Polka Dots

I love me a cropped onsie, especially when it’s got polka dots and ruffles!  Perfect for summer and you can dress up or dress down depending on where you’re going.

VEGAN LEATHER JACKET

I’ve been looking for a vegan leather jacket for awhile but hadn’t been able to find the right one.  I’d known about Blank NYC but had never really perused their catalog.  Guys!!!! They have such amazing stuff and it’s  all their “leather” is vegan!  Hooray.  And aside from those, they have a ton of other great clothes.

I love supporting companies who share the same vision as me.   I get stopped so often in Los Angeles by people who ask about my bags, or my shoes, or clothes and more than half the time they are shocked when the find out their vegan.  I feel like if I can help one person to stop supporting the harming of animals, then I’m doing my job (though I’d like to reach a shit load of people).

I never preach at people, I find that has an adverse effect on them.  I just share when people ask, and educate people at how easy it is to be vegan.  My mom just came to visit for a week and she at vegan the whole time and was blown away at the food she was eating.  So much so that she, the woman who swore she would never give up half and half, ordered Nutpods off amazon to have when she went back to New Mexico because she loved it so much.  So that is one small victory.  Starting at 69 is never too late.

In a Fairy Tale

We’ve lived not too far from Kenneth Hahn Park in Los Angeles FOREVER and I had never been there.  On a whim we decided to go check it out and take some photos.  Holy Shit was I blown away by this park.  It’s not only enormous but it’s also gorgeous.  There are so many different parts to the park and each one has it’s own feel.  I will definitely be spending more time here!

California’s Crazy Super bloom

All the rain in California this year has been a godsend.  The last 6 years have been so dry and our winters felt more like mild summers.  But not this year!  This year we were blessed with shit tons of rain which resulted in these crazy super blooms!  The Antelope Valley and Lake Elsinore were the 2 main spots everyone and their grandmothers were going to take pictures.  When we got to “the spot” in Lake Elsinore there were like 200 other people there (i’m assuming a lot of them were bloggers) taking photos.  It was kinda cool to see.  My allergies were hating every second of it but it was well worth it.  We didn’t see any poppies that day but as you can see from the photos we got tons of yellow wild flowers.  I hope it rains like this every year.
