Amazing night with great food & great company. Redbird was the top choice for my sister Helen’s birthday dinner. Warm toasty vibes as you step in the restaurant with a cool modern twist. I personally love to “study the menu” , read & dissect every dish in my mind until I can practically memorize it. When the ladies and I go out for a birthday dinner, we go ALL OUT. Our wallets & our tummies have no limit. With a big group of girls who usually want to order everything off the menu its great to be able to order a variety of dishes  across the menu to”try” a piece of it all. Ordered doubles of many dishes so we can equally share amongst the group leaving the main to the porterhouse steak (insert mouth drool) one of the best steaks I ever had. Every dish was visually pleasing to the eye & packed with flavor. V V V recommend to try. thehalaway approved!

Walk with Nature


Update of my life 6.16.16 (so many 6’s ><)

Just got back from my Miami trip a shade darker, Miami was beautiful despite the tropical weather of hot + humid + rain . First for many memories, walking on soft white sand beaches, stepping into the Atlantic Ocean, strolling down Miami Beach, soaking in the Cuban influences of Espanola Way, eating authentic Cuban food, mesmerized by natural everglades, and the highlight of my trip was my 5-day cruise to Bahamas from the Port of Miami.

Superhero Me



If you’re a superhero strife lover like I am, you probably fantasized yourself as a superhero. You in that killer uniform, cool/catchy name, and possessing ultimate super powers. As youngling, I’ve had these creative thoughts ever since I watched my first Batman vs. Robin (George Clooney version). My super powers have upgraded as each superhero movie came out including only the good not the bad.




Living in DTLA (downtown LA) there are a large amount of skilled street arts in almost every corner. While visiting my best friends building I stumbled upon this masterpiece. Captain America Civil War was painted on the wall!! It was pure epic masterpiece! Not just one superhero but a whole squad of them. I was overcome with acute nostalgia of my superhero wishing days and shot this look.
