Catalina Island

I went to Catalina for the first time about three weeks ago and have been too busy to post any pics until now. Thank goodness for this Labor Day Weekend. I’m ready for some relaxation and some fun! Hope everyone has a fantastic three days off!!

Btw, Catalina was nice but I think I can do a day or day and a half trip max. Beautiful place but after a while I can see how some people will be bored. Everything we ate was also overpriced and not so spectacular, except for a few dishes. The island is super small and there are areas that are closed off to visitors. We all had fun kayaking and I will definitely do the zip line the next time I go to Catalina.

Tell me now baby is he good to you
Can he do to you the things that I do
I can take you higher
I’m on fire

Sometimes it’s like someone took a knife baby
Edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
Through the middle of my soul

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
And a freight train running through the
Middle of my head
Only you can cool my desire
I’m on fire

I feel like I’m literally “on fire”. It’s been soooo hot this whole week, I can’t wait for fall to arrive!

I’m off to Catalina this weekend, I’ve never been so I’m quite excited to do some zip-lining and bison watching, hahaha! Have a great weekend everyone!!

Weekend Rewinds

From the past two weeks…

It was hot hot hot a couple of weekends ago when I helped out my friend from Peanut Butter Dynamite at the Renegade Craft Fair. I think I devoured 6 of those popsies our two days working at the fair. I was able to do a little shopping for myself on Sunday and got two rad hanging air plants from Bird and Feather, a spine ring from Verameat, and truffle salt.

Check out Miran’s shop, she and her mother make the cutest pillows and rugs you will ever find!

We decided to stay out in LA and not have to deal with driving back and forth from, Long Beach(me) and Santa Ana(Miran). We stayed in a boutique hotel in Downtown and I was pleasantly surprised at how nice and clean the O Hotel was. For just one night it totally met all our expectations. Our room was clean, the staff was soooo nice and friendly, and the restaurant downstairs was actually pretty good. They also have a pretty decent free continental breakfast for those that are wondering.

This weekend was just relaxing. I visited the family, went to the farmer’s market, and did my best rendition of “Michael Phelps” in the pool. Let me just say I have mad respect for all our olympians. I mean I was OUT OF BREATHE after just 2 laps! (and we are talking about small laps, lol!)

and just because he looked soooo darn cute sitting there on my mantle yesterday:
