Here’s the list of our favorite independent Los Angeles blogs & websites for 2020, in alphabetical order!
A Girl in LA
A Girl in LA was founded by Kristie Woszczyna in 2016, so it’s still a relatively new blog. Don’t let it fool you though, the girls running it know what they’re doing! They write great tips on restaurants, shopping, and activities. We recommend checking out their bucket lists and date ideas categories!
HoopLA is the lifestyle blog of Whitney Eshleman, who founded it in 2010. She writes about a bunch of subjects such as events, art, food, and her favorite spots around Los Angeles! I’d definitely visit her blog if you’re looking for great seasonal events and exciting weekend tips.
Love & Loathing LA
Love & Loathing LA is one of those blogs that are just fun to look at! The design is beautiful and the layout is easy to navigate. The founder Caroline calls herself the ‘unofficial queen of Los Angeles’ and we can see why. She provides tips on anything from where to eat, where to drink, even how to dress to fit in with the stylish crowd of LA!
MomsLA is the Los Angeles blog to check out if you’re visiting with kids. Run by two LA-based mothers, it is filled with tips for family-friendly activities such as museums, parks, playgrounds, and even kid-friendly hikes! All categories are neatly organized and easy to navigate. We love their neighborhood tag for easily finding things to do in one area!
The LA Girl
The LA Girl is a beautiful blog to scroll through, with pretty pictures and interesting titles that really invite the reader to explore further. Founder Gwen and her team write about all kinds of interesting things you can do in LA, including new food and drink hotspots, events, and even tips for if you ever move to the city of Angels!
We Like L.A.
We Like L.A. is a newsletter specifically designed to document what it’s like to live in L.A. And let’s just agree that it’s doing a really good job in just that! It’s the perfect newsletter to follow for new and exciting things to do and see in Los Angeles. We really love how they try to be exclusive towards those who are on a budget!
