Wine & Wifi @TheLineHotel

I needed a drink and I needed to write. Couldn’t figure out where until @WriterLe recommended a hotel lobby bar. I had two glasses of wine and got some writing done but not enough. 

The only thing I wish for this experience to be more beneficial to me is that they have a better wine selection. 

This is going to be a norm for me. The Line Hotel + computer + alcohol.

$10 for valet + $7 HH wine (not so great) or $15 wine (still not great)

Perfect Getaway @TheLineHotel

I’ve been wanting a #staycation for a while and now we have the perfect opportunity. We got a one night free voucher for modeling in their wedding shoot and I cannot wait to redeem it!
This hotel is both hip and chic without it being too pretentious. The cool color scheme and contemporary design makes you feel like you’re living ahead of time whilst you peek through the windows into the timeless view of Hollywood Hills.

This hotel is a #MUSTTRY if you’re ever visiting Los Angeles. It is prime to all areas such as Hollywood, DTLA, Beverly Hills, Westwood and smack dab in the core of KOREATOWN.

They offer bicycle rentals to whiz through LA traffic and it even has a horn for unconscientious drivers!

The Line Hotel offers many adventures in one place. The lobby is fun to people watch, trust me, you’ll never feel like you’re in Koreatown. The bar and cafe is perfect for #happyhour and snacks. (Don’t forget to try the mac & cheese pizza!) The Pot restaurant is nothing like you’ve experienced. The food and ambiance is out of this world. The pool is for relaxing, ping pong for athletes and foosball for reminiscing college years. (Unless you’re still in college, then you’re home away from home.) And of course the Commissary. I have yet to try but I saw the beauty from 10 feet away and I swear I heard birds singing and saw them dancing like the Disney movie Cinderella. It looks whimsical and I hear the food is worth overeating!

Again, I thank Roy Choi, team at The Line Hotel, Bonnie Tsang, Kelsey Kahn, Moon Canyon and my fiancé for such an unforgettable day!

Wedding Shoot @TheLineHotel

Thank you Bonnie Tsang, Jillian, Alice, Kelsey, Moon Canyon and The Line Hotel for having Bear Baby and I be your models for your wedding shoot!

We were chosen amongst hundreds of applications as the model “engaged couple” having their wedding at The Line Hotel.

I had an early am and didn’t get to make it to the office, but this was so worth the unpaid day!

The beautiful JLM dress. On the post it said it was going to be Monique Lhuillier but I really didn’t care! I was most excited about the opportunity and the amazing photos we would have after the fact!

 There were two dresses selected but the photographer chose the one that she thought best suited me.

The view from suite 1122 was amazing! Overlooking north KTOWN and into the Hollywood Hills all the way to the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory.

The dress was huge but the clips worked wonders!

 The rooms inside the hotel were beautiful. The one time I ever stayed was when I was in middle school (I think) and my mom got me a room so I could meet the KPOP stars staying in the hotel. I of course got to meet them and was starstruck and in love for a long time.

The beautiful vintage style engagement ring and wedding band. It was pear, as if I was meant to have a pear shaped ring… 😛

#Selfie in the dress. That fire emergency exit sign was a bit irritating. :/

I had to improvise! 🙂

Then, the day ended and I was sad.

I had to eat something to feel better. So I grabbed a macaroni and cheese pizza from the lobby cafe.

Editorial photos will be published once they’re ready. These were taken from my iPhone 4s & Bear Baby’s iPhone 5.

Here is Bear Baby looking dapper on the bicycle!
