This post is ironic in a lot of ways. The last time I wore this jacket on T&T I blogged at the pink wall in LA; this post is in front of the pink walls of The Museum of Ice Cream. That also happened to be my last post in LA before I went home for the summer, which is exactly what this post is, too. These photos are also from The Museum of Ice Cream. What’s ironic about that? I’m lactose intolerant. Did I eat the ice cream anyway? Of course.
The Museum of Ice Cream is honestly unlike any museum I’ve ever been to. Not only are you encouraged to take pictures and post on social media, but the Museum of Ice Cream staff in each room is prepared to play photographer for you and your friends. The walls are bright and patterned (and the banana wallpaper is scratch and sniff!!!), there’s a sprinkle pool, and ice cream all throughout the museum. And you get ice cream and desserts all throughout the museum – starting with earl gray ice cream from McConnells, mint chip mochi, a pink pancake ice cream sandwich, a handful of gummy bears, and charcoal chocolate chip cookie dough on a cone. If you’re in LA anytime from now until August, you have to go to the Museum of Ice Cream. It’s an incredibly unique museum experience, and provides plenty of opportunities for blog pics and/or Instagram pics.
Tunes: Harry Styles’ album came out this week, so obvi I have to talk about it. It’s everything I thought it would be, and, at the same time, nothing I thought it would be. It’s definitely not the bubblegum pop stuff One Direction recorded; it’s much more versatile and unique. Each song has a little something funky about it, and I honestly had to listen to the album a few times to really like it, but overall it’s a wonderful album and it’s clear that Harry has spent a lot of time working on it. My favorites are by far “Sweet Creature”, “Two Ghosts”, “Carolina” and “From The Dining Table”. I have never been one to listen to rock music, so “Kiwi” and “Only Angel” are a little too intense for me, but are growing on me nonetheless. Now let’s hope that I can find tickets to his tour for a non-absurd amount of money!!!
