LA began off shiny and early on Thursday morning. Too early really. I went on E Day by day Pop and wanted to be up by 3:30 am. Solely I slept by way of my alarm! Fortunately, I used to be woke up by my good friend, Tori, who’s been miraculously doing my hair and make-up for a while. It wasn’t one of the simplest ways to begin the day, however we made it work, and thankfully, every little thing went nicely on Day by day-Pop.

I made my peach shortcakes and had enjoyable with them! That stated, the early morning actually threw me off all day lengthy and I simply wasn’t myself. However I powered by way of a few conferences.

I then had drinks at The Tower Hotel, which I’d by no means been to earlier than. It’s a really stylish, historic, Hollywood-style, resort. A pleasant spot for drinks and dinner. After that, I headed again to my resort and was out for the evening.

Fortunately, I awakened on Friday morning feeling 1,000,000 occasions higher. Loopy what some sleep and an excellent morning routine can do to your day. It’s so necessary for me.

Friday was nice. I had a enjoyable photoshoot, then a bit of time earlier than drinks, plus dinner. So I labored a bit on as we speak’s put up earlier than heading again out. Then met with a good friend for drinks at Bar Covell and that was the evening.

Saturday, I had a brunch assembly at Croft, one other new-to-me LA spot. So good you guys. For those who’re ever in LA, attempt Croft for brunch. It’s a cute place on Melrose with nice gluten-free choices.
