We Got a New Puppy!

          My husband and I have been looking for a Pomeranian puppy for a couple of weeks.  I've been wanting a dog since we moved to California two years ago.  We moved recently and made sure to get a new place that allows pets.  We had planned to go to Japan right now for our first year wedding anniversary (March 29th) but obviously that trip got canceled.  Instead, we wanted to celebrate our anniversary with a new family member.  We thought it would be the perfect way to celebrate.  We found him on AKC.org.  Of course, it would be nice to adopt from a shelter but shelters in California are super expensive and it would be very difficult to find a pom puppy.  He is now 11 weeks old and is so loving and cute.  He has a ton of energy and such a funny personality.  His name is Luca and if you want to follow him, I made an Instagram page @pompuppyluca.  I plan on doing a part two of this post with some more photos and updates from time to time.

Topanga State Park

           Hello! First off, I need to say that these photos were taken with my phone so I am sorry that they aren't the best quality.  I don't like to bring my big camera on hikes.  This past weekend we went hiking at Topanga State Park.  This was our second time visiting.  Last time it was late summer and it was super hot and we said we wanted to return in the spring to finish the same hike we had started.  We walked to a waterfall that had a very slow trickle, but it was still a beautiful hike.  I don't know the name of this exact hike but it is one of the more popular trails.  This is a mountainous park so you are surrounded by rocky cliffs and valleys.  There were lots of flowers starting to pop up all over the place because it's almost spring.  I kept having to stop at each flower bush because they were making me so happy!  We recently moved closer so I think we will be back from time to time.  You have to pay to get in but there is a lot of free street parking just outside.  I am wearing this super basic outfit that is mostly from H&M.  I got this white, ribbed knit t-shirt last weekend.  I love it because it is super comfortable and much better quality than other basic t-shirts.  They are affordable and from the conscious collection.  I also have a black one.

Puffy Sleeve Trend

I have always loved puffy sleeves.  It's been so long since I have worn them because they haven't been in style for a while.  I think everybody got sick of them.  They are starting to come back, though.  I love this shirt because it has puffy sleeves and ruffles on top.  It's made of super pretty eyelet lace fabric.  I think it looks so cute underneath overalls.  I feel like the silhouettes complement each other really well.  We have been exploring our new area recently and went to the beach twice this weekend here, in Manhattan Beach.
