SHE LOVES :
>> REFORMATION STORE, Melrose Avenue LA - Available online, but nothing compares to this huge store, which has an amazing vintage section too. Spent about 4 hours there last time. Sexy, Eco clothing – nothing beats it.
>> CHEZ JANOU – I go there every time I go to Paris. Awesome traditional Parisian decor and the best scallop risotto I’ve ever tasted. The chocolate pudding comes in the biggest bowl you’ve ever seen, that you can re-fill as many times as your heart desires….
>> MONTEREY AQUARIUM, Big Sur – one of mine and my boyfriend’s favourite places in the world. I still think of the sea otters showing off and the startlingly beautiful jellyfish.
>> SERPENTINE GALLERY - Absolutely love walking around Hyde Park, grabbing a pedalo on the Serpentine and having a wander around the small, but perfectly formed Serpentine Gallery.
>> SHOP SUPER STREET - I’m a massive online shopper and at the moment my favorite is this brand new LA e-store, which has the sickest edit.
