Our trip to LA was a whirlwind, we only had four days to explore the city but we enjoyed the time we had.
After a super long journey, our first stop was the pool to grab a drink and relax in the Californian sun. The Mondrian’s pool area has a really chill vibe with great views over the city and a delicious cocktail menu. Whilst we were lounging there was a crew filming for a new show, very Hollywood!
We spent an afternoon in downtown LA and headed to Skyspace whilst we were in the area. It’s a really fun spot with a lot of interactive installations inside and a glass slide down the outside of the building! I had to try it out, but it wasn’t as scary as you might imagine because you’re at the bottom in no time.
The real highlight is, of course, the view – it would be easy to spend all day on the terrace looking over the city.
If you’re looking for the most instagramable places in LA, head straight to Melrose Avenue. We stopped at the famous pink wall and ‘Made in LA’ before hitting up a sample sale at The Kooples.
Speaking of shopping, browsing on Rodeo drive is a must, there are so many amazing stores in Beverly Hills, it’s difficult to leave without an arm full of bags.
Thankfully, I brought my Antler luggage which is incredibly spacious for its size, not to mention stylish and excellent quality, plus it can definitely hold additional purchases from a shopping spree (or two!). I went with quite a tropical vibe for this trip, but I really wish I had brought along a few more jackets as the city did get chilly at night. Definitely something to consider when packing for LA – be sure your bag is big enough to bring layers!
I we had a really fun time in Los Angeles and I am looking forward to returning to see more of what the city has to offer.
