    A Quick Visit to Grand Teton National Park

              This post is the first of many from my trip to Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Canada.  I don’t know if this area of the U.S. has a name… Every map I look at seems to call it something different.  I’ll just call it the Rocky Mountain region.  On this trip we (me, my husband, and my dogs) visited Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Glacier, Banff, Waterton Lakes, and Kootenay National Parks.             The first park we visited was Grand Teton.  We were shorted a few hours there because of an issue with the rental car.  We were supposed to spend most of…

    Best Spot in Laguna: Heisler Park

    DRESS: By the River  |  BAG: H&M  |  SUNGLASSES: Glik’s  |  SANDALS: Loeffler Randall           Surely I have mentioned this park in the past, because I love it so much.  I’m talking about Heisler Park in Laguna Beach.  It’s pretty much my favorite spot in Laguna.  Obviously, the actual beach is my favorite spot, but I mean aside from that.  It’s an ocean-front park that is based on the cliffs.  There are a few other parks connected to it as well.  What’s so cool about this park is all of the paths and sitting areas.  It’s an amazing spot to chill out and look at the…

    Back at Niguel Botanical Preserve

    DRESS: DRA Los Angeles (T.J. Maxx)  |  SANDALS: Loeffler Randall  |  BAG: H&M  |  SUNGLASSES: Glik’s  |  EARRINGS: ASOS           I went back to the Niguel Botanical Preserve last weekend.  It’s located in Laguna Niguel, in Orange County.  It’s a beautiful garden that is a part of a public park.  It’s completely free to enter and alway has plenty of parking.  I love visiting gardens so it’s not surprising that I went back.  It’s about an hour away from where I live but I wanted to do something a bit special.  I love this garden because there are so many paths that just spiral up a…

    3rd Street Promenade, Santa Monica

      TOP: Target  |  SHORTS: Target  |  SANDALS: Walmart  |  BACKPACK: Sole Society           I feel like I hear a lot of people talk about The Grove, shopping mall.  It’s located in L.A.  There are so many good malls and shopping areas in the Los Angeles area that are so much better so I wanted to talk about a few of them.  I recently went back to 3rd Street Promenade in Santa, Monica which is a pretty good shopping street and mall.  There are some others as well but the Grove pales in comparison because there aren’t too many good stores, it’s always very crowded, and…

    Visiting Descanso Gardens

    DRESS: Betsy Johnson  |  SANDALS: Walmart  |  SUNGLASSES: Glik’s  |  BACKPACK: Sole Society           If you live in or are visiting Southern California you may want to check out one of the many botanical gardens that are here.  This weekend I visited Descanso Gardens for the first time.  It’s located in La Canada Flintridge, North of Los Angeles.  It’s $15 per person to enter and parking is free.  It’s a large garden that is divided up into separate spaces, depending on the type of plant.  It’s very similar to most botanical gardens that I have been to.  They also have a lot of art installations and…

    Smocked Pinafore Dress

    DRESS: Free People  |  SANDALS: Walmart  |  T-SHIRT: H&M           I found this dress recently and knew I had to have it.  I love pinafore dresses and smocking individually, but together it’s extra special.  I’ve never seen a dress like this.  It just feels so unique.  I think I need to hem it a bit after looking back at these photos, but It’s still so cute.  I wore it today in Solvang, CA.  My family took a little drive to Solvang and spent a lot of the day there.  I feel like this dress fit right in.  I love to dress for the destination.  If you…

    Floral Print Mom Jeans

    JEANS: H&M  |  TOP: H&M  |  SNEAKERS: Puma  |  NECKLACE: Bauble Bar  |  BAG: Coach           I love these jeans! They are white floral mom jeans, if you can’t tell.  I needed jeans recently for work and could not pass these up.  They are from H&M.  While I am writing this post, they are still available in store.  I paired them with this cropped top, also from H&M.  I love the all white look.  I match my dog.  I got the top the day before I took these photos.  I have been seeing a lot of these tight cropped tops around lately and the style is…

    Floral Spring Top

    JEANS: H&M  |  TOP: Japan  |  BAG: Primark  |  SANDALS: Walmart           I was in need of some new tops that I can wear to work recently so I went shopping.  I found this floral sprig top at T.J. Maxx.  The brand is Japna.  It’s a little on the small side but it was only $12 and was on sale so I got it.  I’m so glad that I did because the back is super stretchy so it’s actually really comfortable.  I love the print as well.  It’s super bright and I always love florals.  Obviously it is spring so there is no better time to…

    The Getty Villa

    DRESS: Blu Pepper  |  SHOES: Lulu’s  |  BAG: Coach           Hello! It’s been a little while since I have written a blog post.  I got a new job and I’ve been really busy.  Two weeks ago me and my husband finally visited the Getty Villa for the first time.  I’ve been wanting to check it out since moving to L.A. over 4 years ago.  We have yet to visit the Getty Center, which is a different place.  Both are museums, but different types.  I loved seeing all of the old artifacts.  Some of them were so incredible and just shocking.  My favorite thing to see were…

    New Pomeranian Puppy!

              About 3 weeks ago me and my husband decided to bring a new Pomeranian puppy into the family.  We have one other dog, also a Pomeranian.  We had been wanting another dog basically since we got our first dog.  He hates being alone and we wanted a little friend for him. We both love Pomeranians.  They are such cute, spunky, and smart dogs.  They are just so adorable.  There are so many perks to having small dogs.  I grew up with big dogs and didn’t really realize how amazing it is to have a small one.             We named our…
