Weekend in LA

Tuesday, 12 November 2019

California has been on my bucket list for ages, but it seemed like such a long flight when I was living in Europe - even from Toronto it took five hours. We went on a little pre-bday, girls weekend trip and spent four full days there. We got to see Malibu, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Venice Beach. It was a perfect long weekend away and I discovered some of my favorite restaurants to date!

Dress: Missguided

We stayed at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills and spent the first day by the pool. Later that day we went to Delilah for dinner (the food was okay but it's more of a lounge and hot spot for going out and people watching) and then went to Hyde for some clubbing.




Dress: Aritzia Bag: Chanel

The next day we were up bright and early for a hike. We hiked up to the Griffith Observatory for a great view of the Hollywood sign! Post-hike we made our way to Malibu for lunch at Nobu. Sitting right next to the Pacific was just out of this world - it was my favorite day of the trip for sure!




From there, we walked 10 minutes to Malibu Farm for a coffee and we watched a beautiful sunset on the pier. That night we had dinner at Ysabel - which really turns into a vibe as the night goes on!

The following day we went to Venice, and checked out Gjusta for breakfast (I would highly recommend, the food was great) and from there walked up Abbot Kinney for a little bit of shopping. There are a bunch of cute boutiques! We then walked out to the beach and boardwalk and rented scooters, and drove them all the way to Santa Monica Pier. We finished the afternoon with drinks at Elephante, and then went back to downtown LA for a yummy Italian dinner at Bestia.
