My trip to LA has come and gone and having been before, I can say that it was reminiscent, pleasant, and overall a positive vibe. If I had to sum it all up, it would be like finishing your large 50% sweet boba with sugar-doused pearls. The first sip gets you excited for the whole drink, the sugar-high keeps you energetic and wanting more, and the last drop leaves you pondering why such a sweet thing must come to an end. The moment we landed in LA and reunited with the besties, we knew the vibe was signed, sealed, and delivered. Like the way the ingredients of boba just perfectly balance each other among various sugar levels, this group of four certainly brought a sweet balance of highs and lows on the trip. There was even the right balance of snoozers to the talkers of teeth. To prevent a flat tire you have to balance out the the PSI’s for any car to function, so as such, we filled our short time together with breaths of fresh air. Before I share what we did on our trip to LA, I’d like to end off by saying that these softhearted comments were brought to you by all the healing crystals and zodiac gemstones we saw on this trip. Now let’s dive right into it.
