, you should totally check it out! I love these types of posts, adventure logs with your friends. Your outfit is amazing as well, I NEED that kimono in my closet.

    1. Yes I had the best time! And thank you, you can probably still find it there <3 But Yeah that is a little far:/ I will have to check The Lake Shrine, it sounds amazing! Thanks so much for the tip, Im always trying to find new places 😉
