Mammoth Vibes

IMG_7944If you had to choose ONE place in the entire world to go to with a snap of a finger, whenever you needed to unwind, where would it be?

My answer would be Mammoth, hands down. I am sure some of you already knew that based on older posts. Whenever I have an ounce of time, I always make an effort to travel there. I have so much history and so many memories there because Mammoth was a staple family vacationing spot every summer growing up.

We all lead such busy lives, where we are constantly hustling from one enterprise to another. It is extremely important to TREAT YO SELF, every once in a while. Mammoth is my treat. I am completely and utterly in love with this near perfect place.

Most tourists (and even locals) go there after a long day on the slopes or a strenuous hike, and cool off with a flight of beers, which is about $5 (for 6 different tastings) and some snacks (yes, they added an eatery in there)! I highly recommend that you go! The Golden Trout Ale and Double Nut Brown are my favorite! The inside of the brewery is spacious and cozy, but if you want to enjoy the view of the mountains or fresh air, there is a lovely outdoor area with benches to relax.

On the Road: Wanderlust

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

Wanderlust (n): a strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world.

Often times, people associate travel as a form of escape – those who like to travel, are essentially running away from something. As Halfsies, we feel that those who have a strong desire to travel or explore, are not running away, but searching for something. Quite possibly searching for themselves. I guess our entire life is based on little moments of self-identity, but travel and exploration can really uncover a side of ourselves or the world, that we never knew existed.

Grab some friends, clothes, a camera, and jump in the car. You never know what you will find.

On our road trip to Mammoth, we were lucky enough to be surrounded by beautiful scenery – fields, open roads, ranches, and abandoned churches and buildings. We captured these graceful and alluring places, Halfsies Style…which is a photoshoot, obviously!

Take a glimpse into our spontaneous ‘On the Road: Wanderlust’ photoshoot. See how you can encompass summer pieces into fall outfits, with the use of flannels, cut-offs, denim jackets, sun hats, florals, maxis, boots, and fringe! You will also be exposed to our favorite term, “shoulder it”. Enjoy!

Birthday Weekend in Mammoth

Processed with VSCOcam with p5 preset

Life is all about making the most of our time. It is important to take time to explore, relax, laugh, dance, and cultivate creativity. For me, the best time to do this is on the weekends. It is my time to reset, breathe, and shake off the work week. This past weekend was a little more vital than the rest, being that it was my birthday. The only obvious way to celebrate was to take a road trip to one of my favorite places, with some of my favorite babes.

The reason why I love Mammoth is because it is so beautiful, peaceful, and as weird as this sounds, non-judgmental. The people and the atmosphere give off such good vibes, and it feels so rejuvenating to spend time there. The entire weekend was perfect, from the weather to the random adventures and people we came across.

I don’t want to give Mammoth all the credit, because it does help when you have beautiful/perfect humans to enjoy it with. They make those moments and the time you spend in places like these, worthwhile. They complete those moments. Tie them together.

I’ll stop with the sappy talk now and let you enjoy the photos! Cheers!

Married to Nature

I spent today in a local arboretum, laying on a blanket in the sunshine, watching strangers set up for a sure-to-be-fabulous wedding.

I kind of had an epiphany in the process. The birds were chirping, soft wedding music drifted quietly in the wind, and I felt this weird tranquility that quickly translated to an infectious happiness.

Like the rest of you, my busy days lend little time to doing nothing. I live in the hustle and bustle of crazy LA, and my “outside” adventures usually consist of going to the beach or hitting up popular hiking trails.

This idea of nothingness… of sitting around by myself, listening to nature, and trying to fully clear my thoughts… It’s beautiful! I’m obsessed! I literally can’t get enough.

As the day progressed, I feared my wedding prep observing might turn into
“Who is that creepy stranger?” inquiries, so I ventured further into the arboretum, inspired to take pics to share with you all, proving the beauty & overwhelming perfection of nature.

I hope you enjoy! This is totally my new version of therapy… It’s even better than shopping (I can’t believe I just said that).
