Santa Monica Dreamin'.

Day #3 of my LA Trip a few weeks ago, had the chance to have my first LA blogger meet-up w/ the lovely Crystal of Cryskay.com. My roomie, Kaylie also came to hang out as well.  We visited the beeeautiful city of Santa Monica..all the sights, blue-skies, and white sand..if only I can stay and lounge there all summer long :p.
There were the cutest set of beach houses..looks like even houses know how to color-block ;). The pink and purple one was my fave, barbie-like.
And of course, had to take a pic of the infamous LA traffic :P.
Ate at a sushi-boat restaurant back in Old Town, Pasadena with Kaylie later on.  Looved it!  I am on a quest to find an equivalent restaurant here in the bay area.  If you know of any, please tell me! :)
We found this huuge smurf thing (k, don't blame me, I forgot what they are called! lol) in the middle of the shopping center in SM.  We couldn't help but take funny pics in front of it...picking its nose :P.
One day, I will invite you all to my pretty beach house in Santa Monica :)..a girl can dream right?
P.S. Check out Crystal's blog post on our SM trip too!
--
I hope you lovelies had a great weekend!  And are enjoying the sun (finally the gloomy days are gone)..you think we'll have an indian summer in the bay area this fall like last year?  Anyways, I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your sweetest comments & support on my blog.  Am off to get lots of inspiration from your blogs! <3  Happy Monday Beautifuls!

There's actually a nice sushi boat place in Japantown, right next to the bathrooms above the parking garage. It's relatively cheap and it tastes okay. Great place to go with one or two people, since it's rather small.

Those houses on Santa Monica are so cute! I saw them when I was there, as well

Isobune in the Japantown mall is so good. And I think it is much better than the one in Old Town.
