The Sea of Love

  {Top: Ay Que Vintage, Shorts: Forever 21, Sandals: Marshalls,Hat: Zara} This past weekend I celebrated our eight year anniversary with my love by surprising him to a ride/picnic  on a boat.   I wanted to surprise him with something that I know he loves to do.  Riding the boat by the beach reminded me of the movie Sabrina.  Its one of my favorite movies of all time, I imagined how she seemed so happy while sining the banana song and it was the moment when Humphrey Bogart’s character truly falls in love with Audrey Hepburn’s character… call me cheesy, but maybe I wanted to build that kind of romance with my love. I got a feeling of peace and serenity as we listened to good ol’ 60’s rock music in the open sea, from The Beach Boys to The Beatles.  I loved everything about it.  I wanted to embrace and show case the open sea with my outfit with a mix of the Caribbean.

California Girl

The number one thing I love about living in Southern California is the variety of beaches that are just a car ride away.  Besides the great weather year round, Southern Cali has the best destinations for mini vacations.  This past weekend I visited Manhattan Beach with my love and for the first time in a while  I was able to relax and enjoy the sounds of the ocean and the sounds of happy children playing on the beach.  Thanks to this day now I’m sporting a cute little tan.  By the way I never thought in my life that I would be able to rock a bathing suit the journey of fitness goal is very difficult, but I will not quit.  Second month in with just simply following a good diet and good exercise routines, I can’t wait for the upcoming months. I hope you all enjoy your weekend! XOXO, Charms of Penny

Singing the Summer Blues

{Romper: Forever 21, Heels: Target, Accesories: Urban Outfitters} I always have an idea of certain things that would not go with my body shape and rompers is the number one item of clothing that I have on my list of things that wouldn’t go.   I have been working out for the past two months and honestly that has been my main focus.  I love the feeling I get after I work out and the boost of confidence I feel when I once again fit on my Levis.  This romper I never thought would have looked well on me.  I felt super proud of myself. The location where I took these photographs is one of my favorite locations going up to Solvang it reminds me of The Lords of the Rings meets delicious ribs.  We celebrated my cousin’s birthday in this Tavern and let me tell you I can still taste the ribs and chili to this day. It is a restaurant in the middle of the woods next door it is a pub where people …

Road Trip-Day One

As soon as summer hits, the first thoughts that come to mind is: what places am I going to discover and of course fun in the sun.  This past weekend my cousins and I decided to take a road trip to Solvang.  It is the first time that my sister, cousins, and I take a vacation together.  The memories and laughs is something that we will forever remember.  Of course the all time girl summer song is playing in my head as I type this post
