Frederic Fekkai - After suffering from a few traumatic experiences with colorists around LA, I think I’ve finally found someone I can trust. Go to Begoña for color and Brianna for styling because they are geniuses.

Jinpachi - I love this tiny sushi spot but I didn’t really realize how good it was until I tried the Omakase. I think even my Japanese mother would approve!

Aventine - Just rustic enough without being too thematic, this restaurant has a twinkly back patio that feels so much further away from Hollywood Blvd. than it is. I think it’s my favorite new spot for drinks.

The Little Next Door - A magical little shady cafe on 3rd Street, it’s my favorite for iced coffee on summer days when it’s too hot to move.

Huntington Library, Art Gallery & Botanical Gardens - very time I come here is just an affirmation that I need to make the trip out to Pasadena more often. Go with someone it’s impossible to have a boring conversation with and spend the whole day roaming and Instagramming and smelling nice things.
