Honeymoon: First, Beverly Hills

After running away from Los Angeles a year and three months ago I never thought my first stop would be back to Beverly Hills as part of my honeymoon. There is a method to my madness. I figured that with the time change in Hawaii being 5 hours that stopping in LA to adjust mine and Aaron’s bodies to the 2 hour time change would help. Staying at the luxury Avalon Hotel and Beverly Hilton sure helps get over the jet lag. First tip: Hang out in LA for a few days to help with jet lag. 

But first…Beverly Hills

The first night of our honeymoon we stayed at the adorable Avalon Hotel, Beverly Hills. I’m going to let you in on a little secret about my new blog. The theme is 80’s Beverly Hills themed. The Avalon Hotel is just that. You are sure to fall in love with AV the moment you walk inside the sliding doors. Second tip: stay longer than one night and enjoy the pool.

If you stay at the Avalon Hotel make sure you have breakfast at the Vivian and get the green goddess juice. It’s amazing. Sit outside next to the pool and soak in the cool California air.

Day 2- Beverly Hilton Hotel + Sushi

I was honored to be asked to be a #BHstoryteller for Beverly Hilton Hotel. My travel roster is growing! The Beverly Hilton definitely spoiled me and Aaron. We were showered with champagne, desserts and the best cheese board ever. 

I’m obsessed with the 80’s baby blues, pepto pastel pink and leafy greens. The Beverly Hilton Hotel pool area sent my senses into overdrive. From the blue towels at the pool to the black and white striped awnings outlining the pool area, it felt like I stepped into a luxury 80’s, Beverly Hills world. The pool area was the perfect spot to rock out my “Beverly Hills” swimsuit from Forever 21. 

Oh, did I mention Ashley Streff was there to shoot my Beverly Hilton Hotel pool look? I was able to get Aaron to hop in a few shots with me out by the Beverly Hilton pool area.

The LA Times is running a Bachelor in Paradise piece and asked if they could shoot me for the article.  Aaron was there to see how my side of the world turns. Ashley asked  him what he thought about it all. He said he finds my behind the scenes pretty riveting. What comes out in press isn’t always what the real story is Aaron visited LA when he was 10 and has never been to Beverly Hills. I liked taking him around and showing him Bel-Air, The Hills and where all my favorite hang out and restaurant spots are at. For dinner we chose Sugarfish on Beverly. We both ordered the “No Roll” which is off menu. Sugarfish has the freshest sugar you can find.

After dinner: The Polo Lounge

The Polo Lounge is the place to be and be scene! Aaron wanted to go to a lounge bar. The first spot that popped into my mind was The Polo Lounge in the Beverly Hills Hotel. You’re sure to get your fix of interesting people to say the least. You may even catch a celerity or two. We saw Kevin O’leary from Shark Tank. Aaron loves that show. Tip three: Be entertained at The Polo Lounge. 

I have some other restaurant recommendations for those looking to make Beverly Hills as your honeymoon or just to visit. 

  • Urth Cafe 
  • Wally’s 
  • Catch 
  • Craig’s 
  • Malibu Fish
  • Nobu, Malibu 
  • Hillstone, Beverly Hills 
  • The Griddle 
  • Gratitude
  • Lawry’s 

It’s bitter sweet saying goodbye to Beverly Hills. Good news thought, we are off to Maui!
