Venice CA is for sure one of my favorite places in southern california to shop, people watch, walk around and get a tasty bite to eat! I lived in Culver City for a year which was pretty close to Venice, so I tried to go as often as I could! Los Angeles is an awesome city for so many reasons. I am not totally sure why, but sometimes I didn’t always find it as inspiring as some other places. So, to me Venice was a little escape, still within the greater LA area but something about it was much more peaceful, exciting and inspiring. I could seriously wander around abbot kinney blvd. all day! Just looking around, poking my head into every store, eating honey lavender ice cream from Salt & Straw and buying wayyy too many cards. I love cute cards and will never pass up a chance to snag one for a friend or even myself haha. I bought this card from one of the cutest stores, Burro. It said “even shooting stars dream of you” and I just wrote a little note to myself! haha. One of my other favorite things to do is walk around the Venice Canals. It is soo quiet and absolutely the cutest little area to live. Last time I was there I saw a mommy duck with her little duckings! They were so fluffy and cute and just cracking me up trying to keep up with each other :’)
These pictures were taken on one of my last days in LA, I strolled around Venice, had two drinks (maybe 3?) from Intelligentsia Coffee (obviously the coffee and matcha is great! but you gotta try the peony tea!!) and got mexican food.
