Pick of the week! January 14 2015

Once again we can thank the gods of Pinerest for this treat. Some of our resolutions are related to food so we searched the interwebs for yummy and healthier alternatives.

Many goals made at the new year include vows to eat healthier. We like this recipe of energy bites for a healthier alternative for when cravings strike. 

 

Here's the recipe for healthier, no-bake energy bites

1/2 cup chocolate chips (coco powder and stevia can be used for a low-cal substitution)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup oatmeal, dry

1/2 cup peanut butter (you can used pb2 as a low cal substitution)

1/4 cup honey

1 tbsp chia seeds

1/2 cup ground flax seed

Mix together all ingredients and enjoy

 

 

What are your goals for 2015?

Even though it feels like Summer here in California, Fall is around the corner!

Pick of the week! August 21 2014

As school begins and we say good bye to summer, it's time to start thinking about new shoes! Our ballet flats are amazing and so comfortable! My personal favorites are the Avalons because of the mermaid scales. 
Avalon is named after the only little town on Catalina Island--just off the coast of Long Beach in Southern California. It takes an hour to get there by boat with dolphins leaping in the waves along the way. Once you are there, no cars just golf carts buzzing around this riviera-like town. The water is deep clear blue - so clear you can picture mermaids dancing on the golden sand bottom.
These shoes go from work to play instantly. The blush color dresses up any outfit and adds a little shimmer while still looking professional. Pair them with a pair of skinny jeans and a white blouse or a sun dress!
I recently wore these on a work trip to Miami where I stood on my feet for 12 hours! It was craziness- but my feet did not need an ice bath after!
Shop either the Turquoise or Blush here

California Dreamin' May 28 2014

This summer we are so grateful to call the beautiful state of California home! Instead of planning trips to far off places, we're thinking of new ways we can further enjoy our beautiful golden state! For those of you who aren't familiar with the southern California area, we have sunshine nearly year round (except for June gloom) and mild temperatures of about 55-75 degrees (60 is a cold day). To say we're spoiled is an understatement!

One of the best things to do in the summer time is cruise down the famous Highway 1 or better known by locals as the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway).Even though the PCH runs from Big Sur in Northern California all the way down to San Diego area, our favorite part is from just north of Malibu to Santa Monica and Venice Beach. On this stretch of the highway, you can see breath-taking views of bright blue skies and crashing waves directly on the side of the highway. On our next free day, we are definitely taking advantage of this gorgeous (free) summer activity! 

What are you guys dreaming of doing this summer? Let us know!

Let's Be Mermaids May 21 2014

As the summer solstice quickly approaches, it has us dreaming about long sunny days at the beach. Summer is the time to relax, let loose and of course spend time soaking up the sun! Lately mermaids have been really popular in social media like Pinterest and Instagram and boy have they had us swooning. For summer we are pulling inspiration from this trend and saying "let's be mermaids." This mermaid craze has allowed us to revisit our childhoods and is a reminder of how much we really do want to be Ariel (but maybe in a more grown up way). Really, who doesn't want those long luscious locks, cool seashell bras and to be able to swim with dolphins all day? 
Anyway, with the San Jose sandals, the look of the glam straps (and Malibu Jane logo) give you some of those cool mermaid vibes that we all wish we had! They'll be a perfect addition to any beach babes summer wardrobe!
