Venice Venture

As I continue my venture from Culver City to Venice Beach I realized that LA can seem so far but so close. In my previous post I had a comment from Dina, writer of My Superfluities who resides in Virginia. Her comment mentioned that she had recognized the icon Knotts Berry Farm Skyline! A comment such as hers made me re think my views on "how long it takes to get to LA". The fact that someone who lives across the country commented on the fact that they recognized something that is part of my backyard was an eye opener. 

So friends lets start the second leg of our mini LA adventure continuing in Venice Beach! 


The crew was groggy and the sky was too, it was time to fill up on some cafe espresso and lattes from Espresso Cielo (also located in Palm Springs)! All of us being from Coffee Shop backgrounds agreed that this one was a winner, if not better than Inteligensia! 


Rad skaters! 

I was drawn to the Free People window display . Artsy, organic, feminine. 


Super hot model guy was posing away next to this super gangster mural at Venice Beach! He reminded me of Skeet Ulrich! SO 90's SO HOT! 

This is what it looked like walking down the boardwalk...


Loved the couple to the left. Venice beach always makes me think of Xanadu! This time there were less roller skates and more skaters though. 

The guy on the right must be a model, or I must be a great photographer! 


Three fourths of the group. Katrina refused to walk on the sand. This is why she looks like she is a giant floating person above Leigh and Nate who were walking below. 

Dont ask what the robot face is for...Im not sure. Im guessing it was a garage door opener? Wildflour Pizza had a cool store front, love the bright yellow, really bold choice. Super cool window display using spools of yarn! And yeah those are some huge binoculars! 

Hope you had fun on my photo adventure of Venice and Santa Monica! These are my fav posts, sharing photos about more than what I wore...or what to buy...just cool experiences.

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! 
Enjoying chipa and salsa at the taco shack.




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…
