PICNIC IDEAS WITH RUNA TEA

Last week, San Francisco had one of the hottest heat waves ever recorded. We are not equipped for scorching weather like that. Most homes here don’t have air conditioning so it’s important to find other ways to cool off. With that heat wave, I thought it would be the best time try these RUNA TEAS. This tea has a beautiful mission. The making of RUNA helps reforest the rainforest. RUNA is made from the guayusa (GWHY-YOU-SA) leaf ...

After talking to the sales associate, she convinced me. First, ...

They are the best closet staples because they make the perfect foundation for any outfit. Most of my outfits consist of a tee and a pair of jeans. This snake-skin tee was a perfect twist to a basic tee. I don’t usually love snake-skin print— I’m ...

FALL PLAID

shirt|| jeans|| booties|| bag|| sunglasses Fall is right around the corner! The best way to prepare your closet for fall is to stock up on plaid. I always incorporate plaid all through fall. Whether it’s a button up shirt, a shirt tied around my waist or a plaid scarf, I love having a pop of plaid. It makes even denim shorts look fall ready. I found this plaid top at Target. They have a new collection out called A New Day. They have so ...
