Hi Friends, my name is Courtney Trop, and I have a personal style Blog called Always Judging. Nanushka asked me to show you guys five of my favorite spots in LA. I’ve been living here for almost 12 years now, so this was actually really hard surprisingly, because I realized there are actually so many amazing places in LA. Over the past month I really racked my brain on my favorites.

I’ve made a little list of all my favourite places to hang at in LA, from restaurants to museums to where I get my coffee every AM. This little video highlights my top five favourites, but I do frequent all of the below on the regular. Hope you guys enjoy this list that I poured my heart and soul into!  All my secrets are out there, not that they aren’t already living somewhere online. Here’s my official list! The first thing you should do upon arrival is pick up a Dossist pen, arouse and bliss are my favs! Enjoy my video on the best coast, the west coast!

 
 

Erewhon Market

Erewhon is literally my soulmate, the reason I wake up, Erewhon is life. Okay probably I’m being dramatic but you get me.  Erewhon is our local hang out spot. In LA we socialize at the Tonic bar instead of the other kind of bar. It’s a pretty much fare game here, like their tagline says: ‘If it’s here, it’s good for you.’

7660 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90036

Must try:

Probiotic smoothie (incredible life-changing creation that will heal your body, and soothe your soul)

Flourless chocolate brownie at the register

Buffalo Cauliflower at the hot bar

Shop Super Street

I usually do most of my shoppings in LA in vintage stores or at Shop Super Street which in my opinion has one of the best buys in LA. Perfect place to discover new contemporary brands and new designers. They also don’t get in a million of each piece so it makes it special when you score something.

458 South La Brea Ave, Los Angeles, CA

L&E Oyster bar

L&E has an amazing aps and natural wine selection and obviously their oysters are the bomb. There is a little patio on the top where you can sit and hang with your friends, it’s great!

1637 Silver Lake Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

Silver Lake Reservoir

We love being outside in Los Angeles. If you are on the East side, Silver Lake Reservoir is a pretty chill place to be, it’s nice to hang out or walk around. Summer at the reservoir is a really pretty time, it’s full of flowers.
