So, it’s probably no secret that I live in Orange County and like to partake in anything type of adventure that involves booze. You can usually find me toting a 40oz beer in my purse through a park or on a hike. But I have grown super fond of wine lately, and have even made my way to a few wineries. And I have officially … Continue reading South OC’s best winery!
I can’t believe I have lived in Orange County for a year and a half without making a guide to the incredible beaches here at our disposal. I mean, most of my weekends consist of beach trips, and I am blessed to live within walking distance to Doheny State Beach. I wanted to keep this post within a realistic geographical region to where you could … Continue reading Favorite Beaches in Orange County, CA!
I have always loved finding beautiful spots that are lesser known to the public. Any spot that is somewhat sketchy or hard to locate- I’m down for. A few months ago, I spent a day in Malibu trying to locate a secret swing, and the challenge of it all transformed into an odd hobby for me- finding off-the-grid and super unique vistas/lookouts/spots (particularly, ones with … Continue reading Secret Swings of San Diego!
Today we ventured over to the beautiful Historic Downtown San Juan Capistrano for the first time and boy, it did not disappoint. First stop: Hennessey’s. We decided it’d be best to start our day with a drink (a nice Amber on draft for me and an Old Fashioned for Austin). It was so calm and breezy on the patio, it was perfect. Next, we headed … Continue reading A Day in Historic Downtown San Juan Capistrano.

So first off…. any restaurant that has a neon sign is automatically appealing to me, so I knew from the get-go that I was going to love this place. The style and … Continue reading You, Me, Matcha.
This has been one of the most rejuvenating, peaceful weekends I’ve had in a long time. On Saturday, we finally visited a beach we had been passing by on the PCH for months- and boy, was it worth it! I’m still not entirely clear what this beach’s name is- Crystal Cove? It’s in northern Laguna. Anyway- it’s gorgeous. We used our state park pass (one … Continue reading Another beautiful Southern California Saturday.
Skip this paragraph if all you care about is knowing how to find the swing. I will get to that, it’s the point of this post.. but it’s been so long since I’ve written on here that I feel like I need to do a little catch-up. My last post on this blog was on August 3rd of 2017. A lot has happened since then, … Continue reading Sneaking into a religious retreat to find a secret cliffside swing..
Today I decided to take charge of my happiness despite loneliness. I am still adjusting to being away from home, not being able to visit my family and childhood home whenever I want, and not being steps away from my best friend’s and roommates at all times. It’s Monday, Austin is off at work (which hopefully I will be doing soon, finger’s crossed I receive … Continue reading Little victories.
