This week where in the world is lola? picked the EYE CANDY topic of LA because I’m headed there for the weekend to have a glam tour of the ‘CITY OF ANGELS’. It’ll be fun to do up Los Angeles and the Golden State of California like the stars do!
Of course I will be staying in swanky style at Sofitel Los Angeles and having drinks and dinner in some of the city’s hot spots. I’m looking forward to getting dolled up for the day by stylists from Fragola and having a fab photo shoot. Discovering more of West Hollywood & Santa Monica will also be a treat BUT the BEST part of all is sharing this weekend with 3 other GLAMOROUS GALS – @JETSETextra, @MrsOAroundWorld and @VanityGirl and this is exactly why it’ll be even more of a delicious EYE CANDY experience!

This week where in the world is lola? picked the EYE CANDY topic of SEATTLE! I’m SOOOO excited to be featuring the EMERALD CITY as my EYE CANDY because 1) I always wanted to get to Seattle one day AND 2) I’m thrilled that this travel dream is coming true in just over a week. It’s only made THAT MUCH BETTER by the fact that I’ll be seeing great friends!
I CAN’T WAIT to check out Seattle! It looks so stunning in all its photos. Just look at its modern skyline, the gorgeous bay and Mount Rainier…all in one place!! My trip will be a whirlwind tour but I still plan to get a sense of this charming & cool city by checking out some of its various districts and visiting the famous and unanimously favorite to tourists and locals alike, Pike Place. With Seattle’s history so closely tied to Native American Indians, the logging industry and the gold rush, I feel like I’m heading to the Wild West. Given that it’s one of the fastest growing cities in the USA, I feel there’s a BIG chance I’m going to fall in love with it. I’m certainly ready for whatever adventures are in store for Lola!
Now tell me, what’s EYE CANDY about Seattle to you?

This week where in the world is lola? picked the EYE CANDY topic of MONTREAL! Why, you ask? Because I’m one lucky gal who’s returning to THE CITY OF 100 STEEPLES this weekend. As I’ve written before, I feel as though Montrealers and Lola are kindred spirits. What’s even better than returning to Montreal? Returning to Montreal with super fun traveling girlfriends.
CAN’T WAIT to check out Montreal in the summertime PLUS a new hotel property, have some great meals & cocktails out on the town, take a boat & bike tour AND check out the music fest that is going down right now – Piknic Electronik.

plus a little food porn
pleeeease don’t cut lola off!
so you may be wondering a couple of things. one, what exactly did all these alcoholic beverages look like in Costa Brava?! i know how you love my photos of cocktails and boozy stories. don’t worry, i didn’t disappoint in my visit to Spain. i pretty much only have photos of myself enjoying the local spirits! please take a gander.
let’s just start at the beginning with local beer
then it was cava cava cava
first of maaaaannnny gin & tonics
lola interrupts this amazing cocktails photo essay for a G&T break
beer with a faux soldier – i heart his eye patch
sangria the size of my head
still more G&T cocktails – ughhhh
catalan sangria made with cava
no lunch is complete without rose
AND WAIT FOR IT…
no dinner is complete without gin & tonics
the other thing i’m sure you’re thinking is why only a little food porn? i mean Spain is full of great food! well, while there was plenty of jamon for all to enjoy, lola pretty much stuck to a liquid diet. why? because i’m a dumb ass. of the food i did try, the cheese and ham were incredible.
leg of jamon anyone?
HANG ON what’s that? wine & cheese packaged together. me encanta!
AND i cannot say enough great things about the lunch and dinner i had on my blog trip in Costa Brava. delicious seafood – like the best i ever had AND wonderful paella. TO. DIE. FOR. thank you Costa Brava tourism board for making our incredible arrangements with Club Giverola & Es Blanc for the wonderful meals. they were pretty much all i ate while in Spain!

This week where in the world is lola? picked the EYE CANDY topic of the NEW YORK CITY! once upon a time, lola actually lived in the ole BIG APPLE and had a great time there. now it’s just a place i enjoy visiting a few times a year. i’m so glad i once called myself a New Yorker but i prefer to just be a tourist these days. there is something so thrilling about NYC. it’s like everything is on high-speed. it’s definitely a city full of all kinds of EYE CANDY be that fabulous hotels, amazing restaurants, rich culture or burgeoning fashion trends.
and, from the looks of it, i will be returning to the CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS in October to celebrate one of my favorite girlfriend’s birthdays. CAN’T WAIT to check out a new hotel property, have a great meal & cocktails out on the town and maybe pick up a favorite new fashion find.
have you been to NYC? what’s eye candy about the Big Apple to you? let me know!
XO – lola – in a NY state of mind
