Spring Mountain Ranch

Last week my boyfriend and I went to one of my favorite places in Las Vegas and walked around to take some cool photos. It was fun to share my favorite place with him, even though it was hot and would have been much nicer in the fall or winter. But I’m glad he wanted to go with me.

Here’s a compilation of some fun shots we took together that day. Hope you enjoy!

Exploring The Calico Ghost Town

It’s been a very long time since I wrote about photography or posted any of my adventure photos on here. So let’s go back in time a little, to April of this year, and check out my photo collection I took from my family day trip to the Calico Ghost Town(:

I believe this is also the first collection of photos I took with my new Canon T6s and I love how they came out. Hope you enjoy(:

Extreme Thing 2016

 

Yesterday, I randomly decided to go to the Extreme Thing Music Festival in Las Vegas at the last second. I originally wanted to go because I wanted to see my new favorite band State Champs play along with Mayday Parade, but my boyfriend couldn’t come to Vegas to go with me and I really didn’t want to go alone. But then I saw the line up for this summers Warped Tour and both State Champs and Mayday Parade where gonna be at warped, with all of my other favorite bands so I basically wasn’t missing out if I didn’t go see them at Extreme Thing. So then I decided I wasn’t going to go to Extreme Thing and I was just gonna catch all my favorite bands at Warped.

But then yesterday morning when I woke up at 11:40 I had a text from my friend asking if I was going. She told me she was almost there and she was going alone so I told her if she’s going I’ll totally go with her. She didn’t really want to be alone either so I decided to go to Extreme Thing lol

And after I asked what time State Champs was playing I got ready in 15 minutes and ran out of the house. It was noon when I left and it takes about 25 minutes to get to the venue from my house, plus time for parking and having to walk in and buy my ticket, so I was expecting to get in around 12:40 so I could see State Champs play at 2.

Well when I got there at about 12:30, I met up with my friend and we had no idea it was going to be as crazy as it was. The line was sooooo long, like there were so many people still waiting to get in. Which was crazy to me because it opened at 11am and almost 2 hours later there’s still a massive line of people waiting. The previous years I would show up around noon and I would buy my ticket and just walk in.

We ended up standing in line for about an hour, and after some complications we finally got in, literally 10 minutes before State Champs was playing 😭 and I was like WE HAVE TO FIND THE STAGE THEY’RE ON!! But we had the hardest time finding the stage because they had changed the stage names that were online so nothing was what it was originally named, and even after asking event staff and security they didn’t even know the stage names, and we had like 5 minutes and I randomly found a guy walking with a program guide so I asked him if I could see it and we found where State Champs was playing and ran over to the crowd and pushed our way in and into the front/middle.

I had been wanting to see them live for a while now so I was so pumped! And I guess so was everyone else because the crowd was crazy and everybody was into it, everybody was hyped and had a great time. State Champs were soooo goood. They had great energy, and they sounded amazing live. I literally had the time of my life in that crowd lol


Then after, the vocalist said he was going to be by one of the tents meeting everyone so we went there after to meet him and he was so nice. And sweaty lol but everyone was. He met everyone and we all got to talk to him for a bit, so that was nice(:

Basically after that my life was complete and I didn’t really care about anything else all day.

My friend and I spent the rest of the day going from stage to stage to see the bands we wanted to see. We waited at the barricade for almost an hour to be front and center for Bayside, who I only knew like one song to, but they are my friends favorite band, and I could definitely see why! I had heard their music a little before, but even though I didn’t know their lyrics, they were incredible! I had such a great time watching them up close, and you could see all the members smiling and loving what they do. Their performance was so good I could literally just watch them all day.

After their set, we ran all the way back to the stage where Mayday Parade was playing, so we could be in the crowd for them and when we got there we were like FUCK. Cause their crowd was huge! But again, we pushed our way into the crowd and got where we wanted to be.
And then when they came on it got so crazy. Literally, pits opening up and people getting thrown in and tossed around, so many people crowd surfing and falling on top of each other. I am not kidding, you couldn’t really watch and enjoy the show too much because you were too busy either avoiding or carrying a crowd surfer every 10 seconds and trying not to get squished and fallen on. I kid you not. I still had a lot of fun and I love being in crazy crowds like that. I can’t tell you how many times someone fell on me during that show or how many times we got kicked in the face by crowd surfers lol like I have battle wounds and bruises on my body from that crowd. It was crazy awesome!

Everybody was crowd surfing for Mayday Parade and things got intense. My friend got flattened when a fat girl tried to crowd surf and fell on top of her and knocked her ass out. Seriously, she blacked out lol A nice random guy helped pick her up so security could take her out, then I asked him to lift me up too so I could crowd surf to the barricade and get out to make sure she was alright. We ended up getting to sit side stage for Mayday Parade and get catered to with EMT’s and cold water lol so it really wasn’t too bad. My friend got some air and water and they cleaned her up since she was bleeding, but overall she was fine. And getting to sit side stage was kind of a bonus.

The crowd was absolutely crazy! Definitely not the craziest crowd I’ve ever been in, but still Mayday Parade’s crowd yesterday made it pretty high on my list.
Overall, it was a really great day. I had a lot of fun, and I’m glad I decided to go. To be honest, it was really refreshing going to Extreme Thing again. It sort of brought me back to my roots and the kind of music I’ve always loved to see live and go crazy to. I’ve been going to shows in LA but the crowds there are so boring to be honest. Like they don’t do anything other then just stand around and watch. I’m used to shows in Vegas where everybody is hyped and the energy is so high, everybody is singing and jumping around and crowd surfing. Being a part of the craziness is what’s fun for me. If I’m not in the middle of the crowd dancing and jumping around or at the barricades at the very front then I’d rather not be there. If i’m just gonna stand on the side and watch then what’s the point? Like that’s not fun for me lol

But I’m glad I did go and hung out with my friend and enjoyed the day together.

Thanks for stopping by! And have a great day everyone(:


Random Photo… #10

It’s been almost 2 years since I’ve done a random photo post. The last one I did was on February 24, 2014 ._. 

So that’s what I’m doing today! 😄

Please enjoy this photo I took of my pet hedgehog at El Matador beach in California(: 

  
It was his first trip to the beach and he looks a little grumpy but he ended up walking around and playing in the sand a bit.

I also made my hedgehog his own instagram page where I post his adventures and where he’s been and all his travels. Feel free to follow him by clicking here!(:

Vacation Recap

Hey guys! So I recently went on vacation by myself to California, and it was so much fun! Today I thought I’d go through some of the things I did while I was there and share some photos with everyone.

I ended up staying in California for 11 days, and the first thing I did when I got there was head to the beach! I stopped by Santa Monica and went to the pier, got some food, walked the beach, and skated the boardwalk from Santa Monica Pier all the way through Venice.

I did head to Santa Barbara a few days after that to go see my friend Bree, and we just hung out for a few hours and went to go eat downtown at State St.

I spent literally all of my vacation in Hollywood with my friend Brian, which I didn’t mind at all because 1. I love Hollywood and 2. Brian’s awesome lol

While I was in Hollywood, we did a little bit of everything. We went shopping on Melrose, saw and went to some of my favorite hip hop and street wear brand stores, I went to Beverly Center for the first time, ATTEMPTED to hike Runyon Canyon and failed miserably lol, I went to Griffith Observatory, and of course stopped by my favorite record store, Amoeba! We did also go to Anaheim and went to Knott’s Berry Farm, which neither of us have ever been to, so that was fun to go check it out and ride all the rides. And I also randomly decided to get a couple of new tattoos.

I did try a lot of different food places that I’ve never been to before and that’s always fun lol. Food is basically my best friend.

I also posted a couple of videos on my YouTube channel of my trip to California, which you can watch below(:

I’m actually going back to LA at the end of this month, which I’m excited for of course. I was originally just going to go around Halloween for like 5 days to go to Universal Studios for Halloween Horror Nights, but I’m actually going a week sooner since I will be going to the Knotfest Music Festival. I’ve never been to either of these things so I’m excited to be going to them for the first time(:

I hope everyone has a great day! Thanks for stopping by(:


First Creek Canyon

Hello everyone! Today I will be sharing photos from yesterday during my little hike at First Creek Canyon at Red Rock here in Las Vegas.

First Creek Canyon is a simple 3 mile walk across the valley, which takes you to a nice waterfall with willows and shaded trees. At this time of year, the waterfall isn’t as big and flowing and it normally is when I hike there, but it was still nice(:

Please enjoy some random photos from that hike(:

Thanks for stopping by!(:


California Road Trip!

A month ago, my cousin and I took a little road trip together to California to go see one of my favorite rappers, Hoodie Allen, in Santa Ana since he wasn’t coming to Vegas on his tour. The show date we went to was Sunday November 16th, and we ended up staying 3 days in California, having adventures and literally going everywhere and driving around all of LA.

So I will be going over the whole trip and sharing some photos from those days(:

— — —

Our trip began really early on that Sunday morning around 5am I believe and we headed out on the road, making sure we had all the snacks and sandwiches and everything we needed. It was about a 6 hour drive from Vegas to Santa Ana, but honestly I love driving so the drive there wasn’t even bad. I enjoyed it. And being with my cousin, we always have a great time together so it’s not like the drive was boring or anything.

The only real stop we made was to go to Peggy Sue’s 50’s Diner to go check it out together and have breakfast. It’s this super cute little 50’s diner and it’s so adorable. Like they have pies and malt shakes that are so yummy and they have lots of memorabilia on the walls and it’s just a super cute place(:

— — —

The plan was to leave early in the morning, arrive in Santa Ana, check into our hotel and then head to the show later on. When we got to Santa Ana, we first went to go check out the venue since our room wasn’t ready yet and we were only staying a few streets over from the venue. It was like 1pm and there were people in line already x) After we checked out the venue and where it was, we decided to go to the beach for a little bit to walk around and get some snacks before heading to our room. We drove down to Newport beach since it was literally right there. And it was windy, but still really nice(:

— — —

When we got to our hotel and checked in, we went up to our room and settled in and omg I was so surprised how freaking nice it was! Definitely one of the best places I’ve ever stayed in. We were at the Courtyard at Marriott and the room was amazing(:

— — —

The show itself was absolutely phenomenal. Easily one of the greatest experiences of my life. We got in and went to go check out the merch since we both wanted like at least a shirt. And I had such an awkward meeting with one of the merch guys. He recognized me from instagram and I was like oh shit this is weird, but hey can I get a shirt? Lol he was cool though.

I ended up getting a tour shirt and a snapback. And at the end of the merch table, Hoodie Allen was there meeting everybody and signing their merch. I asked him to sign my hat and iphone x) And he was such a cool dude. He was real and took the time to talk to you, which was really cool of him.

The show was great! My cousin and I had such a great time together at the show and we danced and sang our lungs out. Lol we honestly didn’t meet any cool people there unfortunately. Pretty much everybody there or at least everyone we came into contact with was kind of a snob ._. So there were no chill people there, just a bunch of retarded girls.

And shout out to that one dumb girl who was crying about getting a little bit of cake in her hair. I hope you melted(:

I really didn’t take any photos, I mostly did some short videos but I was living in the moment for the most part so I wasn’t really concentrating on taking good photos or videos x)

— — —

The next day we went on a big LA adventure and went all over the place. We started off with breakfast at Panera down the street from our hotel and from there we went to Hollywood and we walked the Hollywood walk of fame and I took my cousin to my favorite record store, Amoeba Records, where I ended up getting a couple posters, of course x)

We went to The Grove and checked out some things there and saw their big sky high Christmas tree, which was really cool and full of holidayness.

And as we were driving down some random street in west LA, we found this awesome junk yard place with all these really cool things. There was actually something there that I really wanted to get but it was $100 and too long to fit in my car 😦 And if you have me on snapchat, you may have seen it on my story, but for the sake of maybe going back to get it, I’m not going to say what it was xD I found it like hidden behind some other things, so hopefully if I go back for it, it will still be there and I can actually get it. Lol

I also took my cousin to Chick fil A for the first time and she loved it! Like I don’t even like chicken that much but their chicken is just so good how can you not love it?!

Then around 10pm that day, we decided to go to the Santa Monica Pier for a bit and hang out. And whenever I’m there I have to stop and take a photo being on Ocean Ave because of Yellowcard ❤ We sat on one of the benches and took ugly photos together then moved to a different side of the pier and watched the tide roll in. It was such a great night (:

— — —

We originally only had our hotel for one night and we didn’t want to pay another night for a room but we wanted to stay another day in California, so we decided to be badass and we slept in the car for a night x) Since we stayed at the Marriott, they gave us a valet parking pass to put on my car so they know we’re staying there so we actually just ended up sleeping in the car in the parking lot of the hotel we stayed in x)

The next morning, we went back to LA and we went to go visit the American Horror Story murder house from the first season(: The first season is the best one in my opinion so it was really cool to be able to go and visit it in person and see it.

The last thing we did before heading on home was driving up the mountain to go see the Hollywood sign together. I would have loved to actually hike up to it but no time for that shit. We went to Griffith Observatory at the top and it was really cool. It had the most incredible view of LA and we were there for a good hour or two before we decided it was time to head out and go back home.

— — —

The drive back to Vegas, not gonna lie, took a toll on my back and ass. Like I was aching and I felt like my leg and part of my ass was going to fall off.

It felt good to come home after being gone for a few days with my cousin. I had the greatest time with her as always on that road trip. Everything was such a great experience and I’m thankful I got to do it all with my cousin and best friend. She’s seriously my ride or die girl. I can always count on her for anything and she’s always down to do crazy fun things with me. I’m glad that I got to run around and explore some of California with her(: I look forward to having more road trips and adventures in the future(:

Thanks for stopping by you guys!

Hope everyone has a great day!(:
