Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Insider Guide to LA

I’ve called Los Angeles home for four years, and while the year-round warm weather is certainly appealing, it’s not the only thing keeping me here! The city has so much to offer in terms of great food, shopping, and fitness, and I’m constantly discovering new hotspots and local hidden gems. From my favourite fish and chips joint to the best facial in town, here’s my guide to LA.
