We arrived in San Diego...

So Tom & I arrived in San Diego in the evening at around 6.30 pm, and met Marcus at the airport to take us home to his house...

Here are a few snaps taken from my phone, Tom has the proper photos on his lovely camera so this is just a snap of the various places I have taken for my family and friends to keep track of what I'm getting up to....

Tuesday 30th August  - The first day here in California! Journey in the car on the way to our first day out..


Our first day out in San Diego was a lovely one, we first went out to a nearby mall, the Fashion Valley Mall, for a bit of shopping and we also had our first corn dog! 
We then went to Balboa Park which was very beautiful and had a walk around and met with Eddie for a stroll in the sun..

 View from the bridge of the freeway underneath us.

Marcus and Tommy..

This was a tree Marcus used to sit under and have lunch when he was at school..

After strolling around Marcus then took me to the rose garden as he knows I have a thing about them..! It was absolutely beautiful..

Curly noonie plant.. we all thought mother would like this one..!

So we got back to Marcus' house and his mum treated us to a lovely meal downtown in a Spanish tapas place called Romescols. We had lots of food and cocktails and it was a great day.!

YSL Arty Ring.

I got my beautiful gift in the post the other morning and I almost died from excitement. I had seen this ring on a few hands, including a friend at work & a lady at a train station and it caught my eye. Its such a statement ring and the beautiful oval stone comes in all different colours, its chunkyness appealed to me, its so unusual and definitely worth the money. I have been lusting over one for a while now, but after my 21st birthday I thought I would make use of some money I got from the family. I love the vivid turquoise against the bright gold, its absolutely gorgeous. & It only took 4 days to deliver from the US, very impressed. 

I can't take it off!
