LA Woman: The Los Angeles Spotify Mix

Someone recently asked me why I love Los Angeles and I was immediately flooded with a thousand reasons as to why.

I recited them like a laundry list — a beaming smile spread across my face the entire time. I love the carefree spirit that resides in LA residents and how the city is full of dreamers. I love how the sun shines through the windows to wake me up in the morning. I love how the tall palm trees line the streets. I love the soft orange and pink sunsets and the warm Santa Ana winds in the evening. I love riding my bike, barefoot, up and down the Venice boardwalk as the wind tangles my hair. I love when the beach gets too hot and you have no choice but to swim in the ocean to cool down. I love how my saltwater hair dries in the warm sun. I love the pool parties, the music shows, and late night tacos. Nothing beats cruising through the canyon with your windows rolled down, listening to music that matches the lifestyle of Los Angeles. From The Doors to The Beach Boys to Joni Mitchell, LA music is as dreamy, relaxed, and eclectic as the people who live there.
