One Way to the beach!
Happy Monday Everyone! I know the blog was a little light last week, but if you follow me on Instagram then you know that I was in California shooting a social media campaign for my friends at Old Navy. When the e-mail came through to participate in the shoot I was beyond excited. There are so many incredible bloggers out there with a much bigger following than I have, but when these opportunities present themselves I always remember the words of my uncle who said to me the week before I won the Wilhelmina Fitness Model Search: Why not you? So, if there is something you want to do, but are afraid to do; look in the mirror today and ask yourself the same question. Why not you?
Views on Views Over L.A.
Worked up a sweat, but we made it to the top!
Zappos Meets Wilhelmina Family
Over my five days on the left coast I completely fell in L-O-V-E with everything about L.A. and the surrounding areas. I was able to spend time wandering around the streets Santa Monica, spent time with family friends including personal trainer and rockstar Blake O’Brian in Manhattan Beach, went to hike Runyon Canyon and drove through Beverly Hills, past Grumman’s Chinese Theatre and every lust-worthy, insta-worthy backdrop you could imagine with my childhood friend!

There is Beauty Everywhere
I must have walked to the Santa Monica Pier and back ten times during my trip, but every time I left the hotel I found myself taking the “scenic route”! If you fine yourself in Santa Monica make sure to stroll to the pier and the Third Street Promenade. There are gardens and farmers market restaurants where even your comfort food is locally sourced and nutrient dense!
Yes to every bite!
Making my way to the pier!

It is even beautiful at night!
KALE me crazy, but I cannot wait to come back!
California is really the mecca of healthy living! With nearly perfect weather most of the year and organic farm to table food on every corner; I almost intentionally missed my flight to Vegas. I will be back in August for the final Propel event and I seriously cannot wait! I got a new camera, and I absolutely adore it (clearly), so today’s post is simply a photo diary of my time in beautiful Southern California! [Mom…I hope you are proud of my shots LOL]
Comment below with your can’t mis spots in L.A. so I can make sure to visit at the end of the summer!
