Since I wrote last, we have continued our road trip around North America, exploring Dallas through to Orlando, and all that's in between. Some highlights: Dallas was a great shopping spot and Memphis had an amazing nightlife, as did the home of country music - Nashville. We enjoyed some Southern hospitality, honky tonk, food, and even some Moonshine. We arrived in Orlando yesterday, and today spent some time exploring Disneyland (which left me somewhat underwhelmed). Tomorrow we are on the road again to visit Miami, where we plan to soak up the sun.

P.S. I was thrilled to receive an email from Tangent Magazine, letting me know that they had included an interview with me in their latest edition - check it out .

Having just arrived in Dallas, Texas, I noticed that Friend in Fashion has reached the one year mark. I'd like to thank each and every one of my fabulous followers, and everyone who has supported me by visiting, commenting or emailing me.
I thought I'd take this opportunity to share some of my favourites with you.
I've had a great time over the past year sharing with you some of my fashion and adventures. I have been inspired and met some amazing bloggers, online and through my travels and have been fortunate enough to have worked with some incredible emerging designers and photographers.
Thank you again, and I look forward to sharing more Friend in Fashion.

We left Las Vegas today, to hit the road for the Grand Canyon. We made an impromptu stop over on the four hour drive to grab a few shots of my latest dress purchase. I picked up this floral treat for only $16. I teamed this dress with a vintage black blazer, tights and bow hair piece for a night on the town.
Las Vegas was an absolutely crazy city to visit! To summarise: bright lights, glitz, gambling, and outlet shopping. The highlight of our Vegas visit would have to be an amazing French meal at Daniel Boulud followed by a spectacular Cirque du Soleil produced, Le Reve.

I write to you from a small town, Lone Pine, half way between Yosemite and Las Vegas.
We left San Francisco on Monday, and spent the last few days in the awe inspiring Yosemite National Park - I even saw a real life wolf/coyote thing (wildlife isn't my forte!).
As the title of this post suggests, San Francisco completely stole my heart, the most gorgeous city with great style. From Fisherman's Warf (where you can sample arguably the best clam chowder), to Haight-Ashbury (where the hippie movement started and swamped by the most amazing thrift stores), to the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito, Alcatraz Island and The Castro! There was so much to see and do.
During my San Fran visit, I was also lucky enough to catch up with the beautiful Heather of Heather in a Candy Shop. We ate at an amazing Mexican restaurant by the marina and spent the remainder of the evening, bar hopping - a great evening!
The next time you hear from me will be from Las Vegas.

Here are a couple of my favourite shots taken a couple of weeks ago by local photographer Nicole of Nichol Brooklyn Studio.
Just a quick update. Today we left San Diego for our journey to San Francisco. San Diego was an amazing city, with beautiful landscape, friendly people and some of the most amazing and diverse cuisine and nightlife on offer. San Diego Zoo was a definite highlight and I would encourage any one planning travels to the USA to visit.
Tonight we make a brief stop over in Santa Barbara, before continuing on to San Francisco. I hope to meet up with some of the gorgeous San Francisco based bloggers over the next few days.

Today we said goodbye to Los Angeles. We had such a great time in LA, such an exciting city! We were lucky to be in town around Academy Awards time, there was a great buzz to the place.
This morning we hired a Corvette and spent the day cruising along the coast, passing through Orange County and Laguna Beach, observing some of the most luxurious homes I have ever seen.
Tonight we arrived in San Diego (gas lamp quarter) and tomorrow, San Diego Zoo, Sea World, beaches and other attractions.

P.S. A big thank you to Neekoh of Live Love LA who was kind enough to arrange a blogger catchup yesterday in LA. It was great to catch up with some fabulous LA based bloggers: Wrecked Stellar and Style with Benefits for brunch and a spot of shopping!

After a mammoth 14 hour flight, my fiance and I arrived in LA yesterday - and what a day it was...
We met some locals who showed us around Beverly Hills before checking in to our fabulous hotel - the Shangri-La, Santa Monica . We were greeted by a team of lovely staff, each more than happy to help with some of LA's must see's and do's, great for us out-of-towners.
I love interiors, so our art deco inspired room is simply amazing, what's more a peek out of one of the many windows which encompass our room, reveals the most spectacular views of the gorgeous Santa Monica beach, which is but a stones throw away from our hotel .
After an afternoon of shopping along 3rd Street Promenade (a great shopping precinct), we headed down to the Staples Centre to take in a truly LA experience - a basketball game - LA Lakers vs Indiana Pacers. With Jack Nicholson and Ryan Gossling in sight, we enjoyed an evening of fun and entertainment, not to mention a Lakers win.
Today we are off to Venice Beach, some more shopping, the Hollywood tonight for dinner.
