We have family that live in LA, including our son, so it’s always the perfect excuse to take a quick weekend trip to visit. Usually our trips consist of shopping and eating, and this trip was no different. We spent the day wandering around Platform checking out the beautiful shops, creative spaces and of course that hip mural on the parking garage. I really wanted to go into the Boba Guys, but as you can see below, the line was crazy long. I guess everyone had the same idea as me. Although if you are looking for a bit more than boba tea, the restaurant Hayden is a great place to grab a glass of wine and some oysters.
We also spent some time walking around Abbot Kinney in Venice. I saw the coolest pink car parked on the street and had to take a picture of course. Lots of interesting places we came across including Roosterfish, a hip dive bar, a really cool coffee food truck and this incredible nest chair I saw in this store… who wouldn’t want to take a nap in that!
I also came across this incredible outdoor tented yoga studio, I would love to have one of those in the bay. Some other fun sights include …this really amazing wallpaper that looked like a Moroccan doorway; these adorable dogs just hanging out on the counter in a shop we went into; and these gorgeous large vases like the one I have at home.
I love discovering new things whenever we visit LA. Feel free to comment below and share some of you favorite spots, I’d love to know!
