That one really long road trip…

Hello loves,
 I feel like it has been practically forever since the last time I posted! So sorry, you know how life just sneaks up on you. I was able to go to a place with the most beautiful and breath-taking scenery it’s almost as though life slowed down.  I was able to renew my appreciation for the beauty that this world offers.

 I know that even a picture couldn’t capture all of the grandeur… Which is why I created a little YouTube channel and my very first Vlog so that you can be right there with me! Yes, you heard me right…. So go and watch that Vlog of mine which I have linked right Here! Please don’t be too hard on me though, it was my very first one!  

Sometimes life just starts moving way too fast and all the days, months, and years blend together. It’s almost as if the days pass by quicker with each passing moment and the clock starts ticking faster. This week-long trip to Zion and Bryce National Parks in Utah definitely helped me take some time to contemplate and realize that our lives go only as fast as we make them.  It’s our outlook that molds how much we love life. Bryce was truly one of the most breathtaking places I have been, it makes you feel so small and you can’t help but ponder upon the history of such a place.   

As soon as we arrived, I could definitely tell that I was no longer in California! Everything from the weather, rocks, mountains, and most importantly.. Lack of ocean! I fell in love with some of the quaint shops in the small town right outside the park.   I seem to have caught the adventure bug, I can’t wait to keep exploring and see what other amazing sights this world has to offer.

The city never sleeps. 

   
Hello my lovelies,

Summer is now in full swing, and with summer comes this wandering bug that seems to take over and make you want to explore every cranny on this earth! I have never spent that much time in Long Beach before, but I happened to have friends there who were just the most amazing tour guides. I was surprised by how rich the culture is within this city and all the sights there are to see!     

The downtown area was hustling and bustling with people and tons of fun eateries and stores. But really though, could these flowers be set up any better?! Obsessed! 

 
And.. you know me. Whenever I go someplace new, of course I need to try a fun new coffee shop! No, I’m not too sorry for my obsession with coffee shop hopping. There’s something seriously addicting about going to coffee shops wherever I happen to be in the proximity of. In this case, the lovely Rose Park Roasters!   

 I had never heard of this spot before, but apparently Fingerprints is the scene for all you music-lovers out there! From records to books they got it all. It seemed like one of those places you could just hang out for a while at. Better yet, live music exists there every so often.

 
  
If you are going to have the honor of being around the area in the evening, going up to the skyline is a big MUST. From the glistening lights of LA to the fireworks exploding all the way at Disneyland, the view is amaze!   

Until next time..

Xoxo,

Lena
