Much love,

Official Sayonara Summer Blog Hop

I am SO beyond excited to introduce the first annual Sayonara Summer Blog Hop! What’s this, you ask? It is my cathartic way of coping with the end of summer ~ saying farewell to unending sun rays and beach days so that I can just as easily welcome Fall with open arms!

The idea of the blog hop is to brighten the mood a little bit (sensing I’m not the only one trying to chase away summertime sadness) and give some ways we can embrace the coming of Fall and all it’s wonders!

We are featuring some epic stories and exciting how-to’s from amazing business professionals in Orange County, Arizona and Portland throughout the month of September.

The blog hop will feature:

  • food connoisseurs
  • farm owners
  • book enthusiasts
  • photographers


Giveaways + Stay Tuned and Check Back Often!

Every week during the month of September, a new Blog Hop Host will be posting their own special post (on their own blog) and we will feature that web link right here. Each Blog Hop Host is offering a special giveaway! So be sure to read the full post and enter to win!

SoCal Summer | A Few of My Fave Things

Beachin’ in Huntington

Huntington Beach Summer Blog Sunset Beach

The beach is my getaway. It’s what gives me peace from the crazy conundrum that is the 405. {All my Cali peeps know what I mean!} My favorite beach in Cali is Huntington Beach. I love the laid back surfer vibe. And the new posh, Pacific City elevates the scene to a whole new level. Definitely my favorite spot for a beach walk after a long day of work or during my lunch break!

Lunch at Greenleaf!

Green leaf Costa Mesa

Greenleaf in Costa Mesa is delish. Not only does it have fresh ingredients, but it’s generally pretty healthy. Beach bod, here I come!  They have great salads and their turkey sandwich on a pretzel bun is amazing!

Check out the yummy details {of photo above}:

Lemongrass Chicken Salad

scarborough farms baby mixed greens, grilled chicken, mango, grilled pineapple, jicama, popcorn shoots, toasted coconuts, cashews & thai chili with lemongrass lychee

Turkey Melt on Pretzel Bread

aged cheddar, spinach, caramelized onion with truffle oil & Greenleaf signature whole grain mustard aioli

Mmm yes please!

Portola Coffee Lab

Costa Mesa portolaPortola Coffe Lab

Portola Coffee Lab in Costa Mesa is a hip coffee shop where business people {and hipsters} have their morning coffee and open up their Macbooks to look important. Yes, I’m guilty as charged. 😉

I love the environment here, and the coffee is crazy good. But beware, the wifi is super slow, and you might have to fight over electrical outlets to charge your laptop. Otherwise, it’s a great meeting spot for clients or friends.

Starbucks + Intern =


Not only do I love my morning Starbucks, but my cute intern, Ashley, has made my summer so worthwhile ! I’m so excited to bring my new team member on board ~ she’s been such a treat to work with.

Doodling at Kean Coffee in Newport


Yes, I know, more coffee… What can I say? I’m in love! My adventure at Kean Coffee consisted of drinking coffee-and yes- doodling, which I have found is an amazing stress reliever. It’s always important to rest and relax and take time to recalibrate.

Drinks by the Beach

Dana Point? CA

It was my first time visiting Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, and I wish I never left. Had drinks with former Global Technical Director for DreamWorks Animation. Such a relaxing afternoon with a beautiful view of the resort that juts up next to the ocean shore. 

The Santa Ana River Trail

River Walk?Huntington:Newport

The Santa Ana River Trail is another great getaway during the summer! The trail starts in San Bernardino County and extends 110 miles to the ocean between Huntington and Newport. Before you get all excited about 110 miles, I ran the trail for two and stopped in the middle of it to look at the ocean! 😉

Universal Studiosssss!

Universal Studios

I thought it was high time to step outside of my Orange County bubble and make a trip to the faraway land of…LA. HAHA. It truly is a different world over there. My intern and I headed to Universal Studios last week and had a blast. AND we even survived the traffic! But – is it too soon to say that I’m glad to be back in my bubble? 😉

I hope you enjoyed my So Cal Summer adventures! What have you been up to this summer? Comment below, and let me know if you have recommendations of other great places to visit on the West Coast.
