Ivanhoe, CA

Last weekend my boyfriend and I traveled down to Ivanhoe to spend the 4th of July with a friend. Haven't heard of Ivanhoe? That's okay: It's a farming town nestled in between lakes and hills, with a population of less than 5,000. With summer temperatures hovering around 105 degrees, a day spent at the lake was absolute perfection.

On the way down I got car fever, which resulted in this: 

What makes this video even more hilarious is...you can't hear the music. Awesome.


  1. I absolutely love your pictures in this post--the shape of the overall photo as well as the wonderful color/shades within each. The matte polish looks awesome!! I've never tried matte, but you've given me pause to reconsider!

    ps-my parents gave me the anne of green gables dvd's for christmas 5 or 6 years ago--best gift ever!

  2. I am so obsessed with your nail color now - such a perfect shade of blue!

    Mmm and I want some fruit now!

  5. omigod! the zoya mod polishes!! i've been meaning to buy that set but i keep forgetting. thanks for the reminder :)


  6. Those yellow shoes are KILLER. I love the way that yellow shoes can punch up any outfit.
    Your nail polish color is amazing. I love the blue.
    P.S. I always get car fever, which is why I dance and sing whenever I am in a moving vehicle. It helps.
