California Stuff




I have a few things in my back pocket I've been keeping to share with you readers and thought I'd put them all here in one post. These are some fun things for those who love California.

 Sorry I've been away too long. It's that nutty time of the year again and I can hardly catch my breath with all the end of school activities.

This is short and fun and I'll be back soon with a few new posts I'm working on in the middle of the night  : / and whenever possible!

In the meantime, I didn't want you to think I had forgotten you all so enjoy...


Love this Facebook page which posts gorgeous photos of California each day. ( Top photo also from We Love California.) If you are on Facebook and like their page you'll get their daily photos.

I caught this Vogue, Live Like A Local feature this week written by Bay Area native Sally Singer. She details her favorite shops and restaurants in San Francisco, Berkley and Oakland.

Digging this California T from this Etsy shop. They also have other states as well.




Etsy also has a lot of California necklaces that I would love to have especially this delicate one:

Kind of fun to have the Bay Area pendant, but how cute is the Disney one? Would also be darling on a charm bracelet, non?

How about this original vintage look letterpress print? The same tones as my Mom's day post. It could  be cute in a pool bath or where you want a pop of fun color and whimsy.

I think a California pillow would be a fun gift or souvenir. This Trina Turk one is in my favorite colors right now.

I couldn't resist adding this! For our furry buds... I think I'd like to order the cat as well. :)
(As if you could get a good mug shot of your pet for this, right?)

I leave you this...


Click on the almost x shape to the right of the HD to see in full screen which you must! I can't stop watching this. I feel so peaceful. This video was made by Andrew Julian and he has a Facebook page with his other videos of Paris and more. What a talented guy.


Hope you all have a lovely sunny weekend!

  2. So wonderful to see Big Sur again and driving along the Pacific Coast Highway. So beautiful! You live in a beautiful State. I will share this video with my family. Happy weekend!

  3. Big Sur.. my husband and I visited there BEFORE we were married (over thirty years ago!) and have been many times since. Such a beautiful state. I remember when we first moved here to WA state, people would make (negative) comments about Los Angeles.. I'd have to remind them that CA is a large state with EVERYTHING.. countryside, mountains, city, snow, desert, etc.. Hope you are enjoying your weekend Kim! xxleslie

    1. Leslie, Love Big Sur! I am dying to get back there soon. I think it's my favorite spot in the world. I know California is really amazing and there are so many parts of California that I still haven't seen like the desert. I do think people just think of L.A. when they think of it sometimes.
      Hope you had a nice weekend too!

  4. You are so lucky to live in California, Hubs and I were blown away by how much we loved CA on our trip last year....esp since we considered ourselves more NYC people. How wrong we were. We are definitely going back to CA, I can't get over how much there is to see in the state and how most everything is a couple of hours apart (ocean, desert, ranchland, lakes, cities, etc) We loved it.

    That video is awesome, I really enjoyed the Paris one too. Thanks for posting!

  7. Happy weekend! Love the cat. How cute is that? I know exactly what you mean about being busy. I feel the same way. I love your State, and can't wait to explore it again. I've only been to San Francisco for a short weekend, and Napa area briefly.

  8. Great post! California is a place which is high on my must-visit list. I must look at the Vogue article 'Live like a local' Sounds interesting.
