A few shots from my time spent in the LA sun. Highlights definitely include vintage shopping along Melrose and West Hollywood Boulevard, sun baking on water beds on a rooftop pool with a mojito in hand, finding my dream pink wigs (I may have bought two), meeting Rachel Bilson and also the beautiful Olivia from Lust for Life, Liz from Late Afternoon and Rachel from That's Chic. I can't forget the one afternoon we bought probably the only healthy dinner I had on my entire US trip from Whole Foods and walked up this hillside to watch a golden sunset over the Hollywood sign. Still deciding If I loved Wholefoods or Disneyland more. We also met up with Jules and Aimee again who I had already missed after our time in New York. A special thank you to Aimee and her boyfriend Wes for taking Luke and I along to the premiere of Rachel Bilson's new show Hart Of Dixie. I was a little overwhelmed to find out what they meant by premiere was really 12 bloggers, a few staff and Rachel Bilson standing around mingling on the set of her new show. It was amazing to see Universal Studios organize this event specifically for bloggers and I managed to keep calm for the majority of the time. If you're visiting LA be sure to visit American Vintage and Wasteland for some of the cheapest and craziest vintage I've ever seen. At one point I even found myself dressed up as a giant ketchup bottle and was seriously scheming ways to try and bring it home with me. Only in LA...
