A Slice of Life | The College Town by the Sea

surf-leggings

Over the years, Isla Vista, California has been in the news for some pretty unfortunate stuff, but there is much more to this college town than the wild parties it is known for. As a UC Santa Barbara student, I can vouch for the intellect and kindness of all of the residents of Isla Vista, who can qualify as party animals, bookworms, talented athletes and artists, or all of the above.

A Slice of Life | Viva México! Guest Series by Stephanie Schechter

Pineapple Tank
Hola! I spent the last ten days surfing with my family in Mexico, in a beautiful area called Punta Mita. The town itself is pretty small, with an oceanfront main drag that includes a handful of restaurants and a tiny harbor that is home to about 20 ponga boats. There are several surf spots nearby, including pumping reef breaks and peeling point breaks. Because the surf was so plentiful, and September is off-season, we never ran into any crowds! The fish tacos were AMAZING, and the weather was gorgeous the entire trip, with clear skies and 90 degree turquoise waters. Viva México!

A Slice Of Life | No Budge Bikini: L*SPACE

SWELL 2
Finding a bikini that actually stays on during outdoor activities is a challenge no matter what… but finding one that is also CUTE is even harder. Fortunately, L*SPACE has created what I like to call the perfect no-budge bikini. The three strap back top is the perfect combo of fashion and function, and its stylish design works perfectly as a bralette with an open back tank or dress. The itsy bottom, for those who dare to bare, is ideal for tanning, and stays on in even the roughest of surf! This suit can really do no wrong, especially because its flattering seamless style looks great on every girl. No bulges or bumps… and in any activity, no budge!
