Find Me At The Flea Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

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!

A Slice Of Life | Panamá Guest Series by Stephanie Schechter

Post Two645
During my spring break from UC Santa Barbara, my family and I traveled to Playa Venao, Panamá! My family, including my parents and my older brother (who attends UCLA), loves to travel to places that are generally off the beaten path. We always aim to find uncrowded surf destinations with interesting culture, and Panamá definitely fit this description! The capital city, La Cuidad de Panamá is only a six-hour direct flight from LAX – which was really convenient! However, after flying to Panamá, it was over seven hours of complicated driving – and a few wrong turns – to get to Pedasí, the town nearest to Playa Venao. While there are several other excellent surfing locations in Panamá on both the Pacific and the Atlantic coasts, we chose to go to Playa Venao because there are no large resorts nearby, and the surf is known to be fun, uncrowded, and consistent. Upon arrival to La Ciudad de Panamá, we realized that Panamá is slightly more modernized than other countries we have seen in Central America, such as Nicaragua and Costa Rica. However, once out of the city, the Panamanian countryside was very similar to that of its neighboring countries. The house we stayed in, named La Casa Mango, was also reminiscent of other Central American surf lodging. La Casa Mango was almost entirely open air, nestled into a jungle on the hill overlooking Playa Venao. There were plenty of strange insects to be seen, along with tropical birds, geckos, iguanas, frogs, and three varieties of monkeys!

Take A Walk. Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

One of the greatest ways to have an adventure is to simply walk. It’s hard to enjoy the world around you when it’s passing by at 60 miles per hour. Sometimes in life we need to just get out and take a walk. Whether that walk is in a city, down a country road, or on the sand, few things are more enjoyable than truly stopping to “smell the roses”. Whether those “roses” are the smells from corner pastry shops, the rustling of flowers, or the splashing of tide pools, taking the time to go enjoy your surroundings is so refreshing. Getting to enjoy life as it surrounds you, not as you look on from behind a glass window. This past weekend I took advantage of my summer schedule to enjoy a hike in the Bolsa Chica Wetlands in Huntington Beach.
