That Time In California

On October 18, 2017 I traveled by plane for the first time by myself! I decided to go to California for I always wanted to visit, but never got the chance to go. This trip was intended to be a business-vacation trip for my brand, Sincerely Shans.

I made a video that you can watch below about how this trip not only gave me a new perspective on my brand, but also how it changed my life, providing me with much needed clarity regarding my purpose. As far as the extra details of some of the restaurants I enjoyed and places I went to, you can find that all listed below! Feel free to check out any of these places if you ever visit California, I highly recommend them all! 

Favorite Restaurants

  • Sweet Chicks  - Loveeee this place! They have them in NY, too!
  • Roscoes Chicken and Waffles - Similar to "Sweet Chicks" but with more options. I went there twice!
