Just before I left LA, I had the absolute pleasure of catching up with good friend, and fellow Aussie blogger/photographer/ all round amazing chic, Chanelle Leslie. We always seem to meet coincidentally in new cities - you can check out our last collaboration here, shot in Sydney.

We kicked off the day with THE most delicious acai bowls from one of my favourite cafe's along Abbot Kinney, before strolling along Venice Beach, to soak up the last of LA's summer rays.

One of the best things about travel for me is catching up with friends, new and old, sharing new

experiences, and of course creating memories in new and exciting locations.

A great day spent - here is part one of our impromptu California shoot.
