Places in this neighbourhood to check out and why?
“Definitely check out Muscle Beach, it’s where Arnold Schwarzenegger trained when he first came to LA. People from all over the world come here to watch each other work out. It’s incredibly entertaining!”
“Gjelina is also a must visit while you’re in Venice. Located on the iconic Abbott Kinney Boulevard, the restaurant is a celeb favourite and for good reason, the food is so tasty!”
What’s your favourite way to enjoy the outdoors in L.A. and why?
“On my most recent trip to LA I finally hiked Runyon Canyon. It’s the perfect place to take your dogs for an early morning walk. If you get there early enough you can also do a free yoga class on the grass. Be prepared for stunning views and sore legs!”
What’s your favourite place to eat in L.A. and why?
“LA is home to some of the most wonderful restaurants in the world many of which are really healthy. My favourite was this incredible Vegan Mexican restaurant called Gracias Madre. It had fabulous cocktails and a really cool vibe. I’m not a vegan, and honestly it was one of my favourite meals of my trip!”
What’s your favourite place to go out in L.A. and why?
“A few of my favourite haunts include Soho House, Eveleigh, No Vacancy and Davey Wayne’s. All have a really fun atmosphere where you can have a few drinks and enjoy your surroundings.”
What is your favourite place to shop in L.A. and why?
“I love shopping on Melrose. There a plenty of beautiful boutiques and Melrose place has my favourite coffee shop in LA. Its called Alfred’s and coming from an Aussie, its probably one of the best! You can also check out DASH the Kardashian store, which is across the street.
Another favourite is The Grove, it has all the high street labels and it has a lovely village feel to it.”
Where are the best places to celebrity spot?
“Celebrity spotting in L.A. is simply a waiting game, but you’re guaranteed to see them at these spots. Soho House is a favourite for celebs for its high vantage point and great food. I also love hitting up Nice Guy in West Hollywood. Everyone from Gigi Hadid to Mark Wahlberg has been spotted there. Also try hitting up one of the famous pool parties at The Hollywood Roosevelt.
If you want to spot a celeb in their natural habitat head to Soul Cycle, they have spots all around the city and it’s a celebrity favourite.”
