I called SoCal home for over 14 years… It wasn’t until moving to NYC that I really grew to appreciate Los Angeles. And of course now having a love affair with the weather after experiencing my first east coast winters.
I went to college on the West Coast and lived in Beverly Hills (adjacent), but found myself too focused on the negative things like the bumper to bumper traffic and superficial people, instead of focusing on all the amazing qualities the city has to offer.
I wanted to highlight one of my favorite neighborhoods of LA: West Hollywood. The sprawling hills, purple trees, cotton candy sunsets, oh and super chic restaurants, bars, and shopping. One minute you can be hiking Runyon Canyon the next grabbing cocktails at the new Edition rooftop bar or retail therapy in the Sunset Plaza.
