Rooted Vacation

cloudskayaksfenced inIt’s been a while, hasn’t it?

I’ve been home for a full week now and I only have one week left. I’ve been relaxing in the comforts of the home I grew up in. I’ve been really happy. I’m currently taking yoga classes at this amazing studio that only offers heated classes (ranging from vinyasa to power, and of course, bikram). I’m definitely seeing some results with my mood and fitness (even if I have bad days, I’m grateful I get to practice).

I spent a really great day trip with my family yesterday in Mendocino County. I wrote about this charming region in California in an article on Trekity, Four Secret Ways to Explore Mendocino County. Going there was high on my list of priorities to say the least.

The drive going there and the local sights were so beautiful. I am also convinced that just about everything is much more beautiful when things are just barely waking up.

We went on a ride on the world famous Skunk Train, walked around Glass Beach, and went to see some historical artifacts at the Guest House Museum. I wish I got to stay for longer! Next time, I’m definitely going kayaking.

This is in no way a perfect expression of vrksasana. Don’t be fooled by my smile. I’m absolutely terrified of somehow falling into the ocean in this picture (which is something that would happen to me). The kid behind me was so brave. He was jumping and running around the rocks at Glass Beach as if he had spent his whole life there.

Anyway, thanks for reading! Until next time.

Thrift & Six Flags

August 1, 2013 § 4 Comments

I’ve had a busy couple of days trying to spend some time with my boyfriend before I head home for two weeks.

On Tuesday my boyfriend and I went thrifting at a local Saver’s. I got a couple of good things for under just $10!

thrifting The tan tank is from bebe and I thought it was so… sexy. The black long tank on the right is sadly not long enough to be a dress but I’ve been very inspired by Eat, Pray, Love lately so I bought it.

The black tank on the left has a really delicate lace detail in the middle of the neckline which makes it absolutely lovely and unique. The bright pink tank on the right is from Express and thought it would be perfect for yoga.

I also bought myself my first ever beanie! It is also the only California related paraphernalia that I own and I’m glad that it’s something as simple as a beanie.

The last thing I’ve accumulated from this week and is also my favorite thing is a watch that my boyfriend got me. I’m pretty sure I will treasure this baby forever.

Yesterday, I went to Six Flags Magic Mountain for the first time. It was really hot. Surprisingly, I’m not as jazzed about roller coasters as I used to be. Maybe I’m getting old…

Here’s what I wore to Six Flags. It was comfy and light weight which was perfect for the heat. I wish Vans were easier to walk around in for long periods of time but they’re pretty much my only sneakers.

After Six Flags, my boyfriend and I went to eat dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in LA county. I highly recommend eating at Lemonade if you’re ever near one of their locations.
