Hopped off the plane at LAX with an empty stomach and my cardigan.

What’s the first thing a young and hangry girl is supposed to do in Los Angeles? Throw your suitcase in the trunk and follow this list of must-sees in La La Land.
The Butcher’s Daughter
Disclaimer: This is a vegetarian restaurant, but health is on people’s minds and The Butcher’s Daughter gives the trend new meaning with their tasty dishes. The atmosphere is light, airy and oh-so-trendy. Get your cameras ready for an Instagram.
With locations in both West Hollywood and Venice, this french cuisine will leave you wanting more. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served throughout the day, and the food is mouth watering. If you are looking for a romantic date night with your beau, be sure to cozy up at a candlelight dinner here.
Come for the storefront wall art, but stay for the incredible merch. We all want that cool girl look, and Reservoir does not disappoint. With brands such as Opening Ceremony and Zimmerman, a dent will be made in your wallet.
Alfred Tea Room
If you love pink as much as I do, Alfred Tea Room will be your new favorite morning stop. The walls are pink and the loose leaf tea is delectable. You are bound to snap a shot of your drink at this chic establishment.
Looking to do something different than the typical tourist spots? Head to the up and coming Culver City for shopping and dining. The newly opened Reformation and Freda Salvador will have you eyeing the next additions to your wardrobe.
If modern art is your thing, The Broad is a must. With free admission and incredible art from artists like Basquiat, Warhol, and Koons, the long line is worth the wait.
Catch LA has become THE spot to visit this summer. A rooftop view in West Hollywood attracts the who’s who of LA. The food and drinks are mouth watering, but warning you will be paying a pretty penny to be scene at one of the most happening spots in West Hollywood.
The Rooftop at Hotel Erwin
Views overlooking the ocean, and chill vibes sum up the bumping rooftop at the Hotel Erwin in Venice. If you are more inclined to drink by the beach, I recommend stopping here for a nice happy hour or sun filled afternoon.
"Time to chill out with some Sweet Rose." Good choice, @dinela!

Sweet Rose Creamery
I could not complete this list without mentioning my go-to ice cream stop. A scoop of mint chip tastes as good as a fresh mint leaf—trust me this is addiction forming!
