VENICE . LOS ANGELES








































After a busy after noon in Palm Springs/Joshua Tree we headed to Los Angeles for the next two days.  We got to our super cute airbnb apartment in Venice beach around dinner time, we freshened up and headed out to a sushi dinner at Canal Club for my birthday dinner of course!  Since this was Joshs first time in California, after dinner we walked around Venice Beach for a little while and headed over to LACMA.  As many times as i've been in LA, I never been here before.  It was packed with so many people but still such a rad place for photos. I can say that this year was one of my best birthdays ever, crossing items off my bucket list!  The next day we woke up early and headed over to Abbot Kinney for some shopping and breakfast.  I highly recommend eating at Gjelina, def one of the most delicious places we have been, it was so good we even went back around 11pm for late dinner haha.  During the day we did the typical Venice beach routine, visiting the famous canals, walking Venice beach board walk, the Santa Monica pier and eating the bomb fish tacos! Obviously we did some shopping around Rodeo Dr, where I continually was quoting Pretty Woman! "Big mistake, HUGE, well I have to go shopping now!" We finished our day up at Griffith Observatory at sunset, and driving around Hollywood, these photos coming next!

  15. This was perfect for me, since I'm heading to LA in a few days, and I have tons of the same things planned! The canals look amazing, and LACMA <333 I'm planning to go in the daytime, but it looks amazing at night.
