Endless Prints Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

As I’ve gotten to peek into all the summer collections headed our way, it’s obvious that we all are embracing prints a little more this season. From animal prints that remind you of African safaris, to vintage Hawaiian prints and colors that make you wish you had a mango and coconut in hand, there’s a print for everyone. And if fun prints don’t make you happy, then pom pom shorts will… but the combo of these two screams salty hair, sand everywhere, and no worries or a care. I wore mine with a crop top and a simple necklace. They are a perfect summer staple and a good pair of shorts to own and mix in with all the denim cutoffs I will be wearing this summer. Pom pom shorts and happy prints make me smile.

Take a moment to think about India. What are some of your initial thoughts? Surfing pristine peelers and cultivating social change may not be the fist thoughts to come to mind but for Crystal Thornburg-Homcy and her filmmaker husband, Dave, that’s exactly what comes to mind.

In the documentary ‘Beyond The Surface’ Ishita Malaviya, the first female surfer in India, joins five unique and talented women: Crystal Thornburg-Homcy, Liz Clark, Lauren Hill, Emi Koch, and Kate Baldwin. They travel through Southern India exploring the ways surfing, yoga, and ecological creativity can bring hope to the people of India, and the rest of the world.

When I saw the film at the San Diego Surf Film Festival, I was extremely inspired and not one bit surprised the film won the award for best documentary of the entire fest. This is a story you don’t want to miss.

DIY: How To Fix A Broken Sandal

how to fix a broken flip flop
If you’re a fan of the rubber flip flop, you know that blow-outs are inevitable at some point of said flip flop’s lifespan. And as experience tells us, major breaks rarely happen when you’re flopping around the house or on a nice soft-sand beach. Nope. They happen when it’s 100 degrees out and you have to traverse boulders before walking home on scorching asphalt…up hill, both ways. Which leaves us to think that anyone posting a quick fix for a broken flip flop with materials found at your house (but rarely in your purse/beach bag), may not be the rubber sandal-wearing DIYer they claim to be.
Read on for a few choices for the emergency DIY – for when you don’t have access to a shed full of materials… (more…)
