    Day Trip to Solvang

    TOP: Lulu’s  |   SKIRT: Lulu’s  |  SANDALS: Forever 21  |  BAG: Coach  |  SUNGLASSES: T.J. Maxx            I’ve been wanting to return to Solvang since we moved to California but we haven’t really gotten around to it until now.  Last time I was there was almost 5 years ago.  It was raining and cloudy, not the best day.  It’s a little over 2 hours from Los Angeles, good for a day trip.  I love European inspired towns.  This one is Danish and every single corner of this town fits that theme.  If that’s your thing (like it is mine) you should really check it out sometime.…

    Why You Should Have a Bucket List

                 I’ve had a bucket list since sometime in High School.  I have always liked the idea of keeping track of my life goals.  I am a huge list-maker.  I am definitely the type of person that loves to have diverse experiences too.  I feel like having a list just helps you to stay on track for accomplishing as much as you can in life.  It kind of ensures that you have fun and do what you love to do.  If you are bored or you have a birthday coming up it’s nice to have a list that you can look at to accomplish something…

    What to Wear With Mom Jeans

    TOP: H&M  (similar)  |  JEANS: H&M  |  SHOES: Abound (Nordstrom Rack)  |  BAG: H&M  |  NECKLACE: Gift           I have been a longtime fan of mom jeans.  I feel like the trend kind of started out with boyfriend jeans.  They were much baggier, often had lots of rips, and lower waistline.  I didn’t really like those, not going to lie.  Once the trend migrated to mom jeans, I hopped onboard.  The waistline of mom jeans is higher and they are a bit more narrow.  I really love them now.  I own 4 pairs and they are normally the only style of jeans I wear.  I do…

    Cute Face Masks

    (Photo from FindyourMast) Etsy   (photo from Bauble Bar) (Photo from Anthropologie (Photo from Forever 21) (photo from Shopbop)  Tanya Taylor photo from Free People             Here are my favorite picks for cute masks.  I know tons of brands are making them now and most designers.  They are constantly selling out from a lot of the more popular designers, so I didn’t bother linking those.  I may make a park two of this post, depending on how long Coronavirus is around.  Non of these are medical grade, so they still require 6 feet of distance.  I am merely just sharing my favorites!  If you are…

    2 Days in Big Sur

              If you saw my last post, you probably know that My husband and I went to Big Sur last weekend.  We haven’t gone anywhere in almost a year.  Obviously, that’s because of the pandemic.  We had a trip to Japan planned for March but had to cancel.  We were planning on celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary there.  The reason we initially thought we had to cancel is because our layover was in China.  Little did we know that we wouldn’t be able to even leave the country.  We planned a series of back up trips that all fell through, of course.  Then we booked airfare…

    Road Trip Outfit

      TOP: H&M  |  SHORTS: Target  |  SCARF: H&M  |  CARDIGAN: Forever 21  |  SNEAKERS: Target             This past two days were spent in Big Sur.  We drove to Monterey on Friday and got back home in L.A. on Saturday.  We left at 6am Friday just to ensure we had enough time to stop at all of the fun places. We have been several times before so it was plenty of time for us.  If you have never been, I recommend spending at least 3 days on this trip, especially if you are going to stop at State Parks.  I might do another post with…

    New Home Decor: Part 4

    SWAN PLANTER: Rite Aid           I found this swan planter at the drug store.  It was on sale and I couldn’t pass it up because it’s so cute!  I really didn’t need it, just wanted it.  WALL HOOK: Target           I saw this online at Target and thought it would be so perfect to hang near the door.  We hang our keys and Luca’s (my dog) leash and harness on it.  It’s really cute and convenient.   BASKET: Home Goods           I really needed something to hold all of Luca’s toys.  I wanted a basket but something that…

    The Perfect Sundress

      DRESS: Pink Rose  |  SUNGLASSES: Zero UV (similar)  |  BAG: Coach  |  SANDALS: Forever 21           Today I wore this cute yellow dress.  We just went to the dog park and ran some errands.  It’s super comfortable and really nice for summer.  I’ve been wanting a dress that is casual but not too boring.  I came across this one at T.J. Maxx and it was on sale for only $10.  I love a good clearance find! The little floral print is super cute too.  If you are looking for a similar one I recommend checking T.J. Maxx or H&M because they have many options for…

    Places to Visit in Southern California

              I’ve compiled a list of places that I think would be interesting to visit around me.  These are all places that I haven’t been to before.  I love getting out and exploring as much as I can but Southern California just has so much to see.  I know there are tons more that should be on this list but these are the ones I could easily think of.  If you live here or are visiting sometime, you should look into them.  If you have been to any, let me know how what you thought.  I couldn’t really include photos because I haven’t been to take…

      TOP: Freshman 1996  |  SHORTS: Target  |  NECKLACE: Shein  |  BAG: Coach  |  SNEAKERS: Target  |  SUNGLASSES: Zero UV  |  EARRINGS: Local Eclectic            I’m sure a lot of people had a bit of a strange Independence Day this year.  I did too.  I normally go to the beach or on a boat and see a big fireworks display, but not this year.  All of the beaches in Southern California were closed because of Covid.  It was a real struggle finding ways to celebrate and have fun.  Since I don’t really have friends or family in California to celebrate with it was just me, my husband, and puppy.…
