Birchbox Travel Guide: Los Angeles

Q: Best meal you had?

A: The "Crackerjack Shrimp" and the "Queen Chicken" at Genghis Cohenit's amazing New York-style Sichuan cuisine. They're all about trendy cocktails, live music, and Chinese food, so whats not to like?

Q: Best sweet treat?

A: Juice pops from Press Brothers Juicery in Hollywood. They're made from handcrafted, frozen, cold pressed juice, so it is seriously refreshing while also being super healthy! I had the Smash Popsicle, which is made from strawberries, Fuji apples, kiwis, limes, and agave.


Q: Cant-miss tourist spot?

A: Rodeo Drive. We had so much fun walking up and down the famous, two-mile long stretch of storesit's window shopping at its finest! The street lamps are literally chandeliers encased in is glamorous. We even had a celebrity sighting: Lisa Vanderpump (from Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) came over to pet my corgi, Maxine.

Q: Most Instagrammable spot?

A: The Runyon Canyon Park hike in the Hollywood Hills. The hike itself is quick but challenging. It took us a little over an hour including our multiple water breaks and stops for photo ops. The views are amazinga picture describes more than words can.


Q: Best local shop?

A: Wild Style in Fairfax. They embody classic-cool L.A. style with brands like Adidas Y-3, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna, and Yeezy. They carry some really flashy items, like an $8,000 fur trench coat that I had a lot of fun trying on.


Q: Overall thoughts on the city/location (vibe, style, weather, etc.)?

A: I LOVE L.A., especially during winter in NYC. The palm trees and sunsets were a much-needed reprieve from the cold and snow back home. The vibe is so relaxed and everyone is friendly and happy. How could you not be when its 75 degrees and sunny every day?
