summer wanderlust {venice canals}

Ah, sweet summertime. It’s just around the corner, and man has it got me day dreaming. The longer days and golden light sure do make everything feel more romantic, do they not? I’m deep in the undertaking of planning our European trip at the end of the summer. We’ll be flying into Paris for a […]

supermoon, supergirl {+ a giveaway}

This summer marks 4.5 years of living in Los Angeles, 4.5 years of living in the same apartment on the west side (#represent). This fact doesn’t appear astounding on its own, but what if I told you that this is the longest I have ever lived in one place of residence? What if I told […]

why you should go camping – and how to do it {angeles national forest}

Ahh, the great outdoors. No better way to reset than spending a weekend in the forest with no cell service but instead with sun rays, hammock naps, and slow mornings. They sure can do the body good. I’ve been pretty open about my anxiety, about evaluating the possible triggers (if any) when my nerves are high and addressing […]

life is effort – and so is your happy {spring gardening}

“Life is effort, and I’ll stop when I die.” – Jerry Smith, Rick and Morty Anyone else watch Rick and Morty? I can’t get over how ridiculously absurd and hilarious (albeit often gross) the show is. If you aren’t familiar, it’s an animated series (for adults) following the adventures of a kid and his scientist grandfather as they […]

explore la : nice coffee

Y’all know how much I love my coffee. In the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening with dessert. Popping into cafés when I travel, meeting girlfriends for a latte date, reading with a cup of joe. At this point, it’s not about the caffeine but instead about the warmth with which it feels my heart, like […]
