I Heart Santa Monica

I'm back from my fabulous trip to LA and will share my visit to Santa Monica with you

I think Santa Monica would have to be my favourite part of LA I visited

Maybe it has something to do with it being the home of Shabby Chic?!

Here are some photos from inside the store

The wonderful sales assistant in the store offered to take photos of us and it turned into a mini photo shoot!!

The ladies in Shabby Chic recommended we visit Bountiful in nearby Venice which I of course had heard of and into our car we jumped and punched the address into our GPS

I was only able to take some photos outside the store

I maybe went a little overboard on matchboxes!

I'm off to visit some blogs now and see what's been happening in your worlds whilst I've been gone!
