Rodeo Drive, baby.

About 2 weeks ago, I visited my roommate Kaylie, for my trip to LA..and there were soo many places/things to do packed in just those 6 days -- in reality, the things I did should've been spread out in a span of 2 weeks lol.  But, thanks so much to my sweetest roomie for showing me around LA!  Enjoy this photo overload of my LA trip..first day there! :)
We first stopped by The Grove, an outdoor shopping area.  First off, I just need to say that the weather there although really hot..I looved it lol.  Just coming from windy/semi-cold bay area weather, it was a nice change! :)
We visited the Farmer's Market inside the grove, and there were all these really cute shops with miniature tea pots and cupcakes..and better yet, cute little animal candles! lol
We ate at the famous italian restaurant, Andre's..their spaghetti was superr delish, and loved the sign on how important Pizza really is ;p.
Next, visited Rodeo Drive.  First time visiting!  And of course reminded me of Pretty woman, the inspiration behind the title of this post :).  It was so pretty and couldn't exactly buy anything at the stores (I have to wait until I'm a millionaire for that), but I enjoyed walking around the beautiful area :).

Visited this cute chocolate shop that sold Eiffel Tower chocolate sticks.
There was even this little alley way, felt like I was in another country even.
Then later, visited also Robertson Blvd. (other place with lots of shops) and not photographed here, Beverly Center (a big mall with lots shops on every floor).  Whew, tiring talking about what i did..imagine how tired i was lol.  We ended up going to like 3 or 4 parking garages and it was the most I walked ever in a longg time. We saw a billboard sign that summed up our day perfectly -- "Eat, Shop, Love."

Stay tuned for more posts on my LA trip! :)  
Tonight am attending the Sneakpeeq "Sip and Sample" sample sale event in sf w/ Chanda of PancakeStacker and Cindy of Design3rd.  Hope you're all having a great week so far lovelies!
♥, Kathleen.
