long beach.

 Hello loves,

What better way is there to spend your weekend than exploring only the best places in and around another city?
(Psssst… Helpful hint: hitting up all the popular places during Super Bowl Sunday is the absolute best time to do so! No crowds! #Winning)

The city of choice this post was Long Beach! First place that I had been dying to go to is this gorgeous coffee shop that I had seen all over Instagram and had some major wall envy for.

The iced latte was so refreshing on such a blistery warm day (sorry all you people where winter is still in full swing!). Steelhead Coffee is the name of this gem.

Now that we were all pumped up on caffeine and ready visit all the cute boutiques and vintage stores in the area…

There are literally  vintage stores designed for us DIY folk!!! I left feeling so inspired and may have picked up a few items to DIY myself. Trust me… I will be back soon (once I am feeling super inspired by Pinterest).


Belmont Shores is a fun little street with a ton of eateries and boutiques that are just SO CUTE! These pictures speak for themselves. And yes, ice cream cupcakes do exist! Santa is real!!! I must go back again and try one real soon…

Safe to say, there is one artsy city that I have yet to not like! So many places to see, a day was hardly enough.

Until next time…



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..
