    Luxury shopping is both exciting and glamorous but it can also be very daunting. Maybe it is the high price tag or how long you have been saving for this purchase or even the whole shopping experience that makes it intimidating. Don't worry, it does not have to be this way. This is your guide to helping you make the best choices for your luxury shopping and get the best deal for your dream items. Do your research: looking at pictures online of that particular item and how other people are styling it, will help you have a better idea of how it could fit in your wardrobe. I personally really like looking at youtube review videos and hear about other people's opinion on it. Blogs like the Purse Forum are also a great source of information and a great place to engage with others fellow luxury bag owners. Try it in store: even if you decide to buy it online, I would always suggest trying it in person. You can get a clear idea of how it looks on your figure and how it compliments your style. For example if  you are buying a bag, you might realise that the one you love is way too big or small for your frame. It also allows you to try different textures

    FROM LA TO SAN FRANCISCO: Make sure to bring food: San Francisco is a long way away from LA and there might not be amazing food all along the way especially as soon as you get into Big Sur as it is pretty desertic. Have lunch by the ocean: it is the perks of driving along the ocean. Stretch your legs, breath some ocean air and nap on the beach for 30 min before hitting the road again. Enjoy Big Sur: as soon as you are in Big Sur there is so many beautiful views to see so take your time to admire and take pictures. Look for signs indicating view points along the way. There is also signs indicating the sea elephants that you can watch sleep on the beach. We were really lucky and even got to see a lot of whales swimming in the distance...

    If you find yourself in Malibu for 24 hours and you are wondering how to pack all that Malibu has to offer in a day, you should keep on reading. During the day: Transport: as in pretty much all of California, there is no public transport so I would suggest renting a car to get around as quick and as inexpensive possible. We rented a convertible Ford Mustang which we found was a very popular car to rent as we bumped into so many of them. It was great to ride along the coastline of Malibu with the top down and less expensive than taking a taxi all the time. Hotel: we checked in at The Surfrider Malibu hotel which is a cute boutique Hotel right on the highway along the coastline which was great as it was easy to get in and out. The hotel only has a few rooms and has the surfer, Malibu style which we loved. They had overnight parking which was not free but not too expensive. In addition, there is a nice rooftop terrace overlooking the ocean. Lunch: fortunately across the road from our hotel was one of the most famous restaurants for lunch in Malibu called Malibu Farm. It is a very cute relaxed restaurant on the pier that does fresh, organic and local food. They have both a restaurant and café. Their aesthetic is really nice and the view of the ocean is beautiful...

    I just came back from a wonderful trip in Los Angeles and am feeling slightly nostalgic looking back at those pictures. There are so many fun things to do and nice places to see in LA, it is almost overwhelming. Like with all my trips, I do extensive research before going so I thought I would make the job easier for you by breaking down my favourite spots with my personal reviews. Hope you enjoy! Activities in Los Angeles: Walk Melrose avenue: one of LA's most famous streets. Great for shopping, eating and having a stroll around. You can stop by Gracias Madre for lunch on the way (review below)...
