L.A Diary Part 2

 

Sharing a few more moments from my travels to L.A ~ For the last part of my trip I stayed at the most beautiful hotel, The Palihouse Santa Monica . It is is such a wonderful location, a few blocks from the beach, close to the shopping on Third Street Promenade & Montanta Avenue yet still in a quiet, residential area - so perfect! The grounds are beautiful (the backyard is a perfect spot for breakfast, I highly recommend the Avocado Toast & their coffee is unbelievable!) they offer cute bikes and the staff is super friendly and helpful. 

L.A is one of my favourite places to eat...and I tried to get to as many restaurants as I could while I was there! A few favourites -Gracias Madre has the best Mexican food (The guacamole and chips is a must have) and it is all 100% vegan, perfect if you are looking for a healthier option while you are traveling. It is in West Hollywood, so I popped in after an afternoon shopping on Melrose (I have to visit the Isabel Marant store every time I go, the grounds are just beautiful!) 

Beverly Hills is so much fun to wander around as well, and I was so excited to pop by Sprinkles  to try out their Cupcake ATM (The vanilla was my favourite) and to try their ice cream - It did not disappoint! I am a big fan of their red velvet waffle cone, so yummy! I also indulged in In-N-Out Burger, and oh my gosh - it was insane! I don't eat burgers often, but this one was perfect.

Traveling always leaves me feeling inspired & excited - the energy of L.A (not to mention the sunshine!) makes it a favourite destination and I know I will be heading back soon.

While I was in L.A I wore some of my favourite pieces that I shopped from the Air Miles Shops - including the Zimmermann Dress from Anthropologie...there are a ton of shops and until September 7th they are giving bonus Miles when you shop - always nice to get rewarded from the items that you love & shop anyways! I absolutely love collecting points because as such an avid traveller, it is such a treat when I can put my points towards a trip. Already dreaming about the next one...stay tuned!
