This week C and I are road tripping the new Tesla up the central coast to test out range and ease of finding charging stations (so far, so good). We’ve been hanging out in Santa Barbara and my all time favorite place, Big Sur.
So with that in mind, here are the things that are rocking my world this week:
1. Coppola Keratin dry shampoo spray.
I had another keratin treatment just before I left, which meant no washing my hair or putting it up for four days. Thank god for this dry shampoo, mostly for C’s sake.
BTW, a post about Keratin treatments will be coming soon. If you have questions about it, let me know in the comments.
2. Hotels/ cabins/restaurants that offer free Wifi. Or Weefee as they pronounce it everywhere else in the world. Look. Wifi should come with your lodging. Don’t charge guests for wifi. Don’t tell me that the beautiful view is their answer to wifi. This is 2013, and a lot of people, like myself and my significant other, need to remain connected for work purposes.
|Not only did the Canary hotel have a wonderful bed, they had free effing wifi!
3. Deep. Fried. Pickles.
Eff yeah. I understand that these are nothing new to southerners, but to a California girl like myself, these were a revelation.
I found these beauties at the Maiden Publick House in Big Sur. There were more to the order, but I was obviously distracted before taking a picture.
4. Lovely small bookstores with cats that roam the premises.
This is Theo. He’s a bit indifferent to guests who stop in and he naps on the deck nestled among the Redwood trees. He has a good life. The Henry Miller Library is a good place with coffee and wifi and good books.
5. Hikes that take you to majestic views.
I will be posting more about Big Sur in the future, but as I sit in a pub with fried pickles and free wifi, I thought I’d share this with you all:
Heaven. On. Earth. And this is just across the highway from the towering redwood trees.
As usual, since it’s Friday and I like to join Whitney to Backthatazzup, I leave you with this, in honor of our road trip:
