Meet My New Home: Venice Beach, LA


Guess what! This little gypsetter has a new temporary home in no other place than the city of angels.

I’m not exactly sure how it transpired to be honest, but a few weeks ago I decided I needed to move to LA. Lot’s of opportunities were presenting themselves there, I kept going back and forth between San Francisco and LA for meetings and I knew that I wanted to find a more permanent place to live in for the USA summer. It feels a little bit genie in a bottle, but as soon as I whispered my desires the spell of “your wish is my command” was placed into the world and very quickly I found a very sweet new home.

It’s the first time I’ve had a place to call my own in 12 months and it feels so good to have my own home again!


The walls will need a bit of a juicing up with pretty images. I feel an inspiration wall coming on! And the bed is like a happy cloud of white with a silver lining and knowing that its all mine, makes me smile!


This is probably the tidiest my wardrobe will ever look, so let’s enjoy it while it lasts!


Some of the many treasures collected during my travels. I’m going to be selling some of my precious jewelry from Mexico soon, so if you’re into unique pieces of jade and silver, keep a lookout for when I place them on sale!


I celebrated my move in with a plate of organic celery with almond butter. It’s just like wine, but crunchier! (I know what you’re thinking, and yes, you’re right. Geek alert.)
