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! πŸ˜‰ 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?

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.

EVERYTHING IS AWESOME! Well maybe not everything, but Lego games definitely are! Although I love a wide range of games consisting of anything from World of Warcraft to Tomb Raider; there is nothing like a fun, light-hearted multi-player game. Some of my favorites include Mario games and Super Smash but these days Lego games are my go to for fun nights of game playing. Didn’t you know that all 22 year old girls love to play Lego games while having Mike’s and Oreos.
