visual travel diary // Joshua Tree National Park


Several months ago (I know…I’m a little behind the ball) some of my favorite people were in LA for a mini vacation. We decided to check out Joshua Tree for the first time as a short excursion. I had heard so much about JTNP since moving to LA and this seemed like the perfect time to check it out. I’m hoping to visit again soon, but for now these memories will have to suffice.

This is a purely visual diary, and as we all know–a picture is worth a thousand words.

I was really excited to visit the Sequoia National Park with my best friend last week. Recently I’ve been getting the itch to escape into nature, go off grid, and reset in fresh air and this trip was just what I had in mind.

Next week I’ll be posting a more wordy travel diary as well as my personal recommendations if you want to explore these national parks as well. For now, below are just some of the hundreds of photos I took on our trip.  Continue reading “photo travel diary // SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK & KINGS CANYON”

LA WEEK 28 // How much ice cream can we eat!?


My good friend and work out buddy Faith (@thesweatycoconut) came to visit me last week and we had so much fun! Before she arrived she sent me a list of things she wanted to do, and no lie, that thing was 50% ice cream places! We had a good laugh about that when she got to my place late Wednesday night. We had originally planned to do a tour of the Warner Brother’s Studios on Thursday, but my sleep addled brain accidentally selected Friday for our tickets so we took the time to plan just how to fit all of that ice cream in… Continue reading “LA WEEK 28 // How much ice cream can we eat!?”
