Wine Tasting

A couple of weeks ago my cousins and I took a road trip up to Santa Barbara.  We were celebrating my cousin’s bachelorette party.  We had a very relaxing weekend soaking up the beautiful sunny day.  To start things off we decided to  cruise around Solvang’s Wineries, it was my cousin’s first time ever to truly feel the beauty of a “buzz” lets just say she handle herself pretty darn well.  Her big day is a couple of weeks away.  I can not wait to see her in her beautiful wedding dress and get to see her embark in her happily ever after with the love of her life.

In Bloom

Moments like these make me realize that I am incredibly lucky to be able to witness beauty with all its might. Taking the trip to San Diego to visit The Flowers Field is a place that I will definitely be visiting again.  This place was surrounded with colorful blossoming flowers every where I looked.  I was a kid at a candy store so many colors everywhere.  I could not believe how beautiful it was.  It reminded me of the Lavender Field in France, it is one of those place that I hope I can visit in the future.

    I can safely say that I have a very strong obsession with having too many stripes and laces in my wardrobe choices.  This shirt by Banana Republic was no exception, I mean come it was on sale, so i had to buy.  I think it’s the fact that the texture automatically makes an outfit classy and that much more put together.  The heels I am currently obsessed with they are by Kurt Geiger and they were the first items in my closet that I splurged in.  Smartly splurged though, I am all about a bargain deal. Here is the background story: Ladies and gents.  If you love everything fashion then you must get these two apps one is Haute Look and the other Nordstrom Rack.  Let me tell you every day they have new sales( 30, %, 50%,60% off sales…oh yeah) going on from designers all over the world. Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, Chloe, etc.  Go check it out! that is where I got my glorious heels.  Lets just say I am in …

WoMan’s World

It is the last days of winter and I was feeling a little men’s wear vibe going on, while wearing my pant suit and plaid coat.  I wanted to give my outfit a tough look by adding my Jeffrey Campbell boots, which have become my favorite.  I have never seen a pair of boots more interesting than this bad boys.  I love how the straps wrap around the shoe and that they are a blue hue, it is the cherry on top.  I had to keep the colors close to each other so that my coat will pop out.  This coat is so Inpesctor Gadget meets Paul Bunyan in a concert. ha! You can say this is my 2015 outfit giving a kind farewell to winter with a bang of Kool Aid. The Art District in LA is one of those places that I have had on my list of places I want to visit.  It is amazing spot in LA filled colors and different ideas.   It inspired me even more to grab one of my …

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. XOXO, Charms of Penny

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 …

The Foggy Road

     There is something about the fog that makes its surroundings so peculiar.  The morning of this shoot reminded me of the perfect setting for an Edgar Allan Poe story mysterious, but alluring at the same time.  I am so glad I had my yellow coat, with out I think I would blend in with the sea of haze.

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.

Merry Christmas to all, Follow me on IG Ligerlily18 to see my christmas adventure. XOXO

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 …
