A Slice of Life | Sayulita Guest Series by Stephanie Schechter

Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset
One afternoon during our Mexican adventure, we drove into the incredibly charming town of Sayulita. Adorable cafes and heladerías lined the cobblestone streets, intermittently dotted with handicraft, textile and artwork shops. The town has a decorative heart theme, which of course ups their cuteness factor tenfold. Coincidentally, local folk textiles use pom-poms on purses and pillows, so my Angie Pom Clutch fit right in!

A Slice of Life | Viva México! Guest Series by Stephanie Schechter

Pineapple Tank
Hola! I spent the last ten days surfing with my family in Mexico, in a beautiful area called Punta Mita. The town itself is pretty small, with an oceanfront main drag that includes a handful of restaurants and a tiny harbor that is home to about 20 ponga boats. There are several surf spots nearby, including pumping reef breaks and peeling point breaks. Because the surf was so plentiful, and September is off-season, we never ran into any crowds! The fish tacos were AMAZING, and the weather was gorgeous the entire trip, with clear skies and 90 degree turquoise waters. Viva México!

How To Travel with Coconut Oil

Coconut oil: aka the new lotion, eye makeup remover, sunscreen, deep conditioner, lip balm, bug repellant, deep conditioning treatment…and even deodorant. But if  you’ve ever attempted to travel with a jar of the magical oil, you may have found that the 76 degree melting point can cause quite an oily mess if left in a hot car or traveling to a tropical destination (which we’ll assume is the type of location you generally travel to). Even if packed in a jar, you’re walking on thin ice if you need to pack that jar in your purse or travel bag. After testing MANY different types of containers, I finally found one method that works. Read on to see what it is…
