Laguna Beach is known for independently owned, unique boutiques. Check out this new one in the smallest retail space in town at Cleo St. and PCH. Each item is hand crafted from Africa under the "Fair Trade" guidelines.

In the 1950s, #lagunabeach was one of only five beaches to hold open volleyball tournaments in California. Each event was partnered with a beauty contest. #lagunabeachvolleyball #volleyball #beachvolleyball
Holiday palettes are up in #lagunabeach. There are over 200 decorating our town with some new ones every year. The city also has a children's palette competition. The winners are selected in November and designs are exhibited at City Hall all of December.
Who is Carol Leifer? Brilliant comedian and writer who worked with Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, performed on all the late night talk shows, who recently wrote a book called, "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Crying". What is the book about? What to do and what not to do when starting out your career in whatever industry you choose. Her stories of successes and failures tell valuable life lessons in a way that make you laugh. Thanks Carol for coming out to one of the only independent bookstores left around, Laguna Beach Books.

Yard library in north Laguna Beach
Love my neighbor on Jasmine St. for putting this in their yard. You take a book and leave a book. It's like our actual library in #lagunabeach without the cards or hobos. #library #readabook
