World of Fruit

I'm back with another pop-up experience! Earlier this month, Ian and I went to World of Fruit, located off Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. World of Fruit is obviously, all about fruit. There are eight different rooms, each highlighting on different fruits such as bananas, grapes, watermelon, and even dragon fruit.

We came on a Saturday afternoon, and it was surprisingly not crowded. If you're lucky, you'll be able to find parking along the street too.

This pop-up was a little different for me because there is a tour guide that follows you and your group. We did not move onto other rooms until our entire group was ready, and in our case it was only one other couple. I personally would prefer to walk through on my own, however, I think a huge plus of this idea is that they also served as the photographer for your group! In an ideal situation, I would be able to walk through on my own and photographers would be stationed in each room.

My favorite part of the experience is all the treats they hand out throughout the pop-up! We got berries, watermelon popsicles, Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask samples, mini acai bowls, and exotic fruit samples. Everything was delicious and I felt like these mini surprises made it more worth the money.


TIPS IF YOU'RE PLANNING ON VISITING:

  • Go during happy hour which is everyday from 3-6 pm. Tickets are $25 instead of $29. (I also noticed that they lowered their pricing. When I booked, happy hour was $28 and general admission was $30 something.)

  • Frequently check their IG for any promotions. They gave out free tickets for the 4th of July and I also took advantage of a 25% off promo code!

Overall, I definitely enjoyed my experience here and I would recommend this pop up. I LOVE the fact that there were treats to redeem and that it was not crowded here at all.

LA From A New Perspective

Let me tell y’all about one of the best dates my boyfriend has ever planned for us.

We started off the day right by eating at Nobu Malibu. This was not our first Nobu experience, as our first time was at Newport Beach. However, Nobu in Malibu was something else. You can read all about that here.

After this, I took a fat nap on our way to the next destination. When I woke up, he let me know it was time for our surprise. An OPEN DOOR HELICOPTER TOUR OF LOS ANGELES. My immediate reaction was more shock, but when we drove by the airport and I saw the planes I literally screamed out of excitement. Our pilots were shook that we were doing our first helicopter ride with open doors.

LET’S JUMP TO THE GOOD PART. We were seated in a tiny helicopter by Lite Flight Helicopters in Van Nuys. It was smaller than I envisioned it would be! Lift off was not bad at all, and nothing like taking off in an airplane, the only experience I could compare it to. The wind got me though, it’s so INTENSE it was almost painful at times HAHA. On the tour we made stops at Dodger Stadium, the Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory, Downtown LA, Staples Center, and the Santa Monica Pier.

My favorite part was the Santa Monica Pier! We saw DOLPHINS and it was so surprising how close they were to the shore.

Was it worth it? Yes. If you didn't know, both Ian and I were born in LA. It was a completely new experience to see our hometowns from a different perspective. I would especially recommend doing something like this on a vacation, if not in your hometown.
