Celine 41023/S Sunglasses

Sorry for my usual disappearing act, but I’ve been busy livin’. I also haven’t really been updating because my camera broke, and well, I’m waiting for it to be repaired. I did, however, swoop myself up a new pair of sunglasses I can share with you all. For the most part, I love cheap sunglasses because, let’s be real, it’s way too easy to drop them, scratch them, lose them etc… but, every once in a while, I find a pair that are worth the money. For me, these Celine 41023/S sunglasses were it.

I first tried these on at Nordstrom in San Francisco, and after leaving them behind in the store that day, I ran back the very next day to get them. This style sat a little big on my face, which is odd because I have a wide face, however, Nordstrom was able to heat them up and re-shape them to fit much better. Not much else going on, just thought these were super cute and had to have ‘em!

You can’t buy Celine sunglasses online, so, if you are interested in this style, you will have to head on over to your local Nordstrom, Saks or Neiman’s.

Nike Free Inneva Woven SP

If there is one thing I am a sucker for, it’s sneakers. I prefer sneakers over heels any day, so, when I came across these new Nike Free Inneva Woven SP sneakers, in two colors, you better believe I had to have both. Two of my favorite things, the color pink, and Nike, together in one fabulous new sneaker? Must add to cart.

The best thing about my love affair with sneakers is, it’s totally acceptable to wear them with just about anything these days. Toss these beauties on with your favorite boyfriend jeans, a crop top sweater, and skip around town in your new found sporty style.

Disclaimer- I don’t like to tie my shoes

Superga x Versus Versace

When you think of Versace, the first thing that comes to mind, for most, is over the top glamour, until now that is. My favorite Italian sneaker line, Superga, has just announced that they will be collaborating with Versace’s “Versus” for a colorful, but casual, new sneaker collection. The new line will be called Superga x Versus Versace, and will feature both brands logo designs, in vibrant, bold colors, on a classic Superga 2750 lace up sneaker.

The Superga x Versus Versace collab will be available at select Versus boutiques, Superga stores, and both online stores: shop.versace.com and superga.com.

Lily Aldridge Balayage Hair

Every girl has their favorite Victoria’s Secret model, and mine just so happens to be the beautiful Lily Aldridge. From her flawless skin, and full eyebrows, to her perfect pouty lips, and stylish hair, Lily Aldridge is my idea of a perfect 10.

I have been saving photos of Lily’s hair for some time now, so, I could try to recreate her hair cuteness when my next hair appointment rolled around. My hair dresser Angela, at Salon Radiance 2, is the best at balayage hair coloring, so, these are the photos I brought to her for inspiration.

My hair is naturally a bit lighter than Lily’s, so, I left my natural color alone, and instead just added some Lily-ish highlights around my face, and to the ends. While it’s not nearly as healthy as her hair, nor is it her exact color, I do love the overall change, just in time for Summer.

Lily Aldridge Balayage Hair

My hair has been lighter for a while now, and I am so happy I made the switch from dark to my natural hair color, it is so much easier to maintain! I really think all girls look better with their natural hair color anyway, as it really brings out their features the best.

If you have darker hair, and are looking to lighten up, you will need a reliable hair stylist that will make sure to do as little damage as possible to your hair, while correcting the color. I can vouch for Angela’s color correction skills, as she has always done her best to keep my hair in good shape, while lightening it back up for me.

To get more information on this process, or to schedule an appointment with Angela, you can text her directly at 619-201-7638.

Naughty Boy – La La La ft. Sam Smith

This is by far my favorite song, and video at the moment, probably because the little kid, and his dog remind me of Priscilla and I. It’s over a year old, but, I am just now discovering it, oops. Sam Smith is the best.

Now Playing- Naughty Boy – La La La ft. Sam Smith

‘Cause if my heart can’t stop it, I find a way to block it, I go la la, la la la la la na na na na na

La la, la la la la la na na na na na,
La la na na, la la la la la na na na na na

Hush, don’t speak
When you spit your venom, keep it shut I hate it
When you hiss and preach
About your new messiah ’cause your theories catch fire

I can’t find your silver lining
I don’t mean to judge
But when you read your speech, it’s tiring
Enough is enough

I’m covering my ears like a kid
When your words mean nothing, I go la la la
I’m turning up the volume when you speak
‘Cause if my heart can’t stop it,
I find a way to block it, I go
La la, la la la la la na na na na na
La la na na, la la la la la na na na na na,
I find a way to block it, I go
La la na na, la la la la la na na na na na [2x]

If our love is running out of time
I won’t count the hours, rather be a coward
When our worlds collide
I’m gonna drown you out before I lose my mind

I can’t find your silver lining
I don’t mean to judge
But when you read your speech, it’s tiring
Enough is enough

What to Pack for San Francisco

San Francisco has always been one of my favorite cities, I love almost everything about it. The abundance of start-up companies, the active nature of the people, the rainy weather and actual seasons, the fact that I can wear coats and boots, the healthy food options, the smart people, the architecture… it’s just such an exciting city to me, and much more my pace than San Diego.

For the past few years, I have always had a strong desire to live there, but, I simply wasn’t mentally prepared to leave San Diego behind. To determine whether or not I would really be happy living there, I have been spending more time there, and so far I am loving it. I really believe that everyone should live in another city, at some point in their life, so, I think it’s time that I really consider making the move. After all, I have lived in San Diego my entire life, I need to experience another city’s way of life while I still have the chance to.

I will keep you posted on what I decide, but, in the meantime, I wanted to share a couple pictures from my last few trips there, as well as some tips on what to pack, since the weather is infamous for being unpredictable.

The first weekend I visited, we rode our bikes across the Golden Gate Bridge and into Sausalito. It was pretty windy and cold riding across the bridge, however, it is such a pretty view that you sort of forget about being so cold. Once we were in Sausalito, we had lunch, and then took the ferry back across to San Francisco. I think we ended up riding over 10 miles that day, half of which seemed to be straight up hills.

The next day we headed out to Presido Park, which I would say is similar to a beach day here in San Diego. Simply subtract bikinis and sand, and insert in clothing and grass, and you’ve got yourself Presidio Park. Basically, it’s a huge grass lawn that vendors sell food and drinks at, while everyone hangs out listening to music, on blankets in the sun. People bring their kids and pets, so, it’s pretty much one giant lawn party.

While browsing Pinterest, I discovered these beautiful mosaic stairs, that over 300 neighbors put together. I love them!

If you are in San Francisco, you can visit these stairs at: 1700 16th Avenue.

Last Sunday morning I decided to go for a run, and discovered an intense set of stairs called the Lyon Street Stairs. I believe there are a total of 332 stairs, but considering I only went down them, I had no problem with that. Looking down from the top of them is really so beautiful. You have the best view of San Francisco, and the surrounding scenery is something out of a movie. There also is a giant heart in the middle of the stairs, and, well… you all know how much I love hearts. If you do visit these stairs, prepare to share them, as they are cluttered with personal trainers, and well, people like me.

These stairs can be found by simply heading West on Broadway until it ends.

When I visit SF, I stay in Pacific Heights, which is full of plush flowers and one of a kind Victorian architecture

If you are in the city, I would recommend checking out the above places, and I definitely will share more interesting places as I discover them myself! And now, for those of you wondering what to pack, here is a list of things you’ll want to make sure you take with.

◄ Things to Pack for San Francisco ►

  • A warm coat for nighttime- It gets very windy and cold.
  • Sunny day outfits- Sundresses, shorts, and sandals are all very wearable at the moment, as long as you are in the sun.
  • Workout clothing- Everyone lives in Lululemon clothing, and if you’re anything like me, you will be actively exploring at one point or another.
  • Flat shoes- I was ridiculous and brought over five pairs of heels, I ended up wearing maybe one pair. With all the hills and walking you do in SF, flats are a must.
  • Hats- You may be outside exploring, so, bring a hat to protect your face from excessive sun.
  • Light jacket- Besides one heavy coat, you will also want a light jacket to bring with you during the day. The sunny weather changes quickly.

Overall, it’s a very casual city, so, a casual glam dress-code works best; Sundresses, shorts, tanks, t-shirts, light sweaters, jeans, leggings, boots, sneakers, sandals and maybe one nice dinner outfit is all I would really pack. Anyway, that is all for now, but, if you have any other cool places you think I should check out, leave them in a comment below!
