Reuse, recycle and get some rad bar stools out of it. Selvage a fallen tree and you’ll score a couple of free stools that would put your hours of searching on Craigslist to shame. A dead coconut tree was used for these, but you can use whatever is available in your neighborhood. Keep an eye out for tree trimmers or freshly cut down trees – before they make it to the wood chipper. Toss in a few friends to help carry, some sand paper and varnish, and presto change-o, bar stools. Read on for the how-to… (more…)

Novella Royale
On our long journey home from Big Sur we turned off the marked roads and headed down some less traveled paths. We followed these winding trails until we stumbled upon one of the prettiest beaches I have seen. We spent a few hours exploring the hidden beach and forgotten coastline in San Luis Obispo. I could’ve spent hours gazing at the ocean from one of the many perfect viewpoints we discovered. There is such a feeling of wonder that can only come about from experiencing the little pieces of paradise found on unplanned adventures. I had my beautiful new bells on that were perfect for climbing, finding my footing, and simply standing still to take it all in. While I gazed out at the ocean, sharp cliffs, and climbing foliage I kept the sun out of my eyes with my hat that I swear never comes off my head. Why should it? As it got a little breezier on the cliffs, I wrapped myself in my new printed jacket. Staying chic and comfortable are two things I always plan on no matter what new, spontaneous adventure may come around the corner.
