WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR WHEN YOU GO SHOPPING?

This is hard... It depends? I usually just go not for the intention to shop (unless it's the Barneys Wharehouse Sale) but just to see what's the latest and hopefully get inspired by something. And yes of course this does lead to shopping... haha

THE BEST SPOTS FOR SHOPPING IN YOUR CITY
Hmmm... The best spots for shopping... In LA I truly do not think you can just go to one spot and be good. L.A. is very spread out which means it's shopping spots are too. I like going to Vintage stores in Los Felix on Vermont, to Space 1520 on Cahuenga, to the Grove for Barneys Co op to the Santa Monica Promenade which has literally everything!

For Beauty salons and related places these are the places I love... Larchmont Beauty for all sorts of beauty products and my must-have vitamin E tinted lip moisturizer. For my mani and pedi's I go to Pampered Hand and Nails on Melrose where you get a complimentary 5 min neck rub and Boba's! Then when I want a spa day I go to Burke Williams, where you can spend as long as you want enjoying the steam rooms and sauna's before and after your massage.  


WHICH UNIQUE LOCAL FASHION BRANDS DO YOU FANCY? 
Let's see.... Local brands that I like are for Jewelry Vanessa Mooney and Luv AJ and for clothing. I'm in love with pretty much every piece from the fashion line Again.
 
DRINK & DINE IN STYLE
Well this one always depends what mood I'm in... If I want to be low key I will go to my favorite spot Jones on Santa Monica Blvd. It is dark and plays the best Rock 'n' Roll... They have great food and a bar section where you can just have a drink if you like. Since my style roots are more Rock 'n' Roll I always feel at home there. Now if I'm feeling like getting a bit dolled up then I would say Soho house or Chateau Marmont, where you can get away with wearing anything and no one will look twice. At these two places you will find me a bit more dressed up.
