Destination: Los Angeles California

This post is about 4 months late but better late than never. Back in January I took my first trip to Los Angeles with 9 other girls to celebrate my friend Izzy's 22nd birthday. The trip was a crazy mix of adventures, good food, fashion and a good time. There were a couple of celebrity sightings, Mark Salling (Puck from Glee), Gerard Butler (I couldn't even speak to him, all I did was stare, I just couldn't!), Lil John, and Dave Navarro. I ran into Mark Salling at a little shop in Venice Beach. Which also happens to be my favorite spot of the entire trip. It was so bohemian and happy, full of free spirits and amazing sunsets. Santa Monica was also gorgeous and I totally recommend it! I saw Gerard Butler having sushi at Koi, which by the way has probably the best sushi I've ever had, their spicy tuna is killer, and their fruity Sake is amazing as well! Lil John was DJing at a club in Hollywood, we had VIP but it was so crazy packed I left. We saw Dave Navarro at a tiny local bar with live music, after eating at the best hole-in-the-wall authentic Mexican restaurant. I went to the usual tourist spots but if you do happen to go to LA, I highly recommend having dinner at Koi, a little on the pricey side but so worth it! Also you must must must have brunch at Toast Bakery Cafe, the decorations are so cute, their food is delicious (i had the smoked salmon platter and it was delicious) and right next to it there's an amazing boutique called Your Style Lounge with amazing picks and everything under $100. That street in general is great for shopping and brunch. A fun night spot is Harvard and Stone. Now this place is packed with hipsters, but it is something different and fun, they play jazz and it's just very home-y.
