Not very many things motivate me enough to get out of bed early on a Sunday morning, in fact I think the flea market is the only event I’m all for waking up early on the weekend. This past weekend I wandered around the Long Beach antique market in search for unique pieces to add to my home and wardrobe. I fall in love each time with everything from old worn top hats to mid century furniture. The market is a great way to spend a summer day – but be careful because it is also a very easy and fun way to spend lots of money! The sun always seems to beat down on the crowds as they meander through the aisles, so I wore a hat and kimono to keep the sun off. A simple pair of denim shorts, tank, and sandals made me stay both comfortable and stylish as I walked around. With an outfit as trendy and eclectic as the setting, and a variety of vintage goods, quirky treasures, it was impossible to not have a good time. So next Sunday wake up early and I promise you that the flea market will not disappoint!

Retro is always a hit, and high waist shorts are definitely the throwback trend of the moment! I love nothing more than an old school style cut off. The main reason? These babies are FLATTERING. I mean, shorts that make your waist look tiny and your legs look long? Count me in!

#SeaMade: A Dive Into ‘Beyond the Surface’

bts_2

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.
