Los Angeles

Things we love:

Being in the sunshine state baby

Tacos. Everywhere. Being this close to the Mexican border has massive perks

Big sunglasses, big cars, big shops, big wallets…

It is totally acceptable to brunch at any time of the day

Venice beach. It’s like Camden high street on the coast line with rollerblades and body builders chucked in

California girls, they’re unforgettable

Things we wish we’d known:

You NEED a convertible. There is no alternative

Power walkers can be dangerous

You really can’t climb the Hollywood sign, no matter what they did in The OC

There are traffic lights on every. single. block.
