After a mammoth 14 hour flight, my fiance and I arrived in LA yesterday - and what a day it was...

We met some locals who showed us around Beverly Hills before checking in to our fabulous hotel - the  Shangri-La, Santa Monica . We were greeted by a team of lovely staff, each more than happy to help with some of LA's must see's and do's, great for us out-of-towners.

I love interiors, so our art deco inspired room is simply amazing, what's more a peek out of one of the many windows which encompass our room, reveals the most spectacular views of the gorgeous Santa Monica beach, which is but a stones throw away from our hotel .

After an afternoon of shopping along 3rd Street Promenade (a great shopping precinct), we headed down to the Staples Centre to take in a truly LA experience - a basketball game - LA Lakers vs Indiana Pacers. With Jack Nicholson and Ryan Gossling in sight, we enjoyed an evening of fun and entertainment, not to mention a Lakers win.

Today we are off to Venice Beach, some more shopping, the Hollywood tonight for dinner.

New year, new adventure

Happy new year everybody!

Here are a few happy snaps from our new years eve celebration. We endured a scorching day of 41 degrees Celsius (105 degrees Fahrenheit), so this cotton dress, which i picked up from a designer sample sale for only $20, was perfect for the warm evening.

This week has been a bit manic for me, apart from all of the celebrations, my fiance and I have also been busy packing in preparation for our round the world holiday.

Our first stop will be the United States, arriving in Los Angeles on March 2. We are planning to stay in either Beverly Hills or Santa Monica, but can't decide? I would happily welcome any suggestions.

From LA, we have two months to visit the following US cities and sites - much of which we hope to do by car, so we'll have many more stops along the way:

San Diego
San Francisco
Las Vegas
Grand Canyon
New York

This will be our first time to the USA and I absolutely can't wait. My dear US friends, please feel free to share your suggestions on any must sees and do's. Or even better, if I stop by the city you live in, I'd love to catch up for a drink!

Finally a big thank you to Kaira from SWEET CALI4NIA who featured me as her blogger of the week - you can check out my interview here. I'm also working with a fabulous local designer at the moment, and I can't wait to share her gorgeous designs with you very soon. Be sure to stay tuned :)


P.S. Thank you for your lovely comments, I love your feedback and will be visiting each of you very soon.
