I recently returned from visiting my home towns of Los Angeles and Orange County. It was such a relaxing holiday since we stayed at my parents house and they helped mind the kids so we could sleep till noon and party all night - just kidding! But, I did have an amazing time! There was a heat wave in Cali and the style vibe there is so laid back. I wore shorts and T-shirts most days. It's crazy to think for us over here in Ireland, but there was no need for jeans, closed toe shoes or anything heavier than a cardigan at night - pure bliss!
I would like to share with you some of my favourite spots back home. . . I always spend loads of time in Laguna Beach, Malibu and Santa Monica. These are the cutest beach towns in my opinion. For food, I have to eat as much sushi as humanly possible (try Nobu in Malibu for a treat!). I always get a burger and fries from In-and-Out. This place is a Cali institution and the freshest, healthiest take out you will ever eat. I also have a penchant for authentic Mexican food and frozen yogurt. As for shopping, my favourite American stores are Nordstrom, Anthropology and J Crew. Check them out on line. What are your favourites to eat/ do/ shop while in SoCal? xo
