You work hard you deserve it.

How to Spend the Afternoon

There seems to be an endless amount of things to do in LA, so when you have an afternoon to plan for yourself, it can feel overwhelming. We say go with your heart on this one and choose whatever makes you happy that day. If you’re drawn to the water, head down Santa Monica. Walk along the beach or head to the pier. Touristy? Sure, but it’s great people watching and you’ll feel like a kid again with some cotton candy and a ride on the ferris wheel. Malibu is always beautiful. Walking around a museum transports us to a different time, and we forget we’re in LA until we walk out the door. If you’re in the mood for some pampering, there’s nothing like a good massage. You know LA has some good shopping too. The possibilities are endless here.

Cocktails Please

A yummy cocktail is the perfect way to end the day, and we love a good ambiance.

The Tasting Kitchen

LA is one of the best places for a staycation, and we are so happy to live here! After you’re well rested, grab a ticket to The Collective Conference and prepare for a full day of informative panels, inspiring keynotes, fireside chats, and influencer conversations featuring some of LA's top fashion, food, and travel influencers, brands, entrepreneurs, executives, PR and marketing professionals, and media. So much good stuff
