Visiting San Luis Obispo

san luis obispo

On our way up to Seattle we had to stop in San Luis Obispo. Not only because I went to Cal Poly, but because it is such a cute town. I love all the quaint buildings and stores tucked away. If you are ever near the area you must make a pit stop to grab some food and walk through the town for a bit.

I sure love a good brick building.

Am I the only one who loves old buildings and signs?

Of course the ever famous bubblegum alley. I heard there is one here in Seattle as well, but I haven’t seen it yet. There are two ways of looking at this. 1. a really cool art piece 2. lots of germs …take your pick.

I spent way too much money in college at these cute boutiques downtown…whoops.beach

We also stopped by the San Simeon Bay to snap some pics and stretch our legs. Unfortunately it was pretty overcast, but still gorgeous!


Water makes everything so much prettier! I am loving living right next to the water now. PS. I am having a meet up in Seattle August 23rd so stay tuned for details!

Aztec Print

Hey guys! I was so looking forward to this fashion post. I decided to take the pics in San Luis Obispo because I felt the style of this dress fit right in. This entire outfit is from BooHoo, and seriously go to their site right now and check everything out. Everything is really unique and very affordable. The print and style of this dress is unlike anything I own. Honestly, I love each accessory here too. The watch is so unique and the rings are great to layer. I have been using this bag every single day in Seattle so far. It’s super roomy and makes my life much easier! Oh yes and the shoes are perfect. They would be super cute with jean shorts or skinny jeans too. Love!

Road Trip Thoughts

Hey everyone! I am so sorry I have been slightly MIA lately. We finally are on our trip to Seattle. We left this evening around 4:00 and are currently in San Luis Obispo for the night. Today has been super crazy. We made our millionth (I just made that word up) trip down to San Diego to drop off the last of our stuff we are not taking with us. Once we move back to California we will end up in San Diego, so we wanted to store everything there. So yes, we managed to fill up another car full of stuff. Moving really is an eye-opening experience. I feel like I am very good at hiding my stuff. Who is with me? For instance, if you were to come into my apartment, it would look very tidy. However, once I take everything out of it’s place, I look sort of insane. The amount of products I own kinda mades me sick. I know it is my job to test out and review products, but still, it is a bit much. Having a lot of storage in your house is definitely a scary thing. It is a way to minimize your hoarding problems. Not that I am blaming any of you! Ha… What were we talking about again? Oh yes moving. So, I have realized that I need to work on simplifying my life. Life is not about things. And I am sure most of you know that already, but sometimes we need to be reminded of it every now and then. We have only driven about 4 hours so far, but it has already opened my eyes so much.


I graduated from college in 2011 and haven’t been back since. When I was making the drive up here tonight (well when Andrew was making the drive, and I kept him company) I saw everything in a whole new light. I think many times we are always looking to the future. When will I be done with college? When will I get engaged? When will I get a house? And we lose sight of what is in front of us. At once point we were driving through beautiful mountains, and a few years ago I thought it was the most boring part of the drive. Tonight I couldn’t get over how beautiful it all was. So I hope all of you can take a moment this week and appreciate where you are at this stage in your life. Enjoy each moment and spend a little less time worrying about tomorrow. Andrew reminds me of this everyday and I love him for that. Life is a blessing and I hope to see the joy and beauty out of the simple things, because that is what truly matters.
