12 Aug Los Angeles Travel Diary
This Los Angeles travel diary shows you all about what I wore, what I ate, & where I stayed during the best birthday weekend ever! Two weeks ago I turned 29 years old and my husband decided that we had to celebrate big! He therefore surprised me with a birthday weekend in Los Angeles which city is only a 6 hours drive from San Francisco.
Los Angeles Travel Diary
The party started on Friday night, when we arrived at Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood. This hotel has a luxurious but relaxed atmosphere and is only a few steps away from the Sunset Strip, in the heart of this booming city in California. After a quick jump in the pool, we went for dinner at The Church Key and for drinks at Chateaux Marmont. The next day we visited Rodeo Drive and had reservations at the The Ivy for brunch. Afterwards we went to LACMA and drove through Beverly Hills as we enjoyed every second of driving under the palm trees. Around 2pm we felt like taking a little break and cooling down in the pool. Following this little leisure time we played the tourist on the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard. We heart that the Pagoda Bar had a beautiful view and served great cocktails, so of course we had to check it out. Afterwards we quickly went back to the hotel to change as we were heading out to STK for dinner and the Bel Air Hotel Bar for more drinks. When I woke up the next Sunday morning, we decided to go to Santa Monica, the perfect place to be on a sunny Sunday!
Oh my, this was the perfect party weekend and I would wish that I could do over every second of it. But unfortunately you only turn 29 once..! So this leaves me with my sweet memories of our trip to Los Angeles, which I happily share with you today as I sincerely hope that you can visit this City of Angels one day as well:
