    Meredith loves hanging out in her flattering and easy-to-wear maxi wrap dress.  The wrap just layers itself around your torso and doesn't wrap all  the wayaround, making it comfy and easy to throw on and off.  The cinched waist accentuates your shape in all the right ways.  And the unique tie dye print speaks for itself.

  • Greek du jour - a super healthy dish for your inner God/dess

    Our boutique manager, Rachel,  went on a trip through the Greek Isles earlier this summer and has been creating mouth watering Santa Barbara inspired versions of some of her favorite dishes ever since. The Santa Barbara climate is similar to the Mediterranean in many ways -just check out our rad vineyards and olive groves- but we also are blessed with a very unique bounty of local produce.

    One of our favorite local, seasonal greens is purslane! This kinda crunchy and almost lemony tasting “weed” is high in vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids. It can usually be found at the farmers market in the spring through the late summer months.

  • Eating In Love: The path of pleasurable, peaceful nourishment

    We all know that the foods we eat are digested, metabolized, and become the building blocks of our bodies and source of our energy. You choose the foods that eventually become your physical body.

    For most of us, our daily food choices are generally a mixed bag of what we want to eat, what we believe we should eat, and what’s available. For better or worse, we have an enormous range of options when it comes to diet. Our grocery stores, restaurants and markets are abundant year round. On top of that, we live in a time and place when nutrition information is prolific and conflicting. There are experts claiming the silver bullet to health is found in a given diet: from paleo to vegan and everything in between. For every nutritional study there seems to be an equal and opposite study. When it comes to diet, we’re inundated with options.

    So how do you choose which foods are best for you? What is involved in that daily decision making process?
