Los Angeles Shopping Districts

It’s already been a couple of months since I returned from Los Angeles, USA and I’m greatly missing the sunny city. Aside from it being bitterly cold in Melbourne these past few weeks, it’s not just the weather that I love about LA. I’ve already shared with you my accommodation and dining experiences but I think I’ve saved the best for last …. shopping!

I’m going to share with you the shopping hot spots I always visit when I’m in the City of Angels.  Continue Reading

Grafton on Sunset Hotel

The first part of my recent trip to the USA was spent in Dallas, Texas for a conference, which was great but entirely work. I wanted to get away for some me time afterwards so I booked an extra week in Los Angeles for a little shopping and to visit some friends. My budget was limited but I wanted to stay in the fabulous neighbourhood of West Hollywood. I decided to try somewhere new on this trip so I booked in at Grafton Hotel on Sunset after a recommendation from some travel industry people.

I spent 6 nights, 7 days at Grafton on Sunset and I’m happy to now share with you my review.  Continue Reading

VeggieGrill USA Food

Discovering delicious food has to be one of the greatest joys in life. It’s a common misconception that vegans mustn’t like eating, or that we don’t care if the food tastes good ….. WRONG. I care. I love food, I love the act of eating and I love exploring restaurants and eateries. My favourite time to do it is while travelling, so you can imagine what was high on my priority list during a recent visit to West Hollywood, USA.

Los Angeles is one of the world’s holy lands for vegans, and West Hollywood (the cool kids call it WeHo) is even more so a mecca. Any food you can imagine is available vegan in WeHo. There are so many great eateries dedicated to vegetarian and vegan food but you’d never know it just by looking at them. They aren’t in your face and they barely mention the word “vegan” (if at all). Other eateries are still super-vegan-friendly and have something fantastic on the menu.

Today I’m sharing with you the places that kept me full during my stay. Bookmark this list so if you find yourself in Los Angeles you know where to find some great eats. Continue Reading

Kimberly Nissen Radio Show Guest Host LA Talk Live

Did you catch me on Alayna’s Beauty Talk or Indian Tylers’s Beyond The Vanity? I was a special guest on both radio shows today at LA Talk Live. I talked about lots of beauty products, health products and a heap of tips to get you looking and feeling your best.

If you didn’t catch me live because you can still watch the live stream of the full shows on their website. Visit Alayna’s Beauty Talk and Indian Tyler’s Beyond The Vanity to see what we got up to. Live tweeting also took place but we talked about so many great products that you may have missed a few. To help you out, I’m going to list the USA stockists (or stockists that ship to you) for all the great products and brands I spoke about today. We didn’t get to speak about all my favourite Australian brands so I have thrown in a bunch of others I recommend as well.  Continue Reading
