Last Weekend was the 11th annual F*ck Yeah Fest in Los Angeles. In the middle of a heatwave, nearly 40,000 people gathered at L.A Memorial Sports Arena and Exposition Park to see Morrissey, Kanye, Purity Ring, Cold Cave and many more. We had such an awesome time catching our favorite babe Solange while sitting under a tree, chomping on fried snacks. We lost our minds at FKA Twigs, and met so many babes with rad style. What were your favorite FYF moments or looks? @space15twenty #UOonyou #UOaroundyou
I hope everyone had a fun and safe FYF weekend! Though I wasn't able to go, I lived vicariously through the endless tweets, instagram posts, and snapchat stories. I am forever jealous of everyone who was able to see Toro y Moi, Solange, Kaytranada, FKA Twigs, Morrissey, Kanye... the list goes on. A lot of people were upset over Frank Ocean's last minute set drop, but who can really complain when Kanye was the replacement?
Seems like everyone had a pretty sweet weekend by the time the festival was over. Here's hoping next year's lineup is just as good, or even better than this year's! (Maybe Frank Ocean's album will have dropped by then and he'll actually have new stuff to perform, fingers crossed!) Now, check out some of my favorite photos from FYF:

I've already introduced Stefanie Biggel in a previous post about a year ago. For the Autumn/Winter 2015 collection Biggel drew her inspiration from the 90ies classic film KIDS from Larry Clark. Her collection reflects the lives of the teens, reflected on the choice of colours, prints and oversized silhouettes. A combination of feminine and masculine sensibilities, eccentric, nostalgic, irreverent and young.
Last year, a fire took down a long standing Thai bistro on La Brea and Fountain in Los Angeles. Now, Otus Thai Kitchen and Coffee has taken over this site! Along with Intelligentsia coffee, this spot serves thai coffee, and a variety of other specialty house-drinks. On the menu, Mrs. Dang’s crispy rice for lunch. Khao Man Gai, and other Thai specialties for dinner. And on the weekends, a special brunch menu is available! We had the french toast on our first visit, and it was bomb. A cool patio in the back, loads of natural light, this place quickly became one of our favorites.
On my weekly trips to Santa Monica, I always pass by a store called "Record Surplus," right on the corner of Santa Monica and Centinela. With it's giant red signage and wall art, it's hard to miss! Despite how often I'm in the area, I've actually never taken the time to visit the shop. So today, I decided to finally check it out!
It's a great store for all your vintage record needs. They also have a lot of cd's, cassettes, tapes, and dvd's. You definitely won't find anything in here that you would normally see in the vinyl section of Urban Outfitters, but it's a great spot for music lovers and vinyl collectors! They have 3 listening stations in the store where you can sit down and listen to something you've picked out from one of their shelves. Towards the front, they also have an area that they call "The Attic," where nothing is over 92 cents! Check out some more pictures that I took below:

California is home to Big Sur, one of the most beautiful places on earth. This little slice of heaven is about 245 miles northwest of Los Angeles. Its stretch of lush forest roads, and coastline views on the pch, makes for an excellent excuse for a road-trip. Our favorite Big Sur spots are, McWay falls, Bixby Creek Bridge and the beautiful, purple sands of Pfeiffer Beach. Below is a collection of some of our favorite Big Sur shot’s on Instagram.

If you read my article on The Internet's recent album, Ego Death, then you already know that they couldn't release such an amazing compilation of music without releasing a tour too! Today, the band released tour dates, as well as ticket sales. Originally, they released the tour dates on their official twitter, leaving out an LA show. If you've been following them, or the OF group, then you would know that they are all Los Angeles natives, and it would be heartbreaking for the band not to play in their hometown. Minutes after releasing tour dates, they finally announced that they'll actually be kicking off their tour with a show at the El Rey on September 8th! Check out the tour dates below:
