Thursday Treats: Well, That Was Eventful…


I am writing this post while sat cross-legged on the floor in LAX airport. To say my journey home from Palm Springs has been tumultuous is literally the understatement of the millennium. Two cancelled flights, two missed connections, two very expensive flight changes, two unexpected nights in a random (but actually very lovely) hotel, three lost pieces of luggage and two very weary travellers and we’re still trying to get back to Blighty!

My travel companion, Richard, and I have been battered about from pillar to post. I’m not usually one to name and shame but for goodness sakes never fly with United Airlines. They have royally screwed us… twice. Literally the worst airline and customer service I have ever experienced…

However I’ve been trying my best to keep things positive, despite having to wear the same underwear for four days in a row!  We had a 15 hour layover in LA today which meant we were able to get out of the airport (and into some fresh air) and went to hang out with Shauna who just happened to be here! She took us out for delicious food, found us a store to buy new pants (!) and generally cheered us up no end. I love you Nubbles!

At least all these delays have meant one thing – plenty of time for scouring the interwebz for Thursday Treats… I’m always keeping things positive baby!

I found my ridiculous sunglasses in a random design shop in Palm Springs. They were only $19 and I am obsessed… do you reckon I can get away with them in Reading?! Very Mrs Wonka don’t ya think?

Have a great weekend everyone. I’m heading under my duvet for – oh I don’t know – maybe about a week to recover from my epic voyage.

I’ll see you on the other side.


  1. Kat, you and Richard made MY day by showing up on my doorstep at the crack of dawn! Browsing stores on Melrose, taking in amazing design, graffiti and signs was awesome. Thanks for breaking up my routine and inspiring me to take a little adventure. Hope you’ve made it home safely by now! xoxo

    Loved your report… funny,an Englishman who jilted me to marry another woman is now working the tarmack at Heathrow for UA. Maybe that is why your trip was shit,lol. Sorry about that :/ Glad you are back home and safe x

  3. I’m sorry to hear you had such a stressful trip back home 🙁 I’ve been though similar situations before so I totally get where you’re coming from. This is why I always pack an extra change of clothes in my carry-on now, you just never know when your flight is going to be delayed or when an airline is going to ‘misplace’ your suitcase!

    Looks like you had a great time with Shauna though so I guess that’s a silver lining 🙂 xx
