Oh The Places You'll Go (& Giveaway)

I've read Melissa's blog New Girl on the Post, for as long as I can remember. (If I had to guess it's probably been 2 or 3 years.) When I first started reading, her husband was stationed in Italy and many of her posts dealt with all the places they traveled too. I love looking at her photos, since in a way they're able transport me to Europe. I obviously wasn't the only one to feel that way, since she opened up an Esty Shop, Around the World in 80 Frames to share her photos. A few of my favorites are below, and hopefully they make you feel a bit like you're on vacation!



Yes, another one in France. Can you tell I'm a bit of a francophile?

Cinque Terre
And finally for one a little closer to home for me...
New Orleans
If you love these photos too, today is your lucky day, because Melissa will be giving away 8x10 print (a $25 value) of your choice! Although that does mean you'll have to pick a favorite out of all her photos, which may be difficult! In addition, if you don't win, or there's something you absolutely must have now, Melissa is also offering a 15% discount to all From L.A. to LA readers! Just use the code LAblog when ordering.

Disclosure: I was provided with my own 8x10 print in exchange for hosting this giveaway. Although I didn't know that would be the case until after I already agree to host. I just want to help Melissa promote her shop, and thought you guys would love her photos!


  1. LOVE your new design!! I don't know if you changed something or if it looked different to me when i first saw it. But i am realizing it probably had so much white b/c i was looking at it on a GIGANTIC mac computer (at work). HA!!

  2. I don't know this blog, thanks for pointing it out! Her photos are gorgeous!

  3. LOVE the photo of the wedding dresses in Wroclaw....since I lived in Poland, it makes it more magical! Love it.

  4. I love the Venice photo! I received a couple of her photographs for Christmas a few years ago and I just love them!

  5. Beautiful pictures! I would choose Cinque Terre Coast, Manarola, Italy.

  6. Oh fun! I would pick the print with the metro sign as I think Paris metro signs are so charming!

  7. This would be a tough pick, but I'm leaning to the one of Venice.

  8. Oh how gorgeous! I think I'd have to pick... Monmarte!
