The funny thing about even the most amazing trip is that upon returning we reflect, but quickly move on. So then we fall into this routine where every so often we crave another adventure far far away from everything we've become bored of, yet we allow ourselves to return to that bored state rather than maintaining that adventurous spirit at home.
No matter where you are...a small city or a big town, there are museums and cafes and people that are just as foreign. Take time to get to know them. Take time to go to places you've never been that are easily accessible to you. Take the time, no matter where you are in the world, to get to know yourself.
I’ve been doing some local exploration recently and have discovered some super spots in Oceanside. If you live in Southern CA, or are planning a trip; make sure to give these stellar cafes and groovy boutiques some love!!
1836 S Coast Hwy, Oceanside, CA 92054
As a coffee shop enthusiast, I am always on the lookout for new cafes to try, and Revolution Roasters is definitely a new favorite!! Quieter than most shops along the 101, this café is the perfect place to get work done or enjoy brunch with a friend.

Super cute boutique in Oceanside!! If you’re looking to shop or are in need of a gift for someone give C + A a look.

This is a collective art space featuring different local craftsman each day of the week. They offer a wide array of products ranging from natural soaps to one of a kind paintings.
My favorite part of the store are the DIY sections where you can hand stamp leather goods or create custom jewelry.

This vintage clothing store and coffee shop combo is my idea of perfection. Offering a variety of brands at reasonable prices you can easily spend an hour sifting through thrifted threads.

This boutique is family run and owned by Angela Churchill. She and her daughters curate the best and grooviest pieces!! Offering familiar items from brands like Free People as well as plenty of pieces from smaller labels like Shop Mamie; you’ll be sure to discover some new fave designers.
