Another Day of Sun

One of my favorite things is visiting coastal cities. I love the beach, and every single coastal city has its own personality. Last weekend, I went to San Clemente with one of my best friends. San Clemente is known for its pier, its eclectic stores, and a tea stop affectionately known as Lav Lounge by the…

The Best Advice On Comparison

As humans, we are conditioned to compare ourselves to others. Watch and learn from others’ mistakes. Survival of the fittest. However, that’s not a healthy way to look at the world. Why are we stepping on one another to try to climb to the top? Why are we basing our day to day lives on…

(Attempted) Social Media Detox

3 Days. I didn’t use social media for 3 days. Now, before you roll your eyes and say something along the lines of Millenials these days, hear me out. I am well aware that social media is addicting, and there are studies that explain these negative effects. This post won’t be a lengthy explanation and…

2018 Goals

We’re almost a month into the new year, and that means reflecting and carrying out those resolutions you made back in December. For me, I’d rather call them goals – things that I’d like to accomplish in 2018. Not all of these goals have to be huge projects, some can just be things you’ve been…

Winter Favorites

This month, I’ve been wearing oversized sweaters and fuzzy socks, drinking candy cane green tea, eating my body weight in pastries and goodies, and watching Christmas movies. If it was socially acceptable to wear fuzzy socks to work, I would do it, too. Tonight, my friend and I are going to an outdoor showing of…

Online Dating? No Thanks.

  With our lives run by our phones, it’s no shock how much our lives have turned digital, especially when it comes to dating. Societal pressures and the lack of meeting people organically has caused our generation to turn to dating apps. However, I’ve made a personal choice not to use dating apps. Maybe it’s the fact…

Sleepy Hallows

Happy Halloween witches! The one thing I love about Halloween is the challenge of making a costume out of clothing I already own. This year, I decided to go for Waldo and was greeted by, “I Found Waldo!” by my friends, which I deem a success. In need of a super last minute costume? Dig…

The Next Thing On My List

I read a novel the other day called The Next Thing On My List by Jill Smolinski. It was about a girl who died in a car accident before her thirtieth birthday, and the main character, a work acquaintance finds a list of things she wants to do before turning the big 3-0. Since the…

Monday Reminder

Just a little Monday reminder to kick this week’s butt! Whatever you’re dreaming up, you can and will accomplish it! Put that work in and you will see results! *For me, I am reminding and following through with my fitness goals and not getting discouraged about the hunt for a full-time job! So I’m applying for jobs that pique my interest…

Winter Day Among Succulents

Earlier this week, my friend and I decided to grab some coffee and visit the Dana Point Nursery to look at all the cute flowers and succulents. It was rainy, cold winter day, but it was so nice just to wander around, smelling all the flowers and imagining buying all our favorites. Take an hour…

November Inspirations

Currently crushing on the holiday season this year more than ever. Last week, I went up to the mountains in Utah (Read more here!) and it snowed, thereby completing the winter wonderland mood I was wishing for in California. And then the past couple days, it has been raining in California, so I’ve been sitting under…

Fundamentals

I know you’ve been bombarded with GO Vote! social media posts, phone calls and advertisements today. But honestly, today was the first election I was able to vote, and I felt the heavy weight and responsibility of voting, but also the pride of making a difference. I spent all day on Monday researching the different CA…
