Living in LA has its perks, among them sunshine nearly every day, proximity to the world’s most talented creators in art, music, and fashion, and access to the best street food in America.

This is clearly embellishment, because there’s no way you could do that drive in a single day.
Also, a note: unless you get paid by a brand, you’re not a model, you’re a girl with a phone.
Or just go through the In-N-Out drive-through and be done with it. In, like, an hour.
... and so does your gym.
