LA Hot Spots I Love

October 9, 2013

Although I’ve only lived in Los Angeles a year and a half, I have definitely found my favorite spots to eat, drink, shop and heck, take pictures. Today I'm narrowing down three favorite spots to visit in LA.

I am lucky to live in such a gorgeous environment. There’s always something to do in LA. You know what they say… we’re the one place you can snow ski and surf the beach waves all in the same day. It’s pretty impressive if you ask me. Let’s just say I’m never bored. If you’re ever in Los Angeles, you have to check out my three favorite hot spots: The Grove & Farmers Market, Joan’s On Third, and Kate Spade Saturday.

I live dangerously close to fabulous shopping in Los Angeles. It’s a blessing and a curse for obvious reasons. One of my favorite places to shop and spot a celebrity or two is The Grove and Farmers Market. This outdoor oasis is a perfect slice of California as it showcases beautiful fashion as well as atmosphere. The Farmers Market is my favorite part! The best candy, macaroons, tacos and even Chinese food can be found (and homemade fresh) here—and it’s the cutest location ever.

Third Street is a hot spot for shopping. The sweetest jewelry stores, bakeries and local boutiques adorn the happening street. I was so excited when Kate Spade opened their new affordable Kate Spade Saturday store in LA. Not only is the décor fantastic and vibrant, the clothes and atmosphere are to die for! Definitely be on celebrity watch in this area, you’ll be star struck.

While you’re in the West Hollywood area, grab breakfast or lunch at Joan’s On Third. I’m no foodie, but this place is so cute I could just eat the whole thing. Literally. Joan’s has the most gorgeous baked goods and gourmet food to sit and eat or take home and bake. 

Honey by Marc Jacobs is a sunny delicious floral – energetic and alluring, with a sparkling, golden touch. The perfect mix of brightness and warmth. The fragrance energizes with the freshness of green pear brightened with a splash of fruity punch and juicy mandarin. At the heart of the fragrance is orange blossom, a note of sparkling femininity that mingles with nectars of honeysuckle and peach. Honey, vanilla, and smooth woods dry down to a warm, golden base.

  7. I need to check out Joan's on Third! Never heard of it! Sometimes it is hard to venture out of the west side, but I will definitely make more of an effort!


  8. Another great spot on Third that I have been going to for years is El Carmen. Totally worth the drive from San Diego after a show/concert for a late night bite.
