The majority of my posts revolve around the dazzling beach city I live in. I love sharing travel inspiration, visitor guides, and local lifestyle. I have a very beach inspired and casual vibe.

So excited to make some connections!

They’re open! The Taco Stand in Laguna Beach is on Cleo Street and PCH. Their outdoor space is cute and the menu is straightforward. @b_bythe_sea and I went by for a late night snack and ordered beer, carne asada fries, and churros. I can’t wait to go back and try all the TACOS! Would you believe that I had to be shown how to use this their beer opener?!? I’ve always used something hand held. 😅 PS - I officially love churros now. #mylagunabeach #lagunabeachguide #bestoflagunabeach #allthingslagunabeach #lagunabeachrestaurants #orangecountyrestaurants #orangecountyfood #orangecountyblogger

I’ve wanted my septum pierced for a long time! In my 20’s I must have been fearless or something because I had a LOT of piercings (you name it, I probably pierced it). 😆 But I never did my septum because I thought my nose was way too big. Then in my 30’s I had acne and I didn’t want to draw attention to my face. Then I realized pretty soon I’ll feel too old for a piercing. So on January 1st I started my year with a bang and got a cute lil piece of metal in my face (well maybe not so little, I can downsize once it heals). LIFE IS SHORT, GET THE PIERCING! Thank you @lagunagoldpiercing and @dg_piercing. ✨✨✨ #septumpiercing #lagunagoldpiercing #lagunabeachbusiness #lagunabeachliving #lagunabeachlocals #lagunalocals #welovelagunabeach #mylagunabeach

I never planned on making a 2022 recap but Instagram offered me an extra bonus for using this template. As I was putting together all these memories I was overcome with so much gratitude! I live in a stunning city and I have freakin amazing people in my life. So thank you Instagram for reminding me how beautiful the small moments can be. 🤍 2023 I’m coming for you.

Merry Christmas friends! Top photo circa 1988. Bottom photo 2017.

Little known fact about me: Once upon a time I had this secret fantasy of starting a podcast. Actually, I still think about it sometimes! 🎙️💭 So you can imagine I was pretty excited to watch the recording of the @RickKellyShow right here in Laguna Beach. I had so much fun being part of the live audience! Kelly was the sweetest, everybody was energetic, there were lots of laughs, @TBD___Studios is classy AF, @ElizabethLynVargas made an appearance, and chef @ChrisTzorin cooked for us. Follow @TBD___Studios for future events or to book your own! Maybe one day I’ll be recording a podcast there. 😉 💎💎💎 #lagunabeachbusiness #lagunabeachstudio #lagunabeachphotographer #lagunabeachevents #lagunabeachcommunity #lagunabeachlife #lagunabeachlocals #lagunalocals #allthingslagunabeach #thingstodoinlagunabeach #rhoc #realhousewivesoforangecounty #rickandkellyshow

When was the last time you posted a photo on Instagram? I haven’t posted a photo in over three months!!! And even this was supposed to be a reel of me awkwardly climbing this tree (it’s higher than it looks)! But I lost the video somehow so I’m just posting photos. Like the good old days. #imisstheoldinstagram I love that you can see the ocean from one side of Moulton Meadows Park, and valleys on the other side. Truly SO grateful to live somewhere as gorgeous as Laguna Beach. Did you know I have tons of Laguna Beach GUIDES?! Under the guides tab of Instagram! Let me know if there are any categories you’d like to see. 🏝️ #lagunabeachguide #explorelagunabeach #visitlagunabeach #livelagunabeach #allthingslagunabeach #mylagunabeach #lagunabeachlocals #lagunalocals #lagunabeachlove #welovelagunabeach

Random fact about me: I do NOT have a sweet tooth at all. So why did I go to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory? Because I was feeling nostalgic and wanted a caramel apple. 🍏 When I walked in I had no idea so many varieties could exist! I picked a walnut caramel apple and I was 100% prepared to get my face messy like when I was a kid, but I was surprised they chopped it for me! HOLY CRAP!!! It. was. heavenly. Brandon got a marshmallow on a stick thingy and chocolate covered licorice. So here’s a post enticing you to go to @rockymountain_chocolatefactory right on PCH across from Main Beach. You’re welcome. 🍫🍫🍫 #lagunabeachguide #lagunabeachlife #lagunabeachlove #lagunabeachlocals #lagunabeachbusiness #welovelagunabeach #mylagunabeach #visitlagunabeach #allthingslagunabeach #thingstodoinlagunabeach #rockymountainchocolatefactory

This brand is now 90% of my skincare regimen! • Kristin By The Ocean

This isn’t the first time I have mentioned Shine Skincare Co. and it wo The mask dried in about 15 minutes, going from dark to light; which let’s you know that it’s time to wash it off. The Antioxidant Body Wash smells a little fruity and the Antioxidant Body Lotion smells faintly like damp grass. and if you’re ready to start feeling good about what you use on your body, you need to check out their products!

Enchant your senses with luxurious Austin Press candles! • Kristin By The Ocean

My boyfriend bought me this Austin Press candle over a year ago from a local boutique. I couldn’t tell you how many I’ve bought and burned through since then because I’m OBSESSED with the scent! Inside, each candle comes with a story card that describes the scent in such enchanting detail that you feel yourself being transported to another world. the reason I asked if you ever wished you could wear a candle scent as a perfume is because I was browsing their website and saw they had PERFUME OILS of their candle scents!

5 reasons why you MUST try Urth Beauty natural soap! • Kristin By The Ocean

Although I’m fairly new to the handmade soap world, I’m in love with Urth Beauty. The demand for Palm Oil has caused the immense deforestation of some of the most diverse forests in the world and destroys the homes of endangered species! Just because a company uses quality ingredients doesn’t always mean THOSE ingredients were harvested ethically. Along with natural soap bars, you’ll find deodorant, body butters, lip balms, and their popular brow primer!

Chiky Botanica ~ Self care infused with desert magic. • Kristin By The Ocean

Even the way you could see through miles and miles of land, sparsely populated with rare Joshua trees, didn’t register in my mind as anything special. Thus I discovered Chiky Botanica, a woman-owned business based in the mountains of southern California. The High Desert roll-on oil smells EXACTLY like my hometown! As an advocate for self love and self care, I highly recommend Chiky Botanica!
