Weekend Recap: Ocean Beach and Straight Outta Compton

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? San Francisco has been really warm lately, which is weird and nice all at the same time.  Last weekend it was in the high eighty’s in the city and by noon my apartment is like a sauna! We have windows all along one side of the apartment and the sun shines on from early morning until late night. I decided to head straight for the beach!

Ocean Beach Adventure

Beach Outfit: Navy Lacoste Polo Shirt with Denim Shorts, Ray Bans, Sandals and a Plaid Shirt tied around the waist for cooler beach nights- Repolished.comOutfit Details: Top Lacoste, Shorts Ralph Lauren (Similar), Shoes Franco Sarto (Similar), Plaid Shirt Stitch Fix, Sunglasses Ray Ban.

It’s quite the trek out there with the 30-40 min train, but with some tunes on my Spotify and knowing what’s at the end, it was worth it. At Ocean Beach you can take the muni all the way out and it stops right across the street from the beach. Just hop off and you can feel the fresh ocean breeze. I love being by the water. The ocean smell, warm sand, the smell of sunscreen, happy people all around and to top it off, hopefully a cooler full of delicious food and drinks! Summer-Ocean-Beach-San-Francisco4 Beach-Cooler-Lunch-BagBest-Planner-Bando-I-AM-Very-BusyI brought my new planner hoping to get some work done, but the day ended up being mostly snacks, chatting with friends and having a great time. Here is the shocker though. I also went swimming in the ocean! Yea, I never thought I would ever say that. Just to let you know how big of a deal that actually is, the water at Ocean Beach, remember its’ the pacific ocean, is freezing and I mean really freezing. A couple of my friends wanted to go in the water, but I was not planning on it. With 80’s in the air though, I wouldn’t mind a little ankle cool down so I went along. Before you know it, I was waist deep and figured I might as well just go for it! So there you have it, I went swimming at Ocean Beach!

Straight Outta Compton

I haven’t been to the movies in forever, but this weekend we went to see Straigh Outta Compton. Have you seen it? I know it’s got mixed reviews, but I loved it! It’s based on a true story and if you’re older than 25, you might even remember it. I was not prepared for all the funny scenes, but be prepared to laugh and cry! straight-outta-compton-movie-poster-8I was blown away at how Ice Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr. looks like him! They’re like twins. I don’t think the trailer does it justice so I would just go ahead and see it.

And then there is movie snacks. Back in Norway, we have something called smagodt which basically is like a “sampler” kiosk and you can have one of everything. There is so much good candy!Zy-450x300

I miss it every time, but for now I’ll make do with Popcorn and Milk Duds.

What’s your favorite movie snacks?

Until Next Time, Hadet På Badet!
