A Slice of Life: Meditation Gardens

swamis1
I’ve grown up surfing at the famous Swamis, known for its reeling rights, beautiful cliffs, and of course – the Self Realization Fellowship (hence the name, Swamis). The SRF welcomes people of any religion, faith, or belief system to walk through the Encinitas temple’s beautiful meditation garden. The garden is intended to be a place where guests can cleanse their minds of stress and worry, while taking the time to sit and enjoy some peaceful self-reflection. Plus, there’s a pretty great view of Swamis and Boneyards – just in case you want to check the surf while meditating.

Long Live Summer

As summer begins to come to an end, I try to get in as much time at the beach as possible. Long summer days should always end with a skateboard down the boardwalk as the sun sets to pink and orange hues. For these last few summer moments it’s fun to pick out an outfit that will work all day. It has to be perfect for rolling around in the sand but also ready for skating until the stars come out. A bikini, sunnies, shorts, and some high socks make you feel like the ultimate tomboy, ready for some final summer adventures. Summer ending doesn’t mean the heat is leaving us too, so investing in a good pair of shorts and cute bikini will only do you good. Shorts are perfect for transitioning into fall and there is always a tropical beach vacation beckoning you and your best bikinis no matter where you may be. So say goodbye to summer in style, but don’t say goodbye to summer style!

Castle On The Beach

My love for teepees started when I was a young girl. As far back as I can remember, if the surf was good and the sun was out, my dad would take my sister and I out of school a little early and drive us down to the beach. He would run into the water for a surf and leave the two of us to explore the untouched coastline. This particular beach break washed ashore various types of driftwood and pieces of bamboo. We would then spend the afternoon collecting, planning, and engineering the perfect teepee. Once built, it would turn into our own castle on the beach where we could sit and watch the crashing waves. I guess I never gave up this love for my little fort and so recently I created my very own teepee that I bring with me to the beach – it is quite humorous watching how people respond to me building a teepee on the beach. This past week, I wore this fun maxi dress on my teepee adventures and blinged it out with these amazing bracelets and necklace. This getup is perfect for any upcoming summer weddings, parties, or if you are just in need of a moment of peace, and decide to go sit in a teepee like me.
