I’ve decided I want to make this more of a journal of the days I would most like to remember. Days always seem to fade into the next when all you do is work & worry about staying afloat in California. I’m going to try to live more freely. I want to share my life with you all through photos & remind you to admire the little things in life.

Yesterday, Levi & I decided to have a beach day in Malibu. We packed up all the essentials including my new lil Sundae bikini but I forgot water because I’m the absolute worst at drinking water 😅
Before we headed out, we had to stop at Alfred Coffee to get an oat milk latte, which is what happiness is made of. I’m definitely convinced & obsessed.
After we were properly caffeinated, we headed out to Zuma beach in Malibu, a place I had always seen photos of but never truly got to enjoy. We laid out on the beach together for a few hours in the sunlight, then ran, head on, into the waves coming in. They were so strong I couldn’t even stand & I definitely fell quite a few times. Sand everywhere 😭 just everywhere. But it was so worth it!!

After Zuma, we headed down the coast to Malibu Farm. A soy caramel latte for me & an old fashioned for Levi. We always end up sharing anyways so it’s the best of both worlds.
I’m happy I live here. I just need to remember that life is made up of the moments when you’re not working & worrying, when you’re free. I’ll cherish running into the waves with Levi forever. ♥️

Joshua Tree

A few weeks back, a photographer, from back home in New Mexico, reached out to me & my boy, Levi. She happened to be staying out in Joshua Tree in the cutest little airbnb! Joshua Tree is only around a two hours away, so of course, we made the drive out so we could shoot! I had worked with Beth Wells many times before in New Mexico, and she is definitely one of my favorites! Her vibe is so golden & lovely. I love to get lost on both her personal instagram & her photography account!

Here are the photos from our little collaboration with her.

My Favorite Things about Fall this Year

Chilly mornings when the sky is grey & everywhere except for under the covers with Levi is not anywhere I want to be. Slow weekend mornings, waking up next to him, still sleeping, and knowing that this is the best my life has ever been. I can’t wait to see where my life will go from here.

Pumpkins of every color decorating every grocery store, awaiting Halloween; pumpkin carving, hot chocolate at midnight, scary movies, vegan pumpkin pie, running through haunted houses absolutely terrified but not admitting it, full moons on Halloween night, just Halloween in general.

Afternoon snacks in bed. Trader Joe’s currently has pumpkin cinnamon rolls (they’re vegan & so are the normal cinnamon rolls in a tube) They’re so lovely & never last long. I love baking them just for the smell of cinnamon & cardamom throughout the house.

The best drink of the fall obviously contains a ton cinnamon & spice. I found the most perfect vanilla spice tea to enjoy every afternoon.

Fall is my favorite time of year. I can’t wait for the weather to cool down more so I can shop for beanies, sweaters, candles & everything else good in the world.

OOTM: September Outfits

California never gets too cold during the fall & before I moved, I was certain I would never miss the 60 degree weather New Mexico has to offer this time of year. Los Angeles was hit by 100 degree weather these past couple weeks. I think everyone has been melting, not to mention my air conditioner in my house decided to stop working. Anyways, I miss the cold, I miss wearing sweaters, hoodies & beanies!! I long for a rainy morning spent at a coffee stop window, looking outside at the greyness.

Also, mid-way through September, I decided I wanted to have black hair for Halloween. I never have had such a dark color, and I almost never let dye anywhere near my hair. But when life gives you lemons (aka Pravana calls you up to model for them & they give you rainbow colored hair) your opinions change a lil.

Anyways, here are 5 of my favorite outfits that I wore at this awkward time of year.

No Thanks

Weekends make me so happy. Waking up late, afternoon coffee & an excuse to bring out the laid-back pieces I’ve been dying over all week. I’ve been loving this No Thanks graphic Tee from Tees & Tank You along with this black denim skirt from Carmar denim. The two pieces together along with my matte black converse absolutely kill the weekend look.

Here are some photos from my coffee date with Levi this morning. We went to a new favorite in Silverlake, LA Mill Coffee Co. I am obsessed with their iced hemp milk latte! Anyways…

Museum of Ice Cream

Processed with VSCO with a5 presetBack when I lived in Albuquerque, Levi & I used to go to art shows quite often & I really do miss it. Though I am not quite up to date with all the art happenings in Los Angeles, as a girl & ice cream addict living in Los Angeles, of course I heard about the Museum of Ice Cream.

So many pretty pink Instagram posts, videos of people jumping in the sprinkle pool & raves about the ice cream snacks included in the museum. I finally decided I needed to get in on this treat. I attempted to find tickets but they were sold out everywhere I looked. I cut my losses & accepted that I would not be able to experience the museum in all of its glory. However, a few days later, Levi & I met up with some of our friends (@dailycoffeerun) & Whitney mentioned she had an extra ticket to go the next day. I have not been so excited in such a long time!!

Processed with VSCO with a9 preset

Because it is sold out & tickets are extremely illusive it seems, I wanted to share photos of the experience for my fellow art/ice cream addicts who could not find a ticket. So here we are! Treats included mint chocolate chip mochi ice cream, salted caramel ice cream from Salt & Straw, dark chocolate, gummy bears, chocolate chip cookie dough with charcoal in a mini cone & my favorite a strawberry pancake ice cream sandwich!!
