California Adventures: Day One

Our first stop in California was my choice, not necessarily because I was given the privilege, but because I had an appointment. I was able to go to Chi Nail Spa, which is located in Beverly Hills on Santa Monica Blvd. The nail salons in Georgia cannot compare to the service I receive here. The place had a chic atmosphere and a friendly staff that did everything to make sure I was comfortable. I knew that I wanted to get a gel manicure with rockstar gradation, but I didn't have in mind what colors I wanted. After browsing the selection of colors that were adorned with Hello Kitty duct tape, I finally came to a decision.

I knew that I wanted something cute and fun that was not over the top, so I settled on a light pink gel color and a reddish pink glitter. My technician Mie did a great job grooming my nails before applying the polish, and afterwards I receive a complimentary sugar scrub, ending the whole experience on a relaxing note. 

After my appointment we made our way towards The Grove. It was great to walk around and shop outside. Here in California I pretty much want to do everything outside because there is no humidity which is refreshing since I spend most of my summer days in Georgia wear the humidity is constant, or as I like to call it sometimes "weather you wear." We made our way to the Topshop at the Grove, pleased to discover that they were having a huge sale. I purchased a white dress that I am going to wear on Bid day during rush.

Next we went to Verameat. It's a jewelry store owned by the model Vera Balyura. Most of the jewelry is very simple, which I love. It was also pretty inexpensive. After looking around for awhile I finally settled on the feather ring that I can wear as a midi ring. 

The cute little box my ring came in. 

 On our way to the Sprinkles in Beverly hills I spotted a Banksy. It was incredible to see something that I have seen online so much in person.

 The last time I was in California my family made multiple trips to Sprinkles Cupcake, but at that time they didn't have ice cream. So of course I had to give it a try. I had the sprinkles sundae with cap'n crunch ice cream and the cinnamon cupcake. It was so good and the perfect way to end a great day.
