LAX // WITH MY MUM

I am super lucky to have a job where I can bring people away with me to see the world also, I mean me and mum have gone on lots of girly weekends to places she would never of gone if it wasn't for my job! Los Angeles being one of them.



Last week we went to LA for the weekend. As you all know I love LA, I love the weather and the people the food, the vibe everything. So I just had to share the experience with my mum.

I was on the late La flight which meant we didn't actually get to the hotel till quite late, luckily mum had upper class on the flight so course she was well rested and wanted to head straight out. We decided to just pop to the mall and grab a drink and wander around there, soon the jet lag hit us both hard and we went back to the hotel, which I then collapsed into bed and slept.

Obviously west coast time zone meant we was up super early, which was fine as we had a lot planned that day. We got a UBER to the Hilton Hotel LAX, which we then got onto a hop on hop off bus tour, which we used all day to get around LA, so much cheaper doing this otherwise you end up spending hundreds on UBER all day.

The first stop was Beverly Hills, we spent most the morning shopping on Rodeo drive, and walking down the Palm and had a look at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Which is very gorgeous and perfect for your insta pictures!

If you don't know what Rodeo Drive is, then watch the film Pretty Woman.. Its a high end very fancy street full of lots of nice expensive shops. Theres probably a lot more about it other than that, but that's all I know..

After spending a lot of time here pretending were Julia Roberts, we jumped back onto the bus and headed straight to Santa Monica pier... were we had some lunch and did more touristy sight seeing!

I didn't take too many photos down here because honestly.. I forgot! Best blogger award goes too..

But I did manage to take these two ones, one including my mum looking so cute by the Santa Monica sign, shes such a little tourist and loves coming away with me so much its too much, love her!

We went to holly wood, and saw the most beautiful sunset! The sky honestly was such a stunning pink colour the pictures don't even do it justice!!

Hollywood, well I mean Hollywood is Hollywood you have to see it to say you've been there done it, but It really isn't the most amazing place in the world. Its very tacky and dirty. Underwhelming is probably the best words to use. However you do need to see it if your visiting LA! Make sure to look out for your favorite star! But there is hundreds so you could be looking for a while...

So day one we went to Hollywood, Beverley Hills, Santa Monica, Melrose briefly, and everywhere else that I cant remember now. We did all the red and Yellow and Black route on the hop on hop off bus tour. I really really reccomed doing this if you want to see a lot of LA, it was the best way for us to get around!

The next morning, we got a UBER to melrose and had breakfast at my FAVE breakfast spot ever. Urth Caffe....Its a organic breakfast/lunch spot which does the most yummiest breakfast ever.
I always go for the same thing when Im there... poach di parm!

Make sure to put this on your list of places to eat in LA, you will not be disappointed! And its not even that expensive if im honest, so worth it even just for one of their smoothies.

Then we walked down Melrose Ave, instagram heaven! The amount of bloggers you can spot with their cameras taking the perfect instagram picture. Melrose is a very long street full of unique boutiques.. and famous for the street art all over the place!

After taking lots of pictures on Melrose we then visited the famous Farmers Market and The Grove. Which if your in LA anytime soon, can I add the topshop at The Grove has a Kylie Jenner Pop up Store opening!! Definitely go, I went to the Pop Up store in New York once, so worth it :)

Mum always wanted to see the Hollywood sign, so I made it my task to make sure we got the perfect view of the Hollywood sign up close. However we both were not prepared to hike up to the top. Ive done that twice before already... no need to do it again any time soon! It's not easy.

After spending most the day in central LA we got a uber back to the hotel to shop all afternoon in the local mall, mum spent no lie a good $300/$400 in bath and body works!!! Oh well, that's the house smelling amazing for a long time now.

We had such a lush time in LA, and did so much that I'm struggling to remember everything we did and everything we saw. But 2 nights in LA was enough time to get the main things done.

Thanks for reading x
