the truth about LA

It has already been going on three years since I made the initial decision to attend college in LA. While this is technically a school-based thing where I would always still be partially back home in New York too, seeking a career in the entertainment industry made this decision feel more permanent from the start. That being noted, I went from someone who was living in a completely different realm on the other side of the country, totally afraid and not-too-willing to leave home to someone who accepts living in two different locations as a normal thing at this point.

With the exception of those I met through first year June orientation and the obvious celebrities who most definitely live in LA but I did not know personally, I came to this city not knowing anybody. I had visited briefly, but LA is much different from my hometown and different from even itself from the eyes of the tourist.

These past couple years, I have learned a lot. Quite frankly, I keep having more experiences, opportunities, and lessons every day. Nonetheless, there are some things about living in LA that I did not expect to find out.

  • It can be lonely in paradise. Everyone is pursuing their artsy dreams and passions and while it is inspiring to be around like-minded people, a lot of time is still spent creating your own dreams.
  • The fitness culture is very real. Not only are others always wearing athletic gear and attending the surplus of available fitness classes, but the food surrounds maintaining healthy lifestyles as well! Calories are posted everywhere and there are far more vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, organic, GMO-free, etc. foods available than I ever even knew about.
  • Everyone seems to have spontaneous photoshoots. Partially, because it’s fun and everywhere here is so photogenic, but also, to maintain an image that usually links to creative career endeavours.
  • The weather does in fact dip every once in a very rare blue moon, but that’s when productive, brightly color dressed people suddenly bring out the grey sweats and Netflix.
  • The weather, mostly, really is perfect ALL OF THE TIME and you can wear anything you want.
  • People don’t judge. Instead, they express themselves however they want confidently.
  • This place is kind of messed up. I may not know too many other places, but LA is a really weird, unique place. It always reminds me of Wonderland…”we’re all mad here”.
  • Just because the beach is close by, that does not mean that you will be able to get there half as often as you would like.
  • It’s chill. Maybe not surfer-chill, but unless you’re on the freeway during rush hour (which is most of the day and night anyways), people are generally pretty calm about everything.
  • Everybody is networking all of the time! If you are anywhere, chances are, most of those around you have a business card waiting to go and a sales “elevator” pitch for something.
  • People know people. This goes for everywhere, but in LA, usually that means that somehow, celebrities of some sort are involved.
  • People are genuinely really nice.
  • “Hollywood” is fake. The glamorous side is real, but in a way that disguises that this is the livelihoods, careers, jobs, and dreams of so many people. There is so much more to the story when it comes down to how everything is run here.
  • It can get overwhelming. There is always something to do and the motivation to do it but there’s no way one can do it all at once. Learning to budget time, money, to-do’s, and even experiences is not easy to do.
  • For a “big” famous city, after being in it for a while, LA seems relatively small.

But most importantly…

  • I really love it here and I know that this is truly the right place for me!

Look, I have learned so much about this place and I continue to learn more and more. It is a land I am proud to call one of my homes.

a “latte” wellness

I love lattes and all things coffee and tea. Recently on my regular Pinterest scroll, I came across some posts about these Wellness Lattes and I thought that I would try it out.

aesthetic movies you should watch

As a film and television production student and all around entertainment enthusiast, yes, I watch as much tv and movies as humanly possible. That being said, there are some movies that are too beautiful and aesthetic to not mention here. So, if you also enjoy a good movie, here are some of my top recommendations.

La La Land

Iconic. Classic. Musical. It has truly become my favorite movie. I love the story, verisimilitude, coloring, costumes, music, and literally every little detail to this beautifully crafted film. Especially if you live in LA, this is a perfect movie for you! See the beautifully tragic and complex relationship bloom and grow with actress, Mia (Emma Stone) and musician, Seb (Ryan Gosling).

Meet Joe Black

Don’t let the long time frame fool you…this movie goes by WAY too quickly! Follow a young Brad Pitt in the role of Joe Black, also known as, Death. You heard me right! But what happens when Death falls in love and perhaps even, experiences life?

Big Eyes

This was a movie I watched because it was on Netflix and I recognized Amy Adams in it. Especially at the beginning, it seems like a lovely chick-flick rom-com but quickly slopes to a much darker turn. Also, there is an amazing song (called, Big Eyes) by Lana Del Rey that captures this film’s essence so well. Oh, and it’s directed by Tim Burton but stands out from his usual motifs.

Midnight In Paris

This film had been on my list for a while but watching it made me wish I had watched it sooner! This story follows a writer (Owen Wilson) whom is visiting Paris with his bride to be and stumbles upon a way to time travel back to his desired era; the roaring twenties! The time travel, story complexities, and turning of events are really well done.

The Lovely Bones

Based on the book by Alice Sebold, the movie follows the story of a young girl named Susie (Saoirse Ronan) who gets murdered within the first chapter. The story continues with beautiful imagery to tell the much darker tale of the life she had once led and everything that happened in life and death after her demise.

The Great Gatsby

The Baz Lurmann version is absolutely visually stunning. Not only does it bring the original classic novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald to life, but it combines old with the new through music. I highly recommend watching this if you have not done so already!

So get out the popcorn this movie night and enjoy some seriously well made and very aesthetic movies! What is one of your favorites? Let me know in the comments below or tweet it at me @sarahfhamilton!

Happy Movie Night! (or day!)

being on the ellen show!

I have taken two Warner Brothers backlot studio tours in the past few years and there was two facts about the Ellen Show in particular that I remember:

  1. It is incredibly difficult to get tickets and be an audience member. Tickets are free, but there are so many people going for them, so unless you book months in advance and can work flexibility into the mix (a.k.a., basically live close by and drop everything to go) then you may get to go.
  2. Ellen’s first vacation was to the WB studio tour and now she has her entire show in production there until she basically decides to stop it.

Being in college here and knowing months in advance that there was a slight chance that I would be here in May (which I happen to be!), I signed up for tickets months out. I was originally scheduled for early May and then got an email inviting me to a later date instead since the original day would no longer work for me. I agreed, of course, and then got an email a few weeks later with standby tickets.

Basically, this is how the tickets work:

  • Standby: You are not guaranteed to be a studio audience member until you are in the studio on the set. If the guaranteed ticket holders don’t all show up, you get a spot. If you don’t get a spot, you get to go right behind where the audience part of the stage is in the special riffraff room during the show. You may be a seat filler for anyone who leaves for whatever reason. If you are in the riffraff room, however, you get a guaranteed ticket for a future show.
  • guaranteed: This ticket guarantees your attendance as a studio audience member.

A week before, I got a morning call from the Ellen Show team confirming myself and my party. One of my friends could not attend, so I had to cancel out her name but they also allow for changing up your guests up to a week in advance. Information is sent via email for parking, local food options, what to wear, and all that good stuff.


The day of, my friend and I drove out to Burbank and entered Gate 3 for parking (which was free!). At the ground level of that parking complex there was several benches, a pop-up shop, tv sets, snack cart, restrooms, and check-in for the show. We had to show individual ID’s and then were given Ellen blue passes with numbers. We were then informed that we were welcome to stay or leave, but be back by 12:30. So, we took those cool passes and walked over to the local Lemonade for lunch. (Eat before the show!) We came back in time to see a limo enter the lot.


Myth buster right here: most celebrities don’t take limos everywhere and tinted window SUV’s are far more likely. We wondered who would be that extra, but the second we found out that one of the guests that day was Nicki Minaj…the limo made sense.


The next couple hours were a lot of waiting, which is the reality of a lot of TV and movies when you’re going to be in it (or at least, hoping to be!). They played past show clips on the tv’s and offered snacks and such. Audience scouts went around and talked to people, eventually calling them out back. I read a post before the event about this and knew that they were looking for guaranteed guests to potentially be selected for games if there were any during the show that particular day. My number being 314 kept me waiting for a long time, but eventually, we got into a line and crossed the street, going into a side entrance of the studio.


The line just joined another line for security in a long, narrow hallway. Eventually, we got to the riffraff room and they called people into the studio by numbers. Technically, my friend and I were the start of the seatfillers, but we got to sit together and stay in the same seats the whole time. The show began shortly and the fun instantly began! (It was fun to begin with, but there was a lot of waiting in Burbank summer heat.)

We danced. Cameras rolled even when the actual episode wasn’t taped. In fact, nothing was taped in order and with several cameras and the magic of live and post editing, not everything that got on camera got into the actual episode(s) filmed. Parts were filmed out-of-order too. Commercial breaks were spent dancing and having random dance battles.

The show is not filmed live, but they edit the interviews and game portion as if it were. Additional clips are added in afterwards and the order is put together at a different time. I was there on a Monday, which meant that Tuesday and some of Wednesday’s episodes were filmed that day. They don’t film on Friday’s either. Yes, there was a part after filming Monday’s episode where Ellen and Twitch changed and Ellen came out to yet another intro where we all acted like it was a new day. She mentioned something along the lines of being “so glad that it’s a Wednesday, not a Monday”. I haven’t been able to see the episodes myself yet, but if that is left in, most of the viewers will think it is a dig at annoying Mondays but really, all of us laughing audience members were noting the irony because *Hollywood magic* it was still Monday.

The show carried on and it was interesting to watch it all unfold. Despite the fact that we filmed more than just one episode, everything happened so quickly. There were timers for the amount of on-air time and commercial break timing. Every once in a while, we were informed that they were going to film a pick up, which is basically an additional clip to be edited in like it happened in the first place. The guests that day were Nicki Minaj, Robin Wright, and Andy Cohen. Of course, I saw Ellen and Twitch too! Between takes for the interviews for Nicki, what appeared to be her makeup crew kept touching up her makeup. It was strange though listening to Starships and jamming out with the audience but also her right there also jamming mid-makeup touch-up. I also happened to be sitting right behind one of Ellen’s invited guests, so she came over and have him a hug and awkwardly smiled at me since I was, you know, like right there and apparently staring more obviously than I had thought.


Before I knew it, the show was over. There was no time to actually get photos or meet anyone personally, but that was to be expected. We were informed not to take photos while on the set (whoopsies!) and then were directed back to the riffraff room to collect our prizes ($150 visa gift card and drawstring bag). Those selected to be on the episode for the games or dance and singing specials were sent to another room to sign wavers and collect their TV’s and whatnot.

We left the studio the same way we got in at our own pace (some stayed in the riffraff room to shop or use the restroom) and headed back to the parking lot. It was the end to an amazing experience. Plus, if you watch carefully, you can see me in two episodes filmed on the second to last day of taping for Season 14! *14 is my favorite number!

5 tips for a lazy day

…so you have got the case of the lazy bones today!

As the summer has already begun, I have found myself revolving around the stages of summer:

  • DO ALL OF THE THINGS! BE PRODUCTIVE! FREEDOM!!!
  • Do what you want, when you want! (sleep, food, Netflix, pool, lay on floor…the list goes on)
  • Want to do the things. Procrastinate. Lose energy to do them.
  • Crash and Burn.
  • Repeat the cycle.

While this process can get old pretty quick, there is absolutely nothing wrong with taking a lazy day where you literally give zero cares about how productive you should be and if you’re eating ok and all that stuff. Everything is good in moderation, so if today happens to be a day where you have the freedom to just take a personal day, GO FOR IT and ENJOY.

Today, if you can’t tell already, is one of those days for me. I have been slightly productive, but regardless, I am making it a point to keep it easy and rest as much as I can. Regardless, the guilt of taking a beautiful day in LA to not go out and do fun things is overwhelming so the least I can do is write out yet another post!

5 tips for a wonderful lazy day

for when your get up and go has got up and left.

  1. Sleep in! All of the sleep! I mean, don’t mess with sleeping too much but if you feel lazy, you are probably tired to begin with so sleep is a definitely good way to go.
  2. Get smaller tasks done! Have a few emails to send, laundry to do, or miscellaneous smaller tasks? Suddenly, they are looking more appealing than the larger tasks, so get a few things done.
  3. Companionship! Have a lazy day with your family, friends, pet, a good book, instrument, Netflix…having some sort of companion makes any lazy day infinitely better!
  4. TREAT YO SELF! This motto is the best on a lazy day! Do what you want to do and avoid worrying about it. Example: eating chocolate ice cream and staying in bed all day…healthiest decision? Perhaps not, but if it sounds wonderful and you have the means, why not enjoy!?
  5. Embrace Calmness. Silence. Music. Creating art. Reflection. Whatever calms you, do it.

I hope that you have an amazing lazy day! If you do, let me know what you’re up to via the comments below or at twitter @sarahfhamilton. Or don’t. You do you.

buttermilk cinnamon mocha pancakes

Got a morning sweet tooth? Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not enjoy something sweet, delicious, easy to make and healthy?

Buttermilk Cinnamon Mocha Pancakes

Ingredients (what I used): 

*I eyed up ingredient amounts

  • Buttermilk whole wheat pancake and waffle mix
  • Cinnamon
  • Strawberries
  • Water (or almond milk)
  • Mocha mix (or coffee and hot chocolate combined)
  • Optional egg (for protein boost)
  • Optional toppings (fruit, honey, maple syrup, etc.)

Recipe: 

  1. In a bowl, mix pancake mix with some cinnamon.
  2. Add some water or milk and mix together until creamy consistency (not too clumpy or watered down!). If you add an egg, now is the time.
  3. On a medium heated stove pan, pour mixture.
  4. When the pancake begins to bubble, flip it and watch to avoid burning.
  5. Place pancake on plate. Repeat process until there is no more mixture left to make.
  6. Slice strawberries (or chosen fruit) and put them on top. Add desired toppings.

ADDITIONAL MOCHA TOPPING: 

I had made a mocha using the Starbucks Via Mocha mix and almond milk with extra cinnamon. I drizzled some of this on top of my pancakes as a syrup substitute and it was amazingly delicious!

If you try this recipe, definitely let me know! It is filling and definitely perfect for a stay at home brunch! Tweet it at me @sarahfhamilton.

Enjoy!

being a local LA tourist

College is definitely middle-ground territory in many, many ways, but perhaps, one of my favorite is being part tourist and part resident in LA all at once. Sure, there are plenty of places like the Santa Monica Pier, Hollywood Walk of Fame, the studios of Burbank, and the classic, In-N-Out, but there are also amazing places that I have discovered since being here that are more local-native, so to speak.

Here are some of my favorite spots as a local LA tourist! (*in no particular order and not all specifically in LA, but close enough.)

SIGHTS

  • Griffith Observatory & Park

If you saw La La Land, this is a stop you should definitely make! If you haven’t, go here anyway! Sunsets are a perfect time.

  • Getty Villa 

In Malibu, this lovely museum with incredible views makes you feel like a greek god/goddess and the Mamma Mia soundtrack will run through your head the entire time there.

  • Manhattan Beach

Shops, sand, and lovely views everywhere you look!

  • Playa Del Rey beach

For when you just want sand and spontaneous beach moments with sand, ocean, & lovely sunsets.

  • Santa Monica Promenade

The beach and the pier are amazing tourist spots, but I had no idea that there is an entire promenade area too!

  • The Last Bookstore

In Downtown LA (DTLA), this bookstore is absolutely every reader/writer’s dream come true.

  • LACMA Lanterns

Want to shamelessly take all of the photos? Stop by these classic LA lamps.

  • The Grove & The Americana

These outdoor shopping plazas are incredibly fun with all of their stores and events!

TASTES

*With my orders if they are my go-to’s. Most places, I change it up a bit.

  • K.C.’s CrepesMy order – Iced jasmine green boba tea & apple cinnamon crepe.
  • Crave Cafe
  • Malibu Farm
  • Duke’s Malibu // My order: I split the fish tacos and lobster macaroni & cheese!
  • Alfred Coffee & KitchenMelrose // My order – almond milk iced latte or rose petal tea latte (again, with the almond milk).
  • Lemonade LAMy order – White truffle mac & cheese with blueberry mint lemonade (seasonal).
  • Urth Cafe
  • Paradise Bowls Manhattan Beach // My order – GUACHO (small acai bowl. blend: banana, strawberries, blueberries, acai, apple juice. toppings: granola, honey, strawberries, blueberries, goji berries)

This list could easily be a whole lot longer, so keep checking back for more post like this! if you visit any of these places, definitely let me know in the comment section or tweet it at me @sarahfhamilton.

the earthquake

Being in LA (or California in general) is literally a looming fate of “the Big One”…aka, that earthquake we keep hearing about. Is it a conspiracy? Are we really doomed? Who’s to say? Point of the matter is, as far as I am concerned, “the Big One” keeps shaking up my world and the Earth is still technically still.

Okay, here’s a look at the life of a college junior (!!!!!) who’s trying to have a great summer (HAGS!) but has a pretty shaken up world right about now. (*writing is therapeutic, so if this is what will help me cope with my current stress, then perhaps, it could help some of you as well)

A month before the semester ended and school let out, I was far from ready to go back home to New York. Don’t get me wrong here; I love it there and I miss my family dearly but there is a level of love and appreciation for my life in LA that going from somewhere where my dreams are looming in front of me like a puppet on strings to somewhere with high humidity and a lack of summer opportunities for me kind of…well, I think you get it. Long story short, I knew I would go back for a bit at some point this summer, but it sure wasn’t going to be the full time if I could help it.

But here’s the thing; I am wayyyy to over productive and since my passions align with my career, I am technically a “workaholic” and the longer I am here, the more I can’t say “no” to cool opportunities. This isn’t bad, of course, but then I crashed before Finals Week and ever since have been longing to go back to New York for a while. I love it here, but a break is greatly needed. That is exactly why I applied to everything and tried to make as many plans so that at least one or two of them would actually work out for me. Long story short, I needed the money and the opportunities to stay productive and avoid my typical summer slump. This was a journey started even before the new year so to be fair, I have spent this entire year so far “waiting to hear back” from so many people for so many different things.

AND THAT IS JUST IT; I really don’t care one way or another, I just want to know where I stand!

You probably can tell by this post alone that I typically like having control over my life but to be fair, I have recently come to the conclusion that not everything can be controlled. I’m still in LA and I still miss home and pretty much nothing has changed in regards to my standpoint for summer plans. This has gone on so long and I am so exhausted. So, when May rolled around, my plan looked like this…

  1. I would stay for the month (working on videos and miscellaneous LA stuff) and IF I heard back from an opportunity that would keep me longer, then I would decide at that point what I would do based on the situation.
  2. There’s a part two because the opportunity part seemed unlikely so in reality, I just wanted a bit of additional LA time and then when nothing popped up I’d be like “okay, LA! See you in a few months, I am going to peace out and chill back home because I deserve a break.”

…but then this week I have been bombarded by to-do’s. My fatal downfall?

  • F.O.M.O.
  • Workaholic towards passions
  • Either being overly or underly productive (there is no in-between!)

That sums it all up.

So now I am in the works of booking myself through freelance video services (hmu if you’re interested), writing a novel that has been “in the works” far too long, auditioning my butt off for so many projects because I am addicted and totally in the loop of this now and working on multiple videos a week to post twice on YouTube while building up the channel and this blog.

I’m very involved in my LA life right now but as my schedule leaks over to June and apparently, potentially beyond that, I honestly have next to no idea what to do. I can never fully win. Yes, I have two homes now; my one in NY with family, friends, and the comfort of the past (which who knows how long I have with the remnants of all of that!?!?) and the one in LA with dreams, opportunities, friends and my productivity levels at an all time extreme high. More than anything, I want to really embrace being in both but that is more difficult than anyone could possibly imagine. It isn’t easy for me to take a break from all of this LA-ness and it isn’t easy to be there and miss out on everything here.

So, what’s a girl to do?!?!?

I don’t know and I wish I did.

The hardest part is knowing that this is completely up to me now based on what I know presently and taking guesses about what could potentially happen. There is nobody and no excuse I can truly turn to right now to make this decision for me and that sucks too. Which is exactly why I am writing this out here. Writing helps and if it gets my thoughts out, it may help any of you who could be going through something similar.

Okay, so maybe the title is a bit clickbaity but in the words of Augustus Waters from The Fault In Our Stars, “it’s a metaphor”.

The symbolic earthquake is how my life is shaken up. I have a lot of control but at the same time, not that much. There is no right and wrong path to take and my current worlds are chaotic. Regardless, I will always keep hope on my side, I know now better than ever that everything truly is temporary and everything will work out. That doesn’t mean the stress consuming me right now feels any better.

I usually end posts with a question and even though this isn’t a normal topic I cover, a question is still in order, I suppose. So, what do you do when you are stressed? (also, what advice do you have for me with this situation? *lol I need it)

first apartment essentials

Living at home is one thing and then living on campus for school is another…and then there’s the first apartment scenario where you have to learn to adult FAST. While the first apartment situation has been going well, I thought I would share some of my first apartment essentials…

Firstly, I highly recommend thinking about how you can spend less and use more of what you already have. Since I was moving from my suite (fancy dorm life) on campus right into an off-campus apartment, I already had something to work with. I recommend thinking in terms of four…

  1. Bedroom: Even if it’s an air mattress, figure out bedding, lighting, and ways to use your space efficiently, but in the cozy and cutest way possible. You want it to feel home-like, so decorate with what you have accordingly. My situation right now is temporary, but by using bins holding more stuff and scarves/fabric on top, I got instant tables that double as storage and packing. Utilize everything in creative ways and remember that less is more! (a long scarf also can work as a curtain too!)
  2. Kitchen: This is a two parter…one, appliances/pots/pans/utensils/Tupperware/mugs. You don’t have to go overboard, but just having a general overview of this will help a lot! Next, food is important. Think of healthy options that last a long time. If you’re like me and semi-able to cook, have cereals, oatmeal, eggs, milk, and consider some frozen dinners too. As easy as Postmates and eating out of the apartment is, you will save a lot by picking up groceries! Also, soups, noodles, and a sauce jar or two is ideal. (*easy recipes are regularly posted on this site too!)
  3. Bathroom: Towels, soaps/cleansers (for the apartment and you too!), and the regular bathroom essentials kind of go without saying here.
  4. Closet: Clothing and shoes are obvious but also, I recommend bins for storage! Having them makes transporting things so much easier than paper boxes and they double as smaller desks/tables too. Staying organized is key!

Okay, so here are some specific items I personally recommend…

  • Water Heater
  • Bins
  • Lighting (a lamp and some string lights go a long way!)
  • Mugs (always…they work for everything!)
  • Laundry Bag
  • First Aid (only a couple of days in, glass broke in my hands and having band aids and such on hand literally saved my sanity and finger)
  • Extra hand towels (dishes, bathroom, etc.)

To be fair, it doesn’t take a lot to manage living. Like dorm shopping, it’s really easy to get caught up in all of the adorable home decor that every store claims as “essentials” but having a touch of personal cuteness and a decent amount of practicableness is really all of the “essential” you will need. That whole saying, “less is more” is true. If your apartment has amenities like a pool, gym, or local transportation, take advantage of that too!

What are some of your best apartment/living essentials? Let me know in the comments below or tweet me them @sarahfhamilton!

healthy & easy breakfast burrito // recipe

I love breakfast foods and literally will eat them at any point of the day, so I debated the title of this post. That being said, here is an easy to make, low-cal, flavorful recipe for you to enjoy!

Ingrediants:

  • one egg
  • salt, pepper, desired seasoning
  • uncooked tortilla wrap
  • arugula
  • sour cream
  • cheese
  • hot sauce

*for a vegan option, make substitutes for the dairy products

Recipe: 

  1. In a small pan, cook the tortilla wrap until bubbles form. Then place the tortilla wrap on a side plate.
  2. Cook an egg and scramble it. Add desired seasonings, cheese, and hot sauce (if you want it cooked in) and then place egg on tortilla.
  3. Top with arugula, sour cream, and the hot sauce (if you want it to top it off).
  4. Let cool a bit and wha-la!

I paired this with some carrots on the side and proceeded to wrap the tortilla burrito-style after taking the photo. This filled me up for a while and provided a delicious, protien-filled lunch option that took less than twenty minutes to cook (and eat!).

If you try this recipe, let me know what you think via twitter @sarahfhamilton!
