Big Sur

January 3rd, 2016
was the first time I ever got to explore highway 1.
I was so amazed with the entire view that I could not believe how beautiful the earth really was
and how lucky I am to be able to call California my home. 
I have lived in Southern California surrounded by crowded cities for my entire life so I never truly understood just how beautiful this place really was until I actually got to see it from this point of view. I stopped a million times during my drive up the coast
and every photo was well worth it. It was such a beautiful day, very cold and cloudy
with a bit of wind (which is never my favorite but what can you do).
Someday I would love to do a photo shoot with someone out here, I think that would be absolutely
amazing. The views are just incredible.
We stopped in Big Sur along the way which was a lot of fun and of course
I went into a couple of the shops that had handmade goods that were created by
some of the locals. They had a bit of everything. Glassware, pottery, jewelry, and art. It was really neat to see how close the community was. I loved the feeling I got from that small, beautiful and creative town. One of these days I must go on a little vacation with my love here
just to unwind together and take in the salty air.

Population 18

So today I dug through the archives only to find these old photos of a small town cafe that my mom and I loved going to whenever we visited Northern California. These pictures aren't the best only because at the time I didn't have the nice camera that I do now, so these were all taken with an Iphone4. Yes, it was that long ago.

Left My Heart In Santa Cruz


Early Last year I went on a little three day trip to Santa Cruz, one of my all time favorite cities ever for multiple reasons, and during my visit I fell madly in love with the scenery.
This city had everything. The beach, cozy weather, beautiful houses, nice big boardwalk, 
The woods, and amazing restaurants! It was truly the best time I had in awhile. The people out there were so kind and friendly,
There was always something to do and no matter where I went alone, I felt right at home.

Lets be friends! (Get to know me)

I'm Vanessa James, creator and author of Her Vintage Heart, a blog dedicated to just a little bit of everything! (Beauty, Fashion, Art, Music, Photography etc.)Born & raised in Southern California but I'm not your typical SoCal babe. I live just outside of Los Angeles, right smack in the middle of the Desert in a small home with my three dogs, Leda, Comet, Ollie and husband. I am twenty years old with a passion and love for everything life has to offer. I spend a lot of my time working hard while still having some time for myself to travel, explore and take photos. I enjoy the little things in life and I am so excited to start my new blogging journey with you. I hope you tag along every week to see what is new on the blog. Thank you so much, your support is everything! Please subscribe to see more of me and my adventures.
