One of the best parts about living in Los Angeles is the ability to take advantage of the outdoors all year long. I love going to the beach, taking bike rides and of course… climbing mountains. I try to get way up high every week or two to get in a bit of exercise alongside an amazing view.

I’ve tried a bunch of hikes in and around LA and here are a few of my favorites: 

Red Rocks Canyon- This is a pretty tough one, and it’s as long as you’d like it to be. Definitely bring plenty of water and try to go when the sun’s not at it’s peak. Look out for lots of fun caves & big rocks.

The Grotto- This ones a little farther out, but just as fun. The scenery is more wooded and the hike bottoms out into a little cave with a stream running through. Very delightful. Perfect place for a little picnic before or after your hike!

Eagle Rock- This is one of my favorite views. The hike isn’t too taxing, but it’s quite beautiful. Great for a day date!

Will Rogers State Park- This one is close and easy with an awesome view of both mountains, downtown, and the beach. A trifecta of awesomeness, do it!

We love our spring flats, like wow. The demure are on of my favorites because of the plain color and detail in the lace pattern. They match with just about anything and work in a casual and fancy setting, depending on how you outfit them. 

Remember to save this weekend on flats with code, FLATS at checkout!

Life is busy. Life is fast. Life is just plain crazy. So I say this: get away. No, not run away. Get away just for a little while. Whatever it takes to bring you back to a state of sanity. Because I don't know about you, but sometimes my brain and emotions and even my body can only handle so much. Though working out or even talking on the phone can release stress for me, but sometimes the best way is to just be. To find a quiet place away and just breathe in the fresh air and not think. I know, that's a hard thing to do. To find a quiet place. To find fresh air. And lastly, to not think. But it's possible and often times more necessary for ourselves than we realize. If you can't doing this on a daily basis, try to find some time during your weekend to just be outdoors. It doesn't have to be a beach. It can be a local park or playground. Swing on a swing or sit on a park bench. Don't play with your phone. Don't even bring a book. Just be.  Did you know that when people are on lunch breaks and still browsing their phones or even reading a magazine, that's not a break for them mentally? Their brain is still being stimulated so you don't recharge like you think you really would. So this post is different than most posts I've written, but I think it's a reminder that we all need especially in this fast-paced world that we live in where it's always GO! GO! GO! When sometimes all we need is the permission to STOP.

Thanks for having me, Blowfish Shoes! Much Love, Ilene (aka illy) of Much Love, illy
