California Adventures

So my first trip of this summer was to California. I had to visit some family outside of LA. California was great, the food and shopping was awesome.  It's unlike any place I've ever visited before. The shops and food (Jamba Juice) they have out there are so different from what I have at home so it was a great change.

To start off the trip I met a NBA player at LAX who was also flying on the same plane as I was. I absolutely love watching basketball so it was great meeting him, even though he was clearly so much taller than me. 

While I was visiting my family I quickly went to the local Sprinkles cupcake shop. Their cupcakes were probably some of the best I have ever had. I personally got the peanut butter cup, vanilla & milk chocolate, and red velvet. My great aunt also took me to her country club which was a nice experience. 

My mom took me to Rodeo Drive to show me all of the shops, but everything started closing by the time we got there. Rodeo was beautifully kept and the shops of course were great. I got to eat at the original Cheesecake Factory which is my favorite restaurant.

My favorite place I visited while in California was definitely Santa Monica. I loved the beachy feel that it gave off as well as being classy. I spent the whole day shopping at the 3rd Street Promenade, so I wasn't able to go on the pier or beach unfortunately. 

Before going to Rodeo we stopped by Melrose.  I went to the DASH store and Marc Jacobs.  Thought the storefronts above were gorgeous so I snapped some pics. Wish I could actually go into MQueen and buy something. 

As a Keeping up with the Kardashians fan I of course drove past Kim's old house. It looked a little different and smaller than the show made it out to be.

I also went to the Grove shopping center in LA. I didn't like it as much as the other shopping areas I went to but it was still very nice. I forgot to take pictures while I was there, and I also forgot to take pictures at my new favorite restaurant, Umami Burger. They have the best burgers I've ever had, it was great. As soon as I get everything I bought in California in the mail I will post a little haul for you guys. :) 
Thanks for reading!
