I have just returned from a amazing 15 days in LA. Me and my friend Jack  flew out from Heathrow to LAX airport and arrived to beautiful sunshine. We had a bit of a rocky start as me being the silly gullible person I am got tricked into getting a taxi which ended up costing us $170 when it is only meant to cost around $40 “Oops” lesson learned.

Although feeling jet lagged we decided it was a must to head out on our first night, friends had recommended us to go to a really cool karaoke club called The blind drag. The recommendations lived up to its expectations as we had a blast of a night, meeting some great new friends who took us to some fantastic places throughout our trip. Just to add in I did have a sing song and think i nearly cleared out the whole club “haha”

After a couple of days exploring West Hollywood where we was staying we jumped in a uber and headed to Runyon Canyon. We was completely amazed by the stunning views looking out over Los Angeles and the beautiful houses that are set out in the hills. After heading down the canyon we headed to Hollywood Blvrd where I stumbled across my star.

After receiving a invitation to the International fashion film awards hosted by Cheryl Burke and George Kotsiopoulous I felt like royalty walking the red carpet being papped and also interviewed by tv stations.(This is something I could get used to) The night saw entertainment from Mary Wilson from The Supremes and Eden XO who was a X Factor contestant over in the US. Carmen Electra, Ian Bohen and Johnny Wujek where just some of the few celebrities that took to the stage and I had the honour of meeting. Drinks were held after the event at a beautiful restraint called The Nice Guy where I met model Eliza Cummings who has now become a close friend of mine.

After a crazy first few days I didn’t think anything could top the experience I had already had. Heading out with a friend Markus Molinari (as you do) we casually ended up at Madonna’s after party which she hosted because she had performed her world tour performance in LA that night. I can’t put into words what a amazing incredible awesome night this was.

Halloween is a crazy experience in LA as it is celebrated over a full week with parties being thrown left right and centre. Me and Jack was lucky enough to be invited to Eliza’s beautiful house party up in the hills with good company, good music and plenty of dancing.

A friend Robert offered to take us on a road trip to Venice beach where we walked along the famous Mr muscle beach then headed up to Santa Monica pier where we enjoyed a few cheeky cocktails while watching the sunset.

What a amazing night we had when we headed back to The Nice Guy to celebrate Kendall Jenner’s 20th birthday party with Justin Bieber, The Kardashians, Jaydon Smith, Nick Jonas, Drake and GiGiGorgeous to name just a few. Unfortunately as per most celebrity events no photos or videos can be shared but all I will say is it was a crazy night and one I will never forget.

So we have come to the last day of our breathtaking LA experience and what a last day it was. My friend from LA Jordy Tulleners took Me Jack to Pacific Palisades In Malibu to hike up to Eagles peak. Again the views where just out of this world. As we Just reached the top and was discussing how LA has had so little rainfall over the last couple of years, the heavens opened and we started to feel droplets of rain which quickly escalated into a thunder storm with hale stones the size of golf balls. As the trek down was so steep and the ground was so dry it lead to a scary but hilarious 40 minute journey back down to the car of which at many points Jack thought he was going to die. Thankfully we all reached the bottom safe, sound and drowned.
Hope you guys enjoy me sharing some of my highlights of my LA trip
