I am just loving my new travel series called “My Perfect Day”! I’ve been asking my blogging friends to share their perfect day in the city they live in and they have been giving me allll the inside scoop! Today, Kat Tanita of With Love From Kat is sharing her perfect day in Venica, CA. Hint: Don’t miss the expert tip on where to find the yummiest ice cream!
My Perfect Day: Venice, CA with Kat Tanita
My perfect day in Venice Beach, CA would start with sleeping in (since I am so not a morning person!). Followed by a meditation (which I do every morning!) and a big green juice out on my back patio with my dog Charlie.
I would hop in my car and head to The Now which is the cutest spa in Santa Monica – very bohemian – and get a 2 hour massage! Then I’d head home and order a big salad from one of my favorite spots in Venice: Great White, and watch Real Housewives of Orange Country (my guilty pleasure…)
I’d take Charlie for a walk along Abbot Kinney and pop into all of the cute boutiques and shops, then grab a matcha at Butcher’s Daughter. I’d pop over to one of my favorite Farmer’s Markets to pick up fresh veggies for the week and go on a little bike ride!
I’d head home and take a nap, then get ready to meet girlfriends for an early happy hour at Elephante; a beautiful new rooftop in Santa Monica. I’d get back home and Derek and I would make popcorn and watch a Netflix movie or show! We would also order my FAVORITE vegan ice cream from Kippy’s with hot fudge on top…yum!
Before bed, we’d go for a little stroll along the beach and then fall asleep by 10 pm. Relaxing, chill, and all of the things I love about LA!!!
