Hey bloggers,

It’s official, I have graduated from college and I’m super excited about my future. God has been so faithful to me during my years at university that I know he has mind blowing plans for me in the future.

As a graduation gift, my parents took me to Beverly Hills, California 🙏🏽. I had the time of my life. It felt so good to relax, unwind and shop (of course).

Here we go…


The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.

As soon as you walk into the hotel lobby, you are greeted by a doors-man and a big smile. The hotel is decorated from head to toe with Christmas decorations and Christmas music. Everything from the car service to the food was beyond amazing! Hilton knows how to treat their guest.

Fun Fact: The hotel has a rich history with the Golden Globes, Oscars and other galas/ red carpet events. In addition, I love the classic pictures that were right outside of our room.

tourist vibes

We toured Venice Beach, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Bel- Air and Marina Del Rey with the best tour guide at LA City Tours 1. This was the best tour ever, I learned so much from this tour. To be be honest, I might have to move to Bel-Air. Those multi- million dollar homes are gorgeous 😭


Shopping was the best part! Westfield Century City which is a high-end shopping center, stores like Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Cole Haan, Free People, Zara, Michael Kors, and many other stores are located there.

Of course, I am a foodie! I loved Shake Shack, Randy’s Donunts, Bibigo, and Sprinkles.

Fun Fact: When you spend a combination of $100 or more from any stores other than the major department stores, Westfield will give you $25 back.

graduation dinner ⤵️

I had my graduation dinner at the Waldorf Astoria, on the rooftop of course. Our waiter surprised me with a sweet treat after dinner. The best dinner ever…

The view was so amazing that we could see all of Beverly Hills, Bel-Air and some of Los Angeles.

This was the best graduation gift ever. I had so much fun. I’m realizing, hard work truly pays off. So blessed and so thankful!

Now, it’s time to enjoy the rest of the holidays.

Until next time…
