My Boho Bedroom Inspo

My Boho Bedroom Inspo

We're slowly but surely settling into our new house! There are still a few boxes lying around, filled with things we're not quite sure where to put yet - but we're getting there. Our house is nothing like the old apartment, so there are a lot of things that don't quite fit/work in the new space. The dining room is empty since we don't have any furniture for it yet, so it's pretty much been a holding ground for all the stuff we're still deciding what to do with. The room we've come farthest along with so far is our bedroom - lil sneak peek of it in the pic above. We get such beautiful sunlight in this room thanks to 3 windows, I'm in love! We haven't hung any curtains yet (all our old apartment curtains are the wrong dimensions) and 3 of the 4 walls are completely bare, so we still have a ways to go. I want our new house to be a bit simpler than our old place though - less clutter, more calm. Keep scrolling to see some of the peaceful, gorge bedrooms that have been serving as my inspo lately.

Exploring Borrego Springs

Exploring Borrego Springs

Up until last month, I had never even heard of Borrego Springs. I was chatting with a friend about how I wanted to go on a lil getaway to a California city I'd never been before, when he mentioned this darling desert town. Just a 3 hour drive from LA and surrounded by the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, it was just the change of scenery Eddie and I were looking for. With a population of under 4,000 people, this small town has no big chains and is California's first Dark Sky Communitywhich means it's dedicated to protecting the night sky from light pollution. Star gazer heaven! While we did a lot of relaxing at our amazing hotel, we also ventured out to explore our surroundings. Come take a look at some of our adventures!

Salvation Mountain

Salvation Mountain

I finally made it to this folk art masterpiece! Leonard Knight's Salvation Mountain has been on my must-viz list for a while now, ever since I first saw photos of it on Instagram. An explosion of color in the middle of the dez, it really is a sight to see.  Located just east of the Salton Sea and about a 3 and a half hour drive from Los Angeles, it's a trek to get to this little piece of magic - but a great spot to check out when visiting Palm Springs, as it's only about an hour and a half drive from there.

Borrego Springs: Where To Stay

Borrego Springs: Where To Stay

Eddie and I started a tradition last year of going on a lil Christmas getaway to a California city we'd never been to before. We stayed in a darling Airstream in Temecula last year, and this year we decided to check out the beautiful desert town of Borrego Springs, located in the northeast area of San Diego county. As much as I love LA, it's always so refreshing to get out of the big city and take a few days to relax and recharge - and Borrego Springs is really the perf place to do just that. Surrounded by Anza-Borrego Desert State Parkand being California's first Dark Sky Community, you won't find any big chains in this charming small town. I wanted to share our experience staying at the Borrego Valley Inn with you, and spoiler alert - it was wonderful. Keep scrolling for lots of pics from our stay!

Beach Barcycle Birthday Bash

Beach Barcycle Birthday Bash

Having a Christmas eve birthday is a funny thing - bouncers, bartenders, and any sort of ID checkers always ask me, "What's that like?" Growing up, it had its plus and minuses. There was the occasional grouping together of prezzies ("This is for your bday AND xmas!"). Since school is obvi never in session on the 24th and everyone stays home with their fams around the holidays, I would sometimes get bummed I never got to celebrate with my friends on or around my day. But, having a Christmas eve birthday made the holidays and the month of December in general that much more exciting. Since I couldn't celebrate with friends the day of, my parties were always a few weeks before, which meant I got to prolong the excitement - a whole month of celebrating! And having your birthday the day before Christmas means a lotta cheer, prezzies, and CAKE packed into a 48 hour time frame. Fast forward to now and pretty much the same holds true! I don't usually go crazy to celebrate, I've actually gone years without having any sort of party because I know how busy everyone is during the holidays. But I wanted to do something this year, and I've been dying to experience the Venice Beach Barcycle - so I figured this would be the perf time to get some friends together to experience it with me.
