My Week In Pictures #130

It is offical – I have returned! Some how I mustered up the courage to get back on a plane and return to wet and windy London. Leaving the beautiful sunshine of California behind was near on impossible, I may have spent the entire drive back to Bournemouth trying to conjour jour up a plan on how to get a job and move to LA (suggestions welcome). I had the most amazing holiday and the mixture of site seeing, shopping and relaxing was perfection. I have had a few questions about what LA is like, how we got around and things we did. If you would like me to do a post specifically about my LA/Newport trip then let me know =)


The above photo collage is a mixture of pictures of my trip away and a sneaky concert I had booked for when I got back. Highlights include finding REN at the Heathrow Terminal 5 Duty Free – pretty darn good discounts to bare in mind if you are heading that way anytime soon. Somehow we wangled is so that both the hotels in LA and Newport had a view looking out onto a shopping mall, but hey I wasn’t complaining! I managed to hunt down the only Jouer stock-list in California FYI it can be found at Nordstroms in Santa Monica. I miss already being able to ask for a Shirley Temple at restaurants and the fact that they come with free refills, utterly bliss. This holiday became a slight cupcake and cheesecake tour but there could be worse things in life! Once I returned and piled up everything I bought whilst away it was evident that I pretty much purchased an entire new makeup bag and skincare routine. As the only clothes a bought was a $17 top I thought I was allowed :P Retuning back to work was near on impossible but luckily at the weekend I had tickets to Chime for Change where Florance, JLo and epic Beyonce performed. With surprise guests from the like of Mary J Blige and Jay Z it was one great day out.

Hope you all had a brilliant week and I promise to stop banging on about my holiday now :P
