In Photos: This Is LA In The Eyes Of KC Concepcion
The City of Angels is currently playing host to this budding entrepreneur.
"LA. A place to know what you’re made of. A place to be free," KC Concepcion thoughtfully writes on her Instagram to set the mood for her Californian vacay.
The reflective tone is something that the 33-year-old has maintained throughout the trip which she's happily taken full advantage of as she enjoyed time with herself. Basking in the western hemisphere's summer sun, KC has explored everything from the cosmopolitan city's ritzy salons and most picturesque walks and corners while making sure to leave a spot on her itinerary for its most beloved dining and luxury destinations.
Skipping LA's more frequently visited spots, this businesswoman on the rise treated herself to visits to places like Juan Juan Salon (a Beverly Hills-based beauty favorite that caters to celebrities), Jon & Vinny's (a must-visit American-Italian joint that whips up sophisticated dishes that tickle taste buds), and The Peninsula Beverly Hills (an unmatched five-star property that's a venue to some of LA's most impressive events).
Other memorable experiences KC documented were a sweet surprise that greeted her in her Sunset Tower Hotel room that came in the form of a lush bouquet of red roses, as well as getting to sip on a classic aperol spritz and meet up with longtime pal KC Sukamto and other family friends over a dinner of Japanese fare in Santa Monica's Sushi Roku. In between her busy days were simply leisurely walks around the city that led her to discover some of its hidden gems: artworks spread across streets, secret pocket gardens that liven up an urban landscape, as well as impressive architecture that embodies LA's multi-faceted personality.
In the course of her personal holiday, KC also made a big announcement marking a big professional milestone: as the new and proud owner of jewelry line Avec Moi, she revealed that she has expanded her business internationally and will now be making deliveries to North America.
"My longstanding love for gems, gold & diamonds, mixed with my newfound passion for creating exclusive pieces with them... Here they are. ??? Delivering precious pieces from my first collection to jewelry lovers in North America... Thank you for being part of this fascinating journey ‘avec moi’ (‘with me’) ??????," she wrote.
Overall, KC looks like she's having an awesome time abroad getting to know the city where summer never truly ends. Whether she's abroad for a brief respite from her many responsbilities back in Manila or using the trip to find inspiration and motivation, the unmistakble glow about her certainly suggests that the trip is doing her a ton of good!
