Going to school in Marina Del Rey is wonderfully convenient, as Santa Monica is just a 15 minute drive up Lincoln Boulevard.
This lovely little shop called Tumbleweed and Dandelion is located on Abbot Kinney in Santa Monica. Filled with home decor that combines the aesthetic of a French cottage and beach house, it is truly a spot for a woman's whimsical soul to obtain inspiration. The store is a home converted to a store, and I may or may not have asked to move in. I was not allowed.
