West Hollywood has always felt like a second home to me. From the first time I visited Los Angeles, it just felt familiar and like a good fit. I seem to never want to come back home and any chance I get to travel I tend to just go back. The beautiful weather, the sense of opportunity and great conversation with fellow dreamers has me hooked every single time. It has my heart and always will. I actually have a kind of crush on L.A if that’s possible.
Before I get cracking on that green card I thought I’d share some of my favourite restaurants and lounges to visit when I’m in the city. Mind you I’m all about ambience so get ready for some uber chic suggestions. Click any image to view more details.
