As I sit here by the pool on my last day of my study week (not so much studying) vacation in LA, I have my first day of exploration & fun in LA, one of my fav cities. The shopping, the food, the people, the weather (LORD is it nice in comparison to Toronto right now!!!), and just the overall atmosphere in Cali is amazing.
I arrived here on Monday (today is Friday), in the late afternoon, so I didn’t have time to do everything I wanted, but it was still nice to get out and walk down Melrose, a shopping fav of mine. I have been to LA a few times before, but this is the first time staying at the SLS hotel in Beverly Hills – it’s so chic and laid back at the same time, I looooooove it!!!
And every time I pop onto Melrose, I have to go to Urth Caffé, the best little coffee shop in LA. I always get the chai boba slush drink; it’s a spicy & sweet chai bubble tea slushy, and it’s unreal. I recommend all to try it!!! Also, I of course missed my fav fashion blogger, Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad) probably by 1 hour – such a sad, sad moment 😦
Later I strolled down to the Balenciaga store, situated in an ultra cool and serene cactus-garden, something so odd to see. And later through Isabel Marant, with a large and pretty garden out front! I felt the greenery somehow fit really well with the edginess known of Balenciaga, and the casual-cool of Marant, both being out-of-the-box concept stores! Both were great backdrops for pics too 😉
Last but not least, to end this short but sweet day, my mom and I went to Nobu LA. I had been dying to go for years, and finally had the chance to try one of the Nobu spots! Unfortunately I have heard a million times that Nobu Malibu surpasses the one in LA, and I feel like this could be a true fact. Next time I am defs checking out the Malibu Nobu, and I’m sitting with a beach view!!!
I hope you enjoyed scrolling through my first day post in LA! Look forward to day 2, coming in the next few days!
