Best of Los Angeles: My Honey Spots


If you follow me on instagram you may have noticed some photos I’ve been posting with a little honeybee logo on them over the past few weeks. People were asking me questions, “whats the little bee?”, etc and now I can finally share the details! I partnered with Marc Jacobs on a project to support their fragrance Honey by Marc Jacobs. I had to pick some of my favorite places in my city (Los Angeles) to share with you guys with the hashtag #mjhoneyspots. So if you didn’t see them on instagram, here they are! And i’m adding a bunch more favorite spots at the bottom for those of you looking to visit Los Angeles soon!

Photo 1: Pacific Coast Highway 1= Arguably one of the most beautiful drives in the world- PCH aka Coast Highway aka Highway 1. It runs all along the coast from the top to bottom of California. If you’re coming to California and renting a car (which you have to, public transportation is relatively non-existent) you must do some of the drive!

Photo 2: LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art)- Home to one of the most notable monuments in Los Angeles- the lampposts, and it’s new art installation the Levitated Mass (pictured above), LACMA is not only inspirational and amazing but gorgeous for taking photos!

Photo 3: Mauro’s Cafe @ Fred Segal in West Hollywood- Located just several blocks from my house this is my go to favorite lunch spot. They have the best shrimp avocado salad and not to mention a little shopping at Fred Segal after never hurts.

Photo 4: The Boardwalk= Los Angeles County wouldn’t be complete without the beach. From Malibu to Manhattan Beach the ocean and boardwalk are breathtaking. Every Californian’s dream- to own a home on the boardwalk.

Photo 5: Park Ave in Beverly Hills= The sky high palm-tree lined streets of Beverly Hills are famous around the world and a great place to get that “I’ve been to LA” picture!

    I just visited LA for the first time about a month ago and loved it! I can’t wait to go back, there’s so much to see and do. And you’re right, the drive down Sunset strip, Pacific Coast Highway, and into Malibu are gorgeous. :-)

    you make me sooo miss LA :)

  15. I love this post because California is so close to my heart. I left 8 years ago and miss it every day. I love the PCH drive…I often would drive from Huntington Beach to Dana Point and back just to clear my head and watch a beautiful sunset…I also made the drive from HB to Santa Barbara…if the time of day is right, the sky reflecting on the ocean is so gorgeous. I envy Southern Californians!

  16. Thanks for all the cool spots, can’t wait to check them out next time I visit LA

    With Love,
