Cactus Chic

Today in SoCal I felt a surge fo Summer come straight at me. There was a slightly dryer feel in the air today. The wind was blowing a sweet warm breeze and I just couldnt help the urge to drink water and Iced tea. I mean it could have just been the fact that I was drinking last night for ST. Patricks day or that I wore all black today for work. Either way I really liked the feeling that was coming from the warm weather.

I believe that weather can change a persons mood drastically. There is a term called S.A.D. Seasonal Adjustment Disorder: a person who is deeply affected by the weather season to season. Whenever there is a change in weather where I live in Socal everyone notices immediatly and it either makes them happy when its hot, or sad/angry when it is cold or raining.

Living in Oc you see many Cacti in the front yards of homes or in parking lots. I was inspired by the colors of the Cactus garden in my yard and made an outfit based around it.

This is what I would be seen wearing if I were in Santa Fe or just hanging out in Santa Barbara at the missions.
*have you ever been inspired by something you saw in nature? Sometimes that is where you can find the best color combinations that came together naturally.

Claremont Village

My mom and I have been going to Claremont forever now, and if you follow this blog than you know it too! It's a cute town that's near the foothills, has colleges, food, beer and cute shops to wonder in. 

We decided to take Loki with us that day, and it was so damn hot...is this the hottest summer in a while? Or do I just forget the prior years...eaither way it was on fire in Claremont that day. 

We stumbled upon a taco shack that was undeniably cute! I'm working on finding the name of it, I can't seem to find it on any listing.
Over by the restroom by the taco shop there was the wood csrbed donkey so we had to take pics with it! Poor Loki was so hot that day!

A few things I do that make me feel like me

I start work in two hours so that means I have just enough time to start writing a blog post. Its been an inspiring week and I feel like there are signs from all over the universe guiding me into the right direction. I have had some meaningful time spent alone as well as with other people. I'm trying to have "more fun" and not worry so much about the little things. A few weeks ago I saw a psychic and she told me a ton of things, it was super strange to feel so vulnerable and unsure if what she was saying was true or not. 

The things she said that made me think... Ill be a mother, not now but in a few years. That I will be a successful Business woman, because I have vision and drive. That I have a dark spirit following me, That I want to be happy but that I only will be if I let whatever happened to me in my past go free.
As you can see it was pretty intense, full of tears and I was scared, but I knew that she was right because for a long time I had been unhappy and it was…

Village at La Floresta Walking Tour

Hi y'all it's been a few weeks since the opening of the new shopping center in Brea "Village at La Floresta" and I've finally had some time to share my experience and photos that I took that day!

As some of you may know, this new shopping center has been in the works for a few years now and is part of a whole new community of new custom homes and even a retirement home as well as a swimming club all under the umbrella of La Floresta, a master planned community.

One of the big draws for this new community is the fact that they had a whole foods as part of their shopping centers new tenants, and us crazy people in North oc have been having to go out to Tustin to get our fix of pre-peeled oranges and lemon infused water, I kid...lol do people really buy that crap anyway? Wenever I go it's usually to buy something fun from the beauty section or the salad bar!!! Yum!!!

When I went out to see the new location a few weeks ago I went in on the opening day! Crazy I t…
