Hello everyone!

I feel like recently I’ve discovered that there are so many more cute places out there than I realized (which really excites me!). I’m constantly on this journey to find nifty places that spark my interest visually. Exploring, wandering, and taking in new sights. Perhaps you could just refer to me as the forever wandering gypsy!


“Eat Dessert, Be a Monster”

Am I the only one who gets major DIY inspo from all the places I go to? I am constantly looking for new things to try and make, so I make sure to stay aware of my surroundings. However, the question is a matter of being able to find the time to actually be able to do all the DIY’s I have on my list… as well as finding the room to put everything.


Our first stop of the day was to this little gem which is such a cute place that offers the deadly combination of milk teas and macaroon ice cream sandwiches.

I loved the interior covering the walls of this place (major props for making it brick!). We definitely enjoyed sipping on some jasmine milk teas while admiring the monster shaped macaroon ice cream sandwiches.

Can we just talk about their logo for a minute? I find it to be absolutely adorable.

This little mason jar was really not so little but super perfect. Probably the friendliest monster I have seen if I do say so myself.

To end the day, we just had to make a stop at J Galt in Newport Beach. I have been dying to go there ever since I discovered their Instagram as they are a standalone sister store of Brandy Melville (Needless to say, I’m a little obsessed). I’ve known about this place for months, but it was not until now that I finally made it out there. Funny enough, it wasn’t even the clothes that lured me to this place. Rather, it was the amazing decor and cute plants… ironic… but not really I suppose if you know me.

Especially cacti and succulents, they are just so intricately detailed! I like love the little potted gardens that seem to be popping up everywhere. I’m not sure what the correct term for it is, but I’ll go with the urban garden. Even though this whole trend may have originated in a concrete jungle, I adore the look of it and there is something super appealing about it to me!

I think I’ll keep exploring.

Until next time…




Old Town Feels


Hello loves! Is it just me or are rustic places with that vintage look the absolute cutest? I’m not exactly sure how to pinpoint it, but what I do know is that there is something special about feeling like you’re a part of a place that has been around for longer than you have (aka a nice way of saying OLD!). All the memories that have been made there, the conversations and laughs that have been shared. It’s also interesting how you see things in a different light when you aren’t just briskly walking by, but actually take the time to enjoy beauty for what it is.

I also paired it with my Brandy Melville shorts which are super easy to dress up or down. They’re basically pajama shorts but socially acceptable to wear outside (phew!) and are a basic essential piece to have.

I finished this outfit with a white medium length crop top which has some detailing in the front. Gotta love those details..they keep things interesting. 🙂


Sometimes you just need to step away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I love taking that time to slow down… and I feel like that is exactly what most of my weekends consist of!


So… I may or may not have gone a little nuts inside of this beautiful new place that I have been wanting to go to see for quite some time.

Every single thing about the decor inside was perfect! From the chalkboard walls, to the sparkly lit patio to the picture perfect furniture… I can just go on and on.

Um, can I just move in? Okay maybe I’m being a little over-enthusiastic, but I truly enjoyed the atmosphere inside.


Yes, please. I think the pictures give you quite a good idea of what exactly was inside those great walls. And to think there’s more that I wasn’t able to capture on film!


Well the day was beautiful and I enjoyed taking the time to slow down and take all these sights in. I hope you enjoyed coming along on this journey with me. You were there in spirit, at least.

Join me next time too, yeah?
