Shoes with soul.

imageimageimageimage

Although I swear I was meant to be barefoot for the majority of my life, I can’t help but love me some shoes. Especially ones that make my feet look cool, while also helping various causes, or empower people and communities across the globe.

So, if anyone is looking for some shoes. (Oh wait, isn’t that something that’s in our genetic code)…here are a few lines that are stylin’ but also doing so much good, even your feet will get a warm fuzzy.

Ok, there are a ton of ALS Ice Bucket Challenege videos circulating lately. But this, by far, has to be the most freaking fantastic, and creative one yet.

A little bird also told me the video’s creator also donated to the cause. Major bonus points there.

Watch, and be mesmerized…then watch again.

Saluting your radness, Mike Bullock. Awesome video. If I get nominated can you come to LA and film me? Thanks.

Salt Gypsy X Goldfish Kiss

Danny of Salt Gypsy is a gem of a human being. She is genuine, creative, full of integrity, and totally rips. So, when the opportunity to collaborate with her on one of her (always sold out because they totally rock) travel wraps arose, I did a jumping fist pump followed by an enthusiastic heck yeah. 

We also happened to finalize the design while in the middle of the Indian Ocean, on our surf trip in The Maldives.

Best board meeting ever.

So, we are thrilled to introduce the Salt Gypsy X Goldfish Kiss travel wrap.

So many amazing quotes and lines delivered by Robin Williams that made an impact. I had to write a few of them down: 

“You’ll have bad times, but it’ll always wake you up to the good stuff you weren’t paying attention to.” 

"We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering - these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love - these are what we stay alive for.” 

Off to watch Dead Poets Society and Good Will hunting…with a box of Kleenex.

Thanks for all the laughs and inspiration Robin. High-res

Let’s make some cashew milk.


I get rather excited when I find out how to make something new, that is in the healthy and non processed genre. Example: in college, my friend Gina, taught me how to make gravy (aka marinara sauce for us non Italian folk), and I have not purchased any pre-made stuff since. The same goes for salad dressing, marinades, peanut sauce, and now…nut milk. Well, cashew milk to be exact.

Stay put cuties.

A decade ago you’d be lucky to scrounge up five stay put, comfy bikini tops that were also cute and fashionable. I take that back, you’d be lucky to find one. Well, I checked my database (aka my short term memory of tops I’ve tried or heard great things about) and compiled a list of different styles, across all price ranges, that all have a few things in common: they stay put, are functional, and are pretty stinkin’ cute.

DANKE! 

A month or so ago, I was contacted by InStyle Germany, and after sending them a few pics, I thought it was maybe going to be a little blurb or inset. Well, it turned out to be a four page feature about the blog and beach beauty tips. ‘Twas a bit surreal seeing my pics and sandy mug in between professional editorial shoots.

I might have screamed a little bit and scared my husband to death when I flipped through the magazine. So, I had to share.

Cheers to print :)
