The Sunday Post: Shopping in Santa Monica

Santa Monica was by far my favourite of the few parts of California I had the time to see, with amazing shops, restaurants and a pier and a beach that almost made me feel at home. I actually partially blame the beach and pier combo for the case of extreme homesick-ness that came along soon after. I had my first taste of Nasty Gal, Bloomingdales and Nordstrom (the best of them all) and discovered that the US Brandy Melville’s are awesome.

Unfortunately we didn’t have too long to spend there (even these photos were snapped whilst waiting for our Uber) but it would definitely be a part I would love to explore more in the future.

In other, more current news – this morning I’m off to spend the day at a spa in the countryside before my best friends wedding on Monday. I get a full 48 hours of countryside calm before returning to Brighton, grabbing my bags and heading to Ibiza for three days!

It’s going to be a bit of a crazy whirlwind, but I’ll try and keep things updated around these parts as and when I can (naturally videos will still go up as usual). I’m full of nerves but at the same time I’m so excited to be setting off again!

    I loved Santa Monica so much, especially in the nighttime it looks beautiful when it's illuminated by all the fairy lights. Take care and I can't wait for photos from Ibiza! x

    Hi everyone! Life without my boyfriend was a real mess for me,What on Earth will i do to thank Dr.Unity for his help? he is wonderful and has a good heart. He is like a God on Earth and i really do not know what to do to thank him for helping me regain my boyfriend love back with his spell. After being in relationship with my boyfriend (Andrew) for 3 years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before two days, that my ex will return to me before two days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the other ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, like of issue of not being able to get pregnant for many years, lotto, his email is: or call him on +2348072370762 you can email him if you need his help in your relationship or any other problem like wining lottery your problem can never remain the same again, it will turn a thing of the past in your life..I am Katy Brown by name i live here in Los Angeles, California United States.
