Have you ever had an out of body experience in the middle of a moment and realize that one day you're going to look back on this day and pinpoint it to the start of a new beginning? Well this weekend was just that kind of moment. I've been giving happiness a lot of thought lately. If money can't buy it and you're unhappy when you don't have money, then how are you supposed to "get" happiness in this consumerist society that we live in? If happiness is in the journey and not the destination, then what are we headed towards? There've been countless articles written on the "keys to happiness" or on the "secrets of a happier lifestyle," but I'm not sure anyone really has the answer to these questions, especially not I. But after this past weekend, I've felt happier and calmer than I have in months.

To get back into the swing of things here, we're going to kick off the Fall season with a giveaway with Polette! As California natives, we know that you can never have too many pairs of sunnies! I've been wearing my Jimini pair to keep my cool through this insane heatwave in LA. It totally allows me to channel the boho babe as we (sorta) transition to Fall. Brandon has also been enjoying his pair of Linosa. We've partnered with Polette, an online optician that offers customizable eyewear including sunglasses and eyeglasses at affordable prices (lenses starting at $9.99!). Polette is generously offering one of our readers and his/her friend a pair of any eyewear that you desire. It's super easy--just head on over to our Instagram to enter! All you need to do is to follow us and @polette and tag a friend! Good luck! Giveaway goes on until October 19th!

One of the great (and sometimes not so great) things about LA is its vastness. Just one trip to the opposite side can make you feel like you're in a different city. One minute you're frolicking in alleyways near your apartment, and the next you're on the West side, splashing around in the ocean to escape the heat. After feeling (metaphorically and literally) landlocked for a while, it was indescribably calming to let the waves tickle our toes. Just standing there, unsure where the ocean began and the sky started, we reveled in this majestic sight until the sun set into the horizon.
