TRAVEL WITH ME: SAN CLEMENTE

 

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.

SPRING FORWARD / DREAMY DÉCOR WITH PHOTOWALL

 

Lately I have been jamming to Against the Current, Camila Cabello, and Bat for Lashes through this winter weather. It finally did rain and I danced in puddles a little too much. I am seeking warmth in oil burners, lavender, and lit candles. It’s nice to have a shift in décor to remind you of wildflowers, honey sweet birdsong, and warmth on your skin. While I am truly enjoying the cold air and winter sun, a growing part of me is looking forward to springtime.

Still I have been making moon-milks (Moon Juice protein powder + raw cacao) and crocheting until the dawn (oops) I am making the most of winter. With a new year, I think of bloom, growth, and new beginnings. This January has been a mix of gatherings, rekindling friendships, and honestly – after long work days, ll you want is a bit of a rejuvenation (especially in the home!) I partnered up with Photowall to decorate my space and here’s the reveal of my reading nook + bed.
