Carmel By-the-Sea & Big Sur, California CA

As much as I love planning for trips I decided to let go of the planning and join Jenny on her spontaneous trip to the Big Sur. We both weren't really sure what we were going to do or where to explore, but luckily Jenny's friend Natalie who lives in Carmel gave us a "Top 10 Things to do in Carmel." Not only did Natalie's tips help us plan the day, but as well as my host sister Maria who got the opportunity to live in Carmel during her exchange year. So, after we had lunch with Natalie we headed to Point Lobos and hiked the trail. And then after Point Lobos, we then headed to Garrapata State Park and oh my lord the view of the ocean from the park was breath taking. After that, we then drove through HWY 1 and simply appreciated the beautiful Coast of California.

Even though this trip was a one day thing to the Coast, I couldn't have felt more proud of where I live and what our planet provide us with these spectacular places to enjoy! Thank you Natalie and Carmel for the memories!

The Crossroads, Carmel, California CA

While we were walking around the cute shops at The Crossroads outlets we stopped at a smoothie shop and decieded to take a healthy shot. I personally wasn't as enthusiatic as Jenny because I've never been a huge fan of wheatgrass or ginger. So after debating which shot we were going to order we ended up trying the Fifty/Fifty shot that contains orange and wheatgrass and I have to say it wasn;t as bad as we imagined. I could say after drinking the shot I felt a bit healthier hahahah.

Rocky Creek Bridge, Big Sur, California CA

While we were at Rocky Creek Bridge, we were very privileged to see dolphins swim by the area and experience the beautiful scenery the mountain provided. What was even more amazing about this spot was how clear and blue you could see the ocean from above! Swimming was definitely on our mind, but we both knew it was going to be super cold regardless of the day being warm.

Monterey, California CA

After we explored Carmel we then headed to Monterey and had dinner at the coziest yet yummiest pizzeria that Natalie recommended. The place was called Tricycle Pizza and it was so delicious that we even got free cheesecakes because it was their first anniversary in running their buisness!

As much as I try avoiding Sephora when I go shopping, I always end up looking at all the makeup brands wishing they weren't expensive. But today was one of those days where I actually had a purpose and decided to upgrade my makeup. Enjoy!

Holidays

Calistoga, California CA

Fourth of July: A day where American's celebrate with fireworks, parades, and mouth watering BBQ's.

This year and like many others, my family and I watched the Fourth of July Parade in Calistoga and then headed for the fair, enjoying the rides with my cousin Anahi. I could say this is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate just because I love seeing the streets filled with everyone wearing their red, white and blue. After spending most of our day in Calistoga we then drove to Downtown Napa and waited for the fireworks and hanged out with friends afterward. And if you're really not familiar with this kind of celebration then I highly suggest you sometime in your lifetime coming to the states and celebrating a Fourth of July because it's that patriotic like in the movies.

Weekends, Fun & Games

Santa Rosa, California CA

I think I've come to realize that working a full time job is exhausting and hard. Not only that, but balancing my work schedule with summer plans can get very difficult. Luckily I have a 3 day weekend and I shall catch up with making more summer memories. So, for this weekend I decided to go to my local Epicenter which is a complex that has a combination of sports and entertainment and enjoyed the beauty of arcades with my auntie G.

Nu känner jag som en vuxen för att det är så svårt att hitta tid mellan mitt job och mina sommarplaner. Men nu som jag har en tredagarhelg kommer jag upptäcka mer av min sommar så efter jobbet åkte jag till en lokal som kallas för Epicenter och där kan man spelar i deras arcadesektion och ha det kul. Detta va en första gång att åka hit men min moster och jag hade roligt.

Petaluma Outlets, California CA

I think I have given up the "going window shopping" with my friends because at the end of the day I'm a sucker for buying anything that catches my attention. The end result involves me being broke for the next two weeks and then going window shopping again. Story of my life. Enjoy the pieces though!

Mölndal, Sweden SE

For those who do not know what Swedish Midsummer is, I suggest you packing your bags and traveling to Sweden. Midsummer is a day where you get to learn how to make your own flower crown, dance around a Maypole and wear a folkdräkt for a day! Not only does the day consist of doing those things, but as well as listening to folk music and singing! Eating loads of potatoes and herring is completely normal! Especially drinking snaps which is alcohol. Another thing you must know about Midsummer is that if you find 7 different kind of flowers and place them under your pillow. Your Prince Charming such as the person you will marry, will appear in your dreams and will become your love of your life. Unfortunately, I forgot to do that so I guess I'll have to wait till next summer! No rush though! Lastly Midsummer is always celebrated on the countryside and is always on a Friday. Midsummer was one of my favorite holidays in Sweden and even though I'm not in Sweden here are some pictures from last year. Glad Midsummer to my Swedish families and friends! See you guys soon!

För er som vet inte vad Svensk Midsommar är kan rekommendera dig att åka dit och uppleva firandet själv! Midsommar är en dag när man lär sig hur man gör en krans, dansa, och använda en folkdräkt för en dag! Dagen slutar inte där men man också lyssna på folkmusik och sjunger mycket! Snaps är ett måste när man firar Midsommar för att det är hur man få ett fint röst när du sjunger Helan går! hihihi Jag skulle fortsätta om vad midsommar är men ni som är svensk och läser detta vet mer än jag och vet hur man firar en riktigt underbart midsommar! Även om jag är inte i Sverige tänkt jag att visa några bilderna från för året och vill ÖNSKAR ER EN GLAD MIDSOMMAR! Saknar er men vi ses snart!

Puss och kram!

Stinson Beach, California CA

It was one of those years where my birthday landed on a weekend and we just had to celebrate in some way. So, why not the beach and escape the intense heat wave that was passing through that weekend! While my friends were experiencing a 103 F weather, my cousin Anahi and I were experiencing a 80 F kind of day. Since Stinson Beach was only an hour away from where we live we decided to stop for the classic In & Out and then hit the road by blasting music and simply living life to the fullest. Definitely recommend going earlier because finding parking is hard.

Det är en av de åren när min födelsedag landade på en helg och ville fira det på något sätt. Jag och min kusin Anahi tänkte att åka till stranden från där vi bor och fira min 19 års dag! Innan vi åkte dit gick vi till den klassiska In & Out hamburgare stället som bara finns i Kalifornia och bara levande life lite och uppskattade det fina vädret vi fått den helgen.
