Summer Songs

        Gladiator Sandals: Steve Madden //Zara off-Shoulder Printed Dress// Summer is almost over.  I know we are taught to believe that summer is “officially” over after Labor Day, but I am a very technical person sooo…summer isn’t officially over till September 22.  I think I am just in denial that summer fun is a thing of the past.  Besides, in LA we are currently experiencing a crazy heat wave.  You know where I’ll be this weekend! The beach! Soaking up the sun.  I hope you all enjoy your weekend. Advertisements

Birthday Doll

It is finally here the big twenty-five.  As a girl in high school I would envision how I wanted my life to be.  I thought that the perfect age to do everything was at that age.  I imagined I would already have traveled, have had my degree, and be married to my high school sweat-heart.  Basically everything would fall into place when I turned the two five. Boy was I wrong! At twenty four I started realizing that it was harder than I thought and I started to work on it. Twenty-five will definitely be my best year yet! It will be full of amazing adventures, glitter, and pizzazz. It’s funny how time truly flies so fast.   I created unrealistic expectations for myself when I was younger and at twenty-five I am now seeing that if I work for what I want correctly and consistently everything WILL fall into place.   I have learned so much since I was eighteen and I know there’s is still a lot of learning to do.  I can not …

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 …

Riders on the Storm

{Skirt: Gap, Sandals: Steve Madden, Accessories: Thrift Stores} The dessert like the ocean in my eyes is seen as a place to reflect on life.  This summer I have been doing a lot of soul searching.  Riding through this desert I have thought about where my life is at the moment and where I want to be in life in the close future.   Being ambitious…there is nothing wrong with being that way.  I love learning new things and mastering the skills that I once feared.  Being a photographer specially starting this summer I have faced  a  lot of challenges.  I even started to doubt my skills, but by staying positive and being persistent I know that I can conquer it all.

Spontaneous is my Middle Name

  {TJ Maxx Dress, Steve Madden Gladiator Sandals, Forever 21 hat and accessories, Buffalo Exchange Bag} The word spontaneous accelerates my blood.   That and the word trip.  This past weekend my boyfriend and I decided to visit our love nest.  It is a place that was currently hit with tragedy and it saddened our heart that Santa Barbara was struck with such travesty.  It is a place that is filled with peacefulness and the news did not hit us until we were already driving to visit our “home” We tried not to think of what had occurred on the past days and our prayers do go out to the families of the victims. Everything about this trip was spontaneous.  From deciding to take our dear Penny for the first time on our small road trip to riding on the coast of Santa Barbara with Penny inside the basket.  I loved everything about it and this day will be marked in my heart forever.  

Sunset with Lace

  {American Apparel dress, heels purchased in Amazon, Ivanka Trump purse, Marc Jacobs watch, Thrift Store accessories} Hello everyone, Once again I find myself having a small hiatus from my blog and it is something that breaks my heart.  From the end of another school year to a daily 8 to 5 job.  I find myself struggling with finding time to do what I love to do.  I managed to find the time I needed and enjoy the three day weekend we just had.  I love enjoying the weekends as much as possible and stay away from sitting down, which is what I do at my office job.  The outfit that I wore was different from the rest.  I wanted to feel extra fancy this day so I put the dress that always makes me feel so lady like and ended with my dear Penny Lane by my side and witness the beautiful sunset.        

The Owl by My Side

{TJmaxx Sporty Trousers, Pink Shirt: G Stage, Custom purse for me :), Target: heels, Urban Outfitters necklace} What can be better than a custom bag made for you.  This bag has finally made its debut and it was an amazing journey working with the designer and being able to my thoughts into creating this masterpiece.  He was so detailed with the patterns and colors and I sincerely love everything about this purse.  The basket weaving, the color of the leather, and of course my initials. Like the title says the owl will forever be by my side and this custom purse will forever be by my side     

Blue Suede Shoes

(Forever21 sunglasses, Levis Black Jeggings, Thrift Store Shirt, and H&M Heels) Rain is coming to California, yet I’m still reminiscing on the beautiful sun light that I witness this past weekend. I spent the weekend in Pasadena baby sitting my cousins cute pups. I took the opportunity to take a walk around town. I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced this, but there is some items in my closet that even though they are so fashion forward and vintage, I can’t seem to think I can pull it off. The red shirt is a perfect example of what I am talking about. I bought this shirt at my local thrift store and it was a complete steal. Even as I am typing this I am slowly growing fond of it. My Levis specially this black jeggings remind me of “Bad” Sandy from Grease and just like her, I feel like a bad ass with them on. Ending the day at my favorite candy store added to my rebellion
