The second day of me and my honey's San Diego weekend trip a few months back was spent exploring Coronado Island. Years ago it was featured on an episode of Baywatch and ever since I've wanted to go.
Remember when they go to the "haunted" Hotel Del Coronado and one of the lifeguards gets spooked?

I love ghosts, real haunted houses and scary stories, so I had to check it out for myself.

I guess this place is a tourist attraction because there were so many people just hanging out (with cameras). Back in the day, old Hollywood movie stars would shoot their films and hang out here.
Unfortunately, I didn't see any ghosts! ; )

I have to admit, I have a problem with buying the same brand or even the same dress in many colors. I'm like Elizabeth Hurley with Versace. But when you love it, why not!

This past weekend I went up to Heathers to have a fun day around Santa Monica. First stop was the farmers' market. What's cool about this one is that they have live music, food, shopping and little picnic areas on the grass to eat your food or just hang out. They also have valet parking for beach cruiser bikes!
And a petting zoo for the kiddies.
How cute is this Llama!
Now if you look closely at this photo you'll see a man on stilts dressed as a "tree".
He stands around the trees and then jumps out to startle people. Definitely a bit odd but interesting to see.

I bought some flowers.
Heather bought some avocados.
Since we got there a little late in the day and they were closing soon, we walked down the street to La Grande Orange restaurant and grabbed a bite to eat.
Veggie tacos and veggie burgers. Delicious!
On our walk home we passed the Santa Monica city garden.

People take their picnicking seriously here. The lady in front of us whipped out a cutting board, knife and loaf of bakery bread and made a sandwich!

I absolutely love the look of lucite furniture. It's sleek, contemporary and perfect for small spaces (ie perfect for my apartment)!

Since I moved into my fiance's place about 2 years ago, I've been adding my feminine touch (bye bye bachelor pad!) and so far I've transformed the guest room and kitchen. I've also added splashes of femininity throughout the living room as well although it's still a work in progress :)
It's so much prettier now!
Some gorgeous lucite furniture that I would LOVE to add to the living room:
