If you follow me on my social platforms you'd of seen that whilst in LA Yanin and I got to visit the Nasty Gal HQ! It was a little quiet around that time as Coachella happened and so a few staff had taken the wise choice of booking some holiday to recover aha. We were shown around the offices and gifted a whole new outfit!

All items I chose were from their own brand (not including the shoes), and how amazing is that jacket! Quite a heavy piece as it's real suede and from all that fringing, it goes right across from one arm to the other. As it's quite an out there piece I kept the top and shorts very simple, but hey I had to choose a fluffy bag too!

The shoes, oh the shoes! I bought these in the Nasty Gal store down in Santa Monica. Back in the day I was obsessed with Jeffrey Campbell, I guess over the years they'd fallen off my radar, but they are back on for sure after seeing these beauties! Another style I'm lusting over, well two more pairs, these cut out boots and these buckle pair. Okay I may have just ordered the buckle pair, oppsy <3

Have you ever bought anything from Nasty Gal?

So this room hey! We luckily were able to stay with friends whilst being in LA, Natalie and Grace kindly opened up their home and let us stay in their lounge. As soon as I entered their place and saw those windows I just knew I had to get an outfit shot there! Such beautiful floor to ceiling windows wrapping right round their apartment meant the whole place had the most beautiful light. You could even see the Hollywood sign!

What better way to venture to a new city, having people from there help show you around, knowing all the good food places and getting to meet their friends as well.

I thought this outfit would work well in this space due to the white kimono, I imagined this would catch the light well and look all dreamy. This outfit would be great for upcoming festival season too, with shoes as well that is aha.

What are your outfit plans for festivals this year?

After coffee we ventured a short walk from Melrose and headed down a quiet street. A spontaneous shoot in the middle of the road, as you do! The dappled light shone through the trees, skimming the sequinned top to cast a rainbow of colours across my arms. As the top is quite a bold piece and well, doesn't have much to it, I went for a plane maxi skirt with a split down the leg, showing off nicely the buckled boots I wore too.

Now writing this post from the warmth of my bed back in England, I'm missing the heat of LA. Our lifestyle there was eating out at restaurants and cafes every day, catching Ubers everywhere and chilling with friends, whilst squeezing in some outfit shots and pictures for Instagram too of course.

This year has seen me travel to Florence, Dubai, LA and Paris so far and I don't think it will stop there. I hope to travel much more whilst I can especially as I'm meeting people who wish to travel too. Already Yanin and myself are talking of plans to go to Thailand. This year looks like the year of travel and I'm so excited!

 Oh hai Paul Smith's pink wall! When we rocked up to shoot here, others were just leaving and more were arriving to also shoot. Quite a popular place and I can see why! Love it's pop of colour, I think it compliments my hair and Miu Miu sunglasses well. 

So I finally have some designer sunglasses! I blame Yanin for these. We were browsing duty free at Heathrow's Terminal 3 and she wanted to get some new sunnies. I fell in love with them straight away! I've always wanted their classic shape ones like Hey Claire has but they don't quite suit me unfortunately. Seems I tend to suit the more round frames. They come in the prettiest dusty pink velvet hard case. I'm a sucker for pretty packaging!

In love with the Boohoo cropped tassel jacket, feels very Coachella! Unfortunately we didn't go, so many asked if we were when we said we were going to LA, maybe next year!

The dress I got from Choies in Autumn last year, finally I was able to wear it, warning though, it's a little sheer, so I wore shorts underneath.

I loved exploring Melrose, we browsed in so many amazing stores, it boasts a lot of amazing and pricy brands. I did buy some goodies from Nars and Nasty Gal whilst there. Excited to share all the things I got whilst in LA in upcoming hauls on my main channel and a vlog too on my second channel <3

Love these shots, can tell I had such a good time as even on Instagram there's lots of me smiling and clowning around. I'm like this all the time IRL, I do know though this doesn't always show online. I often give off chronic bitch face vibes aha. Makes such a difference when you're going round with someone else who understands social media and doesn't mind snapping pictures of you here there and everywhere!

So if you do not follow my social media, you may not know that I'm currently in LA! Yesterday we had a little impromptu shoot at the roof top pool in the beautiful evening sun. Here I was going for tropicana holiday vibes, completely in love with the cut of this American Apparel dress, beautifully form fitting, not too short and just look at that print!

Can you believe those sandals are Primark! Only £14 too, I think they look much more expensive due to their minimal classic looking design.

Have any of you been to LA? Any recommendations of things to do whilst I'm here?
