Since you're already staying at Arrive, why not grab your morning brunch there too? For such a minimalist hotel, Arrive actually has quite a few dining options. With Customs Coffee, Reservoir, The Draughtsman, and Ice Cream Shop(pe), Arrive has gastronomically covered everything from coffee to breakfast to dessert and everything in between. Though we didn't get a chance to dine at their chic, laid-back gastropub, Draughtsman, we did enjoy brunch at their all-day eatery, Reservoir. Open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner, their menu is an amalgam of American fare with some global influences as well.Read More
Welcome to Palm Springs week on The Editorialist LA! While we love writing about all things LA, we have to recognize that Palm Springs has become an even more popular destination for young Angelenos in recent years. What was once a sleepy retirement community and quiet destination for family vacations, Palm Springs has blossomed in the last few years, welcoming new, boutique hotels, cool restaurants, and even beautiful bars. Of course, it's still a huge destination in April for festivals like Coachella, but more than that, it has become a bigger destination year round (or, when it's not deadly hot to visit) for those in-the-know. This growing popularity is why we've decided to dedicate an entire week to Palm Springs, providing you a comprehensive, in-depth guide for all the cool spots to visit, best places to eat, and where to stay!
First up: our in-depth review of new hot hotel, Arrive!Read More
To be totally honest, I've been feeling a bit uninspired by fashion of late. Maybe it's the faster moving consumption cycle, or the proliferation of certain trends that flood social media. Mostly, I think it comes down to the difficulty of finding clothing and concepts that really excite me. Shopping has brought out the Project Runway judge in me, critiquing everything I see, imagining how I'd redesign it or re-fit it for my body type. Which is why I was so excited when I came across Frilly; as soon as I started to see the name pop up on the Instagram accounts of influential fashion figures like Chriselle Lim, I knew I needed to know more. The LA-based company (woo!) is a hybrid contemporary fashion brand and tech start-up, offering beautiful, made-to-order clothing that diverts from fashion's current focus on throwaway pieces, mass production, and speedy production cycles. Instead of taking what they see on the runway or the street and just producing a similar, cookie-cutter version of it, they provide a platform filled with classic yet modern pieces that are fully customizable!

We all know how hard it is to keep New Year's Resolutions. But ever since joining Classpass around two years ago (how time flies!), I've found that getting myself to fitness classes is easier than ever. In fact, I've found so many classes I actually like, and even *gasp* look forward to going to! The classes below are undoubtedly the ones I take most frequently.Read More
The holidays are upon us, and we all know what that means...consuming endless amounts of calories before naming "detox" amongst our 2018 resolutions. Until then, we still have to eat, and since none of us can afford to use the little money left in our bank accounts after holiday shopping (and the few extra calories we've allotted ourselves for the month) towards one of LA's grandest meals, how about checking out some nice but low-key spots for a good lunch or dinner? Specifically, the 3 restaurants below all over unique experiences and nice-casual environments for their prospective neighborhoods, making them great spots for popping in to enjoy a relaxed meal.Read More
