Malibu Wines + More of my Favorite Spots in LA

June 20, 2017 6 Comments

Hi guys! Last week that I went on the Malibu Wine Safari tour with MVMT. I had so much fun, I wanted to share!

Most of our pictures were with Stanley the Giraffe (cutest ever!), but the whole tour was so amazing, you guys have to go if you’re in the area or if you’re visiting. The drivers were so knowledgable about all the animals they have on the estate + we got to learn about the estate itself. The best part other than feeding and meeting the animals? The wine! Y’all know how much I love my Chardonnay 🙂 Even the wine had cute/clever names (like Kendrick Llama, haha!), and I can’t even begin to explain how beautifully everything is set up. There were so many picture opportunities that I’m glad I wore this super cute outfit from Misa. 😉 (Lauren and I fell in LOVE with this sweet horse!)

Some of My Favorite LA Places

Going to the Malibu Wine Tours made me think about other places in Los Angeles that I love to go to. I get a few emails every now and then about where to go when visiting from out of town, so here goes!

Parking is a pain to get here sometimes, but the desserts + food are delicious. One of my faves are the zucchini fries! The boxes of macarons they have are great souvenirs are gifts too. So good! (My favorite macaron flavor is lemon!)

This menu is filled with vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. The food is sooo yummy, you forget that it’s healthy, haha! Santa Monica is a definite place to visit too. I love walking around on third street promenade.

Love Springs LA for its healthy menu, beautiful interior and yoga studio. Yup – there’s  a yoga studio! Morning yoga + breakfast right next door is my kind of thing.

I really like coming to EPLP in the afternoon (around 5/6-ish) because it’s the perfect time to head out to their rooftop bar. It overlooks all the cute places in West Hollywood like Alfred Tea (another place you have to visit!) and Moon Juice.

If you visit any of these restaurants, let me know! Would love to hear your thoughts. If you have any other favorite places in LA, let me know in the comments. I’ll also do another post on my favorite Orange County places soon!

    I’ve been in LA my whole life! Some other really amazing restaurants on the west side are Katsuya in Brentwood (sushi), Italian Ice called Di Dio’s in Santa Monica, and the Brentwood Country Mart like Farmshop and Reddi Chick.
