Everything and everyone in LA is sun kissed, healthy, tanned and glowing. The sun shines so brightly the sky looks a washed out blue, the water sparkles silver and the palm trees are a black silhouette. The best thing to do if you ever find yourself there for a day is to put on a sun dress and your best smile and hire a vintage bike to ride along the beach. Alternatively, pair your most fabulous dress with some even more fabulous heels and a designer handbag for a shopping spree along Rodeo Drive.
In the few hours we were there en route to Australia, we checked out Venice Beach - a gritty, grungy home to body builders and beach markets and Santa Monica which had a slightly more refined and family friendly feel. We ended our day on Rodeo Drive, where I gazed longingly at shoes in YSL and Jimmy Choo while lovely husband C. marveled at the (super expensive) cars parked along the street. All in all, we had a fun few hours and look forward to going back to explore properly soon.
From Perth, with love xox
