Adventures to the Jim Morrison Cave

"Look up how to get to The Jim Morrison Cave," he asked me to do before we got on our way to discover this obscure place. I googled it, and followed the pinpoint to where it corrected as "The Corral Canyon Cave."
When we arrived to that destination, he turns to me and says "This is not it. It's not something you google. You have to really search for it."
I took a few moments and finally found a blog where the writer gave a detailed direction of how to get there from the point where you park your car to hiking towards the concealed entrance.

It was definitely more of an intense adventure than I was ready for. Nevertheless, the difficulty made it so much fun. After exploring and getting help from some hikers, we cam upon this extremely narrow cave opening that had the caution "Beware" spray painted all over the rocks…. It was intimidating.

We climbed through the cavity together and popped our heads into a world of a bubble gum pink trippiness. I've never seen anything like it, nor was I expecting anything like it:
Every inch of the cave was covered in crazy hand-painted illustrations. It is also known as "the Pink Vagina" because of the way its exit looks hahahaha!!!!!!

I was surpsied to have never seen any photos of this cave online or anywhere before. I thought it was so weird why such an extravagant place was not blown up by any of us artsy people here in Cali. 
I guess not everyone is down to put in the handwork of finding it…only the pirates deserve such a treat to experience the Jim Morrison Cave.

And a hippie pirate I was~

Le Boho Chat

When I go on my hikes, I am usually very inspired because I use that time to thoroughly connect with myself. My mind spurs many interesting ideas and thoughts as I absorb the surroundings with a clearer mind.
Recently, I was inspired to throw together a boho-chic styled coordi since I had this super cute white flare-sleeved top from LF Stores. 
With the rocky and sandy terrain in mind, I threw on the daisy-woven cat-ears to create an image of a cute little mountain lion.
The white furry fanny-pack added the last touch to bring the kitty to life.

In Japan, one of my favorite stores to visit is Spinns. They do a great job in providing the latest Japanese fashion trends in terms of pop street-wear.
What caught my eye the most was this Spanish-inspired textile of clothing. The fact that it was in baby pink made it jump to my part of the world. I also love that the shorts are laced up on the sides to snug your waist. Its just the perfect set of clothing to wear on a hot summer day, for festival-wear, to the beach, or literally anywhere casual! haha
