Flower Fields and Rainbows

Southern California got a ton of much needed rain these past couple months.  With all that rain, came beautiful blooms.  Fields of flowers have sprouted everywhere.  A couple weeks ago, Angel and I got some great shots in some flower fields right by our house.  We even incorporated a crystal prism to get some cool rainbow effects.  Hope you enjoy!

My Braces Journey with Smile Direct Club

It's official!  My 9 month journey with braces is over.  There have been good days and bad days, and today I'm sharing everything.

So let's start from the beginning...

I never really noticed that I had crooked teeth till about 18 years old.  Funny thing, it was a little kid who pointed it out.  He told a friend of mine that I would be a 10 if only I got my teeth fixed.  What a little SHIT.  Ever since that day I became super aware of my smile.  As the years past, the shifting and crowding got worse.  I started blogging and I became SUPER aware of my teeth in photographs.  Not to mention that my dentist would always bring up the "have you thought about braces" talk every time I visited.  That's when I realized  enough was enough.  If this bothered me so much, it was time for me to do something about it.  I went to my dentist and asked her to quote me for Invisalign.  She came back with a quote of $3000+ and over a year of trays.  Around this same time, my husband and I were getting ready to move overseas for 3 years.  So, I decided to wait until we got back to finally do it.

Photo Diary: LA for my Birthday + a Few New Favorite Spots

For my 31st birthday Angel and I headed up to LA for the weekend.  We live just a couple of hours away so it was a fun getaway.  Lately, we've headed to LA more frequently and always find ourselves wanting to do more.  This time, we decided not to stay for the usual 12 hours.  We took advantage of the long weekend and booked a room at The Nomad Hotel.  Explored a few new spots, enjoyed our beautiful hotel, and even got to spend time with family who I haven't seen in years.

In today's post, I'll be sharing some photos and recommendations for your next visit to LA.
