It’s a California Christmas, Top Down with the Radio On

My Next Christmas Shopping Destination: West Hollywood.  Namely?  The Grove.
Why? They make it SNOW at 7pm and 8pm! Pure joy~!!!!
That was, of course, my main reason for the choice. Secondly, they have some decent shops! Nordstrom, Zara, Forever 21, Top Shop, Coach, Madewell, Michael Kors, J Crew, Anthropologie and more.

Upon returning home near midnight, I had so many bags, I felt like a Penguin! I went twice in one week for the silly little snowfall.

Some photos, to show the evolution of a California Christmas. In the day there are Palm Trees and blue fountains but it can change into a Wonderland Palace.

  1. It looks amazing there. So beautiful. Your style is envy. It must be nice to not have to wear big coats like here.

  2. Miss Gorgeous. Now I know how you maintain that figure, shopping with all those bags.

    Merry Christmas, can’t wait to get that card.

    1. ♥ Matty, I think you are right about shopping. I heard a report say that the average shopping trip can burn over 1000+ calories~! More shopping for me~! Now that’s retail therapy.

      Card sent out 2 days ago. ♥

  3. Do you feel like your eternal icon, Barbie Doll, yet? Do people stop you on the street? Do you have your license yet so you can get that little convertable?

    1. I do feel a bit like Barbie!! ♡♡♡ I’ve ridden in some beautiful convertibles. Gotta get that license so I can do it everyday. ♡

      Yea, people are always stopping me on the street. I don’t know why. At first, I thought it was maybe my hair. So I stopped and now I don’t wear it down but I still keep getting their attention.

  4. Hey Amber :-) Thanks for sharing your lovely shots of California, really given us a feel of Xmas. What camera are you running? you always seem to get great results . I have a Canon Ixus 90 but have always wanted a big ol Nikon-. Enjoy the egg nog ! Take Care sweetie Craig

    1. ♡ ♡ ♡ I’m definitely trying to keep the Christmas spirit, it’s a bit difficult in warm sunny weather of L.A. but thankfully it’s been a little chilly and drab here, I love it~!

      The Canon Ixus 90 takes great shots for a small camera~! I use an Olympus PEN and a Canon Rebel. A lot of people trash on the Rebel but a decent photographer can take a good shot with an iphone, so, I love my Rebel. I argued with myself for a long time whether or not to go Nikon or Canon. I’ve seen your photos on Instagram, I think any camera you use will be wonderful, you have a great eye. ♡ ♡ ♡

  5. I’m glad to see that the spirit of Christmas is there. You look like you’re in the mood. I really need to do some shopping for my family.
