My quick guide for L.A : DOS

As a European, one of the things i like to do while in the US is to get products that we normally find it difficult to buy in our country of origin or simply jump into products that make them more accessible due to the currency exchange. In any case, if you decide to fly to LA, there are infinite malls where you can get anything you're looking for, like South Coast Plaza one hour away from the downtown. I would personally recommend you to check out The Grove which is an outdoor shopping area with a Topshop store included. Also, the 3rd Promenade in Santa Monica, is the best street to shop without hassle.

Como europea, una de las cosas que más me gusta es aprovechar los viajes a Estados Unidos para hacerme con productos que normalmente no solemos encontrar tan fácilmente en nuestro país de orígen o sencillamente lanzarme a probar productos que por su precio en dólares los hacen mucho más accesibles. En cualquier caso, si decidís viajar a Los Angeles, hay infinidad de centros comerciales donde haceros con todo lo que queráis y más, como el de South Coast Plaza a una hora del centro. Personalmente, os recomiendo The Grove, un centro comercial al aire libre que viene con Topshop incluído o en Santa Monica, el 3rd Promenade, una de las mejores calles para hacer shopping a tus aires y sin agobios.

Another interesting shopping area is the one in Abbot Kinney Boulevard. You'll find the trendiest shops with products of more independent Californian brands: jewelry, clothing, art, decoration, books... the perfect occasion to get that souvenir you won't find anywhere else. Shops not to be missed: Firefly, Principessa, Kolu or Toms.

Otra zona interesante para comprar es la de Abbot Kinney. Ahí encontraréis infinidad de tiendas trendy con productos de marcas californianas más independientes: bisutería, ropa, arte, decoración, libros... la ocasión perfecta para hacerte con ese recuerdo que no encontrarás en ningún otro sitio. Tiendas que no os podéis perder: Firefly, Principessa, Kolu o Toms.

One of my favortite brands of the Californian coast is Cleobella. You can find it at Principessa together with brands like Mara Hoffman, L*Space and Chaser.

Una de mis marcas de complementos preferidas de la costa californiana es Cleobella, que juntos con Mara Hoffman, L*Space y Chaser también podéis encontrar en Principessa.

  1. Is this what you bought or just your recommendations Marta?

    Love VS too - we have it here but it is so expensive, like twice the price as in the UAE. Sickening.

  2. Thelma, this is what i bought, except for Toms shoes. I thought it's something i'd wear around California but no so much in my city (too laid back for bcn?) If i had to choose just one of these products that would be the Sugar Fresh Lip Treatment... i love it!

  3. I'm in love with Brandy Melville!!
    thanks for your info Marta...
    some kisses desde somepleasures!!
