In addition to this blog, I also write a denim blog. Naturally, this means our 16-year-old son intermittently asks when I’m going to collaborate with True Religion jeans. I told him probably never because everyone knows True Religion is for rappers. It’s a great look for 2 Chains, but their marketing team probably isn’t looking for a 40+ hippie mom of two.
I’ve been filling up our house with plants, and in turn purchasing many baskets in which to place them. I love the jungalow look my living room is getting with so much greenery around, and the bonus is I’ve managed to keep most of the plants alive for a year or so. But recently I realized one thing […]
As I’ve gotten older, one of the best revelations I’ve had about fashion and personal style is that getting dressed doesn’t have to be entwined with your perception of your body, which is especially freeing if those thoughts sometimes take you to an unhappy place. On the contrary, what you wear can elevate you from […]
It’s the tail end of Bay Area Dance Week, but it’s not too late to get in on one of the many free dance classes offered throughout the weekend. Salsa, ballroom, afro-cuban modern, hula, bandaloop, Bollywood and many more classes in pretty much every part of the Bay Area are still open the rest of this […]
I received the email at 12:32am during a bout of insomnia on May 8. I was in the regular practice of falling asleep with our 4-year-old around 8pm, then finding myself wide awake around midnight but too brain-tired to do anything productive. So I did that thing you’re not supposed to when you can’t sleep and checked my […]
When the organizers of Femme Fair asked me to join up with them for a day of selling clothes from out closets and supporting Planned Parenthood, I was all in. I had been talking about setting up an online shop for forever. I even went so far as to take a bunch of photos. But […]
I’m so excited that Shopbop extended its end-of-season sale because that means I can finally make some time to share some of my favorite pieces with you! There’s lots of long flowiness, off-the-shoulder action, stripes, and brights for you to choose from. And there’s A LOT to choose from in this sale so, you’re welcome! […]
This weekend is the second Sunday of the month, and that means it’s time for Solidarity Sundays! Each month focuses on a particular topic we’re concerned about in the context of the 45th American presidency. This month it’s the environment, and I’m excited to have TWO speakers lined up: 1. An EPA employee, will tell some brief […]
I’ve been thinking a lot about marble hallways lately—the weighty feeling you get when you walk down them and the decisions being made behind the closed doors that line them.
Moving to Pacifica has tons of positives: the beach, the view, the community, the (somewhat) lower-than-the-city cost of living. But it also meant giving up things like amazing restaurants and delivery options. So I get very excited when companies like Good Eggs come to town. The online grocery market delivers fresh produce, meat and fish, […]
