LA Guide: Brentwood

Hello blogosphere!!
First of all, I would like to start this first post of 2014 by wishing everybody a Happy New Year :)
Those who follow me on Instagram probably know that I have been in LA for the past month and I really tried to take some time to disconnect from the virtual world!
It was amazing to spend some time with my family and just enjoy the million things to do in the city of angels.
In the coming days I will post different LA guides, trying to give you my insider tips and avoid the most touristy ones; starting with this first one on the neighborhood of Brentwood; known to be one of the most affluent districts of LA as well as being home to many high profile celebs, this charming neighborhood is well worth the detour. 

3 things to do in Brentwood:

Drive around: Get lost in the many picturesque streets without missing a tour of La Mesa Drive, just on the border between Brentwood and Santa Monica, this street and its unusual canopy of rare Moreton Bay Fig trees is just like no other.

Shop: like a local at the Brentwood Country Mart

Dine: at the one and only Katsuya (my favorite of all branches around LA)

*Cozy house & tree swing*

*Turpan Store*
