I called my friend Haley and asked her if she wanted to go on a spontaneous road trip with me. Without hesitation she obliged. We had no fixed plans, no itinerary, no set time when to arrive or leave. We had a place to stay, and a car, but the only thing we had was each other-as cheesy as it may sound.
As much as I wanted to make a plan, I realized what I really needed was a roadtrip with no itinerary- no stress. I don’t think there’s anything that connects people more than traveling together. It was quite wonderful to explore a new place with a friend, especially when one of those places is a remote area of Northern California.
Point Reyes National Seashore goes on for miles- and I mean MILES. There’s not too many clear signs, and no cell service. Lots of lovely wildlife to admire- and we went right before sunset. We drove until the gas meter read EMPTY and we laughed about every sketchy scenario we could have possibly encountered. Oddly, I had never felt so free and relaxed to be in such a remote location. The seashore that rolled along for miles had enormous waves which crashed down, beautiful country roads, rolling hills, and 2 ladies completely lost.
Somewhere between lost and found. It was everything.
For the Love of Travel is an amazing travel group started by my friend Tara that plans out weekend getaways with the travel group. What could be better than a weekend away in Paso Robles Wine Tasting?
Nothing is right. It was one of the best weekends I have had in a long time and the best part was meeting new friends. The weekender trips have the itinerary including meals planned out for the group, so it made getting to connect with one another that much more fun. The convenience of also having everything planned out was a huge plus. I’ve added a video from the weekend, xoxo:

With an intent to stay true to myself, I choose to post outfits of inspiration that are not found at retail stores. I love 70s style, late 60’s and find that I am constantly dressing in that style. Usually thrifted, sometimes found on ebay, I just want to remind ya’ll that you don’t need to spend a million dollars on an outfit and that brands do make beautiful clothes but sometimes your best outfits can be found 2nd hand.
Keep a lookout on my recommendations for flea markets in the LA area next week, can’t wait to share my favorite spots with you <3

I was always a bit envious of those who could achieve that “peace of mind.” It seems silly to say, but I wanted to do or try anything that would help me to achieve that goal. Ultimately, I achieved peace of mind through yoga, and have become stronger both mentally and physically.
Free People Movement held an amazing event that inspired people to get outdoors. A hike by REI and yoga flow by Core Power, they brought together over 150 people in Griffith Park to share 1 thing: the love for movement and being active.
I’m no yogi or do I name myself to be, but I love that Free People inspired this many of us to come practice together in the great outdoors. Yoga helps me to focus on one thing at a time during the practice which I therefore carry outside of my practice. Each time I complete a yoga class, I feel more mindful of all my actions during and therefore following. Yoga helps me slow down and set my intentions, helping me feel calm and clear minded. Thank you Free People for this opportunity, this chance to feel the power of movement through yoga.
Special thank you to Core Power, REI, Sweet Leaf, and Sun Life Organics!
