Summertime in the LBC

That's a Warren G. Song but I found it fittingly! I want to post all my goodies from Ireland but am on a mini holiday. I say mini because I've not whisked away to Croatia or Hawaii- I'm just escaping the 108 degree weather were expecting in Riverside and staying at my boyfriends Casa in the cooler (80-90's) Long Beach. The history of long Beach is an interesting one. It's port is one of the largest shipping ports in the world. Long beach is located near the pacific coast, therefore it always slighty cooler and fresher to be able to walk around in the day time. Have noticed that since there isn't much humidity here the Sun is stronger. I apply SPF 60+ religiously but am still very dark. I say this because my boyfriend feels the need to say it as often as he can . Most girls like to tan and layout, but for us "brown girls", staying the same and not getting darker is what we (or at least me) want. Heading to Trader Joe's, maybe take a look at their SPF. Any suggestion of good (reasonably priced) SPF?

Here's a quick peek into the lovely city of the LBC. Swap post to come soon- promise! xx

  1. Ooh I'm jealous--I don't think I've been the beach ONCE since summer started :/ I should really drive up to Long Beach for the day...it's only about an hour away from me--maybe a little less

    1. You def should go soon! I was pretty bummed as the economic state I'm in didn't allow for a "real" vacation and then I remembered- I live in Southern california;)
      Lbc is a nice change than newport or Huntington. I'd love to go to SD soon- the weather is always fantastic!
