I’ve been a bit stressed over the past week, a lot of unknowns, and new things. So when I saw this picture it instantly brought me back to carefree days of college in Santa Barbara. With the beach close enough to drive by, walk to, or layout, bikinis in every color, friends to join, and the beautiful scenery, how could you not feel like you’re on a stress free vacation every day? Oh the days of little worry, just the occasional ‘I gotta get to class’ or ‘what to wear for the next party’…

To decompress and take me back to the good ole days, I put together my getaway/retreat essentials… sometimes all it takes is a therapeutic blog post =)

On another note, Happy Cinco De Mayo! Hope you’re able to enjoy yummy guac, an iced cold margarita, and this amazing weather!
