Visual Diary: Baja California Eats

I am pretty sure my parents live closer to Mexico than LA, so it seemed reasonable that after 13 years of living in San Diego, they decided to go on a weekend trip to Baja California. This was my parent’s second time driving there and my first time joining them. We left San Diego around noon, drove through Tijuana, then…

Friday I’m in Love

We’re all busy, but the weekend (or le week-end as the French say) is an opportunity to wind down, catch up on your favorite podcasts, and maybe go on a picnic or two. But you don’t have to do it alone—we’re here to help guide you in the right direction!   Our inspiration this week comes to us in the usual…

I Was Busy Thinking ‘Bout Boys

I’m obsessed with the music video for Charli XCX’s new single “Boys.” A lot has already been written about how it “flips the male gaze on its head,” and you can find plenty of unofficial rankings of the 60 boys who appear in the video, and there’s even a “Boys” Snapchat filter, but I’d recommend you’d start by seeing the magic…

What I’m Listening to Now

Francois and the Atlas Mountains – Perpétuel Eté If anyone wants to take a similar photo to the one above, hit me up because it looks so fun! Maybe in the winter time when it’s cold enough to wear sweaters again. Or we could meet in San Francisco, where summers are always reliably cold. Anyway, the sweater-connected folks above are…

Almost the Weekend!

Hello friends! What are you up to this weekend? Check the list below if you need some light reading, art recommendations, a video to tide you over until Sunday (GoT!), or a weekend length home DIY. Need a weekend project? Paint a wall in ombre! We all know podcasts are my favorite form of media, but there’s even a few…

Slides on the Rise

I’ve got to admit- I’m having a real love affair with slides right now. They’re easy to put on, quick to throw off, and they are so darn cute. If you have a bright, summery pedicure, your toes can peek out so nicely. Casual summer barbecue? Slides. Out to drinks with friends? Slides. Work in a casual office? You got…

Your Next Summer Dinner Staple

Last week, I had the freshest, most flavorful lunch that also involved enough bread and protein to keep me full all day: a banh mi. Then I watched an intriguing instastory where Sara Forte made a veg version involving avocado (!). And suddenly, I couldn’t stop thinking about making my own. Luckily for me, the New York Times, Food &…

A Playlist We’re Looking Forward To

  All of us rad-ish writers have different things going on this summer, but one thing we all fit into our summer plans was to spend a weekend together in July to hang out, brainstorm about the blog, and soak up some much needed California sunshine (Santa Barbara, to be specific). For the drive up (or down, depending on who…

Your Friday Round Up

It’s Almost Summer! This song is about to become your summer body positivity anthem. “Mom jeans all day why you mad tho?” I’m thinking about making myself a cookbook of my favorite summer recipes- DIY here if you want to make one too.   Health and Beauty Now that Rihanna has one, are you considering a nipple piercing? All of…
