California Luv

   Being a firm believer in reincarnation, I am certain of having lived in California over many lifetimes. The warm breezes of the ocean air to the mountains strewn along the shoreline was very clear to me when I first stepped foot onto Cali soil in 2009, that I need to live here someday. Two weeks under the sun (with 50 SPF!!) left me with an amazingly beautiful tan that has lasted me well into autumn. However, this particular vacation flew past me in the blink of an eye!
   From the moment I stepped off the plane my friend Lexi drove me to the In N Out Burger, a mouth watering staple, inconveniently located only on the west coast. Afterwards we hiked Runyon Canyon to burn off those calories and oh boy did I hike all those trails during my entire stay... I certainly came back home with some serious buffed up legs! (and a nice booty too!)
   During my first few days I explored around Venice beach and was able to snap some sweet shots of skateboarders in action, street art graffiti and even had my first surf lesson at the beach by the Santa Monica Pier. I also made time to meet up with one of my sweetest friends from college, Elise. We managed to catch up on our adventures within the last few years after graduating and later that day we ventured off to Hollywood Blvd where we felt like true tourists reading every star's name along the walk of fame. You can check out her amazing photography portfolio at (Super happy to see her beautiful smile again!!)
   Altogether my first week was full of divine intervention and it was very welcoming to feel alive and free from the everyday grind that NYC often serves up as a daily dish. Even though I am back in my city I've continued in adhering to a healthy diet of nutritious fruits, vegetables, well balanced meals and the occasional juicy burgers! ;-)
