LA is slowly getting rid of polution thanks to the abundance of hybrid and electrical cars. And some local businesses have charging stations just walking distance away! The following places are fun but also super close to a charging station. You car gets "fueled" while you have fun. Multitasking at it's finest!
Funky and colorful Mexican decor and tamales that I wish were sold in stores. One of my favorite Westside Mexican joints!
Great Indian food with fresh vegetables specials that they buy specially from the Santa Monica market every Wednesday. Relaxing outdoor patio too!
Great beach side cocktail or brunch spot but also fabulous for events and birthdays. I sometimes wish I didn't live in LA so I'd have a reason to shack up here for the night!
I never expected to get a great blow out as this place IS also a clothing store, but apparently you can have it all. Great blow outs, clothes, and even the Santa Monica ocean breeze for no extra charge!
This place boasts some of the best Yoga teachers in LA that even taught a few classes in my own teacher training. They even dealt with my super UN-flexible muscles without judgement and offered perfect adjustments.
Awesome happy hour specials and one of the best quality sushi spots in Santa Monica that won't rape your wallet. Located lots of LA's best start up companies too so you can mingle with a entrepreneurial and techie crowd.
My top choice for sushi when I'm also craving an ocean breeze. Cool decor to match the eclectic menu too!
Has the latest trends of both formal dresses and casual day-to-day clothes. They also have a pretty awesome accessory section that's hard to ignore!
Great color and cut services with a super friendly staff that listens to all your coif concerns. It doesn't hurt that they're located minutes from the ocean so I can pickup cute boys after.
Fun music, intense workouts, but good for both novice and expert yogis. Totally doesn't hurt that Pinkberry is right downstairs to refuel me!
Classic Beverly Hills salon perfection hair without a snobby staff. Leave looking like a Pantene model.
Delicious food and a "not-so-pretentious" atmosphere for Beverly Hills. Great for a casual dinner with resorting to Applebee's.
Trimmed and toned my thighs just in time for short-short season! Even located right by whole foods so I can keep it that way!
The best blow-dry service in LA! Friendly, fast, and affordable. Sorry men, no blow jobs though.
Gorgeous French themed decor and great styling and blow dry services. They also offer you mimosas and champagne! Boozy blow outs are my new obsession!
Friendly staff, decent prices, tasty sandwiches and there's a blue plastic cow just chillin. What more could you want from a restaurant?
Hands, feet, and paws down my favorite lounge/bar in the LA area. Relaxing, cozy, and gorgeous. If only it wasn't so popular, the lines to get in are insane on weekends so I suggest going on a weekday so you'll get guaranteed entry.
My very favorite Santa Monica comfort food fix! Gluten free mac n cheese that I didn't even know was gluten free!!! Mind. Blown.
Awesome selection of figure-friendly food. They even have an impressive selection of gluten free items!
Gorgeous start-up hub with the perfect work environment for any start-up. They're also very accommodating for large events and big crowds without making it too cluttered. Walking distance from the beach doesn't hurt either!
