Eddie and I always love going to Manhattan Beach - it's only a short drive from us but feels v different from the usual LA scene. A gorge, relaxed beach town with the most beautiful houses! Wanted to share a few pics we took on a stroll through the neighborhoods during golden hour xxRead More
Happy Friday! This week Eddie brought me to a gorgeous trail in Playa Vista he found, filled with beautiful little yellow daisies. It was such a pretty day and a very quiet trail - we even met a few animal friends while we there! Someone had wrote "CASH ME OUSSIDE" in black sharpie on the trail's railing, which made me LOL tbh. How bow dah!!!

A few things I love: shopping, food, string lights, and cacti. Platform in Culver City has them all. And I'm obsessed! This little outdoor shopping district is not only gorgeously designed, it also has really awesome merchants and pop up shops all located next to the Expo Line's Culver City station. I live right nearby so there's no need for me to jump on the metro, but for those coming from other parts of LA, I can imagine this is crazy convenient! Platform is also still really new, it only just opened last year and they are consistently adding new shops which is very exciting. They just confirmed recently that Reformation will be opening their second LA boutique here soon. Cannot WAIT! Keep reading for a few of my fave parts of this crazy cool shopping center.
Gimme dat coffee! Blue Bottle is popping up all over LA and I'm 100% down with it. One opened on Abbot Kinney in Venice and the one at Platform is very cool. Order your coffee/pastry then head back to the book shelf and grab a book to read- up the stairs is a cute sitting area filled with poufs and mini tables. Or bring your laptop and go to town! You could also sit outside and admire the amazing Floral Art shop next door.
INSIDER TIP: If you end up driving, park in the crazy cool structure with the Technicolor Drip mural by Jen Stark. Take the elevator all the way up to the top for awesome LA views, including the Downtown city skyline!
Sweetgreen just opened recently and although I haven't tried it yet, I've heard great things. I need to get on that ASAP!
Loqui is a must visit for delish Mexican food. I love their chicken tacos & chips/guac! Soooo yummy, can't get enough.
Check out The Cannibal for a good meal and drinks. My friends and I usually order a bunch of things for the table to share which is always a fun time. I love ordering that way because then I get to try a little of everything! Some fave drinks of mine include The Samitaur and the Honey Basil Sling. Perrrrrrfection.
And there you have it! I'd love to hear your fave parts of Platform if you check it out for yourself. Be sure to leave a comment and let me know! Hope you all have a great weekend xoxo
Shop the look:
I visit Buffalo Exchange pretty often. For those who don't know, Buffalo Exchange is this awesome store where you can buy, sell and trade new and recycled clothing. It's one of my fave places to shop because you never know what you're going to find - they add new pieces every day! I've found so many amazing, brand new designer clothes for a fraction of the original price, as well as cool vintage items. This Hazel fuzzy two toned coat was a recent lucky find - under $20 bucks and super cute! It's been pretty chilly in LA this week, so I wore it out to lunch with Eddie near where we live, in Culver City.
I love these Culver City neighborhoods. The tree lined streets are amazing - so much green!
We ate at Public School - delish burgers! I got a Pear Cider :P
I wasn't able to find the exact coat online, but I've linked a bunch of similar ones below, as well as some other fuzzy faves. Woot! Hope you all have a fab weekend!

It's no secret I'm obsessed with all the trees, plants, and flowers in Venice - every street you walk down there seems to be the most gorgeous greenery! Beautiful succulents, cool cacti, and big ol' palms everywhere you look. It really is heaven for me, love those jungle vibes. All these pics were taken on a walk down one tiny street on my way to Abbot Kinney Blvd, just to give you an idea of how much amazingness is jam packed into every inch of this town. Major plant goals!
