I went to Disneyland!!! I was lucky enough to go to Disney in Florida when I was 8, but I honestly think it was almost as much fun this time around. I’m not really a theme park person, I hate UK theme parks because I can hardly manage any rides due to horrible motion sickness, and they’re generally pretty dirty and crap places to be, but Disney is another story altogether. It’s such a great experience, everything is spotlessly clean, the streets and the shops and general scenery and atmosphere are amazing, and there are only a few rides which I think would make me sick so I have plenty to do all day. Not that anyone needs persuading that Disneyland is great, I’m sure…
I wore Bourjois ‘Blue No Blues’ on my nails throughout my holiday, I had been searching for the perfect turquoise shade for a while and this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately it exploded in my suitcase on the flight home (!!!!!) so I don’t have much left now (and I am down a dress and a shirt!), but it was definitely amazing while it lasted.
I’m back! California was amazing, I only got to see a tiny part of it comparatively speaking, but it was a really unforgettable experience nonetheless. I plan on showing you some parts of my holiday over the course of a few posts, but if you want a look at snapshots of the whole thing, check out my Instagram – hannahlouisef.
One of my days was spent around LA, sightseeing in Hollywood and shopping on the super cool Melrose Avenue.
Melrose Avenue is a very eclectic mixture of shops and eateries, it has everything from designer to taxidermy to Subway, but my favourites were definitely the huge and quite reasonably priced vintage stores. I was pleasantly surprised at most of the pricing, as the big vintage stores in Manchester have (in my opinion) started hugely overpricing some things and it is often much more worth your while searching online or in charity shops for bargains.
