I’ve been soaking in the beginning of 2011 in LA with my family, boyfriend, friends, and LA itself and the good food that comes along with it. Not only do I feel the weight gain, but it shows. I had to buy new pants out there because I couldn’t fit into the ones I brought! I’m spoiled. Here’s a compilation of foods I’ve had while being out here. So if you’re drooling, sorry in advance.
