Los Angeles: Mini Guide
By Cup of Jo
"Last fall, I wrote our personal Guide to NYC. But a few readers have also asked about our thoughts about LA, where we go every Christmas to visit Alex’s family. We LOVE LA–and the sunny skies, taco trucks and dudes on skateboards. So, even though we’re far from experts, I figured I’d share our favorite places in the city, and most of all I’d love to hear yours…"

L.A. in Three Days: A Los Angeles Guide
By Neon Blonde
"Los Angeles has been one of those places I've been begging to go to. The whole California lifestyle seems right up my alley: laid-back, filled with sunshine, and hidden gems found around every corner. All of my expectations of L.A. - albeit mostly from shows like The Hills and Real Housewives - are true. People truly are so happy there and everything just feels like a breath of fresh air.

Where to Eat in Los Angeles
"It’s impossible to describe how much I love food and how much I look forward to and appreciate each meal. It’s a moment of peace, of pleasure. A moment where you connect with people you love around a meal that’s going to give you energy for the whole day. I also feel so grateful for every bite I take, knowing that it’s a wonderful luxury to have access to such big diversity and having the chance to actually sit and enjoy it. I cherish and pay attention to each thing that goes in my body and meticulously pick out the restaurants for our lists as I not only look for the best in terms of quality, service and choice but also for places that will not only make me feel like I’ve eaten enough, I look for places that have healthy picks with dishes that will actually nourish my body with proteins, fibers, vitamins and so on. Not only the ones that “look” good."
