Spring's Stand Out Nail Polish

No neutrals in sight, it's all about color this spring. 
Everything from bold colored denim to pastel sundresses. 
Another great way to play with this trend is in your manicure & pedicure. 
OPI Mermaid's Tears is currently peeking out of my wedges.

Peanut Buter Pretzel Bites

Q: What is better than peanut butter & chocolate?
A: Umm...nothing!

If you answered correctly to the question above then you have to try these
Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites!

Naturally I saw this recipe on Pinterest, originally from Two Tiny Kitchens.

You can thank me later, after your food coma.

She is an amazingly talented photographer!

Bye FL, Hello LA

I'm finally moved in at my best friend's mom's house in San Clemente, California. 
The only spring break I get this year is today & tomorrow so I'm taking full advantage of living 
two blocks from the beach and the perfect Cali weather!

My internship starts Monday and I cannot wait! 
I did a dry-run into the city a few days ago. 
Not looking forward to the 2 hour traffic-filled drive but I'll make it work. 
Considering taking the train into LA a few days a week. 

I am so thankful that my dad flew across the country with me last week to help me settle in. 
We had lots of fun braving the freeway together.
 And even drove 22 miles to get an In-n-Out Burger. It was worth the drive.
I have the greatest parents!

Here are a few snapshots I took at the start of this new adventure.

Perfect beach weather this weekend.

Can't wait for Monday!
