1920s apartments and hair salons with catchy names
define the neighborhood around Kings Road in Los Angeles…

But my favorite spot of all is this place…

Kings Road newsstand

The Kings Newsstand, packed with foreign magazines. I love buying copies of French Vogue and the World of Interiors before heading next door to the coffee house, where they make lattes decorated with hearts…

    Magazines & coffee? HEAVEN! Now a little Southern California sunshine and some good chatting company and I'd have it made! Hmmm? Who could I possibly chat with over coffee and magazines? πŸ˜‰

  29. Micaela says:

    i love foreign magazines too! its so fun to see what kind of layouts they have, how styles are different around the world, and you can sort of travel vicariously.

    theres a book store that sells used books near where i live that sells a whole bunch of foreign mags and i would always end up spending more money than i should on all these intriguing foreign magazines (which are really expensive)

    anywhoo…i love the last photo. thats so cute!

  30. Hayley says:

    that latte looks pretty delicious πŸ˜€
