As we usher in the month of June, we also say hello to brighter, sunnier, and more YOLO-filled days brought by summer. Soon enough we’ll feel the days go hotter, and tourists will once again start flocking the streets and beaches of LA before we know it.
In other news, since spring is now officially over, don't be surprised if it gets a bit harder to get your hands on specific flowers you so adored last season. (Yes, #sepanx on flowers is real.) But no worries, the month of June’s not going to disappoint with its drool-worthy summer flowers blooming beautifully like they’ve never before.
