HELLO THERE! It’s been much too long.  Travis and I went to Santa Barbara for the Fourth of July weekend and we had such a GREAT time.  I thought I’d share the pictures I took and give some recommendations. I hope you enjoy! 🙂

Huntington Library of Pasadena

Hi Friends! I hope you all had a great Super Bowl Sunday this past weekend. Mine was fantastic because I spent it at the Huntington Library and NOT watching football (my least favorite sport ever). If you live in Southern California and haven’t visited, you are really missing out! Here are some of my photos from the day.

Often times I will root for a villain just as much as I root for a heroine because there is usually more than meets the eye. Maybe said villain really has a heart of gold after all?!

However, there are some villains that are just so evil, so sick, and SO hateful you rejoice when they finally get what’s coming to them. Disney has put out some pretty nasty villains for kids movies but who really is the baddest of them all? Let’s take a look!

Summer kind of sucks as an adult. It’s not like you have any time off and it’s just hot.  One of my favorite parts of summer is definitely the movies. I could go to the movies three nights a week and my life would be better for it. However, this summer I was overall disappointed with what Hollywood had to offer.  Also, I really don’t know why I keep using My Little Pony gifs as my featured images. I don’t even watch the show… they are just SO cute. That being said, here are my top five favorite summer movies of 2014.

The most wonderful time of the year is approaching!!! I’m referring to fall and winter in case you are unsure of what the most wonderful time of the year is. I realize not everyone appreciates the true magic of the season but it is indeed magical. Unfortunately, that also means going back to school for a lot of people. The best part about that is back to school shopping, one of the few parts of my teenage years that I miss. Here are my top ten “back to school must have’s”!

When most people think of Southern California they think of Los Angeles and freeways but believe it or not there are LOTS of beautiful places for walks and moderate hikes. We are actually surrounded by nature! I live in Huntington Beach and the following are my five favorite nature trails/hikes located within two hours of me. Check out AllTrails.com for exact locations and maps as well as the level of difficulty. Don’t worry, none on my list are above moderate! 😉 If you are a seasoned hiker, this probably isn’t this list for you!

It’s been a crazy week but it’s Thursday which means that tomorrow is Friday! Yay! On a day to day basis I usually wear minimal make up and if I do wear more I always gravitate toward just eye make up. In honor of Friday though I thought I’d share in detail what I wear occasionally as a more dramatic make up that’s still simple and classic.

Donut Theme Gift Box

Good afternoon! My two best friends’ birthdays are during summer so I thought it’d be fun to show you what I got them this year. I decided for both of them to do a themed gift box. First up is Danielle! We both love donuts (who doesn’t!) but she has been really healthy in her eating and exercising habits these past six months and has pretty much avoided them. So I went with a non-edible donut theme. Seriously, is there anything better than a donut?

The end of summer is approaching and with that comes a multitude of weddings every weekend. I still haven’t figured out why everyone loves labor day weddings so much but such is life and we will will suffer the heat together. This list is inspired by Possessionista’s blog post on what to wear to a wedding featuring affordable dresses from Lulus.com. My list is compiled of dresses from NastyGal.com all under $125.

I grew up on Disney and have a love for it that no other set of films can come close to during my early childhood. For me, Disney wasn’t just a set of films. It was a way of life. You didn’t just WATCH a princess. You became a princess and went to Disneyland where the other princesses lived. Of coarse, I then turned into a tomboy and you couldn’t pay me to wear a princess costume even though I still loved Disney. The difference was I probably would have rather dressed up as a Super Saiyan by the time I was eight. One question I love to ask people is “Who is your favorite prince?” and the most common answers have always been either Prince Charming or Prince Eric. Ironically, these are two of my least favorite princes. So lets take a journey down Disney of days past and discover who are truly the best of the best when it comes to the princes. Or at least in my humble opinion. You do you and keep on loving Charming if he’s your cup of tea.
