Back in November my bestie Josie came to stay. For some reason I only ended up sharing one blog post from her visit but had plenty of snaps and even some video footage from her trip, maybe I’ll do something with all the video too.. For nowI thought I’d put together a snapshot diary of what we got up to.
Josie was here for about 11 days, we had some nice and chilled out days lazing by the pool. Other days we headed further a field like this trip too Malibu.
One of my favourite days was our low key stroll down Abbot Kinney mooching in all the shops and then continuing onto Venice Beach and for a stroll around the canals. One of my favourite local places to visit.
We headed in land to Melrose Avenue for a shopping trip. Visiting the mecca that is Glossier and Reformation, oh so many beautiful things in both of them! While over that way we had to visit the notorious Paul Smith pink wall. Thankfully it was nice and quite with us managing to get some prefect insta shots.
We took Josie to the Grand Central Market this place is full of amazing food vendors, with all types of different food on offer. Plus they have this hella cool neon wall!! After this we headed to the Arts district for a wander around the street art. There are some cute independent stores to have a mooch in too.
To finish our day we headed up to the Griffith Observatory for a pre sunset hike and then a coffee, cookie and chats while watching the sunset over LA. It’s such a beautiful place to visit and I always love taking a trip up here, I mean the views alone are worth the trip. Plus its free to park at the bottom and just a short hike to the top. Plus the Observatory is free to look around and has lots of things to look at and learn.
