Healthy habits, per these real-life ladies

I grew up watching my mom make my parent’s bed and clean the kitchen after dinner every day without fail. She also baked on Sunday. I tell you this not to brag how wonderfully put together my mom is, but to open up a discussion about habits. Habits are both hard to create and hard […] Read more…

Artemis

style staple…this bag

As obnoxiously boo-ze and yuppy as it sounds (trust me I know), I believe in buying from independent designers and brands with eco-driven ideals. This is because the products are usually timeless in style and meant to last. How it’s made matters just as much. This mantra actually saves me money and can be applied to […] Read more…

A history of lady stoke

I’ve recently become enthralled with historical women explorers. I went on a mad dash ordering some memoirs and books about them including, “Eighty Days: Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland’s History-Making Race Around the World,” “West with the Night,” and “Passionate Nomad: The Life of Freya Stark.” Osa Johnson Yes, many of them had the means to […] Read more…

Pescadero Feature Image II

Pescadero = Big Sur beauty + country charm

In a world where women still have battles–whether emotional, financial or physical–to overcome, women empowering other women by sharing their […] Read more…

Joshua Tree

A dose of Joshua Tree medicine

Joshua Tree is a place to get lost in and leave feeling sun soaked and renewed, stepping out of the dusty golden tinged landscape. The sunrise and sunset are framed by outlines of the contorted spiky Joshua Trees and boulder studded rock formations. The park isn’t all sleeping boulder giants, it’s palms and vistas and hidden […] Read more…

Gear Guide on Sleeping Bags

  If you’re nothing like me, you don’t spend hours reading all the technical details about outdoor gear and you probably don’t have a closet – more like room – full of gear for all the conditions you’ll encounter on your adventures. My goal is to provide short and sweet gear tips and guides that […] Read more…

Grand Canyon

Rafting the Grand Canyon

  This past summer, my good friend Emily explored the Grand Canyon by raft — I was so jealous of her! I’ve been dreaming about doing it, but alas haven’t made it a priority yet. Anyway, I roped her into recounting her trip for us and am even more stoked to go after reading it. Enjoy! […] Read more…
