Salvation Mountain

I'm gonna do a #TBT inspired post (Throwback Thursday for you older folk who are still catching up with internet lingo) even though it is a Saturday. Let's call it... "#BackInTheDaySaturday". Kinda sounds like one of those tag lines you hear on a classic hip hop radio station, right?

Anywayyyyy my friends and I took a little road trip back in September to a magically hot place called Slab City which you may have read about in 'Into The Wild'. We visited Salvation Mountain and The Salton Sea. 
Salvation Mountain is a beautiful hill full of art and is in the middle of nowhere…literally. It's in the middle of a desert and at the time I went it was about 106 degrees. The infamous Sarah Grunder I always mention nearly had a heat stroke, luckily we got her in the car with A/C and water before anything serious happened. We laugh about it now... :)
This is one of the most amazing places I've been to, probably because I've never seen anything like it. All the dedication, the history behind this place and the creator, the love poured into it and the message it gives. (Google Leonard Knight & Salvation Moutain) AMAZING!

About 20 minutes away from Salvation we went to The Salton Sea which is actually the largest lake in California and is apparently saltier than the Pacific Ocean. It felt as if we were in the post Apocalyptic age. We were in an abandoned town right next to the lake and the shores lining the lake were covered with fish skeletons and old furniture. That place was a little unsettling ...eerie vibes for sure. 

Oh yah and those Dinosaurs you'll see below are a Dinosaur Measume and gift shop along the way to Salvation. Haha it was quite the trip!

West Hollywood

It was a lazy Sunday per usual Mike and I didn't crawl out of bed till about 10:30 am, we made some breakfast, I painted my face and threw on some clothes and we left for West Hollywood which has almost become a weekend ritual. West Hollywood is my favorite place in LA that I've found in my time living here. Melrose Avenue specifically is where I go. They have a fun market every Sunday, it has my favorite coffee shops, great places to eat and tons and tons of vintage and second hand stores.
I was just really obsessed with my weekend get-up and that's why I had to share it with you all. I loooove this vintage inspired duster jacket that goes great with so many things but since it was a lazy Sunday I thought comfy boyfriend jeans were a must. I threw on some suede platform heels, a big ol' jingly necklace and some arm cuffs adorned with tigers eye and turquoise from Nepal. Super cute, huh?
Now all there was left for the day was getting the oil changed in the car, a soy latte, and feeling like a kid in a candy store walking down Melrose Ave. gawking over Dr. Martens and 70's band tees.
