Get the Deets

I have two businesses that I fully own. Laura Lee Los Angeles is my cosmetics company that I started in 2016. I also own a curated clothing boutique called Nudie Patootie that I started in September 2020. 

“Every day is a new adventure with both businesses. They keep me busy yet so inspired.”

It’s a Passion

I love the creation of makeup, so I created Laura Lee Los Angeles. There is something so magical about the creative process and seeing an idea come to life. I really enjoy being an entrepreneur, but I felt a little limited since it’s a cosmetics company. So in 2020, I launched my curated boutique, Nudie Patootie, which has been so fun because I love fashion and creating different looks with our pieces.

I love Goodies Los Angeles because everything in the store is under $25, and I always find the cutest on-trend home decor items. You are guaranteed to find something adorable with each in-store visit. They have two locations: one at Atwater Village and a new one in Santa Monica!


Let’s Get a Drink

Mama Shelter is my favorite restaurant in LA because it’s located in the heart of Hollywood on the rooftop of a hotel that overlooks the entire city. They have huge lounge couches for people to relax and enjoy a cocktail, and they also have a large walk-up bar on the rooftop—it’s such a fun vibe at night! The food is organic, and my favorite thing to order is the Boujee Fries.

Shoppin’ for Others

The Gift Barn is a small boutique that curates gift boxes or baskets for almost any occasion. They make gift-giving fun and easy! The gift boxes are put together extremely well, and anytime I need to congratulate someone, this is the perfect place to curate a little present for them!

Catching Waves

The Surfrider Malibu is a quaint hotel with a natural, minimalistic vibe that sits right on PCH across the street from the ocean. Head up to the rooftop to dine, where you can take in dreamy views of the waves and watch the surfers do their thing. The food and service are absolutely divine!
