Meet Leilani Dowding from Bournemouth who moved to LA 8 years ago to pursue anything rather than modeling

Was there a particular reason you chose LA ? I wanted to get out of England, for a fresh start. The weather is incredible, its English speaking, plus I had a lot of friends here already.
What one thing do you miss from home? Roast Dinners, especially Yorkshire pudding

What do you find the biggest difference is living here versus Bournemouth? Well aside from the sun, and being able to sit at the beach happily in February, there isn’t much difference for me as I have so many British friends here.  However, I think that when you aren’t around the fellow Brits the sense of humor and banter is the biggest difference.

Do you have a hidden gem in LA that you want to share with us? I love Vinoteque on Melrose.  Its wine and tapas and is delicious
I also LOVE Larchmont Village,  The locals know it, but its not somewhere that newbies often go to, everyone knows about Melrose, Roberston blvd and Rode…
