City of Angels Day 2

Day #2 of my LA trip.  I visited a total of 4 places in just one-day, so was very excited and thrilled to get to see so much of LA in one day.  I hung out with blogger Deanna of A California Dreamer and she was super sweet to show me around her turf ;p.  Started off the day with some deelicious brunch at Blu Jam Cafe.  Warning: the french toast photo will make you very very hungry. :)
The cafe was on Melrose, so walked around the area to different shops, including Wasteland, Slow Vintage, Crossroads, and Urban Outfitters.  LOVED thrifting there, wish I could take Melrose with me ;p.
Afterwards, drove to Venice beach!  And I must tell you, I was SOO happy to see the beautiful beach and blue skies.  I rarely get to see these kind of beaches in the bay area, so it was a veryy nice change.
The beach houses were to-die-for.  One day, I will own one..and everyday will look out my bedroom window to beautiful beach scenery :).
Walked along Venice beach and visited diff little shops..and doing what bloggers do best, brought out our big DSLRs to take photos :).
After hanging out with Deanna, met up again w/ my roomie and her bf, for reservations at a cute gourmet french restaurant, Comme Ca in west hollywood.
Later that night, we visited the CityWalk at Universal Studios, def really cool to see at night with all the lights. 
Whew, and thaat was my entire Day 2 at LA.  Definitely had a fun time visiting all these places with great company, thx so much Deanna for showing me around!  And once again thx to my roomie for bringing me everyywhere.  This makes me miss LA, we will meet again city of angels.

Thank you so much again beautifuls for all the support on my blog, it really means a lot to have you all as aamazing inspirational readers.  Hope you had a lovely week and TGIF!! I'm going to attend on Friday the F3 art, fashion, and craftsmanship event at Oakland Cotton Mill! w/ other bay area bloggers.  
PS. Next LA trip post will be on my first LA blogger meet-up :).
♥, Kathleen.

I bet you had so much fun! I would love to go to L.A. or California in general. I know I would love it. Florida is kind of like Cali but just Cali just seems so much more exciting. AND You look gorgeous in all these photos of course :)
