So many of you ask me how you can support non-profits, especially when you’re so busy. I get it! Which is why I joined REI.
It’s also a great way to support causes you care about. Every year, the co-op invests in the work of nonprofit partners who help hundreds of organizations improve outdoor access for all. A great way to support a good cause in your spare time, simply
be being a member. Use promotional code MEMPERK2019 to save.

Laurel is a testament to accomplishing your dreams against all odds. She’s a beam of light and a beautiful business woman who really makes it work. I was super happy with Laurel’s standards and her commitment to her craft and impressed with this spirited chick who grew many of her brands awesome ingredients in her own garden. I continue to be blown away by what Laurel has accomplished in the past few years. Attending the opening of Laurel Skin’s Studio this weekend was like taking a big gulp of friendship Pride.
When I visited Laurel’s studio a few weeks ago, she was still preparing to open. We chatted a bit about what brands she was going to sell – many of my favorites, including La Bella Figura, Josh Rosebrook, Lurk and more! We talked about how the place was going to look, but I was absolutely blown away to actually see it finished in all it’s gorgeous glory!

Every single one of Laurel’s team, friends and family were beaming with pride and happiness.
If you’re in the Bay area you MUST stop by! You can take a look at Laurel’s gorgeous creation process, get a glimpse of the killer view of the Bay or shop the array of totally clean beauty, hair and makeup products, perfume, teas and tinctures Laurel has curated.
You can get a beautiful facial by Laurel’s new esthecian, my good friend Megan Porchen!
Megan is a beautiful green beauty expert a well as a total sweetheart. Megan and I got dinner while I was in town and she is so excited to be working with Laurel. I am so thrilled they’ve connected and Megan gets to do her thing in such a beautiful space!

There is nothing else like this place in San Francisco.
I am so happy for Laurel and wish her and her team the absolute best.
One of my favorite hobbies is traveling. Now that I have the Chevy Volt, I can zip around just about everywhere with little environmental impact, which feels so great!
I absolutely adore this travel bag for these spontaneous trips. It fits just about everything – from my hunky camera to my crystals, jewels, wallet, essential oils and books! It’s so wonderfully lightweight and the design and colors are eye-catching and beautiful.
The fact that it’s upcycled and local is a green beauty dream and definite perk! 🙂
In 2012, brothers Alec and Aric Avedissian founded RAREFORM. By intercepting billboards before they reach the landfills, RAREFORM is able to create unique, upcycled bags. Even better, RAREFORM currently manufactures its products locally in California and has joined Patagonia in donating 1% of its sales to benefit the planet.
RAREFORM is based in Santa Monica, California and manufactures the finest quality backpacks, bags, and accessories.
RAREFORM approaches each day as a learning opportunity, a chance to let good run wild.
This dress From The Yacht Club has been a serious comfortable favorite lately! Perfect for San Diego’s warm weather and day trips.
