There was something about the juxtaposition of this scene that drew me in. Just off camera all the work men were fixing up Melrose Avenue, while we see the fancy Vivienne Westwood store in the background. Plus the blue skies and palm trees are so LA!

Whilst is L.A. I took a stroll through the Venice canals, and really enjoyed the relaxed vibe of the neighbourhood. There were some super cute and some very quirky houses.

So you see a rusty old box on Abbot Kinney saying take a peek, what do you do? Obviously you take a peek!! Inside you will find a diorama of Main Street from around 1910. Back then it was apparently "the romantic CORAL CANAL, a scenic waterway with gondolas, gardens and, in the distance, where we now have Windward Circle, you find the wild RACE THROUGH THE CLOUDS ROLLER COASTER on the banks of the Lagoon."

Finally getting around to some of my L.A. pictures, this is from Abbot Kinney Boulevard. The super hip road full of quirky shopping and plenty of great coffee and restaurants. Aust. was a popup of all Aussie designers, so of course I had to stop in!

While I was in Portland, I had this amazing lemon poppy buttermilk doughnut at Blue Star Donuts. I rate it very highly, check out my other must do's in my micro guide on the blog (link in bio).

I recently visited Portland, Oregon to attend a blog conference, not only was that great fun but I had a little free time to explore the city. Check out my micro guide on the blog (link in bio).

Urban Light is an installation of 202 restored cast iron antique street lamps, by artist Chris Burden. These are on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art or LACMA as it is known. I'd love to have photographed them at night as they look rather lovely lit up. Don't you just want to swing around one ala Gene Kelly in Singin' in the Rain, or Ryan Gosling in La La Land!!

For my first stop over in L.A. I chose the Palihotel on Melrose. I'm really digging the quirky decor around this hotel, from the gorgeous cactus in the lobby that I want to steal, to the cute shower curtain! It was full of lovely little details that I appreciated.

Found this graffiti in New York earlier in the year, seems fitting for this summer bank holiday weekend since it's carnival time!

Nothing Hill has some of the prettiest pastel house lined streets around, so no surprise they have a lovely blue pub to match!

When in New York you have to eat some street food and this one was so delicious. I believe the Halal Guys are quite well known and are rated consistently well on Trip Advisor. I had the half chicken gyro, half falafel over rice combo!

One of my favourite corners of Central Park, the Alice in Wonderland statue is magnificent. When we visited in the late afternoon, it was also a lovely spot for a quick rest, and perfect for people watching as everyone stops for a quick photo.

Lovely townhouses on a tree-lined street in Brooklyn. Could anyone tell me if these are "brownstones" as I'm not sure, but they are pretty all the same!

Looking toward The Loeb Boathouse across the lake in Central Park. We wandered around the park in the early evening as the sun was dipping lower in the sky, and it was such a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

Egg waffles are the latest dessert craze in London and people were reportedly lining up for 2 hours to get one 😒 Happy to report back that in New York I only had to wait 15 minutes for this bad boy!! I ordered a little bit of everything in the toppings department and it was so delicious 😍

We decided to visit a distillery while in Tennessee. Jack Daniels is the most famous but is also a bit of a drive out of Nashville so we chose to visit one in the city. Glad we did too as it had a really interesting history, plus our tour guide was fun. We learned that to be called Tennessee Whiskey it must go through a maple charcoal filter before aging. The tour included tastings at the end, which sounds fun but I'm actually not a bourbon or whiskey drinker so for me it involved a lot of weird faces and sneaking most of it into the spittoon 😆

Our first Nashville stop was this cute roadside diner, famous for it's biscuits. They make up to 10,000 a day apparently!!! (our server gave us some to try and they were indeed nice)
