One of the last things we did in Guatemala was a beach trip!! We didn’t spend that much time at my grandmas because we were always out doing things.. We also planned it that way because nothing scares me more than my grandmas. I will add pictures of her kitchen and the town, my parents both come from Nueva Santa Rosa (they’re not related i’ve asked and they asked their parents before they started dating…)
So here is the thing about my grandmas… her home is very open and there are HUGE spiders and what not, i love the silence and cold showers don’t get me wrong i can rough it out. But there are so many ghost stories that don’t sit well with me and terrify me. With that said the first night I did not sleep and almost caused myself a massive anxiety attack because that’s how my mind rolls.
We spent the last full day at the beach HAWAII in Guatemala WHAT? Seriously it was called Hawaii. We left my grams at like 5am and got to the beach around 9. Not before taking a fucking tiny little canoe with our van on it..we live life on the edge because that shit did not seem safe. Half way my dad was like oh there are piranhas here, so that happened.
We made it to the beach safely and I spent the whole day in the water (minus lunch time) the water was just so warm and clear, the waves weren’t knocking me down for a change. This was by far the best way to start 2016, there was something about that day that made the whole trip extra magical. Sometimes we get so caught up with life and take the little simplest moments for granted.
Without further ado.. here are the images!
(This is my grams stove from like the 1950s which is still being used)

Can you tell I become obsessive? Also hey distraction
London was absolutely stunning. We left Paris on a Sunday had an incredibly dramatic exit. Let’s just say stick together and don’t think of getting off of a train in a foreign country. Anyways, we were only there for 48hrs but they were the best 48 hrs ever. Everyone was friendly and moving oh so quickly. The first thing I did when I got there was go to Tate Modern…ended up taking two trips and still didn’t make a dent but enjoyed my time and took the time to speak to one of the photographers. London left me feeling some kind of way, mostly wanting more.
London Eye View.
London Natural History Museum
gahhhh!!!! Ok,SO! I had been obsessing over the Natural History Museum, so much so that I purchased their book about the architecture. The exhibit was pretty cool too BUT being there in all that beauty was everything to me.
Chinatown Summer Nights is one of my absolute favorite things to do in the Summer. This was the second year my friends and I embarked our journey. Food trucks, CONFETTI POPPERS, DJ’s and live bands, what more could I ask for? Love that this event brings people together to explore what we usually wouldn’t, the ambience of it all is just amazing.
“Summer time and the livin’ is easy..” Every time I think of summer ‘Doin Time’ by Sublime comes to mind. Since the beginning of the New Year I wanted to change up my style. Craving that easy boho look to go along with the new attitude that I wanted for 2014 here are some inspirations I pulled off my Pinterest.
Last Summer I wanted to go to different beaches along the coast of California. Needless to say I went to at least 3 new ones, this year I really really want to go to Big Sur. Big Sur will be my goal for the Summer, but I still want to do my research of the best beaches in Southern California. Living in Los Angeles I should be exploring more, this is my home after all.
You might want to know what’s up with the Moroccan doors.. well I will hopefully be traveling to Morocco come 2015. I never want to lose sight of the places I’d like to go, nothing like coloring my life with desire.
