Deep Creek Hot Springs is the perfect little adventure. Just around a 2 hour drive from the Orange County/LA area, this place is great when you want a change of scenery but don’t have a ton of time for a vacation. I went for the first time in September of 2016 & have been trying to get back there since! This past Labor Day weekend  I made it back for my 2nd adventure at Deep Creek!

Lately I’ve been wanting to make my crochet items as wearable as possible! I love designing unique pieces & funky festival outfits, but a girl needs her basics too! As soon as I saw this Wool & The Gang yarn I knew it would be the perfect stuff for a versatile summer tank! And so, the first piece in my “Everyday Crochet” collection was born!

As I was planing my trip to Joshua Tree, I wanted to check out what other attractions were in the area. I remembered seeing photos of this strange dome building in the desert, & began stocking Instagram to learn more. Unsure exactly what it was, I soon learned this place was called Integratron & people went there for Sound Baths. I am always open to trying different methods of relaxation (who doesn’t want to feel more peaceful & rejuvenated?) So I organized a trip to Integratron!

Living in Southern California, Joshua Tree is one of the closest National Parks to me! I vaguely remember going as a child, but I appreciate it so much more now. Continue reading “Exploring Joshua Tree National Park”
I have always liked going to San Francisco. My first memory of the city is from a trip with my Girl Scout troop in elementary school. Since then, it has been the only big city I have wanted to go back to again & again. So naturally, I had to check out their music festival, Outside Lands!

I’ve always been interested in fashion. My first job was at a small boutique in my hometown. The place was packed with dresses, tops & all the latest trends. I would spend my afternoons trying on different styles & falling in love with the way a good outfit can make you feel.
If you have ever read my About page you may remember that one day I want to have a farm! So this place was basically a dream come true! Having never heard or seen anything about the 123 Farm, I had no idea what to expect. But it blew me away, complete with a lavender breeze! Continue reading “A Day at the Lavender Festival!”
The Museum of Ice Cream! You have probably seen it on Instagram & if you haven’t, then you have most likely been living under a rock this past year. But for those of you who didn’t get a $29 tickets, don’t fret! I went & ate all the stomach ache inducing deserts just so you don’t have too! Well that & I really wanted to see the pool of sprinkles for myself. Continue reading “The Museum Of Ice Cream!”
One of my favorite things about crochet is that it has been around for decades. As much as I will try to create something totally original, I will almost always find someone who has done it before. Continue reading “Vintage Inspired Orangesicle Set”
Every time I go to an event like this I leave feeling like I have learned so much. I talk to many people, have lots of different encounters, & am exposed to tons of unique world views.
Some of the people I spoke with at this years festival helped me realize it really is not as hard to accomplish your goals or make a change in your life as you may think. Everywhere I looked there was someone chasing their dreams or educating others about a cause close to their hearts. Continue reading “Life Lessons from Lightning In A Bottle! “
