Back in Sac

Yes, yes, yes!!!!! I am back! And to be quite honest, I knew it would be hard, but I didn’t think it would be this hard.

A week in, and I hit the winter blues. Bad! Is it because it gets dark at 4pm?Is it because I went from being totally busy to being totally available? I don’t know. But adjusting to the old routine (or at least a portion of it) is more difficult than I expected.

I feel like I’m not doing enough nice things. Or I’m not helping enough people. Or like I’m not needed here. It’s weird. Maybe I just miss my friends abroad…

So anywho, to keep myself busy and entertained (distracted would probably be a better word), Ollie and I FINALLYYYYY got around to going out!

The plans differed completed from what we had first envisioned, but the important thing is that we went!

‘The plan’ was to see some morning dew at the Foresthill Bridge. Morning dew kind of implies the whole idea of waking up early to be there for the, well, morning. And for us girls, that means waking up at like 5 AM to shower, plaster on our faces, have breakfast (duh), and then of course the drive. And even then, maaayyybe we’d get there before noon.

We woke up at 5.

Then again at 6.

Then we altogether decided we’d go to watch the sunset.(Who are we fooling, we are NOT morning folk, people!)

Ollie got to take out her camera and I got to take out mine, and we basically just practiced being totally horrible photographers that day.

See for yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰



Note to self: Do not wear heel booties on adventures with even the slightest inclines. The struggle will be real!


I should warn you now, it took us some time to getย to the actual bridge. Our A.D.D. had us stopping at nearly every wall, tree, and bush.ย ๐Ÿ˜…


The precious 730 foot bridge. Apparently the highest one in all the land of Sacramento.


We can’t forget the mossy tree Ollie became well acquainted with. This woman decides to climb that beast for the sole purpose of capturing the perfect “shoe-shot”.


I mean, girl, I loooveee your shoes and all, but this tree is ON A HILL… and you’re wearing my clothes. lol


Made for some beautiful photos though, I kid you not.


Isn’t she precious?


Drum roll please!!!! Behold,ย the infamous “shoe-shot” winner!


… Ok fine, back towards the bridge…


But first, let’s take a selfie!






Unfortunately, people have climbed under this bridge irresponsibly and ruined it for the rest of us trying to trespass. The darn thing was so well gated, I wasn’t about to climb that in heels. Fearย not, these photos will suffice ๐Ÿ™‚


My absoluteย favorite thing about these finds is the grafitti. I mean check. it. out!IMG_1062IMG_1068IMG_1067IMG_1065

Babe โค


And just as we’re about to leave, because well, the sun set and neither one of us were properly dressed for the freezing weather, the fog rolled in!

Looks like everything was turning out perfectly…. Except my camera died! And I left the spare battery in my car (I know, shame on me! Amateur.)… Luckily, we were able to sneak in these two photos ๐Ÿ™‚ย IMG_1072IMG_1023


Ok. So maybe one or two photos turned out decently. But don’t be fooled! It was probablyย because of sheer luck, crazy lightroom edits, tons of makeup, or the fact that Olesya (my beautiful cosmetologist sister) invested a good two hours into my hair cut and Ollie’s cornrows!

Maybe you think my style of editing is totally bland, flat, lacks creativity, or whatever other words you can use to describe horrible photos. If that’s you, then you should (keep your comments to yourself) probably follow Ollie’s blog to see our adventure through her lens ๐Ÿ˜‰ …Or I should say through her edits. lol

Till the next adventure ๐Ÿ™‚

-XoXo, Oxie-
