I want to go on fun hikes through Crystal Cove and eat some tacos on taco tuesday. I want to get a job and make some money that I can spend on fun zumba & cardio classes at the gym, oh, and clothes too :) I want to soak up the sun with my mom & sistas & Matthew of course. Sooo please hurry up and get here! I am anxiously awaiting your arrival!!!

This makes me happy! I think that blogging is such a beautiful thing :) I love following blogs because I am constantly inspired by different bloggers. I love reading about their stories, their dreams, their love for fashion, or anything that they have to share! There are so many different blogs out there and I love discovering new blogs to add to my list of favorites. Here is a short list of blogs that I check on the regular :) 

That is just a short list :) I follow a lot & the list would be super long if I named them all! Let me know if you would like me to list more!

Spring Breakers! (Matt & Shea edition)

Surprised him with chocolate covered strawberries when he arrived!
Us riding the T together! I was a happy girl :)
We went to the beautiful Boston Public Library...
and I made him take a million pictures with me because I loved having him here :)
We went to the Aquarium on a snowy day!
and I liked capturing candids of this cutie  
We enjoyed eating this delicious Buffalo Chicken Pizza...
and we still can't stop talking about this Mint Chocolate sundae!
I surprised Matt with tickets to see The Blue Man Group!
We were tourists for a day & took a trolley tour of Boston!
I love him so much ^^^^^
Oh & we made a trip to Whole Foods to try this Blue Print Juice cleanse...yum!

I have to say... Spring Break was one of the best weeks of my life! These pictures give you a little idea of what we did over our break. We ran around Boston but we also made meals together, played lots of board games, and watched movies! It was so nice to run around the town but we also enjoyed sleeping in and relaxing together. It was just so wonderful to BE TOGETHER in the same place :) We had the most amazing time and I loved every second spent with Matt. He makes me SO happy and I am so lucky to have such an amazing, caring, and loving guy in my life♥ He is such a gentleman and he always takes care of me. We always have the best time together and the 9 days we spent together over spring break were absolutely PERFECT! I cannot wait to spend the summer with this handsome guy.

Hope you all had/have a great Spring Break! xoxoxo

Fitness Blog Feature: Tone It Up

Hey loves! Since I just told you about my big health kick, I thought I would start a series where I share with you some of my favorite health/fitness blogs that I follow! I am constantly inspired by these women, their workouts, and their healthy lifestyles :) First up...the girls from Tone It Up!
These two lovely ladies are the founders of Tone It Up, Karena and Katrina. These women are such a big inspiration to me, I mean, look at them...who wouldn't want to be that fit?! I check their website daily because not only does it include daily blog posts, but it also includes recipes and information about their Tone It Up Nutrition Plan. I love watching their YouTube videos for my at home workouts, and I also follow their instagram for daily inspiration. You MUST check out their website! :)

On another note, I see Matt TOMORROW! I could not be more excited!!!
Have a wonderful day!

Sooo lately I have been on a big health kick! I started following a few health/fitness blogs and they really inspired me! Living Social had a great deal on a month pass to the Boston Sports Club, so I signed up and have been going to classes ever since! I am obsessssed with these classes. There are classes like spinning, cardio, kickboxing, yoga, 30 minute abs, upper and lower body strength, and of course ZUMBA! These classes are so fun and I leave feeling so happy and strong! I have also been making better food choices and the blogs that I follow have given me great tips & recipes! I can't wait to share them all with you :) Gotta get my summer beach body ready for when I am back in California!
Have a lovely day babes!

Benjamin Askinas.

A while back I had the pleasure of being asked to do a photo shoot with Benny Askinas. I wasn't quite sure what was in store, but Benny had a vision and I was so excited about the opportunity. These photos were taken for a photo class of his and as you can see, he's got skills. His work is always flawless and he has the amazing talent of capturing raw emotions. His work is absolutely incredible and I am such a big fan.
Please be sure to check out more of his work on his website:

I promise that you won't regret it.

Love is in the air this week!

 Since Valentine's day is tomorrow I thought it would be the perfect time to share with you one of my favorite wedding videos. No, I am not planning on getting married anytime soon, but I do have a little bit of an obsession with weddings. Who doesn't enjoy a good love story? What can I say...I just love LOVE. My friend showed this video to me last year and I was crying by the end. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! P.s. His vows at the end...unreal.

Have a lovely day!

P.s.s. Please don't let the crazy music in the beginning scare you away! :)

[view from our living room windows]
[our street from the right window]
[our street from the left window. cars were buried under the snow!]
[piles of snow in my neighborhood as I ventured to Beacon Hill to meet up with friends]
[in love with this picture, I love where I live]
[sinking into the snow!]
[had to walk in the streets because the sidewalks were covered in piles of snow]
[people playing & sledding in the Common! love it!!]
[wishing I was that little girl being pulled around in a sled instead of walking haha]
[yes, that is a car folks]
[The cute boutiques on Charles Street are even more beautiful with snow on the windows]
It was such a fun weekend & I absolutely loved the blizzard! Maybe it is just because I am a California girl so seeing Boston covered in a blanket of white just made me love this city even more. I kept going to my living room windows to peek out at the snow that was falling from every direction because I thought it was so beautiful. People were having snowball fights, building snowmen, and everything was shut down. There were no stores open, no restaurants open, the only action happening was people running through the streets and loving every minute of it. I found all of it so exciting! There were no cars on the road either so it was just complete emptiness... nothing but mountains of snow! I will never forget this weekend because it is one of the most beautiful things I have witnessed so far in Boston. Nemo, come back anytime :)

Inspiration for today...

[my favorite]

This weekend I spent a lot of time inside my apartment due to the blizzard that hit Boston (yes, the blizzard's name was Nemo). I needed some inspiration and I found some of these wonderful inspirational words and printed them out. Now, I have words of inspiration all around my room so that whether I'm cooped up from a storm or just running out the door to get to my class on time, I am always surrounded by encouraging messages to keep me going :) I hope these messages make you as happy as they make me.
Have a spectacular day!
