The Forest Nymph

 I spent the majority of the time frolicking in this forest during our vacation.  It had the perfect scenic view full life and beauty.  It over looked the bluest ocean that I had ever seen before nothing compares to how peaceful I felt that day. I looked to my right and there where these acres of mighty green trees.  I felt like a mythical creature running and exploring this beautiful location.  The beauty of this is the location felt like a hidden gem. There was nobody around to enjoy this place and what it had to offer.  I was ready to witness the sun set to explore a new day.

Gloomy Roadtrips

    During the weekend my boyfriend and I decided to spontaneously take a small road trip to Hearst Castle again.  We just love taking trips it takes us away from normality into our own little world.  As suppose to last time the weather was very cold and foggy it gave the Castle I different look I focused more on photographing the location its just so beautiful.  Hearst Castle like last time left me dreaming of another era.

Flower Fields

  A few weeks ago I took a small road trip with my love all the way to Big Sur.  It is a location that its beauty is not explainable with words.  This flower field was so peaceful it was right by the beach.  Locations like this reminds me of how lucky I am to be alive.  In a few days I will be sharing the photographs of the complete trip.  Some of them have been posted to my Instagram @Ligerlily18 You can always catch me there on my new adventures.

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 …

Holiday Cheers

In two days we will all be gathered with our families to enjoy the holiday season. Can you believe it?! I am amazed at how fast time flies.  I love how winter allows us to put on layers of clothing.  We are able to mix textures, patterns, and colors all on one outfit. Let me say do not go over board with the patterns! Here is my representation of my holiday outfit in LA. Christmas in LA: there is no better place to feel the holiday cheer. All of the lights in Down town LA the music its simply perfection. Hope you all enjoy the beautiful holiday season.  I know I will I can’t wait for the tamales and champurado and of course to see my entire family. Merry Christmas to all, Follow me on IG Ligerlily18 to see my christmas adventure. XOXO

Pumpkin Patchin’

Halloween is almost here literally its tomorrow! For me honestly I have not been feeling in the spirit of halloween.  One of the main reasons is because of this semesters schedule.  Going to the pumpkin patch of course uplifted my spirit of Halloween. I love seeing all the little ones dressed up in their costumes and them just enjoying the time with their family.  One of the main reasons I look forward to Halloween is becasue I get to be extra creative as far as my costume goes.  DYI is the way to go for me, there nothing more challenging then thinking of a creative costume and disguissing myself as someone else for fun!!  I hope you all get to enjoy Halloween.  I can’t wait to snuggle on with Penny and watch Hocus Pocus with a big bowl of popcorn.

La Cuesta Encantada

{Dress: Tj Maxx, Wedges: BCBG, Hat: Forever 21} This is the trip that literally took my breath away.  I’ll start by saying this: my photographs give no justice to the beauty of this location. The view of this estate was breath taking in one corner I was able to see the Pacific Ocean on the next I was able to see the mountains.  The castle was a place where all the top celebrities would come by invitation and stay a couple of days in this beautiful location, people like Charlie Chaplin and Walt Disney were some of the guest that were privileged to be invited  to the castle.  As I was walking in the castle I was thinking of how amazing it would have been to be one of Hearst’s esteemed guests.   I dressed the part with my little white dress, you know and try to make it a little bit more special.  The dress reminded me in a way to the Roman era, one of the many themes the Castle held. My love and …

Peonies in the City

{Skirt: Forever 21, Top: Forever 21, Watch Marc Jacobs, Heels: Target, Bag: made for me by a local artist} Hi  guys it has been a while that I have spoken to you and let me just start by saying it feels good to post something new to share with you all.  I just started my last semester in College and it has definitely been a crazy schedule.  One moment I am at work  (early in the AM) and the next I am school. Its hard to keep up with everything from my friends to family.  I know that all this struggles that I am facing in life will be worth it.   I am one step closer to receiving my AA degree in business  and that is literally talking, by the end of December I will be receiving my degree. The city.  So many beautiful things to say about it.  Since i was younger I viewed Down Town Los Angeles as a hidden treasure.  Every corner brings something different.  From the Disney Hall, the art …

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
