Do you remember how I mentioned that I am always tired, and foggy brained, and it is driving me nuts? I read a bunch on different herbs that may help the symptoms and the one that I kept popping up is Rhodiola Rosea. I thought I would give it a try just to see if it works, so I stopped by Wholefoods because I know they have all kinds of herbal supplements that I can’t find in other stores and picked some up (called Rhodiola Stress caps). I’m not sure if it’s just in my head but I actually think they work. I mean, it’s only been about 3 full days of taking them but so far so good.

This post’s request is for what to pack for Los Angeles. It is one of those destinations that everyone seems to want to go to at least once in their life. I’ve actually had several requests for there over the last year and a half, but this is the first time I have been able to complete a list for it (due to time constraints). While L.A. is temperate all year long, August is usually the hottest month (even then it cools down a lot at night except during heat waves). This packing list is not for summer, this is more for their fall, winter, and spring weather.

You’ll find a very casual, laid back vibe in fashion and can get away with more here than you can in many other American cities.   Denim, sandals, sneakers are pretty much staples so don’t worry about feeling underdressed. This is very much an anything goes city. I decided to stick with a casual yet cool vibe that will make you feel put together but not overdressed.

This request is for 10 days and I will put together 20-30 outfits for the next post to show you how many outfits you can get from these pieces.

Two questions: Have you ever been to L.A.? And have you ever taken Rhodiola (and did it work)?
