5 Ways to Enjoy the Beach During The Winter Months

“Let’s go to the beach on January 9th”, said no Angeleno ever.  Going to the beach during the winter months, especially in LA, when you can’t expose your skin and get a few shades darker, is considered to be pointless by many I know.

BE MINDFUL OF THE RESOLUTIONS YOU MAKE 

  This is how I feel about 2016 as it stands.  Fearless about the future of and rejoicing in what came before. Living every moment with the beauty that surrounds us, the possibilities and heights that one may reach with virtuous actions, and respecting all who surround us.  Be in the moment.  Let your resolutions… Continue reading BE MINDFUL OF THE RESOLUTIONS YOU MAKE

I’m definitely not buying the “flat stomach” gimmick, but can’t be bad to… Continue reading Ayurvedic Water Detox Recipe

Early Bird, Don’t Care

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Early Bird.”     I used to be very annoyed with the fact that I would wake up extremely early. The irritation of being up when it was dark out surpassed the tiredness I felt from sleeping a few hours less, which drained me even more.  I… Continue reading Early Bird, Don’t Care

FlowMosa and Mid Century: The spaces we create, the places we go

Moving back home to LA has been an adjustment on various dimensions. I was lucky to land back in LA with a cushion and support by staying at my parent’s home for a few months. Of course, this space, which I was able to call mine and should have fit right in, no longer felt… Continue reading FlowMosa and Mid Century: The spaces we create, the places we go
