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 has no design style...lol poor dad. We still
love you!!


After perusing around town we headed back home to start working on rearranging furniture and making the back room habitable for our house guests all the way from Australia! My mom pulled out a great book called Sun Country Style and we got to working. The books a few years old but it's full of bohemian vintage inspiration for decorating the home. I posted a few pics below for you to see for yourself.






After we were done I took a few pics of our progress, here is the bench seat, bay window that we decorated with throw pillows and a native American blanket from a cute store in Claremont called the Grove vintage.



Alright now, I have to get gping, I hope you enjoyed what I had to share today! Peace xoxo

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…
