Don’t get me started with Laguna Beach. This place is blessed by the gods--beautiful beaches with glorious sunsets, amazing flowers and vegetation and a peaceful vibe all around.
My body needed a break from the NY winter, the onslaught of my to-do list and the work of expanding my brand and launching my online shop.
A friend mentioned she moved from NYC to Laguna and I took it as a lead to make it my next travel destination. Following my intuition paid off. The minute I arrived, I loved the smell, the energy and my body loved it too. I immediately connected with the ocean and felt a rush of energy from the cold water. I walked long hours on the beach and discovered intimate alcoves for myself.
While searching for a travel agent, I found the amazing Anastasia boutique that carries my favourite shoe brand--United Nude. I now own a pair of classy, funky, sassy shoes for spring that fit me perfectly.
Next I had a memorable mocha café and lemon tart at the Zinc Café. The service was lovely. The people here are nice, easygoing, present and yet not pushy. It's the nice weather! There's a different kind of freedom here, one tempered by gratitude and appreciation, different from NYC where I isolate myself to feel my freedom.
Resting here does wonders for my mind. It mellows me out and I surprise myself by being in the moment with no rush or agenda… Allowing this space is a luxury I don’t want to forget. In that space of adventure, magic can unfold! I walked a lot which allowed me to take in this place more organically than if I had rented a car.
So if you want to rest in a lovely, coastal spot with sunshine pretty much all year around, Laguna Beach might be your next destination!
