Seven Magic Mountains

For travelers heading towards Sin City, Nevada I suggest taking a pit stop and visit Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains, which is located in about 5 miles off the 15 fwy in the desert outside of Las Vegas. It’s open to the public and definitely a site to see!

That One Time I Bought a Banana Republic Sweater for $0.79

In Southern California, “cold weather” is defined when temperatures drop below 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Yesterday happen to fall into the said category, allowing me to finally pull out my sweaters out of the back corners of my closet.

This cowl-neck oversized sweater from Banana Republic is one of my absolute favorites. It’s thick, it’s warm, it’s oversized. Sweaters have a tendency to make the wearer look “lazy” but this one does the opposite. If anything, I feel more polished and put-together!

Fun Fact: I own a Banana Republic credit card, which I get rewards on for purchases I make. I receive a $10 reward card for every $200 I spend elsewhere. This sweater was on final sale for $30.00, and after using with my rewards, I paid merely $0.79! Even the associates’ minds were blown. W I N N E R. I love scoring a good bargain!

El Matador Beach, CA

El Matador Beach, California

EMB

With summer almost coming to an end, my cousin and I packed our beach bags, had a joy ride along the Pacific Coast Highway and headed to beautiful El Matador Beach.

Just a few miles north of Malibu, El Matador Beach showcases towering cliffs and enormous rock formations, making one question whether they’re in Southern California at all! The crashing waves splashing against the rocks make the beach a perfect spot for a scenic photoshoot!
