I am finally home from my whirlwind trip of the States! CHA was once again AMAZING, it was so wonderful to catch up with so many friends in the industry and meet a lot of new ones too! I have been so blessed and have some amazing opportunities coming my way for 'Your Creative Journey' and I will keep you all informed as they happen!
So of to CHA I went, along with Jane Clark, Tracey Shenton, Andrea Cosier and my 16yo daughter, we were all booked on the same flight and we all sat together, it was a lot of fun to say the least, I love these girls! We did the whole thing at CHA but we also did some other stuff together like shopping on Rodeo Drive!
We went to lunch at a cute cafe in Hollywood. We then headed off to Venice Beach but got lost and ended up (after a very long but lovely drive) at Santa Monica Pier, it was beautiful as always and right on sunset! The sun was bright hence the squinting LOL
Then it was back to LA, we made sure to drive down Sunset Boulevard.
Another night we headed back to Sunset Boulevard to have dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe!
As I mentioned earlier I have been blessed to have some amazing opportunites come my way...
