Believe it or not, I’ve never explored Los Angeles before! I briefly visited LA about 6 years ago and hit up Manhattan Beach then drove towards Palm Springs, so it was about time. Sabrina and I packed a lot into our one week vacation so I thought I would put together a Los Angeles travel guide for 2018 to keep you in the loop and share my favourite spots.

This week, I’m sharing how to mix bright and muted colours in your outfit. Over the last 10 years I’ve been through phases of colour, black and white exclusively and back to colour.
