Pulling these photos up from the archives, they were too pretty not to post! Amanda and I frequented the Getty Museum a while back and were impressed with the variety in art and beautiful outdoor spaces. Some of our favorites are posted above, I especially loved the room we were in the fourth photo of me and Amanda. Let us know what your favorites from the Getty are! Also, if any of you have any recommendations for museums around LA or SD, let us know! We’d love to visit them and we would appreciate it! Have a fantastic day,

This summer I visited Wonderspaces, an interactive pop up museum in San Diego. The exhibits were very aesthetically eye-catching, colorful, clever, and fun! Above are some of the exhibits, my favorite was the exhibit featured in the second photo, it was essentially a dark room with holes poking out where light streamed through. I thought it mimicked a starry night and enjoyed how the artist sought to replicate that natural phenomenon. Hope you enjoy the photos!
As promised, here is my Alaska post! I went on vacation with my family earlier this summer and visited the ports of Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway. We also visited Tracy Arm Fjord (first picture) and witnessed a massive glacier peeking out between two mountain tops! Alaska was very rural and had towns populating with 2,000 people or less – a stark contrast from growing up in the city! The pictures in this post are some of my favorites from the trip. Enjoy!
Hello and apologies for the radio silence. Both Tiffany and I had a busy 5 weeks but we’re back in full force and ready to continue our weekly updates. Here is a video of our weekend in San Diego. Tiffany is well-versed with La Jolla so we mainly stayed around the area. Let me know your thoughts on the video! -Amanda

I hope you all are having a lovely week! This week’s outfit features a juxtaposition between femininity and masculinity. I paired a floral off the shoulder top with my black distressed boyfriend jeans. To feature my off the shoulder top, I wore my chelsea boots and black floppy hat and a dark purple lip to add a more neutral look. This was a perfect day to head to San Diego’s Little Italy district to visit their farmers market, highly recommend you check it out 🙂 Thank you for visiting, have a great week!
Day 2 in Portland involved going to a handful of gardens and city parks.
Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm
This year’s Wooden Shoe Tulip Fest fell between March 24th – April 30th. We visited the farm right at the beginning of the festival, which wasn’t the most optimal time since many of the tulips were still budding. Nevertheless, it was great to get away from the city and see the nearby vineyards and sprawling fields. You can catch the festival within the next few days until April 30th.
Note: do not be like ill-prepared me and wear your nice sneakers to Wooden Shoe. Rain boots are a must since the fields are wet from the constant Pacific Northwest rain.
Woodburn Premium Outlets
We didn’t have any plans to go mall shopping while on vacation, but Woodburn Premium Outlets was so close to Wooden Shoe that it just made sense to stop by. Woodburn Premium Outlets is like any other outlet, but I couldn’t pass on no sales tax in Oregon (Los Angeles sadly has 8.75% sales tax & San Francisco has 8.5%). I bought a couple blouses and a North Face jacket (for $30!!!).
Located 10 minutes away from Downtown Portland, Forest Park hugs the west side of the city and boasts roughly 70 miles of hiking trails. You’ll understand why it has to rain constantly after visiting Forest Park because the whole thing is filled with lush greenery. There are multiple entrances into Forest Park so keep the GPS at bay. We took the Wildwood Trail and stumped upon this mini waterfall shown below. Forest Park is definitely one of my fave gems in Portland.
PS: We also saw a beautiful view of Downtown Portland on the way to Forest Park and couldn’t help but stop by for a quick snap.
Mt. Tabor Park
We visited Mt. Tabor the morning we left for the airport but I decided to cram it in this post. Visiting in the morning meant we encountered locals making their morning jogs. The view of downtown Portland is also nice from here. Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for the last Portland segment which will feature food + drinks. Hold on tight because it’s a long one! -Amanda
I have finally dug up photos from my archives during my trip to Arizona last winter. Please excuse the tardiness, but I really wanted share them with you! I was able to travel with friends around Arizona, and compiled some photos from places I thought were very scenic. This first post I curated consists of photos from Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Stay tuned for future installments, enjoy!
Grand Canyon, Arizona
Amanda and I will be alternating our travel posts, so stay tuned! 🙂
I have so so much love for Portland and its surrounding area. My family and I visited from March 26th – 28th, and had the most memorable time eating from food trucks, chasing waterfalls, and perusing boutique shops. Click the icon above to watch my attempting at documenting this lovely place.
This video is part 1 of my Portland travel series. In Part 2, I will elaborate on my experiences and thoughts from Day 1 attractions. Likewise in Part 3, I will talk about Day 2. Part 4 will wrap up with my dining and eatery experiences.
Thanks for visiting! – Amanda
Apologies for the delay. I finally compiled a video from when Tiffany visited me in LA. Here are some featured locations which we will later dedicate separate blog posts for: The Getty Center, The Broad Museum, Santa Monica, Grand Central Market, The Last Bookstore… Thanks for visiting and hope you enjoy the short video! -Amanda
