We spent some time with major babe and model/actor Noah Mills at his Venice bungalow. Not only is this boy easy on the eyes, but he also has an incredible sense of interior design, exceptional taste in food, and knows whats up when it comes to skincare. #GlowBoy Noah Mills has Venice life all figured out. When we stepped inside his beachy home, we have to admit we were very envious of his glowy set up. From weekly Pressed Juicery deliveries to daily surfing sessions, Noah is living that Cali dream.
Having just moved into his house, we were impressed that Noah had already furnished it to perfection. Minimal, yet super detail oriented-- he's got really great taste! We spent the morning walking around Venice, seeing his neighborhood spots and his local routine. We grabbed breakfast at his go-to spot GTA, which happens to be a favorite of ours as well.
Noah appreciates good skin products, and has a whole routine from Aesop. It just so happened that he was running low on his stash, so we went with him to the store to replenish his favorite products. We had so much fun hanging with Noah that we brought him along to our next appointment at our favorite bedding store, Parachute Home, where he stocked up on some luxurious bedding for his house. Whatever Noah is doing is working, so all you #glowboys out there might want to pay extra close attention :)

SNACK: Olives , hummus, mainly savory things. I don't have a huge sweet tooth.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SPOTS/RESTAURANTS TO EAT HEALTHY? Pretty fortunate on that level to live in Los angeles, I eat at Cafe Gratitude a lot. It's in Venice its super healthy (I think) and it fills me up. I also get sandwiches from Gjelina Take Away and a placed called Oscar's has amazing salmon fish tacos. I like real food as long as the quality of produce is good!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE INDULGENCE? I know I said I didn't have a sweet tooth but theres this Key Lime Pie at Gratitude I think I eat every time I go there
WHAT ARE YOU FAVORITE PLACES/RESTAURANTS TO INDULGE? Probably Peter Lugers in BK, I always break down a bit when traveling in the food department.

WHAT IS THE BEST DISH YOU CAN COOK/ YOUR FAVORITE RECIPE? Hmm cooking is not a strong point of mine. Probably a bowl of cereal with yogurt and raspberries
WHERE DO YOU GROCERY SHOP? Whole Foods
WHAT IS YOUR FITNESS REGIME? (HOW OFTEN & WHAT YOU DO) I stay really active especially when at home. But its not really a regimen, just exercise somehow everyday. I surf, play basketball, run the steps in Santa Monica and do yoga.
