London goes to LA: A London girl’s guide to LA

Sleep, Sip ,Shop and Treat yourself to a London girl’s guide to LA

There’s something about LA that us Londoners love . From the Beckham’s to James Corden there’s no escaping the Brit Brigade. I popped over for the week to visit some of my favorite hot spots and creative director of LAPALME magazine Derek Warburton. Here we are below checking out the latest issue  over lunch at Petit Four on Sunset .

  

Sleep at The Mondrian hotel. Located in the heart of West Hollywood it boasts one of the best views of the sunset strip. Just look at this image from my bedroom window.

It’s also home to The Sky Bar founded by Randy Gerber husband to the gorgeous supermodel Cindy Crawford has long been a hot spot for the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Rod Stewart, Nicole Ritchie and Alessandra Ambrosio.

I based my self out of the Mondrian for all my meetings. There was also a heatwave in LA so I got to do most of them poolside. See below – this definitely beats my London meetings. Just another reason why LA is better.
