hey guys...well I left LA. It was a decision I thought long and hard about but ultimately I decided it's what's best for me. Come hang today and let's talk why. I've lived in LA since I was 17 and now that I've been ready to buy a house I broadened my horizons to different places. (At the end of this vid I tell you where I moved) and I even bought my first house. I'm feeling so blessed and grateful and I'm so excited for this next chapter of life with you.

I completely agree that you’d think a whole one million dollar budget for a home gets you a mansion but in LA it gets you NOTHING. Here in Orange County you can get a decent family home for 750k, like that’s close to $5k a month for a simple home with no front yard or back yard! 🙄😔 I’m a new subscriber and man you are my favorite now! I’m so excited and happy for you guys, that peace you feel now comes through for sure!

Thank you for being so honest! We have so much in common! I lost friends for ridiculous reasons and I know I have a lot to offer as a friend but I can’t be hanging out with them 24/7 I have goals and aspirations and sometimes having friends who only wanna party isn’t good for your growth! Congrats on your new home! You may not have many friends in AZ yet but you have 900k friends on YT who get you! 😘

You didn’t mention the weather people live in LA , California overall for the weather .Arizona is too hot 20 degree hotter then LA if you are ok with that then that is cool , but a lot of people like my self prefer to live here for the nice weather 😊

This is so great. I am so happy for you. I used to live in Arizona for 18 years. Now moved to a complete different country. I am glad you like it in Scottsdale. 😊

It’s the industry not LA. Get out of downtown, WeHo, Beverly Hills, Hollywood hills. Then you’ll see real people who aren’t unemployed trying to become “famous.”

I didn't love it here in LA at first. But it eventually grew on me (moved here at 23, now 31). As long as you're able to keep yourself level-headed and keep the noise out, it's a blast here. Just find your solid group of friends and you're good. I'm a designer in the entertainment industry but I also like smaller town vibes sometimes. You get to know the areas to avoid the tourists. It's not for everyone though, which i understand.

“la is good for vacation but it’s not real life”. girl imagine how we LA natives feel about YALL coming out here to “make it” and gentrifying the f*ck out of our communities. unfortunately for some of us this IS real life. watching our friends/neighbors getting evicted or losing their homes is the sad reality because of you guys. everything she’s complaining about is BECAUSE of people like her moving out here ): i love la and i hope you spread this to other potential influencers so they can stop moving here.
zzz Hace 10 días
cynnxo i agree, if they can do it from far away then why not... I live in the greater la area so I see what you’re getting at
cynnxo Hace 10 días
zzz you right lol don’t get me wrong, it’s a place full of opportunities but ever since influencers became a thing, they just made it that much worse. About 80% or more of their job is to post on social media, they can do that from Iowa or wherever tf. no need to come out here unless you’re trying to get into hollywood/music/entertainment. if you’re gonna stick to sponsorships just do us ALL the favor and stay home. & it’s just kinda stupid how she’s a part of the problem and then she comes and complains about it on here 😂 it’s not LAs fault your in that crowd, she chose to do it. 🤷🏽‍♀️

People not born & raise come here usually to manifest that “famous/big screen/mansion/party” lifestyle either surrounding themselves with with “self absorbed”/toxic groups or can not get in with the “it” crowd and get a taste that it is all smoke & mirrors. With that being said, from a LA native, what she is saying is correct, that is not a normal life.People born and raised here not in the industry don’t go to “events” & not everyone is trying to be a celebrity, but if you hangout in touristy/gentrified areas then that is what you are going to get.

That being said LA is fucking amazing if people realize there is a party scene and real life. “Hollywood/show biz” is all FAKE. True Angelenos aren’t hanging out at Melrose, Art District, WeHo, Malibu sipping on a $15 cocktail every weekend, we aren’t running into a celebrities, and we aren’t social networking, I’ve never herd someone say that in real life. Befriend a true Angeleno and look at LA through our eyes and you will see the magic

I used to never be subscribed to influencers in LA because of that pretentiousness you spoke about, but watching this video and seeing how DTE you are and that you’re in a different place. I’m subscribing!

I just found your channel and subscribed and from the perspective of a 53 year old woman I have to say I am very proud of you and just the way you sound like you have grown. My 28 year old son lives in LA and we are from Virginia and I hope he comes to this realization and comes back home soon God bless you young lady.Sidenote,my son is not in the entertainment business,he is a very intelligent business man,but he does like the party scene.

Queen of leaving LA! I actually just uploaded a video about why I left LA and this is how I came across your video. I lived there for 7 years and 1000000% agree with everything you just said. I too feel so much better, my mental health is so much better and I feel free!

It's always weird for me when you say "I moved" or "I -whatever" when it's both you and Henny.. like he moved with you, you moved together, it's not only you

EVERYTHING YOU EXPLAINED ABOUT LA ARE MY EXACT THOUGHTS! Congrats on moving!!!! Wish you the best of luck.
