Wear the Pants

Now that we are all back in the swing of things and fall has finally hit us, it’s time to put some pants on and get back to work. When you are feeling down about summer being gone, channel your feelings toward what cool clothes you can wear now. Fall is a new season to explore and enjoy. Imagine the places you will go this fall and the new friends you’ll make… and yes a new pair of shoes count as a friend! You’ve still got every weekend to wear a new outfit and see a new place. We get to challenge ourselves again with finding our fall style. I’m kicking off fall with some animal print pants and boots. Since the warm weather will linger a little longer on this side of the coast, a simple tank is a perfect compliment to these printed pants. As the season progresses it will be a blast adding new layers of style and attitude to these already bold pants. Fall comes with new adventures, responsibilities, and lots and lots of cool clothes so get on it!

A Slice of Life: Meditation Gardens

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.
