Dreamy Silk Tunic + How To Wear It

Happy Fri-YAY and welcome back to one of my personal favorite places to be, Forge A Frenzy!

So, just a mini recap on my life, moving across the country can take a lot out of ya. And when you find your energy after that process, normally making friends/unpacking box after box takes priority over my endless and growing blog to-do list. Now that things are settled, I have been able to finally take time to focus on what I love most, being creative and designing beautiful things.

1000 Steps Beach + My Exploration Uniform

Welcome back to Forge A Frenzy and happy hump day!

I have been furiously working to get my photography portion of Forge A Frenzy (@MadisonCrowleyPhotography on Insta) up and running. I have been editing like a crazy woman and finally putting all of my work into one place –> my portfolio page under the photography tab!! It is super exciting for me and I would LOVE to do a shoot for you! I have a ‘details and pricing’ info page under the photography tab as well. I love taking photos and I would be thrilled to take yours.

ANYWAYS back to the topic of this post – 1000 STEPS BEACH IN LAGUNA BEACH. Wow, when we (my little sister, Morgan, and her bff, Cleopatra) wanted to go somewhere close to explore, Laguna Beach was the first thing that came to mind. Only a 20 minute drive from Newport and generally no traffic. P.S. avoid toll roads at all costs. I had seen 1000 Steps Beach on Pinterest very frequently and was curious how to get there and how to get to the place where everyone took the famous (ish) photos.

La Jolla + The Cave Store

Hi frenzies!

Last weekend, some friends and I ventured down to San Diego to explore and meet up with some friends who were Airbnb-ing a beach house. The people part definitely didn’t go as planned (real life people really DO do cocaine), but the exploring part was even better than we anticipated.

On our way back the morning after an awesome turned horrible night, we stopped in La Jolla because one of my friends that I was with, Kayla, she rocks, mentioned that she had heard about a store that you could enter and it was like a little gift shop and then you pay $5 to walk down stairs and into a cave! I loooooove caves and secret staircases and hidden gems so this was like music to my ears. We put it in the GPS and headed to La Jolla from Pacific Beach.
