San Clemente. Last Fall while I was deciding on where to go for a mini getaway I had so many ideas in mind but, my top priorities were: price, safety, and (duh) aesthetics. I was craving color and comfort but also ease of travel because sometimes public transportation or simply being within walking distance is preferable to explore the city.
Nestled in Orange County, San Clemente is an artsy but also lively beach city with plenty to explore and visit. The weather is really nice but I recommend bringing a cardigan or light coat if you decide to spend the night out. Its definitely a city I want to go back and explore. You can walk freely at night because literally everyone is awake. Whether they are grabbing a late night bite, walking back from the beach, finding some coffee, or hanging with friends. I love cities that are night owl friendly quite honestly. But don’t think that it’ll prevent a good sleep – the tourist and locals aren’t loud that you’ll need a sound machine or so. Even lounging at midnight with a movie and snack at your Air BNB is a treat.
I am a devout addict of plants. Give me some cacti, succulent, the inexpensive wildflower bouquets from Trader Joes or the farmer’s market, the deepest red roses. Truly anything that falls under the realm of botany is welcomed in my vicinity. I am a devout plant lady through & through.
Between bopping to Kacey Musgraves, Scarlett Johansson & Pete Yorn, and Drakes new tracks (have y’all listened to Nice For What? All these women are masterpieces) and enjoying my weekends out and creating adventures. I recently came back from a post birthday trip to Monterey & Carmel and cant wait to share that visit! Also, I’ve been indulging in a lot of veggie pizza and spending time singing out loud when the moment hits and smiling at strangers in hopes I can spark some light in someone’s day.
Let it be known that I will always be drawn to any facet of nature. While I was never really drawn to jewelry, and I don’t own much to begin with. However, that changed after feeling like I wanted to channel some earthy vibes + wear that proudly.
It’s no secret that gemstones + crystals have become ubiquitous lately. But I wanted something genuine, a timeless piece that I wouldn’t be able to find elsewhere. In truth I prefer substance over ease. I wanted something handmade and thoughtfully curated.
