california vibes playlist

Processed with VSCO with m5 presetI’ve lived in California pretty much my whole life. Recently, I’ve really been savoring those California vibes I love so much considering it’s coming up on my last few weeks here for a while before I’m off to college. One of my favorite types of music is that whimsical, road trippin’, wave ridin’ sound, and this playlist of songs are the perfect combination of all those good vibes. It’s music that you listen to while sitting in the sand watching the waves or driving on PCH with no particular destination.Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

hiking in laguna beach

For the Fourth of July, my dad and I decided to try a new hiking trail in Laguna Beach that overlooks the ocean – and it was absolutely breathtaking. This trail has now become one of my favorite hiking destinations in Southern California. I decided I wouldn’t write to much on this post and let the photos do the talking, I hope you enjoy.

laguna beach photo diary

Laguna Beach is probably one of my favorite places in Southern California. The beaches are incredibly beautiful and the downtown area is full of cute restaurants, art galleries, and quaint little gift shops. If you are planning on visiting Laguna, I would recommend opting out of Main Beach and exploring the smaller beaches, such as Crescent Bay, Victoria, or Treasure Island, which are easily accessible with the free trolley that runs throughout the summer. As for downtown, the National Geographic exhibit is a must see, and make sure to stop by Gelato Paradiso for delicious Italian gelato (get napkins, it does tend to spill all over your hands). Additionally, there are several aesthetically pleasing shops throughout the town, such as the one pictured below, that sell everything from succulents to wind chimes. Here are some photos I took recently that I think sum up Laguna Beach perfectly.

california summer playlist ft. the babe rainbow

Babe-Rainbow-2
Hey guys! So recently I’ve really been savoring those California Summer vibes considering it’s my last months here for a while before I’m off to college. Recently I discovered a little Australian band called The Babe Rainbow, and have been in love with them since. One of my favorite types of music is that whimsical, road trippin’, wave ridin’ sound, and The Babe Rainbow is the perfect combination of all those good vibes. It’s music that you listen to while sitting in the sand watching the waves or driving on PCH with no particular destination. Not to mention their vintage, beachy aesthetic is amazing.tumblr_nnx10mXIVC1t0ywa1o2_540
