Ernest Palm Springs

Surprise! You can actually find a proper coffee in Palm Springs, Ernest Coffee Co. Although it was not consistent every day I was there, it beats out the other options. And when this Aussie girl ordered a Flat White they knew what I was talking about…unlike the majority of American cafes I visited. Perfectly situated in the heart of Palm Springs uptown design district, the decor is suitably modern and carries a hipster vibe. It means you can get your caffeine fix while people watching and then…shopping. Perfect.

Beautiful Balboa Island

Beautiful Balboa Island

We took a day trip out to Newport Beach and Balboa Island because it is one of my favourite places to wander. Balboa Island is so serene and peaceful with awesome American style holiday homes, a quaint village and stunning water views. Grab a frozen banana and wander around the perimeter of the island. I suggest parking the car at Newport Beach and catching the ferry over. You can driv but I really believe it is best walked, especially on a divine, sunny California day. When we went it was Halloween so of course all the houses were dressed for the occasion, let the pictures speak for themselves!

While in Los Angeles I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to see Mick Rock’s photo exhibition at Taschen’s on Beverly Boulevard.

The exhibition consisted of formal shots as well as intimate back stage and on the road  photos. I love Bowie and it was so cool to get a peek behind the scenes.

Mick Rock, who is often dubbed “The man who shot the 1970’s,” also photographed Pink Floyd, Lou Reed, Queen, Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Blondie and well… the list goes on.

While at the Taschen I also was able to look at many of their other original works and I just wished I had one of their amazing coffee table books in my suitcase… Next time.
