GLOOMY DAY & TJ MAXX FINDS!

I felt the change, it's always the end of August and early September that I feel like Fall is creeping it's way in. It's in your coffee, your clothing stores and all over pinterest...we must face the inevitable, FALL IS COMING! The weather today was quite fitting, gloomy and a tad cooler, like a day at the beach in Spring. During my typical Coffee run I made a stop at TJ Maxx and was quite pleased with their BASIC BITCH selection :0 

See for yourself!

This DKNY wrap top was cozy and I loved the berry/wine color! It was a bit pricey for what it was so I passed it along its way. And don't mind my stupid look on my face, should have cropped it out LOL


This sexy top by Lily White is perfect to throw on under a sweater or Leather Jacket and under 9 bucks SCORE!


This jacket was amazing and under 20 bucks! The brand is called BCNU 


I really wanted a marled grey Sweater, this one by Poof was cute, but it kept rolling open and was itchy on the skin pass! 
This top from Kim &am…

Palm Springs Summer Vacay

What better way to kick off the start of Summer than a trip to Palm Springs! It's only about an hour and a half drive from OC and it seems like a world away because of the lax desert vibes. If you're like me and think of Vegas and run the other way this is a place for you then ;) I mapped out my two and a half days to have a bit of everything to do since I knew we would want to live it up because we hardly get to go out the two of us! First off we stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel, which was super cool looking but seemed to have lots of hidden fees :/ price you pay to stay at a resort I guess...oh well...onto the fun stuff!!!
We set off to the desert in the morning and arrived at Morongo casino before 10 am! I've never actually been here before, but driven by the tall casino/hotel each and every time we pass into Palm Springs!. I found my fav slot machine (Sex and The City) and an Iced Latte and I was in the zone! After pressing buttons vicariously and not knowing what the he…

Summer Musings!

Yeah of course summers almost over and I'm just getting around to talking about it on here. This summer wasn't AMAZING or anything...but it was spent with family and friends so I cant complain. 
As usual it was gloomy in June, lots of clouds and walks to the coffee shop for their new cold brew coffee yum! I was counting down the days till mid June because I was going on my week long vacay from life/work/stress/life/stress/work you know... I'll be sharing more on that trip in a later post...

Basically I started my summer off by getting Loki a life vest! He's a boy but hot pink is just so much fun (and was the only one left in his size lol) he loves it as you can see. Many a day was spent by the pool or in it with a beer in hand and some relaxing world groove music in the background to tune out the sound of my anxious thoughts :0



Another favorite thing I did this summer was go for walks, weather on the trail or in the town I brought Loki with me and sometimes my crazy g…

Around Town & Decorating

Some summer days are best spent doing a whole lot of nothing & some decorating on the side. During the dog days of summer I spend time with my mom since she has a whole month and a half off...perks of being a teacher! So on a typical day Loki and I headed over to my moms house to run errands & eat lunch etc. 
A stop at the iconic fountain outside the Placentia Library was in order. I remember this day was too hot to bear being outside...but it was a pretty day nonetheless. By the way, did you know that the Placentia Library has a reading hour for kids that includes therapy dogs? I wanna GO!

Loki is always happy to be along for the ride! This little boy makes life so much more interesting. 
After running around the town we drove by these really cute trailer homes that had super cute yards. Since you know we're in a drought here in SoCal we all have no yards...just dirt and succulents. This yard was super cute and inspirational for my mom to show my dad,who in her opinion h…

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.




Sunday Funday in Downtown Anaheim

I'm pretty simple in some ways, I love coffee, looking at magical objects and eating flavorful food! One of my rare Sundays off I had nothing to do so I ventured off to Anaheim which is a town over and I brought the dog with me as my date because he loves to people watch with me.  

I went to center street promenade and decided it's time to try out Pour Vida, a latin fusion cafe. They had been doing construction all spring and I was drawn in by the decor and the fact that they sell TACOS! I've since been here a few more times, I've met the owner Jimmy and he is very nice and genuinely has a passion for his business! I say go try it!


There were people that came from all over to try this place and were loving it! I tried all of the tacos from the LAND and I loved the pineapple skirt steak! I was in love with the decor of the patio, the bench in the picture is handmade from cinder blocks and wood and the textile on that cushion is so cute!


Here's a little snippet of t…
