The Hollywood Hills: A Haven for You Hippies

House in the Hollywood Hills

Ahhhh, I love Hollywood. It feels so.. unlimited. You know what I mean? Everyone here wants to be something. Yeah, they may be fame-hungry & annoying, but at least they have a passion. I find that incredibly stimulating.

After my recent getaway to the Venice area (one of my FAVORITE spots in LA: Details here and here), my girl Abby and I retreated to the cleanliness & the cool-breeziness of the Hollywood Hills.

So, I’m in love with the cute little house we found in the Hollywood Hills area. Its a two bedroom, two bath, modern pad with an amazing view and a super-clean finishing. You can find it on Airbnb here.

I seriously CANNOT WAIT to move to the Los Angeles area next January. Y’all I mean, what could be better? California dreamin’ is a 20-something’s heaven.

Want to read more about my adventures in Hollywood? Here and Here are so more details on some of my favorite spots to hit around Los Angeles… and obviously there are many more to come!

Venice Beach, CA: Part II

I’m continuing to relish in the greatness that is Venice.

If you missed Part I of my Venice Trip: Check it out here!

On our second day here, we ate at the famous Venice Ale House.

Grilled Wild Alaskan Sandwich with avocado, sautéed onions & spinach, garlic aioli.

After that, we biked down to the Santa Monica pier, which took a total of 5 minutes. I didn’t realize it was so close. The art scene here is wonderful.

That night, we ate at a place called Gjelina. It was some of the best food I’ve ever had. We got the cheese plate, shrimp, and the butterscotch cream for dessert… it was incredible. Then, we took the short ride into hollywood to go a spot called Hooray Henry’s. Sidenote: Don’t buy bottle service in hollywood yourself.. they mark the prices up more than 500%… we learned the hard way.

On our third day in Vbeach, we ate breakfast at a place called Figtree’s Cafe that was steps away from our apartment.

Fruit Plate: They don’t skimp on fruit here

Then we spent the rest of the day sipping drinks by the pool at the W Hotel Westwood at a weekly event [every sunday] called Wet Sundays. They offer cabana and day bed rentals [we got the day bed], music, bottle service, food, and an on-site photographer. Overall, a great experience and a good opportunity to meet a ton of different kinds of people (<< Like, a new Italian friend that gave me one million tips for my soon-to-come Italy trip!)

Where am I off to next? Hollywood/ Beverly Hills, of course! Here, here, and here are details on my days spent chilling like a celebrity.

I’m even jealous of myself… possible? Idk.
