Kayla Press was our ‘Ultimate LA Dream Experience’ Winner!
She won a 4 day-trip to Los Angeles where she got to watch the Ellen DeGeneres Show, explore LA with her flights and accommodation all included. We asked her to tell us what her trip was like. Take a look!
Looking back when I first opened up an email from BUCKiTDREAM stating that I was the finalist of the “Ultimate LA Dream Experience”, it still gives me goosebumps. I was selected out of 20,000 people for the opportunity to have a dream that became a reality. The best part is I got to share this experience with my partner in crime, my mom. We had the time of our lives! 
   We arrived at LAX airport on Wednesday and already knew what the first check off on our bucket list was going to be. The adventure to the one and only In-N-Out burger. Of course my first stop had to involve food! We are foodies and needed to see what the hype was all about. A simple fast food burger joint was mobbed with customers and I could see why. I was instantly drawn to the juicy animal style burger that created a line out the door.
       We then checked into the beautiful, boutique Mosaic Hotel. We had an enjoyable time sitting by their firepit taking in the atmosphere and sipping on some cocktails.  My mom and I were ready to have an early night because the next day was when we were going to truly cross off a dream of ours that has on been on our list for a very long time. That was to see the Ellen DeGeneres Show!! It was thanks to the Ellen DeGeneres Show that informed me about BUCKiTDREAM. I want to say a huge thanks to BUCKiTDREAM for giving us VIP tickets to be in the audience of a taping.
   What an experience of a life time. I don’t think we ever stopped smiling or dancing. The energy was like no other. Everyone was friendly and was truly there for the love of her show. I have never witnessed such positivity in one room. I’m still on a high from that day and pray to be apart of her show again. We got to watch musical performances from Ke$ha and Mackelmore. Also we got to see Jake Gyllenhaal talk about his new movie. I keep replaying that day over and over again.
At night we went to the Grove and walk around the farmers market. It was such a fun place to people watch and have some more delicious food!
   Friday was our last full day in sunshine Cali. What better way to spend it by seeing where all the glamour happens. A tour at Sony Pictures! We got to step inside sets where iconic movies and tv shows are filmed. My favorite part was seeing where Wizard of Oz was created. One of my mom’s favorite movies! Besides seeing some sets, we also got to step inside Stage 1. The world famous sound stage. The best of the best recorded Oscar winning scores in this studio! After our tour we headed to Universal Hollywood Studios. Another check off my bucket list. We went through Harry Potter world and enjoyed some rides. A great way to end an unforgettable trip.
     BUCKiTDREAM has given my mom and me the opportunity of a lifetime. Never stop dreaming because those dreams could turn into reality. Thank you BUCKiTDREAM for planning a beautiful, bonding trip with my mom and me. I keep smiling when looking through all my pictures.
I can’t wait to see where my next adventure will be!
